It seems like questions aren't taken seriously in the answers section anymore. I'd love to post an awesomely interesting topic in the forum, but unfortunately this is for my own benefit, hoping more elite hubbers will post some suggestions. As you can see if you view my profile, I've been here only 4 weeks. I started out being somewhat skeptical as to the authenticity to making money on hubpages, but have seen over the past couple of weeks that it is legit. I got my first clicks on just my 3rd day as a hubber. I didn't see a pattern until my 3rd week. I average at least 2 a day now, but fear that is because of one or two feature hubs.
The questions I have are:
1. What are the best items to "promote" to get readers to go to amazon, as amazon is in my opinion a rather expensive online site, compared to ebay and bidz.?
2. I use my analytics to figure out which hubs are getting clicks, but it seems that it is only 2 hubs generating these clicks. If you would be so kind as to deliberate on which of your hubs usually generate the most ad impressions?
That's just a couple questions I have. There are several more, but I don't want to spam this up. I look forward to any suggestions you may have.
First of all, welcome to HP! I, too, was sceptical when i stumbled across HubPages for the first time, but I'm glad i gave it a chance because you're right, it's legit.
You have good questions...as for what products are best to promote, well, you need to do your research. Learn how to use the Google Keyword Tool to search for things that people are "googling" and then do your best to write an informative hub about it. Personally, I have found that Amazon can be expensive for some things, but for the most part is pretty competitive and lots and lots of people trust Amazon, so they will come if you write!
As for your second question, most successful hubbers will probably not want to divulge that information - you know, competition and all!
I am by far not a "top Hubber", but that's my two cents for what it's worth. Best of luck!
I have absolutely no clue what hubs are generating clicks for me if any lol
It is all so random :p
I'll disagree. Add "hubpages.com" so you can see the gross, but Analtytics is the far easier way to break down by pages and moreover you get far more information (such as the keywords used to find the pages).
I know that adding your profile page to google profile will get u. Pr10 baklink but it seems if u post hubpages.com/whatever several times that google may perceive
it as spam. Is this logical thinking?
You won't get a PR 10. Whoever told you that is clueless.
Spam is spam. Go read the Learning Center articles - link at the bottom of every HP page.
I find Adsense's reports far easier on the eye. A sortable column layout with all the info you need is two clicks away.
You also still have analytics... The two are not mutually exclusive. Adding a channel every time you make a hub isn't all that much effort.
So u have noticed a difference in page views bc of adding ur hub URL as channels?
No. No, no
We are talking about identifying the sources of income.
Identifying the sources is easy. Analytics is by far the best without having to add individual links. My initial question was what types of hubs generally have more click to impression ratio from your experience
It has been often noted that the pages that generate the most income are those that might appeal to the least intelligent members of our population. H. L. Mencken said "Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public."
Pursue those subjects. If you are a liberal, imagine what a Tea Party sympathiser might be doing when they aren't babbling in the forums here. If you are a conservative, think about wooly headed liberals stumbling through Google. That might help you zero in on it.
Some of my high value pages were a complete surprise to me, but they are from high traffic, not high ad value. The cpm is pretty much the same, though because I'm usually leaning toward the techie side, it does tend toward the high end of the usual $2-$5 per thousand range anyway.
I'm not telling you any of my secrets because I am jealous of your pecs and abs.
Haha. I will be posting my workout on a hub soon. I doubt many will be willing to do what I do each day, but if you want to learn how to get ripped, this will definitely get you there.
I don't suppose there's much chance your workout is going to include a lot of sitting around drinking beer and eating fast food, is it? Maybe a strict regimen of donut lifts, twinkie curls and sprints to the fridge for another Pepsi?
Shades not all wimmin love a man so damn taut you could hammer nails home with his muscles. For my part, I like a man that looks like he's been at more parties than is good for him.
Fitness is great ... but fun living is much better IMO
Truthfully I probably eat more junk food than most. All I drink is soft drinks. I eat burgers, chicken, shrimp, vegetables and drink beer. I just space it all out. I may have one burger a week, chicken a couple times, shrimp and fish are my main go to's and I drink about every day. I just work out every day too. I don't pig out, but I do eat about 6 times a day.
I hope I do well based on good content etc cause some of this lingo is confusing !
Well after about three months you will see the number jump up if you are writing great hubs and Amazon heck if I know how they pay. My Google is finally paying and I can see potential there. The best place to back link I have found is stumble upon and facebook.
Hubpages does a lot of its own promoting so it is a great platform to get you recognized. I find that most of the people on hub take it very seriously and are professional.
Good luck and most of all have fun...lol
