How to Increase HubPage Income by Cultivating Your Hubs

Updated on July 3, 2012

Yes, You Can Make Money on HubPages

April 16, 2009

One of the major attractions of HubPages is the opportunity to make money by writing and publishing articles on HubPages.

Many writers who are new to HubPages as well as some not so new ones often get discouraged when their Google AdSense and other affiliate earnings remain low. Frequent questions that one sees in the Forums, in comments on Hubs, in Hubs by newbies and even in emails sent to some of us who publish frequently are

Can a person really make money on HubPages? and,

How can a person make money on HubPages?

The answer to the first question is Yes. I will also point out that, while there are others who make considerably more than me, that I have received a deposit to my checking account from Google every month except for one from January 2007 to the present.

My Earnings Experience

I began writing for HubPages in late September 2006 and by the end December 2006 had surpassed the magic $100 point which Google requires before disbursing funds.

Since my AdSense earnings for August 2007 came to $99 and seventy some cents, I missed the $100 mark by a few cents that month and had to wait until October 2007 when my combined August and September earnings came to a little over $200 and Google paid me.

In 2008 I managed to push my average AdSense earnings to over $200 per month and in March of 2009 hit $300 per month in earnings.

As to the second question, the three, very broad, answers are:

1 Write and publish regularly - the more Hubs you have the more opportunities people have to click on your ads.

2 Write things people want to read

3 Look upon your HubPage writing as a business from which you expect to make a profit. By all means write about things that interest you and which you are passionate about but, at the same time monitor the comments, the number of visitors, ad revenue generated and other statistics provided by HubPages and Google to determine which types of articles generate the most revenue and write more articles of those types.

A Good Hub Can Generate Revenue for a Long Time

One of the great things about writing is that, once written, a piece of work has the potential to continue generating revenue for you well into the future. Of course at least two things are needed to achieve this:

1 You must retain the intellectual property rights to the piece.

2 Second, it must both be available to the public to read/view as well as be of interest to people beyond the present.

I was first attracted to HubPages because they not only let all of their authors keep the intellectual property rights in their work but also allowed their authors work to remain available on HubPages for the public to read/view as long as the author wants to keep the article on the site.

However, keeping the rights and keeping the article available to the public does not guarantee that it will make money as the public tends to be attracted to works that are relevant and interesting. With that in mind, I have made an effort to craft all of my Hubs in a manner that will keep them relevant and interesting long after I have written them. My friend and fellow Hubber, Jimmy the Jock, has commented in some of his Hubs that Hubs written on a hot current events topic generate a lot of immediate traffic but that traffic drops quickly to near zero after a few days.

While I have a couple of Hubs, Yahoo Time Capsule Update and Search Continues for Madeleine McCann, that were strictly current events, I have tried in most of my other current events Hubs to make the Hub's content broader than the topic at hand. Thus, in my Hub, written in response to the request, What Do You Think of the Head of the IRS being Someone Who Hasn't Paid His Taxes? I kept then Obama Administration Treasury Secretary Designate Timothy Geitner and his tax problems as the central focus but broadened the theme to include a discussion of the larger and ongoing problem of tax and other laws that are so extensive and complex that even the person nominated to oversee the enforcement of the tax laws could make mistakes.

Manage Your Hubs Like a Vineyard and Keep them Producing Revenue Year in and Year out


Create Evergreen Content

Paul Edmonson's Hub entitled Evergreen Content - Make Content that Lasts provides excellent advice on how to select topics and craft your Hubs so that they will have long lasting appeal. By writing on topics that have lasting appeal or crafting other topics in a way that gives them lasting appeal, I have been quite successful despite the fact that I have only published 389 Hubs in the 31 months that have elapsed since I joined HubPages in September of 2006.

In addition to publishing what Paul Edmonson refers to as Evergreen Content, I have discovered that I can boost my earnings by continually tweaking my previously published Hubs. This, of course is not a substitute for writing and publishing new Hubs but, like the owner of a vineyard who keeps increasing his output by a combination of continually pruning and caring for the existing vines as well as expanding his acreage with new vines, I can continue to work the existing content for revenue growth as well as producing new content.

