    I'll only mention this once but I need one volunteer Hubber willing to set up a fresh HubPages account and to learn SEO, to build hubs following all the SEO tricks which I'll show you, essentially someone who is completely new to HubPages and whom wants to learn to build money making hubs with monetization in mind.

    I'll need this person to sign up this "experiment" account under my affiliate link so I can benefit from all the work I'll be putting in . This will be an experiment with a complete newbie to making money online and the projected outcome will be you learning to generate a 2,000.00 adsense income from your hubs. No guarantees but this is the goal. I'm trying to crack the 2k a month code so to speak. If one Hubber can do it I know others can.

    I figured I can go get anyone online to do this bringing in a new writer and training them but I wanted to give you guys/girls first crack at joining the experiment.

    Email me if your interested, I will pick one or several people by the end of the week. You will be writing your own hubs on your own topics, all I will ask is that you follow the SEO rules for building your hubs so they do generate adsense income (for you). You will need to monetize your hub account with adsense for this to work.

    If nobody volunteers that's fine I'll find someone off of HubPages, just thought I'd show some loyalty to the hub community and give you first shot.

    Are you cracking the $2000.00 adsense revenue per month from YOUR hubs?  This is a simple yes or no question.

      Jerrico Usherposted 15 years agoin reply to this

      No. But am I am not claiming to have. I am in a learning phase, I do know SEO, (but knowing the path and walking the path are different.. all I'm trying to do is walk the path and get others to walk it to...)

      I am learning alot about it, and I'm trying to share my knowledge while helping others to join me in the experiemnt.  I'm just trying to put my knowledge to use here. By showing others and doing it myself. If you read my Samurwriter site you'll see exactly what I'm trying to do. My experiment if it works will assist in making my training site more effective. My training site will help ALL hubbers crack the code to making 2k a month. I am confident that I can do this actually with what I've learned. I've been studying all of this for 10 months now and am going to be moving my hubs on this account over to samurwriter filtering them through seo... so I'll see if this works.

      I'm not making any claims here, I'm just offering to help others understand it and apply it and if alot of people do find success with these methods I've learned on countless hubs and through some SEO tips a friend of mine who is making alot of money at it taught me, then others will follow. I don't know why everyone is being so anti-help someone out here, my intentions are just to make a success of hubpages and to get others involved thats it. I'm not going to respond to any more sarcasm or banter, if someone wants to participate email me. and Jimmy it works both ways, you leave me alone and stop stalking my threads and email box and I'll leave you alone deal?

    No, I was just asking a question.  I didn't start a fight last time, you made one out of what I said.  You'll notice I did not respond when you tried to make a fight of it, even apologized though I had no need to beyond civility.

    My point was just to ask if you had done what you are saying you are going to teach someone else.  I don't think that is combative, merely curious.

          Thank you shadesbreath... I appreciate your comments, I see I've misjudged you and possible jumped to conclusions before, I appoligise for that. Life is a learning experience, and I'm not too humbled (when I'm calmed down) to admit I was wrong or a real jerk, I was, to many, but not unprovoked (no excuse however)...

          Have a charming day

      Your right. I'm not trying to be a guru here though, I'm trying to apply my learned knowledge and to team up others to do it to. I figure that showing others what I know and us all working as a team to build these SUPER HUBS we can help each other out i.e. what one of us is doing wrong the other may see.

      They say 2 heads are better than one, and its true. I too am in training and I tell people that on my site, on my other account, even in this hub if you read it carefully (that was a non combative statement).

      My wish is that people would come in here with positive energy and offer their opinions not fighting words like Jimmy's. Its one thing to offer your opinion, its quite another to be a jerk about it. Some people never learn. To use Jimmy's own words "You should email me instead of provoking me in a thread", its about respect. If he can't handle that then he should just keep his opinions to himself. It's a hyprocritical thing he does that really touches on my last nerve... but enough about that...

