You might remember Court from the Keyword Academy, who had a challenge with Ryan Hupfer back in April of last year. This sparked the 30-Day Challenge which continues to this day. In a recent blog post, Court reminds that he made $475 during that one-month challenge period.
But, as every veteran Hubber knows, you make the bulk of your revenue well after the period of time when you publish your Hubs. This has been true for Court as well. He reports that he has made $4,003.43 from his Hubs. Keep in mind that it’s just been a year, and we see time and time again that great-quality Hubs continue to earn for years.
While Court is a pro at identifying lucrative topics to write about, but what’s impressive is that he didn’t spend any time updating his Hubs or promoting them. The high credibility that HubPages has in search engine’s eyes—due in no small part to the efforts of Hubbers like you that flag low-quality Hubs—has helped high-quality Hubs get the attention they deserve.
Even Hubbers who don’t want to do keyword research, but would like to write about the topics they love, can earn. There are some important keys, though, to choosing a title to your Hub, and how to break up topics into separate Hubs, that will increase your traffic.
