How To Earn Money Advertising Your Hubpage
Ways to maximise the money you make through advertising your hubpage:
There are several things to do to ensure that you make profits and revenue from the hubpages you write.
Firstly, a little about me: I am an experienced blogger and journalist and have decided to join hubpages to see what all the hype was about. On first impression, it strikes me that hubpages run a very good advertising system where multiple adverts can be placed on your page. I have read from some of the more experienced hubbers that they receive $30-$40 a day purely from advertising revenue. Lets put that into context: There is no doubt that you have to do the work. You have to write popular engaging articles, and a lot of them BUT once you have succeeded in that you have the potential, with the right help and marketing advice to make a lot of money.
I would like to share my experience with you, showing you methods in how to be successful in advertising. God knows that there are a lot of scams or bad sites or even illegal sites which try to get you to pay them in order to get your article out there and create you money.
My first and most important rule: NEVER PAY MONEY WHEN YOU FIRST APPLY TO THESE SITES FOR HELP! If the site is good, it will offer a free service.
I am going to list three websites now that should, with the right guidance increase the traffic to your hub by a very large amount. (Don't forget traffic = advert income) Forgive me for using my own referral links here but it would be senseless not to!
This is an excellent site which is perfect for setting up backlinks. Search engines look for backlinks to your website, and when they find them they evaluate how strong those links are. For example, a backlink found on a trashy website won't count for much, if anything it might harm your SEO. A backlink found on an article database of high quality will be considered very strong and greatly boost your rankings in the search engines. MoonProject is a website that ONLY allows high quality articles and as a result, Google and other search engine will value you its content extremely highly. If you are accepted to write for MoonProject, then an article there will certainly help you. Make sure the content you post there is completely unique, but related to what you write on hubpages as to paste the same content on either of the websites violates both of their terms and conditions.
2. Social Networks
Use Social Networks to market your work. Get your friends and family to like what you have written, Make a page about your subject. Use every tool available to you. Every like and every hit counts as a backlink and is invaluable.
This one takes a little more time and is a little like SocialMonkee. Essentially you need to write short unique articles and in them create back links to your hub or website. You also get a box at the bottom of the page to link your website in. This will take the most time but will give you the most profit in the end and this is why:
Google is the most used search engine in the world.
Google lists websites in an order by popularity, safety and what it thinks the viewer will want to see according to his search.
One of the ways it determines this is through the use of back links.
Google has favourites. Moonproject and Enzinearticles are two of those favourites!
So how does it work? Well, by creating back links and referring your website at the bottom of this mini article, google lifts your website/hub higher up the search list ultimately potentially getting you many, MANY more views!
It is an effort to keep writing articles for this but if done properly it works well.
Tip: In order to make a back link (this is my hub on religion - completely unrelated I know but my only other hub so far!) you do this:
<a href="http://chuckbl.hubpages.com/hub/Religious-Interpretation"> Read on at my hubpage</a>
Obviously you put your link in the space where my link is and the piece of writing just after is what the back link will say.
So if you manage to do all that correctly you should be looking at a lot more traffic coming to your hub/website and hopefully make a lot more money from the adverts. In other words: free marketing!
Finally, I would like to give you just a few tips:
When ever you get the opportunity to make tags, make SURE that they are relevant. By relevant they should be in the title, in the beginning, middle and end of of your hub and feature regularly. It is very important that this is done correctly in achieving maximum views.
Make sure your title is interesting. I cannot stress enough how important it is that your title speaks out to the reader and grabs their attention. If you are researching recipes on roast chicken on google and there are two links, one which says: "roast chicken recipe" and one which says "AWARD WINNING ROAST CHICKEN RECIPE - EASY TO MAKE, DELICIOUS TO EAT!" You will probably click on the second. It really can make all the difference.
So that is it for now. I will add to this if I find further methods which seem to be extremely helpful.
Leave comments or questions and let me know how you are getting on - remember this is an experiment for all of us, and knew sites and tools become available the whole time to help us advertise and make money online.
