Legit Online Article Writer Revenue

When writing online articles, the content should to be of good quality. The content also have to be useful for your readers, everyone wants to read content that is of good quality and that is useful to them as a reader. Good quality content can mean 'staying on the subject,' also good quality can mean making sure your content has correct grammar and no spelling mistakes. Some writers may use 'Microsoft Word' to help check the grammar and spelling of their online articles. Microsoft Word also has 'word count' at the bottom of each document. A good written article can have at least 700 or more words of content.

Try to always write valuable and unique content, never steal anyone else's content. Being a unique writer is writing on subjects that no one has really wrote about. For instance, if the competition for Real Estate is high, create a low competition title such as "Real Estate in the Valley of California." Selling houses would have to be a topic that you know something about, to share your knowledge with an online audience, or your research on that subject.

As a writer, never admit to having 'writer's block' it is a slap to you as an artist. Writing about things that you have talent and skill in, is a great idea. Everyone has talents, gifts, and skills; and Hubpages is where you can write about them. If you are good at cooking, write unique ideas and recipes about your art in cooking.


Making Money with Hubpages

Legitimate ways of making money online won't happen over-night. But it does take commitment, a great attitude, creativity, and drive. Some members on Hubpages drive themselves to writing many articles in a certain time frame. During my fun time here on Hubpages, one month I challenged myself to write at least 3-4 Hubs a week. If you're serious about making money with Hubpages, you will have to set goals to be a better content writer each day. When I started Hubpages I didn't know that much about everything here, but I learned a few things every day.

My mentor here on Hubpages is Kathryn Vercillo, she's been writing for Hubpages for about 5 years, she wrote 1,147 Hubs and still in counting. Also Kathryn wrote for other sites, but she eventually left them to write only for Hubpages. She makes approximately $1,500 a month as an online article writer with Hubpages. There's one more thing that made her my mentor on Hubpages, she crochets as a hobby like I do. I often crochet a few items as Kathryn does, this made me more interested in her Hubs due to the common interest.

Then there's Marye Audet another fellow Hubber, she makes an estimated $3,800 monthly here on Hubpages. She's been on Hubpages for 4 years, wrote only 742 Hubs. And she says that "SEO search engine optimization and keyword phrases helps her with the success of her articles." These are just a couple of the Hubbers that never gave up on writing article content online.

Joining Hubpages is easy, it's worth it, it's legit, and it will eventually pay off for your satisfaction by consistent work. Winners do things that losers will never do. Never give up as a Hubpages content writer, work for it and it will work for you. As an article content writer you should "never quit your day job" because writing articles online will be a side job, until you are making enough revenue to 'make a living' of it.

Many 'article content writers' don't see writing articles as work; most of us see it as fun and creativity. Be enthusiastic about writing articles for Hubpages, because it is fun.

Adsense Account

As an online article writer you will need to set up an Adsense account with Google. Begin by going to your 'account tab' here on Hubpages, then click configure. Follow the instruction through Google Adsense, and they will have you set up quickly. You can also set up configuration for other affiliates; with Amazon, and eBay.


Hubpages SEO

Learning all there is to know about search engine optimization will help you make money on Hubpages. SEO will get you more visitors to your articles. It's not about having the most number of written articles, but it's even better when using SEO. For example, one Hubber can have 100 articles written with not so many views, and another Hubber can have 50 articles but uses SEO tips; this will definitely get this Hubber more views.

Search engine optimization can include mentioning part of your articles title throughout your article. Mention your article's title at least 4 times throughout your Hubs. Your title is your main keyword.


Comment on Hubbers Articles

Once you start following other Hubbers, there will be Hubbers that will follow you also. When a Hubber comments on your articles, as a common-courtesy you would comment back on one of their articles as well. Commenting and replying might help your Hub-score, and it will let other Hubbers know that you are quite active here on Hubpages.


Using Hubpages Search Bar

If you need to brush up on your article writing skills, as we all do, use the Hubpages search bar to type in "Grammar tips for article writing." Actually you can use the "Hubpages search bar" to type in whatever you want to look for.

There are other people making money with Hubpages that are not mentioned above. I will list their names and their Hubpages money earnings below, (mentioning 3 Hubbers).

If you want to visit the "FAQ" frequently asked questions, go to the tab at the top of this page; hover over your profile name. This will help you with questions you have about Hubpages. I've been on Hubpages going on 15 months now, and I still keep reading and learning new things in the "Hubpages Learning Center." Visit it as much as you can, take notes as well. To be successful as an article content writer you will be happy that you did visit the "Hubpages Learning Center."


Online Forums

To get more visitors to your article is a good idea to visit related topic forums, for your Hubs. If you wrote an article about 'boats' then you would want to go to online forums about boats. When you're in other online forums, leave your hub url's with your comments, or in your signature.

Also plant your Hub URL's in the social media sites such as: Digg, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Google Plus, etc.

      I've really enjoyed writing for Hubpages over the past couple of months and I'm looking forward to continuing to write new hubs in the near future! You gave some great pointers that we can all use. I find myself checking the FAQ frequently just to educate myself on the site. I will have to check out the answers more and the forums, though!

      This is a very complete article and very useful for newbies. Even know I've been writing on HubPages for four years now, I am always interested in discovering some new information. It is true that there are a number of people who are doing exceptionally well with income from HubPages. And it goes to show that others can do it if they put their mind to it. And the time. Good work on our hub!

      Hi CarNoobz I agree, that seems to be part of the formula for making money on Hubpages plus writing unique content. Writing about things that no one else has really wrote about is a great idea, but there will still be a nice size audience for that topic. Thanks CarNoobz 4 your comment.

      Looks like the "secret" to making money on hubpages is just to publish hundreds of hubs using keywords and then stick around for 2 or more years.

      I can do that =) Voted up

      Hi WannaB, I've read some of your Hubs, and you're a great writer. Yeah guess it's good to set a monthly goal, to have a Hubpages challenge; to push ourselves to write more articles. Thanks for commenting.

      I didn't realize how much money could be made here. I'd better keep plugging away, since I don't even have 100 hubs yet.

      Hi Moneytoplist, thanks the tip on Firefox spell checker extension, and thanks for reading this article.

      There is a very good alternative to MS Word if you need a spell checker. You can install Firefox spell checker extension which works in the website forms. It works fine in the text capsules.
