I read the success stories, but are there any hubbers that make 1000s on here? Curious on ones potential.\
I know "some" successful full-time affiliates make 1000s from adsense, but any exclusive to hubpages?
i believe there are around 5 or so that make $2000 or more but is quite rare,what is good is that it seems there are quite a few who hit $1000 and that would suit me fine!!
Yeah man, 1000 a month would suit me too.
Some people may say 1000 is not a lot per month in general, however, if its earned passively that's very good!
Of course, there are other opportunities for adsense. I would like to create a website eventually, but I think I might wait a bit until I get some concepts, and more knowledge.
I am thinking about using sitebuildit. Its expensive, however, its a host, domain, and CMS. They also help you get traffic.
This lady is an expert on adsense.
Is there any reason in particular why you wouldn't just buy your own domain and hosting, and use Wordpress? Or perhaps Joomla, which is a free CMS with some great open source plugins.
As an example, Bluehost costs me about $50 a year. I host 6 websites on there. My domains cost $10 each, that is $110 a year. Wordpress or Joomla installs can be done in a few clicks, free of charge.
Is there anything which SiteSell can do, which Wordpress cannot? There are hundreds of thousands of free plugins for Wordpress, which effectively provide you with the tools to turn your website into whatever you want it to be.
I could imagine that you would risk purchasing a CMS which at some point in the future ceases to exist, which would result in support systems dissapearing, and your website failing to embrace further innovations. Whether that is web 3.0, web 4.0, web 5.0.
Well, I am a bit apprehensive on what domains, hosts, and CMS to use. Originally, I was going to use godaddy domains, but many people say godaddy is not that great.
I feel as it will be easier to find an all-in-one package (that has a relatively good reputation) that offers hosting, domain, and CMS.
Wordpress has crossed my mind, but I am not really sure how anything works with it. Would wordpress be good for a beginner like me?
I just want to get started making a lot of content, and start testing some niches with a host, domain, and CMS that I can trust. (and use with relative ease)
Buy your domains at godaddy, use hostgator as your host and - yes - use wordpress. I have written a step by step here:
Everything you need to know. Make your own sites and use them in conjunction with hubpages. I make good money at hubpages but recommend using your own sites as well - watch out for my entry in the current hubpages personal finance competition. You may be surprised at how much money you can make here.
GoDaddy for domains, hostgator for hosting, wordpress for cms
Hostgator will include a domain in your package as well, so you will only need GoDaddy for future purposes.
Hi David - bit late jumping on the thread but wanted to say I got advised by a few hubbers (Ryan included I think) to get my own domain, hosting and use Wordpress. I was pretty apprehensive as I have only used CMS to build sites before. I started it just after Christmas and now have a pretty good looking website and am finding it really easy to tweak it and add content.
I am not so sure how much of an expert she is, I think she is just very effective at attracting sales through youtube.
There are plenty of people out there selling website packages which you could set up yourself for much, much less.
i'm not there yet. But i'll make it one day.(may be after 5 or 6 years)
I'm working on it. If I didn't think it had that potential and more, I'd be pursuing something else. HP is only one tool.
Personally, I believe that those who are making the most money are most likely keeping their mouths shut about it. I don't really blame them .
There is no reason why someone couldn't make 5-10,000/month on average here with the right strategy over a long period of time.
5% of the respondents who have taken the earnings poll I put up have reported $1000 or more per month, out of about 300 participants so far.

That's interesting relache - I guess it's about right as well, with one or two claiming more than they are earning and others staying in the shadows while raking in a few thousand a month.
When you consider that 95% of people online don't make a cent, despite trying all sorts, it's a good indication of the power of HubPages in terms of natural SEO and other factors that allow the average Joe or Josephine to set up an account and start to earn within weeks, months..;-)
FWIW - someone I know has around 65 hubs and makes $250 from Adsense a month so if he had 4 times as many hubs he might get over $1000 a month - takes time though
Wordpress is very easy to learn CMS in comparison to joomla,drupal and mambo. Try using wordpress software by opening account on wordpress.com, you'll learn things quickly this way before investing money on hosting.
It's very easy to cloak affiliate URL's with wordpress. It's very easy to add amazon products on wordpress blog posts. There are tons of wordpress plugins that allow you to monetize wordpress using adsense, amazon and other ad networks. Wordpress has some adsense ready themes which you can use if you want aggressive ad placement on your sites/blogs. Wordpress is perfect CMS for monetization, content marketing in comparison to most of the CMS out there.
Well I have progressed from pennies to dollars on HP...so that's good progress for me But the only real way to make serious money online is through self-hosted blogs. No two ways about that. I feel there are a lot of limitations on sites like HP and Squidoo when it comes to affiliate links. You just need your own home on the net.
With Adsense and Amazon, I plan on making that much on hubpages ASAP. It is more than achievable... For everyone.
I've made over $100 to this point this month. And am so upset I don't have 40,000 hubs.
I think a better question would be HOW.
If you look at the hubs of those who say they do well, most of them are strongly focused on products and how-to's. That's where I make most of my off-HP advertising related money, too.
Obviously the success of specific articles depends primarily on search engine traffic. If your targets aren't in the first page of Google, your income opportunities are cut sharply. That's basic, and so is the obvious point that being number one for a search nobody makes is also not going to net you much.
You spend your time on research, writing and promotion. Different people put different emphasis on each factor, probably because one or the other is more enjoyable for them. I simply like to write, someone else may love keyword research and another may prefer aggressive SEO techniques. Some super achievers do all of it well. Those are the folks to emulate.
How to guides are a great way to get traffic and make sales, if you think about it if someone searches for a how to article, and then sees a kit on Amazon that has everything you need to do it - cheap, then they will probably buy it.
I bought the domain latesthowtoguide.com jsut for those keywords a few years back, and have slowly been developing it jsut because it contains those three keywords. My focus is on other projects righht now, but when things level off that will definitely be my next 'big target'.
