I joined hubpages not too long ago and have heard of many successes on hubpages, can any loving hubber share his/her experience and how much he has made so far. I read about Nelle Hoxie's hub on How I made $7,500 in 2009 with HubPages, and that motivated me to start writing on hubpages. I loved hubs that I've read so far. Thanks to all Hubbers and hubpages staff.
I have earned pretty good for the effort I have time to put into it , wish I had more , there is a nice potental to make money here though , you just need to keep on writing, the more you write the more poetntial you have to make da bucks
well, I get the idea Abodabt really didnt mean anything by it. I just thought...perhaps someone should point it out before someone else got nasty..as I dont know you...?...I need to mind my own business..this sort of thing ALWYAS gets me in trouble...
Hey, thanks again for the compliment. Well, it happens to all of us, doesn't it? Most of us are just too eager to speak up for someone sometimes. In real life, you do get into trouble sometimes, but out here, it is pretty harmless so its cool
Lol - I know, but then again I am not an expert in keyword research and SEO, which a lot of other hubbers are good at. I don't pick topics on how much the keywords pay. I just write on topics that interest me. It works for a lot of other hubbbers, so don't go by my experience!!
People who make a lot of money on Hubpages won't tell you because they fear being copied. Mark Knowles reckoned he made nearly 15,000 dollars in 2009 and there is no reason to think that he didn't.
This stuff about writing quality hubs is all well and good as a starting point (badly written pages won't do well) but the real issue is learning to find keywords, getting traffic then learning to monetize.
I hear people say don't obsess about keywords. I couldn't agree less. Obsess! Learn how to use the external Google adwords tool and explore every one of its features (there is nothing in that tool that it isn't valuable). Get SEOquake for firefox to have an idea of the strength of your competition. Learn to recognise the first pages of Google that have keywords a hub will dominate (SEOquake gives you page rank but also look out for top blogs and websites that a hub will never displace). Watch out for social trends and new areas of mass interest. See which other hubs are successful and analyse the reasons for their success.
Sorry I'm in a didactic mood today. Tomorrow I will be a jellyfish.
I joined back in April...didn't start earning until May and I got my first payout in June (I missed it in May by $5 or something like that lol)
To date, my earnings are as follows:
$1,154.85 on Adsense
$398.32 on Amazon
and several hundred across a few other sites via referrals, etc.
I am currently making around $200 a month without doing much work at all at this point. It's really nice because I'm a super busy college student. I built up my hubs in the summer when I had time to do a LOT of writing.
Before I started to write I did countless hours of research on SEO. If you want to earn money on here, I would do research first, it saves a lot of time.
Unfortunately money is not going to magically come just from writing a lot of content.
Wow, you did manage to establish a stream of residual income in less than a year. That's an accomplishment that not many in online marketing achieve. I don't know what your major is, but you are a natural at this!
Thanks, Nelle! I appreciate it. I think some of this stuff does simply come naturally. But to be fair, I used to be a business marketing major before I switched to legal studies and my childhood didn't hurt things, either.
My father runs his own business, so from a very young age I spent a lot of time being in that environment. He used to own an antique shop and I spent a lot of time there. My mom reminisces quite frequently about a comment I made when I was 4 to one of his clients - "Nice stuff, isn't it?" The guy ended up buying a 10k clock and I got a nice commission (for a 4 year old, anyways...hahaha)
I think I've had a pretty eclectic life thus far (politics, traveling, business, science, etc.) so it really enables me to write about anything that is somewhat profitable and I am thankful for that!
I haven't spent a lot of time on hubpages since I joined(I only have 9 hubs) but I have made some money from what I did do(about $40) so I plan to spend a lot more time on my hubpages. I see how much others are making so I am going to use how many hubpages they did as a goal for me to reach. I see people who joined when I did with over a hundred hubpages so I think I better start focusing more and getting more work done so I can start making more money like they have.
I earned a load of money by just writing stuff!It goes to show if you put the work in or lie through your teeth - you too can make money.If you want to know how I did it then send me some money or read my crap.I will...
Please post any other online writing for money scams here.@ Triond I found out that I wasn't getting paid according to the content views -Of course no response, or a goofy non-response is all I got from the 'help'.I...
Hey everyone,Another update from me.$342 via AdSense in JulyTotal since I started on HubPages (back in August 2006): $6,266.04(in contrast, I've made $56 off my personal blog on about 1/4 of the number of page...
Being a fairly new hubber and just getting adsense approval and looking forward to earning I re-visited the success story page and noticed that it is very outdated. All of the "stories" show as of October...
From our blog, we will earn 100% from our ads whereas in HubPages, we have to share 40% of it with HubPages, but still people are coming and writing on HubPages. Why? What are the advantages or benefits?
