    Hi,  I am writing poems, it's my passion. But can I earn around $400-$500 a month by writing poems?

      No. You'll be lucky to earn 40 cents. You earn by attracting readers via search engines and other sources. People want to read articles that are educational, interesting and helpful. No one is looking for poetry.

        So what kind of content I should write?

      I am not sure if I can ever earn $400 - $500 a month at all! Yet alone with poems.

        Why so?

    I know raggededge already said it, but let me confirm. You absolutely cannot earn $400-$500 writing poetry. No one's ever maybe money writing poetry, not even in the days before the Internet. Except for maybe Ginsberg, who wrote something timely.

    But on the Internet, it has to get traffic, and poetry will get no traffic.

    You have to write high-quality, lengthy articles with titles that attract search engine traffic.

    I've written a lot of poetry in my life, none of it has made money.

      How many articles should I write minimum to start getting payouts each month?

        It's not about the quantity, it's about the quality and the traffic. Having said that, the more you write, the better chance you have of earning.

        Successful articles are on topics that people are searching for, written in perfect English, and are 'evergreen'.

        The Learning Center has more information.

    Making that amount would be quite the achievement and put you in the top 1% of hubbers.  Successful hubbers work hard to find topics they are expert in, that attract readers, and that attract hight CPM ads and Amazon commissions. Mostly things that are very useful to higher paying traffic, e.g. USA readers, people looking to buy things

    Hubpages isn't a good place to publish poems unless you offer an in-depth article to accompany the poems. Poems aren't easily searched online.

    Informative or infoentertainment articles do well and they should at least be a minimum of 800 words.

    One of my poems was published about 7 years ago and has garnered less than 200 views.

    I would need a drastic increase in daily views. Right now I get about 200 - 300 views a day.

    To make that kind of money I would need thousands of views. Probably over 5000 is my guess.

    It is possible though. But I would need to find the right subjects or write a lot more.

      Do you share your article on social media?

      1. theraggededge profile image98
        theraggededgeposted 16 months agoin reply to this

        Some people do well sharing on social media. Generally if their topics work well on Pinterest. Mostly the traffic is short lived. I've had days with massive amounts of views when someone has shared on Facebook, but it's fleeting. Gone within 24 hours.

        I have not recently. But I interact with some hubbers on Twitter semi-often.

      Yep... but that would be in 'normal' times. Right now... bleh sad

        I noticed that. At this point I want to get a monthly payout.

        I mostly write about the things I like. So perhaps not the best strategy but I get some views.

          We need more payouts now.

            Nope, it's going to remain at one per month.

    sorry to say, nope you will not be able to earn that much by writing poetry because that is not a niche category either.

    write articles regarding food, health, covid 19, safety

    i am sure these topics will garner more money than poetry.

      Noooo! Not Covid-19. Please. We've got enough CV-19 articles from unqualified people.
