How to get started earning money in HubPages

Introduction to making money

Earning money on HubPages is not going to come easily, you are going to have to work for it. You are going to have to put some time into it as well, possibly several hours per day in the beginning. Anything worthwhile takes time and effort, you will find that perseverance pays off. You wouldn’t expect to go to a job and do nothing while being paid a wage would you? Look at HubPages as being a new job. What do you do at a new job?

What kind of employee are you?

Are you a full timer? Did you want to start your job as a full time employee? Remember in the working world most full time jobs are 40 hours per week. The benefit of writing at HubPages is you get to pick and choose the hours you work, and break them up as you find necessary. So you can spread that 40 hours over a period of 7 days if you wish. Spending about 5 ½ hours per day on writing.

Are you a part-timer? You just want to spend a little time each day writing, then do so. Or maybe just a few hours per week is what you have time for. For some, writing is considered part time, because of the other jobs they have. This is fine, write when you have time.

Are you a call-in employee? For instance, at a ‘regular’ job if someone were to call in sick, are you the one they call? If that’s the case then you will only work when you want to. You will write when the mood strikes. That is fine too.

Training

Be consistent, if you get an idea write something about it. If you are driving, try to stop and write your idea down. Or if you have a recordable cell phone, use that to record your idea. Ideas for writing come at the oddest of times. Not necessarily when you are sitting in front of your computer screen. Live your life, get ideas.

You may have to research your idea for a Hub, that is great the more good - useful information you can put into a Hub the better off you will be. Make it as accurate as possible; you don’t want to give misinformation. People will come to your pages and read them, you want to be as truthful as possible. If your idea is fantastic you will have repeat viewers and people who want to ‘share’ your Hub with others.

The first thing at any new job training, with HubPages your training consists of writing. You write a few Hubs, make them as good as you can. Before publishing, look over them, get someone to proofread them for typos and errors if at all possible. You have something to say and you want the whole world to know what it is so you write it. That is your first step.


Meet your co-workers (Hubbers)

Next you want to get to know your co-workers, in HubPages you will want to meet other writers (co-workers) go into the answer page, look it over. See if there are questions you can answer, this is beneficial for you. You will be seen as a new ‘Hubber’ and older hubbers will want to welcome you. Next visit the forums, read what is written comment if you wish. Read the profiles of other Hubbers, read the Hubs, make comments. Most of them will either comment back on their own page or come to visit yours. In turn they will comment on your work, possibly giving you good feedback. ‘Follow’ a few people, a few people will ‘follow’ you. This way you are making new friends, you can easily see their work and they can see yours. Continue to meet new Hubbers, you never know when someone will help you with that burning question you have had.


Learning

Your next step is to learn. In a regular job you must begin to learn; otherwise your job will be standing there at the fry bin forever. (Just an example folks don’t get mad at me) There is a ton of information to be found right here on HubPages. All you have to do is take the time to find it. Read Hubs, the information is there, just like you are doing right now.

It is important that you learn everything you can otherwise you will be like a fish out of water, just flopping around. Ask questions, you will get your answers from more experienced Hubbers.


Making money

Now on to the good part - earning money. Unlike a regular job you will not get a paycheck at the end of your first week. Why? Well first because you may not have many readers. Are you ‘sharing’ your work? You need to share with as many as possible, face book, myspace and twitter have been built in to HubPages with the share button. You can even email your Hubs to friends, family and people you know. Do this by sending them a link to your page. That way when they click on it, you will get a page view.

Have you signed up for a Google AdSense account? You should have a few hubs for Google to approve you for this, write for a week or so, giving yourself several good Hubs, then apply for this account. This is one of the ways you get paid, It will probably be the biggest way you get paid in the long run. You will find this in your affiliate settings button under ‘my account’. There is also Amazon, E-bay, Kontera and Google Analytics. It will take several days for Amazon to approve you so apply and wait. Then when you get your account you should use some of their products in your Hubs. Relate the products to what is in the content of your Hub. This will pay you a percentage if anything is sold.

The other affiliates, these can wait for you to become more used to writing Hubs and getting traffic. You will be continuing to learn as you go, you cannot learn everything you need to know about HubPages in one Hub.

