    I am a writer on Hub Pages. While yes, you can earn money writing on there, it takes a lot of articles to get to that point. However, if you use proper keyword research and create quality in demand articles, some people earn a decent amount on that site.

  2. Junaid, I think that Hubpages are excellent either for SEO or as a publishing and sharing platform. Great article for people starting out with hubpages.

  3. Dean Saliba says:

    I’ve used Hubpages for a while now and although I like them you can earn more money with InfoBarrel. 🙂

  4. Like Samuel, I think the SEO value is what is more important from HubPages than actual earnings.

  5. Jayden says:

    Do HubPages give you money for each article or does google give you the money whenever someone clicks on your hub? Or is it both?

    • Maddie Ruud says:

      Good question. You earn money either directly through AdSense, or by joining our HubPages Ad Program (which includes AdSense and allows for more ad units per page), in which case we pay directly through PayPal.

      Let me know if you have further questions!

      Best,

  7. Sarah Jackson says:

    Good i am gonna try this now…

    • Sarah Jackson says:

      so here i have a problem when i enter the url they saying Give a unique hub title and don’t use slash what it mean?

  8. Muhammad Junaid Iqbal says:

    @Sarah, It will be good, if you type the unique title out there and do not interupt unique URL section, as it will be automatically updated as per your title of the article. Do not put a slash at the begining or end of the URL you are editting, if you need to edit it. It should be something like this in “Give Your Hub a Unique Web Address” field:

    Correct: Junaid-Iqbal-is-a-good-guy

    Wrong: /Junaid-Iqbal-is-a-good-guy

    Wrong: Junaid-Iqbal-is-a-good-guy/

    Hope you got it..
