Earning your keep

Working hard digitally will definitively pay off in the long term, and if you don't ever take your eyes off of the prize. You need to adhere to some very stringent rules and regulations first before you are to think of making such an effort become truly effective though.

The purpose of this article is not to spell out some tricky magic formula of sorts that you might think could make it all happen on call when you choose it to occur, nope this isn't that sort of article. Actually this article is the proof that perseverance, true dedication, attention to detail, acceptance of constructive criticism from others, and the willingness to go as hard as ever to achieve your online success is all the means to making it today.

There's load more technical things to take notice of as well, which are the elements that make a web page have its attractive qualities to it all, but most of all its your motivation in the end that will also help you to locate all the relevant and useful information that can save time, rather than wasting a great deal of your efforts doing things that don't work at all anymore on the web and mainly because Google has changed everything.

Important things to consider prior to publishing any content

  • Make sure that you are aware of the platform you are using, all of its functions, tooling available, and learn to study at great depth all of the rules, and the terms of use there.
  • Learn what it takes to create an attractive webpage, articles will need to have imagery that is relevant to the subject matter, and annotation where applicable (legal use of images).
  • Social elements are in place here on Hubpages and elsewhere so be advised that everything we do is being monitored by everyone, and anyone, as well as bot programs.
  • Our articles go through a rigorous inspection process today in order for them to be given a seal of approval, so learn about creating useful articles that can become a sort of Internet resource, and especially a hubpages resource.
  • If you utilize any content from a third party website other than from yourself, do make sure to provide the required link attribution with annotation back to such a web location from which you used it from, such as in Wikipedia. (HP linking rules and policies are towards the end of the link capsule article)
  • Study up on all the areas you can from the Hubpages learning center.

How CloudExplorer made it to top 25 on hubpages

I would be lying if I told you that I have no idea how I made it to the Top 100 list, and to become part of the actual top 25 hubbers with over 136,000+ published hub authors here and statistically. It would be totally absurd actually, what I will tell you is that I have written close to 100 hubs for the hubpages community 97 to be exact out of 330 hub articles published.

I done so purely from the origination of all of my travels and experiences of being highly active here for the full course of a year and 4 months time. Also from communicating a great deal with fellow writers, learning much from as many veteran hubbers as I could locate, and from the HP learning center as well as HP Staff members/hubpages Elite (now called the Team welcome wagon) hub articles.

There are many ways to fight the low web traffic issues today, but if you don't have much time to do it in a day, well it will be very difficult indeed. A single article can help recover your low stats, but this article needs to be a powerhouse of evergreen awesomeness, also known as a "Stellar Hub". If you haven't yet checked onto the Hubpages Learning Center lately, I think it would be a great idea to do so.

Tips from the wise:

There's many articles on such an HP location that will definitely help your hubs stand out, if you in fact choose to implement and follow the guidelines there as best you see fit. Another highly useful one is on how to "Augment Self Optimization".

Mastering the techniques in those two articles has helped me a great deal recently with fighting the low web traffic drops, and its sky rocketed me to the top 100 position here on hubpages for the month of November based on fellow hubber Alocsin's article entitled "Top 100 Hubbers by Traffic Percentage for November 2012: Are you on the List?" His statistical report from Alexa on November 7, 2012 of hubpages authors.

Another interesting article by Mark Knowles captures the true reason for most of these issues hubbers are experiencing today and its titled "What Happened to My Hubpages Traffic?" Its actually a video hub that is highly informative, with charts and all, and I highly recommend everyone to check out his take on the whole issue for us hub writers.



Powerful 2 hour presentation on Google Panda recovery issues

The web is vast, the social web is making things even harder besides Google's updates

Its intense all the time on the social web, but I had to readjust myself and focus more on my writing, and sharing fairly to achieve well balance web traffic and during the worst traffic drops ever

Achieving top 25 on Hubpages was intense, but worth it in terms of web traffic statistics

Its hard to believe that I actually hit number 25 on the entire network of hubpages for the month of November. I have no plans on letting up the brakes on publishing high quality hubs, as well as consistently editing all the older hubs or low quality ones I already have published. Its full steam ahead, if anyone wants join me you can. Feel free to keep on pumping out these super intense hubs packed with useful relevant info people truly need today. Its becoming the only way for me to survive today, and by self optimizing each article up to its finest quality possible.


