Passive Online Income: A HubPages Earnings Surprise

I really haven't been able to write as much last month or this month as I had originally planned and hoped. In fact, for the year 2010 I have written exactly 1 Hub article, 4 articles at Xomba, and 14 blog posts.

So, I am really shocked that with another 10 days to go in the month, I have earned almost as much in AdSense this month as I did in all of January which has 31 days. Even more surprising is that the majority of it is coming from HubPages.

In reality, I had written HubPages off when compared to Xomba thinking that my time would be more profitably spend working for passive income online at that site. But maybe I was wrong?! Maybe I am starting to see the fruits of my labors that occurred in the fall of last year when I started figuring out a little about what I was doing when it comes to SEO, keywords, and writing content. It just might be that by the time I started on Xomba, I had a better understanding about what to do so that results were seen pretty quickly.

Or it could simply be random chance. To be honest, I really can't say. All I know is that life is pretty busy right now and time for writing is at a premium. This means that the majority of my online income is passive right now. That is encouraging to me. Even though I don't have a lot of time, the time that I do spend writing will be paying off in the future. The important thing is to just keep at it and be persistent.


  1. Congrats on the HP income.. I haven't had much luck with them, but that could be 'coz haven't put much time into KW research, etc. Maybe it is time I do.. Thnxs for sharing this and inspiring me:-)

  2. Just spending a few minutes doing keyword research can go a long way towards improving your AdSense revenue and increasing your passive online income.

  3. I only have experience with eHow and even then, I only started with it about 2 months ago.

    Maybe after I start earning some decent part-time income from eHow, I'll check out another place like HubPages.

    Interesting post!

  4. Moon,
    That is a good idea and what I have been doing. Get comfortable with one site, see the potential, then try something else for awhile. See what works, what doesn't, and make adjustments.
