What is Hubpages?

Today I am sharing another guest post with you about Hubpages. This is another great site to write at home! It is from Clarissa. You can check out here blog as well!

Hubpages is a publishing platform that allows anyone to publish literally anything as long as it is unique content. Anyone can publish anything from short stories to articles to poetry. As long as it is not taken from anywhere else on the Internet then it is perfectly fine to publish it on Hubpages.

Signing up or Hubpages is free and easy. If you have an email address you can sign up. You will be earning through several different venues such as Google Adsense so you will need an Adsense account. Don't worry, that is free too. Hubpages also has their own ads program where you can earn from people reading your articles. It is a lucrative venue to use and can earn you decent money if you get enough readers.

Other ways to earn through Hubpages is the eBay program and Amazon. This is where you add eBay and Amazon products to your Hubs. You will earn a commission every time someone purchases something from eBay or Amazon through your links. If you pick the right keywords or products, you can earn pretty good through these too.

You will need to create unique content that is 100% your own writing. If they find you are copying from someone else online, your account could be suspended. You can publish anything you want as long as it is not in a derogatory manner. Remember, you are writing for a lot of people so you will want to write good quality PG content. Hubpages can be a fun place to write, publish and earn if you use it the way it is supposed to be used.

Another cool thing about Hubpages is the Google Analytics section where you can check how your traffic is doing and where it is coming from. This is free to sign up and use also.

To recap:

Hubpages is free to sign up using your email address, a user name and password.

You can earn through several platforms including Google Adsense, Hubpages Ad Program, eBay and Amazon.

You need to write unique and family friendly content.

Some people are earning pretty good through Hubpages but it could take quite some time. You should develop a following on there and follow people back. You should also read and comment on others hubs so they will do the same for you. Publish as often as you can also. Basically, it is just like a blog where you can write about what you want and earn from it at the same time. Just relax and enjoy yourself when writing for Hubpages because that is what it is all about, Fun!
