Hubpages Works

Updated on January 23, 2011

On the 12th of February 2009 I decided, finally, that publishing articles at HubPages would be far more profitable for me than publishing them elsewhere. It was never a question of me finding the time or the inspiration to write, it was about where I would publish them, what would make me the most money.

This hunch has paid off. I don't need to say by how much, I know you all believe it when I say that it's worth the effort. And I don't have to work harder, just smarter, to make the money increase. I know given the time I invest, that I'll be making more next month than I did this month.

And one of the reasons, I believe, that makes HubPages a great place to be, is that the competition is healthy. We are not competing with each other for a piece of the revenue pie. My ad impressions are my ad impressions. Visitors click during those impressions are 100% attributed to my account. It's not being redistributed to others who happen to be performing better because the community are voting for their article. I don't need to be part of the "in crowd" or be admitted into the exclusive clubs or participate in some clique. There is no cap or limit to how much my hub can make with Adsense. The only limit it that which is determined by its quality on the world stage and how much traffic I can get. Be it by promoting it through back links and/or how well it can rank in Search Engines. I much prefer organic traffic anyway.

Since the 12th of February up until today I have (under other accounts in addition to my primary account) published 365 hubs. This is significant to me because if I were to stop publishing right now for the rest of the year I would have averaged one hub a day for the entire year. But of course I won't be stopping at 365. I've got almost 3 months before the year runs out, and that's worth another 100 hubs to be added to my tally at the rate I'm going.

But it's not about the quantity. It's always about the quality. Though if a person can ever find the time to be able to do both (and it is achievable) I highly recommend it.
