Hub pages on the war path again
They must have sent me about 25 emails in the last week as my articles were not up to scratch. I just deleted them as cannot be bothered. They were one of my many learning curves as to writing on the net. And no they were not to fussy about my englsh so never pushed it. I used to earn a lot there. But disconnected my earning compacited about two years ago so not worried about those articles.
I just spent the past hour deleting a number of my Hubpages articles, too. I originally had over 150 articles transferred from Squidoo to Hubpages. They were earning about $100 a month at Squidoo. Now they earn less than $1 a month. I only have 32 left that are published and active. I have about 30 or 40 others with the potential for me to fix up and salvage them. The rest of them will get deleted. It will be worth the effort if I can get back to earning over $10 a month from them, although that is pretty sad and, I think, may not even be possible.
yes it is disappointing. I originally loved the support we had at hubpages in the beginning and then the back biting started so thats when I found infobarrel. They were great then too with lots of support as well and then downhill it went. Oh well thats life
I deleted my account in 2015 after my Squidoo article earning went from paying the bills to paying for a pizza. I do not know how anyone earns significant money on any site other than their own these days.
Hubpages now have what they call niche sites. Each site is about a different subject. If you submit your article to one of the sites it will be accepted if it meets their high standards for the sites. Otherwise it will stay at Hubpages. I suggest you check out one of the sites to get a feel for what the editors of each site wants.
My earnings have tripled since they tried this project. The first month or two wasn't good and then they took off in the search engines. The articles left at Hubpages are doing much though.
Hubpages was bought by a new company called Maven. They are big, because not only do they have their own company, but bought Hubpages and another company. They claim that you can't make it unless you are big now. Google won't pay attention unless you are.
I'm also doing better than ever before at Hubpages network.
I saw one of your articles while browsing the forums for more info on Maven. Was trying to figure out if they operated separately from HP but kept being referred back to the HP site. Based on an article the owner said they were getting frustrated with the constant Google updates making a mess of things and trying to fix the issues to stay compliment was getting a bit much.