Google wants you to have page views, you will build trust with them. Why do you want this? Google is the largest search engine out there, and HubPages is affiliated with them. The more page views you have, the more Google says ‘Hey, this is a good writer’. It’s kind of like a ball rolling downhill, you will pick up more speed as you go. ‘Google’ is the hill, your Hub is the ‘ball’ and speed are your ‘views’. If you already have a Google AdSense account you are one step ahead of the game, Google knows who you are and may already trust you. All you will have to do is link your HubPages account to your Google AdSense account, the instructions for that are within your account.

With this you will be building residual income. Say in the future you have made a lot of good Hubs and you are making money, it’s rolling in really good and you are happy. You break both arms and can’t type. In a ‘regular’ job you of course wouldn’t be able to work, but with HubPages, you will still receive income. That is residual income, getting paid for what you have already done, and continuing to receive pay for it.


Benefits for writing on HubPages

The benefits of writing on HubPages for a new person is just this. You learned how to write in school and are able to string some words together that make perfect sense. You have good ideas and want to put them to use. At first with any job you will find that your work isn’t perfect. Most companies allow you a ‘do over’, they don’t expect anyone new to get it perfect the first time. HubPages is the same, they allow you to go in and edit your work to make it better. To get your feet wet with writing, you are allowed to write about anything you wish. That’s kind of like getting a factory job and being allowed to run any machine you want to, how great is that?

HubPages is NOT a get rich quick scheme of any sort. You will have to put some thought into your work, and write good content. Your writing should be able to be understood by most people, use good grammar. Remember you are writing an article, not texting to your friends. If it helps, think of it as a magazine article that you would like to read. Everything must be written in English. Go over your work, give your sentences structure. Give your self some paragraphs, not many like to read a Hub that is one big long paragraph; the eyes like a break. Use the tools that you find on your page when writing a Hub, such as capsules and links. By using capsules you are making what I like to call ‘chapters’, as if you were reading a book. Linking to others’ Hubs help them as well as you.

Just keep writing

Above all, keep writing. When you are finished with your first Hub, start planning for your next one. Practice makes perfect. If you don’t get the first one right, go back and edit it. You might get that one article that makes you a lot of money, but if you don't keep writing you will never know about it. Make changes, people will notice you. Learn all you can about the terms you find in HubPages such as backlinks, SEO, keywords etc.

The money will come in time, it’s not something you will find overnight. Just keep writing, continue to improve your writing skills and read the Hubs of others. There are Hubbers writing Hubs about writing. Go meet them, read what they have to say.


Good Luck! And keep writing!

Sweetsusieg: As a regular hubber, I have done all of this already, but I have not as yet earned even 1 cent. Yes I am signed up with ad-sense as well as all the other affilliates, I have my Hubs on 4 of the other sites like facebook, blogspot too, but after 7 months, of writing, I've received nothing. my accounts don't even show any activity. I do realize that one has to generate over $100.00 before getting a payout, but if nothing is deposited, into ones account it is difficult to get there.

Hopefully my reward, since I am evangelizing with my hubs will come from the Lord when I finally return home to heaven, cuz I'm not realizing it here.

Dave.

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

Brother Dave - As a friend reminded me, "You can lead a Horse to water, but you can't make him drink". Your Hubs are out there for people to see.

I have discovered that you need to write about what people want to read. As it has been through all of time. Maybe you could open another HubPages and make it an ad account? Try stepping out of your comfort zone, and write about other areas of life, you can still keep a Christian outlook with that.

Good Luck and thank you for reading and commenting!

Great advice! I like how you relate it to different "styles" of working. I've been slacking off, but I really want to take this freelance writing thing as far as I can, and HubPages is a fantastic launching pad, in my opinion.

Great hub! Rated up!

Yes it is!! How great is it that someone has put a site up for someone to let us get our feet wet in the writing world, and make a little money in the process!!

A few years ago I wrote a book (well a couple over the years) and went on to try to find out how to get it published. Never did find an agent. WOW, the difficulties in that alone! It's getting dusty!! LOL

I did manage to find out how to copy write my work cheaply, via the Internet... mail it to yourself! hehehe nice trick isn't it?

