The Comprehensive Walkthrough Guide with Hubpages

Hubpages is an online publishing community similar to the likes of Squidoo, the intend is simple to help you make more money online! Squidoo used to be easy to make money but recently it have become very competitive. Hubpages makeover recently also came with more features and a better revenue ads model opportunity.


What is this Hub that can make me money online?
Even if you are without a blog or website, as a newbie you can still be able to make money from creating a hub. A Hub is a web page which you write and design on. Every Hub is unique and you are able to publish as many as you like over time.

"HubPages currently utilizes advertising from Google Adsense, Commission Junction, Amazon and the beta of eBay’s Contextual Advertising units, with plans to roll out direct sponsorships of hubs in the foreseeable future.

There’s a lot to like about this service. The revenue sharing model is generous compared to others; a straight 50/50 60/40 split compared to Squidoo’s 50% of profits only, and publishers are paid direct by the advertiser: advertisements are rotated 1:1 with each publisher’s code and HubPages’ code. The question of Intellectual Property Rights is straight forward: publishers own the content and can do with it as they please."

Creating your First Hub in 4 simple steps
  1. Create: You’ll need to create an account.
  2. Name: Pick a title for your Hub, url sub category title and add tags that describe your Hub.
  3. Add: Create the content capsules of your choice and fill them with whatever you’d like.
  4. Publish.
The Editor Page
After you finish Step 2 in publishing your first Hub, go to your editor page and this is how it is suppose to look like. Once you are here, take note that i had numbers on the side which i will brieflt describe what they are used for.
hubcapsules edit

  1. This is the main post which allows you to sort out which information you want to project first. Maybe you have a photo which you want to place it on the top of this Hub or you might want to create sub-title so you need more text box placed in the main editor area.

  2. Content capsules. There are only 7 different types of capsules available and you can add them into your main editor area by clicking on the capsule you need.

  3. Revenue Programs. 3 revenue programs to chose from Google Adsense, Ebay Affiliate or Amazon Affiliate. Use them for the appropriate contents, It is not a must to have all 3 on a Hub.

    Edit Tags. After generating a list of tags when you are creating your Hub, you might want to add on more tags so that searching your article is not that hard.

  4. Capsule Reorder. After you have clicked on the capsule that you intend to add on the main editor area, you got to reorder it before it takes effect on the main editor area.
How to enable your Affiliate and Google Adsense ID?

affiliate revenue idYou will need to enable your Google Adsense and Affiliate ID before you can have them monetizing on your Hub. If you do not have an account with Google Adsense, signup for an account, if you intend to use ebay affiliate ID then it requires you to have a Commission Junction account and same goes for affiliates with Amazon, it will be a requirement to have a Associate Program ID.

Signing up for all 3 are simple and will take a few days before the application is approve.

If you want to track your daily visitors and where they are from, then you can apply for Google Analytics, have your unique ID to be activated.

Listening to what others wants and create a Hub
Hub Request Page is a online page which other hubbers are requesting information or advice on a particular topic which they will like to hear from you. If you have expertise in that field, why not create a Hub and answer your fellow hubbers.

Main Benefits that i will get over using Hubpages
I am sure everyone will be excited to join the all new Hubpages when they hear about the benefits they are in for:
  • You can place direct links to your blog or webpages to drive traffic

  • You can increase your chances of improving your Pagerank indirect, the older version of Hubpage jumps pagerank every quarterly so your post is almost sure to have a pagerank after about 10 weeks.

  • You can promote on your products, affiliate products or even your website.

  • Potential to improve your website’s search engine ranking positions.

  • Talk about social media marketing and make them realise the importance of Digg and Stumbles which could generally improve traffic and let this Hub not go un-noticed by asking them to spread around by digging and stumbling the Hub first.

Making sure you dry up Hubpages Resources to Make Money for Yourself
While you might think Google adsense is going to be your biggest money earner in Hubpages, think again because revenue sharing is never accurate and never reliable so i always think of using Amazon to sell items that are related to my contents and also eBay which i can easily make more money on 1 sold item rather than using a contextual ads which can't guarantee me the final amount.