      We are a community here, were a group of writers who should be helping one another to excel in our writing, excel in our earning potential, and excel in any other area we can. We have this extraordinary power to share with each other here, we all have wonderful ideas, our hubs are proof, but why don't we ban together and help each other to earn more money. 99% of the people who signed up at HubPages did so with the dream of making money, this fact is laced in all the forums, it is the number one newbie questions asked. Bickering in the forum and "daydreaming" in threads is not banning together its slacking off, its entertainment, its pretending to be interrested in making money when you know you won't apply anything you learn.

      Why do you guys resist my attempts to help people do just that (make money)? What kind of a community is this where we waste potential because a few of us don't have the patience to learn and fear being left out if the others do learn and start earning? It's not about being jealous because one person made money and you didn't, its about being ambitious to reach that same height, about that person reaching down his or her hand to help you up there... you don't have to be successful to give advice, many of us know the path but just don't walk it, usually out of fear or lack of experience (which breeds fear). We all need help from others that are what we wish we were.

      I happen to have the knowledge to a point and I have the drive to try it, I'm no guru, I'm just a guy who loves to help others reach their goals, so I make a few bucks if non hubpage authors sign up through my site, how again does this affect you? Your part you just get free information and you have the opportunity to ban together for a cause, a make some dam money finally cause- where is this a bad thing again?

      Tell me again why your here? community? if your here to socialize and "write" then why do you talk so dam much about money? why is money 89% of what you talk about in the forum???? where is it that I'm off topic again? I talk about money and I'm self promoting? hypocrits all of you. Shame shame shame.

      I've taken advice from people who have nothing they claim they know how to reach... I love hearing those who can't walk the walk tell me how.. why? because I'm willing to try it.. you sat there in your chair and dreamed it all up into perfect harmony but you didn't apply it... so let me!

      Teach me to do it and you know what, me being a walker (walking the path even if I fail at least I tried) I've only failed like 1,445,654 times I still have a few more to go and I'm successful! I'm not afraid to fail, Failure helps you learn what doesn't work, nobody ever became successful without having alot of failure stories to tell.. its the quality of your trying in the story that makes this so fun to do when you reach the zenith of your success.. for crist sake have a good story to tell at least?!

      Those rich chaps are really snobby blokes they won't settle for a dumb I sat in the hubpages forum for 3 years and didn't make a dime haha, they will just stare and wait for the punch... so what did you do? oh nothing, I found another career... what?

      I will take their knowledge and run with it, why? because their information potentially can give me what I need.. now I can help them to apply their knowledge by showing them it works and coming back to say, hey it worked, your a genius, now its my turn to help you with the walking the path part. I hand them 1000.00 of what I earned from their system to motivate them... look what you showed ME how to do! then they get up excited to try it themselves... this is how the world works!

      I can write all my seo hubs and come back here when I have 2k a month to show for it, then you would be less likely to beat me over the head for my efforts, but I think it's important to work as a team on something like this, I think we can do this better together than by ourselves. As a team when one of us falls off the horse three of us can help him or her back on. It helps us with accountability, with bragging rights, as we each surpass our own limitations we can come in here and brag about it and others will follow.

      If you build it they will come is right... some of us need communal support to get the ambition to try it, some of us don't have the fearless gene, but it can be programmed. how many of us before hubpages resorted to writing hubs on myspace? maybe just in doc files we put away and never read again, never shared. The community of hubpages brought ambition out of thousands of writers and showed them their writing matters.

      I'm trying to build it but I want others to share in the building because through our synergy the thing that makes HubPages great in the first place we can do more, we can inspire others faster, and we can ourselves prevail with incredible speed, efficiency and even our own suggestions. We can put our advice to work, instead of coming in here and saying yea do this do that, writing hubs about seo we can actually do it, (I don't know how many hubs on SEO tactics I've read that don't even apply the very principals described in the hub!!!!)

