Adsense income question

  1. easyspeak profile image71
    easyspeakposted 8 years ago

    The assumption with creating hubs for adsense is that it will eventually become passive income.  Which means that the more content your write, the more you build on that passive income.

    This also should mean that adsense earnings can/should only go up.

    Has this been true for everyone?

      There's a user on this site who has 2,389 Hubs in a single account.  He's made them over the last 17 months.  His profile says that he once was an investigative reporter for 30 years but that he and his wife both now have disabilities and are rather poor, and could really use some more money.

      Does he have a passive revenue stream that just keeps going up?  His HubScore is 1.  You can't make Hubs any worse than that.  He's probably lucky if he earns a dime.

      A lot of people aren't realistic about how much work and effort goes into "passive income."

        Is that the one who only posts pictures of old, long forgotten TV shows and celebrities?

      Hi easyspeak,
      People don't realize at first how much work is involved when you first start writing to earn revenue.
      To answer your question yes, the more you write the more you can earn.  I have been following this practice and I have seen my Adsense and Kontera revenue increase each week a little at a time.
      A couple of weeks ago I hit the $100 minimum payout and it took me a year.  I just kept working it.  Now I earn revenue a whole lot faster.
      I don't only write at Hubpages.  I feel writing at many different revenue sharing websites helped me increase my revenue.

    I have had plenty of websites which have risen and then fallen.

    You have to constantly beat the competition who are trying to beat you, and stale content grows old.

    Passive income online is possible, but it still requires maintenance, and you have to keep your network growing to truely stay safe.

    My old flat mate earned £40k plus a year off a site he wrote about 5 or 6 years ago, but his earnings have just dropped to about £10k, passive income is never safe online.

    It depends on the topic.

    If it's seasonal, for example Christmas related products, it will peak on season.

    If it's about a person, say a celebrity, it will spike when they've released a movie or have done something controversial to put themselves in the press.

    If it's a band there will be new media attention every time there is a new album launched or a new tour has started.

    If it's a trending topic, a fashion, a novelty, it may come and it may go and it may never return.

    There's a lot of "ifs".

    It may even be a case of writing about something that NO ONE Is searching for. Then it's only going to be dead weight. But if you enjoyed writing it then so be it.

    You need to put in time and effort to see what's current and what is consistent. There's a book called Click: What Millions of People Are Doing Online and Why it Matters which is a real eye opener. I highly recommend it.

      LOL, and some people get flustered, frustrated and frightened when their hubscore drops into the high 80s. big_smile

    It's a great example that how much effort you put into your Hubs directly relates to what you get back from them.

    I think Adsense is a great way to make passive income and that Hubapges is a great starting point for people who want to learn about internet marketing.  I made $668 in March strictly from Hubpages using the Keyword Academy Method.  April is looking even better as my Hubs are earning around $30 to $40 per day from Adsense.

      That is so cool.
