Please provide me with some tips or hints. Or maybe just explain what I should do to increase my earnings.
Memorize this. I kid you not. Even after 2+ years, I still find worthy stuff.
Write what you know. Write well, write often, use Word. Share a couple hubs a day via Pinterest and wait.
I try and write 1-2 hubs a day and comment and read others hubs.. It is a wonderful job. .. but you have to keep at it.. make sure you use spell check.. very important.. and link your other hubs. and amazon..
Write on some topics that are related to one another. Somewhere in the hubs, link to your other hub. It works. I write a lot about financial topics and people who come to my hub can read other financial topics so hopefully I will get more than one hit per visitor.
I also belong to some non-hubpages forums and i put links to my pages on hubpages on the other foums. That has brought in some sizeable daily traffic.

Thanks so much for your replies here, I appreciate them.
I am a housewife and hardly get time on HP but then I make myself some time here for about 15-20 minutes. It's really hard for me to spend the most of my day here on HP, I would love to do so but I'm busy throughout the day.
Is there anything else I can do to increase my earnings?
If you really want to increase your earnings you'll simply have to make the time. Just wait till later in the day if you have to when things settle down. Time management is part of success, and everyone must be disciplined in it in order to reach their goals.
That means make goals for Hubpages and then break down the time you need to commit to make it happen.
Life will always happen, and we all must make decisions on how best to manage our time to ensure we continue to work toward our goals. That's true with Hubpages as well as anything else.
I'm seeing the common answer in this thread and that is consistency. While that is very true ALWAYS remember to optimize your articles for search traffic. Take the time to do extensive keyword research prior to constructing your hubs. Trust me - the work pays off!
Don't just write about your niche and what you're good at, but write about what people are searching for. Not many feelings are as gratifying as seeing one of your hubs appear on the first page of Google for a particular search term.
As you construct your hubs try your best to make them "sticky." That is, make it interactive to encourage feedback and comments, include polls, and include videos. By making your articles sticky you are turning them into places that readers will want to come and hang out. Keep in mind that the more time viewers spend on your articles the more respect it will get by search engines.
Another thing I find that works exceptionally well is the Hubpages Answers. Ask the questions that people are looking for answers to...and optimize them (your questions) for search traffic. Refrain from asking the opinionated and open ended questions. Save those for the forums. The mission is to make the Answers feature MUCH better than the renowned Yahoo Answers.
I've been involved with internet marketing since 2008 and I have yet to find a passive income generator quite like HP. Ignore the naysayers...you CAN actually earn a residual income on Hubpages. Just remember to remain consistent and optimize.
I agree, Barbara Kay. I signed up in February 2011 and it took almost a year to get a payout. Now I am getting them every month and am up to about $80 each time.
When some of the front page Hubbers have lost the number of views they once had; I would say - do not invest all your time and effort in on-line writing.
Write about the things you know and enjoy but do not expect on-line writing to be a income to live on. Then if you achieve it well done, if you do not, at least you will have enjoyed the journey.
Some great advice here for a new hubber (is that what we're called?) like myself.
Get more followers. Followers are a reliable source of traffic no matter the hub topic.
I was very unsuccessful during my first year and a half on HP. When I started actually making money was when I wrote about a topic I knew a lot about and not a lot of other people could. Don't make a lot on here but a couple of dollars a day. If you really want to get more traffic they key is writing about things that you know a lot about and that people are searching for. The hard part is finding a good topic or having valuable knowledge.
Join forums and place links to your hubs in those forums. Join Redgage as you can link people from there to here.

I know this isn't a suggestion for a new feature, I'm suggesting the removal of one, but this seemed the best category for my post and the most likely location for it to be seen by a staff member.Can we all think back to January of 2011 when Hubpages traffic was decimated by the original Panda...

I used to be totally addicted to HP, couldn't wait to log on everyday to see what was happening, who and what was popping in the forums, what interesting hub made HOTD, and of course, how my stats and earnings were progressing. I looked forward to the rush I got from clicking "publish"...

So I've deleted all of the idled hubs so far and am wondering when I will have none left. I'm not going to edit anymore until I see some sort of improvement in traffic. Too much trouble for no results at all. With all of the scrapers and with HP's brilliant program I'll soon have...

I know that this is the most asked question here, but I'd still really appreciate it if anybody answered.I've been on Hubpages for about 6 months now, and I've just published my 7th Hub, and I'm starting to write a few more. As of right now, I have 239 total views, and each Hub has roughly 36...

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with 58 hubs written. Does anyone else find the CTR quite poor for hubpages, or is...

HP ads are running on my hubs since one week. My earnings through the program are pretty low, may be because of lower traffic I am getting. My hubs were making couple of dollars before signing up with HP ads. Now from past one week my hubs earned nothing from adsesne.I am just thinking whether I...