      Others will too, our advice means more because we don't get that opportunity to read the hub and say we'll do it later and then build 20 hubs not using a dam piece of the advice we read and thought would work. Some people thrive on attention, when others praise their accomplishments this fuels their desire and ambition to do it again, I see it in here all the time, those same people insult me for trying to help them (ehumjimcoughtmy)

      Don't you see? It's not about what I can get out of it, what I will earn, what I'm selling, its about how we can all help each other and generate a cause, one that will help us all help each other get out of this 9 to 5.. in that area I am absolutely successful, I don't go to a job, I make a lot of money sitting at home writing articles, blogs, and building sites...I came to hubpages with one goal, to make 2 thousand dollars a month to quit Lowe's ironically I didn't do it here but I did do it, I  make 3k+ a month and I work for myslef as a COPYWRITER in that respect I'm successful so my advice does hold water.

      Have I generated a 2k a month HubPages account? No I haven't. Will I? absolutely, I have the will power to do it, I have the hubs already built, I just need to tweak them, I have the backlinks network, all the off HubPages tools for promotion ALL free other than SA which just bands them together into a control panel...I choose to pay for that because the site is incredible and a huge time saver (and you can't get the linkback network anywhere else but linkvana for twice as much)

      What your missing is this is not about me, its about us. Shadesbreath you said I was pretending to care, well your wrong, why do I get so passionate and upset when everyone negates my idea? because its those who negates it that need it the most... the people who didn't negate it but actually contributed some ideas that didn't need it, those people like me are here to help,

      Now you can go on with your forum posting hub building without a cause if you want, but I'd like to do all that and also make some money, and I'd like others to do the same. I've taken your backstabbing actions (DJ) and your insults (alot of you) and your mean cold irrational behavior posts, and here I stand still trying to help you, why? why should I? Because I don't hold a grudge.. you may but that's not me.. sure I get upset when people are rude, who doesn't?

      You can attack me for starting threads like this, but you seem to be free to do it yourself, why? because everyone likes jimmy so its cool that he promotes himself and his hub and his blog site, hmm he does exactly the same thing and you call me self promoting? you applaud him for putting the featured hubber on there? what?! but you bash me for trying to help you make money? Perish the thought, I should be burned at the stake like a warlock? Hypocrits all of you. ESPECIALLY JIMMY.

      Your threads are no different than mine are they jimmy, don't your blogs have adsense? don't you earn from them? hmmm... irony. but im not here to seek revenge or rediculous nay saying, mean talking, blah blah blah... I'm just trying to get through to you... if your going to bash me bash him and all the others who've done exactly the same thing. then lets' get over it, and wipe our wounds while drinking milk and cookies and get back to the point.... Making money. Don't act like its a bad word you all say it, you all want it, you all strive for it every single hub you build...stop being hypocrits and get back to the point.

      you can nay say, but you should take a good look at why it is you hate my idea, is it fear? is it misplaced anger? is it disruption of the lazy posting and hub building many have become so accoustomed to... that has you so upset? or is it because your afraid it will work and you will be the one who doesn't participate or are forced to participate to continue to keep your laptop and easy chair way of life going?

      On a positive note to jimmy (and yes I use your name because you breeched my hub rudely and forced my keyboard but this one is positive for you.. I don't hate you, I hate your attitude but I respect the hell out of your accomplishments. Am I a bit jealous absolutely, you rock bro, your attitude and your work are to me two different issues.. one has no accountability for the other in my eyes. You bichslap me I turn the other cheek (I'm running out of cheeks bro lol)

      Jimmy, you've written 500 hubs, a major undertaking actually I think its over 600 now isn't it? You are a brilliant Hubber, but I know you can generate 2k+ a month with that many hubs easily, or more, you alone could with some promotion and further seo become an icon for the rest of us, You certainly have the popularity, why not use it?

      your hubs are perfect, but they certainly can make more money than they are. Why are you always against me? What is it about me that threatens you? other than your own fears that is... Do you realize I check out your hubs (not to stalk you calm down) to see what it is about your hubs that work? you seem to use every tool in the hubpages monitization arsenal. Yet your broke... no offense. I see such potential, but what is it your not doing yet.. there are many others...your not alone. My goal is to patch those money leaks, so much money leaks out of your hubs if it were fuel the whole dam site would go up in a fire ball!

