    I have spent the last month editing, updating, and writing new hubs. This week I received an email from HubPages that I have published 25 Featured Hubs, which puts me in the Top 3% of Hubbers that have "achieved this milestone."

    I am so thankful for the feedback that so many of you have given about my hubs. You have made me a better writer, and I am encouraged to keep writing and to keep improving.

    Thanks Hubbers!

    Congratulations!  You've given me the motivation to update my hubs now.

      lifelovemysteryposted 16 months agoin reply to this

      I was absent from HubPages for so long that I didn't know about all the changes they had made. I started paying attention to their emails and suggestions to update my Hubs. The first one I worked on had the most traffic, and I continued with that strategy for all the others. I unpublished one Hub, and have since written five more. It was a lot of work, but my traffic is up and I'm motivated to keep going. Cheers!

      Thanks Cheryl and Congratulations! I never considered the possibility of having 100 Featured Hubs. That will take discipline on my part, and I look forward to the journey. Cheers!

          They should be you have some good jams. Maybe try some SEO tweaks with titles? You never know that may work.

            FatFreddysCatposted 16 months agoin reply to this

            (shrugs) Meh. I've tried playing the SEO game and I suck at it. Nowadays I write stuff, throw it out there and leave it up to the Internet Gods. If they like it, fine. If not, I write some more stuff and try again.

            It may not be the most profitable way to do things 'round here but it's way less stressful. big_smile

            When I am able to pimp/promote my stuff via social media channels I do pretty well, but lately I haven't had the time for that so things have been kinda "all quiet on the Western front," so to speak.

              When I started editing my hubs last month, I also began to use Google Adwords tool to find related words and phrases that I had not included. Granted, I don't review all 700 options, but I do review the first and second pages after sorting by 'Suggested Bid' amount. I do believe this is how I was able to get them all featured. It is extra work, but there is a payoff in traffic.

              Freddy, I do the same except I pin my hubs on Pinterest.  Most of my traffic comes from Pinterest now so it is worth the 2 minutes it takes to pin it.

                FatFreddysCatposted 16 months agoin reply to this

                I use Pinterest, but I've never had much luck getting any traffic out of it. I guess I'm not posting the kind of stuff that "pinners" are looking for.

                  lifelovemysteryposted 16 months agoin reply to this

                  I have a couple of hubs on Pinterest, but I don't get a lot of traffic. Right now Pinterest is blocking ToughNickel so I'm getting zero traffic from those pins.

                  OldRosesposted 16 months agoin reply to this

                  I make sure to pin my hubs before they get moved to a niche site to avoid problems like blocking ToughNickel.

                  Mostly they are looking for pretty photos to make their wall look pretty.  Trim your first photo and add some appealing text to it, you may get more views.

      Thank you. I think that writing evergreen Hubs is quite a task, but I updated all my Hubs to make them evergreen and I think that helped get them featured. Cheers!

    Congrats! Are you making any money yet? I just recently got my fifth featured hub. It's quite odd though because one of my strategies for making articles rank high on Google is including a few links inside the article to similar content stuff and links to the websites you are talking about in the article. This helped my ranking on Google a lot. However, here on hubpages it seems to be penalized as far as score and ranking on Hubpages goes. I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to rank the articles on Google while adhering to the strict hubpages rules lol

      "Making money" on HubPages doesn't happen overnight, and quite frankly it can take years to make money consistently. I've been on HP for five years but was active during the first two. I only recently logged in to see what was happening. If I had posted content regularly then I would probably have a decent source of passive income. It takes time, dedication and a real committment to your craft, to continually improve....and make consistent revenue. HubPages has incredible forums and tutorials that are very helpful. Cheers!

        Oh, I know I've ran dozens of sites that I sold that were making 200-500$ monthly on adsense. Was just wondering if you had any pennies in the account yet from your articles lol

          Yes, I have received money from writing on HubPages.
