Absolute Proof: You CAN Make Money HubPages

You CAN Make Money On HubPages

 

IT IS TRUE. All the hype. Every bit of it. It IS possible to make money online.

There I was, wallowing in blog obscurity (the blogosphere, to those in the know) promoting, emailing, linking; promoting, emailing, linking; promoting, emailing, linking. You know the drill.

And yet, zero revenue. Granted, my blog was not designed primarily as a revenue stream, but I began believing all the "how to's" and "add sense" and began to think, "...just maybe."

Until, one day, I found HubPages. Now, I am called a "Prodigy". I have fans (really, fans, they label themselves such). I get fan mail (the politically correct term is "comments", but, same thing). And I will soon retire into the lap of luxury.

Thank You All.

...I'd like to take this opportunity to thank HubPages. If it was not for you, I would still be a lone voice in the sea of blogs, and lenses, and hubs. I will sing your praises to anyone who will listen. You have made me who I am today.

...I'd like to thank my wife for supporting me over this past month, and standing by me while I struggled to climb my way to the top here at HubPages. I'm sure it's been as hard on her as it has on me, and I love her more for her support. All the missed dinners, proofreadings, stroking my ego and telling me, "Very good, honey.", I owe you more than you can ever know.

...Last, but most certainly not least, I'd like to thank YOU, my fans; my readers, without you who knows where I would be today. And, to all of the little people out there who made this all possible, I say, "Thank You(!), from the bottom of my heart."

I gladly, but humbly, accept the title of "Prodigy" and the payday that comes with it. I will never forget where I came from. I will remember you all, I promise.

Author's Note:

The title "Prodigy" no longer applies as in just six short weeks I have attained the title "Expert", my prodigiousness was apparently apparent to others as well.

I assume the financial rewards will reflect this expertise as well.

I was the same when I started, Peter. You'll even find a post somewhere on the forums where I asked if I was doing something wrong. However, things are suddenly looking up - I checked my Adsense the other day and I have $17! Yes, seventeen whole dollars!

I've had a blog for six months and only earned 2 cents, so actually I'm pretty impressed. Sad, isn't it?


Peter M. Lopez profile image

Peter M. Lopez 8 years ago from Sweetwater, TX Author

Thanks Marisa. I absolutely love hubpages. I would do it for free. But, yes, the prospect of some payment is great. Congrats on $17. Breakthrough is on the horizon.

Peter! Congrats ! Wow! The interest alone will make it worth your while...but if I were you I wouldn't even think of investing; this being your first major earning go crazy with it, blow it all or buy your wife something nice but also have some fun.

I just loved the HUB

I couldn't stop myself from laughing. I AM SO SORRY pETER. i AM READING YOUR HUB IN THE NIGHT AT 0,45 AM AND LAUGHIN HYSTERICALLY.aCTUALL

THERE WAS NO NEED TO PROVIDE PROOF FOR YOUR INCOME. nOW i AM TALKING SOMETHING SERIOUS. yOU NEED TO LINK YOUR HUBS WITH DEL.ICIO.US, MYBLOGROLL, AND IF YOU HAVE YAHOOMAIL a/C ADD YOUR ALL HUBS IN MY FAVOURITES. oNE MORE THING TO SUGGEST: ADD YOUR REFERRAL TRACKER IN BETWEEN YOUR url. iT WILL MAKE YOUR EARNINGS ATLEAST 1.0 $.


Peter M. Lopez profile image

Peter M. Lopez 8 years ago from Sweetwater, TX Author

Thanks, premsingh. I do all of those things now. I just couldn't help but laugh myself when I saw my first earnings statement was $.01. Actually, I am fairly close to $1.00 now. I'm glad you enjoyed it.


Lissie profile image

Lissie 8 years ago from New Zealand

Funny - nice hub - but remember the screen shot you are showing is only an estimate of your referrals for your actual adsense earnings you have to log onto google - my referrals say $3.45 but I have earned near 3x that figure last month ALONE - so I can buy a coffee and soda! I must say though that I am basically doing much better from HP than my other sites/blogs


luvnlyf 8 years ago

So I do have a future writing hubs! Right on! That was hilarious and just what I needed to end my long day. Maybe you should consider compiling all of your hubs into a book and then selling them to all your fans:)

There is a "Links' capsule that you can add to any hub and insert links to any website. As long as your hubs are not too promotional of other sites, there shouldn't be a problem

Peter M. Lopez profile image

Peter M. Lopez 8 years ago from Sweetwater, TX Author

Furthermore, though Peter you have inspired a lot. After checking out your stub I made the laborious journey to see the fruits of my labor. I have 80 cents from my google gig. I was ecstatic! i had zero forever! I stopped looking. I ran in to my wife in the kitchen and said , "Honey you gotta see this!"

Now for your reward....my good friend. I also checked my amazon account which has been activated and i saw no money......but wait!

I've never put an ad from amazon ON one of my hubs! What am i an idiot? (Please don't answer for me) I know I am.

So tonight for the first time ever and completely driven by THIS HUB ALONE, I give a TOP 5 VIDEOS with ta-dah! Amazon ads! Thanks for the kick in the ass! Here's the link if you don't mind.

