After writing more than 100 articles on other online programs i mentioned earlier and earning what i earned above. I sat myself down and asked me, what was it that hubpages did to me, that i left so fast without saying at least goodbye.

Easy Way I Made $0.02 Money On Hubpages
On the 23rd November 2011, my web plane landed me once more on hubpages website, this time around i came with my luggage that contains all the information for each and every hub i'm going to create, but first, i needed to familiarize myself with my new online abode. i spent 23rd and 24th of November 2011 on hubpages, getting to know whois and what is.
After equipping myself with at least 40% of useful information, i finally said yes to hubpages, and i registered on the 25th Nov. I wrote my first hub on that faithful night, and earn $0.02 next day. Victory, victory victory!.

I Made $0.30 In Three Days On Hubpages
When i woke up on the 26th Nov. 2011, and saw the $0.02 on my hubpages account, i realized this is a money making potential. I couldn't believe it. I earned $0.32 after three months of joining the other online program i mentioned earlier. So for me to earn $0.02 overnight was a positive shock to me.
On the 26th Nov.2011, i created three more hubs as i read that my one hub was lonely. I earned $0.10 for the three hubs. This means between 25th and 26th Nov i earned $0.12 writing four hubs.
I could only write one hub on the 27th Nov. That earned me $0.04. Adding up to $0.16 in three days. I don't mind what anybody would say, but i'm telling myself that i must be doing something right. Right?
I earned $0.14 on the 28th Nov. writing three hubs, adding up to $0.30 in four days. WOW!
29th Nov. earning = $0.12 writing 2 hubs. Total in five days hubbing is now $0.42 writing a total of 10 hubs.
30th Nov. earning =$0.18 for 2 hubs. Total earnings is now $0.60 writing 12 hubs.
1st December earning = $0.07 for two hubs. I did not use enough keywords to write the articles. Still testing what works and what doesn't. Total earning is now $0.67 for 14 hubs and about 201 page views so far.
2nd Dec = $0.05 for two hubs.
3rd and 4th Dec earning = $0.06 and $0.07 respectively, i did not write any article on these days as i was doing a bit of testing what is working. This is what i found out: after writing and publishing my hubs, i need to update my hubs individually. I found out that after a day or two of publication, my hubs became very quiet, i mean there was no visitors. So i decided to update all the 15 hubs and within an hour i had 17 new online visitors visiting my hubs.

What I Plan To Do To Earn Extra Money On Hubpages
I plan to write as many articles (hubs) as possible. What i've done so far is researching any article topic before writing.
These are the steps i use to increase my page views:
- I submitted my sub domain to google webmaster tools, that is, google sitemap, this makes all my pages to be indexed and visible on the web when visitors search for keywords on my web content.
- Check keywords for that topic. From the list of keywords, i will select the topic based on that keyword.
- I write unique, useful and update older contents
- Googled the keywords to see how others are searching for it.
- Organize the points based on the keywords, say about 7 to 8 points for the sub titles.
- Then write the article, i always include Amazon or eBay Capsule or both
- I have registered with some forums related to some of the topics i write about
- I use google analytics to monitor what visitors are doing on my sites. I noticed that i have about 3,151websites that are linking to my site.
- Most of my hubs traffic are from the USA as google.com accounts for more than 80% of my online visitors.
