    Hi, what was you maximum earning with HubPages Ad Program in a month (not google adsense)?  Is it possible to make much money with this program?  Thanks.

      Up until last month it had never seen payout in one month.

      Last months traffic boost raised it just a bit, to over $100 in that month.

        Hi, wilderness.  Thanks for your reply.  I guess if you earn $100 a month without writing any more hubs, thats not too bad.  The question is will you get $100 every month and more importantly if you add more hubs will you earn more than $100.  Thanks.

      Yes, it's possible to make a significant (or even a lot) of money using HubPages.  However, for most people, it's not probable.  Or in other words, it could happen but for most people it's not actually going to happen.

    Well, since the major traffic increase at the end of the month in August. I made 150 dollars in AUG. If my traffic maintains, I should be able to make several hundred this month, but it depends on the CPM and if Google adsense outbids them.

    Yesterday, I could of made over 10 dollars with HP ad program, but Google adsense must of outbid them because I made several dollars with adsense by itself.

        David 470posted 5 years ago in reply to this

        I believe that Google may outbid the HP ads sometimes & Google ads appear on page instead of HP ads.

        Most of my income is from HP ad program though.

        Yeah, hopefully I can make a few hundred this months september. My goal is to pretty much make several hundred a month.

        On a side note, my adsense reached payout, so I will get about 105 from it too.

        Anyone can make money on hubpages if they put the work AND smarts into it.

        Google has a lot of power over us though, but we have influence.

    I am jealous, yes I just got here, but I've had a blogger blog for almost 4 years and have yet to see my balance reach $25...I don't seem to know what I'm doing. I guess my first mistake was thinking a personal, variety blog would do the trick.

    If I ever get to make even $100/month on a regular basis, I will do cartwheels around my entire neighborhood! No really...I will!

    I am still learning, and perhaps this site will get me into new directions!

    About $75 last month. But that was with nearly 100 hubs.

    Meanwhile, I earned $333 from 101 lenses in one niche account, not including Amazon Associates sales. (No sales yet from Amazon capsules.)

    This "diversify and get your eggs in multiple baskets" thing is a drag.

    Sorry, probably shouldn't have said that. Late night, tired, and a little frustrated.

    It's not Hubpages-related, so I really shouldn't be mentioning it on Hubpages' forums.

    I think you can earn significant $ on Hubpages, but it takes a large portfolio of effective hubs.

  12. Greekgeek profile image95
    Greekgeekposted 4 years ago

    I use on-page SEO. Basically, I keep in mind the terms, synonyms, and phrases people tend to use when talking about my topic. I'm not chasing popular searches; rather, I try to be specific enough in my writing that search engines understand what I'm talking about so that they'll send me exactly the people who will be interested in my webpages.

    I also set up Google authorship so that when my hubs appear in search results, they look appealing (my profile photo is a professional portrait -- it's silly, but good images tend to attract clicks.)

    Most of all, I try to create useful and engaging content, drawing on subjects I know well and looking for ways to convert what I know into interesting or helpful pages. It's the hardest and most effective way to get traffic: create fascinating or useful content that people like so much that they're likely to share it.

      I am just starting out, and over the moon to have earned a whopping, drum roll please .14 cents with my two hubs this month. I was so shocked to see that on my page; I was wondering how that happened.

      I joined hub with the hope that I could get into the apprenticeship program and improve my writing. I am in South Central Los Angeles;  our colleges are terrorizing all the good teachers with layoffs.

              I'm pretty sure all you have to do is sign up and then they do the rest.  But I've been using it for 4 days and I've made double over adsense.  If you try it I'm curious to hear your results.

                Reality Bytesposted 4 years ago in reply to this

                With HPads running the amount of ads displayed by Google is much less.  So it would only make sense that the earnings would be more in this scenario.   I do not believe in trying to fix something that is not broken, so unless something drastic happens with Adsense, I will not be making the switch.

    Cavedweller, some people have different accounts because it lets them write different genres of articles with out feeling they are being judged by their peers. " Top 10" articles do well for money earners but don't look great mixed with political articles.
    Also, you may rank better if there are keywords resonating through your whole account.

      Maintaining the same URL and publish date would be awesome!  I believe that search engines appreciate content all falling under the same niche, at least in my experience.

      It seems that going in to older hubs and shining them up a little attracts search engine attention as well!  I changed some summaries last week on half my hubs, all of them are seeing an increase in traffic.

    I make now between $8 to $9 monthly and I have 14 hubs.  I suspect most of my earnings come from a single hub.  So I am now back in the game trying to create one hub per week plus polishing old hubs and adding fresh content.  I have one hub I am considering deleting but I will add some more content to it to see what happens.

        Actually, the rules did change.  The original site TOS did not forbid disclosing anything about earnings, and not only were we very much encouraged to talk about earnings, HubPages used that info (with permission) as a major marketing angle at the time.

        https://web.archive.org/web/20110101060 … om/success

        That HubPages does't close/lock outdated threads to new replies is the issue actually here, not the TOS.  I've been requesting that feature for at least four years.

    Whether people are here for the money or not, the point is that it is a violation of HubPages policy to discuss how much you earn. That's why this post should be deleted. People are stating how much they made, and taking the chance on getting banned from HubPages. Not cool.