Good information. I believe this hub would be read many people. Personally, I have invest my time around 17 months to get income. And I am waiting my third check from writing in hubpages. You are right, my friend. This is not get rich quick scheme. You have to invest your idea, time, even hard work to get money. But doing this with enjoy. Writing anything we love. But try to give useful information for others, that's become good credit for us. Until now, I still learn and learn. There's no perfect in the world. At least we still try and never give up. Very inspiring hub. Vote Up.

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

idreesfarooq - Thanks, as I go I will try to write about my progress. Today should mark my 50th Hub. (well I hope it does,if my grand daughter lets me write)

Chris - ABSOLUTELY!!! Doll, write those short stories and poetry, write about anything you wish (follow TOS of course). Now I'm not saying it will make you money, because I don't know what people want to read about. BUT it will keep your brain exercising and that is the key. Keep writing, you will get more and more ideas as you go. Keep a pen and paper handy for scribbling ideas.

Good Luck and Just keep writing!!

Great stuff as usual Susie. I'm on 2 months now and I've earned just under £4... I think that's fair considering I ususally prattle on about stuff that interests me instead of good SEO'd content that people want. I guess the knack is finding out what people want to read about and writing it. Not always as easy as it sounds. Glad you're powering forward though, you have a very approachable reading style and I think that helps convey the information to the reader which will ultimately make it popular. Well done.


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

Thanks Tom! How nice of you to say that! There are only a couple things that I have written about that people are drawn to, change that 'a few' I have about 3 or 4 Hubs that get good traffic.

I try to write like I speak. I have written 'techie' and my kids don't like to read it, they said I used to big of words and it makes it hard to understand. So I went with what they wanted, easy reading.

I have to agree writer83 - It gives you residual income, which in the long run is much better than the quick buck. The quick buck is great for a few minutes, but when it's gone, it's gone. This will continue to make money for years to come.

Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

kosanya - AdSense is an entity unto itself, the page impressions differ from the actual page visitors. It's the page clicks that you want rather than page impressions. You have to make sure that your HubPages is linked to your Google AdSense account. To get help with this go to the Help section in the upper right hand corner of your home page.

Seeker7 - Thanks! I tried to make it in plain English so that it was easily understandable. I hate looking for information only to find that I need a dictionary to comprehend what I am reading.. LOL Have a Great Day!! Good Luck with your writing!

this is great well done, and it break the idea of hubpages down well. The hours are the hours, and it does take time to build, which as you said, is not a get rich quick scheme.

Rebecca E. - Thanks, I tried to make it as simple as it really is to do. Write, get readers get clicks and get paid. It came from one gentleman who had written 7 Hubs and was attempting to demand payment. He made no sense, I thought if he is thinking that, there must be others.

dianeaugust - You are most welcome! I'm glad you found it useful.

When I think of Hubpages, I think of it is as passive income. Something that will earn you money in the long run. All you need to do is create informative hubs that people are interested in and eventually you'll make money in your sleep.

Nice hub. From your experience, how many hub you had and how long you had been writing when you submitted your application for Google Adsense? From web search, understand one needs to have about 30 articles, or has been writing for at least 6 months before one can be granted approval.


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

I think I had about 10 Hubs before applying for Google AdSense, and only was with Hubpages about a week or so. I just kept writing while waiting for acceptance.

Good Luck with your writing!!

Sophia Angelique - I'm still learning LOTS about HubPages myself, I'm sure I will continue to learn as I go. Good Luck!!

Mokibobolink - Good Luck with the process! It is very rewarding that is for sure! I log in and see all these comments and sit here in amazement that this Hub is doing so well... As far as deciding what to write about, I just open my word processor with 'an idea' of something, it usually turns out quite different than I'd planned and that is not always a bad thing. The key is to just keep writing!

svrcytong - Welcome to HubPages and best of luck to you!!

Hello, I was truly impressed with your hub. I was wondering would writing poems constitute a hub or a blog?

Kathy


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

Shotfingers3 - Thanks!! I wanted to format the Hub in such a way that most could relate to it.

kathy keach - Thanks! Well a Hub is a name that someone came up with, we have many poets here on HubPages. We also have bloggers, some write just for the fun of it with no thought of passive/residual income. It's all up to the individual writer here on HubPages what they want to do with the space that is provided for them.

