Increase Your Hubpage Earnings With These Divine Insights

Updated on April 22, 2012

Super Cool Hub Optimization Tips

I’ve been hubbing for the past 3 years and earned quite a bit so far. Earnings from Hubpages have helped me a lot to support my studies and later my career till date. Here I share some deep insights I learned on the way during my avid writing hours. These tips helps you maximize your Hubpages revenue potential. Implementing some of these tips require very less effort and can spike your earnings up to a minimum of 10% for doing nothing. Let’s jump in.

Use The Superpower of Intrahub Trackers to Increase your earnings by 10%

Interlinking is very important for recycling your traffic. Usually, all the hubs you’ve ever written experience an 80/20 traffic distribution. That is, 20% of your hubs get 80% of the traffic. We are going to build up a tip on this principle. If one of your hubs ( say Hub A) start getting huge popularity ( relative to your other hubs) and ‘if’ you have closely related hubs ( say Hub B) to that topic. Then you may provide a link to Hub B from Hub A and vice versa. Probably, people interested in the first article would also go to next linked hub since both are very closely related. This drastically improve your visitor count to the newly added hub and gradually it becomes valued by Google and other search engines, and gets ranked top for its keywords. So far so good.

Next, create a tracker and use it while linking Hub B from Hub A. Volia! You just improved 10% of your revenue potential for that hub. The tracker gets you a share of 10% of the advertisement for an hour to the page you’ve linked to. If Hub A is popular enough, you’d be getting enough visitor to Hub B all day. The two benefits of this tweak are :

  • You increase the revenue potential of your hub by 10%
  • You can monitor the number of people visiting your related hubs via by checking the tracker statistics.

For me, it was astonishing to find that the tracker I created for this have invited over 36,458 pageviews , 19 signups, 32 hubs for those signups and 5,611 hub views. ( See I never expected these sign-ups, I got them for doing nothing hard )

The Magic To Make Ads Appear In Your First Text Capsule

Hubpages uses an automated program that optimally places advertisement in the hub. Generally the most important ad is placed by along with the first text capsule. For most of use, there is a tendency to merge an image capsule along with the first text capsule of the hub so that the reader gets a good visual impression on first look. This will push down the advertisement to lower portions of the hub where the user is unlikely to click. Leave every first text capsule of your hub free from images, and the ad-block will automatically appear along with the text. The point is, google uses contextual advertising which shows advertisements according to what the user is searching for. So that first ad is a beautiful square ad-block that would be showing the most relevant thing what the user is looking for and its the best visual impression you can give the user.

Establish Authorship To Your Hubs From Google+ and Drive More Traffic

We all heard, Google turned crazy on social networking and integrated all their products with Google+. What’s there in it for article writer, uh? Oh yes, there is stuff. Google introduced an authorship tag. With this function, a small photo of your Google profile ( and link) will appear along with the link to your article in the search listing. This adds authorship values to your article and people are more likely to click on search results with the photo of a genuine author. ( Eg : My photo appears for the search “ Exclusive Cloud Computing Certification And Training Companies “ )

Start A Blog To Promote Your Hubs with Genuine Backlinks

This is one tip that makes you stand out from a normal hubber and it is one of the secrets that top-earners have relied on so long. Start a blog of your own to write and post snippets about your hubs and link back to them. This gives a genuine backlink to your hubs and helps it hop ahead of the competition. “Overly” promoting your hubs is never recommended. Starting your own personal blog on or is a very healthy promotion techinique for your articles. Some of the best hubbers I know maintain such kind of a parallel blog along with their hubpages account. This will open doors for cross-postings of the hubs of fellow hubbers too. This would give incredible value to your hubs.

Discover Goldmines of Keywords - Do Title Tuning Once In A Month

Make it a habit that you do Hubpages Title Tuning Tool once in a month. While helping out several begging hubbers I found that they had a goldmine of incoming keywords that their titles never matched. Tuning and tweaking your title once in a month is very essential to find out new keywords that have very less competition. Especially in the starting stages of hubbing, you write about topics you like and learning all throughout your lifetime (without analysing the keyword value) which could sometimes be covered very less by other people. Title tuning would help you unearth such niche topics which are not found by experienced hubbers who already pursuing their own topics.

      Very good, informative hub! I am going to have to watch myself as far as the pictures in the first text capsule goes. I'm afraid I may do that sometimes. I have a blog, which has really helped my traffic. I haven't used title tuner, I am going to have to check into that. I found this hub very useful and interesting, voted up! Great job and thank you for sharing this great information with us! Have a wonderful day! :)

      Very useful information here for all new hubbers. I find a lot of hubs have a photo on the first capsule and quite a few before it too.

      I know some hubbers prefer to publish their hubs for the pleasure of writing and to be read.

      But to all the other writers out there who are publishing articles on HubPages to make money as a main aim then your tips and advice are spot on

      Thanks for SHARING. Up and Useful
