Launched in 2006 by former Microsoft employees HubPages is a sharing revenue platform, with user generated content. It’s a place where users from around the world can create individual pages (Hubs), and earn money through affiliate and website marketing.
Users (Hubbers) can publish articles about any topic. There is simply no limit on variety of subjects you can find on HubPages, for example there are Hubs about: reviewing stuff, expert advice, recipes, lists, tutorials, lifestyle and health tips, fiction, poems, etc.... However there is strict quality control and each article goes through rigorous approval process. Only original articles that have never been published elsewhere are accepted. HubPages article guidelines suggest articles to be at least 1150 words, have short (under 65 characters) titles, contain attributed high resolution pictures, videos and links to relevant sites.
The platform encourages users to publish as many useful articles as possible and sorting it in niche specific Hubs.
