Hi, wilderness. Thanks for your reply. I guess if you earn $100 a month without writing any more hubs, thats not too bad. The question is will you get $100 every month and more importantly if you add more hubs will you earn more than $100. Thanks.
Yes, it's possible to make a significant (or even a lot) of money using HubPages. However, for most people, it's not probable. Or in other words, it could happen but for most people it's not actually going to happen.
Well, since the major traffic increase at the end of the month in August. I made 150 dollars in AUG. If my traffic maintains, I should be able to make several hundred this month, but it depends on the CPM and if Google adsense outbids them.
Yesterday, I could of made over 10 dollars with HP ad program, but Google adsense must of outbid them because I made several dollars with adsense by itself.
I am jealous, yes I just got here, but I've had a blogger blog for almost 4 years and have yet to see my balance reach $25...I don't seem to know what I'm doing. I guess my first mistake was thinking a personal, variety blog would do the trick.
If I ever get to make even $100/month on a regular basis, I will do cartwheels around my entire neighborhood! No really...I will!
I am still learning, and perhaps this site will get me into new directions!
I use on-page SEO. Basically, I keep in mind the terms, synonyms, and phrases people tend to use when talking about my topic. I'm not chasing popular searches; rather, I try to be specific enough in my writing that search engines understand what I'm talking about so that they'll send me exactly the people who will be interested in my webpages.
I also set up Google authorship so that when my hubs appear in search results, they look appealing (my profile photo is a professional portrait -- it's silly, but good images tend to attract clicks.)
Most of all, I try to create useful and engaging content, drawing on subjects I know well and looking for ways to convert what I know into interesting or helpful pages. It's the hardest and most effective way to get traffic: create fascinating or useful content that people like so much that they're likely to share it.
$1.01 in total. I joined 7 weeks ago but only started posing hubs the end of July. Am waiting for the money to roll in. I've been told its like running a marathon, which is good for me as I'm pretty hopeless at sprinting.
With HPads running the amount of ads displayed by Google is much less. So it would only make sense that the earnings would be more in this scenario. I do not believe in trying to fix something that is not broken, so unless something drastic happens with Adsense, I will not be making the switch.
Cavedweller, some people have different accounts because it lets them write different genres of articles with out feeling they are being judged by their peers. " Top 10" articles do well for money earners but don't look great mixed with political articles. Also, you may rank better if there are keywords resonating through your whole account.
Maintaining the same URL and publish date would be awesome! I believe that search engines appreciate content all falling under the same niche, at least in my experience.
It seems that going in to older hubs and shining them up a little attracts search engine attention as well! I changed some summaries last week on half my hubs, all of them are seeing an increase in traffic.
I make now between $8 to $9 monthly and I have 14 hubs. I suspect most of my earnings come from a single hub. So I am now back in the game trying to create one hub per week plus polishing old hubs and adding fresh content. I have one hub I am considering deleting but I will add some more content to it to see what happens.
Actually, I've accumulated over $500,000 since the beginning of the year. As such, I will be initiating a leveraged buyout of HubPages sometime this Fall. I am already writing up a to-do list of things I'll do once I'm in charge.
Actually, the rules did change. The original site TOS did not forbid disclosing anything about earnings, and not only were we very much encouraged to talk about earnings, HubPages used that info (with permission) as a major marketing angle at the time.
Whether people are here for the money or not, the point is that it is a violation of HubPages policy to discuss how much you earn. That's why this post should be deleted. People are stating how much they made, and taking the chance on getting banned from HubPages. Not cool.
Is it true that the 60/40 model only applies after HubPages pays their expenses? Because I have expenses too... I don't see why we should suffer because HubPages wants 40% to be pure profit AFTER their expenses.
A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP. Recently though, since my earnings have dropped so much, I figured I didn't have much...
What earns you more, Adsense or the Hubpage Ad Program?I have been reading over some previous questions and answers and I got to wondering which ad program is currently paying better, or is running both best? I know it can vary, but if you have any math to go with it that would be great.Right now...
Some people have said they've turned off HP Ads and just use Adsense and actually make more money from Adsense. I'm considering trying that out and was curious how much more some of you are making just through Adsense. Fifty percent more? Twice as much? Triple? Quadruple?
