Professional Hub-Pager?

Updated on April 17, 2016

Make money online with HubPages - Tutorial

I Am Trying To Build My Empire

When you are writing, the children, husband, friends and family do not really think you are working. I chose this subtitle appropriately as it came from a response to my daughter when she said, “you are not working, you are on Hub Pages.” I have been reading every Hub I could Find on earnings in hopes of making my Hubs more successful. There are lot of useful, well written Hubs that will guide you. Hopefully this will be one.

What I have learned so far:

1. You need to write well. Write your Hub and read it aloud before publishing. (No grammar, spelling or punctuation errors)

2. Be creative, write about what interests you and will interest other people.

3. You need to write a summary for each Hub

4. You need to include E-Bay and Amazon capsules to each Hub, I try to add two of each capsule. Mix and mingle them to go along with the information you are writing about.

5. If you are writing Recipes utilize the special layout options.

6. Include a Video if appropriate.

7. Include photo’s that can dress your article up.

8. Include links that can validate your information.

9. Get involved in the Hub Community: do some hub hopping, leave legitimate and sincere feedback, acknowledge your commenter’s, and answer Hub Community Questions. Write Often. In the first few weeks I was writing a Hub a day.

10. Advertise your work. Share your Hubs on any social media site you belong to and continue to look for new ones that will allow you to post a link to each of your Hub articles. I am currently using Facebook, Pinterest and Reddit to plug my articles, and I am always on the look out for a good social media site. Many sites want you to post articles on their site, not links to your already written articles. You cannot have duplicate published material online, so choose wisely where you want your articles to live.

11. Use backlinks to Hubs that are alike in nature, this is a way to drive more traffic to each of your Hubs.

12. Evaluate your Hubs, I may be obsessed, but everyday I make time to look at my account and see what Hubs are lagging. I may change the title, or add more information.



I am still new to the Hub Pages Community, but when I first began this writing experiment my initial goal was to have an over-all Hub Score of 90, now I would like to be at a 100. It is a work in progress, as I learn something new every day.

I cannot really tell you what to expect, I can only show you what my earnings have been so far:

Writing is Bliss

I just learned last week that I should be including E-Bay and Amazon capsules, so we will see if the earnings increase from this added factor. I know that it is not yet substantial, but I have only been on Hub Pages for two months. It gives me hope that the more I write, and the more people I reach the earnings will continue to grow. The main reason I am on Hub Pages is to write, it is bliss for me to write articles about the world, events, and items of interest. The earnings are an added bonus.

      Amy,If you found someone that neeedd it to complete a bed you might get as much as fifty dollars. No dealer that I am aware of would bother putting it in stock owing to the extremely limited market. You should go to Google Images and search “Simmons bed spring”. One or more might turn up and might have some dollar information connected. The spring is probably 60-80 years old and made so well that it is still useful. You can put a zippered cover over it for cleanliness and use it as a box spring.Good Luck,Marshall

      A very good Hub...I agree with you 100% especially creating more links within HubPages as well as from authority sites pointing back to your hubs. ..I was there about 3 months ago (where your earnings are) I have been able to increase to 8 times (your current earnings shown above) for the last 3 months. I can only say one thing about making money with HubPages ......DO YOUR KEYWORD RESEARCH RIGHT ....target the long tail keywords forget the short keywords Hope this helps you get better results. Thank you

      I found the article informative. I am new to hub pages, but writing is something I have been doing for a long time. I have enough hobbies that cost money, I figured if I was to get serious about writing, I was going to try the opposite. Thanks for laying some groundwork for me.

      Thank you so much for reading, I love the interaction here too. And People have always been really nice to me. At first I was really shy about my writing, I have always been fearful of not being good enough- wow I have never said that aloud:) That is why I didn't go into journalism, I have a Bachelor's in Management, but I would rather write any day!!! Good luck with your adventure~ Kimberly

      Awesome tips. :) I'm not exactly new on hubpages but I've only recently decided to really get involved and try to build up some residual income here. Plus I love the fact that people actually read and interact with each other here. There is a lot of interesting information on hubpages...I learn something new here every day. :)

      Thanks Josh, it's a work in progress as I learn more about navigating the wonderful world of Hub publishing. There were several areas I was lacking when I first started, because I didn't know. I figured this would help the even newer bees. Thanks for reading and commenting~ Kimberly

      Thank you, I am still working on it. I am trying to really capitalize on what social media sites I can utilize to plug my articles- I think the key is writing quality Hubs and driving the traffic to your Hubs to read you articles. I appreciate your comments, best of luck to you~ Kimberly
