Write, Write and Write Some More

I have been writing hubs for a couple of years now and I love the joy of being able to write and share my work with Hubpage's wonderful community. It has really boosted my confidence and played a big part in helping me substantially improve my writing skills . Each hub I have had the privilege of publishing has been such an amazing learning experience for me.

Now if you don't like writing then I suggest you try something different, this will definitely not be your niche. Because in order to see the money start rolling in on your hubs, you have to be willing to put in a good amount of time and effort. Nobody is going to write the words or take the pictures for you. I usually spend around two to three hours doing research for my hubs, and another hour or so writing them. Like anything else that is worth doing, writing takes hard work and tons of practice to get better at.

Another thing to remember when writing your hubs is that traffic is very important. The more views you receive on your articles, the more revenue you are likely to earn. In order for you to draw more views toward your articles on Hubpages you need to produce high-quality hubs. Ones about popular topics, or something that you have knowledge about seem to work better for me. So put on your Sherlock Holmes glasses and do some research to find a hot topic to write about. Just make sure that your articles has something special that makes it different from the countless other articles.


How to Earn Money on Your Hubs

There are different ad programs on Hubpages that you can join and start making money through. Which is something different I have noticed that makes this site so much more appealing than other sites which usually offer only one. All you have to do is go to your hub-pages earning page and signup for all the ad programs. It is that simple and before you know it you will on your way to reaching a decent monthly pay-out. That is of course based entirely on how much of an effort you are willing to put into making high quality articles.

The programs you can us to earn money with on Hubpages, are Google Ad sense, Amazon, and the Hubpages Ad program. These are all user friendly sites, that offer great advice on how to boost your earnings and increase your traffic. You just have to be willing to take the extra time to do some research about how to increase your revenue and take in the advice they are offering.

You make money through ad programs by others clicking on your ads placed within your hubs. So the more people you can bring to your hubs the better chances you have for getting clicks and making money. A very important warning is "Don't click on your own ads" this is a definite no-no. It doesn't do you any favors and can potentially get your account deleted.


Don't Expect Overnight Success

Please don't expect to get rich overnight, especially if you haven't written but a few hubs. Most people who write for Hubpages do it because they love to write. This is not only true about Hubpages but other writing sites as well. It takes so much hard work and determination, followed by a whole lot of reading and learning along the way. If you want to make money being a writer, you need to treat it like a job and put in some time and devotion. The hub team at Hubpages is always there if you need any help on improving your hubs, they will even give you some words of encouragement.

So if you have pretty decent writing skills, along with a large chunk of patience and you love to write. Sign-up for Hubpages it is a great platform where you can share a few words, give some advice, and chat with some pretty amazing people. They even have an apprenticeship program you can join that will teach you all the secrets you need to know to help improve your earnings with Hubpages.

I am so glad I decided to stick with hub-pages, they have helped me brush up on my writing skills so much and the other writers on this site are always so nice and willing to offer advice and help whenever I need it. I think the main thing I have learned since writing for hub-pages is all good things really do come in due time, so just be patience and keep writing.

Good hub for newbies. I think it takes a lot of time and patience to make very much money on here, but it is a great place to network and practice one's writing skills. Plus, it makes for a great portfolio!

Thank you teaches12345, for your comment and I agree with you, I love writing for hubpages too.

Dianna Mendez on December 08, 2013:

Good information and tips on writing on Hubpages. Your advice is right on and will help many to understand it takes time and patience to build writing skills. I love the community best and not so much concerned with the earnings at this point.

Sunil Kumar Kunnoth from Calicut (Kozhikode, South India) on December 06, 2013:

Goods tips, very informative and useful. My advice to those who are sorry on not earning much, please be patient. My case is best example, after a long wait for 1 year to get my adsense account approved, now I get around $ 20 per month. Patience pays and work well. All will succeed. If you are still doubtful, please read some of mu hubs exclusively related to HP. Dear, thank you for sharing this nice hub.

Depending on what you think "making money" really is. Anything under $100 per month is not considered making any money. Here, you can barely cross the $5/mo.

So to response to your posts, I would say you cannot make money by writing hubs. However, you can implement Amazon affiliate links and see a small improvement.

I use HubPages to get visitors to my review site, not to make money on here.

Thank you for your comment MG, I am so sorry, hub views go up and down for all kinds of reasons. Some days my hubs get a lot of views and some days they don't. I have not made a lot of money writing hubs but I sure have met a lot of wonderful people here. Hopefully you guys will start seeing more views to your hubs soon.

I don't know what to say. I have over 200 featured hubs earnings rarely go beyond $ 4 a month. I have now lost interest in earnings

Thank you for commenting Aupadhyay, Happy Holidays to you too.


Dear prettynutjob30, at least for me, its all are only sayings. I have spent four years on hub pages. I have all my 220 featured hubs. But the total earning on it, is only $1.19. I have affiliated my twitter, facebook, linkedin, pixabay, google+ accounts. I have affiliated all the ad programs on earning page of my HP profile. I now, only enjoying writing on HP. The ambition of earning on HP has totally been vanished from my mind. Overall, Happy Christmas, and wishing you a very prosperous new year.
