      Info Bucket, remember that although HubPages is a community, we're also in competition with each other.

      If I had success with a high-paying keyword, I certainly wouldn't post it on these forums, because then everyone else would use it too! 

      My niches don't have any high-paying keywords sad

      The best way to find your own is to use the keyword tool.

      That would be very rare, and I would not shoot for ones like that. If I'm not mistaken we earn 61% of what the advertiser paid to display that ad. Remember though there will be very high competition on high paying keywords. I find it better to work with the low to mid paying ones, and just drive more traffic to my work.

    Type "google keyword tool" into google and click the first link. Bring up columns and show the CPC.

    You can search for average prices. Remember google adsense will only pay you a % of those costs.

    Also, it is hard to rank for high paying keywords - because everyone wants the money.

    @ironher - I am sorry for that and I know there's no need of formality among my fellow hubbers, thats why i did so.
    @WryLilt Thanx for your advice, i will check it out.

      IB, I was joking. smile

      FYI, "please" isn't a formality, it's just proper etiquette. I wouldn't even ask my best friend or one of my kids to do something without saying "please". Saying "Do this..." instead of "Please do this..." is considered to be rude.

    I am a rude person...... smile . Ok then, will you please tell me the truth behind 'high paying keywords'??

    The truth is that the highest paying keywords are almost impossible to grab onto and properly promote. The truth is that if someone knows one that ISN'T already the subject of 20 million websites, they won't tell you because they don't want the competition.  And the truth is that what keywords are high paying changes month to month and year to year.

    It is difficult to understand.  I think you should figure out how to get traffic before you start trying to get competitive with triple-A keywords.

    You want be getting that amount just by adding those keywords to your already existing hubs. You'll have to make hubs around those.

    Mesothelioma, asbestos, mesothelioma lawyers are a few of those high paying keywords.

    Trick is to find high paying keywords with a little competition on them.

    The truth behind high paying keywords.

    There are high paying keywords, upwards of $30.
    There are also people who bid $0.05 for those keywords.

    High quality sites will be the ones that get the advertisements from the high bids.

    The competition for these high value keywords is incredibly high.

    The good news is that if you build a large high quality site you can often beat the spam sites, and receive higher paying ads for that keyword.

    The bad news is that there are many more high quality and spam sites which make it difficult to get enough traffic to get a click.

    This often means that it can be more profitable to head for lower paying, but higher traffic and less competition keywords than high value keywords.

    Eric - thanks for the valuable information.

    Check out my popular get rich quick Hub:

    "New York Mesothelioma Lawyers get down and dirty with secured loans used to pay off sexy students debt consolidation loans and data recovery service hotties"

    I find slipping a little sex into these valuable keywords always helps to roll in the cash!

    Rumors of high-paying keywords are rife on the Internet, but they're not really worth as much as folks think.  And not just because the keywords are hard to rank for.

    Those very high click values you see in the keyword tool are usually for the search network, not the content network.  Most advertisers will exclude the content network from their bids.  The keyword tool does NOT differentiate them, though, and many people are fooled.

    (The content network means pages of content, like a blog or a HubPages article.  The search network means the pages of search engine results.)

    So it's very rare to get a really high value click.  Most advertisers do not make high bids for the lower-converting content network.  They do make content network bids, but the bids are separate and much lower.

    Plus, if you DO get an unusually high-value click, it's not going to happen often enough to add to your income very much.  Try it.  You'll see.

    Your best income will come from the bread-and-butter keywords - those keywords that advertisers bid moderate amounts for.

    So you'd do much better financially to:

    1) Write about something you know about very well, that is very specific (like a review of brand ABC blue widgets) and NOT general (don't write about widgets in general). 

    2) Choose keywords there is little publisher competition for.  The fewer search engine results for your keywords, the better.

    3) Choose keywords there is a fair amount of advertiser competition for.

    4) Write something in your articles that nobody else is including - something of real unique value to your readers, so you'll get good, targeted traffic and earn over the long term.

    So for example, instead of writing about mesothelioma lawyers or structured settlements, which everyone else is writing about and trying futilely to make money at, write about that really cool ayurvedic shampoo that never dries out your hair or the cat bed your cat actually sleeps on, or any other product you've had success with - or even products that didn't work, if you can offer an alternative.

    Why is that best?  Because elsewhere in the world are many people who are looking for shampoo that never dries out hair, or cat beds that cats don't reject.  Your problems are not just your problems - they're the problems many people are experiencing and for which people are looking on the Internet to find solutions.  Advertisers for those products are on the Internet now, waiting to find your pages - and if not now, they probably will be eventually.

    Don't believe me that it's the humble stuff that makes money? Take advice from someone who knows:  Google's Matt Cutts.  His post about start-up ideas is along the same lines:

      Similarly, low priced keywords have a lower value for content networks. So still the high paying ones are batter than low paying ones in terms of $$ earned per click.

      (I am not encouraging or discouraging their use though.)

