How To Make Online Income From Home Writing With Hubpages

Updated on December 2, 2013

How Can I Start Making Money On Hubpages?

When I joined Hubpages and monetized with Google AdSense I was stunned when I did not see any money being made. I thought I was already a good writer. I was sadly mistaken. It took a while before I saw any money being made. I just knew my articles were good enough to draw attention. But that was before I knew about keywords. I had a lot to learn.

Those of you that are thinking about writing for the internet for the first time, I can only say that I wished someone wrote this type of article for me.

Once you learn the rules and know that the rules, you will be able to flow in your writing and begin creating hubs that bring you in residual income. Read the hubs that people leave comments on to see why they attract visitors.

Some have the ability to write everyday! That being said.There are people that have been writing for 10 years that never have to work again as well as those that have been writing for the same time without making a dime. Learning how to write good content will be your deal breaker to making money with Hubpages.

The Truth About How To Earn Money Online Income With Hubpages

The truth is there is a lot of work that has to be done if you want to earn money with Hubpages. It can take years before you can quit your job.

Some bloggers luck up and make substantial money within a year, however they took the time to learn the basics of writing for the search engines and producing great content.

More importantly they know that quality is better than quantity. Your article must have substance and bring value to your visitors. No ebook can help you do this. You have to make the decision to be the best you can be. Not implementing the information through practice will prevent you from moving forward.

What you need to write a great article on Hubpages

Hubpages has a great help forum to get you around your learning curve fast, but here are some great tips to having a great start.

  1. Persuasive Titles - You title must be attractive and make an offer, benefit or promise.
  2. Great Content - Each sentence must be meaningful and make your reader want to read the next line.
  3. Keywords - Keyword phrases in your titles and articles help your targeted readers find your information.
  4. Relevant Keywords links - Links should be keyword phrases leading to relevant blogs or websites.
  5. Write space - Having space between your paragraphs make your article more reader friendly. You may have great content but scare your readers away by not separating your paragraphs and thoughts.
  6. Bullet points - Bullet points and numbers make finding helpful information quicker for scanners.
  7. Photos - Relevant photos catch attention just like a great title if not first in some cases. The more the better.

It is not true about short and sweet content. You can not have a good article with under 500 words and you certainly can not have a great one under 700 words as an average. It can be pretty good. But being thorough will make people crave for more.

      Thanks for the article. I've only been on HubPages for 3 days and already have learned so much. Hopefully I'll be able to make money soon!

      Interesting news about Amazon and Ebay. This is a very good reason for fellow hubbers to have their own products as a buffer. There are so many people that don't realize that they can sell their own ebook full of their own talents. Growing plants, quieting a fussy child, shining old tools to turning there hubbys tee into night shirts. Thanks for your comment!

      You are right on, it does take time, patience and perserverence to earn online. Some are very fortunate indeed to earn quickly and quit day jobs. If you write from the heart that makes a huge difference. In my humble opinion people like to read what they know about or can relate too.

      Amazon and ebay take forever. IN fact in Colorado Amazon fired its affiliates over a year ago something to do with our state government and taxes???? Many states were fired from amazon It is difficult to get onto ebay as well. SO write great content and be sincere and helpful.

      Thanks for a great hub Hope you are finally earning. I have been here several years and made very little. It is looking hopeful one day I may make over $300 in a years time. JK, NOT! Happiest New Year ever to all.