      For gods sake people wake up, we all have a money making HubPages account and were throwing all this money away because were not trying hard enough, were not working together, and you trash me for trying to unite you? what the hell is that? Hubpages is like this casino but the slot machines are there yet they are all unplugged. the tables are there but no dealers... there are thousands of people in the casino but none of the monitization schemes are working right.... I'm talking about ANYONE who isn't making 2k a month here, INCLUDING myself...

      If Maddie can make 1,000 a month consistently then so can you, she's simply doing something your not, and I aim to find out what that is and put it on my site, don't sit back and wait for me to bring aboard 100k people who will do what your not doing and show you up, take over your forum and have more to show for their efforts, this is your site, your community, your chance, you can sit there and continue to do what you've always done or you can change something and actually have MONEY to report in the forum. We should all be bragging about our money, but how many are? Hmmm

      In conclusion if you come in here and have nothing but bitterness and negativity to post, nothing positive and uplifting, nothing helpful to say then don’t post, if you do then you are part of the problem here on HubPages, why people are not making money… be a part of the solution. Your negative words only bring negative reactions, responses, why would you do that?

      I only brought up my few negitive comments in this post to put it out there to defuse the bomb and to show how rediculous it is that were bickering at one another for no reason, selfish pride? rediculous opinions? not everybody is a scammer jimmy. (the last paragraph is not about you but about those who enter my thread and start rediculous fights including myself when I retaliate against said people... you see I'm not excluded in my own words here)

      When you enter a thread and say something mean, stupid, demeaning, demoralizing, or sarcastic what is going through your silly little head?

      Does it give you a rise to make fun of someone else? Do you enjoy getting other people involved in bashing someone? What does this say about you as a person? Think before you type… I’m learning that I need to because oh man, some of you are so dam negative and bitter you really piss me off to no end..

      I eventually get over it and forgive, but its truly ridiculous to enter a positive forum and bring negativity… I would never enter your house and slap your mom, that’s what you do when you enter my thread and have bitter ridiculous things to say. Grow up will you? The sad part is those people don’t even have the patience to read all of this… sigh…

      to end on a positive note.... YOu guys rock, your all going to be thousandaires soon.. soon as you get out there and work as a team. I'm building a hub army, a club of people who make 2k a month (eventually we all will). You can stand there and point and yell at me, but when the club is banned togeter and were all reaping the rewards of our efforts, how will you feel.. we won't be in the forum, we will be out writing more hubs to increase our goals, which we will set to 3k next, then 4 then 5....Join us? or talk crap?

      That is all.... Let freedom ring....

    Looking at your work and your comments in forums I can see that you do know what you are talking about, and I can also imagine that you do make quite a bit of money other places then here. Personally I don't believe that one will be able to build up a solid income stream on hubpages or squidoo at all. I do have a lot of respect for your marketing skills and I really do believe that you know more then a lot of people how to make bigger dollars. I would be really happy to be proven wrong. I think there is earning potentional everywhere, I just doubt that it is very large here. I think what ever you write here is good to use for other income revenues though.

    1. Jerrico Usher profile image55
      Jerrico Usherposted 15 years agoin reply to this

      I'll be blatantly honest with you, it is very possible and honestly its not all that hard, but it is for the most part a waste of resources to put all your earning potential into this site. Why? Because for one your sharing half your income and doing most of the work, however the marketing you will have to do to get the money (because your sharing half your money with HubPages meaning you'd have to do twice the work here to earn what you'd make on your own site using the same traffic promotion etc..)

      That's the skinny of it. Honestly if it were just me, if I were a selfish bastard the forum members have me nailed out to be, I'd never put all this time and effort into HubPages, sure it is a great site, I love it to death but there simply are much more lucrative ways to make money (in fact I'm doing those now and HubPages pales in comparison).

      My ploy here is that many of the HubPages authors are here because they want to make money and they will not for some reason break free from here to actually apply those other resources even though they are free, even if we give them a road map blue print to the wealth building marketing. The irony is it works exactly like HubPages but on your own site, and you keep all the money.

