How not to make money at Hubpages

Updated on June 13, 2012

It seems as if I've been here at HubPages for a year now. Not too shabby that I've made it this far and I can still come up with the occasional hub. As I've not earned very much over this past year I thought I'd give you a list of things that you can do to be sure you do not earn any money at HubPages. This is not a comprehensive list, however, if you do even just a few of these things, I am more than certain that you will succeed in not earning very much money at all.

  1. Do not create a Google Adsense account. Having one of these gives you some potential income that likely you do not want, considering you are reading this hub. I have a Google Adsense account, but fortunately for me, I don't get any revenue from it.
  2. Create hubs about topics that concern practically no one. I believe I have cornered this market in writing inane hubs, however, it is quite possible that you can come up with some hub ideas that have no marketing value whatsoever. Just off the top of my head I can come up with a few ideas: "How I Walk", "My Favourite Colour of Sock", "In Praise of Dandelions" and so on
  3. Do not tell anyone that you are hubbing. This is a sure way to generate extremely little traffic. You may occasionally get the odd hub hopper, but apart from that your traffic will be abysmal. I would especially recommend here that you do not mention your hubs on FB or twitter. If you have a blog with a constant readership of three people or less, feel free to mention one out of every thirteen hubs you post on your blog. I think that amount of traffic will be tolerable in terms of low to no income generation.
  4. Have an inordinate amount of spelling errors in your hub that are not spelling errors. This will be sure to turn some readers off. Four example, they're are two many mistakes too mention, and so there pet dog eight to of them.
  5. Post only one hub every three or five months. If you post more frequently than that, you may develop a following of people keen to read your hubs.
  6. Read the hubs of other people only when there is a full moon. You'll leave more succinct comments on those days and it will prohibit you from commenting on so regular an interval that people will come to expect it.

With these tips I should hope that you find success in not earning any money with Hub Pages. Please feel free to participate in the poll I've prepared below, or don't if you feel there is a risk that doing so would cause you to earn some money.

How do you feel about earning money at hubpages?

      Pam - probably it would help if you tried to make money through your hubs, rather than threw them.

      TT , It seems your goal is to earn some money, if that is the case then yes, please do the opposite of what I suggest.

      Audrey, as succinct as necessary.

      snoblet, thank you for stopping by; you seem to have exceeded even my goal if you've had to give up house and family. I was merely indicating not how to earn, you have gone to the next step on 'how to lose'. Maybe you ought to hub about how you did it.

      I think I have mastered the art of not earning anything, its quite a challenge but its one that is most fun to do. Money is overrated and we need to fight the power. But I ended up giving up my family and house and still seem short. lol great hub for a good laugh, thank you so much for this. Thumbs up :)

      Melovy, I really hope that you manage to earn as little as possible, if that is what you are after. I get more adsense revenue from my twelve year old defunct website than I do from hubpages, so I'm not so sure that following rule #1 is sufficient.

      Fun hub. Useful tips to avoid earning money. Though I think if you follow Number 1, you don't need to bother with the rest. Oh dear, I'm breaking rule number because this comment can no longer count as succinct. Oh no, oh no, does that mean I might earn some horrible cash?

    • Phil Plasma profile imageAUTHOR

      Phil Plasma 

      6 years ago from Montreal, Quebec

      Well, I verbally (literally?) prohibit anyone who comes here to click on any ads so as to ensure that I earn as little as possible. That this hub has generated as many visits as it has is a good offset to how little all of the rest of my hubs get, giving me still, a net average of very little income. Thanks for stopping by!

      Brett; I got into hubpages because I love to write and thought, if I can earn a little while at it, why not? That I've earned very little is really of no consequence to me. Thanks for stopping by!

      barbergirl; Thanks, indeed, reverse psychology works well with my kids, so why not in hub? As for the full moon, no worries, I've been guilty of breaking this one lately too.

      becky; Welcome to hubpages, thanks for stopping by!

      nanderson; astute observation revealing my ulterior motive; please don't tell anyone.

      Rosyel; I hope others will benefit too, if their goal is to earn as little as possible. Thanks for stopping by!

      wheel; thanks for sharing! I do not tend to revise very much, I usually do my best at the time of writing and then leave it as is. As for the referral tracker, indeed this should have been an additional level of activity one should absolutely not do.

      Mazzy; have you written any inane hubs? I enjoy very much the writing of inane hubs; I'm just not convinced that anyone enjoys reading them as much as I enjoy writing them. Thanks for stopping by!

      Victoria; I would only recommend you spreading the word if you wanted to earn some revenue.

      Cyndi; I hope it didn't hurt you to read this. When I hit my funny bone it is usually quite uncomfortable. Thanks for the vote and thanks for stopping by!

      You hit the funny bone here. What a talent for writing funny "dribble." This is true dribble, however. Hubbers have a choice with these options explained very clearly. They definitely should bookmark your article if they're not interested in the money even a little.

      Voted funny.

      Back again.

      If you don't want to earn, say no to AdSense and never use your referral tracker.

      Don't forget if you don't want to earn from hub pages never share your work or the work of others with your referral tracker attached.

      This mistake might cost you your reputation as a non earner.

      As a writer I write about what I know. If I earn from the hubs great if not I have done what I loved and had fun doing it. When I first started hub pages I had another article waiting to be published. The week was the longest wait not knowing if what was written had enough value to be published.

      One of my subjects takes constant revision. This hub has been revised five times in the past six months. If you don't want to make money this type is what I recommend. The amazing thing is it sits in the number one slot in my back office sleeping. I have a link on one of my websites which is hit occasionally. If you don't want to make money don't link.

      Voted up, funny and sharing in my facebook group.

      A fun hub, although I have to confess I misread the title at first. I got into hub pages more as a hobby, but now I'm starting to see earnings, the SEO side of things has become a lot more interesting. While I wouldn't stop if I didn't earn, the extra money is certainly welcome and I fully intend to continue to write about what interests me, not only what pays.

      Up, funny, sharing and pinning.

      I've just noticed that quite a number of my hubs have that ZzZ status. I supposed if I really cared about it might do something to correct for that.

      I saw the most incredible harvest moon a few nights ago, but no, not a full moon tonight.

      "1.Do not create a Google Adsense account." - This has been my tactic from when I first joined this website, almost three years ago.

      "Four example, they're are two many mistakes too mention, and so there pet dog eight to of them." LOL I gotta say - such writing will certainly get people running away ... might get a few stoned kids sticking around to laugh at it but that would probably be it.

      "5.Post only one hub every three or five months. If you post more frequently than that, you may develop a following of people keen to read your hubs." - I see ... this is where I went wrong - I started posting more than one hub every few months ...

      Fun read. Thanks for the tips. In case I ever earn a penny here on Hub-pages, I'll come back and re-read this hub.

      interesting ideas, but I'm sure when I read many hubs they have only one intention. Some write about things that have neither expereienced or know anything about other than what they have read about on wikipedia. I'm happy enough with the nice comments I get.

      What a great Hub, very, very funny and quite clever. I am so tired, bored to tears really, of the constant hubs claiming they know how to increase our earnings. Enough already!

      If I wanted to spend all my time and energy doing boring, mindless, repetitive, non-creative things to try and increase my income, I would just go get a desk job somewhere!

      Wait, I have a desk/day job. However, HubPages is my creative outlet, what I do for me. HP is where I can read and write whatever I want and engage in great conversations and discussions with like-minded people.

      Why would I want to destroy that by turning it into an obligation with the drudgery of a regular job? I don't want to. :) Absolutely great Hub. I fervently hope you make no money off of it whatsoever. :)

      I am SHARING this, but not so you will make money.