If you like writing poetry, I say 'Go For It'!!

tim-tim - I gave your Hubs a quick look. Are you signed up for Google AdSense? You do that thru HubPages. Go to you account, then look at the affiliate settings. Google is the first one, you have to remember it's Google that pays you, not HubPages. Unless of course you enter one of the many contests that HubPages has to offer!! Those are great fun!

The idea of earning by hubpages is not very bad. But i have few questions-

1.How many hubs you need to have before applying to adsense.

2 What is the minimum readership or views for the hubs published.

3. What is your experience about google advt. Does it really pay and help to earn?

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

@ mannychecks - Thanks!

@ Albert - Thanks

@ maidmarion9 -Glad you enjoyed

@ kuttingxedge - I think it's only fair if someone takes the time to comment that I respond in kind. Sometimes it's fun to see what other people have to say regarding my writing as well. We as writers seem to seek approval and this is by far the BEST place that I have found that lets me express myself. I'm glad that you were able to find something in here that was helpful.

@ pradip gharpure -

1. I applied before my 10th and kept writing until I got my answer.

2. No clue - everyday people read and as google finds you worthy, they send people your way.

3. So far Google hasn't let me down.

@ pennyofheaven - Glad you found this helpful

@ dinesh8252 - Thanks!

@ kpcwriting - That was prompted by a writer who was angry that he wasn't making TONS of money after only writing 7 Hubs, he didn't seem to understand the concept of HubPages. Thanks for stopping by!

Vcize profile image

Vcize 6 years ago from United States

If you aren't signed up for certain affiliate accounts, will hubpages still use those automatically?

For instance, if I have an adsense account and an amazon associates account set up, will hubpages be smart enough to just use amazon and adsense ads on my hub or will it still put ebay affiliate links and the like up there?


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

@ DawnM - Yep, it takes a bit, but you just keep at it!! You certainly have some great topics!!

@ Geld lenen - Average isn't too bad when you think of it as being passive/residual income.

@ Matthew Rogerson - Glad you liked it!

@ jdavis88 - Anytime I can help I'm glad to!

@ fucsia - It will come in time!!

Thank you all for stopping by and commenting!


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

Vcize - No you must connect the two, HubPages will not do that for you. If you already have a Google account set up all you need to get is a code number and put it in your settings/account here on HubPages. Go to the help section and you can find guidance there.

The ads are automatically placed on your Hub in regards to the words in your title/url and some keywords. I do not have an ebay affiliate, so I cannot answer that one. Amazon, you can place certain things to 'sell', for instance on my coffee pot Hub, I have various different coffee pots to select from using Amazon.

You might as well sign up for Google Adsense, because the ads will appear even if you're not.

Hope this helps!

mistyhorizon2003 6 years ago from Guernsey (Channel Islands)

Hi Sweetsusieg, so heart warming to see you are taking time to offer advice to others and also reply to every single comment, (no mean feat when you get this many). To add my input (for what it is worth), there is no reason why someone in London can't write for hubpages (adsense included), as it is in the UK and perfectly acceptable, (this should answer an earlier comment/question you received here).

Secondly I would like to add that I was on hubpages 18 months before I received my first payout, but now I receive payouts pretty much monthly, each of which is usually just over the payout threshold.

It is also worth reassuring new hubbers that certain hubbers do earn a good income from this, e.g. Misha, who freely admits he earns well into three figure sums each month with only about 20+ hubs.

Hope this helps a few more newbies, and keep up the good work, you are a star :)

Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

Mistyhorizon - Thank you so much for stopping by and helping out!! It surely will help the new Hubbers see a 'seasoned' Hubber that has such good things to say! Yes, I have heard that Misha does make a fairly decent income and thought he only had about 20 Hubs. I thought for sure the UK was accepted by Google, but since I don't live there I couldn't be positive and didn't want to give false hope.

