Squidoo for Freshers

Updated on March 14, 2015

Squidoo and Hubpages for newbies

Hubpages is one of the best sites I like to write my articles. As writing is my hobby, I spend my leisure time writing articles on top websites. Some of the best sites I prefer for writing are Squidoo, Ezine Articles, and on my personal web blog.

For beginners who are new to writing and looking for a writing career in web, I suggest Squidoo as the best writing sites as you can have many advantages with Squidoo. This lens Squidoo and Hubpages for freshers is dedicated to all newbies who have joined Squidoo and don't have an idea of how to earn from Squidoo.

#1 How to get started with hubpages

Starting your first hub with hubpages

Hubpages is one website which is very much useful for writers, business and marketing owners and work from home moms, freelancers etc. People from all over the world and all ages use hubpages. Hubpages is so popular for writers because they learn new things and maintain new contacts. People have the chance to meet the experts from all over the world. But how to get started with hubpages and write your first hub is more important

I wrote my first lens in Squidoo in 2010 (merged with hubpages) and regularly used to update my lenses. The main secret of success in Squidoo and Hubpages is how fresh your content is and how active you are in the community. More active you are, more is the chance for your lenses to be found by everyone

If you have not started your hub yet, then get started with your first hub now.

#2 Google Adsense

Big Earners for Hub Masters

Google Adsense is one of the top revenue generating sources for Hubs. Based on your hubs rankings, your hubs are categorized into different grades. Hubbers earn money when readers click on the Advertisements in your pages.

For Example, you will see Google Ads around in this lens at the top and also in the sidebar. If your readers find any Google Ad useful and Click on that Ad, you earn good money from your lens.

Infolinks Ads

Another Big Earning Tips

Infolinks Ads are another way to earn huge revenue from your hubs. To earn huge money from Infolink Ads, you need to write articles with high paying keywords. For this you need to know about the top Keyword research tools in Internet. If you don't know about them, read the lens Top Keyword research tools in Internet which tells you about top keyword research tools in Web.

Coming to Infolinks Ads, they are text Ads that are underlined for some of the keywords in your lens. If you are reading this hub, you may find some words in this lens which are double underlined with green. If your readers find the pop up Ad useful and click on that Ad, you earn revenue. This was another highly paying way in squidoo (previously now merged with hubpages)
