Full Review

Hubpages.com is a user-generated revenue sharing website. Or in English its a website which will allow you to publish your own webpages - called hubs - and in exchange you share the revenue from advertising on the site with the company.

Hubpages provides a very easy interface which even a beginner with no knowledge of how the Internet can get going. In fact there are a number of "real world" published authors who write at hubpages - as their first foray into the post-print world!

Which Content Makes Money on HubPages?

A hub can be about anything you want it to be but the advice is it you want to make money on hubpages you need to choose topics which are:

Content That Solves A Problem

Although writing about Fluffy your new cute adorable kitten can be fun - you won't make much money from it. Write an article that talks about how to house train Fluffy and you may well be in the cash.

Timeless Content

Although I do quite well with seasonal hubs the best earners are the stuff that doesn't date - the timeless questions like: how to change a light bulb or how to clean house! There are no dates on hubs so I have hubs which make me money that I haven't edited for months.

Write Content That Is In Demand

Although writing about an obscure topic which you love may be satisfying it will rarely make you money. I love competitive ballroom dancing but its a very small market. Look for ideas about what is being talked about in terms of latest products and then create a more "timeless" version - the latest Barbie doll series maybe - but write about a number of the popular models in that enduringly-popular toy.



In Closing

Hubpages has become a very popular site. Google ranks hubs very well and the community is one of the strongest and most vibrant on the Internet. They must be doing something right!
