I signed up for the Earning Program a little over a year ago (before, I used to only earn through Amazon and Adsense) and while I am seeing earnings every day, I've only been able to reach payout twice.
I've tried to update my hubs, use interesting titles and good photos, but I still find that my earnings are low - I earn a few pennies a day.
I'm not expecting to earn millions overnight, but is there any way that I could increase my daily earnings, to maybe $1 per day or thereabouts? So that I could reach payout at least every two months or so. I'm writing and publishing new hubs, but I'm not sure if I'm doing enough.
What strategies do you guys use? I would really appreciate some tips. Thank you.
me too, I earn pennies daily but I have to admit that I am lazy to spread out words. You could share your url link of your hub to social medias to increase the traffic
I was like that for ages, earning only pennies a day before I found a niche that worked for me. There are a lot of video games articles posted here every day, but a couple of my articles get several hundred views a day because they offered new insight or a guide to a particularly difficult quest.
It's really hard to gauge what articles will do well. Of course, getting them to a niche site is a must. After that, it's all about your Google ranking. Before you write an article, search the topic you're writing about. If there are already loads of articles on the same topic, how can you make yours unique? Ideally, the more specific you can be, the better.
Other things I do is post on Twitter and Pinterest. I also posted one on Reddit once and it got 10,000 views in one day! It's all about writing what people want to read, and offering valuable expertise on the subject.
Good points, there are some clues about which articles will do well (like how much competition they have), but sometimes you'll be surprised by which will (or won't) get a high volume of traffic.
I looked over you topics and am wondering if you have been checking to see how much competition you have for them. Most are on very common topics that tons of people write about, so unless you have something special or extra to offer, there is no way you're going to get views on them, even though they may be good articles. For example, I would love to write about Breast Cancer (I'm a survivor), but people who want info on this topic mostly will go first to the American Cancer Society site and will never even see my article.
Topics that generally do well are very specific, answer a question that people have and do not have a lot of competition. Two million is the max you should be willing to compete with, and even that is a high number.
For example, how to write a good class paper has 1,300,000,000 results showing!
Pick a topic you really know a lot about, such as a particular sport or hobby, and then offer your readers information about it that they cannot find elsewhere. Then you'll start getting readers.
One more tip: 44 is normally not nearly enough in terms of the number of articles people generally need in order to have Google rank them well. You should have at least 100 well written interesting and informative hubs if you want people to read your work.

This is what I found using ubersuggest. (https://neilpatel.com/ubersuggest/) (I only looked at one article, but this was one that was chosen for a niche site, so hopefully it was one of your best.)
Your article answers but a few of those issue covered in this topic.
If you want to get more readers, have your article come up more often on the search pages, and improve your search rank. The first way to do that is to make sure that your article is useful. Find out what people are looking for, using ubersuggest or google suggest, and then edit your article. If I ask a question, you have the answer.
If your article answers the questions readers are interested in, they are not going to bounce out and go look for an answer elsewhere. Your page rank will go up when you have more people reading your page and finding the answer they want.
Make sure that ALL of your articles are good enough to be moved to a niche site. If they are stuck on HP, they are not going to have a good page rank and you will not get much traffic. To move your other articles, you will need to do some editing and then submit them every 14 days to HP.
This is going to take some work, but you are not asking for much so should be able to do this easily.
Agreed. The niche sites really help. Additionally, finding searchable topics as well as keywords that ping those topics is important. There are some nice free tools to help with this (like ubersuggest).
When I initially started, I wrote over several subjects and paid attention to which ones consistently got views. Those became my staples. But again, if you can get to the niche sites, odds are good you'll see some steady traffic.
Cardia, I took a look at your "7 Things You Probably Didn't Know about Barbados" article and found it interesting and well-written. I think the biggest problem with it getting traffic may be that it's still on hubpages.com. I've had articles that were getting very little love on hubpages.com begin to draw decent traffic once they were moved to a niche site. If you haven't done so, I'd strongly suggest that you submit any articles still on hubpages.com to be moved to a niche site. You may need to do some editing to make them eligible to be moved; for example, I'm sure the editors will strip out your Amazon capsule on Barbados guide books, but that's a price well worth paying.

Am a newbie, barely clocked a week, so don't kill me for asking about earnings, but how much traffic is required on the articles for someone to have any earnings on HubPages Earnings Program?. I have two featured articles and haven't yet linked my earnings program to my Google AdSense account.

Is it true that the 60/40 model only applies after HubPages pays their expenses? Because I have expenses too... I don't see why we should suffer because HubPages wants 40% to be pure profit AFTER their expenses.
