Is Ad Earnings, Amazon and Google Adsense Worth It?

    I wrote a few articles that I posted and earned ad earnings (Ad Earnings Only). I'm thinking about increasing my earning potential in 2016 with more informational articles: (health, recipes, how to's, and etc.). I'm also thinking about adding Amazon and Google Adsense. However, I haven't posted since May of 2015. But, I'm still earning from ads. It's not much, only $[snipped] in 2015 from the Ad Program. Do you think it's worth the time and effort to start back writing quality articles (on various subjects) to increase my Ad revenue, Amazon and Google Adsense?

    Google pretty much ignores health articles from anybody but medical websites. Recipes don't seem to do that well either, not to mention they aren't protected by copyright when stolen.

    Btw, I perused your hubs and noticed your traffic accolade. Could you put in a good word for me upstairs?

      And 992 comments on that one hub isn't bad either. smile

      Recipes have been doing well for me if they aren't about common things (like my snickerdoodle cookies) if I just post them on Pinterest with good photos. Nothing like that does well on Google anymore, but Pinterest does give good traffic.

        I'd forgotten about Pinterest and recipes. You are right.

    I say, yes, it's worth it. Especially the HP Ad Program. If you can get some fairly decent traffic, you can keep earning long after the writing work is done.

      I agree with NateB11. It becomes passive income, meaning you are still earning income from your past hubs.

    I am earning a full time living from Adsense, Amazon and other earning streams online... and if I can do it with my terrible writing then anyone can...

      ...but to be fair, LeanMan, HubPages is not one of your main income sources.

        I did mean to say that... Rushing away as always...

        HP is a small part of my income generating strategy. One that seems to be getting less significant every month.

    I do much better with the HP ad program than Adsense.
