Hubpages And How To Make Good Money Writing
So as my first official article, it seems only reasonable, that I start with the first profitable side hustle I ever had. Writing articles on
I had never even thought about writing and yet it came quite naturally and look at me now with my own blog. Who would have thought it?
I had to work at my writing skills and to be honest even to this day I still need to improve but it has been worth it. Going forward and learning how to make money online in 2021, Hubpages is a good place to start.
What Is Hubpages?
So let’s start with what is Hubpages?. Hubpages is a Revenue sharing website whereby the user writes articles based on whatever they like. These articles are then published by the writer and have ads placed onto them automatically by Hubpages. When these ads are clicked on by your readers then Hubpages gives you a share of any revenue generated.
Sounds simple doesn’t it, Well it is and it isn’t. You need to find a decent niche and you also need to write regularly if you are to see any revenue.
There are other writing sites out there such as Ezinearticles but I feel Hubpages is the easiest to start out with.
So why go with Hubpages if you have to share the revenue with them?. Well for a lot of people, they dont want the hassle of setting up a blog or website.
Blogs and websites can take months of hard work to get established and sometimes even longer to make money. Blogs are entirely your own work so if anything goes wrong you either fix it yourself which is sometimes extremely difficult or you pay for outside help.
With Hubpages once you have signed up and have your profile you can get started making money right from the very start.
With Hubpages, all you have to do is set up a free account and within a few minutes, you are writing that article about pet grooming and sharing it with other users.
Pet grooming was just an idea, I would choose whatever niche you know a lot about. You don’t have to be an expert so long as you know more than the average person and you are confident you can write 1500-2000 word hubs with ease.
Other Hubpages Benefits:
There is a great active forum on the site. This has lots of
Having your article on the site means you need not worry too much about the design and style too much. This leaves you time to spend on getting traffic to your article. This is already helped massively as you have the Hubpages name in the address which gives it a boost.
You also have a Hub profile that has a score assigned to it which the higher this score is the better writer Hubpages sees you at and the more likely your articles will get promoted better by Hubpages.
In 2011 all revenue sharing sites were hit hard by a major change in the
Hubpages brought up the last remaining large competitor Squidoo and have since changed the way their site works. They now have lots of multiple sites
So what you are probably wondering is how much money can you make on Hubpages. Well like any question such as that there is no straightforward answer.
Once you get going though and increase your hubber score and improve your writing you will find some of your articles will attract attention and traffic and this is when your earnings will soar.
Before the google (panda) algorithm update some Hubpages users were earning up to £2000 a month. This was a very well established writer with 200 or more really good articles. They would usually have a profile ranking of over 90 as well.
Most of these ranking very high in Google with lots of well-researched keywords. Earning that much now is highly unlikely.
I feel that if you were to sign up and start writing good,
You would need to be very fortunate or have a great deal of SEO knowledge to achieve that with a blog or website in that short period of time.

My Case Study
It took me around 3 months to see any kind of income. I had written about 15 Hubs by that point mainly based around a specific video game I was very
I went on a bit of a writing spree focusing on the niche I had carved out for myself. Within a couple more months I had written at least another 15 articles and this started to show with my earnings.
I started to learn how to link new articles to my older ones to gain more readers. I also learned how to create my own header images and titles. This all helped my articles achieve a better look.
A year or so into my Hubpages journey I had over 100 hubs. Some of my video game articles were ranked on the 1st pages of google for the keywords I had used. This was earning me anywhere between £100-250 a month and was a great passive side hustle.
If your looking to boost your budget quickly, then this probably isn’t the money-making route you want to devote your time too.
If you are thinking about starting a blog but are a little unsure. Especially taking into account whether you have the skills. Perhaps you do not want to spend any money hosting your own blog then perhaps Hubpages is for you.
For me I was just passionate about video games and writing about them was easy and although I wasn’t a natural writer, I had to work at it and I learned as I went. I learned how to improve my writing in order to get a better hubscore which motivated me greatly.
It gives you the chance to write about what you love but has the backing of a big company to help boost your posts. If you enjoy it and do well then it will give you the confidence to strike out on your own and create your own blog or website.
As you can see from the above picture it was some time ago that I was earning on this site. As mentioned before it was my first side hustle.
You can see I made over $60 in 2 weeks. This doesn’t go back before 2011 so it doesn’t show my earnings when my pages were ranked well.
It also doesn’t show eBay earnings. eBay affiliation is enabled on Hubpages too. You can also see my username in the

In summing up, earning a side income from Hubpages is possible, although it can take time and patience but once up and running and when you start earning money it is a great passive income. Passive income is the best form of income and Hubpages made me a great passive income for a while until I started this blog.
