  21. BigBlue54 profile image61
    BigBlue54posted 3 years ago

    You could try robbing banks. Two or three a month should do it. And as there are less bank robberies taking place this would mean less competition. Nothing worse than turning up at a bank with no money in it because someone else has just been there.

    I should point out that the banks and the police do take rather a dim view of this and your earnings will decline somewhat once incarcerated inside a correctional facility.

    Buy Google.  They may probably be making that much from Hubpages per month!

  23. NateB11 profile image93
    NateB11posted 3 years ago

    If you have good SEO knowledge, it's possible to make regular income here to, say, pay a bill or buy some groceries every month. If you are an SEO or marketing expert, you might be able to make a living.

    I'd say with good SEO or marketing knowledge, it'd take at least 50 (more or less) well-written SEO-optimized Hubs to make enough for that bill or groceries per month. Without SEO, maybe hundreds of Hubs if some of them somehow hit on what searchers on the Net are looking for. It's hit or miss if you don't use SEO.

    Evidently, it has to do with timing too. It's been said that those who were doing this thing several years ago when it was still profitable are still doing well. Although, some not as well. Probably this has to do with age; their articles are still indexed on a good spot in search engine results.

    1. NateB11 profile image93
      NateB11posted 3 years agoin reply to this

      To make a living writing on the Net you'd have to diversify; different projects, your own sites in addition to revenue-sharing sites.

      1. BigBlue54 profile image61
        BigBlue54posted 3 years agoin reply to this

        I very much agree with NateB11 here. If you want to make money then build your skills up, assuming you do not already have the necessary skills needed, and then start looking elsewhere online as well as here. Diversify.

        There are plenty of places out there looking for bloggers to write for them and many online news sites are looking for bloggers too. Take a look at Problogger as they are not only a good source of information on blogging but also have a jobs board. One I came across recently is bloggerpro which also has a jobs board.

        Before you start do lots of research. Who can a work for? What can I writer? How do I make money? Where do I learn about SEO? These and many other questions need answers if you want to be successful. And once you start keep looking for other site to write for.

        I do not see you making 50k per month, or even a year, but it is possible to make a living out of it. But do remember it will take a lot of effort on your part. You get out what you put in.

    Earning $50,000 a month on HubPages. Hm! 

    Anyone who could do that would be loco not to have their own top notch brand website.

  25. marcfreccero profile image44
    marcfrecceroposted 3 years ago

    Ignore a lot of these responses, I like your ambition and you should be thinking big - that's how to be successful. I make way more money on my blog than HubPages, so my first piece of advice is to start your own site.

    On HubPages specifically, write a bunch of Hubs until you're consistently making $50 a month. Meaning that if you were to stop writing completely, that $50 would still keep coming in (i.e. Passive Income).

    Next, go to E-Lance and hire experts to write you articles that will get a lot of traffic and appear on the front page of Google and other search engines. With that $50+ coming in consistently, use it to hire who know more than you about SEO to write you articles that will get you even more money.

    Keep repeating this process until you have the $50,000/month. It will take a lot of time, don't get me wrong, but it's definitely possible. Especially when you get a lot of passive income, start using your free time (because you hired other people to do the work for you) to work on other side projects to get you even more money.

  28. Maffew James profile image95
    Maffew Jamesposted 3 years ago

    10 million advertising impressions per month at an average value of $5 per every 1000 impressions ($5 CPM) - 10M / 1000 * 5 = 50000

    On HubPages, you earn from 60% of impressions, meaning, to get 10 million impressions, you would need about 16.7 million pageviews.

    If you could successfully target and rank in first position on google for high traffic, high value keywords, as well as generate significant traffic from social media to the point that you are receiving an average of 400 pageviews per day per article, as an example, it would take 1400 articles to achieve this level of traffic.

    Let's say you get an average of 100 views per article though. Suddenly, you need 5600 articles. Or worse: 20 views per article on average...you then need 28000 articles to reach this target. Can you write 5600 articles that all bring in at least 100 views? How about 28000 articles that bring in at least 20 views each?

    Is it even achievable at all? Sure - although the work required and skill involved is phenomenal. Without mastery of SEO, copywriting, and marketing, it'd be nigh-impossible. Even with great finesse in these areas, it will be incredibly difficult.

    Can you do it on HubPages? Probably not. You'd have more luck with a network of websites based around different topics. Even building 20 websites that achieve 500K pageviews per month will be incredibly difficult.

    Good answers. In truth that is an unreachable goal on hubpages.  For anyone to earn that a month would be incredible, even off hubpages.   However, I have doubled my monthly earnings by simply writing nearly double the amounts of hub per month.  But we're still talking a few quid and no where near 100.

    If you make 1 cent the first day of the month, then 2 cents the second, 4 cents the next and so on, doubling the previous day, at the end of the month you will have earned over $9 million for the month.

          The really odd thing is all of the people that come on here and expect to be making $1000 a month their first year, etc. It almost never works that way (although there have been a few that make a lot more than that when they find a special hub, like how to win on Kim Kardashians new videogame).
          I think you deserve a special award though---maybe a lot less that $50,000. The answers on this thread have been a lot of fun to read.

      There's a huge difference between positive thinking and realism in this case. Sure we can all try to be positive thinkers and believe a certain money goal could be achieved yet we have to be realistic in its approach.

    Rafiq23 also is celebrating a first payout, which they achieved after 19 months, http://hubpages.com/forum/post/2730250
