I know this is a redundant question but,
Am I writing about the right things? How do I find out if the categories I write about are good?
You have to remember you split 60/40 with Hubs so, some of the clicks will be captured by Hubs.
If you are targeting hot keywords, chances are it will be hard to rank in Google without doing some SEO, mainly backlinking.
The quick and easy way to check for topics that have a decent adsense payback is to search for your topic "Mental Health", then see how many pages of paid ads there are. If you have 2 or 3 pages of paid ads, then chances are the payouts for that topic are good. Just remember, the bigger the adsense ads pay, the more competition there is.
where exactly am I searching? on googl.com? 2 or 3 pages of ads?
When doing a Google search, the ads at the top and on the right side state "sponsored links", the results in the results in the center are called "organic or free" results.
The sponsored links are people paying for these ads, if there are 2 or 3 pages of paid ads, that topic will probably pay good when you write a Hub and get clicks from the adsense ads on your Hubs.
On your "Writing Hubs Is A Tricky Business" hub you have 7 links to other peoples hubs. I assume they are the suggested links. Am I correct?
You've given your audience 7 other opportunities to click off to somewhere else rather than on one of your own ads.
I'm seeing people take this HubKarma thing far too seriously. I don't care for it. I don't care if it impacts my HubberScore, and when I see people linking haphazardly (I'm not saying you are) to things like topic pages I wonder whether or not they want to keep their reader or just send them off quickly somewhere else.
I'll link to other people, if it benefits both myself and the reader. But I'm really choosey.
So consider what you're doing with your visitor. Do you want them to read your entire article? If so, then don't link elsewhere. Or save it for right at the bottom. I'll crosslink my hubs, if they're related. Such as my philosophy hubs. For instance in my hub about Socrates, when I mention Plato the first time, I'll link to the hub I have on Plato. And vice versa.
And if I don't have a hub on a specific 'thing' and I think it would be of benefit to the reader, I'll link to it, but I'll also put in my referral tracker.
wow. so i gotta do 75 hubs over?
great tip thou
you know I never thought of that...I figured most people would just keep reading and ignore the links, know what i mean?
Agree with Darkside. I personally think the suggestion tool was one of the worst ideas ever.
To remove a link, simply go into edit mode, go into the text capsule, highlight the linked text and click on the break link button.
that will take too long. I don't think so. People don't click on link anyways....do they?
And your score goes down w/ bad hubkarma
but I will in the future link to myself if possible. I have been doing that.

Currently my hubs are running ads through both the HP ad program and Google Adsense (External Affiliate). I am thinking of disabling the Adsense ads on a few hubs only considering that it will raise the CPM of HP ads....
