Is It Possible to Earn 1000 dollars in a Month Online with AdSense?

Are You Sure You Can Make $1000 a Month?

The question that everyone wants to ask is can you make $1000 a month by using Google AdSense and publishing on various online writing websites such as blogs, websites or Hubpages? The answer is a resounding: maybe.

This is true for the majority of people out in the Internet who want to earn income, according to most sites, 99% of writers, Internet marketers and alt do not earn enough to stop working, let alone $1000 a month. Most people, the ones who do earn that sort of income have one advantage over the rest. They actually spend time learning the basics of SEO, of user engagement and of how to monetize what they write. Sure you can argue you work hard at writing an article, and you've published dozens, no hundreds of wildly popular things. But, honestly who are you kidding?

Publishing and making money do not go hand in hand, and you'd be hard pressed to hear from the professionals that this is an easy adventure, if you want to get paid for your work. The reason why you see some famous facing time and again is that unlike the would be "want to make" people, their work performance doesn't lie.

They publish some darn great blogs, and these are the ones people go to, and tell others about. They also don't rest on their last victory- of about 10 years ago. What's so great about them? They put their money where their month was and learned about Adsense, and took it to the next level.

Only you can build your business up to make that $1000 per month, but what are your expectations?
Only you can build your business up to make that $1000 per month, but what are your expectations?
Yes, We all know that this is a dream for many, but publish more hubs and you will get there.
Yes, We all know that this is a dream for many, but publish more hubs and you will get there.

Can People See All of Your Fine Hubs? Or, is Your Profile too Long?

Let's play observe the best: In this case say you want to increase your income by a factor of 10. It's a nice round number. It's one that you can easily go with when you are dealing in numbers.

Let's do some math here: say you earn $3 a month, on average, with AdSense. Good for you, as you are a part of the 90% of the AdSense publishers. You are doing well. You are probably thinking that this number is horrible, and it is. It's a get a second or a third job to make ends meet type income. It's still income but let's do more math: you won't make a payout for at least 3 years.

Not so feel great numbers, no matter which way you look at it. Now, take a look at your writing. Does it make you want to do anything? Are you saying anything of value? Is anything you've said a repeat somewhere else? If any of these answers are yes, fix them. A maybe means fix it anyways, and no means you aren't even seeing how bad things are.

Should people go and look at your writing? Probably not, or they aren't being found by many people. You might have followers, but if you aren't seeing anything, you don't have the right audience. That's a problem.

If you observe a few writers, see what works and what doesn't in their market. We all have a market we are trying to capture, and the bigger the player the more likely they have a lions' share of the market. This is most true when you deal with highly competitive markets such as the making money or publishing market on the Internet. Everyone has something to say about it. Do you?

How can you earn $30 a month if the problem is what you are writing about?

Can Links Help you Make $1000?Now, for some, say like sunforged and Misha, who have in fact made $100 in one day, (read the hubpages blog or see their profiles for more info) If it is possible to make $100 a day, it is more than likely you can make $1000 a month in this business, but you will need to do some serious business work. Do you want to make money?

1) Understand that in this business you need to prove yourself. You have a reputation, and the way you expand this reputation is by building links. You put links in but you also need to have others help you build your business. Otherwise no matter how good we are Google and others will not care.

2) This is a business. If I can't find you.... The chances to make money (like the $1000 a month) are lowered. That is why you need links to your profile and your hubs. A comment adds a clean link to you profile... where I can find your work.

3) Content. No content or something short which means no $1000 a month. Now, this also includes product reviews. Good content means money.  Making Money in this business means a hub with content.

4) You are your business, and if you use Google AdSense, and amazon and all these other affiliate programs and do not have a following or poor traffic. YOU will not make money on hubpages or other wise.

But I don't have time for all of that... it's just a hobby... but I do want to make money. Looking for a paradox? If you don't have time to build your business... or it is a hobby.

You will not make money online You might make pennies, but if you want to make even $100 a month, it means that you need to focus on links, and traffic and most importantly your online business.

We all work hard on what we love, the more you build your business the more likely you will make money. If you like what you are making be happy. Enjoy what you do, and the money will come but not as fast if you spent time building your business.

