Just a hub about Costa Rica Pictures or do I need to add content?
I will in time, but for now I just want to share pictures of Costa Rica.
You need to add more text. I would suggest about 300-500 words. I would also recommend that you read about substandard hubs again:
You seem to be interested in figuring out the least amount of work you can get away with. And I have to ask, if you don't want to do the work, why are you even bothering? You won't make any Adsense income by simply posting photos and one line of text because you won't get any search engine traffic from that.
Well, there are writing blogs and there are picture blogs. If you assume what you assume, then I must assume you are looking for hubbers to do work for free generating content to help promote hubpages.
Yes, but these are hubs, not blogs. There is a difference. This isn't a blogging site.
Hubpages is not a blog.
Working on your hubs is to your benefit. This is a revsharing site. You share in the revenue that your traffic brings. You aren't working for free. Adding content is beneficial to you.
If you just want to put up pictures, why don't you use something like Flickr? They don't require any content at all.
Hubpages isn't a blog, darlin'.
It's a site for useful, original articles.
My advice would be to listen to what Embitca has said to you. Then, go ahead and click the Hubs link on the top left corner of the page here. Then, click on Best. Check out a few of those articles.
If you want to perform well on Hubpages, try and put out useful content.
Anyone can go to google and find the images they want by using the search there. People aren't going to be inclined to click on ads on a page where you type out a couple sentences saying you're in some contest and that your team kicks ass.
Try a little harder, you'll get a better reward out of it.
By the way, if it's true that a picture speaks a thousand words, I have already created enough content for 100 hubs
I didn't even know about the revenue sharing, I just came here because this place was recommended as a cool spot to network. But cool, I just added my adsense code.
Let's make some coin
I'm gonna rank this thing so high in Google, it will crash your servers. Watch me!
Next up is a hub about attention deficit disorder, something I know more about.
You can put in a series of pictures and that would do fine. Many people search for various pictures online. They do not monetize very well (i.e. the amount of money you make on the traffic is the lowest among all topics), but if you love pictures, go for it.
What I suggest is making the Hub titles topical and specific to what your Hub contains, so "Costa Rica Beach Pictures/Photos" would be nice, with an explanatory caption below each pic.
But "My vacation pictures" is too personal, like a blog - search engines will never send you traffic because no one googles "someone else's vacation pictures".
Changed the title. Thanks!
I want it to rank for "Costa Rica Travel" eventually and make some huge moolah selling tours and stuff.
Here is my new one about Costa Rica Surfing
How do I edit my avatar? It looks retarded.

When it was first introduced I was annoyed by it but made an effort to tweak my hubs to get them out of Idle status. Now, a whole load have got zzs against them again and many of them are hubs that at one point were...

Does anyone have a good idea of how many hubs I would need in order to make at least $50 a month through the Hubpages Ad program? 100? 200? Anyone achieved this monetary amount per month yet?

I know I'm starting another lost traffic thread, (geesh, enough already), but...Here's why. As it has been noted, HP has suffered, site-wide - all of us - even the touted success stories, traffic loss due to Google's...

Hey Guys and Gals, Man, I have just about had it with the traffic issues here at the Hubpages. I have published over 100 hubs here in two years. I have won several awards, I have had over 10, 000 views, and I have a...

I am not going to drag up the recent massive plagiarism activity again, but - as you know Maddie - I have found that quite a lot of my hubs have been de-indexed and my traffic here is dropping despite publishing new...
