I would like to ask if it's worth it to post my articles here for passive income. Helpful tips are kindly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
You have actually got to do the work in order to get paid. Once you have built up a decent collection of articles on topics people are searching for, you can take a break and the earnings will keep coming in. However, interest usually dwindles over time and you have to keep writing in order to maintain earnings. Also articles need regular editing to keep them relevant.
Lealey, you know what passive incowe is, right? Like money deposite in a bank earning you quarterly or half yearly income. And as long as the original deposite is maintained and more money added to, interest continued to be earned. At hubpages, passive income is the goal. At HubPages, you must write quality article as required or qualify to be on a niche site. It will earn you the passive income. And as the the raggededged has said, write regularly and update your articles to keep the money coming in. Welcome to HP.
Yes you can. It takes time and you have to write articles that get traffic. It varies how many articles you have to write, because it depends on whether you write articles that get traffic. Seriously consider the titles you give to articles, whether they reflect what people search for on the Net. Write content that is easy to easy and has significant information. Structure your articles so that they are easy on the eyes, with images and break up text into digestible pieces.
Many people do it, but it is not a publish and forget principle.
I work very hard here to earn money. I update all of my articles every year to keep Google happy and sending traffic to them as well as write new articles. To give you an idea, in January and February, I updated over 200 articles. So far this year, I have written 54 more articles. By the end of the year, I anticipate having about 300 articles all of which will need to be updated in 2021.
As Miebakagh says, the only true passive income is compound interest in a bank account.
Make sure you write good quality evergreen niche articles that become competitive for keywords and start to gain high levels of new visitors who will in time become returning regulars.
You'll need to build up a stock of high ranking articles, which can take hard work over months, even years, but once you're established the theory is that you can earn money consistently.
Passive income is perhaps now defined as money that is earned whilst being relatively relaxed about work time and input - being able to sit back and watch the dollars accumulate once the tough grind is over is a bit of a far-fetched dream. Some veterans on HP with hundreds of good articles might be able to do this!
I'm always adding new articles and editing the old. Not there yet but climbing the mountain.
I want every new hubbers or newbies to seriously noted this. Making passive income on hubpages, or creating a product is hard work. You don't just write 20 articles and then go skippy-dimpky! You've got to write and write. Title-friendly and search-friendly articles that search engine spiders cannot avoid.
I am only here a few months, so I probably should not give my two cents, but here goes anyway. I am probably writing and reading more than most newbies here. I do see a big difference between my first month and my second month in earnings. However, it is going to take a long time, and my articles are a satisfactory quality thus far. I am impressed with the editors, so if you want to improve it is a good place to write.
Yes it is worth it but you must work hard and produce quality work.
I think it is worth the time. But it does take time and effort. I enjoy what I write about though.
I am putting in so much effort just to get to $50 a month. If I ever do it won't feel passive to me at that point.
I suppose though I could stop writing and money will eventually accumulate and I would get paid. About three times a year or something like that.
The thing is though some my hubs could become out of date so I would have to make edits eventually.
Years ago, HubPages was an excellent method of earning passive income. I had an account here some years ago, and it made a significant contribution to my yearly earnings. I sold that account a couple of years ago.
Now, it is still possible to earn money from HubPages, but it's a long-term investment. It will take you six months to a year to make your first payout. After that, if you've chosen evergreen topics, earnings will increase, and you'll start getting a monthly payout - but you do need to maintain your Hubs and keep them up to date and relevant. So I wouldn't call it "passive" income.
Ten years ago, there was a large number of Hubbers who were professional bloggers and online writers. Most of them have left.
It depends what you think of as good earnings and how you define passive income. As Marisa says, it is much tougher here than it was ten years ago, mainly due to increased competition and things like internet search changing over time. You have to think in months and years and be very flexible. Whether it's all worth it is subjective. You certainly need to enjoy writing, editing, and taking on challenges. If you enjoy the process, then you will be happy, win or lose.
That makes sense and that's the right mind set. Persons who comes to hubpages just for the money will never earn a penny or nikel. Unfortunately, the big picture of passive income some 5 years back is no longer tenable. Economicswise, passive income is best leverage by tenancy investment, bank deposit, real estate, special short term savings accounts, and other money market instrucments. Significantly, all these required reasonable amount of initial cash outlay.

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...

Being new I'm not sure I totally understand the way to generate income here in HP. Am I to understand that one must have an Adsense account to earn income?
