Monetary Benefits to Investing Your Writing and Time into Hubpages

Updated on July 7, 2011

Can you really make money on Hubpages?

The idea of actually making money by typing on your computer at home is still kind of a far out idea to me and many others. The thing is, with Google AdSense and other affiliates like Amazon it actually is possible. Granted, it is a often slower, and passive income in the beginning, but you can search for yourself to see some real success stories where it absolutely pays off to sign up on Hubpages and share your thoughts, views and concerns with the world.

I have to admit, that I was a bit skeptical at first, but the joy of what Hubpages has brought to me personally is really amazing. There are many neat people here that are very talented at writing! Many have made friends and many have made quite a bit of money. There is a true network going on here, and I have been more and more impressed the longer I am active on Hubpages.

What is Unique about Hubpages compared to other blogging sites?

There is no shortage of places on the world wide net where you can type out a blog on just about any topic you would like. So what makes Hubpages unique in that I have chosen it to be my main place to "blog" or "write hubs?" Well, as a person that has paid attention to the other sites available, from social sites and blogging sites to networking sites, I find Hubpages to be refreshing and "on top of their game". They have a great team in my opinion that makes Hubpages run smoothly and be professional and helpful to its users as well as itself. I see many ways in which it promotes the hubbers as well as newly written hubs, and even the older hubs. They seem to be looking for ways to keep the site interesting and fun for everyone.

They have maximized how people having questions for instance, get their questions answered but also inspire others to create new hubs from those questions. If you are stuck for an idea to write about, you can find new things to write about all the time. There are many categories to search as well as questions and hub hopping for instance.

The forums and discussions are always busy, and showcase the most recently active discussions. You can meet very cool people from all over the globe, and participate in many fun contests where the opportunity to make even more money is available to you. Personally, I find Hubpages to be a very enriching experience overall and I am so happy that someone shared it with me.

Writing Hubs, and automatic Adsense Ads appear

Once you are signed up with Adsense through Google, and you write a hub, that is all you have to do for relevant adds to appear on your hub. The short of it is that people will likely click the adds on your hubpage because the topic of your hub already brought them there, so they will be interested in those things. Advertisers have invested with Google because they know there are people world over that are doing searches on just about everything. Its a good investment to them because they get the advertisement on a medium like the computer, that is directed right toward the people they are trying to reach with their adds in the first place. To someone wanting to research the best ways to invest their money, people that are in that business can link up with those that are interested and well, you get the idea.

Its a win-win for everyone involved, and this is what I think I love most about hubpages besides the sheer content and joy of having a cool place to research the things I want to learn about or discuss in life. That you get advertisement clicks for this, and earn money that you can track the daily progress of, is just an amazing concept. So thank you to Hubpages and to all the people here that make it a wonderful site for all. Thank you to the people that submit the content, and to the advertisers that invest so people all over the world can find what they are looking for when they need it most.

Thank you to all that make Hubpages a great place to be. :)