      Now the way I see it they want to learn the hard way and although they have no clue that HubPages is said hard way, they have become so devoted to this site (I can see why don't get me wrong, I broke free but can't leave!!!) that they will put forth 100x the effort to earn here than the 10% they'd have to put forth to earn there (the other resources such as SA which alone could with 1/10th the effort could generate for them 10 grand a month easy)

      My goal here is to show them how to make the money on HubPages, I know many will actually work through it and I've found a way to make it incredibly easy too. Once they learn the Seo and the system it will click in their head that this is the hard way (this is 100 hubs or so later when they do generate a 2k a month income) and they will realize (because I'm going to show them what their missing like SA and other things) that they've been foolish...

      They will then try the other things because HubPages and all that learning has made these other resources seem easy, and it is, so they will put two and two together and will generate a couple grand off HubPages in a months time what took them 8 months on HubPages to do... granted they make 2k a month they will, but they will now have a stream of money to use in the other things anyway, and they will have done everything the hard way, this is the best way to learn anyway right?

      Nothing taught me how to tech a computer like the frustration of crashing my windows 300 times and losing all my most valuable programs, information, and writing for years of work.. gone * poof *

      Anyway I'm curious to see this work myself, I know its the hard way but I too want to learn this way as I know it will truly be a goal I set and accomplished.. like running uphill for a mile, when you reach the top you feel so dam good that you did it. everything else seems downhill from there right?

      In many ways this is the best way to learn, and with my site I'll be bringing in 100k authors over 2 years to learn it, to go through the confidence course, the HubPages boot camp, and they will all have 100 hubs of which I'm affiliated with for signing them up. The current Hubbers I make nothing on them, they already signed up! so their attacks on me are not only ridiculous and unsubstantiated, it really shows where they are in this venture of HubPages- unsuccessful, and bitter because of it, towards anyone who is.

      In the end I will be proud of my 2k a month HubPages account a trophy of my accomplishment will be there. Will all these people give up on HubPages? hell now, they will love it then as much as now, only when they write their hubs they will write them by habit in perfect SEO format, and their promotion will most likely be through SA with all those free services that none of these Hubbers are taking advantage of now. The movement I'm starting hopefully will light a fire under the underbelly of HubPages community to put that potential into motion and to start doing something lucrative with their accounts so the forum may convert from the negative magnet it is now into a bragathon it will become. When you have thousands of people or even just 20 people making 2k a month in the forum bragging, it will motivate others.. I guarantee you that!

      Its going to be a lot of fun, I am excited to see where this goes. The money the site will make later will probably half of it converted into those scholarships I mention on the website linked to in the SamurWriter portal smile its a beautiful thing... Its a pet project for me not a money maker, but I can actually see it becoming very lucrative and it will probably change the face of HubPages later as it will bring in so many new authors which means new hubs which means more money which means HubPages will do some pretty fantastic things to compete and keep HubPages on top...

      did I segment there.. sorry I love to indulge in my vision of the future...

      You ever notice how I always in my hubs, posts everywhere capitalize the H and the P in HubPages? I think we should all capitalize on hubs and pages  (get it?)

        I use hubpages to make me money through other income streams and I send people that I teach to watch the forums here. As this I find is the easiest place to show people what and what not to do. There are however a lot of writers here I do believe make a lot of money.

        Either way I have a bit of experience webdesign is definitly my weakest point, but if you ever need assistance to show people how to recognize earning potentional and income streams or driving traffic let me know. I'm not selling anything but I'm more then happy to help people that want to learn the basics out. One thing to remember though Jerrico, don't waste time on people that don't listen the only thing they do is take up your time.

          You got that right brother, but if you look at my posts you will notice one thing the loud mouths don't seem to understand but you got it right away.

          I don't preach to the dead minded. When I post a thread I'm not speaking to those people who aren't listening, I'm talking to the people that frequent the forum all the time. I notice we have alot of new people popping into the forum all the time, I know those others will pop in just to hear the sound of their post and they prey for others to join in and bash me for my efforts, but I'm learning to ignore them and wait for those poeple like you who are truly worth my time and energy smile

          I'm not a quitter, I take alot of crap from people but it doesn't phase me (ambition wise) I'm learning not to get heated over their rediculous comments. but if you think about it you entered my thread, offered alot of insight, so had I let those others of luckily in this thread ther were only one, I'd of missed out on meeting some interresting hubbers. I'm Jerrico by the way. Fan time smile I add fans from forum comments all the time, my fan base is focused and a bunch of great people.

