I Wonder If HubPages is Still Worth It
Most content I see on HubPages is of high quality. Maybe I'm just lucky, but I see a lot of really good content on HubPages. I believe some of my hubs are also first class, and many of them have been designated Editors' Choice hubs. Yet my 149 hubs have only earned me $2.46 for the first eleven days of this month. And I wonder why. It's hard to believe it's a quality issue.
We have all noticed with the advent of Bubblews that many writers have been spending a lot of time there. Some of us have also been spending a lot of writing and reading time at Persona Paper. Those are both places that didn't exist two years ago when HubPages was doing better. Could it be that much of the audience for HubPages really was other Hubbers and that they now are spending more viewing time on other sites instead of reading other hubs?
Or could it be that people looking for information are now looking to YouTube first instead of to written content sites? Could it be that writers are gravitating to social blogging sites because they are easier and more fun and leaving their hubs to gather what residual income they can while not interacting much on the site?
Or is it simply that I have only 148 hubs and 842 posts at Bubblews? If that were true proportionately, then if 148 hubs bring me $2.46 in eleven days, 842 Bubbles should bring me only 13.99 in eleven days. Instead, 842 Bubbles have earned me $15.35 in eleven days. But of those 842 BubblesI would guess at least one hundred or more are ruined and shouldn't be counted in the mix. I know eight are, and there are at least 700 I've not had time to check.
Could some of you who have more hubs than I give me some feedback on how your hubs are doing? Is it that I should just write more hubs to increase their value? Three years ago or so I used to make close to $50 a month on HubPages with only 80 hubs. So quantity may not make that much difference. Do you think HubPages is still worth the extra effort it takes to write there?
