I am making money
I see many articles written on Hubpages earnings and traffic. I am surprised to see that people who have been on here for a lengthy amount of time, or have over a hundred hubs are making so little money and receiving such a small amount of traffic.
Hubpages seems to be working well for me so far. Although it took time to get to where I am, keep in mind that I only have 22 hubs published. The screenshots below are what I am currently dealing with.
How I am generating traffic
I think content is extremely important. What are people searching for? I saw a hub one time entitled, "How to open a door". No offense to the writer, it was actually a very well written article. My point is, how many people are really going to do a Google search for that?
Another way I generate traffic, is links in my articles. Lots of links. I push links back to my other hubs, as well as other hubbers hubs that are relevant to my article. I also make sure all of those links contain my referral tracking code. You can see an example HERE of one of my hubs that contain plenty of links. I try to keep most of them at the end of the article.
I try to use everything
I use links, referral tracking, Ebay capsule, rss feeds. All of this helps. I have never really seen anything about amazon that has helped, buy maybe it is working for other people. I like the Ebay ads since it adds a little to your over-all earnings. Notice below that the Ebay is not alot of sales for as many page views as there are, but it does help a bit.

I really enjoy writing hubs and plan to write many more. I am confident that the traffic and revenue will continue to rise as I do so.
I hope this is an inspiration to new hubbers as well because it really does take time before your hubs start to generate traffic.