          I do too, hubpages is actually one of those free services I use to drive traffic back to my adsense sites smile you can do powerful stuff with hubpages without breaking tos, including traffic funneling (moving traffic in a circle to your hubs) and release (out to your site)... its a secret I learned in the Niche Domination course... hehe (I won't tell that was an expensive course but maybe I'll tell my peeps later)

    Jerrico, I confess I first came here because I was looking of ways to make money online and when you say: "I don't go to a job, I make a lot of money sitting at home writing articles, blogs, and building sites..." I wish I could say likewise. I don't go to a job but sit at home writing articles but am not making a lot of money at all but living on far below the average income here, which is very frustrating seeing as people keep telling me how knowledgeable I am and what an interesting writer I am!
    I would LOVE to be able to make 1,000 a month! I am not even halfway to my first 100. Knowing I am not alone in making little for my writings is no comfort!
    So I applaud your efforts and also wish you the very best of luck with cracking the route to success and money!

      Join us, were going to make HubHistory... Since the forum here is often so negative I will be starting a forum on my site for the "club" of hubbers who actually want to make money, I invite you to join my SamurWriter fan club and leave fan mail so I know you want to hook up with the "cause". I'll help you get there brother, we all will, so far there are about 8 of us, I'm using two beta testers and my self to generate the "example" accounts that actually show the money/earnings, then I will bring the rest of you guys aboard to do the same, I'll even set up a mentoring program using the club as a self sufficient brotherhood of a sort to show each other what is missing from the hubs, etc... I feel your frustration but I'm not going to sit back any more and feel frustrated myself.. this club is me taking action.. the ball is in your court...good luck at any rate smile

      With the quality of your writing and your skills you have the potential to reach those goals, you just need to look around learn about different avenues and earning potentials to be able to separate facts from fluff. When you have learnt that you will see how Jerrico is probably making a lot more money then most people here. I've spotted it straight away. You only need to learn the ways to earn that don't require any significant amounts for start up, and stay away from google adwords until you really have learnt SEO properly. If you don't it can cost you a lot of money. Watch different forums and look at the comment, compare those comments and personality types with successful peoples attitude's. That will show you who knows what they are talking about and who isn't. I have a lot of respect for what Jerrico does and hopefully he will prove me wrong that you can earn solid amounts on hubpages.

        Thank you for the compliments, although I am not yet wealthy I do make enough to live very comfortably, and I'm on my way to the six figure income most likely by march we'll see.. but he's right about that adwords thing. There are things out there that work incredibly well but if your not well versed in what your doing you could lose a lot of money, its a lot like a seasoned person playing the stock market and a part time day trader who hobbies at it... that's the first comparison that comes to mind

        The thing I'm really starting to think about my HubPages training ground/boot camp of a sort is that it will be the least risky way to learn everything, nothing I'm going to show people will cost a dime, the beauty of the web is that although there are advanced ways to speed up the process that cost, the beginner should steer clear of them until they've graduate the proverbial "high school"... as a beginner your in SEO kindergarten, you should make use of web 2.0 sites and free promotional things like blogspot, squidoo, article submission sites, url submissions, link exchanges, and about a hundred others.

        I actually use a system that doesn't use those paid systems it networks about a hundred of the free ones and generates tremendous traffic (although I have just started using these and have not yet applied these to HubPages I'm about to)... the thing is you don't have to spend money at first, build your capitol, put in the time, you won't make money probably for your first year, that is your school time, this is experience time, learning, applying things.

        Get out there and play with these free sites, they cost nothing, what do you have to lose. The top Internet Marketers use these same tools, because they are powerful, they are free and they work. The only reason they use ad words and pay per click is because once you've amassed  a wad of money it just makes sense to leverage your time and outsource the work, work in writing articles, blogs, in advertizing with Google ads... its a step by step process.

