Okay folks, it’s been a while since I’ve posted my last Hubpages Income Report, but here it is. For a while, I wasn’t writing any new content for Hubpages. I have noticed that the more content you write there and the more involved you are on the site (leaving comments, rating other hubs, going to the forums), the more traffic you will tend to get to your Hubs.

Another thing I have noticed is that over time Hubpages articles tend to generate more traffic. There’s always the argument between fresh and evergreen content, but I have to say that a good content strategy involves both. I guess what I’m getting at is with Hubpages, think LONG TERM.
Not that you can’t make money right away on hubpages with relevant and timely articles, but over time you have the potential to generate some very good revenue from what you publish on the site.
My Hubpages income was the best it has ever been last month (you should notice a steady growth over the months). I earned $174 from display advertising and another $43 in eBay affiliate commissions (which is paid out as pay per click). Amazon income was pretty negligible–I’m still trying to figure out how to effectively use Amazon links. I don’t use Kontera for the majority of my hubs–only on a few low-paying ones.
The total earnings were $217. This is pretty much based on Hubs I have published over the past couple of years, as I didn’t do too much work on the site last month.
With Hubpages, you can create a pretty decent residual income stream. Be consistent by writing about similar topics (although it will never hurt you to branch off into a totally random and non-competitive ancillary interest of yours), build links between your Hubs, and think about where you want to place your display advertising and ebay links.