To make $1000 a month, you need traffic, and good traffic, and a whole lot of Google AdSense "sense" and other well placed affiliate programs so that your readers have choice. You are the one who helps Google AdSense with making your money by working with your content. A Hub is not a blog, but like a mini-website. You add links to build it up. The more links the more traffic, the more money from the affiliate programs.

This is a business, and the fact remains that without much search engine traffic you will have to work harder at producing quality content. If it is a hobby, and you do what you do to enjoy sharing money is something that is a bonus. this doesn`t work if you want $1000 a month. It is not a hobby if you make that sort of money.

The other thing you need to think about is keyword choices, some keywords seem to make "big" money where one click might make you 20 dollars, however, if you consider this, you will find that often the smaller keywords, which might not make that sort of money, will, if you target your traffic and build your business, make you more money and have a higher click-through rate than the "highest" paying keywords will.

Remember three things when deciding one your choice of topic and writing and adding the keywords to your hubs:  Google does take a percentage from the AdWords numbers you might find, and then pays you afterwards.  You also need to understand who you are competing against.

$1000 a Month!

Think it`s possible to make $1000 a month fast....

  • NO... not fast
  • Maybe... but It will take a lot of work
  • Yes... but it might be a year or more
  • Yes.. easy but I had to work HARD
See results without voting
Think about how much money you really want to make
Think about how much money you really want to make

I Want to make money... or the last word: So, to recap, look at your profile either expand it a bit or shorten it, and then at your hubs you have. This means going back and creating a minimum word count for each of your published hubs. It also means editing them for any errors or outdated information.

Build your links to build your business. Comment and participate on hubpages and other online writing sites.

The begin to learn about keywords, and the best place is to look into the keywords research tools such as Google AdWords keyword tools, and many others. This also requires you to think and have a plan for your business and understand that it is not a hobby, but a true and long-term business.

While this is no guarantee that you will make money, by doing the little tings in this business you will at some point build up your work enough that $1000 is going to happen. It simply takes time, and dong the little things in this business. My guess is that it will happen in about 2 years, with good SEO and an understanding of how hubpages and websites work.

The other thing is to understand that planning for a month for $1000 and having only been writing for a month will also not be helpful to your business, as it does take a lot of knowledge of keywords and of SEO when you are making this sort of money. It is also important to know about changes that can be made to search engines. In many ways you can say it is all about thinking and growing rich.

To your success.

Smd2012-- It's a bit about your profile and a lot of what you put into that profile, I found that the shorter the profile the more likely people see my hubs below, but also I've found that too many links and people are turned off... it's a fine balance I am working on.

Jo-- SEO is the techinical term for begin found by the search engines. In other words, what you do with say a hub by adding links or by improving the content will helpy our hub "get found" by the search engines. this shouldn't be your main goal, but rather editing your work should be.

David 470 5 years ago from Pennsylvania, United States

I think I should be making 100 dollars per month consistently soon. Made my first payout last month, getting close to second payout again.

I think 1000 is good, but we should set a goal of 300 dollars to 600 dollars first.

10/day = 300 dollars a month.

Evidently the hubs to make money with are the "how to make money hubs". It's a science I know little about. I know one of the best writers here on the hubs keeps a score close to 80. That's MFB. Prolific. I like writing but it must be the most boring writing that makes the bucks. I'm not complaining. I just see. I appreciate your writing this. But-everybody can't write "this". I won't go to forums and I resent any hubs or hubbers being "penalized" by not going to forums. It is everything that I can do to visit other loyal hubbers. When I'm done visiting there is another list of hubbers who have just published. I will not get into the science of running by a hub and saying "Thanks for sharing". But, thanks for sharing!

What occurs to me having posted so very many backlinks is they are there on "front page" or the que for a day and then basically buried never to be seen again. I know people are not using scoop sites like they search wikipedia or the Internet in general. It's like everyone with a website goes there to deposit a backlink and vroom vroom: goo'bye! My website (according to the analytics on it) is what is making any (little) AdSense. Backlink sites that peeps see for ten seconds while they post their own backlinks, nah, nobody's reading a darn thing there!

Ciao Rebecca,

this is the theory and it all right. Good job in writing and explaining...But! I t takes a long time and enrgy to reach 100$ a month for common mortal humans like us...+ you are missing all the part about SEO because it is with that part and infos that our personal blog will encrease traffic in a consistent way which is + clicks! The SEO part needs experts because for a normal man like me it is too complicated to learn (even if I tried!)