    I am brand new to HubPages. I listed one hub so far to get my feet wet. I am interested, like everyone, to make some decent money writing for HubPages, however I am very confused to what everyone is saying. I'm here a lot of conflicting messages here and wonder if any of you are actually making any money at this besides the measly $40 a month. I have a love of writing and have a lot to learn, however I don't want to waste my time if I cant pay my bills. Who is the expert? How do they do it? Just because you are highest ranking, does that mean they are the highest paid? So many questions....

    BTW, I love reading all your hubs here. They are all so fascinating and wonderful.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image91
      Marisa Wrightposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      What measly $40 a month?  There are quite a few newbie Hubbers who'd be delighted with $40 a month!

      There is money to be made at HubPages.  Relache pays her rent with her Hubs.  There are several Hubbers making $1,000 a month.  But it takes work.  Unless you're able to work at it full time, there's a good chance it will take you 6 to 9 months to make your first $100. 

      All the Hubbers who make a living online are also running their own websites or blogs. Some ran them before joining HP, some (like me) learned the ropes on HP then graduated to their own sites.   I know several people living comfortably on their online income, but they've all worked hard to achieve that and it's taken them at least two or three years to get to that point.

      There is a learning curve to making money on HP.  You can write about subjects you love and earn money, but you have to learn the right way to write about them, so people will click on your ads.  If you want to make big money, you need to learn how to write advertising copy instead.

      HubPages is a long-term investment. Hubs are like fine wine - they need to mature.  The more they mature the better they earn.

        Randy Godwinposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        You are absolutely right, Marisa!  It takes time to start making money here.  I can vouch for hanging in there and am very pleased with the way my hubs are really starting to bring in the money.

        I think many folks want instant gratification and give up too easily.  Having said that, the content you write about has to be something which the internet is not totally saturated with or you will have a tough time breaking through.  Finding a niche is the secret I think!

  12. Fiction Teller profile image61
    Fiction Tellerposted 6 years ago

    Tracy Ann,

    It is confusing.  What makes someone an authority in a brand new field?  And search engine marketing (which is what writing for HubPages is all about) really is a brand new field. 

    It's not how much they earn, really.  Even if a writer is earning well, the nature of the business means it could be purely luck. 

    I know that sounds strange, but I've seen people (not necessarily at HubPages - I'm talking revenue sharing sites in general) who thought they had a system, but what they really had was one, two, or three lucky articles that took off.

    Others got in at the right time and established seniority in their niches before the burst of new revenue share writers entered the scene a year or two ago.

    And I've seen people describe their "formula" in detail - formulas that turned out to be short-lived, for whatever reason.

    The truth is that there are multiple ways to do it.  There are no single easy answers that work for everyone.  The strategies that work for you depend on your particular history, interests, skills and choices.

    Some successful hubbers, for example, swear by backlinking in competitive niches.  Other hubbers (raising hand here) swear by not backlinking but focusing on SEO in low-competition niches.  Each of these strategies has a place.

    Plus, this is a field where you're always learning.  It's never static.  There's no one fixed set of "how to" rules for succeeding at HubPages or any rev share site.

    In writer lingo...it would be as though a bunch of bestselling writers came and told a bunch of new writers how to become a bestselling author, based on the way they did it.  All have good tips, but nobody's method is for everyone, and luck plays a big part.

    So if I were new and starting out, I'd go with the advice that sounds the most reasonable to me, then test it by writing articles. 

    I'd give more weight to advice from people with over a hundred hubs who've been here more than a year and who just, well, make sense.

    I'd be reluctant to take advice that sounds too good to be true or doesn't make sense.  (The advice could be sound, but if it doesn't strike an intuitive chord, how on earth would I be able to apply it?)

    And just to make sure I'm not taking bad advice, I'd also read from front to back:

    Google's AdSense help pages

    Google's AdWords help pages (for what AdSense looks like from the advertisers' perspective)

    Google's webmaster content guidelines
    http://www.google.com/support/webmaster … swer=35769

    Yahoo's new content writing style guide

    And after writing at least twenty articles, over the next few months I'd analyze how my articles were doing and try some new things.

    I'm not sure what your expectations are, but if you're starting from scratch, with no SEO experience, it will probably take you six months to a year to start earning enough to pay even some of the bills.  As others have said, it's not the place for quick earnings. 

    You need not only writing skills, but a degree of marketing savvy, whether it's intuitive or from formal training.

    You can at least learn it on a part-time basis.  It's a highly flexible way to make a living.

    If you're not earning even pennies after a few weeks, that's a sign that you've got more to learn about writing articles that make money.  And if the earnings don't increase steadily with more articles, or at least stay about the same with the same number of articles, that's another sign.

    If you need to pay the bills now, you might want to apply to Demand Media Studios (formerly called Demand Studios) and learn to write profitable web content there.  It's write-for-hire work and you sell all your rights, but you can learn a lot.
