      Nice hits. Last June I got more than 30$  from HubPages with less than 5000 views. I guess it depends on our article rather than the platform. However, HubPages does really bring traffic to my blog. So, at the moment, me myself prefers HP because my blog is still a baby. lol

        dear Ronald Daniar ,

        I know hubpages got better search engine rank than blogger ,but earning through them is different .
        .I think you are promoting your own blog from your hubs

          Yes you are right. I use my hubs to generate traffic to my blog since it is a new blog. smile It is not wrong, right? Can you explain to me why you said that earning through blogger and HubPages is different? I would like to know more about it. Thanks.

          FYI, my hubs still earn more than my blog last July.

      How do you do that with 0 hubs? tongue

    It's apples and oranges, really.

    HubPages gets more traffic, but has a lower CTR. Its authority gives other benefits, too.

    Most people should be working on several platforms for backlink purposes, and Blogger is as good as any.

    Can you do both? If so, you would eventually make $20, per your estimates. If not, I guess-- considering I've written 6 articles that, as a reporter, I would at least have gotton minimum wage--do what your love and the money will follow. That's my motto an I'm sticking to it..

    Which is best? 

    I think HP is better for the newbie. 

    Write a blog and no one sees it, until you learn how to optimise it, promote it and get good rankings.  No readers = no income.

    Write an article on HP and it gets noticed quite quickly.  Readers = income. 

    I know there are people like Mark Knowles making heaps more from their blog than from HP, but I think you have to get to a certain level before that 's the case.  And, of course, you have to pick the right subject.

      We'll, that is not always the case.  My blog is only a few months old and last month I received 4,000 visitors.  I think that is pretty good.   I really have not done much at all to promote it, but the search engines pick it up quickly and it ranks well. 

      I don't have adsense on it, but I do have affiliate links.

        Yes, that is good!   I did also say that it also depends on picking the right subject - whether by accident or design!   If you are being picked up by the search engines, you've either stumbled on to a good niche or you've written the content with SEO in mind (again, either by accident or design).

        What affiliate links do you have?

          I guess I just stumbled on a good topic.  It isn't a topic I picked,  it is just a topic I really enjoy writing about. 

          I use Shareasale, CJ, eBay and Amazon.

      i think marisa is right , for a newbie in internet its very difficult to promote a blog and it takes even long time if you are slow learner..on the other hand HP got simple user interface and anyone can get lots of traffic with good articles

      more traffic= more income smile

      Yes - I make more from my blogs that I make from hubpages.

      But - I learned a lot of what I do on my blogs from using hubpages. smile

      If you have very low technical skills (as I do) hubpages is s great place to learn your craft. I trust that Paul, Paul and Jason know a lot more about the way the internet works than I do, so I follow their guide lines with my blogs. What do hubpages encourage and discourage?

      They encourage or allow -

      Flagship hubs
      Capstone hubs
      High page view hubs that are of little value in themselves
      Good tagging
      Quality, unique content
      Good quality outgoing links

      They discourage -

      Links to "bad" sites
      Copied content
      Affiliate links in quantity to "poor" affiliate sites

      Follow these guidelines and your blog can be an "authority" smile

      But it is more work than hubpages.

    I do both Blogger and Hubpages, and my Hubpages have consistently made much more than Blogger, but then, I don't have as much content on Blogger.  I get about 5 times the traffic on Hubpages.

    A lot of how much you make depends on the subject material.  If it's on something that people will be reading with an eye to buying something, like a product review, it will get more clicks.  I don't get a lot of clicks on personal posts, but on educational posts I get more.

    Hi Janet21,

    You are a top lensmaster. I guess that is why your blog got lots of visitors.

      It is true that I do well on Squidoo, but 95% of the traffic to my blog comes from search engines, not other lensmasters.