Maddie Rudd's post was a top Hubber with 360 comments and while writing on a Free Webkinz Guide, she also sells product which should be making her a sum of income from both amazon and ebay.

I will also suggest that you integrate your affiliate program together with your Hub. 2 more methods that you can follow to maximize our earnings with Hubpages and produce a more effective income for you.
  1. With Amazon and eBay already integrated into HubPages, you can also do product reviews for a certain software or script which could be specifically useful in your niche. Clickbank is one of the largest digital product marketplace where you can find many sort of products.

  2. Make Money with Images. Drop Thumbnail images on your Hub, best used for celebrities and Autos Hub, this is one way you can make more money using images you have.

For now, Hubpages is still very new and less competitive as compared to Squidoo, so this is the best time to join a publishing community that offers so many revenue sharing models available, who said you need to be a blogger to make money online?

I like hubpages, I have 50 posts there, but it is harder to get money from adsense. I would recommend sticking with your own blog...

For a freelance writer, HubPages sucks. They do not tell you up front that they expect you to do all of the promotion for your pages yourself and that they will take you off of their payroll if you do not meet page hit quotas and other factors not mentioned in the original contract. If you're a freelance writer, stay away!

Hubpages if fine for the average folks trying to make a bit of money, but anyone on a professional level or trying to promote useful info/sites avoid this site. They don't bother to tell you until after your "hub" is created that you've violated this or that. If you post the name of a web site as I did, and the name includes the term dot com, it's considered excessive promotion. I listed two sites, one a crohn's disease help blog and a news portal - non-self serving sites and they were flagged. I have other sites a resources to make a dime online and Hugpages isn't worth the effort. If you are a casual user you'll be fine, but if you wish to provide a services or inform people of web sites, or online resources it isn't apparently for you. Very unprofessional and zero communication. Where the internet has moved to include more and more social networking Hubpages seems to be anti-social networking by its restrictive process.

Sorry, meant to include that YOUR article however is VERY well done. Maybe since you did them such a great service, Hubpages can respond with an official comment on their policies to help people choose if this is for their or not. Setting up my hub only to get "banned" for nothing is 30 to 45 minutes of my life I'll never get back. ;-)

I have trouble when editing my hubpages sometimes hubpages.com detects that the my article don't have enough words, albeit it's the same one, and then i add more words, still it's detected as lack of word...do you have solution for my problem?

i have made many of posts in hubpages but not aware of these things. i was not aware of making money by this ... now i got this idea . thanks for sharing ..


It's a great idea, but a vast amount of the hubbers take themselves wayyy too seriously and are easily offended, the love to lecture those who post view points they don't agree with. If you're trying to push some unsavory thoughts or filthy humor, forget it. And the site does not do a good job of informing it's hubbers of....well... ANYTHING

Well, I would support you there. HubPages not only has helped me increase my earnings, it also gave me the confidence to write.

But I am also disappointed to see a lot of hubbers publishing galleries (i won't name anyone) with pictures i don't prefer to a reputed site like hubpages.

Hubpages is a great site for posting articles. A lot of targeted traffic can be found on there.

Best advice is to choose a niche that you enjoy. For example, if you enjoy fitness, you can write articles about muscle building and then promote fitness products.

Doing this the right way can lead to a great amount of online wealth.

I use hubpages successfully without any problems of 'flagged hubs'

If you are suffering form these, it means you need to improve your writing, cut down on the links, or write a bit more!

I have found that Hubpages Sucks, I have 100 hubs published and I have only made around 1000/USD in the last 4 months.

Granted my earnings have been increasing greatly each month...maybe I will come back in a couple of months and change my tune

The most important aspect of creating your affiliate site boils down to this: search engines love original and unique content rich websites, be it text, images, or videos, and visitors do too. Your goal in building your website should be to over-deliver on content and offer as much as you can. If you take care of this one aspect of building your online business, you'll be amazed how well the SERPs (search engine results pages) will love your website and more than likely will list it at the top of the results pages.