Ciao and happy Ferragosto! (mid august party)

You know by now, as I have told you, I am still a dummy with all this things, but you are teaching me slowly but surely, to take notice of the other benefits of being a hubber, other than the pleasure of writing.

If I learn well and practise what they preach, I might retire one day with my writing. Sounds like a dream, waiting to become true.

Hub writing as a hobby is only partly true, because underneath, we all want our content get more readers and generate an income. I've started at a low gear, I hope to accelerate as years go by, with help from successful hubbers like you. Thanks for these useful tips, Rebecca.

kimh039 profile image

kimh039 6 years ago

Thanks Rebecca. Great info on linking and backlinking in the video. I kept my profile short out of vanity - like to see the articles. I had no idea it was better to do so in terms of $! I often wonder if it's necessary to maintain kind of a full time approach, or if consistent, effective part time effort over time would yield adequate results. Or if a flurry of activity, followed by a hibernation, then flurry again would result in lost momentum. Any thoughts on that? Thanks for another well written, informative hub Rebecca.


EmmaMedu profile image

EmmaMedu 6 years ago

Nicely described dilemma. I find very difficult, almost impossible to earn that kind of money. But, again, I'm here only for 5 months and before that I haven't even heard about this kind of business.

So, it definitely takes time, experience and constant learning.

I'm still learning and trying to do my best to earn as much money as I could.

But, like you said, if you consider it as a business and full time job, your earnings will be higher. If it's a hobby or an opportunity to earn some money on the side, than one should be content with any extra income.

I read that Ebay is no longer accepting 'applications.' I suppose I should try anyway, but found the notice fairly prohibitive.

$1,000 a month? Well, I'd better get off my duff and write product reviews! Actually I do have some ideas...


dallas93444 profile image

dallas93444 6 years ago from Bakersfield, CA

So far, I have not considered the idea of making money on the hub pages. My original goal was to use the hubpages as part of the process to build a platform and awareness for my book. As soon as my frantic driving 100 MPH and baking a cake at the same time slows down to driving 100MPH I will take a look at making money while I am developing a platform...

tthudium-- that is a generally good idea, but you also need to have a good hub to begin with, something people will want to read, as people are smart, so one bad hub and they won`t be back. simpy aim -- following your idea-- to make several hb which make money a regualr basis will make you your $1000 quickly, as long as you use all monetization techniques allowed.

ZarkoZivkovic 6 years ago from Serbia

Nicely said, good content is not much on it's own, you have to link to it and drive traffic to it with all your knowledge. Nothing comes as we want it to if we don't devote ourselves, this is business like you said, if we concentrate and make an effort it will come in time, we just have to work hard for it :)

catherine74 6 years ago from London

Great tips but people in general have found it very difficult to make money with hubpages. To be honest my main purpose for using hubpages isn't solely to make money so I'm not so hung up on the idea, but if it can really be used to create, a little income, why not?


tthudium profile image

tthudium 6 years ago

I just started and have found how easy it is to make money with hubpages. I think it would be possible to do it as a hobby, write a hub a day, a really good hub a day,and you have over 350 hubs in a year. Spend some time editing and changing them to make about 25 cents a day, and you have 85 dollars a day... do you see where this is going. 25 cents a day for each hub for 30 days is over 2500 dollars a month.

I think is is possible

I'm headed back to my profile. I'm my favorite topic, and I'm thinking I might oughta re work the old profile. It's not a money thing for me. Worse ... It's my newest challenge and obession. I've never written anything before meeting the Hub nation eight weeks ago, but I've received some great support, and I'm having a ball letting people hear those marbles rolling around in my head.

Thanks for the help!

The profile page is perhaps an underrated resource. I have always kept my profile short, but never thought much about the advantages of a short description as a business tool. Your reminders that this is something to work hard at are always good and timely.

Teresa Schultz profile image

Teresa Schultz 6 years ago from East London, in South Africa

An excellent hub and I really enjoyed the video too. To me, the video information can be used as a general linking strategy that could be applied to a website, instead of HubPages, but, of course, HubPages is already receiving lots of traffic compared to a new website.

I also enjoy the reminder, in your writing, that, basically, one has to work hard to succeed at earning a decent income from online writing sites - or at HubPages - and that it should be considered a business.