The comments have been lots of fun, hard to keep up with but fun!

helene.bliss - Just keep writing!! You'll do fine.

naijanvestor - No this particular Hub is not in a forum, I happened to see a single question and felt it was best answered in a Hub. As far as my niche - I don't have any, my interests range far and wide. At the time I'm writing, I write what I feel is important and think the world wants to know. (This is not always the case mind you) I have several articles that I thought were important to the world and don't get many views.

molson5070 - Thanks! Yes, you definitely need patience with the Internet!!

lifewellspoken - Glad that I could help out!

talk.learnwebpage - Thanks!

everything4every1 - I am not sure, have you been denied? It may just take a little more time. How many Hubs do you have? It also depends on where you live as well. If you're outside of the US sometimes it takes Google a bit longer to accept you.

As of yet I have not signed up for Konters, so I cannot answer that at all.

josechukkiri - You are most welcome!! Glad you enjoyed it!

How do you get a hub pages score of 100?


fooduciary profile image

fooduciary 6 years ago from Playas del Coco, Costa Rica

Susie, thanks for the great hub. I've been a member for a few months now but too busy until recently to be super active. Here's my question...I've written 10 hubs so far, and if I do say so myself, I think they're pretty good. (I worked my tail off on them.) I've gotten some page views but not many followers and zero comments. Is there something I can do better to make it more interactive for people when they come to my hub? And, how do I get more people to my hub?!! : )


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

lovetherain - Glad you were able to find something useful in it!

hotheadtech - Thanks!!

Ryan Hall - I have no idea how the Hub metrics (or whatever they are called) works. I'm not sure how it got to 100, but it feels like I got an A in school!! I remember working very hard for an A in my 12th grade English class. Eventually I got a A-, but it still was an A to me!

fooduciary - Have you 'shared' your Hubs? Just about the comment section there is the word 'share'. You can sign up for stumbleupon then post them there. A blog site can be shared, facebook, myspace. E-mail the link to friends and family. It takes a bit of time for google to pick up Hubs (I'd give it at least 10 days per Hub).

To make your Hubs interactive you can ask questions of your visitors. Make sure you have plenty of tags (just make sure the words that you tag are in the Hub).

Hope this helps!

SweetMarie83 6 years ago from Ontario, Canada

Great hub! It's always nice to read information from people who have been at it awhile and know what they're talking about. Your advice to just keep writing is the key - I've seen so many people give it a go, then in a few weeks or months, they're not having much success so they give up, but if they'd just stuck with it, they could have been really successful.

Hi I found your article very interesting being on hub pages for a year now I haven't made anything yet. I have google adsense and amazon so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.. Maybe I don't have enough hubs? I also haven't been on here in awahile but I'm back and going to give it another shot and hope I make a little money but in the meantime I'm having fun doing it.


Pulsating Tinnus 6 years ago

Nice article ma'am. I reached a score of 60. I am trying hard to reach 100.


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

SweetMarie83 - This is true, they get frustrated very quickly! It took me about 3 weeks of working overtime (16 - 18 hours per day) to learn as much as i have. That along with writing 1-2 Hubs per day. One day I was on fire and wrote 4. This was 7 days per week for me. I became the 'workaholic' in writing. It was several weeks before a seen a few pennies of earnings. Once that happened I liked it and became encouraged with each new day, The first time I 'Googled' one of my Hubs and it was on the first page I was excited!!

Instead of staring at my computer in frustration I'd read others Hubs to see what I could do differently. There are TONS of 'how to's' on here. My one little Hub is not the only answer.

Pokhrel - Thanks!!

onceuponatime66 - Time - It's going to take time to see some earnings. I looked at your Hubs, try to make them a little bit longer a good rule of thumb is between 800 - 1000 words. And just keep writing!! It isn't going to happen overnight.

GlstngRosePetals - More Hubs!! Keep writing! You see I have 119 Hubs... I try to add at least 1 per week now. It's almost Christmas and I have been making gifts so it's difficult to write and crochet. Having fun is very important!! One must like their job for it to show through in their work!

Pulsating Tinnus - Good job! Now just keep writing!! Just so were clear on here. It's not the score that makes the money. It's the visitors on your pages that make you the money. The score is just an added bonus that gives you a good feeling of doing something right.

Think of school - the A was the 'bonus' the knowledge was the 'pay'...

Thanks for stopping by and commenting!!


dynn profile image

dynn 6 years ago from http://www.dynn.net

thanks for the advise...may i know what is the minimum payout for hubpages?