HubPages is not only one of the few sites of this nature that allows its writers to continually refresh their existing content (this alone is reason enough to join and write for HubPages) but they also continually provide new tools for our pages. This means that we can upgrade previously published Hubs simply by adding new tools as they come out without ever having to change content.

Make Use of New Hub Tools

However, adding new tools, such as News, Polls, RSS feeds, video, Categories and Slideshows (except for Categories and Slideshows which are relatively new as of this writing, the other items cited, while standard for a long time, are new since I first joined in 2006) as they come out. As I understand it, updates to existing Hubs, tend to attract new interest by search engines which causes them to move up in the listings. And moving up in the listings can attract new traffic, which causes a further upward bump in the listings and if some of the new traffic leaves new comments this action, again, pushes the article up further in the listings. Here are a few tips I have gleaned from using these tools:

Categories - Categories were added earlier this year and are a new tool to help classify Hubs by topic and sub-topic (the sub-topics can be three or four deep). As I understand it, people visiting HubPages looking for specific topics will be able to find your Hubs on those topics if you have your Hubs categorized properly. I think categories will also help Google target ads better thus increasing the chances that people will click on the ads for us.

Slideshows - Slideshows are another feature that was added earlier this year. If you have five or more photos on a Hub you can opt to allow the reader to click on a button on the first photo and view all of your photos in a slide show format. This allows the viewer to view each photo individually and in consecutive order without having to scroll through the entire Hub. Ads appear next to each photo in the slide show so you do not lose revenue opportunities. Shailini in her Hub entitled How to get 150,000 visitors in 150 days or less: 10 Easy-to-follow Hubpages Tricks makes the observation that people like photographs and will visit sites with lots of pictures. The slide show feature makes it easy for people who are mainly interested in the pictures to view them easily. You can add a slide show by first making sure you have 5 or more photos (add more if you need to get the number up) and then clicking on the Edit button and clicking and adding a check mark in the box next to the line that reads

Photos Link to a slideshow of the photos in this hub?

(on new Hubs this box is checked by default). I have added this feature to many of my older hubs (sometimes adding additional photos as well) and, from my HubPage statistics numbers, it seems to be quite popular.

News - News capsules allow you to provide relevant key words in the news capsule that will cause it to find current news articles on the same topic as your Hub and provide a summary and link to the article thereby providing your reader with additional information. The news capsule will update the article list as new relevant articles appear and these automatic updates to your News capsule have the same effect on search engines as you updating your Hub.

Polls - Polls allow your readers to interact with your Hub. Polls can be used to encourage the reader to stay and read through your Hub, can encourage them to leave comments by asking them to explain why they voted a certain way and also encourage them to return to that Hub again to see how other people have voted. Premsingh in her Hub entitled How to take maximum advantage of the poll capsule offers a number of ideas for using polls.

While I have taken the opportunity to add Categories, Slideshows, News and Polls to older Hubs written before these tools were available, I have also found myself adding them to some of my newer Hubs in which I, for one reason or another, did not include these tools when I originally wrote the Hub.

Sometimes I have written Hubs, such as contests or HubMob, which have to be published by a deadline and there just wasn't time to add these extra features. Other times I haven't seen a use for them at the time of writing but then come up with ideas for their use in a particular Hub at a later date. In the case of photos (a feature that has always been available in HubPages) I may not have had relevant photos at the time of writing but have since taken photos that can be used (since starting to write for HubPages I have been aggressively taking pictures with my digital camera and cell phone camera of anything that I think I can either add to an existing Hub or use in some future Hub and have built up a library of close to 5,000 photos).

Finally, Read and Learn from Fellow Hubbers

Reading other writer's Hubs is a great way to get ideas for how to use the tools provided by HubPages or other ideas for changes that can add to revenue. Numerous Hubs have been published dealing with how to improve earnings with HubPages and these, of course, are a great source of new ideas for increasing revenue.

But just reading the Hubs of others in general can also give you ideas and insights into ways to generate more revenue. Among other things you can see what topics or subjects tend to generate the most comments or highest Hub scores (while high scores are important I have noticed that high scores do not necessarily correlate with high earnings when you compare the Hub scores of articles with the Google AdSense revenue generated by those same Hubs), learn new ways of using various tools, the effect of different layouts and formatting, etc. In addition to improving you writing business, reading Hubs by others can be both enjoyable and educational as well.

