I need to retire

    Greetings Fellow Hubbers From Here and There!

    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! smile

      I have a few hubs that earn those last two numbers every day.
      I would be glad to lend them to you if you need them.

      I have a pretty good feeling that writing a hub outlining how to create one spectacular Hub that will earn anyone a minimum of $102,452.00 annually would probably do it.

        I would even read that one. Which would be good for another $0.00

          Well, it may make me a coin or two if you were to see that intriguing ad over there and click on it!

    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."

    Good luck!

    Anyone smart enough to find a lucrative keyword is also wise enough to keep that information for themselves. Who gives away profitable ideas for free?

          Of course! That would be the "only" proper thing to do! Plus it would bring me some good karma. smile

            Well, I need much less than "$102.45.00 annually", so I will chew on this awhile, (meditate).

              We could negotiate the "shared" earnings. smile

    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.

      A short-term get rich quick scheme!  I like it!  I would have to dig in and do some sloth research however!

    I find that getting a package or two of turkey hot dogs usually does the trick for saving that extra penny or two. I usually go through about 6-9 hot dogs in a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    1. Dale Hyde profile image87
      Dale Hydeposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Always great to save the pennies without any doubts at all!  Turkey dogs however are rough at time unless you have some great mustard!

      According to recent research published on the HP question and answer board, SPAM is cheaper.

    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!

      Well portrayed. smile  I shall wait for the "one" who will drop by this thread and give me the goldmine, however. smile

        Something that is better than bacon. A gold mine of Golden Chanterelles that you can sell to the best chefs of restaurants in Europe or anywhere...

          Dale Hydeposted 2 years ago in reply to this

          That would certainly be a very lucrative key for sure! smile

    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. smile

    1. Dale Hyde profile image87
      Dale Hydeposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Sounds like a plan, both on the lottery ticket and slipping you the keyword. smile

    Writing about 10,000 hubs might do it. Now how to do that quickly.

    1. Dale Hyde profile image87
      Dale Hydeposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Just 10,000?  Well that should not take to long!

    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.

    1. Dale Hyde profile image87
      Dale Hydeposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      I do understand the need for a lot, but as mentioned, some have few and do well, so I would like to have just the one and do well. smile

    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.

    1. Hooks and Needles profile image81
      Hooks and Needlesposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      The problem is to find that niche. The areas I have expertise in, sure aren't the ones.

    2. Dale Hyde profile image87
      Dale Hydeposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      Very hard to find those elusive niche topics that are not already niched up!

    Love this droll idea! Please, when you write your "winning" article, don't forget all of us "Hubbers"!

      I shall remember all the Hubbers without any doubt! smile

      I will keep a list tucked in my desk!

    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.
