How to Make Money Online With HubPages

Updated on February 1, 2018
Sue Adams profile image

I have been using computers since 1984. HubPages helps me keep up with Internet evolution, be widely heard and make my work lucrative.

No AdSense Yet

The best place on the Internet to make money with Google AdSense is right here on HubPages. Anyone with a decent mastery of the English language and something worthwhile to say can write their heart out and get paid for it. But it won't happen straight away. Forget applying for AdSense until you have written at least 10 articles. Before you even write your first one, you need to know how to choose a title and keywords that will be googled to catch the most attention.

Had I Just Known

I would have made money online much sooner had I known what I know now. What with having to be author, proofreader, editor, publisher, promoter, PR, distributor, critic, salesperson and a compassionate member of the fast-growing Hubbing community all at once, no wonder so many of us have become almost enslaved to HubPages. The beauty of it all is that everything I have learned about making money online, I have learned from more experienced friendly, helpful writers who are always here, patient and willing to share their superior knowledge. Now it is my turn to share my unique experience so all of you new Hublings won’t take as long as I did cashing in your first payment.

Title, URL and Keywords

OK, so you have an idea for a new Hub. Don’t even think about writing it yet. Before even beginning to draft your new hub, you need to find a title that will have a chance of ranking high in Google. This may be achieved by your choice of key words. The title is a key word phrase which is likely to be Googled by a person who is interested in your topic.

Finding a Long Tail Title

Find a good title and an equivalent URL (without the capital letters) that contains the same main keywords or keyword phrase for what you want to write about. You cannot change the URL of a Hub. You can change its title, but then the keywords won’t work as effectively as when they are the same as the words in the URL. For example, when I wrote my Hub “Hanging Upside Down” I didn’t yet know about Long-Tail Titles, so the URL is:
Much later, when I had learned about the benefits of Long-Tail Titles I changed the Title to:
Hanging Upside Down - Hang to Stretch and Tone up with Gravity Inversion.

Notice which words are in Caps in the title. Do NOT capitalize every word in your title.

I could not change the URL but by turning the title into a Long-Tail Title, I increased the chance of this Hub being searched for by more key phrases than just “Hanging Upside Down”. Valuable additional keywords which also frequently appear in the content added much-needed search juice.

  • “Stretch”
  • “Hang to Stretch”
  • “Stretch And Tone”
  • “Tone”
  • “Tone Up”
  • “Gravity Inversion”

So when you are looking for a good title, try to imagine what people would type into Google Search to find your Hub. Then go check the competition through Adwords keyword tool or with Market Samurai.

The Art of SEO (Theory in Practice)
The Art of SEO (Theory in Practice)

Four acknowledged experts in search engine optimization share guidelines and innovative techniques that will help you plan and execute a comprehensive SEO strategy. This second edition brings you up to date on recent changes in search engine behavior—such as new ranking methods involving user engagement and social media—with an array of effective tactics, from basic to advanced.


Keyword Academy

You can also do a Google search on how your potential title would rank by using the Free SEO Ad-on tool which is all explained in the excellent free video course here at the Keyword Academy. You can sign up for the trial version for $1 for one month. For me, that was enough to get me going. I then canceled the full payment before the month was up so it only cost me $1 for a LOT of essential knowledge on how to get good ranking titles and keywords.

  1. Keyword Academy teaches you how to amend the title and URL according to your final choice of keywords and keyword phrases and check page ranking again until you’re sure your title has a good chance of ranking on the first page and contains valuable, yet not too saturated keywords. When happy with this. . .
  2. Use that keyword phrase as your URL as well as your Title. Also include the keyword phrases in the Description, the Conclusion and insert related keywords naturally scattered throughout the Hub without keyword stuffing.

Drafting the Hub in Word

For me, publishing a new Hub should take place in one single online session as I don’t believe it does my Hubscore much good to store unpublished hubs in my account. That is why I think it’s a good idea to draft most of the contents for a new Hub at my leisure offline in Word. Then the headed paragraphs are all ready to turn into text capsules, correctly spelt and nicely set out. But I am not publishing yet. First I have to collect and edit the visuals.

Images, Photos and Videos

Collect all the images/photos, edit them for size and layout format if necessary with Photoshop. If you cannot afford Photoshop, use a free program called, which is easy to use and perfectly adequate. Save them with a name that also contains some variation of the main keyword phrase. Most images end up in the Google Images pot. When those are clicked, relevant names can serve as backlinks to your Hub. Always have good, catching, images and videos that people would want to share on FB, and tweet, pin on Pinterest or favor on Youtube. You see, the whole idea is to appear on as many other sites as possible for back-links. Now a network can begin to grow from your well-optimized page.


Find the URL links to videos needed from YouTube and type them into the draft text where they belong in the Hub, so you’ll know where to insert which video capsule when it comes to publishing. (Always give credit where credit due.)


