revenue potential

    Hubpages has a option that shows the revenue potential (number of $ signs). Does it really shows the revenue potential? What is ur exp?

      I think it's more an indication of the value of the keywords. If your hub never gets search engine views then you can have $$$$$ and never get a cent.

    Haven't found it appropriate so I don't check it anymore.

    I find it helpful and have started deleting rough drafts based upon this criteria.  Essentially, the revenue is simply not there or the competition is dominated by others out on the Internet.  It is a good starting point but not an absolute.

    If you love the subject - go for it but know the revenue potential - if that is your goal MAY not be there.

    A number of Hubbers have stated that guide has not held true for them.  I am guessing because they have dominated the subject or have perfected the promotion - they are doing something very right for Google to reward them adequately.

      I hope you mean the criteria in general and not the dollar-sign metrics that show up on your hubs. I just checked my top three earners and they show $, $ and $$$ respectively. The HP metric is way off in my experience.

      @SharkAl - Just navigate over to one of your hubs. At the top of the screen you should see a "Stats" button. Click on that and then on "Metrics."

    Where is this $ sign? I didn't know about this, sounds really interesting.

      $ sign or dollars ? :-)

    Where is the $ dollar sign within hub pages that reflects the hubs earning potential? Just curious to see it.

      Found It!  - When you are on your own hub, click the 'Stats' tab.  Then another tab, 'Hub Metrics'.  Here you will see $$$$$ in the column.  Does that help?

        I see it, thanks very much ByChanceTV.

        It's very interesting, of course it is not guaranteed but it gives you a good guideline.

      It may work for other's hubs but it does not reflect the earning potential on my Hubs.
