    Can I start earning from hubpages in 3 months as much as 1000$? Is it possible, impossible or a hard nut to crack. Can anyone advice?

      It is possible, but it is also a hard nut to crack.

      1000$ total from these source:

      Product Hubs revenue- Yes
      Affiliate Links revenue - Yes
      Adsense - Not so easy without keyword research
      Kontera- Don't even think about it

      Just enjoy writing and sharing your experiences.  While some people have made money on the web, they are an extreme exception.

      Dont expect too much just enjoy your experience

        If you read his profile, he is unemployed... it is difficult to just 'enjoy' writing when you are struggling to pay the bills.... especially when you are paying for internet connection and electricity for the priviledge... I joined hubpages with the intention of making money. Can't see anything wrong with that.... Was unemployed at the time. Now I have a low paying job, hubpages is effectively bumping my pay up to 'ok'.

      Yes, You can make that much in 3 months. Using Adsense alone too! Its very easy to do too, get the number 1 spot on Google search engine for 100-400 high traffic high click through rate keywords.

      Your odds of getting one like that are probably 1 in 400,000. It does happen yes, but its hard.

      A better goal is to get to $100 in 3 months. Even that is hard for most adsense users.

    You probably COULD, but if you are entirely reliant on earning that $1000 within that time frame.... then Associated Content or Helium marketplace and contests may be your best option.

    What are your needs? You need $1000 within 3 months? If so, go where the upfront payment is.

    If on the other hand you want to produce content which will make you money every month for years to come, then Hubpages all the way. This is a residual income. You could write enough hubs in 3 months to earn you $5000..... but it will be over a much longer period... say 12 or 24 months....

    My aim is residual income... I want to be able to earn $1000 each and every month, with minimal effort in certain months, Hubpages is half way to helping me achieve that goal.

    For the desperate or short sighted, Hubpages is not the place. For those wanting to achieve greater financial security for the longer term, and are willing to work hard for it, then I hope hubpages would be the place for you.

    That is the goal my husband and I have--to really dig in and try to learn all the ins and outs of being successful on here, for the future.

    Although he's been on here for more than a year, and myself about 11 months, we've yet to hit an Adsense payout, ugh...

    We are having a REAL problem, trying to understand all the technical language, and make it work for us...

    Who wants to volunteer to come to our house, sit down with us, and explain all this stuff in PLAIN ENGLISH???  lol

      If I ever visited San Francisco, which actually is high on the places I would love to visit (me and the gf talk about flying to Vancouver, then to San Francisco, then driving to Las Vegas via Reno)... I would without a doubt turn up at Hubpages HQ and ask to be given a masterclass!

    Shameless plug:  Another hubber and I have joined forces to create a website to provide the exact "sit down and show me what to do" help that so many want / need.  The site is registered, but not up and running yet.  I'm sure we'll let everyone know when we have our "open e-house" and launch!  smile

    As for MY earnings in 2 months, it's $8.00 with Adsense. LOL.  But I've made nearly $30 on Redgage in 10 days. (See my profile here).  I've also figured out the key to using SheToldMe, and a few others.

    Still, even though I KNOW I'm on the right track, my views here on HP have dropped dramatically in the past 24 hours.  I don't know it it's a fluke or something else, but I'm keeping my eyes open...

    Good luck.  $1000 in 3 months seems NEARLY impossible -- especially if we're talking about your FIRST 3 months.

      I hope I was somewhat responsible for some of your earning on Redgage because I put you down as a referrel when you mentioned Redgage and so far I have made almost as much there in 2 weeks as I have here in 4 months. Man I hope hp picks up. Congrats on your earnings. LJ1

    Well, I would say it is very possible,and I totolly agree with ryanket  if you put a lot of effort into it and hard work, i read somewhere how a guy pull close to 500 in its first month. So yeah its possible, those that think is not is because they dont quite understand the SEO benefits of hubpages, or what proper backlinking is, or what good keyword research is,or how to compete for number 1 results on google

    I been here 10 months already and I am half way there, it took me 7 months to understand how to properly create hubpages and make money with them, since I learned that, I made more money on the last 3 months than all my past months combined.

    The key is to treat each hubpage like your own personal niche website, you put this in mind and you can make each hub earn you at least $1 per day.

    Try sites like text broker or digital point for some instant cash, if you write well you can find people who will employ you long term with steady work.

    Hubpages can make you a decent amount, but it takes time and hard work, I would still get a day job while you kick it off!

