Increasing Traffic and Earning Money With Google AdSense

Money is money from Google, but you have to keep at it to make money, you need links and visits, and more links and visits.
Money is money from Google, but you have to keep at it to make money, you need links and visits, and more links and visits.

Increase Traffic and Make Money

The idea behind making money online is that people will use the search engines and then will click on an ad and this will make you money. However, they do forget that increasing traffic from as many sources as you can means that you will need to think about what you are publishing online. (yes we all think we have fine hub... but let's be serious about that part!) you have?

What? I can hear it now, After having read some of my hubs on quality and quantity you might think I am asking you to write more hubs faster, no I am not I am asking you to think about your business on hubpages. Publishing a hub is one thing, going back and improving your writing is another thing-- and most people don't like doing this part of the job.

Yes, for those who don't believe that you have to do work on hubpages to get money from Google AdSense or other affiliate programs, you are not thinking online business. You want something too quickly-- that is make money fast, and it does not work that way. This is a business and you are in a business to be a professional no matter what you write. We all want to make money and visits (or traffic) is the only way to make money. That and not giving up after 5 months.

It takes for the most part about 4-8 months to make a payout from Google AdSense using hubpages, but there is more to it, the power of linking your hub both with your other hubs and to the bigger Internet community. If you want money you need visits or traffic.

Getting Traffic Equals Getting Rich?

But I Get Traffic, and I should get paid! When I do get a click from Google AdSense there is very little to speak of!: the fact of the matter is that some clicks are worth more clicks and some well, it really depends upon what sort of traffic you are getting, and most importantly, how much keyword research and optimization your are doing-- this is where it takes a lot of time and energy if you plan to build your passive income, there is no short cuts to this plan.

Luck also is putting your self one step forward each day and keep on working in creating links and everything else. See, Google itself, from what I have read does like older more established websites and blogs which also have a lot of links. This can take a while, but you need to do the work. It is a long process, but as with anything worth while, it takes time to get traffic and money.

The idea to making money with Google AdSense is simple: Create Great content, find good keywords and then begin by building links to make some magic-- that magic is what most call page rank, a term which simply means that Google finds you hub, and you have enough credibility with that hub that it is found in the first page or better with many keyword combinations. (This means on one word keywords and long tail keywords -- multi-word keywords)

Of course this is Google at its most basic, and we all need a foundation to work with. Start with the basics and then keep learning.

Increase Your Traffic

Increasing Traffic and SEO? A Good Thing?

So what about visits? What about SEO, and page rank and everything else?: You are right these things are important, but the key thing to remember is if no one, and I mean if no one finds your writing (content) useful, at some point, fairly quickly, there will be no traffic. Then it does not matter what you dream of-- it will not happen. This is why there is a huge push that you publish content that is useful that you work hard at improving your writing to make that traffic stay and read more of your work.

SEO is search engine optimization, and to me that not only means links but also what you give to the traffic that comes to your site, you want them to go away with the basics-- or at least find why you published useful for their needs. There should be something for each reader. Again it can also be more advanced, and you should have links out there to experts as well as your own things. It increases your professionalism.

That is why hubpages does what it does, in other words allows us to vote up and down content. So, if your content is not good there is more of a chance that people will not find it useful or helpful, and will not come back to look at your other work. Also allowing comments is a valuable part, but telling people what they should and should not comment is a discourtesy to you and to others. I am of the mindset that if you say on a hub that you should not comment if you do not have anything nice to say, then this hub should not be published, you need to have a thick skin, we all know this... or at least I do. ( I have read many hubs which begin a very controversial subject and then says no comments which are against my view or seem to me to be belittling... that is asking for trouble)

Content is a must, again hubpages is not a blog nor is it a site where you post one hub and then let it be. It is an ends to a means, which is traffic and content.

a writing quote
a writing quote

Content, I got that, not a problem... but my problem is traffic: Often traffic comes in wave or comes and goes, Marisa Wright, a resident guru on hubpages said it best in her hubs, check out where you are getting your traffic and focus on these ( Sorry Marisa I can't recall which of your great hubs it was in... please advise!)

