    Under the stats tab, there is a little bit of info under the hubmetrics that includes "Earnings Potential."  I can only assume that more dollar signs, the better. In fact, that's been my motto for some time.  But I was wondering if someone could explain to me what exactly that means and what affects it? I'm sure this has been asked a thousand times, but I didn't see anything under the search I used.

      More dollar signs means a few more than one!

    well the more $$$$ signs you have means The keywords you have in hub have higher CPC as per the google adwords... so more pay per click. smile

        I highly recommend Google Keyword Tool. Great way to find relevant keywords for your hubs and it also has very nice CPC data.

          I`m using Google Adwords keyword tool from time to time, but it`s not the best one you can use. As for earnings I think Hubpages vs. Traffic does not convert that well after all. 2$ - 5$ per 1000 visitors this applies in case you aren`t promoting your hubs too much. If anyone is here to make a full-time income, they shouldn`t expect that in less than 12 months.

    Remember, it's "potential," not any sort of guarantee.

    I am glad you mentioned that feature. I'd never looked at it before. It is interesting to see that my hubs with the most potential are my travel hubs. I guess more hotels, etc advertise with google ads than horse products;o)

    That means I should go on more vacations so I have more places to inspire my writing. LOL, soon as I get rich writing for hubpages I'll start traveling; right now I can't afford the gas!
