I just discovered Hub Pages about a week and a half ago and I just love it. Creating hubs is fun and easy plus you cab profit in 3 ways.
1. Your Google Adsense code can be installed for adsense income
2. You can place eBay ads that are relevant to your hub topic
3. You can place Amazon ads that are relevant to your hub topic
You don't earn any money for writing your hub, but you do earn for the above 3 sources. One writer that I know on there gets $600 a month in Adsense income from their hubs. That's worth it if you ask me.
It actually didn't take me that long to create a hub. About 20 minutes which means in 1 hour I could create 3 hubs. Do that once per day and you will see earnings.
Hub Pages gives you a score and then based on your performance it goes up or down. My score went up almost immediately and currently I only have 4 hubs.
Here is a link to one of my Hub Pages so you can get an idea of what they look like and how they are written. You can also sign up to become my fan from there or sign up to become a writer, or both!
