Who is the top earner? I heard of one lady earning around $1800 per month. Do you think you can eventually double or triple this?
Hmmm... Where did you hear that? Within HubPages?
Paul Deeds. Not rocket science. Though I'm thinking his secretary (Ryan) and hairdresser (Maddie) work hard to keep him sane and sensible
dammit - I thought my $700 last month was good (primarily Amazon sales). Looks like I'll have to do some more work.
LOL - I knew there was a reason I don't come onto the forums much - too many of my secrets to spill, but since you ask.
The secret to making money with Amazon is to target actual product names. Go to Amazon and have a look at which products are selling well. Then go to the Google Adwords Tool to see if that product is also getting decent searches (around 1000 or more per month). Next go to Google and check your competition. Type this into Google intitle:"your keyword" to see how many pages are also using the same keyword in their title. Find keywords that have less than 700 pages that have that keyword in the title.
Make a hub using that exact keyword. Write good quality original content. Add one or two amazon modules AND add your affiliate link directly as well (no more than twice on the page to keep within Hub rules).
Make sure your links have a good call to action like - Click Here to see Amazon's latest price (or something).
Next your hub will probably rank fairly well to begin with because hubs usually do, but I also do a fairly extensive backlinking campaign to my hubs as well.
Start with articles writing 2 or so articles per hub and using your resource box link your keyword back to your hub. Find other places to leave your backlink if you can (don't spam though obviously).
Also consider writing more than one hub and linking them together - that will give you a bit of a boost in Google too.
Um .. that should get you started.
Dammit - I hate spilling all my secrets.
Take care hubbers
Wow thats awesome. I have only made pennys a day so far... Good job
$700 impressive. I get mixed results and my earnings fluctuate, nothing like $700 though. Must work harder!
I can tell you who is the bottom earner--me. I've made zero, zip, zilch, nada so far. I hope to double or triple this to triple zero in the near future.
Adsense is the major source and it wouldn't like the publisher talking about earnings so openly!
Well I think in terms of hubbers ben is looking good for that title ... http://www.makemoneyonlinewithseo.com/m … es-week-6/
Great article Lissie, cheers for the link, jeeez doncha just love that girls smile
Have a good weekend Lissie !
Thank you, I am learning so much and I know that I am not the top earner...yet
Lissie, this is great for Ben. Who is Ben on Hubpages?
It's not hard to figure out if you read the articles... the topics he has hubs about are mind-numbingly boring. I can see why people click
I am lucky enough to have one of his ID's as my affiiate - but I'm not saying. The trouble with having some success is that people start copying you - often word for word - that's why some of us have muliple ID's here.
@Tracey - awesome description re Amazon- which is definitly my achilles spot at the moment. I will be applying those principals in the future.
@research analyst Grizz is the master - I laugh everytime people worry about writing long hubs - I don't think Grizz says hello in less than 2000 words! He published income figures back earlier this year in the $20k range - a month that is!
I agree with him, I personally would rather spend time researching keywords and writing as many articles as possible, rather than spending time building backlinks to my hubs.
Like he said, if you're going to spend 5+ hours per hub promoting it via backlinks, then you might as well be promoting your own blog where you earn 100% of everything.
It's all about finding topics that have low competition and pay moderately well - they don't have to be hubs about topics that earn $10 a click!!. If you have 10 hubs that equal $1 clicks, chances are you can rank higher from those keywords and get more traffic and earn more, anyways. I wrote a few hubs here and there that pay a lot from clicks, but I only get about 1 click a month. It's nice, but I'd rather spend my time writing about more interesting topics that I could write about that'll give me 50 clicks a month and earn me double on th-e 'high earning' topic....it all equals out.
Hopefully that makes sense. I've already started celebrating America's b-day.
Maddie Ruud makes about $1000 per month from google adsense : http://hubpages.com/hub/Using-Hubpages- … ulum-vitae
Oh my God. That's great but could you please tell me if it is from hubpages alone?
I can't clarify that. Maybe Maddie/Mark can elaborate further.
