Make Money Online Writing Articles With HubPages

Updated on September 6, 2014


If you're reading this article and you're not a HubPages member, JOIN NOW and start earning money online by writing short articles for HubPages. REGISTER HERE.

To register with HubPages, all you need is a valid e-mail address. You may use any of the popular website e-mails like Google's Gmail, Yahoo! Mail, or MSN Mail (Hotmail or Windows Live).

How do I earn money?

You write short articles, more or less 500 words, of any topic that you are interested with. HubPages publishes the articles (called hubs in Hubpages) and inserts Google Adsense ads. You earn money from these advertisements.

I am not really that good at writing, can I join HubPages?

Being a professional writer or a skillful writer is definitely an advantage but is not a requirement in HubPages. There's a lot of successful hubbers who earn serious money from HubPages although they are not that good at writing. If you are learning how to write, HubPages is good a place to hone your writing skills.

How much do I earn?

It depends on the quality of your hubs or articles. On how much work you put into your writings. But the good thing is, once you have written a sufficiently large amount of articles, and your articles start earning money from Google Ads, money will keep on pouring in every month, without any more effort on your part.

I want figures, even ballparks

Ok, I know you would ask for figures. You've heard a lot of stories, I assume. Some say they earn a living out of it. Others say thousands of dollars a month. I won't tell you their stories. I'll tell you mine.

I've written around 50 articles. These 50 articles are currently earning around 50 dollars a month, more or less. If we do a little projection with this, if I have 500 articles, I would be earning in the vicinity of 500 dollars a month. What if I have 1,000 articles? That would be around 1,000 dollars per month.

What if I wrote 2,000 articles?  


Once you have written about 20 articles and see the cents on your account become dollars, you may NEVER stop writting.  Take my word for it.  First hand!

      Thanks adriantos7, I know you'll make it big here in HubPages. Just keep on writing hubs and I'm sure you'll be awarded with some $$$ for your efforts. With 5 hubs and a hubber score of 82, that's quite impressive. You must be getting thousands of pageviews per month! My guess is, you may be already earning at least $5 a month with just 5 hubs. What if you have a hundred hubs? That will be a not-too-bad $500 pay a month.

      lctodd1947, at the bottom of every hub is a "Share It!" button. Click on the link and then click on the "Link to this page" button. You will find there the title and URL of the article that you may copy and paste into the article that you are linking.

      In your case, you may want to link your articles "Mortgage Overview" and "Mortgage Credit Analysis" together. Open for edit "Mortgage Overview" and open the hub "Mortgage Credit Analysis" normally on another window or another tab. Click on the "Share It!" button on "Mortgage Credit Analysis", and then the button "Link to this page". Copy the title and paste it onto "Mortgage Overview". Go back to "Mortgage Credit Analysis" and copy the URL and paste it again onto "Mortgage Overview". You have just linked "Mortgage Credit Overview" with your "Mortgage Overview". Do the same thing again but this time, link "Mortgage Overview" from "Mortgage Credit Overview" so that they both link together.

      lctodd1947, Hubscores usually starts at 50 and will rise as your articles age. Just wait and they'll eventually reach 70 to 80 in a week or two depending on the traffic they get. If the articles get decent traffic or pageviews, it will score around 90.

      Take a look at this article to get an idea on how to link together articles.

      I have another question. I just wrote a long articles about received a 50. I put a lot more time into this article than I did the ones with 60 and above???Do not understand that.

      How do you place all of your say Christian hubs together and Mortgage one together or is this possible and am I doing the right or not by mixing? Thanks for your imput.

    • lctodd1947 profile image

      lctodd1947 8 years ago from USA

      Thanks for reaching out to me too. I got my hands slapped because I did not read the regs very well and put some links to my blogger blog. I didn't know???? I will reading your stuff and I may ask you some questions. I have written a lot on blogger and GoArticles etc. but no money??? Blogger is hard to get the traffic to. I used the Firefox to check the keywords etc...I have been doing this full time 2 full months but just decided to put Adsense on Hubpages. I write my own content and do not re-use it. I am not the best writer but I am learning about links and I am trying. I live in the Country where there are no jobs and my previous experience was in Mortgage in which I was very successful. AT any rate any advise I would really appreciate. Thank you

      I may not of joined this if I hadn't been rather desperate to find a means of money.

      It gives me a wonderful chance to also share my writings, which I have always wanted to do.

      I just need to find my misplaced glasses before my eyes pop out! hehe.

      JosHars, Thanks too for reading my article and taking the time out to leave a comment. You can earn money with HubPages, that's for sure. And not little money only. If you could make it a daily habit to write one article each day, in a year's time, that would be 365 articles. After two years, you probably already have around 730 articles. By then I bet you would be earning around $1,000 a month with HubPages.

      Try visiting the Forum. You'll learn from old-timer and respectable hubbers that some of them are really making big money out of HubPages. But it takes quite a time. Most of them are writing for HubPages for more than two years.

      Thank you for this hub! I was curious as to what the average profit might be. I joined hubapages to learn to write and communicate better. It is nice to know I will make a little money too.

      About $1 per month per post. That sounds about right. If you have the proper keyword, promotion, backlinks, etc

      I like your writing style. Thanks for being one of the 'first' to reach out to me. I'm finding HubPages addicting. I'm experience a 'wait time' with setting up the AdSense and the Ebay affiliate settings. I do love writing, and just the idea of being able to earn money, from doing what I love, is so liberating!
