For those of you who are quite successful on Hubpages monetarily, how did you get to where you are? Can you offer any tips for beginners like me?
Keep writing. That's all there is really. Once you reach a certain number of hubs - and it varies according to whether you write about popular topics or not, your traffic should increase along with your earnings.
Hey there, welcome. Looks like we arrived around the same time. Did you get approved for Adsense yet?
Your hubs look really good and interesting, so try and get at least 20 more hubs going in the next few months, promote them on any social sites you feel comfortable with, (try not to overshare) and I think you'll start seeing your pennies turn into dollars if you haven't already.
I haven't reached payout yet, but I'm getting closer by the day so there is hope. Maybe some more seasoned hubbers will also reply to you, but most of them will probably tell you to be patient, edit your hubs well, use Google keyword searches, and promote outside of HP!
Hope to read more form you soon.
Reach out to the community to build followers and hopefully they follow back.
Don't be afraid to try something outside of your comfort zone - you might surprise yourself (maybe try poetry, or an essay, or write a counter point to something you disagree with)
Quality writing speaks volumes
Financial success = income > expenses
Expenses are 0 on HubPages
On the premise that writing for HP is my passion / hobby / pleasant leisure activity, any money I make here is financially successful because I don't charge for my time.
Facts and figs
This is not an exercise in boasting. I just want to give you some facts of an average long term hubber like me.
In over 6 years of being here, my portfolio only contains 60 fairly well maintained hubs, approaching 2 million views.
I achieve an average monthly income of between $*** and $***.
Per hubber score, I rank 108 out of 50,700 hubbers on Page 6 of
How much do top hubbers make?
If you are wondering how much "top" hubbers make, speaking from my own experience, this is what I can tell you:
Last year, I made it to No1, Page 1, with a 100 hubber score. The glory lasted for a couple of weeks. My ego nearly blasted through the roof, but my earnings were still in the same 3 digit bracket. Ego boosts can give you confidence, or they can make you complacent.
Today, my concerns are not so much for my own achievements, as for the site as a whole.
How many of those 50K+ hubbers contribute valuable content to the site?
HubPages is, as previously mentioned, almost a university for web writing. It serves a very useful service to apprentice authors. While I welcome this policy, I believe that hubbers below a certain hubber score should not be published outside the membership area while they are learning the ropes. In other words, publication should be restricted to hubbers over a certain hubber score.
With this in mind, look at the figures again, my estimate is that there aren't 50,700 authors on hubpages who contribute valuable content to the site. Members, yes, but authors? Come on!
Fewer "authors" and better content is the key for HubPages to survive and flourish. We are a big family. Almost too big to take care of everyone.
Anyway, I' stop rambling. Main points to consider:
1. Know English well.
2. Say something new
3. Supply good images, videos
