Which HUBS generate more revenue? (Technology, health, horticulture, etc) Anyone have idea on this?
As you may know, I have been experimenting to see which does. This one:
has generated 23 sales so far this month (my impressions) , so I am going with technology.
I really like the way you've laid that hub out with the Amazon links beneath the text module rather than beside them. It looks sharp.
42 sales this month from 5 hubs like this $100 + they work like this
But the new hubpages adsense is messing with the layout, so you might need to take that into account.
If you flag so many sites for spamming and self promoting, would you mind telling me what the difference is here.
I thought the correct answer would be something like health or cooking.
I refer to http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/2473
Perhaps this says it all.
Generally speaking, what am I allowed to put into a hub?
Our objective with HubPages is to support authors that have the desire and intent to develop a readership on the HubPages site, and to contribute in a positive way to the HubPages community. If your intended use runs counter to this objective -- for instance, if you're sole purpose is to get back links for other sites or to promote or sell dubious products through your hubs -- then please stop using HubPages.
If you're hubs are flagged for violations, we generally will give you an opportunity to correct the problem and republish the hub. However, repeated violations will result in your account being closed and all your hubs being unpublished. If you are unsure if your hub meets our policies, we will be far more sympathetic if you contact us for clarification before publishing the hub.
Producing HUBS on technology is a great idea coz we get more traffic thru these hubz.
The difference is that this was posted in response to someone's question and I am just sharing my experiences at to what I have found to work.
Quite apart from that, I am unlikely to generate a sale from a hubpages user because most of them have their own affiliate accounts. If I had started a forum thread that said "hey all, come check out my great new hub its here." I would consider that to be self promotion. I am not looking for traffic from inside the site - it is worthless from the perspective of making money
Pretty much, hubpages take a dim view of anyone that does not make a contribution to the site and is here to promote an outside entity. Most of the ones I take exception to are people who join, post one hub that tells you what a clever internet marketer they are and then jump all over the forums asking you to look at their hub which is then filled with links to their own site.
Well your predisposition to flagging hubs I quote "I saw one similar the other day. I flagged it anyway. I don't know if it breaks the rules or not, but seeing as I was already there......."
and then I quote "If I had started a forum thread that said hey all, come check out my great new hub its here. I would consider that to be self promotion." And then post a promotional link directly to your hub where you have made 23 sales.
The link and the answer, in my opinion, was well within the context of the thread starters question.
If Mark had merely said "technology" it would be meaningless to me. I'd like to know how he came to that conclusion.
No threadjacking or spamming has taken place.
If perhaps he threw in a link to one of his hubs that had absolutely no sales then I'd raise an eyebrow in suspicion.
The simple fact is that hubpages make the decision as to what stays and goes. They specifically ask members to flag hubs that break their terms of service. I merely flag the ones that I think do so. If enough people flag the hub, the hubpages team take a look and make a decision. I have no part in that.
I am not sure why you find my comments to be condescending. I am sorry that you are incapable of making a distinction between the two.
If ou do not find the information I gave helpful in making a decision as to what hubs are likely to make money and what aren't I am not bothered, because there are plenty of members who will.
Judging by the amount of times this question or a variation of it comes up in the forums, I think I am providing some useful information - not promoting myself.
As I said earlier, hubpages internal traffic is a very poor revenue generator. This has also been discussed in another thread.
There is nothing wrong with adding a link to one of your hubs if you feel it is appropriate to the discussion.
Hmm But It was an answer to the question..
Anyways you don't expect a traffic from Hubpages Forums even you go out and start spamming so I believe Mark gave that link to give an example.
Here's what I mean. This forum thread looks like a genuine question, but when you visit his profile you find two hubs filled with affiliate links and they are both about how to make massive amounts of money online in a few minutes time.
Hey Mark are your toes flat yet? from being stepped on constantly?
Thank you very much for all your efforts and help. I think its time someone told you so.
Thanks Zsuzsy Bee. Toes still not flat yet, but a few more should do it
Mark, I am totally confused by the turn this thread took. I, for one, thought that you gave a relevant and helpful answer to a question and no self-promotion at all. And I appreciated it. Thanks!
I think Mark's got broad shoulders and I know he has a big heart!!
This Hub has generated some great feedback to my surprise.

Simply put, the ones with traffic and high paying ads.
For the first, go sign up with Wordtracker.
For the second, go open an Adwords account and use their pricing (Traffic Estimator) tool.
Well, most people here for some mysterious to me reason do not understand the value of keyword research and don't even want to hear about it. They prefer to guess, pray and hope
BTW, Jonathan has an excellent hub on the topic for beginners http://hubpages.com/hub/SEO-Optimizatio … d-Research
I think Mark is spot on with technology. I am new to Hubbing and to earning on line. I've experimented with fiction with an advertising focus and humor but unsurprisingly have earned nothing.
'How to's around Hubpages or Helium has paid a little and produced reasonable click through (but keywords are relatively low value)
Some success with more business-related stuff like presentation skills, creativity, innovation etc. but traffic has been lower.
I think finding topics/keywords with high traffic AND good click rates is tricky - but most Hubbers already know that!