Content is a must, but when you have traffic then is the time to encourage it, and to keep it by adding links carefully and slowly, and do this each day. I was one who used to do this at a rather fast pace, but I have found that traffic which comes from the search engines needs more of a reason to stay when they have choice.

The other thing which is important is the idea that you will always have a few hubs which don't do all that well and a few hubs which do. Which links are you going to focus on?

For me, I would add some external links to the hubs which are getting great traffic over a long period of time, and then interlink inside that hub with other hubs which could use some help. In other words I find what works well, in terms of which older hubs are getting traffic and use the power of traffic to my advantage.

Now this will create traffic between your hubs, but there are a few other things which help. So I'll explain these now. SEO and links.

My traffic is beginning to come to my hubs and other sites, but nothing, nothing is making me money!!: Well, go online into Google, or Yahoo (I do both) and type in some of your keywords. See where it gets you, most of the time some of your hubs will be found on page six or seven. This is not so good, as most hubs which make money for you need to be at the very least on the first two pages of ANY search engine. Now, some will argue to focus only on Google, but the other search engines have value as well.

So the question you need to ask is where are my links coming from? What about how I have my site set up? What about the Search Engines? These are the basic questions you need to ask yourself.

If for example I write a hub and then put links to all the social networking sites and then begin to write another hub adding a link to the older hub will that help me? Somewhat, but if you wan tot make money it probably won't. You have simply done the most basic thing you can do which is building a link, but it needs to go beyond that.

What about your keywords? See, this is something similar to links and to SEO in my mind since most people simply put a bunch of words they THINK will help them, and then add it to their hubs. Often this is the worst things you could do for your hub. See, Google and the other search engines are smart, they can figure things out.

What they are looking for is good content and good keywords. Traffic from the search engines is written about a lot since if you want to make money you need the traffic to come from the search engines. Look at your competition, if a keyword has the top ten sites as wikipedia, well you are probably not going to out link or out optimize this site.

Aim well, and use Keyword searches to your advantage. I sue Google AdWords as a starting point in finding out a few extra keywords that help with my traffic or will help improve my content. This helps make my hubs stronger. when a hub is stronger, (content) and you have good links, traffic will come and so will the money. Think like a business.

What I want is....

  • To Have More Visits
  • To Have more Comments
  • To Have more people link to my Hub
  • To Make More Money
  • To Do All of the Above
See results without voting

The Last Word--- most people do not like to hear that links and content and traffic and SEO and all these things relate but they do, you need to keep writing and keep learning. This is a business, and you need to have a rather thick skin and understand that some will love your hub and some will not. Again this is a business. You might or might not be right but....

Frankly, your content will prove if you are correct or not, you will get traffic and you must at all times be the most professional person you can be. You need to care about comments and you need to write well. You also need to learn. Even I am still learning, and it is thanks to so many hub writers that I can say I will always be learning.

Keep writing, keep aiming to make money, keep linking, and keep learning, and with traffic will come what you want money.

To your success.

maruthirp-- often the same hub which makes me a $3 click, will also make me a one penny click, so it is a matter of luck and what you content is for example "make money" will be hard to, well, make money simply because the market is saturated... so it depends, I say write what you know and write it well.

Kudos on an accurate hub -- emphasizing the point of perseverance and diligence in reaching goals, whether they are social, financial or other. I am a novice blogger, so I am just beginning to learn -- and expect to continue to ascertain knowledge daily. As a website designer, what you write about SEO, links, etc., beign related is ON TARGET, and I expect the principle to hold true to successful hubbing. I look fwd to reading more of your "hubs". Warm regards~

We tend to think about clicks on Google as being like lottery scratch card. You never know whether or not you will get anything, or if you do get something, how much it will be.

On our own website we spend about equal time on writing content and promoting the site. We don't manage the same balance for HubPages, and notice the difference in terms of views and also money.

Thanks for another excellent hub.

