Why am I making only .20 a day?
I have been on hubpages 6 months, my writing score between 94-97. I get close to 100 views a day and have close to 16,000 views. I regularly work on hubs and keywords.
Hi carol7777, how frustrating. I get up to 800 plus visitors a day and I'm getting $1.50 to 2.50 plus a day. The views used to be 1,300 or more a day, earning about $3 to $5 dollars. At times, it depends on how much the keywords you are using cost. Try and check from adwords, if possible, to know how much the keywords are worth. The hubscore has no relationship with your earning. Wishing you the best.
If you are for 6 months and earning $0.2 a day now is not bad. but I can see that you have written more than 100 articles. So it can be low earnings. But it also depends on which type of niche you write about. Because CPM rate varies on the such basis. And I think keyword working is not enough. You have to work also on backlinking process. It is the heart of Article. Most of writers earning desired amount are working on backlinks much more. I am not one of them earning much. But I hope This information will help you to meet your desired goal soon.
Best of luck, carol :-)
Pinterest, Facebook would be considered backlinks.
yes carol backlinks. This is needed for every hub. So that lord google can know that your articles are connceted with reputed websites. You can use facebook, twitter, orkut, google+, reddit, stumble upon, digg, my space. You can also go for articles
Hi Carol, I think we are all sick and tired of food, every TV show you see is about cooking, we want to explore the world more and open up to things that are new and explosive!.....I'm no better but have been off this site for so long now.
post your hub links to Stumbleupon, DIGG, Delicious, Redgage, Reddit, Rate It All- these are backlinks
100 view is really not enough
You will need like 5000 views to make $300 per month.
So what that means is that you might need to have like 50 hubs each with a hundred views daily before you can really do well.
You will need to work harder.
I got discouraged a while ago too but i have been reading testimonies and i believe more quality hubs and more works will yield.
In order to understand why you are only making 20 cents a day there are a few factors you need to understand.
1. Are you on the HP Adprogram or just Google Adsense? Since you mentioned views etc I'm thinking you are on the Adprogram and are being paid per impression. However, you are allocated a certain amount per 1000 views. Since this varies on average between $2 - $7 per 1000 views. If you are only getting 100 views a day then you are going to be making a tiny amount. If you don't understand CPM etc then please read this hub I wrote for hubbers to explain how many views they need to achieve an income from HubPages. http://lauryallan.hubpages.com/hub/hubp … real-story
2. If you want more visitors then there are a few things you need to do. You need to do keyword analysis and target specific people who will want to read an article you have written. From the articles you have written there are very few people who will be searching on Google to find out about the lunch you had with another hubber, or your hubbing vacation. Sorry but that's the truth. Those are nice things to write for other hubbers but they won't bring you lots of views or targetted traffic that you can turn into money. Most hubbers will not click on ads or buy things from your hubs. They are there to make money, not spend it, and they are not supposed to click ads and can be banned for it.

3. Competition - You need to think of your hubs as store fronts in a long line of store fronts. Hopefully, this will make it easier to understand competition. Everyone on your street is selling the same thing, example apples. (This is what happens when you get ranked on Google - all the similar results are listed on top of each other and passing traffic has to decide which link to click on just like they would decide which store to go to). Now you are a new store and you are competing against these bigger stores and they have been established and have lots of customers and repeat customers. They also have a good rep and word of mouth is working for them. This is like backlinks and social media online. Now you can;t just go out and find high traffic topics that have lots of competition. That's the opposite side to what you are doing now.
4. Instead find something in the middle - lots of traffic but not as much competition. Try top 10 lists in something you know about and that people are looking for. Hope this helps!
You must not be getting many readers from the search engines. In my opinion you should be writing in a niche area (and not about Hubpages--although you have a lot of followers for only being here 6 months they must not be reading your hubs if you only have 100 views per day). I really do not know what that subject will be, but if you concentrate on something you know, and link the articles to each other, other backlinks will come naturally, and your readership from Google will go up.
There is some good information abot niches from the hubber thepheonixlives. Lauryallan makes some good suggestions also so you should take the time to read her links.
I am only making a few pennies a week, have been on HP 3 months and just reached 2000 views. My writing score has been in the 90s most of the time. It 's a good thing I didn't get into this thinking I would make a bunch-it's not happening. However, I feel it has been beneficial to me as I am now enjoying writing after a few months of not creating anything. Have a great day!
Hi Carol, there are a few factors that'll determine how many daily hits you get. People think it's always about writing on popular topics (i.e., football - just about everyone under the sun likes a sport of some kind...), but this is not always the case. Focus on writing good and unique hubs and this might increase your daily hits. Additionally, if you've only been with HP for 6 months, then you need to give it more time.
Looking at the titles of your hubs, I'm guessing it's because they are not very well SEO optimized. I'm getting 356 views a day and I'm lucky if I make a single dollar a day. Recently I've been getting around 250 views last week and only making ~50 cents.
I've been on a month or two less than you, and you're getting twice the average traffic I get. (I don't follow as many people as I should, probably). I've managed to get several links from blogs, and I write about things that I hope will make the definitive Web article on the topic. I also promote my better hubs on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.
I didn't go into this expecting a living income, or even a substantial portion of my income. My expectation was to *hopefully* get up to the point where I'm making $60-$80 a month without much maintenance. I'm up to making about $15 a month after 4 1/2 months-- which I had hoped would be slightly better by now-- but I'm satisfied overall. Maybe if I got a Hub of the Day or Rising Star hub I could get a push toward more traffic-- some people have reported that getting a featured article made a substantial difference in their traffic.
I'm earning an average of .60 a day for a month now despite having only 20+ hubs. This is a perfect proof that quality defeats quantity. Try to improve your hub titles and research for long-tail keywords with high google views. Including pictures in your hubs and adding descriptions can also help improve your hub's performance. Good luck!
Carol, you are a terrific member of Hubpages and are doing a great job of writing too. Lots of the advice given here is very helpful. To get more money from writing here you need to have more views and that means getting views from search engines. One thing to know is that Google takes about 6 months to "discover" a Hub, so it is a bit early to get worried yet. I've been here about 19 months now (250 Hubs) and now I do get steady traffic, but that didn't start until about 8 months into Hubbing. I'd strongly suggest signing up for the apprenticeship program since that teaches you how to write good searchable topics.
Hi! Focus on writing quality hubs or hubs that people might search on search engines, DIY articles, recipes, tutorials etc... My hubs are about recipes and they are doing good. My earnings and traffic started to rise after a year. It really takes time.

Does anyone have a good idea of how many hubs I would need in order to make at least $50 a month through the Hubpages Ad program? 100? 200? Anyone achieved this monetary amount per month yet?

I have read somewhere here that google search engines take into account the page-views to compute ranking. Is it advisable to delete non-performing Hubs, those with 0 pageviews a day, as a way to increase traffic in an attempt to increase ranking?How do you deal with low-performing hubs?thanks in...

To meet the 'quality' standard to avoid hubs getting sleepy ZZZd just follow these rules:=> A minimum of 1500 words of truly informative, well-written, useful content => A minimum of 5 relevant, high-resolution, properly-attributed photos (ideally your own) => 2 videos (ideally your own)...
