Hub Pages is a nice platform for making money through writing activities. The present page is a review of hub pages on the basis of experience of the writer.

Overview of Hubpages

Internet may be a good source of income for those who want to earn money by writing and doing other activities on Internet. In 2005, I decided to stay at home to groom my child till he is able to go to school on his own. I enjoy my life, but often find it difficult financially. My husband advised me get into hub pages that he used to do when he was in university. I am not very good at writing but somehow completed several write ups on diverse issues. But, even with a small set of articles at hub pages, it pays me around 70-100 US$ once in a couple of months. (approximately, around Rs. 3500-5000). That is enough for me as pocket money at the moment. Had I been a voracious reader and a prolific writer, I would have earned much more. I thought of writing a review on this programme as I think there are many students who may want to earn some money from the activity they like most, i.e., writing. One can virtually write on anything and everything and earn some decent money. Hub-page is free to join and it is engaging in a creative way. Those who write on lokkatha.com can also experiment hub-pages and link all their articles with each other to get more traffic to their articles. Good for both lok-katha and their own earnings.

What is Hubpages? (Write as author)

Hub means an article on hub pages. The more articles one may have in her/his name, the more she is expected to earn. One needs to be patient and consistent in her approach. One may write a hub easily, but in order to have a sustained income one needs to keep on writing for a long time and gather many write ups in order to get a substantial income. It takes time to earn as it will take time to write many articles and write ups. However, it is not as difficult as it sounds. The following may be some crucial steps to become a successful writer at hub pages.

Some Indicative Steps to become a good writer at Hub pages (or at any other writing site like wikinut)

(1) Make writing a habit. Devote a couple of days to research on something and write a hub (a write up of around 700-1000 words).
(2) Review your hub carefully and upload the article in subsections and add suitable photographs to make the hub attractive.
(3) Repeat the same process. Keep on writing. If you are able to write 1 article and upload it in the form of a hub in 3 days, you will write 10 hubs in a month and 120 hubs in a year. Over a period of 2-3 years you may be able to write enough hubs to have a sizable monthly income. Please remember that people who are currently earning a substantial income today are those who have built their fortune through writing hubs in their pass time of last couple of years.
(4) However, in order to see your progress in earning money you need not wait for years. All your earnings will be accumulated till you gather $50 and you shall be paid through several ways including pay-pal in the month you accumulated your $50 earnings.

I was writing for a few months in Hubpages but I received very small amount of views.In wikinut at least the number of views is more though I am not sure about the bouncing rate of my page.

Dear Debraj, Yes the views initially seems small. with around 20 hubs, I am getting around 3000 views per month. But for 3000 views, I get around 6 $ per month. It is not fair to compare hubpages with wikinut. Both are great in their own ways and have their own benefits. Moreover, for an online writer, it is always better to diversify.
