Since I’ve written several posts about how to make money with Hubpages, I figured I would give you a look at my Hubpages earnings just to let you know that it really is possible to make money writing good content at the site.
Read my post on how to make money with Hubpages.
First of all, Hubpages is a site where you can sign up for an account, write content, and earn money from Adsense ads that are displayed when you publish your work. You get to keep 60 percent of the revenue while Hubpages, quite fairly, gets to keep 40 percent. The exposure and traffic you will get just by publishing on the site is well-worth the site’s cut of profits.
My Hubpages Earnings for August were $76.30.
I have about 30 Hubs that get most of my traffic and, admittedly, some of them are based on low paying keywords. I know these earnings could have been higher if I had a stronger focus on higher cost per click terms. But some of the lower paying niche I write about are fun and I like them, so I’m not going to stop. There are some simple ways to earn more money with your Hubs, which I write about in a few of my articles here.
These earnings required no outside promotion or any link-building other than linking from similar Hubs, which is something you want to do when you can. See the above link for more details about back-links.
What I want you to take out of this earnings statement is that you can earn money on Hubpages too. The great part is I have already written these hubs and, in terms of search, they will only do better. Older content earns more traffic over time. These hubs are like pieces of online real estate that will earn money every single month.
So, as I add more hubs, my income will only increase. And if I pay attention to higher earning keywords and niches, I will earn more money as well. One lesson I’ve learned is that it can be a little disheartening when you see how low some hubs pay because it’s all related to products and advertisers in your given niche. But that doesn’t mean I’m going to stop writing about these subjects because, frankly, it’s not all about money–at least, not all the time.
The second thing I want you to get out of this Hubpages income report is that your hubs will be indexed more quickly by Google and other search engines, you will gain higher pagerank faster, and will earn more traffic in a shorter amount of time than you would starting a brand new blog.
I’m not trying to discourage you from starting your own money-making blog, I just want to relate that you can harness the power and authority of a well-respected site to make money online while also promoting yourself and your own website. I will post one of these income reports every month, so stay tuned.

Quick Hubpages Tips:
Do some keyword research and write a good, descriptive title. This will help you gain more traffic.
When you can, link from one related Hub to another related Hub. This not only helps your reader find the information they’re looking for, it also helps you create more traffic, and thus, more opportunity to make money from Hubpages.