        The more I put into this thing I'm doing the more I realize this is actually a safe way to help people learn the tricks without risking anything. were going to be writing hubs to put things into practice. For example to learn keyword saturation we will write 5 hubs. The first one will be learning to build a title that is SEO compliant using your keyword, and using the keyword 3% in your article and in your picture subtext and the pictures title (what you name it before you upload it not the top title part)...

        My dad is my first guinea pig and he's an absolute beginner in all this SEO and writing stuff. He wrote his first blog today actually and this was an interactive process with me in yahoo messenger. He wrote it I helped him tweak it and made sure he understood what he didn't do the first round. He will write 4 more practicing this first lesson, by the 5th he will have that technique learned, then we will do another one but incorporate the first in the lesson.

        Eventually we will have all the techniques learned then it will be about going off HubPages to learn what tools are available and how to use them... this process could take a year to complete but he will be skilled by that time I promise you. if you want to see his site it's here.. his writing needs some work but I think he did a dam good job on it.. hes with me in SA building adsense sites so he's learning things you won't be yet, (hence his link out to his adsense site).

        here it is:

        http://hubpages.com/hub/Some-Tips-on-Wr … e-Internet

        this is his first hub too, this is the quality of my training.. pay attention to the three things I told him to do:

        Develop a keyword in this case it is: Tips on writing
        Use it 10 times in the blog including the picture subtext (words under pictures)
        you can't see it but I told him to use the keyword as the name of the picture before uploading so he did, he named it tips on writing 1 and tips on writing 2.

        I told him to write the hub with 400 words and use several text capsules with bold titles/headings

        I told him to italicize the keyword the first time he used it (he did it the second but ok)

        and I told him to put in two backlinks out of HubPages (he put them to his adsense site) one on top and one on bottom. He one upped me using a bullet list (nice!)

        My parents are dirt poor, the mice had to move out because their simply wasn't any food, when my dad makes 2,000 a month on HubPages and 10k a month on SA I will be in seventh heaven because I've helped my family out. I'll feel the same way when I help my extended family on HubPages out.

        the most powerful point I want to make here is its not what you know its practicing it, you can learn SEO all day but until you DO IT it won't matter one bit. the point of HubPages training is you will do it naturally by doing what your doing now- Writing hubs. its a beautiful platform.

    I've rarely seen the forums or HubPages be "negative."  I think there are people who watch out for very optimistic or exaggerated claims and who put forth their opinions when things are said that, while cheerfully hopeful, might lead to dissapointment for a new or inexperienced hubber whose start-up energy might surpass their wisdom and ability to parse the massive stream of information being thrown at them. 

    It's not "negative" to look at an idea from all angles and express doubts based on experience, perspicacity, wisdom, knowledge, education or logic. Good ideas prove themselves without much sales pitch, the cream rising to the top of the pale etc.

      I agree with you and I see what your saying, but this forum has people who don't just come out with all angles they downright bring a very negative almost combative feel to their opinions which is uncalled for. Just because some don't see it don't make it not there. I've actually while I was on forum vacation most of the year because I was banned I heard alot of my fans talking about the forum and how everyone is always bickering and being mean and putting each other down etc. etc.. I didn't believe it till I stepped back in here and honestly you guys are wonderful people, I know you don't mean to be assholes but sometimes you come off as just that.

      Jimmy is a nice guy, I know this, but to me he is just always a jerk, granted he's had his moments where he's shown me an ounce of respect but no matter what I do he jumps in there and tries to push my buttons and for what? his opinion? no. Sometimes it is best not to talk, I know this, I could have avoided all that hub bub in my other thread had I simply walked away and zipped it... he told me in my own thread to take it to the email and leave the other hubbers alone then today he walks in with his spiteful remark, theres no call for that kind of thing.