To start as a no name hubber last year, and to become statistically positioned at the top of any network online, let alone a super intense prestigious writers network online isn't any easy feat to have accomplished neither. I worked my digital tail off learnng to establish my written works here, and I been going at it non-stop from day one sharing, supporting others on and off of hubpages fairly both nightly and daily.

So I highly recommend if folks are really serious about writing today, and online. You need to get with the program, I mean the new compliance with that cool hub hopper is a great start, plus if you going to follow people try to do it in an honest way, share with your fellow writers, read their articles if you have time, comment to them whenever possible, and most of all edit your old articles that got idled, it is imperative to see better results.


Editing your hub articles is the single most important factor

This shows the slow uphill fight my location here began winning during the month of November transitioning from October's end cycle of massively low stats, I suffered a total of 4,000+ views drop after the Panda update

A 1 year overview, notice the trend begin to take a huge decline, this is where I had to begin working smarter and edit like crazy

The 5,000+ views mark towards the end is the current indication of the upwards growth my articles are beginning to see, after countless efforts to edit errors

This shows the current level which is beginning to climb up a great deal, and I am maintaining the upward stats battle day by day, of editing each article after article, correcting errors if any, adding higher quality relevance and content

Google leads all other sources for web traffic so complying with their rules and regulations for SEO, and website standards is paramount today

So how did I really make it to top 25 in terms of web traffic

What really happened is I only saw a 4,000+ views per month traffic drop, and maintained my views with intense hubtivity, 2 hubs per day consistent publishing and it keep me at 10,000 views per month give or take ever since Google updated their search engine. My views had peaked at 14,000+ views though before the Panda updates, and I was hurt by the drops, but remained determined to fight it by going back to editing all my low performing hubs, and the idle hubs indication that hubpages had once provided us helped me to locate them all.

Once I began editing each hub, I saw massive increases since they were really in need of editing, this was how I coasted up and up and maintained my views since then, and remain vigilant at fighting the low traffic drops by working as smarter as I could, and going harder then ever.

Editing your articles works wonders when you do it right. I edit everything, titles first, images second, video content third, grammatical errors (A huge problem of mine I intend to fix permanently), spelling (Minor one), irrelevant links, content positioning, capsule placement, and so much more.

Anywhere from content repositioning you name it, was the frenzy I had to go through, but I took a much wiser approach to it all by editing only 5 hub articles per day. The amazing thing to me that had occurred is, after each time I hit the publish button, and shortly after all the re-work had been completed.

My hub traffic instantly began to pick back up like I was sitting on a piston cylinder with gaseous pressures awaiting to be unleashed. I wish I would of known long ago, but at least now things are working much better in terms of normal traffic increases. Plus I had learned a valiant lesson in the process about what high quality means, over that of writing for shear quantity in numbers of hubs or volume of words per hub article.



Establish true effective communications on social platforms

Social communications helps us all, but sharing fairly on those social networks is the number one determining factor as to how you will fair off better (Try not to overdo it on any single network, and play fair)

Earning from hub hopping poll

Would you give hub hopping a try for earning revenue?

  • Oh yeah baby
  • Nope, no thanks I stick with just writing and editing to earn my keep
See results without voting

Hubpages is much more automated today

When you have time you need to study up much of what that cool new hub hopper has for us all, definitely go check it out if you haven't yet tried it. Look at all that it details, because now us humans are in charge of the scanning and rating all of our hub articles on Amazon's Mechanical Turk (A cool way to earn from hub hopping today), and its where the new hub hopper has been located as well and besides on the hubpages network.

All of our latest and most recent hubs get rated on a much more intensive scale there, and it pays to score on all levels with them, and definitely before it hits them search engines if it is lucky enough to pass human scrutiny.

This will definitely help you to at least see all of the areas of acceptance, and that of the disapproval scoring zones, and if your writing is not scoring high enough of a rating, well it will instantaneously be a deterrent for you to get lift off digitally, and even if you gain a social following with them. Socially some articles will get lucky and are able to keep your stats afloat, but do not depend on the social elements alone for such things.


Hard work digitally equates to working smarter digitally

Don't work harder, work much smarter on how to master your content delivery to that of the screen, make sure you do all the required research prior to publishing content to avoid from losing more web traffic in the near future

To truly earn your keep takes hard work digitally

You must work on your wording, and how you position content, how you make your articles have relevance on all levels imaginable. Are they useful, do they provide a resource that others online may be able to utilize to locate things or information that they are indeed searching for. Do your articles have attractiveness visually, are they going to keep your viewers coming back for more and more.

