    I'm brand new to this whole hubpages and blogging thing. I was wondering if, in your vast knowledge, you guys could point me in the right direction of learning about SEO and things like that. Ideally I would like to maybe build up to making $1 a day per hub, I don't know if this is realistic or not, maybe you guys can let me know.

    Sorry if this topic has been brought up before. Feel free to flame haha

      I have a few hubs on the basics of SEO and how to optimize each page, if you want to have a look.

      I'd love to me making a dollar a day per hub! My average at the moment is about $20 a week for all of my hubs. Which isn't bad I spose I'm nearly at making $100 per month. But I am working on increasing my google search positions, so I'm hoping that figure will go up soon.

    $1 per day per hub is pretty unrealistic, in my humble opinion.

    There are people making $1000 per month with 250 hubs..... thats more like $4 per month for a hub.

    I am earning about $2-$3 per day with 106 hubs. So thats more like $1 per hub per month so far.

    People do a lot better than me, but $365 a year per hub? Money just doesnt grow on trees like that. That would mean that I could earn $38690 in the next 12 months by doing nothing. Just not going to happen.

    But good luck and welcome to hubpages.

    I would not go $1 per hub page. One hub page could make you $100 while another makes you nothing. It all goes based on keywords. To get you started in finding highly searched keywords visit google and type in google keyword tool youll want the first option adwords.google.com/select/keywordtoolexternal If you want to know more there are plenty of products out there that teach it or hit me up wink

      Sorry mate, still cant see that! $100 a day for one hub? I doubt that there is anybody making $36500 a year from all of their hubs.... yet alone one. I am sure that it is possible by some sort of fluke; but just cant see it having happened. Maybe I am wrong...... if so, please let me be the next lucky winner!

        I made $200 in 3 weeks on my old Google Adsense Hub, then it died a death. You need to really plan a good niche, I have 2 new serious egos hitting Hubs in a few days with well researched niches that I hope will earn me £100 a month with ease.

          I wish you luck with it.... maybe I will find one of those niches once I have finished my 23 hubs about England 1966 footballers wink

          When you cracked onto that $200 in 3 weeks, it must have been guttering to realise that it wasnt going to last forever right?

        Fair enough but hub pages rank high in search engines and who said all your earnings had to come from adsense online. An affiliate product could land you $100 in one sale. It is possible if you know what you are doing. Creating your own sites a bad idea as google hates new sites and back linking. While on hub pages and can backlink like mad and not be flagged for it because of the size and how old the site is.

          ryankettposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I dont doubt that it is possible mate. If somebody spent $1,000,000 through one of my Amazon hubs tomorrow, then that hub has made me more than $100 per day for 12 months.

          I know that there are success stories, hubs that really do 'make it'..... but I still believe that $100 every single day, from one hub, would take a lot of genius, a lot of work, and a hell of a lot of luck!

          Im sure it can happen; but then I guess nobody is going to shout about it if it does big_smile

    Thanks guys,

    I figured that $1/day maybe fairly unrealistic. Just wanted to get some feedback to see if anyone was doing it or anything close to it. Do you guys post or articles on any other sites other than HubPages?

    Thanks for the words of welcome!

    I've been writing hubs for two months now, admittedly a bit sporadic due to other committments, and so far I've made slightly less than $5 in total, but I think the first few hubs are a bit of a learning curve.  Good luck

    I'm having trouble making $1 a day per actual website, it would be extremely difficult to do that per Hub.  As for SEO, you should use SEOBook.com, but you can really get all the information you need by reading forums.  It's all about keyword research, content built around those keywords, and link building.  That's SEO.

    If your good enough you can make $100's on one hub alone. Its all up to your traffic, your google ranking, and your promotion.

    SEO is a tough game to play and earning online is even tougher.

    Earning a dollar a day per hub would create a lot of very happy people here.

    It really is a matter of what you are willing to put into it.  I make a very nice second income for my family but working online is my full time job and I treat it as such.

    HubPages is great but if you want to earn more money you will have to look into multiple streams of income.

      I could earn a dollar a day on Hubs standing on my head in the toilet during my teabreaks. I deleted 50 hubs on my old account that were making me over a dollar a day. But you can make more, tis finding the Holy Grail, my next two egos will !

    Making $1 per day for every hub is unrealistic, but making an average of $1 per hub is a accomplishable. (apparently thats not a word?)

    If your only real income is the adsense program, than your in for a real battle.

    But with a good balance of properly researched hubs using many income streams, $1 per day per hub would be a bad day.

    For example, one of my hubs would easily subsidize 15 others to reach that average.

    Badco, why the hell would you delete well performing work? are you on some sort of meds?

    its not wise to delete any hubs, tweak, edit, revamp...sure, but deleting is pointless, esp when published under a pseudonym

      Hes just an enigma, thats like asking George Best how to be the most charismatic footballer. It's not something that can be explained wink

      We all know that BadCo runs the site anyway, most of the people on here are controlled by an unknown anonymous man at the top of the empire state.... 500,000 hubs?

      250,000 of those were written by the man/woman/machine behind the BadCo login..... he is so rich that he hires a stripper to hold his willy whilst he pees.

  15. visitmaniac profile image59
    visitmaniacposted 7 years ago

    SEO basics,

    1. Find a topic you want to write about
    2. List seed keywords about 5 - 10 that have to do with your topic
    3. Search you keywords on nichewatch.com and also google type in google keyword tool first link is the one you want type in your keywords see what ones get the most traffic as in searches
    4. Go to google type in those keywords and see how many pages you are in competition with.
    5. Figure out what it would take to rank on the first page of that keyword by visiting the 1st and 10th site on the listing.
    6. Create you hub and include those keywords about 3-5 for the topic at hand. Each keyword should show up about every 300 to 500 words or 3 times within your writing for the hub.

    There are other factors but way to much to go into great detail about it however that will get your feet at least wet

    Providing you're prepared to work hard I'm sure you can make that and more from article writing on hubpages. But as others have said it takes much more than simply writing the articles and waiting for the cheques.

    There are some great hubs on the subject, there's loads on the web in general (as you might expect). Just don't get suckered into the idea that it's easy money. If you want to do it for a living you're going to have to put in the hours. If you do, it's there to be had.

    Good luck and I hope you enjoy it along the way.