Yes, that figure referred to my AdSense income from hubs alone (not including EBay/Amazon). Of course, I do make more than that from HubPages, if you count my salary as a staff member
And no, I am not the top earner (in terms of revenue from hubs).
I am not the highest earner on Hubpages. However, I wish I was.
That would be so AWESOME!!!
I have just started on hubpages. Thanks to Paul Deeds I do not mind him taking the cut :-) however I am sure it would be a tough journey doing $1000 a month from Adsense . Also great going Ben this is great earning $50-$60 a day from Hubpages.
I should add that hubpages is also a great way to test the waters of your niche. I know I thought I had come across the BEST NICHE EVER a month or so ago. Turns out, it barely made anything and I was basing my estimates off of CPC that was probably being paid for Google SE results, only.
If, I would've spent days writing content for a blog and promoting it like crazy, it would've been a HUGE waste of my time, not to mention a disapointment.
If anyone wants to start a new niche site, you should definitely post a few articles here first and see how they fare.
I've never done a niche site/blog, because honestly it seems like too much work. Maybe in the future I'll find a hot niche because of my hubpage writing that I can use.
I totally agree with this. I don't set up a new website for any topic without trying out a couple of hubs and a few EZA articles first. No sense spending money on domains for something that won't perform like you were hoping. Plus, then you have places to add backlinks when you do build the site
This reminds me of a blogger named Grizzly he makes a ton of money from adsense and he writes really long indept posts on his blog, which some may consider long and drawn out, but I actually find the information interesting and useful, which I think is why grizzly is so popular and he has a following of readers to his blogs. Funny he said that he wasn't even expecting it to happen that way.
Who is this Griz/Grizzly dude everyone is talking about? Is he a hubber or a blogger elsewhere? Anyone have a link to his hubpages and/or blog? I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
If you type "internet marketing for beginners" in to Google you'll be soaking in grizzly juice in no time!
dont ask maddie or mark anything you dont want a stirn answer too.
i suggest hubpages inform the top ten earner so we can learn from the best hubbers
It is Lissie she is going to kill me since I told her secret.
Mark Knowles and Misha come in 2nd and 3rd.:::::::::::
It is a woman's world.
Maddie, Does hubpages know how much individual Hubbers make from Amazon and Adsense? I thought you could just see what happened from your impressions.
And you wouldn't necessarily know about the hubbers who have more than one account, would you?
We could only calculate roughly based on the fact that we get 40% of impressions. And that's pretty impractical, anyway. There are far too many users for us to do that for every individual.
Search engine optimizaiton
lets keep it up the good work
Thanks - Tracy talked about all the work she does to backlink and search amazon and google with keywords. I am just beginning to learn this one.... I wish someone would create a step by step guide to this. As I do learn by trial and error and it does seem that I take in what I can as I go.. which at present suits my writing and my lifestyle.
Maybe I will make some money out of this eventually?! And congratulations to all that have!!!!
I have written a step by step guide - a few in fact One on webpage optimization - bascially how to do keyword research and then what to do with them once you've found them. And another one I've just written talks about all the areas of learning needed to be successful online and in what order you need to learn them and do them. If you can't find them on my profile, send me an email.

I've been trying to make up a hub page for the last few days but whenever i try it i get told I'm doing something wrong, I attempt to change things but i get the same old nonsense.I've got better things to do with my life without messing about trying to satisfy the whim of some unknown censor....

HubPages is not a big money earner for Hubbers, so what inspired you to join?

I am okay at writing and can go way more in depth then I have, however I am not sure it is necessary to have a good profitable hub. I only do things that are fun to me, but I was just wondering about a couple things.1.) I am suggesting links using the suggested links in hubpages, now I knows its...

I just logged in and it shows every single one of my hubs highlighted in pink, to need review. The majority of these were well trafficked and featured hubs or editor's choice. Did something happen? I tried looking in the questions and forums and didn't see anything. I am not a former Squidoo person...
