    What is the best way to improve earnings for a high-traffic Hub that isn't meeting its potential?

    The high traffic is very affirming and welcome! But if would be even more welcome if the earnings reflected the traffic numbers.

    Hey Aficionada,

    It's good to hear that you are getting a lot of traffic with your Hubs, and that your success on HubPages is burgeoning as we speak. And while I would often recommend that you write more high quality Hubs, on very high paying keywords, I think now that this is simply not the case.

    So instead, I'm going to inform you of the ratio in which HubPages calculates your earnings. With every 1,000 views that gain when on HubPages, you are only credited for around 600 of those views, and the rest go straight to HubPages. Why? Because they do need paying for their service too, and without this income split they couldn't possibly afford to maintain the site, and keep it running at optimum speed.

    What does this mean for you? That while your Hubs may be gaining a lot of traffic at the moment, you need to be looking to either improving those Hubs, or integrating the Amazon widget, to maximise your potential income. (Or the Ebay widget.)

    Hope this helps!

      What is an Amazon or Ebay widget?

      An Amazon/Ebay widget is the capsule that you can display on your Hub, that advertises Amazon and Ebay products to your visitors. Just look at the Hubtool and then drag and drop where you want each capsule to go.

    It is very difficult to answer,till I am trying to remedy this. I am not a hubworm ,but I am in the strong opinion that to be a good hubber one should be a hubpageworm.It should be well known about the subject which you are trying to write on your hub which should be interested  in the eyes of the public.You should be well aware of the facts of add earning programme on hubpage.You should read  http://lauryallan.hubpages.com/hub/A-Hu … iment-2012 and http://cloudexplorer.hubpages.com/hub/H … n-hubpages to know well because of the detailled explanation shared by to good hubbers  http://lauryallan.hubpages.com/ and http://cloudexplorer.hubpages.com/ who has shared their experiences from top to bottom. Please make me aware of your improvement ,I will be glad to know.Thank you very much.

    Incorporate links to your other hubs within that successful hub.  Since the HP Ads program pays by views, anything that channels traffic to more of your pages will increase your earnings overall.
