    Isn't it an exhausted topic by now? All I see on my feed is new accounts with something along the lines of "How to Make Money Online." I'm talking about every single day I log in. Anyone have any idea why that is?

      Their assumption is that this 'make-money' keyword will give them the much-needed traffic and hence they themselves will make money in the process.

      I agree, and it's not just an issue here.  On Upwork and other freelancing sites, all anyone is looking for is someone to ghost write books about how to make money online.

      My first article ever was on making money online.                                      Traffic was really good, and the article a feature success. But later get down.                I think my intention no doubt is to make money on line, and I've got to do what I preach, right?

    Because it's one of the most frequently Googled subjects, especially during these pandemic-al (is that a word?) times.

    Therefore every jackass with an internet connection thinks that all they have to do to cash in is write an "article" that regurgitates the same tired, crappy, out of date information that ten million other people have already posted.

    Some articles were almost the same but some maybe different. There might be some articles exposing that making money online is a hoax or something. Just saying.  Sorry.

    Maybe the way people are making money online is by writing articles about how to make money online.

      Absolutely correct. Otherwise, what should one say about us authors who are earning only via, article writing?             Is that not making money online? What is an author's intention onlie?                       And of course, some are not after the money. Is that not a reality? You've got to agree with me.

    Quite a few of those people just learned about earning on the internet and for many of them it is not something they have commonly heard about, so it is something novel and they very likely do not know that it is a super saturated topic and that they do not know enough about it to write an informative article. So it kind of is exciting to write about it after you've got those first few cents.

      Agreed. That's what prompted and motivated me. I went for a little one week training just how to leverate and migrate online. I put my pen on paper and wrote about that. I later diverse into other subjects I'm passionate about.

    Very correct. Only beginners read them if at all.

    I guess most people that stumble across Hubpages, are looking for ways to make money and this way is by far the most interesting option in my opinion.

    Generally the four most written about (and read) articles are about:

    How to improve yur writing.
    How to make money
    Self Improvemement

    With the exception of the first one, the last three all lead up to how to be be successful in one way or another - generally increased income.