Fake Mulberry Handbags-- Google can take about a week or more, especially if you don't use one of their main blogs ( such as blogger) or you don't have great content. Google will double check all links to see if they follow your TOS... so bigger links means more checking.

Bladexs - that is 0.1 cents more than I have. Adsense is tough to make much money with unless you have hundreds of websites. That is how the big boys do it. Keep at though, some day you may have a few hundred and will see a trickle turn into a stream.

Nice insights you have here. Of course, this works two ways, one is that you can definitely advertise your site and gain sales and second is that you will earn an extra income. But in making those articles or blogs, we might as well follow certain procedures which google might take into account like spamming or stuffing. Avoiding this will make one a legitimate blogger which deals with informative information for readers in the web.

Karen-- for me e-zine does have value only because after getting about 60 some odd articles, ( the more articles the better in this case) with several hubs with the links on the bottom, (about the author) I have seen some traffic through there. Of course my e-zine are based upon the hub itself, so I add based upon this hub (with both title and link-- that seems to be the best way) so I have seen traffic coming from there, and it is valuable.

Very straight forward and to the point, frankly when I first started, money wasn't on my mind at all but now that I found something that I enjoy doing, I might as well get paid 4 it;-) So I will keep ur tips in mind =) Rated up

samboiam-- yes it does take about that long to understand these things, and then another 5 months to fix up everything you did in the last 4 months that should be fixed! Keep on going and you will see success.

Polly C- if you link together several hubs on the same topic, then yes, from what I understand it does look better to the search engines, at least from ym vantage point it helps the search engines "see" your hubs more... of course that does take a bit of time, and energy but it is worth it.

Mike-- think of it as writing a book, you write it and then you (gulp!) edit it, and then re-write it and make it better then work on the format and esign, everything, but it all work together, and yes some part we might not enjoy but everything works together.

I learn a lot from you Rebecca. I agree 100% that writing for money is a business and should be handled as a business in every way. Thanks for another very useful hub.

Excellent advice. Rated up and bookmarked. Quick question Rebecca, as I know you often stress the importance of building links. do you submit pieces to Ezinearticles and similar sites to build links to your hubs and blogs? I have been avoiding it for a long time and just started to, with no results as yet (yes, I know, it takes time!). Just wondered what your opinion on these sites is as I value it (your opinion, that is)!

rated up, useful & bookmarked (as all your work) thanks so much Rebecca, you are one great mentor. When I'm notified that I have a hub from you, I drop everything and read it, completely. You are great writer, true friend & guide...

Great hub - I like the way you liken Hubpages and earning with Adsense to a business, because having that kind of mindset can make all the difference between success and failure. Gave you the thumbs up for this!

Thank you for another helpful hub. I have been on HP for almost four months and I am just now beginning to understand some of what you are talking about. I will bookmark this for future reference. Voted it up.

Hi Rebecca, thank you for another great hub - you outline the basics and then go a little bit further. You are definitely the person who has taught me the most about links and keywords etc. as this is what I, as I am sure is the case with many people, understand the least.

I love the fact that you write so many hubs on these subjects - every time I see another hub from you it drums it into me what I should be doing to improve my hubs! No chance of forgetting about it with your hubs to give me a shove!

Just had one question - if you have several of your own hubs linked together, does this make it stronger for the search engines to find?

Anyway, thanks again :)

Great hub and I must agree, seo is no easy task. If getting ranked for competitive keywords was a breeze, everybody would be making fat stacks of cash. However, hard work does pay off.

Thanks for sharing,

Nick

You have done it once more! What are you waiting for that e-book, honey? It is so precise and to the point...I wonder how many people have improved their status and money making skills with your fantastic hubs. This has been Stumbled, Bookmarked and rated up and useful!

Warmest hugs, zillion kisses, lots of love and light and infinite heavenly blessings,

You make a great point here by telling us it is all connected--the content, the links, the keywords, SEO, the clicks--and we can't ignore any of it. It is indeed a job and some parts we will enjoy more than others. Just because we don't enjoy it doesn't mean we can ignore it......

Thanks for another reality shot about online writing. You are on the money again, as usual.

Mike