When all the text, pictures, links, and references to videos are ready offline in the Word document, copy and paste the entire page into notepad to get rid of any unwanted hidden codes that the Word program contains. Now it’s just a question of copying and pasting every paragraph from notepad into a Hub text capsule, alternating these with an image (photo capsule) or a video and other capsules (Amazon, poll, quiz, map, table) where required. Remember that all the links have to be inserted.

Presentation and Lay-Out

By breaking your text into multiple text capsules, you will be able to insert additional capsules throughout your article, which will result in a more even and attractive presentation. Use a minimum of three relevant, high-resolution, properly-attributed full width photos (ideally your own). What size? I always use photos or images that are no less than 600 pixels wide. Use at least one video plus a poll, quiz, map or table capsule where appropriate in your article. My favorite is the poll capsule as it gives me the most feedback.

Finishing Touches

Write the summary (in editing mode, just under the title) so that it is immediately clear what the Hub is about, and check that the summary contains your main keywords from your title. Then go to your "groups" via "your statistics/groups" and put the new Hub title into its appropriate group category so that it will be seen as "previous" or "next" under its brothers in the same group. But more on groups later.


Add one or two relevant Amazon capsules. I like to have the ads full width to comply with mobile design. Also remember we have to write a description for every Amazon item as per the new rules.

Ready To Publish

That’s it, press the Publish button. If your Hubs contains well written, interesting, original content, and you followed the guidelines here on How To Make Money With HubPages And Google AdSense, you will succeed on HubPages all in good time.


SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

Right, now you have published your new Hub. But the poor little baby needs further TLC. If you want your new Hub to survive, to grow big and strong, to get good traffic and prosper in AdSense, you have to spread the word about it. I had written 15 Hubs before I realised I wasn’t getting the traffic I needed to make money online. So for a whole week, I stopped writing new Hubs and devoted my time exclusively to learning how to promote and tweak my existing keywords and content for higher rankings and more traffic. I figured it takes less time to tweak fifteen Hubs for improved ranking and traffic than it would take to amend 50 or more Hubs right?

What Do YOU Think?

Consider that long tail tittles, keywords, appearance, content, promotion, back-links, and great patience and devotion are needed to make money on HubPages with Google and AdSense, the HubPages Ad program and Amazon.

With all the help offered by co-hubbers here at HubPages, it doesn't take long to learn the ropes. I hope that this Hub has helped you a little further along your way towards success.

      Hi kitkat1141,

      Yes, longtail titles to maximise keywords is a good idea. However, if titles are too long, they will be cut off when appearing in Google searches. To make sure your entire title fits in the Google search results, you can check the length of your titles for free on this website.

      Great hub. I also don't make much from EBay. I have recently been earning from Amazon about once per week. I make payout every other month, but am hoping to reach every month. I think I have to learn more about long tail keywords.

      Adsense and its policies make it hard to earn a substantial amount until you have invested your time considerably building backlinks and until you have made an SEO and adsense optimized site. Content is the king but still it cant rule alone these days..

      Sue, I've been here on HP for over four years and this is the best hub that I have read on how to be successful here. You have laid out in a very easy to understand way just what it takes to give our hubs the best chance to be successful and draw traffic. Every new hubber should read this before they start publishing here. Great job.

      Thanks for sharing your tips, Sue. I'm still new to HP and learning the ropes in HP. I've been making money alone with Adsense. But I want to expand with Amazon, (separate from my AA account for my book review blog, which made very little), and ebay. I'll be using your hub for future reference.

      Hi misslog123

      I don't do much else than what I wrote in my hubs on this subject plus the occasional social media sharing (facebook, twitter and pinterest). Plus making sure my articles are "fresh". That means regular tweaking to meet changin HP rules.

      You may also like to read my article on Google Trends to keep your titles Google friendly.

      Good luck and have fun.

      Up until recently I had only 1 hub and it does well. It's very encouraging to know people are still making money and just goes to show you that original, well written hubs and finding a niche are the most important to attract readers. I had no idea that writing in word and then copying it to notepad removed the back junk..I didn't know word produced any.

    • misslong123 profile image

      Michele Kelsey 3 years ago from Edmond, Oklahoma


      I would like to look into the Keyword Academy you talk about, and maybe I missed something, but do you have a link or some key words I can search for in Google in order to find said Keyword Academy?

      I took very detailed notes on this hub and would like to try to implement them. I have done this before, but this is sort of my learning method. lol. I think I will read about the Market Samarai tool too (your other hub about SEO), although I'm not sure that that is free. I will soon find out.