While there are a number of professional writers on HubPages, most of us are not writing professionals. However, HubPages can be a great place to learn the business of writing because not only is there no charge for reading, writing and publishing on HubPages we also get immediate feedback in the form of reader comments, Hub scores and, when we do a good job, cold, hard cash.

      Great information and hub. Everything you say is absolutely true. Like any business, you have to do work in order to get something out of it. While I definitely see the potential in earning money with hubpages, but do not have the time to write all the articles that are on paper somewhere in my folders or in my head.

      Chuck this has been one of the finest reads by me. Very authoritative and well explained. You have laid down the different ways of cultivating hubs to draw maximum cash returns from them.

      I only wish I had read this hub when I started actively writing almost 10 months ago. But it's never too late.

      Bookmarked this hub. Voted up, useful and awesome. Shared this so that many more can benefit.

    • Chuck profile image

      Chuck Nugent 7 years ago from Tucson, Arizona - I have experimented from the beginning with some of my Hubs but all of them seem to be holding up. I just checked my states and I have 5 Hubs with a HubScore of 100 each - two were written a couple of months after I joined HubPages in the Fall of 2006, one was written in 2008 and the other two last year.

      My lowest scoring Hub at the moment is at 53 and was written in early 2007.

      With all of them I have tried to write things that I feel people want to read. I try to keep promoting them and I often make adjustments and updates which keeps them fresh.

      Chuck, I've been here for about a year. It took me about 10 months to hit that first $100.00. But I was sloppy about it. You really have to do some work to get this whole hub thing going. My next $100.00 came only 2 months later. You made an important point when you said that we need to write what people want to read. That seems so simple, but is often ignored. I still keep forgetting that, haha.

      Peacefulparadox - thanks for visiting my Hub.

      In answer to your question, you might be able to make more money with your own free blog from Wordpress, Google's Blogger, etc. However, unless you found a niche that drew a large amount of traffic you would more than likely make very little.

      The great thing about HubPages in my opinion is that the HubPage team does a great job of marketing and making HubPages known which attracts a lot of viewers. In addition, there are many great writers who write regularly and they help to draw traffic which often stays and surfs the site after reading the article they came for. I think that many of these writers have large followings who visit their Hubs regularly with many staying and browsing around other Hubs for a few minutes.

      For me, I feel that I can make a lot more, even though I share the revenue with HubPages, writing for HubPages than I could going solo and getting to keep 100% of Google AdSense Revenue.

    • profile image

      peacefulparadox 7 years ago

      My question is... How would the Google Adsense income compare if you had your own (say Wordpress blog) instead of writing for Hub Pages. On the one hand, you would get an increase due to the fact that you are not sharing part of the income with HubPages. But on the other hand, you might get a decrease due to the fact that you lose the connectivity and traffic that HubPages bring to your articles.

      premsingh - thank you for the nice compliment. 

      As to your Hub on the use of polls, this is one that i have bookmarked and refer to for ideas and guidance periodically when I feel that a poll could be used effectively in an existing or new Hub.  I should also point out that readers can also benefit from your Hub on the use of polls by clicking on one of the many links you have to other Hubs you have written on other ways Hubbers can improve the revenue generation capabilities of their Hubs. 

      It is no secret that an article published on HubPages will generally generate considerably more revenue here than if it were published on another site and that is because the wealth of good authors and good content here that attracts more viewers and we all benefit from this as they surf around the site. 

      Further, I assume that if I write good articles that are interesting and useful to readers, that I will increase my base of readers who return regularly to view my Hubs.  Providing links to good articles on the same topic by other Hubbers simply saves my readers the time and trouble of having to search for these additional articles, thereby giving them more reason to return to my Hubs regularly.  As I see it this is win-win-win for all - I build loyalty from readers, fellow Hubbers get more traffic and readers get more information faster.

      Thanks again for your comments.

      monkey2610 - I see that you are new so welcome to HubPages.

