I don't write hubs to earn cash from Adsense clicks, if I did I would be writing about other topics entirely. For me it’s about getting traffic to my main site and making high value conversions there.
So, although my Adsense earnings might be small, as a referrer HubPages is responsible for a steady stream of traffic to my site that converts well. Misha´s comment referred to income from hubs not from HubPages.
Perhaps traffic plays some part although I am not sure. My understanding is that it is based on how you interact with HubPages. The more often you post a hub or comment on others, how often you ask or answer questions, how often you take part in the forums and how many thumbs up your articles receive all count I believe. There are probably other factors as well but it’s not really that important.
I doubt if Hub Score affects or reflects earnings. Finding a profitable niche to write about is what you should be thinking about if your long term strategy is to make a worthwhile income from HubPages.
I have made a living working online for over 10 years. It took me two months to establish my revenue stream that was sufficient to pay the bills. It's a HubPages myth that success takes forever. But you do have to be nimble, have lots of different online revenue sources, and work mind-numbing hours.
I have hundreds of websites, in dozens and dozens of niches, and work with over 1,000 merchants.
Nelle, I don't think it is a "HubPages myth" that success takes forever. For most new Hubbers, who've never worked online before, there's a learning curve to writing online. Of course, people with previous experience can hit the ground running.
I don't make a living online but I make enough to pay my supermarket credit card bill each month.
I know several people who do make a living online, but they worked silly hours for two or three years to get to that point.
That's why I've increased my adsense and ebay income. Neither of those programs gives affiliates in nexus states the boot. I've also been educating my state reps about the impact of such a bill
You also can work with companies like K-mart, Office Max, Sears, and Wal-Mart that have a physical presence in the states. That way, they would have to close down their physical stores as well as fire their affiliates to get rid of the local nexus.
I would not want to leave Massachusetts, because I depend on our health care law to guarantee my access to decent health care. It's NOT subsidized health care but it's available and at $872/month a good buy. It's a great place to live for lots of other reasons too. So I'm trying to learn how to fight the laws. It's been defeated in many states when the state reps learn the true impact and it's been the PMA effort that did the most help.
Me, too. I've been writing for content sites for almost two years now. I've seen my income move up with the more I write. This is the year I'm determined to write even more and develop my own sites, as well.
For the hubber who started the thread, it's possible to earn a living , but not just from HubPages. That should me one part of a whole strategy.
Hi All. Bear with me for this question (not even sure if I am in the right topic).As an accountant I can't help but ask - do you declare your online earnings (whether from Hubpages or in freelancing sites) and pay the...
