Hubpages Review


I love Hubpages – drawn by peaachpurple



This is my review on Hubpages, a blogging website which I had been writing for 5 years.

Next year will be the 6th year of blogging, the longest ever for me.

Hubpages is similar to Blogjob, Squidoo, Helium.

My profile page is Peachpurple Hubpages

When you create a new article, it is called “Hubs” which is similar to “Blogs” as to Blogjob.

In this site, you will earn money through different programs or so-called “sites”

Wikinut Review

Why I gave up on Wikinut

I had joined Wikinut  in 2012.

I was hoping to increase my online earnings through writing various articles.

After writing ten posts at Wikinut, I realized that earnings there were low when converted from pound sterling £ to USD; at least that is the way it is for me.
My monthly earnings never went above 40 cents, which is very disappointing. 

That is why I had stopped writing there after ten posts.


Writing on Hubpages

I chose to focus on writing for HubPages instead where I earned every single day approximately 20-30 cents daily , where my monthly total up to USD$ 9, although not very high either, At least it is better than on Wikinut. However, I needed to write at 700 words per article in order to go through the team mimumim requirement.

Wikinut Referral 
Even though I stopped writing for Wikinut I still had to log in to the site now and then in order to check out my earnings and pageviews.

Surprisingly, I do achieved  £0. 001 cents daily even without any publishing article or leaving comments. 

In addition, I also learned that we can also earn on Wikinut by referring people to their site.

This gave me a little hope to boost my earnings. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as simple as I thought.

In order for me to earn from referrals , these new signed up writers who had used my referral had to publish their own articles, at least 10 of them.

Signups do not earn you any money at all. It is the publishing of articles that I will earn 10% of their earnings.

Hence in other words, if I had 10 people signed up under my referral, but none of them publish anything at Wikinut, I will not earn any money either. This is different from Blogjob and Hubpages.

Thereto, I gave up on writing short summary about Wikinut using my referral links.

Writing again at Wikinut

Instead, I started to focus on writing new articles 3 days once, 400 words to see how my daily earning goes. 

In the beginning it was hard to accept £ 0.001 cents per day.

Gradually, I started to share my new Wikinut articles at social media sites.

Then, my earning started to grow to £ 0.011 cents daily.

Having stopped writing since 2012 and starting again in 2015, I had finally managed to redeem my earnings £ 2.50 last month.

I love the moderators who read and check my articles before publishing them. Their comments and advises helped me to write better.

Although the daily earning is way too low, at least Wikinut pays the next day and Paypal cleared the payment immediately.
