In doing research for how to promote your website, blog, or online business, most people will be exposed to the idea of building backlinks. It’s a very basic idea and in many ways is the foundation of a successful website.
Each backlink is like a vote of confidence, guiding others to your site. It’s always nice to get a back link. Hubpages is one of these places that people often try to create backlinks from to their own websites.
While it’s a totally legit thing to do–the Hubpages staff will alert you if you’re doing it in a cheesy way–and may help you get more exposure to your site, Hubpages is also a good place to make money. Period. In other words, don’t look at the site as only a place to just throw in a few anchor text links, because it has a lot more than that to offer. You can make some decent money on Hubpages.
If you are a member of the eBay associates program, you can earn money with well-chosen and well-placed links and, of course, you can earn from the display ads on your work. I have been reading more and more about people who are basically building sales pages on the site, and targeting very niched-down search terms. Good research and copywriting skills, paired with Hubpages’ ingrained ability to rank highly for thousands of terms, can push one of these pages to the first page of Google.
What I’m trying to impart is that you can make money on Hubpages–the site can be an end all be all, as well as a great place for a few links to your other sites. Hubpages can be a larger part of your overall internet marketing, content creation strategy. It’s a very good site and there are a lot of great people writing there and working there.