You are well on your way to fame and riches beyond your wildest dreams. I do believe I have broken the $20 mark though, but only barely. Luckily, the increases are exponential, so it took forever to get to $1, but the $5 and $10 marks came much more quickly. Good luck to you.

protoprotoss 8 years ago

ROFLMAO @ the .01 coming in handy. Ya'll are funny. If you really want to make some serious cash though with hubpages (over $30 a sale up to $1000s per sale) then you need to get into an affiliate teaching program, such as the WU @ http://WA.ProtoProtoss.net/ which has reviews at http://www.squidoo.com/TheWAU & http://www.squidoo.com/_WealthyAffiliate_ /

Toooo Funny! I don't know if I am allowed to do this, but I'd like you to be able to buy your wife a dinner so you may want to hop on over to http://blog.worldvillage.com/ sign up, write a few articles (even point to your hub pages but not blatently), use the right keywords and very quickly get on the third page of google AND earn several dollars per week! I quit writing for ezine articles and now focus on worldvillage. My monthly income from them averages a whopping $100 now which really isn't too bad. It's 1/3 of my montly adsense revenue. It's 2AM. Thanks so much for making me laugh. I needed it! God bless YOU two.

Peter M. Lopez profile image

Peter M. Lopez 8 years ago from Sweetwater, TX Author

$12 in 4 days is quite impressive. Yes, this was under HubPages old referral tracker system. They no longer preview earnings this way, fortunately. I'll put it this way, I hope that I will get my first Google payout fairly soon. Thanks for reading, I'm glad you thought it was funny.

I have been given some serious consideration to all of the "adword" strategies, I even purchased an e-book from internet guru, Chris Carp____ a while back. Not sure which direction to head but having a blog spot makes sense. That is provided the affiliate links are combined with meaningful content.

Looking for serious, experienced web-marketers who are willing to share some of their insights without the upfront $$$ for yet another ebook strategy.

Hey, great Hub! I started Hubpages just two days ago and posted three articles based on klnowledge I have about working out. Apart from the writing part, I don't have CLUE how the rest works and the stuff about affiliates is confusing, to say the least. But I really, really enjoyed reading this Hub, it's great to see somebody who's been here a while doing so great and it inspires me to continue writing and publishing my own stuff. Many thanks, Kieran.

Does ANYONE make money at hubpages? It's a time consuming project if you are looking at it in a productive way. Of course, I do find writing and reading the hubs interesting and there are some very good writers here. Too bad we could not make some better money from this hobby. Making money online is just plain difficult, and I have yet to meet my first internet millionaire, but I am keeping my fingers crossed...who knows?

robin 7 years ago

I just signed up with hubpages. I'm a journalist looking to go freelance. Well, at least you can make the equivalent of what a bank gives you in interest (that is if you live paycheck to paycheck like me:) )

I have a few places to recommend to you and others if you are looking to write and make some money.

Elance and ODesk are good if you are willing to bid on jobs. The pay is the best, but you have to compete. I did a simple formatting job and made $50.

Wired Flame is good money for writing occasional articles -- most jobs are forum boosting -- pays well, too. However, they only have a few jobs a week. Don't count on picking up more than $20 a week. Only good for supplementing other income.

Associate Content mostly pays on advertising commission. However, if you're a journalist like me who is comfortable with assignments I recommend checking out their Call for Content. Many of them pay up front once you finish the assignment. Typically, you would average $2-3 for 500 words.

Shared Reviews is a lot of fun. Pretty good community where you can review anything you want (i think minimum of 700 words). I recommend first creating a huge friend list to vote on your articles and then create a large base of articles -- once you do this you earn each month on your articles.

Helium seems okay. You earn each month on articles you write. I hear they are switching to a system similar to Associated Content where you get a guaranteed rate if you write in certain categories.

Mylot is easy money if you like discussion room like chats. However, it's a few cents per post, so don't depend too much on it. Nice extra cash -- and you can talk about whatever you want.

Storymash -- still testing it out -- but if you like fiction -- you can collectively write fiction with others and make revenue.

Stay away from Reviews Arena -- they don't run their site very well.

Just Answer seems okay -- still testing it. You have to be an expert in something like health, writing, math, cars, etc.

Well, this is all I have for now. I'm testing some other stuff. Maybe I'll share later.

Best wishes and love to all writers out there

I have been affiliate marketing for about a month and a half so far I made one sale and made $16.55 but that was using clickbank and google adwords. Yeah still waiting to get my investment in adwords back. This article really made me feel better about my success. Thank You.

I'm hoping for SEO benefits of using hubpages, I never really expected I'd make cash from it. I was using ezinearticles.com and noticed hubpages placed really well in serps so figured I'd write here too. If I end up making cash that's awesome, if not its ok.

Very funny Hub, I definitely enjoyed reading it. I am sure with this hub alone you have made a lot more money. Although I am very new to all of this, I am hoping to be able to make around $1 within my first week, but we will see.

Cash is a bonus from using Hubpages, there are so many benefits other than that. I started using them for SEO mainly, now i see the many benefits.

After spending a hundred thousand dollars on a proper education, with an emphasis in creative writing, I've made back about twenty bucks so far. I guess I have a long way to go to break even. I think I'll frame my first payout check.
