    While I am new it appears from the little time I have had here that financial and technology Hubs earn the most money. 

    Is there a list of the top $$$$ and $$$$$.  I haven't seen the five dollar signs - do they exists?

    Am I wasting my time with fashion - too competitive?  I am seeing some traffic on my Jackie Kennedy articles.  Any suggestions for the bridesmaid who never tops 90 - never a bride above 90 Hubscore?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      I have a hub with five, but it's my $$ hub that earns the most.

      Don't worry about hubscore or dollar signs. Just make the best pages you can.

      I haven't looked at your hubs yet, but I notice you already have 125. If you aren't seeing results you are happy with maybe slow down on building new hubs and spend more time on the ones you have.

      I have a couple of $$$$$ hubs and although they do well they are not my highest earners and i certainly didnt think that the keywords i used were high paying,i did once find out what paid the highest and then built a hub around that but it didnt work for a number of reasons,i just say write about stuff you are knowlegable about which will make it a well written hub,or find a niche then you wont have much competition.

      Don't sweat the HubScore, or any other metrics (like the dollar signs).  These are all just rough guides to how HubPages think they will perform - there's just no accounting for what really DOES happen!

      My advice is the "throw it to the wall and see what sticks" line of thought.  Write up a whole bunch of HubPages, then give it a month and see which ones perform best.  The ones that perform best - write more like those!

      GmaGoldie -

      If you want to know what keywords/topics make the most $, you need to use a third-party software to determine that.  Don't worry about the HP scores, look into Micro Niche Finder or Google's Keyword Tool (the Adwords one is better, or the external keyword tool).

      Look for topics like you normally would, then you might have to select the CPC tab to see the cost of the ads (I forget the name of the tab, it might just be labeled "ad cost").

      I have found very profitable keywords this way, and as an Adsense publisher using my own self-hosted websites, I make over $100 per month for my 10 websites.

      It's not much, I actually make a lot more money on Elance and selling affiliate prodcuts ($2500/6 months for affiliate sales, about $500 or so from Adsense in that time, Elance about $9k in 6 months).

      I find MUCH more reliable results using Micro Niche Finder, and at $97 that tool has paid for itself.  In any case, if you use the free keyword tools from Google, make sure you look for keywords with LOW COMPETITION and then SEO your Hubs to make sure you can rank for the terms you choose.

      If your hub is buried on page 1,000 of Google's index for "credit repair" or some other ridiculously competitive term, it doesn't matter if that term is $1 MILLION per click - you won't get a click!

      So it's a balance of: being able to RANK for the term, and finding a term that gets a decent CPC.

      One ebook I'd recommend to anyone looking into Adsense, and I THINK it's still $77, is the "Microniche Adsense Master's course" by a guy named "John XFactor."

      I know: sounds cheesy.  But it has SOUND SEO and other tutorials in it.  Hope this helps.

    I have never had above a 90 on my hubs but the highest my hubscore has been is 93... I seem to do well with my tattoo hub and skincare...

    Remember those $$$$$ that you see on Hubs are only an indication of earning POTENTIAL.  They don't guarantee any money, they don't mean that your Hub is one of the best.  It's just how an automated filter evaluates the tags you've chosen.

    It might be that your tags have a lot of potential but don't really match well with your Hub.  Your content could be still be poorly written or not very helpful.

    There are plenty of Hub authors who are making good money with $$ and $$$ Hubs because they are putting in the work to craft great Hubs that reach and connect with their target audiences.

    And HubScore is no guarantee of earnings either.

      Most topics that have high paying keywords are obviously very competitive. Unless your very lucky, or plan on spending months and months on promoting a Hub, getting traffic might be tough. I guess like most things you have to find a balance between competition and keyword/niche prices.

      When i first got started I wrote tons of articles in the credit niche, now a year or so later I only see a trickle of traffic to those articles daily...

    You can find a list of highest paying adsense topics by typing exactly that into Google search engine

    I certainly don't know what will do the best since I'm limited in the topics I write about, but I do know that food and travel hubs are fun to write, but you won't get rich off of them.

    I would suggest you do not write a 7 part series on the life and times of Elmer Fudd if you would like to make any money...

    that's just my 2 cents....

    which is about what I made smile

      I love Elma Fudd! I am off to read them. I probably won't buy anything from there being a typical hubber, but a free read about Elma Fudd? You Betcha! lol

      Hey there Greek One, the more button tells me you don't have any hubs. (the current glitch) I found the second one though and wound up in Russia! lol

            Hey Great earnestshub, is been a decade, waoo good to hear from you, how have you been? i hope things are getting cool with you over there?
            @Gmagoldie, work more on keywords, and just make sure you write good stuffs, hubpages is really great. i have reached my first $100 i guess because my earnings is 80 euros + some points, but i put my payment on hold.

            So i advice you chill out and keep writing good stuff, the money will soon come. there was a day i made 3.55 euros, i couldn't believe it, after a year now that i have stopped publishing hubs and editing or promoting. HUBPAGES ROCKS!!!

    Well I've just written a hub about Japanese schoolgirl uniforms. It's already getting massive traffic, but it won't ever earn anything (Adsense thinks it's a bit suspect lol so I had to take the ads off!).

    Getting a compromise between traffic and money is the key. It's actually quite difficult though. My $$ and $$$$ hubs are neck and neck in the earnings stakes - $$ generally get $0.30 clicks and $$$$ gets $3 clicks, but $$ get twice as much traffic, and better CTR.

      Well the best way I suppose is to go the Google Keyword tool route and then select the keywords which have the highest payout. Of course there will be lot of competition there .  so go for the next best that is the medium payout but lots of traffic..

      next best is low payout but lots of traffic + lots of hubs and it will make into a big money earning machine ..

      Well I have to eat my own words. My school girl hub has had an AdSense click, so maybe massive traffic low $ value is the way forward after all.

      Massive traffic hubs are also useful as Google knows that people follow certain links from pages, and these pages get a big boost in the rankings.

    Do you think it will help you earn more if you can turn your articles into videos easily ?

      You might not earn more here, but posting videos on youtube can be a lucrative way to promote products.
