October was a great month for my Hubpages. My Halloween hubs really took off and did much better than I thought they would.
As you can see from my traffic stats I peaked going towards Halloween and then my traffic dropped some when the Halloween shoppers slowed. This is what happens when you have a lot of seasonal content.
So I guess the question is… how much money did I make on Hubpages in October and how does it compare to September?
October Adsense – $448.15 vs September Adsense – $216.71
October Amazon – $190.07 vs September Amazon – $101.47
October eBay Partner Network – $76.94 vs September eBay Partner Network – $133.95
Grand Total – October: $715.16 vs September: $452.13
That was an increase of $264.04 over what my hubs earned in September. My goal is to hit $1,000 a month or more from Hubpages alone by April 2011.
I am doing this and Infobarrel as side projects in addition to my niche blogs. Overall, my niche blogs make more money per article than on these adsense revenue sharing sites. However, I like having a mix of income sources. Plus, Hubpages is a great place for me to build backlinks to my blogs and actually earn money for my article marketing efforts.
