How many Hubs do you need to make a living from Hubpages?

Updated on March 14, 2012

How many Hubs do you need to write a day? A week?

Every writer on Hubpages wants the same thing: To make money writing online. However, few will actually make enough money to say that they are successful at this business.

I constantly keep asking myself this question, and answering this question for other fellow hubbers: when did I start making enough money from Hubpages to not worry about money in general, and How many hubs did it take for me to get there?

Well, I'm going to answer these questions and MORE on this hub!

How do you make a living from Hubpages?

Although I have yet to find the "magical" way of making money online, other than simply by writing, and sharing my work with other writers, I can honestly say that between the beginning of LAST year, and beginning of THIS year, I have gotten a little bit more lucky in a sense.

Do not get me wrong, I have been working almost every single day since I started my freelance business. The word: "Vacation" has completely lost its meaning to me, since i haven't had one since the day I had my son!

What I mean from "lucky" is simply this: Since I have been working more, I've noticed a spike on traffic from ALL of my hubs combined, NOT to mention, the immediate traffic that I achieve when I publish MULTIPLE hubs at a time!

When I publish more than one Hub a day, my traffic usually increases between 50 views to a healthy 100 or more. This means that if I were to publish 3 hubs today, I would get more than 400 views. Taking in mind i'm also earning from the Hubpages Earnings program, This means between 3 or 4 dollars a day.

Yes, it may not seem like much to hubbers, and it may seem like a poor excuse for making a living on hubpages, however, I'm ALSO making money from PREVIOUS hubs I've published in the past. This means that for every 10 hubs I've published in the past, I've made over $10 every week.

*Keep in mind, I have more than 90 hubs published. (Not including THIS hub)

So, if we were all paying attention, I didn't start earning money by publishing ONE hub and then moving on to other writing websites. I published hubs about topics that I knew, and made sure I had SEVERAL hubs on each topic!


Answering the question of the day: How many Hubs do you need to make a living from Hubpages?

So, how many do you need?

100? 200? 300?

I've seen Hubbers that have more than 1000 hubs published on Hubpages, however, their names are not mentioned on the "Success stories" section of this Website.

I honestly do not think that there is a certain amount of Hubs that you need to have in order to make money from Hubpages. It doesn't hurt to have more than 100 Hubs to make a great living on here. What DOES matter is the QUALITY of the hubs that you are publishing.

I've made the mistake of thinking that I could publish HUNDREDS of hubs at a time, and watch my income spiral out of control!

Needless to say, it didn't happen.

You need Quality Hubs to start making money on Hubpages. This means that your hubs have to have the kind of Information that readers want to read about, and can understand. You have to cover all of your bases in each Hub.

For example:

If you are writing a "How to" Article, answer every question that your readers could ask on your Hub.

What, Who, when, where and why? If you answer any and all questions on your hubs, then your readers will BOOKMARK your hubs, and come back to read MORE of your articles.

Having Loyal readers is a GREAT way to start making more money on Hubpages.

You need to write Hubs that are filled with useful information to keep readers coming back your work!

Q: So, How many hubs do you need to make money from Hubpages?

A: As many Hubs as you can write with plenty of information to help readers!

It may sound simple, but a lot of Hubbers still experience a lot of problems when they want to increase their income online.

      Deleting old articles while regurgitating 'em back into reformatted/spun hogwash is also considered a good use of time in certain blogging regions of the world... It is also good to engage in real-life scenarios offline from time to time or else you might end up like some of those people that constantly type about making money online that they sure-as-hell ain't making... LOL!

      I think it is also important to spend a fair amount of time also marketing and engaging in relevant conversation with a lot of the other hubbers.

      This is quality content. :)

      Insane Mundane 3 years ago from Earth

      Well, you better hurry because it is about to be erased (or however long it takes to delete Hub activity). If you check out her activity status, it involves a publishing of a non-published Hub entitled "The reason why I am not writing on HubPages anymore." There, you will find that she is going to spend time writing on her Blogspot Blog from Blogger.com instead of Hubpages, so I think that it pretty much answers itself! LOL!

      sometimes...it's a matter of quality than quantity. However if these two will be combined, then there's no doubt in making big amount of money. Nice hub...an inspiration:)

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: Gottcha! Well, you sure got a lot of hubs (900+) to not be getting very many page views. Then again, your low may be another person's high. Well, you could always just start posting a bunch of short posts at Bubblews.com and get a few payouts while they are still paying. I connected with you on your profile over there, a few moments ago.

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: I don't get a lot of page views any more on HubPages. It's been trending downward for a year at least and now it's to the point where I don't care any more.

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: That's why I asked because your adverts look more like AdSense. If you get a lot of page views and not many clicks, you'd probably make more with HubPages Ad Program 'cause their pay-per-impression is much higher.

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: I've not used the HubPages Ad Program. I'm a Google AdSense person. Somehow I have a $.06 balance on the HubPages Ad Program account but how I got it is a mystery.

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: Since her Hub is about making millions on HubPages with 24 featured articles, I must ask you: Do you find more money in going with all AdSense adverts or do you, like most people, find the HubPages Ad Program to be the best option?