      He wrote a negative hub about our community "decline" and I responded back then with my own hub about how he was wrong (I take it he never got over this) that it was a simple misunderstanding of different cultural concepts around what is debate and what is being rude.. I won't get into this you can read the hub here:

      http://hubpages.com/hub/Whats-happening … -Community

      Here was Jimmy's:


      I get what he was saying and I wasn't saying anything but that he was being negative about the situation (this was about 5 months after I was banned so I had no idea what was really going on in here).. I'll let you decide for yourself.. let the hubs speak for us smile

      Do i think all these negitive remarks are coming from people who are just cold hearted jerks? Not at all, the irony is they are actually probably very nice people offline and for the most part online but something happens to people behind the computer screen and they get nasty, bitter, cold hearted, they do things, say things they wouldn't say in person in a million years...

      It's not so much their remarks but when others back their BS that really peeves me, its like johnny slaps billy and the other kids condone it and laugh so Johnny slaps him again then before you know it all the kids are fighting. It's rediculous and it has to stop in this forum. I'm not blind and there are ALOT of people complaining about the way people act here, to the point where they are starting off hubpages forums to talk about it... that too is rediculous, that is called a virus, taking the bickering to another host (lol I couldnt pass up the pun opportunity).

      I wrote a hub about this that shows I get it, different people, different countries, we have different idyosincrocies, different concepts of what is rude and what is debate, I know this, in fact I may  be an example of taking you wrong shadesbreath, my concept of your words was rude but you were simply giving your opinion, your intention wasnt to be rude at all right? I get it, that's not what I'm referring to, if you scroll up to jimmy's remark their is no validating that as a simple opinion that was an opinion wrapped in an insult period.

      but there are things said and done that are blatntly bickering.

    Jerrico -

    You yourself have said that in 10 months you made no money from your hubs. You are now hyping this fantastic money making system that will earn you $2,000 a month.

    I for one would be far more impressed if you had already done it rather than say you are going to try to learn how to do it.

    Especially when you talk of "unleashing the beast," and "flood the traffic."

    Guess what? I am trying to learn how to make $20K a month smile

    I am not being "negative," here.

    Merely pointing out the facts amongst the hype and arguments  you are generating. I certainly wish you luck in your endeavor, but a little less hype and a lot more work and proven results would probably not attract the "negativity," you think you are getting.

    And lets face it - you are not a man of your word. Just a few days ago you said you were voluntarily leaving the forums for 2 weeks after generating negative "attacks" on you - only to be back doing the same thing a few days later.

      Jerrico Usherposted 15 years agoin reply to this

      Point taken mark, I get a bit excited and sometimes don't realize that as you said, proof is in the pudding so to speak... I don't mean to hype it up just trying to get my point across as to the mission.. I want people to get excited and to make money here, but I hear you and you make sense. I guess they are being more negative and argumentative with me because I have nothing to show for my hype... makes sense now that I think about it.  But on my site I make it very clear that I'm also in training here and I'm just trying to break the code...

      I guess sometimes it takes a lot to stir people up to join a cause, there are always those who are against it without proof, others love to ride the faith train like I do.. in my head however this is already done, I just have to arrive through the manifestation process, but in my vision it will not be done alone, it will be done with a club of people and together we will set a prescience.. alone I may not do much... there are several examples of people making 1,000 or 2,000 but how many Hubbers do you see following in their footsteps? their hubs are right there to copy (not plagiarize but copy the formulation of their money making scheme)...

      I think that if I arrive at 2k a month alone people may be amazed sure, but they won't do it thinking I'm just an anomaly, a freak of nature, another dale Carnegie or Anthony Robbins, whom also told people I just applied what I'm teaching you!

      So my thing is this Mark, band at least 20 people together, we do this thing full force as a team, when we all hit that 2k mark (no pun) people will stop and realize wait, if they did it so can I, I mean look at the diverse types of people in that group... wait I can join that group and they will help me too.. and we will... do you see what I mean here? It's the most difficult thing in the world to do what I'm trying to do, not the HubPages earnings I think that will be semi easy, but to get others involved with no proof of success... well.. I know I'll have to fight many battles to reach my goal, then I'll disappear and come back with the 20 success stories smile

      buhahahaha.... *Smiles*  I appreciate your tact in your post by the way, your a cool cat. Kind of like Felix the cat, he was cool too.