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 6 years ago from Michigan Author

The minimum pay out for Google Adsense is $100.00. It is google that you get your pay from, like Amazon, Kontera and E-bay, each one of those payouts is different. HubPages itself does not pay you. They provide the space for you to write on, in turn they get a smaller percentage of what you get paid.

Hope this helps!

please check it and tell me the reason wats wrong with my hubpages


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

There are various reasons for Google taking there time to accept you. 1. You joined 3 weeks ago and with that you have produced 2 Hubs. To them that seems like you are a 'call in' employee (see above, 2nd paragraph) 2. Make your Hubs interesting, something that people want to read. 3. Make them 600 - 1000 words long. Here is the help link where you might find some answers. http://hubpages.com/faq/ I do not work for Google and only write for HubPages so these are the best answers I can give. Best of Luck to you!

Great hub, very useful advice. I must admit I am a little down hearted about my own hubs. I put quite a bit of effort into them, but as yet I have made nothing at all. People just don't seem to want to read what I write, but after reading this hub and a couple of others like it, I am just going to keep plugging away. Thank you for giving me a little hope and the push I needed to keep going.


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

I clicked on your name, not sure why you are down hearted, you have been read/viewed over 10,000 times with only 57 Hubs.. That's saying something! Is it the comments? As a general rule of thumb, rarely will you get comments from people who aren't 'Hubbers'. They may not realize they can comment, then also there is the 'url optional' thing... The unknown scares people.

Glad I could be of help!

Thanks for your honest reflection on how to make money on hubpages. Perseverance is key. It's meant to be hard in the beginning. It's just not possible for it to be easy. You are competing with thousands of other web pages (if you are lucky). People have to find you hub and read it for you to make money. There are only 10 spots on Google page one and out of those, only 5 really bring in any significant traffic. You have to look at it as a competition. If you write well, put effort into promotion and learn as much as you can, in the end your hard work will pay off!

Good stuff! Unfortunately, so many people are out for the "quick hit" and stop too early when they're not immediately rolling in dough. Yes, your points were spot on - and like anything - there is a buildup necessary. But that's always the way it is with residuals. Patience is the key and you have done a great job of explaining that. But like I said, too many of us (even me AT TIMES) lack the patience necessary to make our efforts pay off. So your hub will hopefully shed some light on this for a lot of people! Thanks again. Enjoyed your article.

I have just joined today and found your article very informative. I knew before I signed up that this is an investment of time and effort. I appreciate your honest encouragement to endure the long haul. I have spent the past six months looking for a job that hasn't manifested. If I'd known about this then, I might be a lot closer to my goal right now. Even so, if it takes six months to get to that point of earning some income, I am willing to take that chance. I just hope for the perseverance to see it through. Sweetsusieg, thank you for sharing your knowledge and experience with us newbies! It is most helpful to orient us in the right direction.

Try to view it as an investment in your future. It definitely will take time, but if your in for the long haul, it will be worth it! When you get the chance take at look at some of my other Hubs, you'll see that I write whatever comes to mind.

I would have to say that is a matter of personal opinion, there is no right or wrong. I write because I occasionally have something to say, I usually try to cover it all in 1 Hub. I usually try to make good content, stay on topic and use at least 1000 words.

A great article that does help folks get the big idea of Hubpages!

There is so much to write about - it just takes time.

I think some of us would just rather be entertained than working hard at writing in our spare time. Others of us don't have much spare time, or have full time work and then family responsibilities that take the rest of it.

It's a dilemma, but that can be overcome by some planning, I think.

Keep on writing, all you writers out there!


Louis Mascolo 5 years ago

I've only done 3 Hubs but I've made $16 from them with Adsense since I started last month. You need to let your friends & relatives know about your Hubs to start. Facebook, etc. Ask them to support you. Let them know you make your money from your links.

It helps to have more than one site. I just started a local online news site, sjmessenger.com and I direct traffic to my hubs from that also. In the last month I made up around $130 from that site, plus a few bucks from Hubpages. I expect that to grow exponentially. You've got to mix and match. Start a blog too.

Thanks Louis for your input! I checked out your sjmessenger site. very cool! Nice paper! I would love to do this in my area but I have no clue how to start up a website!!

I would say the amount of money people make on here differs greatly depending on the topics chosen, but it's great to hear that you are earning an income!!