      P.S. You've been spotted at Bubblews.com.

    • nicomp profile image

      @insane: yes. Nyah is a lesser-known Pokemon character. See https://hubpages.com/entertainment/10-Things-That-... for more info.

      @Nicomp: Nyah? Ain't that some Japanese Anime slang term? I think it signifies some type of excitement?

      @Nicomp: Well, if you factor in that only 22.6415% of Jessi's Hubs are currently featured with the majority of those being about saturated subjects like making money online, and you add in the fact that she seems to never show up to her own Hubs or this site, for that matter, I'd say that she would need about 3,336 Hubs and to take an educational course on how to write more convincingly. Ha!

      Oh, by the way Nicomp, you never showed up to my Bubble Hub!

    • nicomp profile image

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: We could always use this 'free parking' space too, no? Oh, wait a minute... Neither one of us is getting advert impressions here... How about you comment on my Bubble Hub and I'll comment on yours. By the way, that is the philosophy of that site; if you read my Hub you'll know these things, as I didn't sugar-coat mine like a lot of the other ones I've read thus far.

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: I need yer comments!

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: I see that you have joined the crowd and also wrote a Hub about Bubblews.com. Dang, that particular micro-blogging site has really caused a stir around here of late. I was going to comment on yours a few moments ago, but figured I'd just comment on my own Bubble Hub since everyone seems to have one nowadays... Ha!

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: Is that the committee? That Mark Ewbie Boobie character is the one that recently deleted one of my comments on his boobless bubble promoting Hub. Some people just didn't get enough attention as a child, I suppose.

      Well anyway, thank you, I guess?

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: I don't know what you look like. You have been anointed as the Official Hub Counter by me and UninvitedWriter. And Mark Ewbie.

      Keep up the good work.

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: What do I look like, the designated Hub Counter for HubPages?

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: I have all mine displayed. Surely you could have counted to 900 but I saved you a few minutes.

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: By using deductive reasoning, if the amount of hubs listed on their profile is less than the numerical amount shown, it is fair to say that they have been Hubslapped with some No-index tags.

      Oh, and counting to 24 wasn't that hard. I graduated Gorilla School!

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: I am not from Coolville, as my epic episodic saga of Coolville hubs explains very explicitly.

      How do you know if someone has elected to display all their hubs or not? Did you count all her hubs one-by-one?

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: If you go to edit your profile, you can change that setting so it shows ALL of your hubs - whether they have been backlashed with a no-index tag or not - that way you can still look cool and all published and stuff. LOL! In your case, you have so many Hubs, your profile is going to look like you're from Coolville, regardless.

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @insane: They didn't cover this stuff in Chimpanzee Calculus: I went to public school.

      I didn't know that a profile only listed the hubs without NOINDEX. It's good that you know that and you are so willing to share.

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: On her profile; where else would I have looked, in a magic hat?

      P.S. Yeah, but not as hard as Chimpanzee Calculus, and about the same as Baboon Trigonometry...

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: Listed where?

      PS: I took Monkey Physics in grad school... challenging course.

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      @Nicomp: No, I just counted the ones listed; if she has it set to show non-featured hubs, then all 106 would have been listed. It ain't monkey physics...

    • nicomp profile image

      nicomp really 4 years ago from Ohio, USA

      @Insane: Did you look at the HTML for all 106 hubs? How did you get that number?

    • Insane Mundane profile image

      Insane Mundane 4 years ago from Earth

      At the moment, it looks like only 24 out of your 106 Hubs are featured. If they ain't featured, the no-index tag will be slapped on 'em like a 'kick me' sign on your back. What I've noticed over the years when dealing with the "make money online" concept, is that a lot of people that are not making very much money or getting very much traffic, spend loads of time writing articles about making money and getting traffic. Now how senseless and counter-productive is that? The wanna-be SEO Gurus are the worst...

      By the way, there is no certain number of Hubs to have that will automatically enter you into the kingdom of gold. No matter what site you are on, if you hit the right topic at the right time, you may have traffic explosions from time to time, whether it be one article or several ridiculous ones like this Hub. Good luck with your quest for a streaming online income. My platinum mining business is currently under construction; ha!

    • abbykorinnelee profile image

      Abigayle Malchow 4 years ago from Ripon Wisconsin

      I don't publish anything that I think is poor quality. I just was spacing them really far apart because of other obligations in my life, I got a lot more things written and other topics too...just don't know what else I should do. Am I not doing something or adding something to the hub to make them more accessible or something?

    • profile image

      thechronicler 4 years ago

      Solid advice Jessi; thank you for sharing. I think quality is a big deciding factor for HubPages success. What I do is look through my published hubs on a regular basis and determine how I can improve those that aren't getting traffic. Whether it's breaking the text up into smaller sections with headers, adding another relevant image or including a video, curating hubs like this doesn't take that much time. Those I have improved move from idle to featured in a relatively short time.

