Hubgarden awards

There are actually multiple different kinds of awards. Writers can gain awards for different actions on Hubgarden, each with their own value. Here is an outline:

Awards for Submitting Work

Article awards – These can be awarded by an editor when an article is published.
Question Awards - These can be awarded by an editor when a question is published.
Answer Awards – Is a question has received an award, top three answers to a question will also receive awards after a two week period from the questions publication date.

Other Awards
Prolific Award – This is an award given for an author submitting a predetermined number of submissions in a single month.
Milestone Award - This is an award given for an author submitting a large predetermined number of submissions to a hub.
Link Award – This is a special award which can only be obtained by trading links with another website or business owner.

Lots of Hubgarden awards
You'll be surprised how quickly awards add up

Each type of award has three different levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Each award level is assigned a different value by a hub editor; Bronze is the lowest value of the three, Silver in the middle, and Gold the most valuable.

Since each hub can assign different values to awards, that means that a bronze award on one hub could potentially be worth more than a gold on another. Checking each hub to determine the value of their awards is a great way to decide where you may want to submit your work, but we’ll get into more of that soon.

Hubgarden CPM

CPM is an acronym for Cost Per Mille, which is an old advertising term that has been adapted to the online world. What it means for Hubgarden writers is the amount that a writer will earn per 1000 views. The default is a CPM of $10, which translates to one cent each time an article is published. The CPM for a hub can be changed by the editor, and is another stat that writers may want to check when deciding where to focus their efforts.

CPM works differently for questions. Each submission has a set CPM, which defaults to $10. But with a question, that CPM is split between the author of that question, and its top three answers. This means answering questions can be as lucrative as asking them. Find out more about questions on Hubgarden.
