    What motivates you to keep trying your luck at hubpages?

    By this question I am refering to those people who are in hope of earning money by writing hubs. Just wanted to know what are the motivating factors for the hubbers.

    I just love the fact that others are reading my work.

    As you can see I have a very low Hub score, but my Hubs seem to have good scores.  My accolades are taken away within hours of being given to me.   LOL.  Still, I work daily on my Hub pages.  LOL.

    I am not earning anything, but I am being read, and that is extremely important to me.  Would I like to earn?  Sure, but that would be an added bonus not my reason for being here.  LOL.

    When people watches the success stories of hub page they often gets excited  and thinks that it's an easy job. But in reality it's not that much easy. Writing 100 hub is easy but writing 100 good quality hubs which will attract people is not easy. You have to be aware of plagiarism, you have to work on SEO to get good traffic, you have to do research on the topic you are going to write. I have only 18 hubs and i regularly gets 200+ views because i have joined long time ago and some of my hubs are ranked very well in search engines. Despite getting 200 views regularly i hardly make more then 10 cents. But i know the secret.

    The secret: You hub is you wealth. its liking saving money in the bank which will continuously give you interest. When you will have 50+ good quality hubs you will automatically earn decent amount of money. Even you stop working you will earn money.

    That's my real motivation smile

    hope it helps thanx for the question

    The fact that I know of several people here that make on average a thousand dollars a month from Adsense alone is enough for me.

    Also, I'd be writing somewhere on the web anyway, and I feel as though my work is worthy of pay; and Hubpages is the single best website that I have seen towards that end.  Hubpages allows me to write "most" of the things that I want to write with few rebuttals or problems.  There have been issues, but this site is much less restrictive than some others that I've seen.  It's a business, of course; and if you do wish to make money writing, then the money is in product articles, and problem/solution articles.  Make the article pretty, include various capsules, do some good research; and let it fly.

    This ain't no make money overnight thing, but money you can make, and after you create a hub and do some minor promotion, you're mostly done, the thing could make you money five years from now when you are sleeping, eating, or on vacation.

    I just don't leave it up to luck. Over the years I have made learning about marketing and targeting a daily activity (even if it's reading a marketing book in the bubble bath tongue). I research my articles and good keywords before I write, so I know that it will make some money before I ever write it. There are still some that I write just because I want to, even though I know the chances of earning without any research are slim, but then I already know going into it not to expect much from it. I'm not trying any luck here, I'm earning a substantial amount of money and, if the trend continues, will eventually be able to stop doing work for clients and just do my own sites and affiliate sites like this one.

    I am slowly trying to get some more hubs on here about SEO, marketing, research, and targeting. Feel free to ask me any specific questions you might have and I'll write you a hub smile.

    Motivation: 1. Hubpages is the easiest publishing platform I have seen. The second best is wordpress of course. 2. It is easier to rank a page on hubpages on search engines.
    Aim of being on hubpages - to share ideas, help people and enjoy writing, while knowing at the same time that I am creating a residual income.
    HP is not get rich overnight scheme. It takes a while. As Wesman rightly said, make sure you are targeting the right keywords.

    Hope and ego.  Hope of making money.  Ego because I like showing off, er, I mean creating quality content.

    It's a great platform and community to be around. No matter if your just starting out or an experienced writer, Hubpages is a  a place to see the quality and craft of other people as well as the financial benefits.

    What motivates me to try this whole money making thing is the success of my friends. Before, I was completely unconcerned with making money here and was very vocal about that fact. This time around, though, I want to really try. I want to hear all of the advice from other hubbers and implement their suggestions. I want to see if I can make more than eighteen dollars this time.

    Well besides the money I guess it would be the passion for writing.

    Before eHow crashed and burned for writers there, I earned close to $1500 a month.  I believe if I could do it there, I can do it here.  It is just taking a heck of a long amount of time to see any real earnings over here.  My philosophy is to not plan on seeing any kind of real pocket change until I have published at least 100 hubs.
