Earning Personal Income on Virtual Writing through HubPages

Updated on July 5, 2011

How I live with HubPages these days

Looking for a job, these days, is quite difficult because of some obvious reasons, that:

  1. there are job candidates who are better than you;
  2. some companies are looking for total package, as in multi-tasking expert;
  3. the position has been taken already;
  4. you're already late for the interview, and
  5. there is no more vacancy.

Sad to say, the last refuge of a job seeker is to look for available online. There are lots of opportunities.This hubber only have to take side on productive and real sites not the scam ones.

His personal experience online have been a bumpy road for trying to make it big. He tried some suspicious sites, but he realized that the only way to survive online is to choose the legit sites that can give him a sensible income.

Slowly but surely, he painstakingly survived the rigors of writing articles online. An accidental discovery on HubPages paved the way to make a difference and earn his place on this virtual writing community.

What to do...and more!

There are lots of opportunities to be cultivated  on HubPages. A lot of hubbers will suggest the ways to be successful here. Some of my fellow hubbers' advices are visible at the right side of this hub (for related hubs and topics). So, if you feel this hub is still incomplete, you can refer to the hubs that interest you.

So start earning by:

  1. signing up on Hubpages. There'se an old saying that, "A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step." After signing up and compose your profile, you can post your initial hub. I momentarily forgotten what's my very first hub (call it memory gap). Yet, you can go back and remember it by looking on your account as the list of your hubs will tell you your first published hub based on the date specified.
  2. writing quality hubs.You'll easily get noticed in Hubpages if you'll write a quality hub one at a time. More than 4, 000 words is not enough. It's just a start to develop your topic in original manner. You'll always take note of your grammar, in English language, punctuations and other aspects of hub writing. More often than not, I cling to blog-type of writing (as in diary). Hub is much more informative and can last for a long time. In other words, it should transcend time, say for a decade. The best option on Hubpages is to edit your hub regularly.
  3. signing up on Google AdSense. It's either you will be declined the first time you applied or be accepted based on the quality of your hubs. HubPages is encouraging hubbers to make text-enrich and original hubs, so that, Google AdSense will accept your hubs without second thoughts of being denied. This electronic Click-Per-Minute (eCPM) scheme will depend on the quality of your hubs to earn corresponding monetization. Let's say for every 1 Click, I received 108 + Page Impressions, it will be converted to corresponding amount on eCPM for 2 cents or more.
  4. linking your hubs to eBay and Amazon. Two real online stores are helping HubPages to give hubbers other sources of income aside from the Hubpages Ad Program and the Google AdSense. You can still earn commission from referrals at the said online stores. By the way, you must also sign-up on the two sites in order to activate your account on HubPages.
  5. by sharing it at your Facebook and Twitter account. Online self-promotion is a must to be noticed by online users and fellow hubbers. There's an official Hubpages account on Facebook and Twitter where you can share your hubs. Once you publish your hub, there's two icons that are waiting to be clicked, Facebook and Twitter. If you like a hub by other fellow hubber, it will surface on the list of your Facebook activities for the day.

Harvesting Success on Hubpages

HubPages is a very good site to publish your hubs. Almost all have found successes by just writing on this site.

  1. One hubber completed and published a book because of this site.
  2. Another hubber was hired by a big movie outfit in order to right the screenplay of his hub. Am I getting it correct.
  3. Elite hubbers are hired by HubPages to execute special tasks, like the Hub Nuggets, HubMob and other programs that will surely interest you.

Like I said, this site opened a great opportunity for me in order to earn passive income while helping others to have a positive view about many subjects.

There are censorship here. But of course; writing is not an absolute subject. We should know our limitations when tackling sensitive issues here.

As one of the famous Shakespearean passages, "All the world's a stage," each hubber can showcase his/her intellectual prowess by sharing it here on HubPages.

      @Zubair Ahmed: Hi, too, mate! Promotion is a must, that's why staff opened a Facebook account on HubPages and Twitter, too. Generating traffic will be easy if you participate on the Forum, and Questions and HubMob (now Weekly Inspiration) or even answering official Blog of the site. You can link your hubs on Facebook and Twitter by sharing and tweeting it!

      As for me, I invited my Facebook friends and Twitter followers to try hubbing, I mean writing on HubPages.

      Aside from that, writing text-enriched hubs will surely gain readers as it will surface on featured topics and hubs once you open you HP account.

      You can also open a blogspot, say blogger for free promotion of backlinks. You can also tell your readers there about your activities on HubPages.

      Good luck!!!

      @Romano Arnesto: I hope they would. The difficulties to start on HP is not what you think, as long as you will follow canned instructions, never deviating on it in order to avoid violations.

      Hi mate, Nice hub thank you for sharing this information.

      I think the difficult part once you have overcome the initial procrastination period is generating traffic. Any good tips on that?

      @myi4u: With perseverance and dedication, you'll get through on HubPages. Following instruction is a must here in order to earn monthly. with or without comments, text-rich hubs will also earn through the Impression of Google AdSense.

      @earthbound1974: Maybe, you just clicked some features of your hub that is prohibited by Google AdSense. I was also alarmed by Google because of that. Well, there's still Hubpages Ad Program, so don't be sad. You'll just have to activate your PayPal account and fill-in your Tax Declaration. Me? I still have to activate my PayPal account, too to receive monetization from HP. Good luck to us,all hubbers!

      It's so useful to see a hub inspiring others to write here on HubPages. They say that writing can never brought enough food on the table. Well, if you are equipped with the expertise to play with English words in a nice way, then you'll earn more here at HP!

      Nice hub! Sometimes I just think that luck plays its role in whatever we do. Not many hubbers really earn from hubpages. I have seen a lot of quality hubs with fewer comments and visits compared to some lower quality hubs.

      I've been declined by Google AdSense for reasons I didn't understand and didn't committed. Sighs. Will I ever earn a [passive income here on HubPages?
