What HubPages did to me

Updated on February 11, 2010

Your write-ups making money

I was turned off of investing my money online because of many pyramiding or networking scams that will lure you to invest on them. My e-mails mainly consist of many invitations of the so-called fast cash investment schemes. Even, if I delete it, it just keep on coming in my email address, even in the spam mail section. The persistence of this money-making database is alarming, not only me, but all users of internet, as well.

The allure of HubPages

As I began the search for the best writer’s haven last year, HubPages flashed on my computer’s screen. It turned out to be the best thing and the most considerate site that welcome me to the writing world again. This is my best find when I forgot the password of my blog site. It opened many opportunities writing subjects and ideas that I’ve experienced, read and viewed.

Start a new hub

This is a big challenge for writers who want to express their ideas in a rich-content stories. I noticed that other writers did research well to get a higher rating. Featured writers have 100 per cent rating or at the bracket of 95 per cent or so. I am also longing to be in that bracket of Hub Nuggets. The good thing was I was nominated as one of the ten wannabies on September 2009.It inspires me to make more sensible and rich-content hubs. I even dared myself to a 30-hub challenge each month for the third time around.


By carefully selecting your tags or selected words that jive to your topic, you can easily associate it to products on sale at eBay or Amazon online stores. I experienced being disapproved by Google AdSense due to the fact that I violated clicking my own ads by accident. Ads affiliate like eBay and Amazon provide great opportunity to associate their products with my hubs. If someone of your fellow hubbers or online buyers click your ads, it will be converted to certain percentage and cash. Analytics powered by Google checks the richness of the contents of writer’s hubs. There’s also Yield Build and Kontera that will also check your tags and contents. EBay requires the writer to buy a domain in order to enjoy the percentage of referrals into cash.


Many prolific HubPages writers have received good payoffs. By continuously managing it’s hub, it is always possible to be featured as one of the Hub Nuggets. To encourage your friends to visit your hubs, you can connect it to Facebook and Twitter. You can also add your write-ups top your blogspot at

. Google AdSense is also managing the site. Adding its widgets and carousels will surely lure some online readers to buy something from your blog site.

      @Brinafr3sh: Challenges in HubPages make us better writers. It really honed our skills and technique to dig deeper on subjects that interest us.

      Thanks for sharing your efforts in those challenges. I'm glad you're able to participate doing a 30-day Hub Writing Challenge.

      Hi, I too challenge myself to do a 30 day Hub writing challenge this month, but I only write one hub a day. Great ideas, thanks. Voted up.

      I'm still struggling writing, but my right time will come here in HubPages. Thanks for this hub, travel_man1971.

      Sir Pete, Miss Teresa, and Jeremy aka Cojaq, thanks for your views and comments. I still am trying every topic available to be included in my hub page, but it doesn't earn that much. I've noticed that some prolific hub writers stick to one topic only but earn more profits.

      Good Hub...I too hate all of the Spam and "Get Rich" garbage out there. I personally have my ads set at the lowest setting, since I want people to actually read what I write and not get distracted by ads...the few pennies that you make from them isn't worth my time, in my opinion. Thanks for the great information though.

      This is a great advice. I too even now still do not know how to earn money in here. They say when there are advertisings and I saw a whole lot of advertisings in my hubs, yet nothing is happening. I thank you for sharing your thoughts in here. More power.
