    make money from Hubpages?

      In a word, yes.  The bulk of my HP income comes from AdSense--I make more in a week on AdSense than in a whole month on Amazon and EBay combined.  However, the money coming in from sales there is also pretty decent.  Whatever you do, don't use HP as a platform to pitch your other affiliate programs.  It's frowned upon, and I've never heard of it paying off for anyone.  Just write plenty of hubs full of evergreen content, and you'll do well.

        Maddie - thanks for that link. It's a great explanation.

    It's straightforward and easy to set up. But as to actual pay-outs, it totally depends on what other streams of income are implemented, as with all other websites and blogs.
    In fact, since Hubpages take a part of Adsense earnings, I guess that selling ebooks (just as an example) can earn you more than Adsense.

      Have you read the terms of service?

      I rather suspect selling an e-book would fall under the category of "overly promotional"!

      Adsense, EBay and Amazon are the sources of revenue.

      It's not so easy to sell ebooks : you must have good ebooks and a sales marketing speech that is be talented enough to hide that it is a sales speech. As for me I have some difficulty to hide things: I would just say "OK I read this book, it's good now buy it like I did myself !"  That would not sell of course as it's too direct smile

      So I really prefer adsense because you just have to write content and if you can find some niches  of yours you don't have to be a talented writer which I'm not either. Still I've been able to reach 80$ per month.

      Now I'm going to try to improve my writer's style because it is worth and I may then double triple my adsense earnings. Afterwards I'm going to try to improve my sales speech because I really see it's also a huge potential for earnings (not so on Hubpages as it is more content oriented).

        How do you  do that I cant get over 85 cents. How much money does one have to  put  into this to make a dollar?

          If you mean towards earning Adsense on HubPages. You don't put any money towards it. Quality content that is unique is the key.

    I think that the quality of the writing is very important, especially in the longer term. Niches and Keywords are all very well, but essentially short-term. No sooner do you find your niche than the neighbours move in next door. Then, it's more important to be good than to be first. I don't mean that the writing has to be high literature. Often that would be inappropriate to the audience. But I'm sure I'm not alone in running a mile from any article that is obviously written more for SEO than public service. You know, this sort of thing:

    The best Electronic Chicken Plucker is an Electronic Chicken Plucker that comes with an Electronic Chicken Plucker instruction book. I found the greatest Electronic Chicken Plucker right here at www.ElectronicChickenPlucker.com . . .

      That's not real SEO Google Search Engine has an algorithm for detecting too high keywords density  wink

      Personally I'm not writing with SEO in mind currently as I am still in my exploratory phase but I do know doing good SEO matters so in the future apart from Writing Style I will do care about SEO and SEO is not about just throwing a list a keywords that's why it's so hard.

        Yes, I know, but you get my point, I'm sure. And you're right too. The SEs are not impressed by a flowery preamble that never gets down to the subject in hand.

        This is partly why fiction and poetry rarely scores high - it isn't 'about' a topic in the way that a SE understands 'about'.

          Nothing prevents you to build a page apart from your poetry or fiction optimized for search engines and pointing towards them smile

            Sometimes it is just fun and enjoyable to write about something you enjoy.  A dollar or euro amount cannot be placed on everything.  Stop to enjoy the roses once and awhile.

      Nice example of keyword stuffing (a spam technique)

    jimmyrich,
    I didn't mean direct selling of ebooks. Hubpages can be used a a source of traffic. If the traffic is converted at a higher rate than Adsense, than good for hub owner wink
    However, as far as you were talking about income from Hubpages directly, then of course Adsense is the winner. Yet I admit somebody can make more with ebay or Amazon.