Thanks a lot for this wonderful hub with a lot of meaningful information. My workload in school never allowed me to continue after publishing 20 hubs, but once again I feel rejuvenated and promise myself to write a lot of good hubs in the coming 2011.

One more thing I would like to say, you might add onto your hub: Your incessant thanking to all the people who commented, you never thought that getting back and thanking all those who stopped by your hubs was unimportant; I DO feel that is also important for a good hubber. Wish you and your family a very happy new year!

sriparna - I had no idea this Hub would do so well when I wrote it!.. The comments have went beyond anything I could have ever imagined! I love it, and I love hearing from people. It's good to know that I have given them even just a little bit of hope! Best of Luck to you in your writing endeavors!

MikeNV profile image

MikeNV 5 years ago from Henderson, NV

The single most important thing you can do to make money with Hubpages is to write about topics where there are lots of commercial advertisers willing to spend. Why? Because the majority of money made by new members will come from Adsense. And Adsense payouts depend on the amount of money Advertisers will spend. The easiest way to do this is to pick your topic of interest and do a search in Google... if there are plenty of Ads in the right hand column then there is a good chance there are plenty of Advertisers.

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

janjesant - Thank you! When I first joined I only hoped that one day I would make money with my words. I truly felt that I had a few messages to put out to the world and felt that HubPages was just the ticket for me! I feel as though I have been welcomed with open arms by the community and hope that you will feel the same!

Try to view it (rather than free time) as your second job, you want to earn income from your 2nd job don't you? It just happens to be a fun job! One that you like doing....

Best of Success to you both!

Hi thanx a lot. I am a new hubber and was looking for this kind of good hub. Itd a great job. I have read too many hubs and trying hard to increase my income fron adsense but in last 2 weeks i have earned nothing. Should i continue writing hubs or look for a new job?


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

@ Gail Anthony - Thank you, I appreciate the earmark as well!

@tanny15 - It will take some time to earn a decent income, the Hubs age and mature over time and those bring in viewers and with that hopefully income. If you are surviving on 'air' at this moment, then YES I would say get a job, and write in your free time.

I see you have 3 Hubs in 10 days, that is not going to bring you much income. I have over 100 Hubs and make varying amounts per day, some days are good some not. But whatever I make, it's money I didn't have to begin with.

HubPAges is not a get rich quick scheme. It's going to take time.

Thank you both for stopping by!

I am getting comments posted to my blog quite often and that does make me happy, it means people are visiting my page. I will definitely read this again and make the appropriate steps towards getting more traffic and writing more. I did receive my first check from Google a few weeks ago and although it was small it was huge to me and definitely has motivated me to put more effort towards my blogs. Thanks a million for all your tips, time to make some more $$$$ :0)

newyorkcitygal, you've been with HubPages for 2 years? How long have you been away? Welcome back! My guess would be that you sort of forgot about HP and the check from google reminded you? That is the residual income I referred to...

Alexander M - Thanks!

tebo - Keyword is at the whim of the general population, I write what I want to and hope it connects with what the people want.

Cereal4two - Isn't it funny how things like that happen? That's how I get ideas, just doing regular stuff and it comes to me. It doesn't always end in a finished project, but at least I'm keeping my mind busy.

Awesome Hub Sweetsusieg! As you know already, with Google just from this Hub alone and all the comments from fellow hubbers you have built up a ton of authority in the community. I agree with your every word and with just 2 Hubs I've actually seen a couple of bucks flow in. Making an investment in some time to learn about Google Trends and keyword tool is a must for those who want to succesfully hub full time. Like you said though Susie I will just keep writing!!! Thanks so much again.

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

Well Thank You!! Those are certainly encouraging words! I'd better be careful so my head doesn't get too swollen! LOL Glad to hear that you are seeing some money coming in! I have yet to figure out keyword and stuff like that. Personally I think it's a whim of the people. Of course there is the ever popular 'How to make money' but there are so many ideas on that, it would take a super special writer to get to the top of the page!

@ malonge - As far as making money, I think a lot of it has to do with the whim of the public and what they are looking for. I checked out several of your Hubs, the ones I looked at, well they could use a bit more feeling in them. They seem... impersonal, like a short commercial on television. Your Niagara Falls Hub seemed pretty good.

