Becoming More Successful on Hubpages.com
Don't Give Up!
So, I started a "30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge" two months ago. I was really trying to get the 30 hubs done within a month, but I only got to number 7 because life got a little too busy. At first I was down on myself, but then I decided that I can just continue the challenge now. There is no reason that I need to give up. To be successful on Hubpages, you need to persevere because success doesn't happen quickly and it doesn't happen if you are not putting in the work. I have yet to experience any type of financial success on Hubpages, but I will admit that I have seen an increase in my views/volume (more on that later).
Read my Hub about the start of the challenge, that I didn't successfully complete yet!
- The Beginning of my "30 Hubs in 30 Day" Challenge!
I am starting a Hub Challenge: 30 Hubs in 30 Days. I have outlined some general advice on how to navigate a Hub Challenge, such as how to prepare yourself, writing and publishing the hubs, and doing what works best for you. I hope I am successful in
Consistency is Key!
I've noticed that you really need to write consistently (at least at first) to become successful on Hubpages.com. Don't expect tons of paypal pay-outs with only a handful of hubs. I've been a member of Hubpages for over a year now. But at the time of writing this hub, I have less than 15 published hubs. I am continuing the hub challenge now to force myself to generate more hubs. And more hubs = more views, which = more ad views, which = more earnings. When I originally started the hub challenge, I quickly wrote 7 hubs. When I wrote those hubs, my view count got significantly higher and I started earning a little bit more money. I haven't reached a $50 pay-out yet, but there has definitely been an improvement in my earnings. Before I started the challenge, I was only seeing about 50 cents per month. Now, I am raking in almost $5 per month. It doesn't seem like much, but I know that the more hubs I write each month, the higher that number will get.
Also, writing consistently is imperative to being accepted into the Apprenticeship Program. When I applied a few months ago, I was denied because I wasn't consistent. I will re-apply in a few months when I am confident that I have been writing consistently.
Certain Topics are More Successful
This is probably different for everyone, but my most successful hubs (that get the most views) are the ones about "travel". I wrote my travel hubs in the first month of being a member on hubpages.com, and they have received views every single month since. I can't say that about some of my other hubs. So, write about a few different topics that you are interested in and watch them for roughly 6 months. See which ones are the most popular, and then write more hubs on that topic. I plan on writing more travel hubs in the near future. Because if they generate more views, then they generate more money. And that's what success on Hubpages is all about!
