Make Money From Writing Blogs

I know it all seems a little too good to be true but yeah you can actually make money from doing the same kind of ranting on whatever it is that float’s your boat, that you generally do to anyone who’ll listen, the difference if you can do it in a blog and get paid for it and theres a very serious prospect of turning it into a full time income. Imagine sticking two fingers up to your boss to write about the things you enjoy, or if you actually like your boss; then it can simply help to go towards an extra holiday or two a year.

Who pays me?

You get your money from the ads at the side of your blogs, some of these ads are placed there by the blog site itself (Hubpages) and some are placed by Google Adsense.

Hubpages takes 40% of the income from Ads and you take 60%.... THAT is what they get for it. Everybody wins.

I Don’t know what to write about!

Anything! Write about absolutely anything. If its interesting to you, you can ensure that it will be of interest to at least 1 person in this vast world of ours. Write about anything from Your favorite band, your Sports team, Your poems, Opinions on current issues, technical help and advice, lifestyle advice, economy tips… anything literally anything!. There is at least 1 hub and story in every single person.

Do I need to keep writing to earn money?

No, technically you could just write 1 good article and leave it and get paid money for the hits from people reading it, every month without having to do anything with it but if you do continue to write new articles, the more likely you will be to earn more.

Proof that it works

Right now, everyones a little skeptical about… well everything! And rightly so, there is a lot of things on the internet that are a con, a scam or even viruses. So here are stats from my account which hopefully should reassure anyone of the sites legitimacy.

How Do I Get Paid?

Once you reach the $50 threshold, which should'nt be too difficult to do, then you will automatically get paid by Paypal.

Who Will Read My Blog's?

Your Blogs will display in Search Engine results such as Google, the more viewers it gets and providing it has good content, you can get your Blog on the top of the search engines (i.e the first thing that comes up when people search for your subject area on google).


You can also share your blogs with your friends on Facebook, Your followers on Twitter and many other social media sites.

You will also find that you get a significant amount of people from the Hubpages blog site itself that view your work and the more contact and links you create around the blogging community, the greater amounts of exposure your blogs will get.

If you write a particularly good Hub/Blog, then you may get consideration for the 'Hub of the day', which gives your Article the opportunity to be viewed by the millions of people who use Hubpages everyday.


Trending Subjects

It can be a good strategy to write about a subject or issue that is currently trending (A lot of people are talking about). If your lucky you may find that people are beginning to shares your blogs without you asking and your retweeting you to millions.


Here is an example of how one of my Hubs trended.

77 People shared it on Facebook


26 People Tweeted it on Twitter


and 3 people Pinned it on Pin Interest

It received 2592 hits in 24 hours

a staggering 92,556 people viewed it as part of a slideshow (Possibly on Google images), in a 24 hour period.

"I'll Take a Look at it Another Time"

You may aswell signup and getting writing immediately, afterall every day that you waste is an extra day that your blogs could be online, drawing in views and money from the adviews on the sides of the page.

Getting your first Hub/Blog out of the way is the hardest part, i remember somebody showing me this site and i just thought hmmph, couldnt get the motivation to write one but once you get your first one published and work your way round a new site, then you'll be writing constantly.


SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? JOIN UP AND GET WRITING IMMEDIATELY

@ mmsu Payback thing? not sure what you mean

@ Juninho93 ha ah no i wish, the $210 is roughly 3 months worth

juninho93 4 years ago from Faro

Hum... But it's also good.

Good work and keep doing your stuff ;)

Thanks Juninho! Keep up writing, it may take a few weeks to properly get going but hopefully you can see the benefits of it

I mean about the reversal thing.It is in your hub that beware that your payment can be reversed.Can you explain that,as in why and when it happens?


CCahill profile image

CCahill 4 years ago from England Author

Ah thats part of the Paypal terms, they are just warning that anybody who sends you ANYTHING by Paypal can be reversable, its nothing specifically related to Hubpages, i imagine it says the same on every transaction

Thank you, man! :)

I just have 1 doubt: You have 90 hubs nowadays and you earn $210 in 3 months. If you keep writing, Can you earn less money in the next month, for example?


CCahill profile image

CCahill 4 years ago from England Author

i earnt around $15 first month active

$55 second month

$92 third month

and yes i am set to earn less this month, alot of my Hubs expired because they were based on the Euro 2012 which is no longer interesting to people

So im heading for probably $55 again this month

juninho93 4 years ago from Faro

Hum.. I see.. Everything revolves around the visits to your hubs, right? :S


CCahill profile image

CCahill 4 years ago from England Author

Pretty much, you can also earn income from placing Ebay and Amazon links/capsules on your Hubs.

Another way to make money is to refer people to other peoples Hubs

"Another way to make money is to refer people to other peoples Hubs"

Really?? I didn't know that xD

How they pay me for that? :o


CCahill profile image

CCahill 4 years ago from England Author

you get around 10% of the money they get for the views of the Adverts based on their Hub.

Basically if you bring 100 people to my Hub, then you in theory get the credit for around 10 of those people yourself and i get 100 also.... you might think 'hang on that makes 110%' but the 10% cut comes from Hubpages own part of the profit from the ads at the side of the page.

So yeah you COULD make money by sharing popular Hubs around on Social media sites, if you shared a Hub and it got tweeted and retweeted and shared and reshared constantly around Facebook than you could end up bringing thousands of people to a hub in a single day, this is usually evident with trending news, i had 4000 views to just one hub in one day and 92,000 slideshow views because people kept tweeting my hub all around twitter and facebook.

juninho93 4 years ago from Faro

Wow... That's nice.

Ahahaha! I'm going to share your hubs for everyone! xD

Oh, I'm sorry, but I have one more question: how do I know how much money I already have, for example?


CCahill profile image

CCahill 4 years ago from England Author

Thank you ;)

Ah right... very good question, well if you click on;

Your username (Juninho93) at the top

then...

My Account

It says "Hubpages Earnings Program ... $..." in blue text

#######

If it doesnt say this, you may need to signup for the Hubpages Ad Scheme....

to do this;

Click the 'Earnings' tab on the top of the 'My Account' page

See 'Hubpages Earnings Program Settings'

Click Configure

Only once the Ad program is setup will you start to get money for your Hubs

juninho93 4 years ago from Faro

Oh, yes, yes, I see. I clicked to configure but they didn't accept my application yet. They sent me the reason why:

"Insufficient content: To be considered for AdSense, your site must contain enough text content for our specialists to review and for our crawlers to identify relevant ads to show on your pages. We recommend including more complete sentences and paragraphs on your site. We require websites to be fully launched and functioning, allowing users to navigate throughout your site with a menu, sitemap, or appropriate links. Once the majority of your site is complete and functional, we'll be happy to reconsider your application."

Aaaah yeah, i've heard somebody else have this problem, they never used to be fussy when i first joined.

I guess you will just have to write a few more Hubs first and make sure the grammar is good on them and they have a lot of original content within them.

Its very important to get that Hubpages Ad Program set up, the Google Adsense one isnt as important, i've only really gotten like $10 from that ever, The ebay and Amazon scheme should auto accept you unless they have gotten fussy since also.

juninho93 4 years ago from Faro

Hum... I will write more hubs and I will try again later ;)

Thank you so much for your help, man :D

@ Cheers IOwn, i hope it will encourage more people to join Hubpages

@Faisal really!? i haven't heard anything about it, i'd be pleasantly suprised though, surely Hubpages are still getting their cut, otherwise whats in it for them?

@MrAhmad cheers for reading.
