Hubpages Is Where I Started Online 

Hubpages showed me that I could make money online - I knew other people did - but until you personally start getting cash in your account - it didn't feel real - well not for me anyways.

I  started my Passive Income blog to document my journey to making a full time income.

How To Make Money Online

I used to tell beginners to start with Hubpages because it was easy to get hubs ranked in the search results.

But times have changed and at the moment I am not entirely convinced that Hubpages is going in the right direction.

For a number of years now I have been focussing on my own websites - if you are looking to make money online I suggest you do the same.

If you are looking for a step-by-step course and forum to take you from keyword research through developing a site to making money online check out my  Keyword Academy review

I totally recommend this course - there is nothing better online that i know of - and you can check it out for $1 - no catch! However if you want to make money fast and easy - you will be sadly disappointed - if you want fast cash -get a job - if you want to build a buisness check out The Keyword Academy.