      For most of us HubPages is about both a desire to write as well as an opportunity to make money from that writing. Of course, HubPages is also about meeting new people and getting to know them through both the Hubs they write as well as from their comments on other people's Hubs and comments in the Forums.

      I wrote this particular Hub with two objectives in mind. The first being that I wanted to discuss ways in which writers could periodically update their previously published Hubs to keep generating revenue from them. The second was to share some of the numerous other Hubs written by myself and others describing other ways to increase their income from the HubPages they wrote. The ones I shared were Hubs by others which I had found particularly useful in my writing. But in doing so I also wanted to give new Hubbers, like yourself, and existing ones as well an idea as to the amount of help that is available on HubPages to enable people to increase their HubPages income.

      Again, welcome to HubPages I look forward to seeing you first Hub.

      Professor Chuck, I'm new to writing for HubPages, but I've developed a pretty clear idea of what Hubs look like that merit great scores. This Hub is definitely a perfect 100. Between studying this Hub and several others by Mark Knowles, Shalini, and Paul Edmonson, I have fashioned a formula that I feel great about for the format of my Hubs. Thanks for being willing to share what you've learned during your tenure.

      Everyday Miracles - thanks for the comment. I have found that I can get a 1 - 2 day boost in revenue by simply updating two or three of my older Hubs. Of course, publishing new Hubs is still probably the best way to boost traffic and revenue and, I believe it was Paul Edmonson who once commented someplace that publishing at least three articles a week is what is needed to retain and increase readership on HubPages or any other individual blog. Of course, the more Hubs one has, the more Hubs you have that can be updated.

      Thanks again

      HHO2U - as you publish more Hubs your monthly revenue should, other things being equal, go up. However, what ultimately determines your income is the number of clicks you get.

      As my friend Jimmy the Jock has pointed out, writing on current hot news topics generates a lot of traffic for those Hubs but the traffic dies off after a few days or weeks when interest in the topic drops - this is why the so called "evergreen" topics are better. But even evergreen topics can vary if they are seasonal (holiday articles, travel articles, recipies & food articles dealing with seasonal food, etc). These can be good in that each year they will tend to draw traffic during their season and then lose traffic until the next season.

      Also, from my studies of my traffic it seems that certain topics tend to attract people who search mainly by clicking on ads for the topic while other topics attract people who use the search bar - those who search by clicking ads generate revenue while those who use the search bar don't tend to generate as much revenue.

      In my opinion, the best way to make money is to keep writing Hubs which will increase your base and help to ensure a fairly steady income. Also, I think that new Hubs help to push you up in the search engines which brings more traffic to your Hubs.

      Kelsey Tallis -For the Amazon ads I use key words and generally leave the product line as "All" although if I know it is strictly a book or movie will then limit product to "Books", "DVD", etc. As for two copies of the book coming up with different prices, Amazon randomly posts whatever meets my product specification so if I give a subject and limit views to "Books" it will put up whatever books it finds whose titles are similar the product title I give. You can use the Amazon ID number to get a specific book or other product, but I usually don't post with that number.

    • Chuck profile image

      Chuck Nugent 8 years ago from Tucson, Arizona

      sekarsekar81 - thanks for the comment and I totally agree with the part about being paid mentally. While my income from HubPages is rising to the point where I get a nice check each month, as Mandybeau pointed out above, looked at on a weekly basis the income is still not that great and if I divide the amount by the hours I spend working on the articles my compensation is still way below minimum wage. But it is a break from my regular work which makes it a good way to relax and recharge. Low as the pay is, it is still greater than what I make when I just crash in front of the TV to relax. Also, unlike my regular job, HubPages won't fire me if I don't put in a specified number of hours each day. So there is a certain amount of non-monetary compensation to go with the cash Google deposits to my checking account each month.

      thanks again for the comment.

      Great hub, Chuck!

      You addressed some important keys to successful hubbing.

      Creating hubs that will be of interest to readers now and in the future is the key to building a stream of income that isn't based on trading hours for dollars. Breaking away from the work for an hour, get paid for an hour mentality and developing a business mentality that understands hard work and valuable work(work that meets a need) will eventually lead to long term financial rewards.