      Another question that came about which is also why I spent a couple days (believe it or not) studying this hub is: You said you make a three figure income from hubpages/paypal (maybe Amazon too) per month with 59 hubs. That is pretty impressive! I believe you, but I am wondering how you maintain that steady income. I'm sure you can't give away too many secrets, but, well, do you do a steady amount of SEO or something? Do you have a schedule of things you do to maintain this income (i.e. getting backlinks, posting on FB, contributing x amount to the hubpages community, or whatever)? This would really help me out if I understood it a bit better. I just haven't figured out how to make the amount of money I'd like to on Hubpages.

      Thank you so much in advance for your time! Also, thank you for the great article with all of the great advice!!

      Open two 'Text' capsules, click the arrow to enter one into the other so that they are side-by-side. Edit the one on the right and it should have white/grey/blue boxes on left (I forget order).

    • SpaceShanty profile image

      SpaceShanty 4 years ago from United Kingdom

      Thanks Sue, I can't seem to see it! It is not just for Amazon capsules, I often see it where a small amount of text is in a blue box on the right, usually a summary, maybe my browser is blocking it?

    • Sue Adams profile image

      Juliette Kando FI Chor 4 years ago from Andalusia

      In Editing mode, Shanty, insert an Amazon capsule, then at the top left corner of the editing box for that capsule, you can chose to have it white or blue. Click on the blue color.

      I believe it only works if the capsule is set to 1/2 width, i.e. aligned to the right with a text capsule on its left. Try to make the text capsule the same length / size as the Amazon ad capsule. The text capsule should contain a title and the minimum required 50 words per ad.

      Hi younghopes,

      The RSS capsule has actually been phased out since this Hub was written, so thank you for bringing this up. I have updated the paragraph "Finishing Touches" to include tips on the "Summary" and on "Groups" instead. You can still use the "Links" feature to link to your other Hubs but we are only allowed up to 2 links to the same domain on any Hub.

      It is actually a very sad story about the phasing out of the RSS capsule. HP staff suddenly decided that it had to make room for a very unpopular new feature: the sliding so called "Related Search" advertisements which, as many hubbers do not know, are links leading to entire pages of spammy, unrelated ads, for which we do NOT get a share of revenue. Many of us feel that this

      1.) discredits our reputation as authors

      2.) it lures readers away from our content, and also

      3.) that it breaks the agreement of our 60 / 40 share of HubPages income from advertising.

      Just click on "related Searches" and you will see what I mean. Everyone reading this, to find out more about the scandal of the "Related Search" adverts, PLEASE join in the protest by joining this forum thread:

      With more of us knowing the truth about the deceptive "Related Searches", hopefully we will be able to convince staff that we do not want them on our domains.

      Hi Sue, thanks for the response! That's a great tip that I will keep in mind with future hubs. (And I actually meant to say $12k, not $12; I'm not sure if you caught that little typo.)

    • Sue Adams profile image

      Juliette Kando FI Chor 5 years ago from Andalusia

      Welcome to HubPages Neinahpets. I had a look at your profile and hubs. Keep up the good work. You might meet your target, depending on how often you publish.

      Here is one more tip: Use the "groups" feature, to be found in edit mode in the side bar next to "summary". When you have more hubs, put them into "groups", like for example, if you have many recipe hubs, you could have group headings like "starters", "main courses", "deserts" etc. and also group any other hubs by their joined categories, then 2 of your related hubs will appear as "previous" or "next" at the bottom of every hub for further reading.

      Always have at least five photos to qualify for the slide-show feature on each Hub, which again, increases your page views and Hub Score.

      Do you use public domain photos and videos or your own?

      Hi Majjhima,

      I never have written hubs directly online and saved them as unpublished so I couldn't tell you which is the best method. From my experience the hubscore does increase from an initial 58 or so rapidly to above 75 in a day or two and often keeps going up in time, sometimes to over 90. But don't worry too much about hubscores as long as they are over 75 you must be doing pretty well.

      Sue, thanks for taking the effort to come out with such us good hubs. On my previous hubs, i did all the writing on words document and published only after i have competed writing. And i did differently for my latest hub by doing it online and saved as unpublished hub before submission. I notice the latter one allow the hub score to increase (i don't quite understand why?), with quite a good initial score when it's submitted. Could you advise the pro and con for the two methods base on your experience?

      Ths hub is useful whether you want to earn or not. It adds a little more professionalism to published hub. I learned a lot here especially with the format and layout of my hubs. Many nay thanks!

      Thank you Cheeky Girl. Nice comment coming from someone as experienced as you seem to be. However, with all the changes now here on HubPages, having been forced to remove affiliate links, this Hub is not going to help my kitty very much. Still, as long as other Hubbers can enjoy the benefits of my knowledge, I am happy in terms of job satisfaction if nothing else.

      Great Caribqueen, that was the whole point of the exercise, to make people think again about what they can do to increase earnings here on HubPages.