This is what you need to think about before, and after you decide to put anything into writing, come up with an evasive plan of action before making any decisions such as what topics and subjects you think will be the most relevant at that given time of year. Will people feel that your article is a show stopper, something so uniquely written that they have no choice but to share it for you. So if you produce such high quality literature, and SEO savvy content as well, well you will literally and digitally blow them away over time.

Outside methods of fighting web traffic drops

I merged my writing on hubpages with that of my Youtube video channel during the mid summer time in 2012 and things are looking much better, plus I write with a fury unlike no other, and so I fight all the traffic drop literally with every word I place into action as well as content research I partake in locating, and annotating onto each article for greater visibility and real world relevance.

I also decided to do so because of the fact that I sensed we were going to get hit by something huge, and it was a wise decision to do so for sure, because Google and Hubpages hit us all with updates that was compared to the stock market crash of 2008, as well as when the web and HP got hit with the first Google Panda update back in February 2011.

Wow Cloud!!!

This is one phenomenal hub. God bless you . . . you are like the EverReady Bunny ---- non stop, even on Thanksgiving!!! All in an effort to just help all of the rest of us. You are the best of the best.

If we all do not benefit from this hub (when I start writing for money), then we are just a lost cause. LOL As with this hub, there are no excuses, as you have so generously laid it all out for us to utilize your genius brain power here on HP and in cyberspace.

I pray you have the best Thanksgiving ever and you and your family are blessed beyond measure.

Voted Way Up and sharing

Awesome Dude! I didn't make the top 25 but was amazed I hit #55...I didn't even expect that. I have a lot of work to do re-energizing my hubs, and lack of hours is my biggest foe right now, but I keep on working slowly towards that goal.

Thanks for some great and useful information, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friend.

Now...if only I did not have to sleep! Ha! Up, useful and interesting votes and will share.

@mperrottet, thank you for the support and cool comment and I noticed you have been visiting a bunc of my hubs lately as well, I will definitely repay the favor for sure.

I enjoy taking breaks regularly for sure and sometimes for 2 to 3 day HP vacations.

The funy thing is I actually wrote this hub about a week ago, and have loads more written up to unleash as well, so its OK I try to do a great deal of work over long lengths of time, and then time my publishes for the prime moments, but thanks for the cool advice, and see you soon in your hubs.

I read this thoroughly and learned much, Mike. I even checked out the Hubpages Terms of Use pretty thorughly. I watched the first 2 videos you included with fascination and even followed the thinking, but a 2 hr one is too much for this sitting at this hour & after the turkey and all. :-) I plan to return to it, as I need to study your hub more.

You're possibly aware that I'm not operating on the same channel. I'm a poet, as well as writer of prose. I've written all my life and never before shared much of it. I'm 80. I'm not looking to earn my living doing this. I'm enjoying doing what I do, which I do extremely well, though perhaps not commercially. Posthumous fame will be OK with me. heh heh.

BUT I've been intensely aware of & interested in all about the internet and digitalization ever since I subscribed in 1996 and got a "Q" book to try to figure out what I'd gotten myself into! I built a big personal webpage from scratch with zip preknowledge, starting in 1997, and keep maintained, though less so since I joined HP.

I wasn't' looking for lots of exposure, just freedom to express in this media.

But these developments you describe are fascinating and I find it extremely challenging, just fathoming the language of it, the radial directions -- and the need for, and reasons for the directions -- in which the internet is going. It would be chaotic, were it not for bright minds like those at Google sorting out the pieces that make it a more workable puzzle and like yours working to put it into actual practice. I'm so proud of you. Whoo hoo!!

Thanks for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm. I am sure I'm going to keep following your progress!

Thanks @Millionaire Tips, we both started around the same time on hubpages and so you and I know how its been when it comes to all the changes we've been experiencing here, and even if you took a vacation and all, for the most part its been a true battle to maintain our keep here for sure.

Going harder is going smarter! Oh I learned a great deal from reading many of you encouraging and helpful articles as well, your writing ability is superb. Happy belated Turkey day to you too (:

Yes indeed there isn't enough time in a day to do it all right, well scheduling things might help a bit as I had to readjust my priorities a great deal for the most part, and all throughout this Panda recovery process.

I will soon be moving all of my poetry from hubpages to help improve my stats even further, which I published 50+ poems, that all are non performers here and have only hurt my overall sub domains standings pretty much.


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@Blond Logic, I like your screen name it is very unique indeed.

