Here's a few tips:
1) Create URLs that are meaningful.
2) Choose Titles which aren't misleading.
3) Write about what you know.
4) Don't copy and paste content from elsewhere and try and pass it off as your own work.
Traffic, as rumbling said, is very important. Even moreso, you'll want to attract targeted traffic that is interested in the topic you're writing about. This is where keyword research comes into play: find keywords that have a good search to competition ratio and are something that you might be able to rank in. Also, consider looking for more expensive keywords. You'll hardly make any money from 10,000 hits at 5 cents a click (about 7.5 bucks with a 1.5% ctr.)
If you write hubs with good and original content, then they will rank up and attract traffic from hubpages itself, which is also useful. Example: You write a very good hub on the ATI HD 5870 and it achieves a score of ~85. This hub will then (depending on how relevant it is) show up on the related hubs tab on, you guessed it, related hubs. This (as I've gathered from my short experience) can generate 10-100+ (320 being the highest for me) additional views a day.
To get good traffic, you'll either need some really good hubs or a lot of mediocre hubs. If you want significant traffic, however, you'll want a lot of really good hubs!
would emailing hubs to friends etc. help get traffic? i've made 1 cent since i've started and i know i need to write more but what else would you recommend to get traffic?
This I try and avoid.
The Internet is a lot bigger than your circle of friends, work colleagues and family. And if any of them get it into their head that they'll be doing you a favour by clicking on your Adsense ads... you know how that's going to end.
1)unique website/catchy website
4)more traffic more money
Try writing more hubs, I write 1-2 at a time when I do, each being good unique quality, and optimized for search, Then I interlink them with other hubs and an RSS feed! Good luck!
I am still an amateur at hubbing.
I joined 12 days ago, my Author Score 85.
I have joined Google Adsense, how do you know when or if they have started paying you. Should I be doing anything else besides joining up with Google Adsense?any advice would be most welcome thanks BB
@chhoeh - your single hub is all about how to make money - surely you know LOL
@beuatybabe - you need to write on topics which people are searching for - organic /search traffic are the people who will click your ads. That's what a keyword is - use it your title -write a hub and then create backlinks to push your hub up the search engines
I wrote a hub all about it, just take a look on my profile and you should be able to find it under "Money"
i ve written hubs also plus my blog which is on my profile is all about adsense,
to make money from google adsense you need to have plenty of traffick, when you have traffik flowing to your site you should start making money, There are high paying niches/keywords
eg insurance is around £6 per click (thats what advertisers pay) probably giving you £3 per click check it out there is a list of high paying keywords there also
Here are my tips for increasing earnings,
Try writing about something unique and obviously that you know a lot about. If it is unique, the less competition you will have and the more success should come.
I am planning on revising all old hubs and start writing longer hubs.
And once you've done everything that has been mentioned in this forum thread, head on over to the religious thread, take your pick, there are many and say a prayer.... amen, but choose the right god, because you don't want terrorists or the alkeseltzer to come and whip your botty with a candy cane stick...stop cruelty to candy cane sticks and recycle them for the poor little mice who have a little trouble walking to the shops for their cheese sandwiche!
First, sign up with AdSense. then drive traffic, then get paid.
In addition to writing about what you already know you can also write about stuff you are learning anyway. An example is this: I recently tore a ligament in my ankle and have been scouring the net for as much info about what is going on with my ankle as I can. I have found that most sites just say the same things over and over and there are things the paramedics told me that I cannot find repeated online. I figure if I am disappointed with search results then others may feel the same so my challenge is to say something new and offer something slightly different for people in similar situations to me. If I can offer something that I have learned and experienced in a personal way I may be able to help someone else in the same situation to understand what their body is experiencing.

I seem to have come to HP just before all the changes. I have put in almost F/T hours on the days I write my hubs. I've read whole books, not only the ones I review, but for material for my hubs. I think what I write is well written and informative. I kept hoping as I got more readers, the money...

I did a little experiment with opting into the EC program for three months. To begin with,last year one of my better performing hubs become Editor's Choice. That hub was getting an average of 20o+ views per day, peak. The day after being selected as EC, the views dropped to zero. I watched it for a...

How long does it take to make significant money with google adsense?I'm average 2 hubs every 3 days, and for the first three weeks am making little. I am a very patient person, but just curious on how much longer I have until I start to see 'real' money.

I attempt to try my best to improve my traffic and increase my earnings of Google Adsense, but it seems that I can still earn only a little per day. Do you have any tip and suggestion on how to get more traffic for your hubs at Hubpages?
