Infobarrel versus Hubpages in numbers

By Edited Feb 3, 2016 2 6

Infobarel and Hubpages are two popular article and revenue sharing websites. I am a fan of both of the websites, and while owners of the two websites, might see themselves in competition, I believe success of both sites will only help both companies.

I am sure there are plenty of people like myself who leverage both websites to make money and get back links to their websites. Many people have written articles comparing the sites, but I thought it would be fun to see how the two sites stack up in numerical terms.

Interesting stats on the comparison between Infobarrel and Hubpages. While Infobarrel may have a way to go I think it is going to be a solid source for some extra income and also very complimentary to any Hubpage article.

As obvious from the stats you posted, HubPages is doing great. Why do you think Info Barrel is lagging behind in terms of traffic?

Yes, I'd like to know why you think this too.

I think Hubpages has been around for longer. Some hubs focus on celebrities which I am sure get a lot of traffic, but they don't necessarily make money from advertising like Adsense.

One more bit of info. Hubpages has broken into the top hundred sites and is currently resting at number 99.
I agree both sites are good and a lot of us have discovered Info Barrel more recently so, it will also gain in numbers as time goes by.
