Hubpages for Making Money Online

November 3rd, 2010

Hubpages seems to keep climbing higher and higher.  This really speaks to the management of the website and in no small part to the amazing content writers on Hubpages.com.

If you are looking for another way to make money online, you should have a look at Hubpages.  But you should know that if you want to be successful with your pages there and actually make some money (who doesn’t) you are going to have to write a lot of good to high quality content.

And if you want to do really good, then you are going to want to do extensive keyword research.  This will help you find subjects (and the appropriate corresponding keywords and terms) that you can write about with less competition or at least with a more informed understanding of how many other sites have similar content.

One absolute key thing to do (and perhaps this is most important) is to see if other people are already writing about a given subject on hubpages.  If they are, it may be smarter for you to write about something else.  Or, maybe you want to tag along and think about the residual traffic that may come to your content as a result of being somewhat linked (by tags) to the similar content on the site.

One thing is for sure and that is that there are quite a few people (maybe about 100 or so) who are making very good money from Hubpages.  There are probably 10 who are making exceptional money.  You can be in one of these groups if you want to.

What Should I Write About on Hubpages?

July 21st, 2010

If you don’t already know, Hubpages is a website where you can write articles or “hubs” and earn from any advertising revenue that comes from people visiting your pages.  If you haven’t already, you can sign up here.

You make money on Hubpages from display advertising, ebay affiliate links, and Amazon affiliate links.  You get revenue 60% of the time and Hubpages gets to keep the revenue earned on the other 40% of impressions to your pages.  A lot of people are doing very well and make a lot of money on Hubpages.  It’s definitely not easy, however.  It takes work.

What Subjects Should You Write About on Hubpages?

If you’re wondering what kind of stuff you should write about on Hubpages, you should know that you can write about pretty much anything you want to.  One of the keys to making money at Hubpages is to get a lot of traffic.  This is the key to Internet marketing success, which in a way, is what you’re doing with Hubpages.  It’s content marketing, which means your articles on the site have the potential to make you money when people visit them.  This is what we want.

So keeping that in mind, one of the best things you can do is try to keep your Hubs as original as possible–and especially the title.  Before you publish your article or even earlier on in  the planning stages you should make sure there are no other hubs with a very similar title or even very close subject matter, because it will be harder for you to compete with that page.

Let’s put it this way:  Google isn’t going to put two articles about “Best Dog Parks in Los Angeles” on the front page search results.  So, even if you have an article very close in nature to someone elses, you should tweak your title and the keywords you use throughout the hub to target a slightly different thing.  This is called finding a niche.  I like to call it “niching down” because you are attempting to get deeper into a niche to create original content that doesn’t have much competition.

You should also write about things you know about since this is what you will be able the write the best about.  Right?

Two of the most important things to writing content online (and marketing it) are authority and keywords.  “Authority” means you have something of value to say and “keywords” means you know how to target the right people who will find your article useful by using the proper search terms.

To be continued.  I will be writing about this topic a lot more over the next two weeks.  Subscribe right now so you don’t miss out on any of this.  I’m going to be giving away some Hubpages secrets.

Get More Hubpages Traffic using Article Directories

July 14th, 2010

If you’re looking for a sure-fire traffic generation tip for your Hubpages articles, one way to go is with article directories like ezinearticles.com or articlesbase.com.

If you haven’t already, sign up at Hubpages.com

These sites are well-respected by Google and other search engines because they are moderated by human beings (which means that all articles must adhere to the quality standards of the site), they have been around for a long time, and they churn out hundreds of pages of new content every single day consistently.

You can utilize the power of these large article directory websites to get more traffic to your Hubs on Hubpages.  And if you’re trying to make money on Hubpages or any other site for that matter, then you know that traffic is the name of the game.  The more traffic you get to your Hubpages, the more money you will make.

Traffic is the name of the game, but targeted traffic is golden.  Targeted traffic means that you have a hub about a topic like “free ebooks for the Amazon kindle” and you get a visitor who owns a kindle and is currently looking for ebooks to read without paying for them.  That’s targeted traffic and you can see why it’s a beautiful situation when things work out like that.

The visitor has a problem (or question) and you have a solution (or answer).  It’s a perfect match.

Article directories will help you gain targeted traffic to your hubs because you get to include two links in the footer at the end of the published article.  When people finish reading the article, they may click one of the links,which makes it pretty clear that they are interested in what you have to offer in you Hub.  In addition Article Directories give you extra backlinks, which will help your rankings in the search engine results pages over time.

Try article directories.  They work for any kind of content promotion.  They work long term too, which is a great thing to know.  Over time, these articles will gain more authority, traffic, and higher rankings (or at least they should–and this is why you should always focus on quality articles) and will over time create more opportunities for your business.

Hubpages Income Report: June 2010

July 6th, 2010

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.

If you haven’t yet, sign up at Hubpages.com

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.
