My 100th Hub, What I Have Learned About Money and Writing

Updated on October 5, 2010

Time to Celebrate!!

This my 100th Hub on Hubpages and it's been a long run and hard work to reach this point. I joined 6 months ago with no knowledge what so ever. Now I have a good understanding of SEO techniques, how to make money, and how to write some great traffic getting Hubs. I wan to thank everyone that has helped me along the way especially Bill Manning he has been a huge help for me. Hubpages can be hard to start and intimating to anyone new to it. I don't know how many times I could never think of something to write about but now topics fly to me.

Why I started on Hubpages

I originally started on Hubpages for the same reason many people do.  To make money online, this is a bad reason to join.  Honestly you won't make money if that's all you expect to happen.  If you write quality Hubs and put money second it will end up coming in first to your account.  I actually make more now than, when I was writing just to make money.

My blog just wasn't enough to write in so I had to expand my horizons.  Plus with my mind flowing like crazy I could have started up hundreds of Blogs or websites but it just wasn't worth it.  With hubpages you can write about hundreds of topics and you can be totally random.  Plus your material gets read faster with hubpages because it ranks better.

What Hubs do better

I have written a hundred hubs and like any hubber knows the reviews on products do alot better because you can rank a lot better for keywords than you can on bigger keywords.  I have a Hub on a fish tank that ranks number 1 in google for 8 different keywords.  To be successful you have to put the product name in the title.  This automatically makes you to better in Google.

Tips on money making on google

If you read the forums don't get discouraged people brag all the time about the hundreds of views a day.  Alot of people lie and do that to make themselves look better.  Yes their are quite a few that do but they have been on hubpages for years and rank better in Google because of the age.  You don't go pro over night.  So mind your own business and work to increase views.  I went from 15 views a day now to between 170-290 per day depending on the day.  Everyday I look for new ways to increase traffic and people and followers take your time.  Another thing I learned having tons of followers doesn't mean tons of money.  It's the external traffic that your looking for.

Next choose something that you know alot about and go crazy on it because it will be easy for you to write hubs on.  Spread it out though you can turn a topic into 3 hubs.  Say you collect money you can write a hub on where to buy money collections, where to house your money collection, and even Your current collection.  Those are 3 separate hubs.  Another thing stick with Amazon it's easier to make money on than Google adsense.

      This was really useful and I totally agree about writing about what you know about being easier and also more interesting to the reader.

      I've never written a product review yet but after reading this Hub I see it's something I should try.

      Thank you, voted up and useful.

      I just figured I would try to let some people skip that annoying stage of wanting money money money. And realize why hubpages was started.
