So What is Hubpages?

Hubpages is an online publishing site, where you can publish a post or Hub on a wide variety of subjects.
I have been a member for almost two years now. For most of that time I did not publish. Mainly due to my workload, I was studying for a BA degree and working part-time too. With the increase of available hours I have resumed writing om Hubpages.

Hubpages uses a modular system of capsules from which you choose text, maps, affiliate programs such as and Ebay. About one rhird of the pages space is left for advertising from Google Adsense, and some in text advertising is allowed and supported by

You can link to a variety of website or other Hubbers pages which increases your Hubkarma, a measure of how efficiently you are using the resources. Hubbers are also ranked according to how well huvs are judged by visitors. There are also several competitions for writing hubs every year, many competitions give cash prizes. There is currently a cash prize for the two best hubs published every day in April 2011.

When you first join, your hub score begins around 30 but can rapidly rise to 90, the gap between 90 and 100 (the maximum) seems much harder. Generally the higher your hubscore the more your hubs will be offered as links for others and so the more chance your posts will be visited by visitors and so increase the possible income from your hubs Google AdSense or Konterra accounts.

Hubpages is great fun as a platform for writers and many report residual income from hubs in excess of $1,000 after about three years of publishing. Hubpages is not a source of get rich quick cash but does provide opportunity for some long term cash generation.
