3 Unusual Ways to Make Money at HubPages

Updated on August 22, 2012

Hubs and You

Ways to Make Money at HubPages

When I joined HubPages, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of work involved in creating a hub. While I do enjoy writing, I struggled to understand the "capsules" and how to organize the text into a cohesive unit called a "hub". When I initially joined, I created my profile and then it sat idle for two months.

After encouragement to return to HubPages (return? I hadn't written one word yet!), I created my first hub. Thank-you PoshCoffeeCo and Marc Babineau for your encouragement for me to contribute to the HP community! This is my one hundredth hub and I am proud to reach this goal!

There are many ways to earn money at HubPages. While it is primarily a writing website, there are other ways to generate income on the site. I outline three ways here and tag them as "unusual" because they are unique to the website.

Learning Center

Read the Referral Trackers hub created by peoplepower73:

Referral Trackers, What are they and how are they used to earn money?

Invite New People to Join

Yes, you can make money at HubPages by referring new people to join the website!

Invite people into the supportive community at HP by sending out invitations by social media or by direct email. How does HubPages know to credit you as the referrer? Use a referral tracker, which is your unique identification code.

Your referral tracker is found by visiting My Account > Earnings > Referral Trackers. Your tracker is the "tracking token" or unique code in blue. Add the code into your URL when you send out electronic invites for new people to join the website.

For example, I can add my tracking token to the URL for the HubPages signup page, and share the link to get people to join the site. The default URL for the signup page is Here are the steps:

1. You find your token is 2densagor9X2 (example!).

2. You add the token to the sign-in URL by inserting backslash and underscore symbols. Here is what you get:

3. You send the invite to anyone interested in joining or share via social media networks and forums. Twitter is a great place to reach many people when you have several followers.

If someone signs up for HubPages within 30 days of referral, you will receive 10% of their hubs impressions. No time limit on the impressions! You can make money without even writing a hub. You just need your referral tracker, which was created when you first signed up for HP.

Share Hubs on Social Media Networks

Share Hubs of Other Hubbers

Another unusual way to make money is by sharing hubs written by OTHER writers. While you likely already post your own hubs on other websites, you are encouraged by HubPages to also share other hubbers' works.

When you share a link to a hub that contains your referral tracker, you make money if that link gets clicked within a limited time period. You also earn money if that person continues to read other hubs within that time.

You make money without writing a hub. Wow, now this is even more incentive to share the quality hubs that you read regularly! To get your unique code:

  • Users need to scroll down to the bottom of the hub, the very bottom.
  • Click "link to this page" to obtain the referral tracker; the code is embedded within a link.
  • Copy and paste the link to share the hub.

As well, if you enjoy a hub you read, press the "Share with followers" button at the right-hand side of the hub. Hubbers who see you share are likely to return the favour with your own hubs. In turn, your own hubs will likely receive more reads and generate more income for you. Here is another unusual way to make money at HubPages!

Like to Cook?

Post Recipes to Make Money

While I have not personally tried this method, there are several writers that share recipes as hubs. Recently, HubPages created Special Layout Options to add to hubs.

By adding these additional capsules, you are able to improve the success of your hub at standing out within search engine results. The capsules allow people searching for recipes that contain specific ingredients to find your hub easier.

If you love to cook and share recipes, the option of posting recipes is a great, unusual way to earn money!

The HubPages recipe-oriented capsules are:

  • Cook Time
  • Instructions
  • Ratings
  • Ingredients
  • Nutrition

Videos can now be added to hubs as well.

      Great tips. As you say, when you began it was overwhelming and this will help many newbies. It is a good reminder for those who have been around awhile too.

      Thanks to Grand Ol Lady for sharing this hub.

      I'll be sharing as well.

      #3 is where I'm hung up. I often think of sharing recipes but I don't have pictures. Without the images to capture a person's attention, the HUB would be no good, I fear. But I do #1 and #2.

      OOPS! Having read this I hit the "HubPagesFollowers" button on the right and immediately the text changed to "Shared With Followers." Sorry! I guess it would have been too early to 'share' as someone had already shared this just a while back. No sabotage intended. My apologies, :)

      Liz Elias

      Excellent information: thanks for the refresher course! I do a lot more sharing than I used to, and this article has reminded me to do more.

      I share both here and on my page on FaceBook (I created a special page to feature my own Hubs as a way of promoting them, but I also share others' Hubs there as well.)

      I have recently joined Pinterest, and have been also sharing via that site.

      The one thing that remains to do, is to really learn how to use the "sign up and write" feature--I think HP recently made some changes there, so (as I understand from a few forum posts), it's no longer as easy or even possibly frowned upon, to post such a link at the bottom of your own hubs.... as far as e-mail; I don't know anyone else who writes, save 2, and they already have a presence here....

      Voted up, interesting, useful and shared!

      I didn't know that sharing with the 'link to this page' earned you money like that. I thought it was simply a matter of people signing up through that link in order to earn money. Very interesting! I know this article was written a while ago, so is it still valid today or do you know?

Sometimes I feel I don't have what it takes, but then remember that it takes time and a lot of hard work. I think one of my favorite parts in writing hubs is doing the research and learning so much about the topic I'm writing about. Knowledge is everything! Thanks for this hub! Great info and very very encouraging! Voted up and ... yes.. shared (with my tracker#) *wink*♥

      I do use referral trackers when I share someone's hub in Twitter. Every so often I find a hub someone wrote that I know will be useful for friend. I use the referral tracker whenever I send the URL of someone else's hub in an email. I do this for the same reason that you mentioned in your hub. We actually make 10% of the ad revenue for any clicks. But that does not diminish 60% that the other Hubber is getting. The 10% comes from HP.

      I enjoyed reading your hub as I found it to be an excellent review of other ways to make money here. Voted up.

      Read this because I could not sleep. What a great hub and so glad I found it.

      I am very interested in Recipe Hubs, and will come back to try to better understand your advice. The information on linking hubs is brilliant - so I am sharing this.

      Congratulations on reaching such an impressive milestone. Good for you. Thanks for the "tips" as well. I'm afraid that I am one of those that has not used,and really did not understand, referral trackers. Your hub has helped and I will investigate further. Thanks again.
