    This is my first guide so I hope I'll explain it well.

    What is HubPages?

    HubPages is a revenue sharing website. Writers write there and get 60% of the earnings, while HubPages keeps 40%. Some people have accused HubPages of being a scam because it keeps 40%, but I can confirm that it is a legit site.

    Make money for writers

    If you can write, even if your writings is bad and has a lot of grammar mistakes, you can make money on HubPages. The site isn't you english teacher, it just wants to make money, even if you are a bad writer. It is also useful in building backlinks because it has a page rank 8 (last time I checked). I wrote on HubPages for a while and got a lot of traffic to my website and made some extra with HubPages, there were times when I even thought of abandoning my blog and just write on HubPages.

    Make money for non-writers

    HubPages has a unique referral system. If you promote a revenue sharing site and have an affiliate link from that site it will automatically bring you to the sign up page of that site. For example, while watching a YouTube video about Squidoo, everyone will have an affiliate link in the description and that affiliate link will immediately bring you to the sign up page. And that can sometimes scare some people.
    But not in HubPages. There you can turn any Hub (a site that is written by a user) into an affiliate link. If you go to HubPages and scroll to the bottom you'll find a "link to this page" link. If you have a HubPages account, simply find a hub of your interest, click the "link to this page" link and promote it. I have a FaceBook account with 500 friends (and I only know 1% of them in real life) I shared a few affiliate links, I got between 70 and 100 cliks on them and 3 of those clicks resulted in a sign ups.

    Do you know how much will you get for those sign ups, well, it's only 10% but they last for life. That's right, you will get 10% for everything those guys write. And they were hard working, I got an extra 30$ a month for doing nothing. That may sound a little, but it's basically free money. Shut up and take it.

    What you need?

    You need an Amazon Associate and Adsense account to make money. That's what I used. I think you can use PayPal, but I didn't. I simply entered my ID's and got it immediately on my Adsense and Amazon Associates accounts.

    Warning:

    Unfortunately, I don't work on HubPages any more. Why? I was banned for breaking their TOS. And this is the most important part of this guide. Don't put HubPages affiliate links into Hubs you have written. I learned it the hard way.

    Hope this guide was helpful to some of you and I hope you'll take action.

    Edit:

    This idea just popped into my head.

    If you have scrapebox I would recommend you to find a "Make money with HubPages" hub and create a lot of backlinks with that site as you referral link, then after people click it and see all the features they will sign up you will make more money.

    Just an idea.

    Good luck to all of you.

    First 3 months was around 5$ per month, after 3 months around 15$ and later was 30$ a month.

    I call it stealth affiliate marketing. If you have a FB page with a big audience on a certain topic/niche I would go for this.
    Another option is if you are part of a big group on FB.
