Badcompany - you had an experiment to see if changing things on your hubs made a difference (I read your 100 hubscore hub about it!). What was the result? Did you increase the amount earned, did some hubs become profitable?
I'm torn between simply shrugging about my non-performing hubs and concentrating on those that do deliver, and looking to tweak and improve the non-performers so they come good.
That one hub actually made me more money in 2 weeks than the others did in 3 months. I now only write about products that are popular on Amazon hence my Amazon ads or a good Health topic like losing weight or Calories. Most hubs written are just not going to make money. My last 4 or 5 all make money, my first 30 made damn all until I worked it out !
Like Badco, so far only 20% of them are making me any money. Strangely, I've been surprised by which ones have. I sold 7 Amazon items in one day from one hub. Definitely, did NOT expect that. A couple I've written for fun have also gotten clicks. So, as much as I try to apply some science to it all, it can keep you on your toes. I focus on writing about what I like with some keyword research to maximize profits.
20 of my 24 Hubs has earned me money... 2 of them don't have any adsense adds in them so it's 90%. Pretty good I guess. Also don't forget your "extra hub" - my profile page has also gave me some pocket change
If you do the correct keyword research, it is very possible to start earning money within the first day of publishing. As long as your hub gets indexed fast with google (a typical occurence) and your keywords don't have tons of competition but are searched for a lot on a daily basis, you will start earning right off the bat. It's not rare for some hubs so start earning $5 dollars in their first day.
Have only made a few pence thus far, so am not giving up the day job yet. So far have only written for interest, but might give writing a Hub purely for profit a go. As I'm totally lost about keywords etc, my extreme ineptitude as I try to put one together will probably be worth a hub in its own right! lol
I have about 20 that get no views, hence no earnings a day. I wish I hadn't spent so much time writing them, but it was before I started doing research about keywords and SEO! Luckily, my other hubs help carry the weight of these non-earners.
Right now I've got 135 Hubs published. Since the start of 2009, only seven of those have not earned anything. That's about 5% of my Hubs that don't earn, which seems pretty reasonable. If I go back and include 2008, only four Hubs have not earned anything over all that time, again not too bad an amount of underperforming Hubs. All four are less than six months old.
Was just writing to write, lol. Earning some money is good too, though, Have just started using keyword search tool and that has made a big difference in hub score, but where do I get info about how to tell which hub makes more? I check AdSense, but it doesn't say which hubs the clicks are form...or does it? Any help appreciated.
Actually none of my hubs have made a penny! I've been trying to ask hubpages about this since it seems strange to me that in the past week I've had about 100 page views and in the past 2 weeks I've had about 200. Sure, that isn't a ton of traffic, but it seems off that no one has ever clicked on any of the ads on my hubs EVER! Any help/thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated as whoever is supposed to respond to help emails by concerned yet dedicated hubbers is failing to do so. Thanks, Ker
I just took a look at a hub of yours about adsense. It is long enough and has good info. I would suggest two things. 1. Have a trustwothy looking avatar, no avatar= no point of trust. 2. Break your text up in to more text capsules.
I can't see much wrong otherwise, and your writing is fine....
Well, it seems to me that my traffic is never going to increase.I am lucky to get one hit a week now, and the only traffic I am getting is from google.I know that being away for a while doesn't help much, but none of my...
Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
Ok this is not for promotional, only as an example of a recently published hub.http://hubpages.com/hub/Is-Space-Travel-Worth-The-CostThat or feel free to visit my hubs pick a random one..Although a few I understand why...
I opted in to Hub Pro and I just had my first edit. Nothing was changed except to remove three of my four amazon capsules and remove links to other websites that I included to provide supporting evidence for my claims....
