Hubpages- New Addiction?...Experiences of a newbie.
"Hey, do you know about hubpages?"... was the question one of my friends asked me during an usual chat we had. I thought this was one of the other scam sites and i visited the link he gave, just not to let him down. I checked it, said it is nice just for the sake and closed the browser and went on with the chat and other things i've been doing.
I don't know why, but clicked on that link once more and spent some time on hupages. The word "adsense" popped out several times. The most significant thing was, they provided a space for me to give my adsense id and other affiliate site id's.
I was reluctant to give my adsense id at first(i already had an account on adsense). "Why should they have my adsense id?", i thought and did not provide my id. But i went on inside and found lot of people writing different topics and discussing various subjects. Man, this is cool!!!.
That Rings A Bell!
Bodybuilding is one of my favorite topic and i thought i can also give it a try. Right away i wrote a topic on Proteins, without any knowledge on hub creation. But somehow, i managed to include a picture and to make paragraphs. When i published it after an hour or so, wow... it felt great!!!, i should be thinking of creating more hubs.
Also, there came google ads on my article. Now, i understood why hubpages ask for my adsense id. I went right away to my account settings and entered my adsense id. And confirmed it inside my google account too(that gave me some relief- atleast,it's still within my control). Once i published my first hub, hubscore came to my notice. So i researched on that in froums and all, to know that it has to do something with traffic, content, keywords.... (whatever...).
- Hubs That Make Real Online Money
There are certain things a hubber should definitely be aware of, to maximize a hub's potential and to drive in the money.
Next day when i signed in, hey, my hubscore was up a bit and i had a fan... this is really cool, people really use this site. When i finished my second hub on Muscle building, i was like getting some "kick out of it".
It was then i noticed that each of my hubs had scores of their own, and it increased slowly day after day. After three days, some of my hubs started showing up on "featured hubs". Man, i cannot explain how i felt. With no prior experience in content writing, i came up on featured hubs, that was cool. So i decided to go along with this and started participating in the forums, questions, answering others... u know... things like that. Altogether, it felt good.
It gets Serious...
I saw many people testifying about the earning they have and how they maintain their traffic and all. So, i got interested in that line and started to use the techniques i learned from other hubbers. There was not much development, but i kept on doing what we do here... hub on...:)
One day there was a .20$ collected in my adsense account. Wow, u got to know yourself how it feels. It was not much of an amount, but as a newbie, it was something like, a "Milestone"?. From then on, there was no turning back. It doesn't matter if i earn or not, it will work out for me someday.
Am a happy soul. Man, i've got my articles online. Im on world wide web, a writer... isn't that great!!!.
