      I've done the math.  I've only got 725,761,319 hubs to go.

        It's not linear. Once you get past more than 50 Hubs it starts growing with geometric progression. But two Hubs isn't going to get you anywhere. Keep writing quality hubs and you'll get there. Work at it. It won't happen by itself.

          Any reason why the magic number is 50?

    Writing more than 2 hubs will help.

      2 hubs a day or week?

        2 hubs a week would be great.  2 hubs a day would be greater.  Google loves fresh content.

      I'm pretty new at this as well, but it's easy to see that you want quantity, while keeping quality. Looks to me like it would take several hundred Hubs to begin making some money. I've also started posting my links around on different sites and the seems to help. My plan is to just keep learning from those that are successful and try to be as prolific as possible. Good Luck

    The only way is traffic.  Look at your ecpm and multiply it out. That's what you will need.

    The best way is to get good traffic and using strong keywords.

    Read the hubs by sunforged on how to make money on hubpages.

    Probaly the best ones Ive read to date.

    No offence to anyone, but some really great direction for newbies there.

      I don't know.  Has he updated them to reflect the situation post-Panda?

      There is a LOT of advice out there that doesn't apply now.

      I used to make around $1,000 a month, with $700-$800 coming from Adsense.  That's been cut drastically after Panda.  '

      I'm sure some of SF's advice is still very good, but it may need updating.  I've been slowly combing through my old stuff, looking for things that need adjustment in light of our new world, and SF may very well have done the same, but my point is that it has to be done, so you need to take everything by anyone with a healthy does of skepticism.

          Ayup.   I wish he'd notice this and let people know if he has updated or at least looked them over - they may not need any updating at all for all I know.

            Google alerts dont seem to pick up hub forums as quick as they use to..

            I cant be sure which hubs are really "how to hubs"

            It was rare that I made hubs that were specific to just hubpages although often the hubpage format was used to illustrate a concept that could be used anywhere on the web.

            I would guess the reference would be to the 60dc series, primarily the series focused on revisiting and tweaking hubs, focusing on quality and attempting to network with other writers for editorial support ..

            I think the series is more about marketing techniques and introduces external resources like blogger/twitter etc then it is about any specific hub practices or seo techniques that may have lost effectiveness post-panda.

            All the keyword and branding info is evergreen, the formatting tips, evergreen, on page seo - in my case evergreen as I just showed how to translate respected resources like seomoz in relation to the hub format (hubpages tags are not meta-tags, capsule headers are h2, etc)

   … ing-online

            If this was the series referenced ... the only Post-Panda revisions i would make would involve the introduction to other "adsense sharing' sites that used to be viable sources of some adsense earnings and a means to access other traffic funnels , most of the sites mentioned were damaged by Panda and likely no longer worth any effort ... but they were only intended as examples that would be easily accessible to hub users, the comments in most of my older hubs will have mention of such things by myself and visitors.

            What did Panda really change? Really, it just seemed to have strictly and quickly enforced what google had claimed previously to care about.... and the ability of poor content (by google metrics) to drag a whole site/subdomain down

            I always suggested that one should work smarter and better then their comp - and that included being smart about user interaction, attractive design and making sure that content matched the promise of a title.

            You know, now that i thought about it .. i dont really have any "how to hub" hubs!  ... i have "how to write and market online" hubs

            i always tried to reference leading experts/sites in that series external to my own experiments,so i would hope the series will still be a viable intro and a means to suggest different ways of thinking/designing when making the transition to "online" publisher

              "What did Panda really change? Really, it just seemed to have strictly and quickly enforced what google had claimed previously to care about."

              I can't stress this enough.

              I've got the same marketing plan as I had before panda and I've had nothing but growth since I started here.

    Perseverance and hard work - who said making money on the internet was easy?? Its the same as any other "JOB", the harder you work at at the better you will do!

      Yes. I spent months of time where I barelly made anything. Now I am finally making several hundred of month, athough it's hard to determine what I will make exactly.

      I would suggest he learns SEO and writes a lot of articles or creates a website.

    Jeeeeez.  Three Hubs published, and you have the nerve to ask this question?  Could you possibly be putting the bucks before the writing???  The last time you asked, it was all about making $100.  Good luck, Bud.

    Check out some of the hubs by Susana S., she is great as well.  Also, there is a reason people here keep advising you to write, write, write, and pay attention to SEO.

    you have to chose topics with high CPM. I made a Hub about it if anyone is interested. You will see which topics pay from my list

    selected niche,
    targeted audience
    quality contents
    active interaction
    plus traffic tactics
    then money should come on its way
    money doesn't rest, do we?

    Quality and quantity is both important. One Hub with tons of traffic is better than tons of hubs with no traffic.

  13. David 470 profile image82
    David 470posted 11 years ago

    Get articles that get 100-5000 views per day. Yes, this is possible. However, many articles that generate 1000s of views are either rare or will only remain at that level temporarily.

    CPM needs to be 2.50+ "ideally. If your CPM is lower you can still make money, but you will need more traffic to compensate.

    Find specific topics that are highly searched, and if possible, are low competetion. Losing weight topics get highly searched, but that niche is very competetive.

    My suggestion to you is to "work hard", but make sure the work you are putting in is worth it. You may have to experiement like I did in 2010. I worked a lot on articles, but did not make much because my SEO was bad etc...

    Last December vs this December my earnings have dropped about 98% mostly due to the panda update. Hubs that included product reviews and alike greatly suffered in traffic this year.

    Personally, I think if you have good quaility content and provide a lot of info fo rthe user this is the way to go.  When you write a hub or blog page ask yourself,"How does this best help the user" I think Google wants you two provide an experience that is most beneficial for the user.  This is your "give" your earnings is the "take". Just my 2 cents.
