In order to make more than a tiny little bit of money to I need to pay a search engine site or some key word site to generate my traffic? I have read a lot of answers and been redirected to answers but none have answered this. I am stil trying to learn. Thank you anyone who can give me an answer.
In short, no.
However for the non-paying method to work, you do need to write a substantial amount of quality Hubs that cover topics which are useful and helpful to a significant amount of humans (which in turn will make them appealing to search engines all on their own).
If you want to pay "experts" to take care of your keyword research or traffic, you can if you want to (as long as it's not a traffic exchange or some other cheating way; whoever you pay has to help you get traffic legitimately).
However, you don't have to. You can do your own research using google adwords and promote your own works on social media and other websites. There are many hubs out there on promotion and SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Go to Help-> learning center or just search through hubs using the search bar.
Whichever way you go, don't expect to earn a lot right away. Hubpages is about small recurring amounts every day that add up to a lot over time.
i do not want to cheat maybe i asked the question the wrong way...i want to know if we have to pay someone to advertise for us ...i am not looking for a cheater's way at all
I wasn't accusing you. I was honestly warning you that if you do pay for advertisement, that the people you hire do legitimate work. Don't let them use bad things like keyword stuffing, bots, traffic exchanges. Make sure you do your research about who your hire first.
However, spending money is not a requirement for earning here.
No, it is almost certainly not cost effective to pay for advertising for a content site. Just focus on search engine rank and getting good (free) incoming links.

Hi, everyone! I'm making $0.01 per day or even less on some days, and I have already been actively writing Hubs for about two months. I have 14 featured articles so far, I think that I'm doing all I can, or am I? Am I...

I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Maybe it is due to my severe impatience (or my inability to write a decent hub), but by-God I want more traffic! Do my hubs suck? Bad topics? Bad...

But I am wondering why there seems to be competition in the real google world and no competition showing for it in the external keyword tool world?

Curious if it is worth your time, I ran across info on it and didn't know if we could benefit from it.
