2000 dollars/monthly on HubPages?

  1. David 470 profile image83
    David 470posted 6 years ago

    Considering what has transpired with some of my hubs in the past few weeks (and months)... I see how making $1500-3000 dollars a month is possible. I have less than 10 hubs gathering 66% of my traffic - only at the moment - this will likely change because of search engine trends, seasonal etc.... While my "older hubs" are not making as much income/traffic as they once did, they still equal a respectable amount considering the money earned is passive anyway.

    I have predicted many of my traffic downfalls and rises, but have came to the realization, that I must focus on VERY specific niches at the right time, and use SEO intelligently.cool

    I understand that people who make 1500+ a month on HubPages are the minority, but how many people approximately make this much a month?

    Five? Ten? Hundreds of hubbers??? The exact number is not important to me, but an approximation, perhaps?

      David, some of your hubs are on trending topics/games. They have a limited life. While its great you are doing so well, they are not evergreen topics, unfortunately.

      So they have a shelf-life.

      Actually I wish I knew about these things because I could take a temporary surge in traffic, I really could.

      Meanwhile, enjoy it smile

        David 470posted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Yes, this is why to some extent, I am not creating long-lasting passive income. However, I do have a gaming niche written a year ago that still gets good traffic - not sure how - it even survived Panda! Perplexing...

        My health related hubs just do not get a lot of traffic...They are not hot topics....unfortunately. I think those topics would do well with Amazon , though, because I am actually starting to make some money with Amazon.

      According to the self-reported stats I've been collecting on my Hub about improving your earnings, from Aug 2010 to Aug 2011 4% of respondents reported making over $1000 and had been with the site for 3 years or more.

      This year's stats are still too new to be useful.  Suffice to say, it's most likely that only an extremely small number of users out of the entire site membership are able to make that much.

      In the end, the people who get successful money-wise stop talking about it as it's in their best interests not to.

        Yes, I suspect most people who make a couple thousand do not talk about.

        Interesting poll results. How often do you reset the poll?

        1. relache profile image86
          relacheposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          I reset it in August because that's when the Hub was first published.  This year that worked out somewhat advantageously, as the subdomains went live right before the reset.

          I know at least one guy who registered a hubpages account just so he can comment spam my hub. smile  He posted ONE comment, then went back to post third-party (non-HP) comments using the same name.

      Is Panda still having a big impact on the masses?  I'm not in the >/=$1K per month crowd, but my earnings are now over double my pre-Panda earnings.

    I've never made more than $14 in a single day here.  I'm super aware that high end acoustic guitars aren't going to make me Hubpages "rich."

        I haven't either!!!!

        I made the....."jump" or "sacrifice" to run HP Ads....so there is less chance of making big Adsense, and an absolute certainty that I'm going to make over a buck a day....

          TheMagicianposted 6 years agoin reply to this

          Jump? Sacrifice? Hmm... what exactly relations do the HP Ads have to the AdSense ads? I've been pretty confused about this. If your HP Ads program is turned on, does that just mean less AdSense ads are shown?

    I've had my best earnings month here since last December this month, Panda affected my best hubs but they came back stronger and I'm supplementing my hubs with niche Wordpress sites as well. You never know if a hub is trending or not, Google search results decide your fate anyhow and for how long smile

    I'd have to suspect there are a lot (relatively speaking) of people making that type of money on HP.  Every major rev share site has multiple success stories of people making it big. 

    Big earners are definitely in the minority, but there are bound to be several.  Some will openly state it, but others probably never post on the forums or talk about it.  I'd have to suspect that for each person openly talking about it, there are at least two ghosts that you never hear from.

    As well as I'm doing lately, I could definitely see how it's possible, and I figured out how much traffic I need to get there.

    Now, like you said, we just need to use SEO intelligently and keep on keepin' on!

    some hubbers have quite an impressive earnings report every month. most of us dream of making something near these figures.
    talent is a big factor along with choosing the right subject matter.
    continued success.

    Some in spirational posts here. It seems that some people just have the knack of creating the type of hubs that people want to read.