      Excellent training material here! I realized that 'Categories' was new (and added 'Categories' to my hubs per HubPages prompting), but was did not understand what 'Slideshows', 'News', or 'Polls' were until I read your hub.

      My only (constructive) criticism of 'News', is that when I click on a link (in this hub for example), I am taken away from this hub. I think these links should open up in a new window, not replace the hub.

      I was trying out your 'News' links, and had to click 'Back' in my browser a few times before I could return to your hub and start reading the comments.

      Maybe this is feedback for HubPages (and not you), but just wanted to share nonetheless.

      Great hub, lots of food for thought here.. Although it is not my approach. I think affiliate offers are a way better monetizing opportunity than adsense is.

      If you can find an affiliate program that is related to your hub (or make a hub around an affiliate program that you like) you can make a multitude of what google will pay you for clicks.

      Maybe that answers Sue Baileys question to some extend as well?

      For instance, if you like green energy, you could make a hub around "earth 4 energy", that's a popular product that teaches people to make their own solar panels etc cheap. If you refer people and make just one sale, that's more than 30 bucks in your pocket. That's around one billion adsense clicks ;)

      I think I will make a hub about this subject some day, if anyone is interested anyway.

    • Chuck profile image

      Chuck Nugent 8 years ago from Tucson, Arizona

      mandybeau - thanks for your additional comments, and especially your comments on my writing which I found encouraging.

      My intent in writing this Hub was to get those who are interested in making money to begin looking at their HubPage activity as a business and to treat their writing as an investment that could yield a continuing return.

      I agree with you that most, if not all of what appears on HubPages is of little commercial value in the traditional writing arena. However, the market (readers in this case) we are writing for is not looking for in depth material. From the research I have read and my experience from comments on my Hubs along with visitor statistics from HubPages and revenue statistics from Google seems to back up the research, people visiting sites like HubPages are looking for basic information (a recipe, pointers on where to go to get a passport, etc.) that they can obtain quickly and easily as well as short pieces to read while taking a break from work or just surfing to relax. The same is true for video where short clips are preferable to full length movies.

      Personally I have consdered other writing projects and I would like to move up and take on bigger and more lucerative writing projects in the future but don't have the time at the present. So, in the mean time I have found HubPages to be a good place to write and learn (and HubPages is a good place to get feedback and ideas from people, like you, who take the time to provide thoughtful comments) and make a little money in the process without having to make any time commitments beyond what I can currently fit into my current schedule.

      As for Google, I am sorry to hear about your experiences. So far they have worked well for me and I will just have to hope that I don't encounter problems in the future like you have encountered. I will continue to try to take whatever steps I can to avoid breaking rules and, beyond that, I don't have any control so worrying about something bad happening is counter productive.

      So, thanks again for both of your comments. I hope that I didn't offend you with my reply to your first comment or imply that I had taken offense to your comment. I was just trying to respond to what you had said and clarify what I had meant about the income and intellectual property points I had made in the article.

      Thanks again for both of your comments.

      Actually Chuck I had you in the Group that people may ask to write, but you must admit, most of what is on the internet, is just stuff.

      Your articles are up there with my favs, Londongirl, AEvans Anjilchugh. Hawkesdream, Misha, JJRubio, Cindyvine and all my fans.

      Lissie writes stuff that is for example well written enough, in its gramatical forum, but for this person, and it is solely my opinion, her subject matter is questionable in terms of real research. Her Rustic Interior design piece was absolute B.S. (Dead animals rustic ) ridiculous.

      I was warning you solely because I would hate to see a talent such as yours, which is very real cut off, Google cannot be trusted, to not just do that, for any one of a 100 reasons...... Or a friend may click your page in a misguided attempt to make you some money.

      There seems little right of appeal. I didn't bother after hearing others views. I remain opposed to Googles Policy, and tell them so in my Hubs. They know about me and I am sure they would love to cut me off Hub Pages................. if they did that then I would act..... So just be very careful, don't share stories with a friend that may click for you, without your knowledge.and morever watch for those auto click things that appear in your browser.

It is great to know that there is a bit of compensation to obtain while sharing writings that one is passionate about.

      Thank you.

    • Chuck profile image

      Chuck Nugent 8 years ago from Tucson, Arizona

      mandybeau - thank you for your comments.

