Jack is a volunteer at the CCNY Archives. Before retiring, he worked at IBM for over 28 years. His articles have over 100,000 views.

Introduction

I have been writing and publishing on HubPages for about 10 years. Over that time period, I have written over 700 featured articles with a combined views of close to 100,000. Many of my articles have achieved the top search ranking on Google search. This is a tremendous success story and I attribute that success to the HubPlages platform.

Summary

I will be adding to this list in the coming years. As you can see, I write about a variety of topics. I have little control over their placement in searches. It is general perception that keywords in the title and links affect the ranking and SEO is a field that is written about. My personal experience is that it may have some effect but it is not clear to what extent. Some articles will get higher or lower ranking based on a slew of metrics that Google algorithms looks at. They also modify or tinker with these algorithms regularly. It is a trade secret and no one knows exactly how it works.

I am happy with my results and it is mainly attributed to being on the HubPages platform.

      Congratulations, Jack! You deserve the reward of success, as it appears you are writing a little over an article a week. Good job!

      That was the impression I had. It's more of a hobby than a reliable earning stream. I am always a little concerned when I read the profiles of new hubbers, who talk about writing on HP as a career.

      Nice work Jack. I have also been here 10 years. I don't worry much about SEO or what page my articles appear on Google as long as my views and earnings keep rising (which they are) I am happy. Great to see you donate your earnings to a worthy cause.

      liz, I don't do it for the money. I typically make about $8 per month and I donate all proceeds to my alma mater's fencing program. I self publish because I like to write and share my knowledge and opinion with others.

      This is interesting. Would you say that the financial gain you have made from HubPages is just reward for your efforts?