      I wanted to respond to this one as I will be able to find it again easier this way (I can get a bit lazy when trying to do several things at once). Residual income is my goal but if the going gets tough its nice to know of a few ways to earn the rent money without having to resort to illegal acts! lol

    To be honest most people wont make 1000 dollars ever using Hubpages.

    Others will do very well.

    I do okay on the internet but hubpages is just of many tools I use to earn.

    Making $1000 in three months that too from hubpages alone is not possible at least for a beginner.

    Anyone who can make this much here must be an excellent internet marketer and such talented person can make much more on internet.

  17. Ultimate Hubber profile image71

    Yes, but a really tough task that needs some hard work in the right direction. To achieve this you will need some of your hubs to rank high for commonly searched terms. Do learn SEO for this purpose.

    It is probably possible but will be extremely hard!  I can't remember exactly but probably made about $50 in the first three months.  However I had no knowledge of how to make money online and produced relatively few hubs.

    take a look at howtoguru on hubpages he claims to have made $1000 in one month with the help of hubpages but using other methods which he is writing about on a weekly basis.

    1. thisisoli profile image71
      thisisoliposted 13 years agoin reply to this

      I wouldn't to be honest, he talks about some very out of date things, and mentions using Digg (a no-follow website) for backlinks, along with others.

      He is also very inconsistant with his claims on where his earnings are actually originating from.

      If you are looking for how to make money with tools such as Hubpages check out Hubpages users such as


      All of whom in my opinion are really earning what they claim, and are using great techniques, mixed with intelligent marketting strategies, to earn what they do.

      I have a few hubs as well, and the traffic to my blog website, but all those people listed have some fantastic informative hubs!


      You might want to take a look at how Misha does things as well, while I don't know if he has any how to hubs, I have heard he is earning a pretty some by heavily marketing a small amount of hubs, which is opposed to thw low marketing, high volume technique a lot of us use!

      1. Marisa Wright profile image83
        Marisa Wrightposted 13 years agoin reply to this

        I'm pretty sure Misha makes most of his money from his website, and his small amount of Hubs are part of his promotional strategy for that - as well as making money in their own right.

    There are people who earn 1000$ and more every month from HubPages alone, so that definitely is not an impossible task. But for that try creating unique keyword relevant content (NOT copy pasting from Triond or publishing with minor changes)and promote it in as many relevant places (again i am not mentioning the mails you keep sending) as possible. It would be worth unpublishing your articles in triond and using it in HubPages instead because HubPages can earn you much more for your content. I also think that too much of 'sex related content' can get you into trouble. There are plenty of how to hubs for newbies by experts here on creating hubs. Take some time and read them for more information.

        Dev, I just looked at your profile. You are a software developer AND a corporate trainer. Both can provide excellent topics for a number of hubs. For example, good advice relating to website development will always be lapped up.

        Most of the hubs that you have written till now center on just one topic - SEX. Remember, sex sells, but not quite well as a hubpages topic. You may also risk your adsense account if you push too much.

        Log out of your HP account, and check the home page. Just have a look at all the hubs that have made it to the front page. You will get the idea.

    I've been here 3 months (this isn't my only persona) and I gotta say $100 in 3 months is more likely, and that's only possible if you have prior experience of internet marketing.

    90% of my income comes from 10% of my hubs. If I could tell why they were so popular and only make hubs like them I would be rich. But it's really difficult to figure out why good hubs are so good!

  28. Origin profile image60
    Originposted 13 years ago

    Well, I'm talking from my perspective of having..

    1. My own .com's running and getting income
    2. My Hubpages running and getting income
    3. My Squidoo running and getting income

    Include both PPC as well as affiliates and it's possible that I can hover around there sometimes, although I'm new to hubpages so I'm just getting this one off the ground. Due to the nature of my .com's it can fluctuate though (it's entertainment - not adult - but it's all im going to say).

    It's possible to get $1,000+ per month from Hubpages alone, and in a short period of time, but it's either your lucky, or you've cranked out a bazillion quality pages, or you've managed to start something viral.

    There are blackhat methods, but I wouldn't count on those. Usually those are the people that say "I've made $1,000 in only 2 weeks!!" types of things that are doing it.

        I look at the Google Trends and Google Keyword tool, then compare and contrast the information given, and that provides a basis for what is popular for searches as well as what they are typing in for that search.

    I think it starts with keyword research.
    You can find how to and tools from our fellow hubbers here - new hubs: … -Your-Blog
    search your competitors - all site reveal on page one google for that keyword is you competitors.

    I haven't made $1,000, I just share what I know