      You are the second person to question bring up the possible Google Adsense terms violation. JoeM mentioned it earlier today and I followed his advice and removed the click information. Since I have not had time to study the AdSense terms carefully to determine if any part of that graphic violated the terms, I have removed it at least until I can determine if it is allowed or not.

      As to the income itself, I mentioned it solely to show people that money can be with HubPages. This is a side income which is extra as my wife and I both have full time jobs both of which pay consderably more than $75 per week.

      As to the intellectual property rights, I agree that what I have written and what most other people have written on HubPages probably do not have much value beyond the revenue they generate on HubPages.

      However, many of us have written a number of Hubs on a particular theme (such as Jimmy the Jock's World War I series - links to most of the articles in the series can be found at the end of this Hub of his ) which could possibly be expanded into a book at a later date but could not be used without permission, and possibly compensation, if HubPages insisted on keeping the rights to the content as some other sites do. In my "Children and Intellectual Property Rights" hub which I believe that I linked to in this Hub I think I refer to the story of Maria von Trapp and her sale of the movie rights to her book about the Trapp family's experiences during World War II for something like $3,000. The family needed the money and the book was not selling that well at the time so she signed over all derivative rights to the book. The buyer then turned it into a movie ("The Trapp Family Singers") that had very modest success (the last I heard the original and copies of the movie had been lost) and then re-sold the rights to a Broadway Producer and the play and subsequent movie "The Sound of Music" was a huge financial success (Maria and her family did receive a royalty on the movie "The Sound of Music" of less than 1% as a gift from the producers. So, while I am not expecting any great windfall from what I have written here, I have owership if something does change in the future.

      Thanks again for your comments.

      Sorry to pour cold water on your Hot Hub, but I focussed on the $2.04, at the top and then looked at the monthly, balance of $302.05, and Its still comes down to only $75.00 a week. Also if you did all this work, and Google cut off your account, as they have mine and countless others, because of auto clickers, and zealous friends, all you passive earnings are gone forever. As for intellectual rights.By and large no one would want the Hubs for any commercial purposes and if for example they liked the writing of one of the better Hubbers, then surely they would contact that person, for say an article. Its a fun thing,fact is you'll never become famous nor will you make a million dollars. especially since I think you have violated their rules already by showing your account.

      Becki Rizzuti 8 years ago from Indiana, USA

      There are very few people at HubPages who have really inspired me to do "more" with my hubs. I'm not going to lie: I care about the money. But when I first joined less than two weeks ago I was more interested in having an outlet that was attached to a community. I'd gotten sick and tired of writing blog and forum posts that didn't get any kind of response at all. Add to that the fact that I can be prolific (and sometimes pedantic) and I seriously came here with a problem and maybe even a chip on my shoulder.

      But Chuck, this hub alone has really changed my outlook on publishing content on HubPages. Some of the content that I have posted is specifically designed to get attention and hopefully make me some money. Others are targeted to being *read* above all else. This hub reaches out and helps us hubbers to achieve both goals.

      And not only does the content help us but this hub stands as a beautiful example of how it's done!

      I am pretty sure that sharing your number of Adsense clicks, Impressions, and Revenue together is a violation of Google's Adsense policy. (You can share revenue all you want, but sharing click through rate is the no-no - see

      You might want to block out the number of clicks and page CTR on your image or you run the risk of getting your account banned.

      Peggy W - thanks for your second comment and compliment.

      I don't mind sharing what I have learned about how to use HubPages effectively to increase earnings as I have learned quite a bit from others (a few of whom I referenced and linked to in this article) who have written great articles sharing their tips and experiences.

      As I see it one of the advantages of writing for HubPages is the huge amount of traffice the site as a whole generates due to its huge number of great authors and articles. I think that much of the traffic that these great articles bring in and the outside followings that many authors have tends to surf around once they get here and that traffic ends up on pages of others as well. So, in my view, helping others to bring in more traffic, indirectly helps to bring more traffic to each of our hubs.

      Besides that, this is a great group here and belonging to and writing for HubPages is similar in some ways to my regular job at the college where I work. And, at that job, most of us share tips with and help co-workers so it is no different here.