      As far as quantity, I set small goals. I want to get to 50 hubs by the end of this year, and I'm close--44! It also helps to make lists of possible hub topics as I'm doing other day-to-day things. Some writers use a pen and notebook; I use the notepad on my iPhone so my Hub list is always within reach.

      Tina Truelove 4 years ago

      Thank you for this great information. I followed a few of your links to your other hubs and found helpful information. I have a question though. I previously linked my blog to each of my hubs which brought a lot of traffic to my blog; however, I learned Google had again changed it's algorithm which meant that, at least the way I understood it, my hubs would be ranked lower by Google because I had over 200 links via HubPages to my blog - one link per hub. Can you explain to me how this works and whether or not I should add the links back? I removed them and my Hub score went from 95 to 99 overnight. I don't know what is best.

      Voted up and sharing. Thank you!

    • SkeetyD profile image

      SkeetyD 4 years ago from Barbados

      Quality is certainly more important than quantity. But it isn't just about that either. As you said you need a loyal readership who will read your hubs steadily and share them with their followers and on the process goes. Also, as with all things there is ebb and flow and when the ebb times are on, it can be hard to call yourself a writer, you feel so defeated. All we hubbers can do is persevere and keep connecting with each other.

    • abbykorinnelee profile image

    • CloudExplorer profile image

      Mike Pugh 4 years ago from New York City

      I think quality is highly important when it comes to publishing anything onto the web, and especially at hubpages. You nailed it with this hub, and pointed out various reasons why it really doesn't matter the number of articles one writes, and so thanks for writing the facts as they truly are.

      Some writers online are purely just good writers, and have no idea how a web page should function for their readers, or how one should appear to them to keep them on the page, or for them to even share it socially.

      There's so many hidden elements involved behind the making of a fully optimized hub article, and besides the basic grammar requirements, as well as the new SEO regulations of both Hubpages and Google today.

      So its becoming even much more harder to understand as time goes by, and things on the web continue to evolve and including here on hubpages as they continue to ramp up the requirements of per say the hub hopper, and all.

      So this style hub article you've written for others to think, and to use as a sort of way of acknowledging such facts as to needing to improve quality over quantity is crucial indeed, and thanks for sharing your take on it all for all of us.

      Overall fantastic hub, thumbs up and getting shared for sure Jessi.

      This is very good information that you discussed and I have found that you are absolutely right about the quantity versus quality issue. I have constantly been deleting hubs that are not successful. And I found that this helps improve my other hubs with more traffic. The lower quality hubs seem to pull down the ranking on the better ones.

      Reading your hub is very encouraging as you have confirmed my findings. Voted up.

      Jessi, you undeline the most important fact that regular writing of hubs is a must. Many new hubbers make the mistake of writing too few hubs and then fretting they haven't made a dime. This hub is a great lesson to them that writing regularly is very important and yes quality is very important.

      Some great ideas and suggestions in this hub. Thanks for sharing.

      Voting this up, useful and interesting .

      I don't think all of the top earners are listed. The reason I say that is that I ran across a man with almost 3000 hubs and he said he was earning about $3000 a month here and his name isn't listed. It must be that some people opt out of having their name listed. I agree that it is possible to earn $1 a hub and more. It takes good content and keyword research. Many people earn much more than that. This is a good hub, by the way. I hope it encourages people.

      Hi Jessi10,

      I agree with you, the quality of a hub matters a lot. This is supported by the fact that some hubbers will reach the HP payout faster with less hubs compared to others with more hubs. Voted up.

      I just wanted to say good job with the hub! You gave great info for people that are new to Hubpages as well as those who have been here for a while. It was also good to see people offering suggestions rather than arguing over the best way to be successful.

      My path has been pretty similar to everyone else. I started here just because I like to write. The possibility of making money was an added bonus. In the beginning, I really didn't make anything but still had fun producing things that other people could read. One day I made a random seasonal hub, and my traffic took off. It was cool to see my own work show up in Google results.

      So definitely write for the enjoyment of writing, use SEO if you really want to be found online, and put time and effort into your work. You never know who else might be reading it.

      Great info. There's no one answer to the question of course. One high-quality, high-traffic hub will earn a lot more than 50 poor quality, spammy ones. Something not everyone on Hubpages seems to get :( Thanks for the great hub, though. Voted up and useful.

      I am a total "newbee" in Hubland so I really appreciate the hubs that give good common sense about hubbing. I'm really glad you mentioned the quality over quantity issue because I wondered about that. I'm taking way too long to write, I think, but on the other hand, I'm enjoying it. I think I'll keep on writing!

      First off, let me say that It took me like 10mins just to get down to the submit a comment box. I couldn't stop reading all the great comments from your awesome hub. I'm new here and so far, I love it. Even though I haven't seen any income yet, I know that this will come in time. I'm just very excited to be writing and learning about all the possible ways to express one's self through the ability to write. This was a most informing yet inspirational hub. It's given me hope to continue on with my goals, dreams, and aspirations.

      Thanks so much!

      I agreed with alocsin that backlinking also helps with traffic.

      Great hub! Voted up.

      Hubpages is a good source for some extra money, but it is not so easy to make a living from Hubpages.
