Why Choose Hub Pages for Blog Promotion and Blog Earning? How is it Achieved?

Social media is a great way to promote you own blog apart from other promotional methods. You need not spend a single penny to participate in this social network to gain popularity to your blog and to earn passive income as a by product. Surprising! True. You can have a free hosting service like WordPress for your blog. Then you need not own a domain name, a web page, hosting services and web page promotion expenditure but still earn traffic and money to your free hosted blog. One such great source is creating hub pages. Only requirement is to write engaging and useful content to the visitors on a niche topic ( 22 categories so far on hub pages ) and you are done. A featured hub page on this platform will have around 1400 words. Add spice with relevant video, photos, links, quizzes, polls (where ever possible). Such a hub page is also referred as 'Ever Green Hub Page'.

A hub page earns money in many ways. Hub page ad program, Google ad sense program,amazon associate links, e bay affiliate links and your own products. But the placement of these links should match the content of the hub page and and relevant to the topic.

Every on us know that more traffic is more conversions and money. We are also aware that traffic can not be built is one day. To achieve this goal write a post to catch the eyes of 'editors pics' and featured. Hub page network is very huge and they love to spread ' editors pic' article through out their network and the article is respected by Google bots and indexed. Once your hub pages are indexed by major search engines, the hub page will be viral ( a term common for quantum progression).

What you need good writing skills, popular topic and patience, None of these attributes require investment.

HubPages Tutorial - How To Make An Amazing Hub


To Earn is not Your Only Objective
To Earn is not Your Only Objective

A Word of Caution Before Writing for Hub Pages

Decide your Objective

If your objective is only making money through hub pages or through any activity on the internet, stop writing. Money will automatically flow in if you concentrate on offering good content to viewers.

Your strength to be a great hub writer is:

  • Find out the trend through Google search on ' What viewers are looking for' on the internet and offer it to them.
  • Concentrate on quality content and try to attract as much traffic as you can through an organic search
  • Develop social image through social networks like face book, twitter, Digg and develop fans.
  • Develop you email contacts and inform them on what you are up to.
  • Contribute comments on other good hubs and encourage generously to new hubbers. New hubbers will be waiting for a helping hand

Avoid writing hubs for

Money and only for money

Conclusion on Creating Hub Pages

There are so many blogs and social media networks to write articles, exchange ideas, share photos and videos, chat and get inspired. My experience after creating two hub pages is - creating hub pages is fun and easy. Navigation is easy and you can watch your own progress on the score board on word count and adding other media like video, photos and links. You can watch the score board to see whether your article stands out for featured or not. After developing different capsules it is easy to shift them from place to place, text and photo side by side or video and photo. Every text content can be supported with a photo or poll or quiz or table. This web rich template keeps the visitor on your blog for a long time, thus popularity, traffic, money and success. Hope you understand why my statement 'Creating Hub pages' is worth a try
