I have a poetry bank (like most poets) and some of them have won awards and I'd like to publish them all. But, if they're a slower earner I'll do my articles first. Does anyone who publishes their work get page views? And, writing keywords for a poem is difficult, but I've learned to use the keyword tool. Any tips?
From being here almost three years, and also what I've seen elsewhere, original poetry does not monetize well.
I see. So maybe I'll just do it for fun between articles then. Thanks DS!

Poetry may not do well moneywise. But a lot of people here like to read it.
Poetry gives insight to the viewer about you, your beliefs and how you think.
In one swoop, a person can tell alot about a person from the poetry they write.
Traffic isn't great, but if people are really interested in YOU as a person, then they will learn alot about you.
I think it doesn't hurt to have poetry. It just another areas people can connect with one another.
I say, do it. Your fans will increase, because those who do write poems, know the place the other has been.
As a poet of sorts, I have published a lot of my poems in hubs. I get page views from time to time, but they are not my main source of content.
I mostly do recipes and recently I started doing reviews of local restaurants and bake shops.
I posted my poems here as a means to claim my original content. I have had one of my poems posted at another website without my permission and am not permitted to post that poem on here. They did give me credit for writing the piece but I was disappointed that I couldn't use it again.
My poetry has won merit awards and was posted at poetry.com but I recently found that that site has either moved or no longer exists.
As in all things...the sky is the limit! Go for it! Maybe...someday Poems will become the top hub earners on here! (Maybe ?) With your "Poem Bank"...you will be able to bring some of your best work to appear on the Hub World...and then to Cyber-space...while building up a fan base here of folks who will enjoy reading your stuff. Who knows what will happen after that...? Good fortune in all your writings, Sandy McCollum....Welcome to Hub Pages!
Here's my two cents:
I have a decent amt of poetry up. Compared to other hubs, no they don't draw the views quite so well. Some, though, do better than others. In terms of making money--no, you probably won't see much, if anything, from poetry but the same often holds true for creative fiction as well. You're more less going to get most of your views from within HP, likely from your own fans.
If you have poetry you want to post, I'd say post it! You might find a whole new audience here to appreciate your work. Just don't expect a big windfall!

Hello, my learned colleagues! I am new to this (posted a few hubs last night for the first time). I have been reading forums for several hours today, as well as a few interesting hubs (thank you, Mark Knowles), about...

I'm new here and things seem QUITE shifty I should say. My total page views have been 98 for a day or two and today it is 91. Now unless the Earth began a reverse rotation on its axis near the speed of light I doubt we...

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the...

There are three or four comments(one is at 24 hours so it may not count.) How could I have 0 page views if people are reading it and even stopping to comment?

I was just wanting a few other opinions about this type of unfeatured hub. Lately I have had like three go on the unfeatured list due to lack of traffic. They are some of my first posts here, and I am posting them back...
