Don’t minimize the power of your writing skill. You can make huge money online writing.
As we will cover in this article, the HubPages revenue-sharing program is a great way to go. You can build a passive online income from your passion.
In fact, writing on Hubpages guarantee you up to $10 per 1000 views on your articles and videos. It is something that is not guaranteed for traffic on our website (using Adsense).
It is because HubPages has a special program where you earn per view independently of AdSense, Amazon, or eBay. Plus, you still earn money for those three platforms.
By writing constantly, and creating videos, you can build income and make huge money writing online.
What is HubPages?
HubPages is an online publishing site.
You write articles online that got reviewed and published. You create videos, upload them to the site, and get viewed. For those views, the site uses a revenue-sharing program; the revenue from on-page and in-video advertisements is shared between the site owner and writers.
Each article is called a hub; each writer is a hubber. You can create a video type of hub, where you only upload a video. You can also make money by asking questions or sharing someone else’s writing, even by linking it to your own work.

How to earn money writing on HubPages.com?
HubPages allows you to earn passive income from writing. You write articles about your passion, your interests, expertise, and knowledge. Ads are shown on those pages, and revenue from those ads is shared between you and HubPages.
If you can also create videos, which is a simple task nowadays, you can also make money from them. Upload them to Hubpages and earn money with in-video advertising networks like Google Adsense ( pre-roll, post-roll, streaming)!
The revenue is either 60/40 or 60/30/10, depending on traffic sources. If traffic comes normally, the writer gets 60%, and HubPages gets 40%.
If a hubber refers your article, you earn 60% of traffic revenue, Hubpages earn 30% of that revenue and the hubber who refers the article earns 10%.
It is good to notice that sharing is not about gross revenue. Instead, the ad impressions are shared. If you make $50 from Adsense when your ads are shown, you’ll keep 100% of your revenue.
In fact, HubPages does not split the revenue. It is paid directly into your AdSense account.
It is the same case for your own amazon sales, you earn 100% of the sales you get from Amazon through your shared articles.
So, for every 100 views, your ads are shown 60 times, and HubPages ones are shown 40 times. So, everyone involved in the process has opportunities to get 100% of the revenue generated when it’s its turn.
How much money can you make writing on HubPages?
You can make huge money writing on HubPages. As we saw earlier, your earnings will depend on the performance of your ads. The revenue program allows you to earn up to $10 per thousand views. The sky is the limit when it comes to revenues through Adsense, eBay, and Amazon.
But, it’s not a quick rich scheme. Yes, it can be instant ( thus, you need to wait for the payment date).
if you’re an experienced pro blogger, you can write and use your actual traffic stream to make huge money with Hubpages upon publication. But if you’re new, you have to be patient, build relationships and write constantly.
I first thought that it was a passive income where I did not have to manage a site. It was not.
I wrote about 6 hubs ( without search optimization, promotion, or anything similar)! Fortunately, an article did well on search engines and ranked on the first page for keywords like “get traffic using Google trends”.
In the end, it’s best to write that content on your own website and get 100% of the revenue and everything. However, if you want to write an article or two on one subject covered by Hubpages but unrelated to your websites, Hubpages is a good option.
Your earnings will vary according to your traffic sources, content categories, and more factors.
Make Money also with a flexible referral program!
The flexible referral program makes the HubPages system even more awesome. People are willing to link to your article, they make money for that.
You get 10% from views you send to HubPages (any page with ads on it) and 12% from referred members’ posts. Recall that those revenues are taken from Hubpages 40%.
If your writing skill is under the standard level, which you can improve from HubPages Learning Center, you can earn through the referral program.
Promote others who will get more views and more money, and get rewarded in the process.
How to get paid?
Payment are made through PayPal only from the Hubpages ad program.
But programs like Adsense, and Amazon use their own system such as PayPal, Direct transfer, and check. As I am outside the US, somewhere PayPal is not allowed, I manage an account from a friend living in the U.S. and get paid through Payoneer US payment services directly into my Payoneer account.
The minimum payout is $50 and paid out monthly!
This is an opportunity for anyone who wants to get paid writing.
Write about things you love, and things you know, and get paid! Even without paying fees for owning a professional blog, you can start making money.
Also, HubPages allow you to get approved for an Adsense account, they have a partnership. You can start today!
