I need a good topic, good keyword, and anything else "good" so I can publish that one spectacular Hub that will earn me at the minimum $102.45.00 annually. Not asking for much, but that would suit my current needs and my expansion needs just wonderful!
I have thoughts, but then again, this is a family friendly site, so those thoughts are out the window.
I am sure that someone out there has the information I need and will fill the sudden need to supply me with this requested information!
You got it, me just posting in the "Freeform Discussion" doing what it says it allows me to do!
I think your instincts are good. Go with those thoughts which are not family friendly. Check out various female celebrity iCloud accounts and you will find your fortune. Keywords are "(insert female celebrity name) sex tape" and "(insert female celebrity name) naked."
Baby sloths, cats and Bandersnatch Cummerbund, or whatever that man's name is, seem to be very popular on social media. I'm pretty sure that if you photomanipped Made-For-Pinterest pictures of Mr. Cummerbund in compromising positions with baby sloths and cats, you would get quite bit of traffic. Of course, such images might run afoul of some law or other, or at the very least Hubpages' policies regarding excessive promotion of baby sloths, but until Mr. Cummerbund's lawyers or the Mechanical Turks caught up with you (I'm fairly sure they patrol HP in giant Mechs), you should rake in the dough.
What you are describing is Passive Income earned by writing activities. Passive income is an income received on a regular basis, with little effort required to maintain it... (although Hub pages may not qualify exactly because of revisions and maintenance). Writing doesn't typically require a big capital outlay so there are many entrants who try to do it... hence a considerable slush pile. Good luck!
Buy a lottery ticket Dale - the odds are probably better! However, if someone does slip you the magic keyword, can you pass it onto me (I don't mind ranking 2 below your article) as I want to retire as well, preferably to a warm, sunny beach somewhere.
The key would be to write a lot, and I mean a LOT of good quality, evergreen hubs. It would take a lot of work because you need to stay on top of them and revise them as needed. However, if this is what you are doing full time it would not be impossible.
I think the amount of money a person can make on Hubpages is going to depend on the niche topic. Some writers have very few hubs and are able to make a good amount of money because the niche targets an audience who buys.
Here are some multi million dollar ideas. All you have to do is write a teaser hub followed by an ebook. The only stipulation is that your answer to the question MUST WORK for people in real life.
*How to cure cancer *How to make $50k per year online income (what exactly it takes or a step by step process) *1001 cash in hand or black market jobs *How to make different drugs at home *How to win the lottery *How to lose 50kg in 6 weeks etc
You need something that everyone will share because it's so effective and WORKS! Just take a look at Alan Carr with that quitting smoking book.
