HubCamps, and HubMeets, and HubClubs, Oh My!
One of the best things about HubPages is you, our amazing community members! We’ve created HubCamps, HubMeets and HubClubs in order to help you become better Hubbers and meet your fellow community members.

Hubbers Socialize in Melbourne, Australia
Last week, Australia saw its first HubMeet (HubPages social meetup) when Hubbers Suzanne Day, Kangaroo Jase, and May PL got together at the Stolberg Beer Cafe in Preston – the three Hubbers, plus Richard, May’s Husband (and hopefully soon-to-be-Hubber) got together to chat, share tips, and talk all things HubPages in the real world!

Best of the Web

She shared that one of her friends was recently diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic…Read More

The Secret to Finding High-Traffic Topics for your Hubs
Over the last four years, I’ve published over 150 Hubs in my livelonger account, and have experimented with various types of topic sources. Some of my Hubs have been major hits, with over 100,000 views and several hundreds of dollars in my AdSense account; others barely got any views at all. Let me share with…Read More
Accolades: Gotta Catch ’em All!
You have seen them before- those little badges lined up under Hubbers’ profiles boasting their superior involvement in the community, number of Hubs published, followers, etc… Accolades are a great way to strut your stuff on HubPages, and the only way to collect them is to be an active member of the community and to continue to…Read More