Yeah its tough when a writer joins such a network, and has no idea what the online users want, has no clue how to curate content or imagery, video ect...

Also if you were like me, decide to write a great deal to support the HP community, and or try to mix things up a bit by writing many poems as well, or technical tutorial articles that aren't really favored mostly on the web as a whole by web surfers, it does get quite tough to attract views.

Well that was my experience at least fighting the stats battle and all, plus the fact that I struggle with poor grammar issues from time to time, and I hate having to use these freaking keyboards all the time, I would much rather prefer to use a pen and paper to work on my writings but oh well its the 21 century digital era right!

@Nellieanna, thank you so much for taking the time to provide such a wonderful comment and review of my hub here. I tried my best to make it useful for others in many differing besides show the proof as to how tough it was for me to achieve such a thing as being part of the top 100 hubbers here in terms of web traffic stats.

It has been a truly amazing experience overall to meet so many like minds, and so many experts worldwide here on hubpages, and to have made so many good friends digitally, and I know its just getting started as well.

So I again thank you, but this time from the bottom of my heart for choosing to become friends with me a while back, and for making effective communications in many of my hub articles which we had some really good conversations fourth and back.

This is why I truly believe hubpages is the best network period on the Internet today, because there is nowhere else that I have made such true connections with others, and I love it!

First of all congrats on being 25th on the list. That is VERY impressive. I appreciate you showing us the stats and everything else, while explaining it to us. If you have about 330 hubs and almost 100 of them are written for hubbers, do you think these specialized hubs help or hurt your overall statistics? By that I mean, would you have a higher average number of hits per hub if you did were to spend your time writing evergreen topics? Or do you think that because of your followers that it helps with the overall numbers?


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@mpropp, thanks for reading up on my hub here and for stating your question referring to my writing hubs for the HP community. I do believe that as for the HP network itself anything you write towards the community or for the community is evergreen in nature because it pertains to the internal network and navigating of hub articles will always occur from within hubpages by fellow hubbers.

However, the stats on such articles are very low but do come in all year round, just as any other evergreen topic, unless I were to become known here and sought after as an expert sometime in the future, which is possible but highly unlikely because there are thousands of authors on hubpages who does the very same thing I'm doing, which is helping others pretty much.

In terms of those articles helping me maintain views during the low web traffic battles, yes many of them have helped me because a great deal of them are designed to help hubbers with content issues, with learning how to understand things on hubpages that aren't so visible, and in keeping with the good spirits of the HP community overall.

I never planned to write this many to start out with, but I keep finding more an more things that were highly useful, and worked well for me, and I figured it needed to be shared with others who have yet to find such relevant info.

In terms of benefiting me, well I have earned a true following writing things that are truly useful to others, and many folks care to read my hubs due to the fact that there is real value in them rather then just an article that's written for web traffic purposes alone. None of these articles have hit the 1,000 views mark, nope writing for the HP community is a huge sacrifice, and it makes it extra hard for me to rank up onto the search engines since people aren't really looking for such content worldwide pretty much. So I understand why you asked such a question.

I do it out of pure love for the hubpages community, for the fact that people have helped me so selflessly here, I do it for my friends who may need the help here, and for myself to learn to master my craft of how to articles.

Hi @carol7777, glad to see you made it here, yes indeed its been a tough struggle all the way up to the top of hubpages, but its all a stats thing which isn't any true indicator of overall HP success, but is a sign to me to know the potential is there for longevity, and future success for sure.

I'm so glad that you feel motivated by my progress as well as the assistance I did my best to provide for you, and I can't wait to see more of your hubs soon as well, and to get into reading many of them.

I been working extremely hard on my recent hub series here, but once things slow down and all, I will definitely be paying everyones hubs a visit that has been supporting all of my efforts as well, and I hope to be meeting newer hubbers soon, who may also need help getting things roling.

Thanks for the comment and for supporting me too, you have always been such a sweet heart, and cool friend to me, chat with you soon.

I got little to nothing out of this hub.

Perhaps, I might be so bold as to suggest a simple procedure or template to be used as a checklist.

Constructive Criticism


CloudExplorer profile image

CloudExplorer 4 years ago from New York City Author

@ib, sorry that you feel that way about my article here. This is how I wanted to write the hub and many other folks have indeed found it very useful to them, and no one until you arrived had any issues whatsoever $6 with it. (So your opinion is well taken by me, but maybe not warranted or relevant in the full scheme of things)

So if you feel otherwise then go right ahead and criticize all you like, everything in this world isn't set out to please everyone, or to suit their needs or what have you, and that's why we all have many options to go elsewhere.

