What are HubPages OR wouldn’t you like to be a hubber too?

Have you ever heard of Hubpages? You know I probably should have, but I had not heard of them until I happened to open up an email that looked intriguing and read about HubPages – hubbers and a whole range of interesting things. So if you have heard of this phenomenon then your one step ahead of me on this one. If you haven't let me explain what the rage is all about… HubPages is an Internet community (web2.0) where users can publish content and gain information about specific subjects. It was first rolled out in 2006 and has been gaining popularity at quite a rapid rate. As a matter of fact:
  • HubPages has a Google Page Ranking of 6
  • Google Loves HubPages it is looked at as authoritative.
  • HubPages has more than 56,000 links coming in from yahoo
  • Alex Ranking is 220

What does this mean to you? When you become part of the community on HubPages you will be able to increase the SEO standing on your websites and blogs by strategically placing back links to your online businesses. You can also pump up your affiliate marketing revenues – and make extra money with Adsense… But how, you may be asking? You do it by going onto HubPages, registering and making Hubs of your own. Hubs are essentially articles on virtually anything you would like to write articles on. You can write articles on your interests, your business, your expertise… I am sure you can see where I am going with this, in a marketing sense this is as good as gold, you are establishing yourself as the expert while gaining a following and linking back to your website – blogs and RSS Feeds… This makes you a hubber, HubPages is user friendly, which is something I cannot say about a lot of the web2.0 sites I am looking into. One of the unique things about HubPages is its ranking system. Each hub or article have a ranking between 0-100, hub scores and total number of hubs created are taken into account when the hubs are ranked. Oh no, I can just hear you now, how can I write yet another article? I have the answer!! You can recycle some of the articles you write in your blogs and make them into hubs, that will make your life a little easier and perhaps get the word out about you a little faster. As a matter of fact, that is exactly what I have done on a few my hubs… As with learning anything it is great to be able to look at the actual item and see what I am talking about below you will find a list of hubs I have really enjoyed, and may be profitable for you as well! Sign-up you too can earn money take a look at some of my favorite hubs…

  2. Hi Pamela...

    I wonder where all the web 2.0 will end!??? Each week there seems to be a new social network thing to get involved with. But this one does look good... and I like the idea of it being user-friendly!
    Twitter and squiddoo are also good to get visibility... and I guess the list goes on and on!

    hmmmm can we get another couple of hours added to the day to fit it all in!
