    Hi guys and gals. I used to be a prolific hubber a few years back and made a decent side income. What's it like now income wise.

      Pretty good now that Hubpages has the network sites. Last month was the best ever for me smile

      The key is to get your hubs to a standard that they are moved to those sites.

      Really good. However, you need to get your hubs featured and on the niche sites. Levelskip is the gaming one I believe.

    Thanks guys. Network sites!! Sounds Intriguing
    Many of my older gaming hubs had well over 100k views so I'm hoping I can re-establish that kind of following again. Where can I find out about these networks etc.?

      You can't choose to have your work moved to any of the network sites. New hubs are considered automatically. Old ones can be submitted manually at the rate of one every 14 days.

      You can see the list here: http://hubpages.com/ They are in light greeny-blue down the right-hand side of the page.

      Good luck and welcome back. The niche sites are gold right now smile when compared to HP post panda. I wasn't here pre-panda so I can't say much about that period.

        Yes I was here pre panda and was making quite good money but then that halved at least due to the panda era. Need to get back into it as really enjoyed it and was probably one of the better gaming writers on this site, Looking forward to getting back to writing and seeing my earnings go back up, I haven't written for about 4 years but got a payout in January so it shows I should get back to it really

          It's like you need to start from scratch as only two of your articles are featured and of those two, none are on the niche sites. Working on your hubs is definitely worth it smile Looking forward to reading your articles. Do you have any on AOE 2? hehe.

            Lol no none on AOE I'm afraid I'm more of a fifa and cod guy. Although loving the division now it's had some decent updates. I will work on some of my hubs but they are so old now I'm not sure they are relevant. Thanks for the support though

    Ok I'll update some of my older gaming hubs. Just as not so many people are playing them I didn't think it would be worth my time updating them

    1. lobobrandon profile image89
      lobobrandonposted 22 months agoin reply to this

      Check your main keywords in Google trends https://trends.google.com/trends/ if people are still searching for them, then update them else there is no point.

      Well, we know that at least one hubber earns in excess of $10k per month. Does that inspire you? It did me smile

      You can make several thousand a month but it is going to take a lot of work starting out and a lot more time. You need to keep writing more and make sure that all of your articles (both the old ones and anything new that you write) answer all of the questions that anyone has about the subject. You can use Google suggest or ubersuggest to find what other subjects you need to cover relevant to your main keyword.
      After you have written your article, check the front page of Google and look at all of the hubs that are rated at the top. Are they covering something that you are not? If your article is not exceptional, and better than everything that is on that page, you will not make it there. If you do not make it to the front page your traffic will be dismal.

        This + answerthepublic.com would set you up well smile

        1. DrMark1961 profile image96
          DrMark1961posted 22 months agoin reply to this

          I tried that one after Eric suggested it but did not find any suggestions that were not already on Google Suggest or ubersuggest. The advantage of ubersuggest over that program is that it also gives you some search numbers, so hopefully I can concentrate on keywords that have a lot more traffic, and not those that see only 10 searches a month.
          That was a big advantage in those semrush spreadsheets that you sent to me. I could pick the words at the top. (I guess it is impossible to answer all of the questions all of the time.)

            theraggededgeposted 22 months agoin reply to this

            Ah, but you don't put the whole title in. Just the topic... then you get zillions (if you're lucky) of questions related to the topic. From there, you can get ideas for titles and other related articles. I loves it, I do big_smile

              DrMark1961posted 22 months agoin reply to this

              I only added the significant keywords. For example for the article I was writing about "First Aid for Your Dogs Injured Cranial Cruciate Ligament", I just used "injured cruciate ligament". The only thing it did give me different was the various location alternatives, such as "Cruciate Ligament Repair Australia".

                theraggededgeposted 22 months agoin reply to this

                I tried 'dog cruciate ligament' and got lots. Don't forget to scroll down the page smile

                I download them to spreadsheets so I can go back to them often for keywords and subtitles.

  7. Titia profile image92
    Titiaposted 22 months ago

    And if you update old hubs, make sure to follow the today's guidelines like capitalizing all titles and subtitles. You'll find them in the Hub Help center. They've changed quite a bit lately.

    Thanks again for all the help guys. P.s always willing to share what I earn now and what I used to earn 4or5 years ago. Not sure I'm allowed to by hubpages though

    1. Jean Bakula profile image93
      Jean Bakulaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

      Where are all your hubs? I just see two. I hope you didn't delete. Do they just need updating? It's not so bad.

      The grammar and capitalization is important now, they are so picky. They don't want a lot of Amazon capsules unless you write about your personal experiences with the product. The hubs have to be Featured, but it's not a lot of steps. They also prefer longer hubs now, or at least Google does. The pictures have to be the whole width of the page for those who read hubs on their phones. I still don't think a lot of people read long things on phones. Titles of books, songs, probably video games need to be in italics, or check the TOS.

      Good luck. I doubt you will make what you did, but maybe you can come close.

        No didnt delete, I have about 190ish as far as I know but havent written for at least 4 years so only 2 are featured the rest need updating or virtually re-writing, But in the middle of writing a new hub and will update some of my hubs when I get chance.

          Jean Bakulaposted 22 months agoin reply to this

          You could bring in some money faster if you fixed up some of the stuff you already wrote. But if inspiration struck, and you are writing something new, go for it!

  9. lobobrandon profile image89
    lobobrandonposted 22 months ago

    I recently used Ubersuggest to get the main keyword of my recent article (first one in over a year) and then, I used answerthepublic to get a lot of questions. My latest hub: Tomato plant care is over 5k words. I got some more stuff to add to it though. But before all that, I'm now off to put in a table of contents.

    SEMRush is the best once your page ranks, as you have seen. Ubersuggest does give you some really good keywords. Answerthepublic shows you exactly what people are asking. So match the keywords from ubersuggest, use that as your main H2 heading and answer the questions from answerthepublic as h3 headings (just a rule of thumb, tweak it as necessary).

    This way you cover up almost everything on the topic, and at the end of the day, this is what constitutes being an authority on the topic.

    But to each his own smile

      DrMark1961posted 22 months agoin reply to this

      Sorry for this "noobie" question, but can you exlplain how you set up H3 headings in your hub?

      1. lobobrandon profile image89
        lobobrandonposted 22 months agoin reply to this

        You can just choose the setting. Highlight text and choose H3 heading instead of paragraph. Or alternatively, edit the HTML. I edit the HTML when I put in h4 headings.

        1. DrMark1961 profile image96
          DrMark1961posted 22 months agoin reply to this

          I understand how to do this using HTML, but can it be done with the HP text capsule. Is that what you mean when you said to hightlight the text and choose H3 heading?

          1. lobobrandon profile image89
            lobobrandonposted 22 months agoin reply to this

            Yup that is what I mean.
