Why are my hubpages earnings as low as a dollar per month?
I have 14 hubs. All of them are featured and all these together earn just around 1 dollar. Is something wrong with my hubs?
My guess is that you just need to have more of them. Waaaaay more.
They look fine, but there are a few points that might help you:
1. That number of hubs would be okay for about a month. You need to write more to generate more interest and earn more. Do you have more on the Excel or other subjects?
2. You should make the titles a lot more user friendly. No one is going to search for "Excel-User Tutorial: How to Use Excel" but there are a lot of searchers for "How to use excel". Marisa Wright, Simone, and others have written on this subject on the forums, so you might want to take a look.
Good luck. It is slow starting out so you just need to stay focused, positive, and as Clark mentions, write WAAAAAY more.
Beautifully explained.. Thanks DrMark, your reply will help me too
Thanks for the detailed answer DrMark. I will certainly look into those hubs that you have suggested. And probably I might have to rework on my hub titles too. Thanks again.
Well nehanatu86,I am a new -comer ,here but all the thousands of words I have read in the hub forums etc., seems that recently Google(Adsense) or even Hubpages management,are getting much more 'skingy' than ever before,and lots of hubbers I read are thinking seriouslly of 'migrating' with their hub articles over to other sites/
I'm in the same boat as you. I only have 10 hubs, and I barely pulled in $2.50 for the entire month. I think it's definitely quantity vs quality, because some of my best one's just sit, while others soar. Hope that helps!
Nothing is wrong with your hubs. You need to write more hubs that could catch the interest of the public. For example, health, food, science, review of a product of software. These topics are well sought in google and hubpages too. I wrote 96 hubs for 3 years and had just reached USD$ 13 per month. Took a loooooong time to reach this mark.
My answer is really nothing new. You will just need to keep up your writing and keep involved in the community to keep drawing attention to your work. You can stop and rest on your passive earnings at any time, but if you want them to continue growing, you have to keep working hard.
I'm just getting started up again myself after taking a two year break from HubPages. I'm only up to a few dollars a month with 59 hubs. Just be patient and I'm sure your hard work will eventually pay off. You never know which new hubs will get to be hub of the day