One thing I do know is that my experiences here can never ever be taken away, and this hub was one I published based on pure experience of hard earned achievement, and if you cannot benefit from the words of wisdom I delivered here, then so be it.

You got me wondering, maybe you already know of better ways to make it all happen here, and I feel for your experience here if it has somewhat dishearted you in some way, but please try not to be so harsh on a fellow hubber who's doing their god honest best that they can with it all.

Thanks but no thanks!

Oh and thank you as well for commenting so critically, it has opened up my eyes to see whom you are, and that of your HP activities as well.

Good luck in whatever you do on HP or elsewhere, because true success is yet a publish away for sure, and only if you learn the right things to do and what not to do. Learning from pure experience of how it all works, is the only way sometimes.

I like this Hub, your willingness to share your methods of work on Hubpages is exciting. You give examples and we can all profit from your informative HUB. My thought is that when others want to come across as negative towards your comments and explanatory remarks, that the comments should be deleted immediately.This will allow those who want to excell and that are adept at writing, to do so without being exposed to the negativity and unprofessional tone which their comments reflect toward this excellent work. I agree Cloud Explorer with your retort to the really precociousness of the comments. Keep putting out these high quality Hubs, Many of us do appreciate your time and effort put forth to help other Hubbers to improve and earn on Hubpages. Take care my friend. Don't let em get you down, they are only castles burning, find some Hubbers who are producing and you will come around.

Thanks you @Diane for your kind words of positive feedback , it isn't easy to always know of what we should or shouldn't be doing on HP.

I did my best to point out all that I had to do to achieve the top spot, while at the same time I had no clue if any of it was all working, but once Alocsin wrote that article telling us all, thanks to him I discovered such a truth, and hence the writing of this hub was imperative.

@Diane Woodson, yes indeed deleting hubs isn't a wise decision. I worked to hard on each and every one of them to throw away my potential Hubbing success, and even if they're poetry.

I was thinking I shouldn't write anymore poems here a while back, because all of mine are idled, and it takes a toll on my HP subdomain's success, but I will see over time for sure what I shall do with them in the near future. Maybe I'll just keep them to show diversity across the board.

I plan on writing 1,000's of high quality hubs that are useful as I research and learn more about this world we live in. I hope the poems shall serve as an indicator to folks of the actual diversity any hubber may have, and even if they aren't designed to gain web traffic not one bit.

I am willing to fight my way up to the "Top Spot" on HP no matter what with style, charisma, and with professionalism as well.

As for those creative writings of mine which also get the lowest stats, well they aren't going anywhere either, because I am no quitter, and here for the long haul.

So if people choose to delete hubs, LOL its not advised by me unless it was a direct hub violation or absolutely necessary.

Thanks for bringing that factor out about a certain aspect of my hub here Diane, not everyone will read that deep into it all, you know.

Positive indicators are here, Go with it Cloud, You have one person here in Indiana pulling for you!! I realize many do not care if the friends out there excell, in any profession there are always there that are jealous of the abilities of others. There are those maybe novice, in a mode in their mind: that it's a blasé thing to write here. I value it, I value High Quality and know you and many of us do as well. I am anxious to read the 1000s and I too am working just going at the slower pace because of a couple factors that are holding my time back, However as per Poetry, I think we all should realize and relegate poetry to the place where it belongs as poetry in substance is usually more ethereal in overall quality than prose. Poetry is not nearly as easily edited in my experience than Prose......... which I love your point with concern to the deleting of it.

Extremely useful hub! I am definitely going to have to take a look at my older hubs and give them a makeover. It's amazing how much we learn the more we write hubs. Thanks and voted up!

Yes indeed @Diane, everyone functions on differing modes of operandi, and so yup all of our knowledge's, and paces of motivation to publish or opportunities to do so due to abundance of time, or the lack there of definitely places a huge factor into things in dealing with writing on HP and anywhere for that matter.

Oh and I love poetry, I just it could be read more online, or at least located more frequently to give it all a chance today, that's all.

Thanks again for the support of all of my efforts, and for sharing with me.

@Glimmer Twin Fan, I'm so happy that you liked this hub of mine. It was tough to write and I pored a great deal of all of my hubbing experiences into it as well.

Its good to know when people can truly appreciate something you worked hard on, and all.

Thanks you for giving my hub here a chance, and for sharing with me as well.
