How I have Progressed on Hubpages-I am on my 50th Hub

Updated on October 3, 2011

Its been a long road on Hubpages. I am now on my 50th hub.I started on hubpages about sixteen months ago. It hasnt been easy trying to think of things to write about. At times I would go months without writting anything. Hubpages can be a good way to make money online but it takes a long time and a lot of work to make money. Most of my writtings are personal stories and people must like them because I do have 356 followers at this point. I do not know anything about SEO as many people talk about in the forums. I just keep writting and I do ping my hubs right after they are published.

A couple of times I did try entering the 30 hubs in 30 days challange but too many life occurences or writers block would stop that, so I just keep going when I can. So far i have reached my $100 payout and I am up to another $30. Some days I can go on and on, (like today), I am working on my 3rd hub and other days I make posts in the forums to have other people help me on topics to write about.

There are so many people who I admire on hubpages such as Misha, kimberlyslyrics, Lisa HW, Cagsil, habee and so many others. (One day i will figure out how Misha makes so much money with so few hubs), but Misha is one exception here on hubpages, usually it takes alot of hubs to make alot of money. If you are new and havn't met Misha yet you will if you are in the forums. Being in the forums helps your score and brings you more traffic.

With every hub I do use products from amazon. I have not been too successful with Amazon, so far I have made $10, but everything little bit helps and eventually I am sure this income with also start climbing as I learn more on amazon.

 Notice the traffic dropping when i wasnt publishing any hubs.

This concludes my 50th hub. Hope you all enjoyed. Thanks to Dosters for the idea. Now i must keep writting....I have this saying that keeps repeating in my head. The nurse practioner in Pittsburg actually kept saying it everytime I was there. "JUST KEEP GOING".........

      WOW! Great job on getting your first payout. I am still working towards that but I know it's going to happen! There is a lot to learn and I don't really do the SEO thing, I just write what I'm inspired to write. Congrats on your 50th!

      voted up & useful! Congrats on your 50th- and receiving a payout. I'm a newbie I guess, just been writing 4 months and have 30 or so hubs. Have made nothing, monetarily but have lots of friends that read about my life experiences when I was a little boy. Wish you much success as you continue of your Hub journey...