I write about things that I know. Things that I personally have experienced. Maybe make them a bit longer.

hey there,

it's so true about the part of making money through hubpages. You really need to put in effort and time into it. It's definitely not a get rich quick thing

Sweetsusieg, very informative hub that should make it easy for newcomers to online article writing to figure out what hubpages is all about.

For me I think one of the big plus points of hubpages is not the earnings but the ability to network. Invaluable in my opinion.

I think you appreciate this point as the depth of comment coverage that you provide is worthy of awe.

Great hub, lovely comments. Keep up the good work.

Writing offers people the opportunity to earn income and with a little savvy it is possible to start earning right away and get paid weekly if not daily.


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

I love how you link writing on hub-pages to working at a job. To be honest, I am using hubpages as more of a hobby, and a way of recording some of the things I think about on a daily basis, but have set a target of writing up three hubs per week.

You mention in your article about using adsense and amazon. Would you recommend using both together or just staying with one?

Just about to go and read more of your work.

Again, thank you for the article, it has been very informative.

Good advice Thank You, just like all good things you have to work it. I was in the off-line fashion business it took years to build it up but it paid off :) the same thing holds to be true online...


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

@ Bella - You are welcome!!

@ writer83 - Being a full-time Hubber is lots of fun!!

@ kenoscully - Hobby's are great, there is nothing wrong with that! It's all up to you and what you want. I use both AdSense and Amazon, use anything as much as you can toward your advantage!! Amazon is for 'selling' things and AdSense is the ads that are already placed on your pages.

@ smartnet - Yes! It just takes time.

Thank you all for stopping by and commenting...

There is a lot of helpful information here, especially about reading and commenting and getting to know other Hubbers. I just wrote my first Hub and am excited to start the next. I wish I had read this first because I already applied for Google Adsense with only one Hub. Oh well... thanks again and keep writing!

Very helpful article for anyone who is just starting here. I've been signed up here for a while, but had so many irons in the fire at other sites, that I had to narrow it down to a few with high Alexa rankings and HubPages is right up there. Very cool! I hope to be doing more here and meeting more nice people like you. God bless!

Thank you. That was very insightful and educational. It is obvious that you took the time to do some research and relayed the information in an organized fashion,and

I appreceiate it. I hope to do this part time as a way to supplement income while I go back to school.

@ Apepperson - So glad you enjoyed it! I try to give 'something' in my work. So the person leaves with a decent understanding of what I wanted to say.

@ khmohsin - Thanks!

@ seul_78 - It shouldn't be a problem, it takes a couple of days for Google AdSense to approve, so in the mean time, just keep writing!!

@ jseven - I understand, as you get going you get more and more ideas, so you just keep on a forward motion. finally in order to get anything accomplished you have to stop and figure out where your making money at, and where your wasting time at!

@ zduckman - I'm not sure how much money you are looking to make from HubPages, but it is going to take some time to build income from HubPages. There are some fellow Hubbers who make darned good income!

Best of Luck to you!

Thank you all for stopping by and commenting!

@ ctscott860 - Glad you liked my Hub! Way to go on the energy level! (For future reference some folks will not approve your comments when you have added a link into them)

@ newadamadamz - Okey dokey!! Best of Luck to you!

@ topmodelof2011 - You've only been at it for 6 days, I promise you it takes longer. It took me almost 3 weeks to even see a penny. At that point I had written over 25 Hubs. Don't give up!! Keep on writing!

Thank you all for stopping by!

This is one of the best how to's I have come across. You really helped me relax some of the pressure I have been imposing on myself here lately. I have been doing what you said almost exactly. It is very nice to know my efforts are on the right track and it will just take some time to get going.

You also have a great way of explaining things in a simple and soothing manner. I really do feel less pressure to make my hubs overnight hits now. You have a new follower =]


Sweetsusieg profile image

Sweetsusieg 5 years ago from Michigan Author

@ sppedbird - Thanks! So glad you enjoyed it!

@ DaNoblest - Excellent! That's the best thing to do, no pressure, it will come. Just breathe - in and out. If you begin to feel a little stuck, take a walk or drive. Just look around at your world. It will come.

Thank you both for stopping by!
