Can You Make Money on HubPages? - My First Year

The Year in Review

It's hard to believe that I've been writing at HubPages for a year now. As I approached my one year anniversary, there were several things I hoped would happen.

  • 200 hubs, once I began to get closer and see that was possible
  • 100,000 total page views
  • 1000 followers
  • a regular paycheck

Did I achieve those? Yes! The page views and followers, while not anything I could control, were amazingly feel-good milestones to see. The best way to get more views and more followers is to simply just keep writing interesting hubs and to be involved in the HubPages' community.

The 200 hubs amazes me, as I was overwhelmed when I first started, hoping to average just one per week over the next year. During the first six months of my year with HubPages, I worked a full-time job. When that changed, I was able to devote more time in the next six months to writing hubs. You just write one hub at a time, until you suddenly notice that your collection of hubs is growing!

And the paycheck? It took me about 7 months to reach that $50 payout this past February. After waiting that long for the first one, however, with the help of a few contest winnings, I have received payment from HubPages every month since then. Of course it isn't enough to live on, but it's fun to see income every day whether I write a hub that particular day or not. That's how HubPages works. I'm eager to see where I am in another year!

Income on HubPages

Everybody wants to know how much money you can make on HubPages. HubPages is no get-rich-quick scheme. It's just a great place to write and eventually build some residual income. There are the HubPages success stories, and you can read about them right here on HubPages. Some people, with a lot of hubs and time spent here, do make hundreds and maybe even thousands of dollars every month. I would love to be there one day! I'm realistic and know that getting there takes hard work.

I was thrilled to see my first 6 cents after signing up for the ads programs. That slowly grew, but I only made about 3 bucks my first month. Every month grew, though, some more rapidly than others until my accumulative $50 payout in February. March helped when I participated in the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. My traffic and earnings rose significantly, and I have received monthly payouts since then. That's pretty cool.

My income would be more, I'm sure, if all my hubs were evergreen hubs. Considering that a quarter of my hubs are poetry, I think I'm doing okay. With about $70 per month, I can at least pay the electric bill!


200 at Last!

Yeah, I'm exhausted, too!

My Future on HubPages?

I have been encouraged on HubPages this first year. I have met so many wonderful writers and friends. I have learned about online writing, about SEO, about HTML (a little, anyway!), about RSS feeds, about uploading photos and videos, and all sorts of other things that are useful in online writing.

Networking and exposure has also landed me other freelancing opportunities. Meeting other writers has given me an online support system and a knowledge resource center! I'm excited, too, about the possibilities for earnings, as I continue with HubPages through the years.

HubPages has been my home for branching out to other areas of freelance writing. I've started some writing on other sites and am continually exploring other writing opportunities, both online and print. As I strive for success as a freelance writer, will I continue with HubPages? Of course! It's my home, and I'll never forget that.

And now, I'll hit that "publish" button for number 200!

I look forward to the next year reading your hubs :)

Vicky, well done on 200 and also on your 1 year anniversary - your success is well deserved because you have consistently produced quality hubs which are interesting to read. You have also supported other hubbers on your journey which is one of the nice parts of writing on Hub Pages. You won't get rich in money terms but i bet you feel richer in other ways. Enjoy your success!

I like it!! Thanks for sharing this, sis. I'm making my "goals chart" now! :)

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Omnivium--I often share my hubs on Facebook and sometimes on Twitter, but I don't share on a lot of sites. I try to do some SEO with good titles, but not always. I do participate quite a bit in the HubPages community, but more some days than others. I've seen that some of hubs with topics that people will search for--they do better and pick up more views over time. Does that help?

Very happy hub. I really enjoyed it. I'm not sure I'll ever reach 200 hubs as I seem only to be able to write if something hits me over the head. It is great, though, to be on this site and in the midst of so many ambitious and energetic writers. Voted up and awesome.


Victoria Lynn profile image

Victoria Lynn 4 years ago from Arkansas, USA Author

Pamela--I have gone through different times when I was really fired about writing hubs. I also did the 30 hubs in 30 days challenge, which really pushed up my number. Just keep plugging away! I've slowed down now, but I still try to publish at least a couple a week. :-)

pstraubie48 4 years ago from sunny Florida

This is awesome, Victoria. All of that in one year. Congratulations. And thanks for sharing a little insight to how you arrived here. You are right...writing interesting well done hubs will cause others to come to them. I have learned so much on this journey and will keep plugging along. I did not come here to make money but a ittle money will be nice. I got my first paycheck in September...and now am hoping to earning enough in a few more months to get paid again. I remember the pennies for so long that 10.50 is not so bad to be looking at. Again, gald I read this as it helps to see the success stories ps

This hub is very inspirational. It's amazing how many hubs you've written. It seems like it would take quite a while to be able to write that many hubs. To actually get a monthly paycheck from your writing is also a really great and amazing thing. Someday, I hope to be able to do the same too.

You write so many hubs. Now I wonder if I can do the same and maybe more. I am just at the start and this is so good guide to know what can I expect from HP in next few months.

Different topics, regular writing, community and learnin all the time looks like the best way to make something here.

Thanks for motivation, I'll try to be better! :)

My little "Lynn" sister! You motivate and inspire me so much with your success. I have passed my first year anniversary, and didn't achieve anywhere near what I would have liked to. However, no matter what we want in life, hard work pays off. I remember an interview I saw with the great pianist Vladimir Samoylovich Horowitz, where he told the interviewer that once a young man came up to him after a concert and said, "Mr. Horowitz, I would give my life to play like you" and the Legend simply answered back, "I have." I'm off to write more hubs. Love you miss Vicki ♥ (Voted up+ and shared)

zsobig--Thanks for reading! I missed writing a hub for my 2 year anniversary. I guess I still could, but it would be pretty late. Maybe I should wait until 3. :-)
