  1. Very interesting examples of buildings and architecture…

    I have a question…? How are you doing on HubPages when it comes to earning…? I heard it’s very hard to earn and the site is very complicated to use…

    • I have started publishing only from Oct 2018 in HubPages and Virily. I agree Virily is a lighter platform that is easy to use. HubPages is ranked well by search engines and many of my articles in their niche sites are in first page of Google search results. Traffic is picking up steadily. It might be Dec 2019 before I get my first payment. Traffic and earnings grow over time in HubPages. It is a slow and steady game there.
