    Are you looking to make a living by solely hubpages? If that is the case you may want to reconsider.  Hubpages is an information community where you could earn money in only 4 different ways from what I have found. 1. Adsense, 2. Amazon Promotions, 3. Affiliate Promotional links (as long as it is not redirected or using Clickbank.com) and 4. eBay earnings. 

    Everything is about traffic on here unless you are posting hubs for informational purposes.  Something I would suggest is the following: Set up a main website (free or paid) and use it in your HP profile this way you can began to set up an online footprint.  Next write some posts that link externally and internally to your hub.  For example use another hubbers link (meaning link to that hub) for internal linking (basically related articles to direct hubbers to that they may be interested in.  Then when you write a hub tweet about it on Twitter, and post it on FB. This will begin your traffic generation tactics.  Just try to make a link machine with your hubs. 

    Also make sure that you are using targeted keywords.  If all else fails and you want to direct traffic, do a PPC campaign for instant traffic.

    Hope that helps you out.  I am sorry that I have not given you 3 best tips to earn money on hubpages because I don't rely on making money from hubpages.

      Thank you UpixxIndustries!  On the contrary, your advice was great: linking, online footprint, and keywords.  I am not planning on instant traffic or using Hubpages as my sole income, but would love if it could become a nice bonus each month.

    I'm not a newbie, but I certainly don't feel like I'm much past it. For the first few months I floundered here, but started taking it more seriously in Sept. and monetized and tried to improve my work. I'm having some success, hopefully more will come. I can share what I've learned.

    1- read all HP guidelines and suggestions and follow them, check out great hubbers and study their hubs, read the advice by successful veterans in the forums, etc.-- there is plenty of great advice out there that will help you.

    2- keep publishing as high quality hubs as you can make. Get on a regular schedule. Keep building on it steadily. For me, having a niche really helped because people looking up information on that topic go from one page to another to another and come back later. I get a good deal of return traffic, which is good.

    3- have realistic expectations. Vast majority of people will never make a living from HP. For many, just hitting that $50 payout every month is considered success. You may be the rare exception who's hubs go viral and get millions of views-- I wish you luck in that but it's not something that should be counted on. Still following 1 & 2 might help you achieve that.

    I make my full-time living as a writer, but HP makes up about 1% of my  income. I'd love it to increase, I'd write way more Hubs and make more accounts for different niches. But I don't have high hopes of that happening anytime soon.

    It's going to take time to get established and get views. Even if your networking and checking out hubs and forums on here, it will still take time before you start earning. In the first year I was sporadic on here and didn't earn anything. I write on here for fun, not for a living, so I view it differently than the professionals on here who do it for a living.

    I think if your hubs are good, you get people to read them outside Hubpages as well as hubbers and have good keywords, then you will get somewhere. Do get a pinterest.com account if you don't have one already. If you have a particular niche and post links on there, it will get repinned a lot. smile

    I'm not big on keywords, I write on what I know about, but if you pick a few  particular topics you know extremely well and write about it, then they could start earning you cash. Best of luck with everything. smile

    I would recommend that with regards to making money on hubpages you consider using affiliate links (though not click bank) amazon capsule, eBay capsule and Google AdSense.
    I'm afraid there is no short cut which I am aware of to increase the amount of money you can earn on hub pages beyond Internet marketing to drive traffic to your hubs, hence more exposure and therefore money!
    Hope this helps.
