    Is it possible to make more than $2,000 monthly on Hubpages?

      Possible yes. Likely? It will take a very long time to reach that goal if you are only using Hubpages.  Most people that earn well online have several streams of income.

        That's a good idea-- just give a good old try and tell us if it's possible.
        I believe it is, but I haven't really tried that much.

      $2,000 a month, I doubt it very much.
      $2,000 a year - Yes. smile

    This is the part where a ficticious character with 0 hubs as well comes to say: why yes, of course not only with hubpages, but if you use this wonderful SEO product you'll manage in 3 months incredible results! Check it out - (insert spammy link to crappy product here)

    It's such a coincidence. Someone was posting over the weekend how they make more than $2,000 a month online and were thinking of joining Hubpages. I guess $2,000 is the new hot income number...such a coincidence that the same number was used...

      UW, that was 2000$/week which make more than $8000/month so a big difference.

      To answer the OP's question: Yes it is possible, but don't quit your day job to work on HP. First aim for $200/month and once you reach there, you can aim for 1000 and then 2000. Aiming for something that high will get you frustrated. You need to learn a lot before you make that much.

    Personally? I'm sure it is possible. Probable? Not so much.

    This is Doc Rehab's bio: "Hi! I am Doc Rehab and I am a drug rehabilitation professional giving away free and unbiased advices to help you have a totally recovery from drug addiction."

    Hmmm. Didn't we have a pretend doctor on here just a few days ago, who was also giving out "advices" until his credentials were challenged?

      Doesn't matter. Let her advice be judged based upon her hubs (yet to come, probably) rather than rumor or assumptions.

    If you can make 1$ you can make $1000 but its going to take work, time, patience and a willingness to learn everything you can smile. I hope to make that sort of money eventually but for now I am happy to earn something. I have tried a lot of different get rich schemes and its never as quick or easy as it says on the box. Thats the thing about HP, it's not 'sold' as a get rich scheme and people keep it real here so you know that the advice given is worth listening to. I am sure that when I have been here like 5 years and have 1,000 to 10,000 hubs I will make enough to be very happy but thats a long term goal. My short term goal is to get 100 hubs up and increase amazon sales to a daily thing. Goals are great but be sure to have fun writing here too!

      Seriously this is the best thing I have found! I have been told write an ebook and you will make loads, went and wrote an ebook and guess what?! I did not make loads, just about covered the cost of adwords! tongue

        I definitely think $2K per month is doable. But it's a job and you have to apply yourself to it. I've come to think that a huge part of it is thinking like a marketer. People go on about the keyword research and tools but the really successful people seem to write well and have their finger on the pulse, plus bring marketing smarts to the table.

        Well done on the ebook!

          kirstenblogposted 13 years agoin reply to this

          I am very proud of my ebook even tho it didn't make much money. I have had only 1 refund and I think it was a case that the person didn't really get what an ebook is, they were on a computer that was not theirs and were panicking about it being downloaded to that computer. I was happy to refund and was glad that it was for an innocent reason, not because my ebook sucked! lol

          Funny thing is I have given away the ebook almost as many times as I have sold it, my market is not a market with lots of money or even credit cards! A lot of teens email saying that cannot buy but wish they could so I send em the download link and I almost always make a sale with someone else when I give it free to someone else.

  13. Daniel Hicks profile image60
    Daniel Hicksposted 13 years ago

    I like to think so. But it will take an approach that combines cranking out a lot of quality hubs with attention to the keywords that have value, and continual backlink building to gain organic traffic. I think also a significant portion should be devoted to product pages so that it is a mix of Affiliate + Google.

    It is an impossible task and so it is used as an advertisement caption to attract people to purchase spammy products.

      If you've published over 4,000 Hubs and aren't earning $2,000 a month, you have to ask yourself whether you're doing something wrong.  I've been here two years, too - based on what my 90 Hubs are earning, if I had 4,000 Hubs like you, I'd be cashing out at least $5,000 a month.

      It's really clear why you aren't earning,

      The below quote is from shinujohn's hub on post-pregnancy pelvic exercises:

      "Hill says the beforehand females alpha the bigger it is All who accept had accouchement should do approved pelvic attic beef contest"

      Pelvic attic beef contests just aren't a high-paying niche....

    I think the internet is so liberating for writers. When there was only print, getting something published and out to a readership was expensive and required getting through layers of editorial approval. Now we can just go direct to our market. It's fantastic.

    Something I found funny and thought I could share here, I wrote a freebie ebook for people who visited my sales page and gave an email to send it to. I,  awhile back decided to search for my name just to see what comes up. I found my freebie ebook posted in a forum with praise and credit to me! It was a 101 cheep or free fun things to do, written for everyone but most specifically people who struggle with depression and have little money. It was posted to a site for people who self harm as advice for stuff to do instead of self harming. I was totally amazed and really proud! big_smile

    I'm planning on making $2,000 a month on HubPages by March, which would be my one year anniversary here. It's just a matter of finding the right monetization pattern and creating sufficient content and Hubs. The search engine traffic is too good here, not to make a lot of money. People here really underestimate the financial possibility on HubPages, and I've never understood why.

    If you want to make money you have to write about products and services that people want to buy online.

    If you don't then you won't make money.

    Most people just write... and that's okay, but it's not the way to make money.

    Before you start a hub you should research the potential for traffic and for profit from the items you sell.

    It's all how you approach it... the dollar target is irrelevant.

    I found a hub yesterday while researching an automotive products that is very tightly defined.  The hub is ranking number #1 in Google for a search term that gets 5,000 searches a month.

    With a clickthrough rate of 2% via adsense that should score 50-100 clicks per month.  In that niche I would not be surprised if the clicks paid $1 each.  I have clicks that are in this range, and sometimes exceed $5 a click.

    Now if you can replicate these types of niches you can make real money.

    That's good advice - though $2K is my mental target too. I like having a target... $2K is a meaningful number for me. Weird how it seems to be everyone;s magic number.

    Recently I've been thinking that it's not enough to analyse the google keywords - you need to be on trend or pref in front of it and get your stuff out there before people start searching (ESP style wink ).

    I think the marketing has to go back into e-marketing.

    From the short period of time I have been here and what I know about marketing I think it is very posible to make that kind of money using Hubpages.

    Of course if I come here and put up a few hubs and walk away I probably wont make any money.

    In fact i think 2000 is a great goal for myself.  I dont know if I can do it with exclusively wrestling hubs so I may need to mix things up a bit but for now I think I will focus on the wrestling ones and see what happens.

    Just to add my $0.02    ...I still make the majority of my income from my blogs outside of hubpages and am not anywhere near $2000 a month.  That level of income will take some serious dedication and article writing, but yes, it can be done.
