A: I want money B: get paid for clicks. C: On average 1 click for every 100 unique page views. Therefore more page views=more money. Therefore I want as many unique page views as possible.
Use this process to create Hubs with high traffic:
a.Write article on something that people will want to read and might make readers end up buying something.
b.Google doesn’t like bad grammar and spelling
c.use keywords in the article in such a manner that people don’t notice anything odd
i.one in the beginning of the first paragraph then more spread out through the rest of the article. (I heard 3-5% of the total article from someone…)
a.make title and url the same and contain keywords
3.Google adwords keywords tool.
a. Select keywords that are searched frequently enough but aren’t too competitive.(Yoshi suggested 300 to 5,000 searches a month as a floor and a ceiling)
b.Use keyword phrases with 3+ words
c.“shotgun” in addition to crap-load of relevant competitive keywords and misspellings suggested by adwords include some of your own that seem like they would also fit.
i.post link to article on every social networking site known to man.
b.blog warrior/get links posted on relevant blogs and websites run by others (internet street cred)
5.Make sure to have relevant outbound links from article
Did I cover everything?
I compiled this from the orgy of information on the HubPages. I'm unsure how to cite the contributors.
Great job! Here's my two cents:
1) In many niches, earnings aren't directly proportional to unique page views. They're a factor, but not the biggest factor. It honestly depends.
2) Backlinking is its own art form. I don't do it. I don't think it's necessary for long-term earnings, and it's a lot of fuss, and it could be wasted effort or even backfire if the backlinks are perceived by Google to be too spammy. I think there's an advantage to letting your backlinks occur organically, but many differ on this point. I'd say a good rule of thumb is that if an article isn't performing well after a few months, consider devoting the time to creating quality and long-standing backlinks to prop it up. One way to get organic backlinks is to...
3) Include something or somethings in the article that cannot be found elsewhere - value added that others don't add. Something useful. A reason to return. A reason to stay on the page and read. A reason to click on an internal link to another of your articles. I can't emphasize enough how important this is to long-term earnings, and not just insofar as it gains you quality backlinks.
4) A major part of keyword selection when you're starting out is choosing keywords with low search engine results competition. As you get a handle on things and all your internally linking pages' rankings in the search engines improve, you can rank for pages with more competition.
5) Take the extra time to fiddle with capsules and break up text so that ads fall in optimal positions. This can drastically affect earnings.
6) After about 4-6 months, check to see if your non-performing articles can be tweaked to earn more. Tweaking can mean changing keywords, adding content, making content up-to-date, changing layout, etc.
You're really on the right track here...good luck.
I would add write "an article people will be interested in reading."
Wow - helpful information with a lot of research in this post. thanks
Great outline, Falsor Wing I suggest turning it into a Hub also great for Newbies.
Yes you seem to have covered all the key areas. Well done Falsor Wing.
Yup, you done did good..
I'll add my two cents in here as well. You basically covered everything pretty well, still, it's a very simplified overview.
When you write, write. And then once you've got it all down, go back and edit it. Re-read it to make sure that it's written in clear language, and keeps people interested. I mean, hell, people visit this site because they want to read interesting, entertaining articles, right?
But, you got that already..
After you're done writing, then you do need to do some marketing. This is a process that is ongoing. For example, I mainly write about Oklahoma, because that's what I know. I tend to write either about historical aspects, or about unusual places. This is called "niche marketing." There's not a lot of information about these places out there, and it's stuff that people want to read about, so it's a perfect fit. I get top rankings on Google, and usually have a pretty decent click through/impression ratio. Doing research on keywords and backlinking helps a lot - keywords make you money, backlinking gets you noticed.
To the point, when writing, find something that you enjoy writing about that is going to fill a void. Broad articles get noticed, but rarely. Focused articles get noticed quite a bit, but only by a select few. The key is to find a market gap somewhere in between - and that's where you'll find the monkey.
Anyway, it sounds like you got it all sorted out. Keep plugging away.. You'll be fine!
Make sure you link all your hubs together!
It's a good idea to write a few hubs in the same niche, then you can use the "Groups" feature.
Oh, and pictures of celebs get a lot of traffic, but you don't make any money from clicks!
Well done Falsor Wing, a great post that will be a valuable resource to newbies, I agree with the others and encourage you to write a hub on the topic.
Great checklist/info Falsor Wing. At least, I'm going to use the information you've provided as a checklist!
You are doing well - your Hubberscore is 95 after four weeks and you are have 24 hubs in that time.
Try to enjoy writing the hubs now you have worked out a 'formula' that helps. Some of my most random hubs have faired better than the ones I have tried to follow guidelines on. Luck and time comes into it too.
If you have Google Analytics set up you can see where the traffic and clicks are coming from. But even in Google Adsense you can view it to see which hubs are earning. Wishing you good luck for your Hubs - you have earned it by doing the research.

I made a video game hub that I published in early December 2010. This hub went viral (to an extent). It started to receive 1000 views a day. The views would change a bit between 650-1000, but 1000 was the peak. Even...
