How To Make Money Online Using Google Adsense On Hubpages

Updated on December 4, 2011

Publish Content on Hubpages and Earn Money

If you are looking to make money online, you have come to the right place. Hubpages is a website that shares advertising revenue for high-quality content where registered users like you can write your own hubs for free. So where does the advertising revenue come from? Google Adsense. Adsense is a contextual advertising program by Google which generates revenue on a per-click or per-impression basis. This article will show you how to make money with Google Adsense on Hubpages...

First, you will need to register for a free account at Hubpages. Once you have published a few quality hubs, go ahead and apply for a Google Adsense account. If you already own a website or blog, it makes the approval process much simpler. No website or blog? No worries! Try Google's Blogger, it's free and easy to use or you can start here simply by submitting your original content on Hubpages!

I have had accounts with Hubpages and Google Adsense for the past year and I don't claim to know everyting there is to know, but I would like to share with you what I do know and what I have learned in the last several months.

How To Make Money Online Using Google Adsense

Monetize: Once approved by Google Adsense, they will assign you with a publisher ID. Go to your Hubpages Account and click on Affiliate Settings. You will see the following websites, Google, Amazon, eBay, Kontera, and Analytics. If you are affiliated with any of these sites, you can copy and paste your Affiliate Code into each box to link them to your Hubpages Account. You can even become a Hubpages Affiliate and earn money for referring writers.

How To Set Up Your Hubs With Google Adsense

Your first paragraph in your hub should include a minimum of 150 words in the first module. Be sure not to insert any images directly beside the first text module because you want Google Adsense to display their ads. Photo galleries will not attract clicks, good quality text will attract clicks. You can trick your viewers with adsense ads by changing the size, colors, text and fonts to blend them in with your text. I have found a certain pattern for which you could list your modules for maximum earning potential:

  1. Text
  2. Photo
  3. Text
  4. Photo
  5. Amazon
  6. Text
  7. Photo or Video
  8. Text or Amazon
  9. Links

Then add your News Feed and RSS Feed module at the bottom of your hub if desired.

How To Write Good Quality Content With Keywords

Keywords: What are they? Words that are used to reveal the structure of the author's reasoning. Writing hubs with keywords are essential. Start building keyword-rich pages containing well researched, profitable keywords, and get lots of high quality links and traffic to your articles. For example, if your hub is about topics such as web hosting, you will earn much more per click than if it’s about free things. But if you research top-paying keywords only, that means you will have a lot more competition. You want keywords that are high in demand and low in supply. Some topics earn more than others. Topics such as finance, beauty and fitness, product reviews, and how to articles go great with adsense ads. You must write exceptional content with keywords to tell the adsense engine what your hub is related to. Some ads will earn you 20 cents a click, while others may earn 2.00 a click. So knowing the price of the adsense keyword will maximize your earnings. Search Google Adwords to know the rough cost of a keyword. Or if you want to know how popular a keyword is, use Google Trends or Always choose your title wisely with competitive keywords. Also use Google Keyword Research to pick a topic with a large number of searches online. Try throwing in a few keyword phrases used by advertisers in Search Engine Optimization (SEO) or combined keywords your visitors are searching to find information.

I Want Traffic, That's What I Want!

Word of Mouth: Spread the word! Share your Hubpages links with friends and family via email. They may be interested in reading your material. Each time they view your hub, you gain one more page view.

Social Bookmarking: What is it? It's whereInternet users can go to organize, store, manage, and search bookmarks. Users can save links to web pages that they want to remember or share. Submit your hubs to popular social bookmarking sites such as Digg, Delicious, Reddit, and StumbleUpon- just to name a few.

Backlinking: What is it? It is when you create a link back to your website or web page. You can do this by searching high ranking blogs, forums, and articles online that are related to your hub topic. Leave comments with the url included. By doing this, you will get additional revenue and drive more traffic to Hubpages, making your Page Rank (PR) higher. Monetize your links by submitting them to revenue sharing programs like SheToldMe, Xomba, RedGage, YouSayToo, Snipsly, DoFollowDigg, and TipDrop. You could earn 5-10 extra dollars a week from each of these websites alone, thanks to Google Adsense.

Social Networking: Add your Hubpages feeds in your blog, website, or social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr to drive more traffic fast and efficiently.

How Much Can I Earn On Hubpages?

It is possible to make over $100 a month in Adsense revenue from the hubs that you publish. You can find several articles on all kinds of subjects that are easy to write, and put them on Hubpages. Average hubs are around 400 words or above, while others are quite a bit longer. Maybe $100 a month may not sound like much, but hey, it's a numbers game. The more quality hubs you publish, the more earning potential you will get using Google Adsense. Quality over quantity. Continue writing hubs and whenever you have an idea, jot it down. Set a goal for yourself, be realistic, and you too will start making money online with Google Adsense.

      This was a very useful article. I particularly thought the tip about not putting a picture next to the introductory text was interesting. I usually do it because I find it aesthetically pleasing, but, I like money, so, we'll see what happens.

      Nice article. I just set-up my Adsense account on here. I applied through my Blogspot account (accidentally) instead of Hubpages and I was accepted with just one article (and an account two years old - I deleted my old blog) in less than a day.
