Earn Lots of Money with Hubs - Why?
So many of the hubs I am reading these days are all about driving traffic, backlinks, how to earn more money and how to tap into the best keywords available. Read them over and over, see if any of them offer anything new, and hope that what they offer as a tip can really help. Some of the hubs I read are genuine efforts at showing us something we might not already have known. Others are there to give us pause for thought, to compel us to think about something that may not ever have occurred to us. Really, why are people writing and looking for hubs to get them ahead in terms of revenue?
Many of us are likely feeling more and more stretched. The ever rising cost of living is grinding away at our dwindling income. Our regular jobs are insufficient at meeting all of the needs and wants we have. We have debt we need to conquer and the income we have is insufficient to make a dent. I am sure there are a myriad number of other reasons why we are trying to earn money with hubs.
Why are we all getting constricted in this way? I would like to posit one likely reason. Have you heard of Peak Oil?
Peak Oil in a nutshell is when the total amount of available oil used up until now is equal to the total amount of available oil that is left in the ground. I'm not going to get into too much detail about peak oil except to say that the inelastic nature of the world's production of this fossil fuel has and will cause ever deeper recessions that put more of us out of work, that increase the prices of food, hard goods, soft goods, transportation, electricity, heating oil and more or less everything that you can think of except for what you grow at your own home without using any industrial agricultural additives. As the price of oil continues to rise, fewer people will be able to afford the things that are made with or transported by oil. As we can't affort them anymore we start to look for new revenue streams, and then here we are, writing hubs that try to convince others that this is how you can increase traffic, all in the hopes of increasing traffic.
There is a hopelessness associated with the societal changes that many believe are pending. One way to keep our hope up is to make sure that we form close unions with the people around us and form resilient communities. The more we can support each other locally, the better off we will be in facing the coming changes. Yes, it would be nice to be earning more revenue through our writing like here at hubpages, but a more important focus is on building resilience in your household, in your neighbourhood and in your community.
