Make More Money From Hubpages

How To Make More Money From Hubpages

I recently published the Hub How To Make Money From Hubpages that went into detail about the 6 different ways that you can earn money from writing on the Hubpages platform and the best methods to use for each of the advertising affiliates.

Since publishing that Hub I have received a ton of emails from people who have recently joined Hubpages asking various questions regarding where the money I earn comes from, which type of hubs make the most money, and the most asked question of all why are my hubs not making money?

I write this article in response to the emails because if I were to answer each one individually it would take me a very long time and I would be repeating myself over and over again.

Jimmy's Payments from Google Adsense

Q1. How Much Does Jimmy Earn on Hubpages

A popular question I get from new Hubbers is How Much do you earn?

I am the first to admit that I am not amongst the top earners on Hubpages but I do recieve a regular monthly income from my writing on the site.

At the time of writing I am earning between $300-$400 every month from Hubpages and their affiliates.

Google is my top earner every month sending me out a check for approximately $200.

Ebay is next in line and my paypal account recieves around $50-$60 each month.

Amazon earns me approx $30-$40 a month

Kontera earns around $20-$30 each month

URL Trackers account for almost 30% of my total earnings from Hubpages.

Of course some months are better than others but the above are my average earnings from Hubpages.

Over the past couple of months I have not been very active on Hubpages and because of this I expected my earnings from the site to drop, to my surprise my earnings have remained approximateley at the same levels from each of the affiliated advertisers.

Writing For Money

If I Want To Earn What Should I Write About?

The Million Dollar Question is: What should I write about to make money?

There are a million topics to choose from and millions of websites out there on each topic, finding a niche topic to write about gets more and more difficult every day.

Instead of asking yourself What should I write about that will make me money?you should be asking, What do I know that I can write about?

It doesn't really matter which topic you choose to write about, it is the content of your article or hub that is most important, for example, if you decide to write an article about how to make money on the Internet, you will find millions of articles on the same topic on an internet search, if you click on a few of them you will find that most of them contain similar information worded slightly differently.

Unique Content

Writing the same information as everyone else has on a topic will get you nowhere fast, you have to try and look at your chosen subject from a different perspective, you have to write an article that stands out from the crowd, an article that is unique well written and well researched.

Earning a Regular Income From Hubpages

To earn a regular income from your writing on Hubpages rather than a quick Buck or two you have to think about people and their Internet surfing habits, at Christmas time, for example, people around the world search the Internet for topics related to the time of the year, therefore if you write mainly Christmas themed hubs your earnings from visitors will rise sharply but fall away after the festive season is over.

If you write a story about a hot item in the News, then you will maybe earn a few dollars for a few days until that story becomes a thing of the past as a new hot News Item takes precidence over yours.

The secret of writing success is finding a topic that people search for on a daily basis, for example, Topics such as pregnancy, money, sport, relationships, birthdays, clothes, how to guides, health, beauty and many other topics are always hot on the search engine top search lists.

Where is my Money?

Why Are My Hubs Not Making Any Money?

 I get this question almost on a daily basis from Hubbers who joined recently and the simple answer is Patience, to make money from your hubs you need to get visitors, to get visitors you need to get a good search engine ranking, to get a good search engine ranking you need to build up a reputation for good quality writing with Hubpages and the search engines, The more quality well written original Hubs that you write the more your reputation goes up and your hubs will get listed quicker on the search engines, I have seen some of my recent hubs at the top of Google search within 20 minutes of hitting the publish now button.

It can take a few months before you earn enough from your Hubs to recieve a payment from the advertisers 9 months is about average for regular Hubbers to recieve their first Google cheque.

When I joined Hubpages it took almost 3 months to get my first click on a Google ad, and I earned a grand total of 11 cents from that one click, after that first click I started getting clicks every day, and after a further 6 months I recieved my first cheque from adsense for $103.20 it took another 3 months till my next cheque to arrive for $122.48, every month since that second cheque I have recieved  a cheque from Google.

A little patience and writing hubs on a regular basis and you should soon see the money.


Keyword research and finding out which keywords are worth the most can be a complete waste of time and effort, Mesotheliomia is one of the highest paid keywords on the Internet, but because of this everyone and their grandpa's are writing useless information on the subject and the Internet is flooded with articles related to the topic, getting listed on the search engines for the term Mesotheliomia is almost impossible.

To make the most of Keywords you should write your article and then research keywords that are relevant to it.


The methods above work for me and I make a good regular income from Hubpages using them, this does not guarantee that the same methods will work for you.

      Hey Jimmy another great hub! Congratualations on your earning that's a nice chuck:)

      Also I like the keyword advice you gave right here - "To make the most of Keywords you should write your article and then research keywords that are relevant to it." That's the easiest way to do it!

      Great info - I have been here 3 months and so far earned about $8 from Google Adsense, a few Amazon referrals have been made but not converted and I was rejected by both eBay and Kontera ... but they don't seem to be the best earners anyway. For me Google Adsense has made a good start and I expect it to grow; Also trackers URLS are great and i'm slowly making more use and more sense of them. Thanks Jimmy.

