Happy Holidays fellow writers! Hope you all had a great one!
My question is about poems.
I recently have been inspired to write poetry again (it's been a long time!) I am finding it wonderful very creative and therapeutic at the moment.
I'd like to publish one of the poems as a hub.
Any ideas on how to monetize?
A short intro on the poem or just the poem itself?
I think you'd have to ask the people who write poems on how to monetize it.
Essentially, from my experience, only poets are interested in poetry.
Hi Dorsi, Happy holidays to you also.
I have a few poetry hubs. When I published them, I really didn't think they would get many views, but one of them does very well with searches. I have amazon products on one of them. use your key words wisely.
I gave some information about the writing process instead of just publishing the poems alone. I know when I read poems, so often I wish I knew what the poet was thinking or what the inspiration was while writing.. but I also realize that often a poem will mean what it needs to mean to the reader at the moment of reading.
love is a top searched topic.
Just publish the poem 'as is' so long as it is original otherwise it can be considered as duplicate content. To monetize, use capsules for Ebay, Amazon, Kontera and Adsense. Make sure you register for these services. Looking forward to reading your poem. Good luck!
both goes well.
A little introduction may please the search engine and will give you more keywords.
Poems receive lots of comments that's the best part of it. Keywords are picked from those and traffic is driven towards your poems. But poems don't earn a lot.
Thanks Sophia and saleheensblog.
Unfortunately I don't think that a greeting card co.would want this one. It's a little too intense but it could drive some traffic tied in with Valentines Day and maybe I'll do some poetry books as my Amazon capsule. I really don't care too much about any big money with this one, would just like to see it get some healthy traffic.
Experimental mode here. That's what I love about HubPages!

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the hub, extending its survival, and therefore, making it more searchable. I've also...

I have never written poetry before I have published my very first poem and I am not sure that I have written poetry now. When it comes to poetry I am clueless as to what makes something a poem and what prevents it from being a poem. Can some one help me out before I make a complete twit of...

Hi--me again.. I was reading that there is a 'nofollow' generated on hubs with scores of 50 or under, so I've un-published all of mine that were down in that range. The result is that my total hub count is now way down, so that instead of 10 more hubs to 100, I've now got to...

I'm interested in poetic process. I personally believe the real writing comes in the editing stage and that all first drafts, without exception, are abysmal. As a result, I edit and rewrite a piece multiple times over days and sometimes weeks before I deem a poem acceptable for...

Just out of curiosity (and I am one who is very pro-poetry on Hubpages, in fact I believe that they should have an entire section dedicated to it at poetry.hubpages.com), do you make money on your poems?There is a reason why I am asking, which I won't disclose yet, just a few cogs churning. I don't...
