I have always thought that having your own website is the best way to earn money online. Now I am even more convinced after the recent Google belly dance. This is my 2nd account on hubpages and have another well established account with over 300 hubs.
I have never earned much from hubpages but love the site and people here. Things may or may not improve with time but starting my own website is way to go. But there are a few issues:
1) I am pathetic at SEO and keywords, but hope that things will improve as I am learning each day.
2) I am not good at technical aspects so building a website may not be a easy task for me.
3) I am from India so finding a good hosting company and good domain is a bit of concern.
Go to Weebly.com. They have very nice layouts and they are very helpful
You get two sites...if you want more you can pay for it.
The two first sites are free...(I read about Weebly right here on Hubpages, so there's an article about it someplace)
You can lump your writing into two separate categories. I don't know what you write about mostly, say you love history and you love art so you could have a site called history.weebly.com/html and another art.weebly.com/html (you can pick better names).
It is for newbies so when it comes to type face and pictures and ads, you link adsense And you Personally! place the ads. So you can do two columns have a paragraph and an Ad....
Take at look at this page...it was done by a newbie..
No, no, don't!
There is always a price to pay for using a free host. If you can't afford hosting, use blogger.com.
Hosting isn't that expensive and it doesn't matter where you are. I'm in Australia but I have my sites hosted by Hostgator in Texas.
Wordpress software is just as easy to use as any of the "free website designers" offered by sites like Weebly, and it's fully transferable. You don't need to know any HTML or CSS to make it work.
As it happens, my first website was about belly dance! I had never used Wordpress before. The hard part was getting the hosting set up. After that, I had the website up and running within a day.
This the first one I came across on Google.

Personally I use for an html editor called HTML-Kit, which since I write all my own code
I want the simplest one I can find. This has
multible levels of complication one can use and has a free version. Code is being standardized into CSS and or HTML5. I use CSS. You can learn individual instances of code by Googling for instance CSS+font.
You can also find ready made templates to copy and past. You can check your code using this address:
Use wordpress and you don't have to know anything about html, CSS or any of that other techie stuff.

I've noticed that some people on here are making money from Hubpages and then also from other websites, like their own.

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?

I have been attempting, somewhat futilely, to increase traffic to my hub. I have followed some of the guidelines and steps, but to no avail. What are some methods that I could use to attract traffic to my website?

I do, do you?I'm just trying to get an idea, for a hub I'm writing. Do you feel the need to own your own website?Has it been beneficial?Do you get a lot of traffic?How do you promote it?

Does anyone have any experience with building a website for adsense with the same kind of content you would put on hubpages?Basically what I'm asking is, for the same type of content building, how is putting it on your own website and hubpages different...besides the obvious revenue sharing. ...

I know that several hubbers here set up separate web sites under domain names they own themselves. I would appreciate any feedback or advice on the best way to do this especially for people (like me) who aren't total techies but do have basic web experience. Which web hosting services do you...
