I know it's probably been asked a 100 times but to be honest I am just too lazy to look - sorry. I have recently joined Hub Pages and enjoying it. I am a professional writer and I am not on HP to make tons of dosh. But I would like to know EXACTLY how I could be earning a few pennies for my efforts. Do I have to go the Adwords/Adsense route, or what? Thanks in advance.
Unfortunately I'm too lazy to give you a point by point description in the forum on how to make money seeing that I've already published plenty about how HubPages works in hubs.
What I will say here though is that there is no 'easy' way of doing it. It requires plenty of get up and go. If you're too lazy to even start a search then I'm not sure how long you're going to last.
I don't write on HubPages to earn from Adsense, Amazon or Kontera but this site does push highly qualified customers to my website. This traffic has a high conversion rate and consequently my all time earnings from my hubs is substantial, in the tens of thousands. (Thats UK Pounds not US Dollars)
HubPages offer one of the best ways I know to pre-sell your services online. On the other hand I have to say that my earnings from Adsense etc. couldn’t feed a mouse. I think that’s because of the subject I write about.
There are opportunities to earn from HubPages that go beyond the obvious channels and for me this approach has been very successful.
That is one choice.
You could earn from Amazon and other affiliates, like Kontera.
I use Amazon and have just started writing sales hubs, so I have no real experience to tell you about with it.
However, I've made a little bit of money from Google Adsense.
I have not made one penny from Amazon, but an occasional dollar from Adsense. Given time and experience with adsense placement and other strategies I've picked up from other hubbers, I'd bank on Adsense.I'm not concerned about my writing, I feel that I can hold my own there, but I still need Strategies 101.Remember, all of the longtime hubbers caution that the first payout will take time. Lots of time.
That's someone who signed up about the same time as me, with approximately the same amount of hubs. I know from talking to her that she's doing extremely well from amazon.
I personally went the adsense route and last month cleared $43. This month is set to do better than that.
Last month I also got seriously into sales hubs and now have 43 - so my amazon has picked up and I've already made nearly $10 from it this month and hoping it will pick up a lot more with Christmas approaching.
It depends what you want to earn from - information (adsense) or reviews/products (amazon).
Mixing the two up doesn't seem to work that well (for example, putting amazon adverts on information hubs doesn't seem to get many sales.)
Yup! The Adsense route! And like other said, you can write sale copies ad start earning for Amazon too but I have noticed that writers find it difficult to write sale copies thus leaving it to the IMers!
However, here is a tip if you can follow: Learn keyword research! Not only does it give you new ideas but also gives you topics with low competition which makes it easier for you to make money here! For these keyword phrases, you don't even need to do a lot of backlinking!
The hubpages help center is really useful, they have made it easier to understand the steps on how to use the various affiliate programs available such as adsense, kontera, ebay and Amazon.
So first you need to decide on what your topic is going to be, then you will need to research to see if there is any people searching for the information, if so then write educational type hubs that will help users and readers in some way.
Or you can take the route of many successful hubbers who are making a living by developing product hubs that sell items people want to buy on ebay and amazon.
As has been mentioned it will take time and lots of reading to learn what will work best for you.

I will teach anyone, anything they want to know on how to make the best hubs if they can just expain to me what i'm doing wrong that they don't make any money. I'm betting that this is purely a computer knowledge...

I'm new to HubPages, so give me a break if this is a terrible question. I nearly have 40 followers, and I have posted 15 hubs in 5-6 weeks. When do you start making the big bucks?

Hello Hubbers,I made 12 hubs between December 2009 and March 2010, which means I have 12 hubs that are basically just about one year old. I would rate them as somewhere between pathetic and woefully inadequate at best,...

I just wanted to start a topic in the forum to see how well some people are doing with their hubs. I've been a member for almost a month and made about $7.50. Feel free to leave how much you make per month and advice...

What with all the "how much money can you make here?" questions. I have decided to share some of my own experiences. Clearly there are higher paying pages than others, but as far as adsense goes, these are my...

I've been a little down about not having received a payout for nearly two years of participation here, but I'm looking at Triond, another writing site, and I must say how grateful I am for the amount of control I have...