      Thanks for all of the info. I have a handle on most of this just, can't find the time to write with a full time job and 3 busy young boys to take care of. But, it is slowly working out. I am wondering how the URL trackers work. IF you could add some info on them that would be awesome.

    • BristolBoy profile image

      BristolBoy 8 years ago from Bristol

      It is interesting to see just how much you make out of your trackers. I have set up a few, but at the present time have yet to get any signups. Hopefully I can get a few soon though as it seems to be a really good way of making additional money.

    • Peggy W profile image

      Peggy Woods 8 years ago from Houston, Texas

      Thanks for the hub. I guess patience helps if the object of writing is to make money. Getting accepted by Ebay. What does that take? I'm one of those that was rejected. So you will see no Ebay ads on my hubs.

    • mdvaldosta profile image

      Joe 8 years ago from Valdosta, GA

      Good stuff Jimmy, looks like you're doing pretty good. I'd really suggest to anyone that wants to make money on Hubpages (or any website) is to focus on wiriting very good, very specific hubs and then social bookmarking them and writing articles elsewhere to link back to your hub.

      I was wondering how people got paid. You did a good job describing the basics. I like reading the articles but noway have the time you need to make money doing this, I am focusing on something else. It would be interesting to write a short article and see how others respond.

      I have sent a friend who is a very good writer some e mails of the articles on the share button, to see if she would join and start writing but she never gets the e mails, do you know why?

      Another well put-together Hub! Anyone who takes the time to look at your collection of Hubs can see that you do work! There are so many 'teaser' articles and ads on the Internet that suggest it is possible to make money by doing nothing. (Of course it would be nice, but...)

    • samsmiles profile image

      samsmiles 8 years ago from Somerset UK


      the bit about 'keywords' is a revalation! 'keywords' have actually stopped me from writing articles because I was looking for 'keywords' and then writing crappy articles based on the 'keywords' instead of writing from my heart.

      I am now going to do what you suggest and write my first Hub! then I will find some 'keyword's to fit my article!

      Thanks again for your helpful hub

      Prosperity to us all

      charlemont 8 years ago from Lithuania

      Excellent hub, everything covered nicely.

      The forum contains a bunch of threads started by hubbers with a mere ONE hub asking "why I'm not earning hundreds $$$?" I'd say it takes several months of dedicated hubbing (mastering to compile nice hubs, think of headings, subtitles, etc) and SE promotion to see tangible results.

      But when the money starts rolling in, it's a pleasure to look at stats that seem to be independent of what I'm currently doing. Even if I don't log in to Hubpages for a week, it doesn't affect my earnings ;-)

      An interesting article.

      I tried a few hubs, but had no earnings so took my 14 years of writing experience elsewhere. Even though one of my hubs still draws thirty hits a day from Google search, there were never any 'clicks'. It is obviously to do with content, not number of hub-hits.

      You've found the right niche. Good luck with it.

      Great hub, it shows the diversity of hubbers and how they achieve success. I personally always do keyword research first and then find a topic that is related. If I advertize for Ebay or Amazon, I find products to fit my content. I like to see what the searchers are hungry for first, then I feed them with the right information. I do wish I had more time to devote to hubpages, but I do try to add at least one hub per month. I am a slow writer but it does pay off in the end. Good luck to all new hubbers and success to you.

      Hi Jimmy,

      A wonderful, informative Hub that is sure to encourage others. You've truly blazed a trail with your Hubs and helped others to see that hard work and effort pay off.

      Thanks Jimmy,

      The time frames you mentionI think are quite important. Many write a few hubs - wait a few weeks and...nothing. So they quite. If you are consistent - patient and original then things should work out.

      All good sense. I've been here two months and made a bit more than a dollar. Nothing from Amazon and Ebay. Not sure if I have the right niche but my writing here seems popular. One day I will fold my hubs into a book or three and seek a publisher or self publish.

      But yeah, it has to be a long haul thing. Once my writing makes enough to fund me and my research, the research will inspire my writing and I will get a virtuous loop.

      Hey Jimmy,

      A very informative and friendly Hub that is written so well, as if it is addressed individually for new beginners like me!

      I haven't done a good job but published one hub just to see what it is like...still struggling with how to go about the advertising stuff though, I think, I should be writing some good hubs rather than getting lost in here..from this info to that info...!

      Thanks for the interesting statistics. Do you remember approximately how many hubs you have written before you got your first $100 AdSense check?

      Good advice for the newbies but I heard in the forum that keyword research is essential for getting lot of search engine traffics. That means some sort of keyword research is needed to get success.

      Pretty good sir. Pretty good. I thank you for giving away some good information. The timeline is a real stress reliever. I'm glad that you mentioned patience also. Many new writers forget about this. It goes for hubpages as with blogs and websites.

      Great article.
