    I've been working on another website for almost a year now and it is time to join Hubpages. My plan to achieve the 1000$/month mark is ambitious but I am new here. Do you have any advice for a noob hubber? sad

      I would say learn everything you can about SEO and keyword research and also learn about Google Panda and Penguin and what not to do and what to do in terms of Internet writing. Write content that has value, is not run-of-the-mill and not just for backlinks and affiliate sales (not that I think you want to do that, just putting that out there as a good general rule).

      I have a feeling your subject matter is pretty good in terms of money and traffic. So, it might be you will have an easier time than many in this field.

        Thanks, I already knew some of this info after reading about the success of jcmayer777 on infobarrel. I have used his advice on the other platform and yes it is completely true that quality matters. This is why I hope that everyone who reads this understands. Thanks again for your help!

      I believe Dale Hyde has started a thread full of ppl willing to answer your question. I'm sure if you wait a moment or two, one of those experienced hubbers will be by to give you the insight you need in order for you to make a well informed decision.

      I think reaching the goal of $1000 per month just on HubPages would require far more effort than earning $1000 a month in other ways or in a combination of ways.

      HubPages is a nice stepping stone.  It's also a place to get your feet wet and it's a fantastic place to put up material that just won't sell to traditional publishers, but it would be an exhausting way to try to earn a living.

      My advice is to polish your writing skills and submit to traditional publishers and ezines and to seek out paying writing gigs as well as self-publishing on HP.

    If you're looking to make money, you need to write about something that other people will be searching for. I've used the Google Keyword Planner tool for every hub I've written to make sure I'm hitting the right keywords.

    Of course, there's such a thing as too many keywords so no stuffing allowed. You mentioned that you've already worked on another website so you probably already know this. smile I also use analytics and page ranker tools to keep track of how my hubs are doing. It's really up and down here. My traffic was great for about 8 months and then it completely fell off. Slowly coming back up now so fingers crossed.

    My advice is to not let those inevitable dips in traffic get you down. It's sort of par for the course here, and there's a good chance it will eventually recover. Good luck with your hubs and remember to have fun! smile

      "...inevitable dips in traffic". You're right about that. Good advice. It can catch you off-guard, but you're absolutely right--it's par for the course.

    That is a very ambitious figure. I wish you the best.  Very few people manage that here alone, but if you pursue it as a full time job and supplement it with other sources of income, you could probably do it.  To attain that, you have to start by having content. Good quality content that people search for and can't find easily elsewhere on the internet.  Good luck.

    As MT says, that's an ambitious figure.  You might like to read this Hub - the figures are a bit out of date but it does reflect a more realistic take on what people are actually achieving on HubPages.

    At the beginning of 2011, I was fairly confident I would reach $2,000 a month from HubPages within that year.  Then Panda hit, most of us lost between 50% and 90% of our traffic, and it has never fully recovered. You may have noticed there's only a handful of revenue-sharing sites left, and there's a reason for that!

    So long as you're realistic about the earnings potential, HubPages is a good place to write because of the community.   Just don't set your expectations too high.

      Thank you very much. I will have to focus my effort on the latest panda updates.
