    How to improve the revenue potential of an article?

    I am sure lots of different people will have different thing that work for them. I feel finding relevant product to put in your articles helps.  Most of my writing revolves around collectables and other geeky hobbies so that is what words best for me.
    If revenue is your only goal you will also want to write about popular topics. Me writing about Star Was does not have as big of a following as people writing about making money online. However, I write for the enjoyment first, practice second, and revenue is a distant third.  I just assume if I do good work it will pay off over time.

    This is the focus of the Apprenticeship Program, and you might want to consider joining if you really want to learn how to build revenue. I'm starting my third month, and I've already learned several tools that help.

    Assuming you have an article in mind (choosing topics is a whole other topic!), here are some initial keys:
    1. Keyword research to improve titles & subtitles without keyword stuffing.
    2. Exellent, well-written, well-illustrated hubs with interesting, humorous, or beautiful relevant images.
    3. Backlinking from an active presence on other social media sites.

      I thought you couldn't "just join" the apprenticeship program...that you had to be "invited" to join.   Is that not the case?

    The answer is really the obvious one: write hubs that provide quality information and that are also longer than at least 500 words. Do some keyword research, write hubs that include those and add these words as tags. Come up with related titles that also raise other people's attention who will read your article.
    Don't forget to include some relevant pictures, additional videos, polls, etc to improve the content of your article.
    And as Sid wrote: if you can, do some backlinking: share your hubs on FB, Twitter, etc. to attract more readers.
    Basically, that's all.
    I hope I could help smile

    Traffic of course is one of the big determinants of the revenue potential, but in some ways it is the most difficult to control.  However, traffic is not the only aspect of making money, some hubs will earn a lot more per thousand views than other hubs.

    The topic of the article is also important, some topics pay a lot more than others.  Ads are displayed on your hub that match your keywords and some ads are worth a lot more when clicked or when viewed than others.  Making money is not the only topic that pays well.  The Adwords keyword tool which is free to use, will give you information about cost per click of various keywords.  Under the stats on each of your hubs there will also be an estimation of the commercial potential of your hub.  Most of my hubs are $$$, which I think is the average, but a few are $$ and a couple have 4$ signs.  If you want to have a better rate per thousand views (RPM) you should find out what keywords pay well and target them. This should give you a better revenue per Adsense click or a better payout per 1000 impressions from the Ad program.

    I am really bad at getting any sales out of Amazon, but some people make a lot of money from them.  I think hubs that are specifically written to get sales from Amazon, either review hubs or ones that describe how to deal with a specific problem that involves buying a product from Amazon are ones that convert well.  Just writing an informational hub and adding an Amazon module will probably not result in many sales.

    If you are talking about improving hubs that you have already written, I noticed an increase in page views, and hence revenue, after using the title tuner feature on several of my existing hubs.
    Also backlinking, including links to my other hubs and sharing articles on other sites has helped.

    I am sooo following this one!! I need to find a way to add stuff on my photos like ads etc. Because they get a lot of attention. I got like 43,000 hits on my 7 wonders the world and only total I have earned 119.00.. I have not advertised with google yet , but I wonder how much revenue I would get if I paid to advertise?

    Edit the article or hub and keep it updated and fresh. You can also check the search terms to see if maybe one fits in the title or article.

    Sometimes it helps to "just write it" and put it online and see how it does without a lot of tweaking.   I have been surprised that some articles I thought would well, have not, and others the reverse. 

    Personally, I think niches are the secret key.
