4 ways to manage your Hubs, and double your money over night.

This time of the year, everyone is worried about their finances, and looking for ways to make extra cash.

For me, I've found amazing, and super simple ways of making that happen, all while working from home.

I've been working hard on constantly updating my freelance blog, all the meanwhile, working on two other content mills, and getting started on writing a book. Needless to say, this has been one of my busiest years yet.

The question that everyone keeps asking me is: How do I make money from home on line?
Well, the answer itself may be simple, but believe me when I say it takes a lot of hard work.

One of the ways that I make my money is by writing on this Site: Hubpages. I fell in love with it because I get to write about whatever I want. I have several niches, including: money, business, family, and health. If you want to make money by writing on this website, the first thing that You have to do is take your work SERIOUSLY. There is no other way around it.

How do you take your work seriously? Well, the simple part is to write, and keep on writing until you can no longer write anymore, and then sneak in one or two more hubs before you are done. Yes, it's simple if you love to write. The hard part is what you have to do after you publish your hubs.

When you write, the only way to make money from your work is to get traffic to your site. This is done by constantly marketing your hubs, and making sure that you follow up on your comments.

Since it can be hard to write more than 3 hubs a day, or sometimes just the one, many writers simply focus on marketing their hubs, and making sure that they get the traffic that they need to their work. This can take a lot of work, but it doesn't have to turn into a headache!

These are 4 easy ways of managing your Hubs to continue making money from them.

  1. Keep your Hubs updated. Make sure that your hubs have up to date information that can help your readers. The biggest problems that many writers have these days, is that their hubs or other articles are sometimes outdated. You don't necessarily have to write a new hub everyday, just make sure you go back, and read your old work, and make sure that the information is fresh. If you change one thing or two, it can be like writing a new hub.
  2. Update your about me section. Working on a new project? Adding new niches to your site? Well, if you are then tell your friends, by updating your about me section on hubpages. Whenever I do this, my profile and hub views double almost overnight. When you are a great writer, people want to know more about the person behind the words.
  3. Remember to respond to your comments! This is perhaps one of the most important things that you can do on Hubpages. Why? because you show people that you are interested in their opinion, and it also increases your traffic.
  4. Include Links on your Hubs. Since I began to write on Hubpages, I've found that traffic to my blogs has quadrupled. This is mainly because I make sure to link my hubs at least once to my blog. Doing this is a great way to ensure that you create a steady form of traffic to other blogs, or websites that you may be working on. Not only that, BUT you can also increase your Adsense earnings!

So, here are some of things that you can do to increase your earnings on Hubpages, and you can use these tools to increase traffic to other websites too!

Have fun making money!

Hi Jess, have you always been this focused about writing or are you trying to achieve certain financial goals? Three hubs a day seems impossible on any consistent basis. I love HP as you do and I write because I have so much I want to say. I am more comfortable percolating the ideas and doing research so that each article feels complete and polished, but this obviously adds to the time.

Then sometimes I just whip something out and it's just as good so maybe being more diligent would be ok. I've been here about 2 years so even one per day would be 730 hubs. I seem to be 1/10th there.

Thanks for the tips, I admire your stamina. =:)

LisaKoski profile image

LisaKoski 4 years ago from WA

I've read that one way to increase traffic to a hub is just to add more to it if it's too short. Do you agree with this?

Some of my articles have all of the information I could think of to put into them and I don't want to fluff it up just to make it longer. I can see how editing and updating them would help but just adding length doesn't make sense to me since it seems like it could drag on and become boring rather than be concise and more interesting.

You always have great advice and I can only hope that one day I can also work from home just writing until I can't anymore!


Jessi10 profile image

Jessi10 4 years ago from Lancaster, CA Author

You know, I've been asked that very question on more than one occasion. I guess it all depends on the Hub. I have hubs that are quite long, because I stuff them with information, and I have other hubs that are merely 300 words long, and they do just fine. I guess its all about the type of Hub, and what people find interesting.

You can definitely try to make your Hubs longer and see how that works for you. I would!

Jessi10 you are amazing. I enjoy reading your hubs. They are so helpful. Everything you mentioned is working for me. And, you reminded me that I need to go update my profile. Like you said, the most critical thing to do is to just keep writing. I don't pop out three hubs a day, although I would really like to advance to that level someday soon.

Jessi10 4 years ago from Lancaster, CA Author

Thank you so much for reading! I appreciate your comment. I'm so glad that my tips are working for you! I haven't gotten around to writing more, but believe me when I say, I want to reach my 100 Hubs soon! But then again, that's what writing is all about, having fun, and making sure that your readers like everything you have to offer, and that you help them.

I hope you continue to post more Hubs, and that you reach the success that you are working so hard for!

Good luck! Hope you enjoy more of my Hubs!

Good tips and some sensible advice for those looking to earn online. Updating does work, and the links help feed your other income sources. Replying to comments is something I am behind with (sorry Ya'll ... I'll get there), but I do try to answer any questions asap. I like the profile idea ... this is something I have neglected for a while, at least since I listed my hubs.

Sharing this to help others, up and useful.

You always have such good advice. :) I love reading your hubs and I've witnessed exactly what you've said. Every time I go back and edit a hub, I get more traffic. Every time I tweak my profile page, I get more traffic. I need to work on the blog part, but you're absolutely right there, too. AND, I always try to comment - I find that when I leave lots of comments, I always get more followers and views. It's also a lot of fun. :)
