Making a living writing on Hubpages.
Are you making any money writing on Hubpages?
Hubpages is a great site for any writer to get started writing for a living. In fact, many writers take the time to do a great deal of research, before writing and finally publishing a hub on Hubpages. For many writers, Hubpages is their main source of income at the moment. For me, writing on Hubpages became almost an OBSESSION when I saw just how many pros vs cons there were for this site.
I'll admit, when I first heard of Hubpages I was a bit cautious because I was already working on growing my blogs, and working on Triond. When I first started to work on Hubpages, I had so many questions as to HOW I was supposed to make money on this website, and HOW I was supposed to bring the traffic that I wanted for my Hubs.
Without traffic and Hubs, writers will most likely not make any money. I hear so many writers asking how are they supposed to make enough money to pay their bills or save enough for a vacation. In reality, all of this is possible by working on this website, however, it will not happen by magic.
How do you make a living writing on Hubpages?
That is the question to answer today, and the one question that I ask myself every single day.
Making a living writing on Hubpages is not hard, it just takes a lot of hard work. For one, you have to put in the hours. Find out how the site works, focus on topics that you know the most about, and finally: Write until you can't write anymore.
One of the things that I love about writing on Hubpages is that I can carefully monitor how much money I am making everyday, and knowing just how much more work I have to do to make the money that I want every month.
Let me explain this:
Writers can make money from Adsense, and the Hub Ad program. The Hub Ad program basically pays writers by how much TRAFFIC they bring in to their hubs. Unlike many other websites such as Helium, and Triond, Hubpages is not so picky about what is published as long as the Hubs are helpful enough for writers. Also, the Hub Ad program actually pays writers MORE when hubs get a lot of views.
So basically writers can make a descent amount of money by simply publishing hubs and bringing in traffic online.
Hubpages has an amazing community where writers can join and ask other more established writers serious questions about HOW they can improve their writing, and how they can improve their earnings.
"If you want it, you have to work hard for it"
When it comes to writing for Hubpages, this particular statement is very true. Writing for Hubpages and making money from the website takes a lot of time, however, if you want to start making money right away, because you need the money right away, then put the time and write hubs that other hubbers will comment on.
What makes the most money on Hubpages?
I write about three subjects:
- All about freelancing
- Blogging and
- making money.
up until recently, I've started to dip my toes into family and relationships and even creating several recipes that I know other writers will love. Before I can start making money from these Hubs, I know that I have to build up my hub volume( write more hubs) and learn how and where I can promote them online (social networks, Google+.. Etc).
The whole point of Hubpages is for people to write about things that they love, and subjects where hubbers consider themselves "professional" on.
So, to make things short, If you know enough about a certain topic, then write as much as you can about it, and make money from it.

Bring home the bacon writing from Hubpages!
Money, money, money!! Thats what everyone wants to make on HP.
Such an easy word to say, however, extremely hard to create.
The Hub Ad Program on HP is a wonderful program that I highly recommend for writers to sign up for. Unlike Adsense, even if writers do not click on your ads, you can still make money solely from the traffic that you bring.
Do you have what it takes to make enough money from the Hub Ad program?
ABSOLUTELY! If I can do this, then you can too!
I often get asked: What do you write about? and how much do you make a month?
Like I said before, I work on Hubpages every day: commenting, adding writers, and writing on the site. All of this activity definitely helps me earn more money on HP.
The more you do, the more you earn!
In case you haven't caught the hints that I've been dropping through out this Hub, you have to work for the money, if you want earn like the pros.
You have to be able to write and put as much emphasis on Keywords, keyword density, and SEO. These things all help when making money from a Hub. If you have already published a few hubs, then go back and see how many hubs you can fix, or make better. Some of my most viewed Hubs are those that I've gone back to and fixed.
Some of my most viewed hubs also include some of these features:
- At least one picture
- Links to previously published hubs from the same group
- Groups that have more than one hub in them. Preferably more than 20 hubs.
- Hubs that have a lot of personal information on them. Personal experiences, writing experience and so on..
If you have these features on your hubs, then you are most likely either getting traffic, or in the process of getting traffic.
