Earn Form Hubpage - Part 01

Earn Money With HubPages


What is HubPages?

HubPages is a website designed around sharing advertising revenue for high-quality, user-generated content. The interface allows members to create individual pages on specific topics. HubPages differs from many other revenue-sharing sites by using the Google AdSense API to manage the revenue split with writers.


The site launched in August 2006 after collecting a $2 million investment from Hummer Winblad. According to Quantcast, HubPages has become one of the 100 most visited US sites on the Internet. In December 2009, it received around 17.6 million visits and over 88 million page views.


HubPages is a user generated content site. Users (known as Hubbers) submit magazine-style articles which are posted as individual webpages (referred to as Hubs). Unlike some other user content sites, Hubbers retain all intellectual property rights to their Hubs, and can delete them at any time.
HubPages earns revenue through Google Adsense ads which appear on Hubs. They can also earn income by opting to include Kontera contextual ads, or by using eBay and Amazon.com advertising capsules. In each case, the Hubber must be a member of the corresponding affiliate program as an individual, because income is paid directly by the affilate company, not by HubPages. The 60:40 revenue split is achieved by alternating the code used in advertisements: the Hubber's code is displayed 60% of the time, and HubPages' code 40%.
HubPages is not a blogging site. A Hub is typically a discrete magazine-style article, longer than a blog post and covering a specific subject in some depth (usually 400 to 1,500 words). A Hub is not continually added to over time like a blog (although Hubbers often "tweak" Hubs to improve their earning capacity or to update information). A Hubber who wished to write several posts about a single subject would be more likely to write separate Hubs and interlink them using the "Group" feature.


There are many other sites, which invite users to write articles in return for a share of the site's revenue.
Of these, the closest business model to HubPages, and its main competitor, is Squidoo. HubPages differs from Squidoo in that it will not allow overly-promotional Hubs (i.e Hubs which are written solely to promote a single product or service), and its "HubScore" system heavily penalises duplicate content (articles that are already published elsewhere on the internet). Some Hubbers find these measures restrictive, but it has prevented the spamming problems experienced at Squidoo, and helped to maintain the quality of the site.

Affiliate programs like PPC(Pay-per-click) like Google adsense, PTR(Paid-to-read) and PTC(paid-to-click) programs have recently gained popularity among people all around the world. Quite recently, online marketing affilliate programs like eBay and Amazon have also gained popularity. All these programs are a good, substantial and source of income.

The uniqueness and benefit in Hubpages is that you can link your Hubpages account directly with the affiliate companies rather applying to each of them separately. Google will automatically display Adsense Ads on your once you create your hubs. Similarly, Kontera will display their Ads once you hub is published. Similarly, you can choose to opt for marketing affiliate programs such as eBay or Amazon. Once you have become a member of Hubpages, you can create as many Hubs as you wish and display all the affiliate functionalies on all your hubs. The more hubs you create, the greater are your earning opportunities. Some featured hubbers even create more than 200 hubs. 

  1. 1. Adsense
You can earn money from your hubs when people click on the adsense ads that are on your hub. The way money is made is Google will pay each publisher (website owner) close to half the revenue generated when the ads are clicked on. That means Google is paying the owner of hubpages money to display the ads on this site.
To help build the hubpages community,  Hubpages will share that revenue with you if you have an adsense account. If you don't have one you can apply for one from Google. It costs nothing and is easy to set up.
After you have set up your adsense account, you can then edit your hubpages account info so that you can get credited for the ad clicks on your hubs.

Adsense Earning Tip

Make sure when you edit your hubs to set your ad settings on high. The more ads you display the more money you can earn.

Research the Traffic You Should/Could Be Getting

Chances are you DO have content that can be improved. So take sometime, look over your articles and find one that has a topic or keyword/keywords with limited competition but still get at least 2,000 searches a month. In case you don't know, you can research that here at http://www.google.com/keywords.

Revamping to Increase Traffic

Now that you've did some better keywords for your articles or pages, follow these suggestions to help better rank your page in google, thus increasing targeted traffic, thus increasing your google adsense revenue!
  1. Change the title of your page to a keyword phrase (or two keyword phrases) that are identical to the keyword that you are competing for traffic from google.
  2. Within the body of your article, look for all the words that relate to your keyword, perhaps 'it' or 'this piece' or 'this item'.
  3. You also shouldn't have any other keywords that rank higher than your targeted keywords in your article. To get your keyword density check out http://www.keyworddensity.com.
Keyword Density is the percentage of occurrence of your keywords to the text in the rest of your webpage. It is important for your main keywords to have the correct keyword density to rank well in Search Engines.
  1. Do you have photos on your page? Save them to your hard drive and rename them to the keyword title with dashes (-) sepearating each word "my-keyword-phrase", then re-upload them. This helps Google know your page is really about my-keyword-phrase.
  2. Make sure to bold your keyword phrase at least once (don't overdo this!)
  3. Also include your keyword phrase in

 Google Adsense Tips - Where to Go From Here

Now that your keyword density and title are hopefully all straightened out, you are now on the path to seeing a jump in your google adsense revenue.
It would also be beneficial at this point for you to build backlinks from other high PR sites that have anchored link text.
Building Quality backlinks is one of the most important factors in Search Engine Optimization.
It is not enough just to have a lot of backlinks, it is the Quality of backlinks along with the Quantity that help you rank better in Search Engines.

A backlink could be considered as a Quality Backlink if
1. The Theme of the backlinking website is the same as your website.
2. It links to your website with the keyword (keyphrase) that you are trying to optimize for.
This tools searches for websites of the theme you specify that contain keyphrases like "Add link", "Add site", "Add URL", "Add URL", "Submit URL", "Add Article" etc. Most of the results could be quality potential backlinks.

The idea behind including backlinks as part of the page rank algorithm is that if a page is good, people will start linking to it. And the more backlinks a page has, the better. But in practice it is not exactly like this. Or at least you cannot always rely on the fact that your contents is good and people will link to you. Yes, if your content is good and relevant you can get a lot of quality backlinks, including from sites with similar topic as yours (and these are the most valuable kind of backlinks, especially if the anchor text contains your keywords) but what you get without efforts could be less than what you need to successfully promote your site. So, you will have to resort to other ways of acquiring quality backlinks as described next.

2. Ebay and Amazon Modules

This works similar to Adsense. You would sign up with ebay and Amazon to promote their products and they will give you a unique id, much like the adsense one. Edit your affiliate settings and you are ready to go.
When you do a hub you can add an ebay capsule to include products related to your hub. For example, for a hub about the new movie Transformers, you can add ebay stuff your visitors may be interested in such as Transformers TShirts and add some dvds and games from Amazon.
