Hi Rachelle, I don't do recipes simply because I am not a good cook. But there are lots of hubbers doing recipes, so I suppose recipes make money. Look at the traffic of hubbers who write recipes, and judge for yourself. You can go to their profile and check the accolade on traffic. For example,
crazyhorsesghost - this hubber writes on several different topics, but mostly on food and recipes. - 1 million views plus so far
Good luck and happy hubbing!
I do recipes but they don't make much money. At first they will get a lot of views but hubs that receive consistent views are hubs about internet, computers, health, SEO and stuff like that. You can do the recipes but unless the recipe is exceptional you can't depend only on them to make you money.
One way of checking the potential earning power of a hub is to click on stats and then select the hub metrics tab. A hub with three or more dollar signs will make you more money.
I would think the recipe/food articles that link to Amazon would reap some rewards from that affiliate program. Just my guess. I know from experience elsewhere, that most people looking for recipes simply print off the recipe. The piece might get loads of page views, but they likely don't convert.
That said , I think I'll try a few to test it.
In my experience across these types of sites, recipes make less money than any other type of article. I'd stay away from them!

I was just wondering what hubbers considered as "good traffic" to one of your hubs? Some of my hubs only get a handful of reads a week, while others get consistently 75-100 reads a day. After looking at my...

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting...
