I have been reading a lot from fellow members of The Niche Blogger who’ve informed me that eHow likes to delete a lot of articles for random reasons.
Since I like my articles to stay and earn me money for the LONG term I figured it would be safer to get more of my marketing articles put to use on HubPages as opposed to eHow.
Plus, comparing some other things….
HubPages makes it much easier to get backlinks than eHow. Once you get your HubPages account high enough (I think it is over 70 or 75 score) your links and rss feeds turn into follow instead of no-follow. Which means, you will start getting some good link juice to your niche blogs.
eHow on the other hand is always no-follow, which means your links don’t help your blog rankings. I have gotten some traffic from both though so the eHow articles aren’t completely useless.
Income Per Article
To be honest, I have some articles on each of them that haven’t made much of anything and I have some that have made some decent cash.
Over the short term I think you could make more per article on eHow, but i’ve heard so many stories of some great earning articles getting deleted randomly.
I would feel safer having them on HubPages knowing they aren’t going anywhere even if they do make sightly less because I know over the LONG term i’ll probably make more with them.
My eHow vs Hubpages Conclusion
I am not going to stop eHow submissions completely, but I am not going to use them nearly as much as I was planning to. I am having both residual income and backlinks from both HubPages and Associated Content so I think i’ll stick mainly to them for my extra marketing articles.
