At first glance, HowHub looks like a good way to diversify writing income as well as add another residual income source. I will update as I learn more, but here are some reasons why I am impressed thus far:
- HowHub was created by the owners of Article Dashboard, an online article database that has seen some success.
- Writers start off earning 50% of the Adsense revenue generated from their articles.
- Earnings increase to 100% (yes, that's right, all the earnings!) once a writer has referred 10 active users to HowHub.
Also, if you're winning for your eHow article keywords on Google, why not have additional articles with the same keywords on the front page, too? You'll monopolize those particular searches.
I would not advise putting duplicate content up on HowHub, however. Use the same or similar keywords if you like, but rewrite your articles or write new ones to keep the content fresh. Google prefers it.
HowHub articles are not published immediately after submitted; they must first be approved by an editor. Depending on how long this process takes, it could be cumbersome for writers used to the speed of Ehow publishing.
If you decide to give it a try, I'll see you at How Hub!
