The HubPages Journey is About to Start... Again...

I am constantly looking for new and improved ways to earn residual internet income... I started HubPages quite a while ago but instead of "keeping at it" I broke the cardinal rule... I gave up and started some other projects...

Interestingly enough, here I am... back on HubPages ready to earn some residual internet income... 

What brought me back? Earnings... Earnings that I did not expect... I logged into my Google AdWords and Amazon Associates account and there sat some money... From my HubPages...

From this point forward... HubPages will be my primary focus... Besides my family and friends of course ;)

Happy Writing!

A New Website Name... A New Beginning...

As you may have noticed, this blog has gone through a substantial change. It is now called Residual Internet Income and will no longer be focused on just eHow. I, like many other eHow members, have diversified my "Residual Income" portfolio and this blog is going to reflect that.

Thank you to all those people who have supported me on my journey to earning consistent residual income. It has and will be a fun ride!

You're Hired! (Update to "The End is Near... Maybe..." Post)

Well after having a substantially large scare, my application was approved and I am now an official Demand Studios writer!

So what does this mean for me? Well, only time will tell but I do know one thing... I have not lost a source of residual income and I have GAINED a source of fixed income.

Although I plan on writing articles that earn income residually, Demand Studios has several different writing jobs which writers are paid per publish.

Well... Now I need to get back to writing... and earning...

I hope all is well with my fellow eHow'ers... Have a great day!

March eHow Internet Income Earnings

Well, March is winding down and there is only a few days left in the eHow March pay period. From the looks of it, I should take in around $50.00 which is about $12.00 more than February. I am continuing to increase earnings each month so eHow has satisfied me so far.

Many eHow earners have told me that it take about three months to really start to see earnings. I have noticed that all of my articles that were published during my first month on eHow are earning pretty regularly.

This month I have wrote around 25 articles and they too have began to earn pretty consistently.

I see a bright future with eHow... From the looks of things, a $90+ April is very probable!

Thanks for reading!

New eHow Keyword Survey

Thursday, March 25, 2010

The eHow Bugs Have Infested My Earning Potential...

Well, this month may not be as big of a success as I had originally hoped. The unfortunate truth is that has experienced some substantial technical difficulties which has not allowed me to continue writing.

On a positive note, I have been able to publish more than most this month (21) which brings my article library total to 59. I plan on writing at least 4-5 more articles this month so I can hit my goal of 25 articles a month...

Even more positive is my newly found SEO software called Micro Niche Finder. This has helped me find great niche keywords that have already got some of my March 15th articles organic traffic and decent earnings! One article in particular, which published March 13, 2010, has over 40 views (organic) and has earned close to $2.00.

I hope all of you have had good luck this month despite the frustrating technical bugs on eHow...

Happy writing!

New Personal Internet Income Milestone - $ 4.67 Increase!

Today my earnings updated and I gained $ 4.67! This nearly doubles my former record. I can't help but think this is due to my recent purchase of Micro Niche Finder.

All of my recent articles that I wrote (Published since March 15, 2010) using Micro Niche Finder have had decent earnings in the first 2-5 days of being published. I hope these means that I will be hitting my March earning goal!

How is everyone else doing?

To your success,

Rob Farmer

For the Uncertain...

I'm not usually one to promote things... especially if they re not my own. However, the previous post about Micro Niche Finder was completely legit. I don't want you to think that I'm trying to fill this blog full of advertisements because that is far from the truth. I just wanted to show my audience something that I came across that REALLY WORKS!

I want give you an example to show you what Micro Niche Finder can and will do for you!

I wrote an eHow article that was published two days ago (March 13, 2010) and that exact article is indexed by Google on the Page 2 right now! Keep in mind, when a user searches the keyword phrase I got from Micro Niche Finder, there are a total of 2,190,000 listings.

Can you imagine that! I write an article and two days later it is indexed ahead of over 3.6 million preexisting internet websites!

Did I also mention that the keyword phrase I used averages 8,600 searches a month?

I rest my case... I just wanted to share Micro Niche Finder with all of my blog followers because it is something I just can;t keep a secret!

As always... Happy writing,

Rob Farmer

Wow! Micro Niche Finder is AMAZING!

I seriously cannot say enough about how great Micro Niche Finder is! I got it a couple of days ago and I am already seeing a HUGE spike in my earnings! I wish I would have known about this long, long ago... I already was pumped about my eHow earnings but now... Oh MY!

I HIGHLY recommend this to EVERYONE trying to earn more money on eHow and the internet in general!

Article Production...

My buddy Jeremy Miller, author of The Ultimate Guide to Making Money on eHow,  over last night and we were discussing article production. Pretty much anything he tells me I follow considering that he is making over $1,000 a month and I'm looking to break $100 soon.

After talking to him, I realized that I have been spending way too much time analyzing the progress of my articles rather than writing more... I'm not sure how I got in this funk, but I have pulled my way out of it... I have recently knocked out nine articles and now that I have found the right writing method, I think that I might end this month with great earnings...

I'm not sure if any of you guys are doing what i was doing, but remember... article production (as long as they are written properly) is the key to earning at eHow... lets not forget that....

  • Current Monthly Earnings: $ 18.66
  • Number of Published Articles: 47 (9 just wrote in last two days so really 38)
  • Average Earnings a Day in March: $ 1.55
  • Total Days as a eHow Member: 80
  • Total eHow Earnings to Date: $ $72.69

New Personal Internet Income Milestone - $ 2.59 Increase!

My eHow internet income jumped $ 2.59 from March 9th to March 10th.  This surpasses my original daily gain record ($ 2.52) by $ .05 but hey... it still surpassed it! I think the key to success is building on all great accomplishments... big or small.

I have about 15 articles that should mature in a week or two so I'm keeping my fingers crossed in hopes for bigger and bigger internet income gains through eHow.

I just published another eHow survey that I would like for everyone to participate in... it is regarding monthly goals.

Please click "New Monthly eHow Earnings Survey" to take it!

Thanks for reading and participating in my blog!

Internet Income - eHow Direct Deposit # 2: $ 38.05

Well, I just received my second payment from eHow and I am very pleased.

Internet income, through eHow, has consistently increased for me and since eHow pays me promptly around the 10th of each month... I consider this to be the best source of residual income on the internet.

Although $ 38.05 doesn't seem to be that much, realize that I have only wrote 38 article (15 of which have not matured) so the potential to earn big is there.

I'm going to use this months eHow internet income to pay my water bill... Thanks eHow!

Another Big Earning Gain...

March is turning out to be my best experience on eHow.  Since I joined eHow (Dec. 23, 2009) my monthly earnings have doubled each month (January: $ 15.98, February: $ 38.05).  Today, my earnings increased from $9.40 to $11.92 ($ 2.52 increase) which is my largest to date!

According to the eHow forums, I think everyone is having a similar experience this month! I'm happy for everyone who has experienced this because results are definitely the best motivation to write! On that note, I think I'm going to sign off here and write my 39th article...

Last months trend (February):
  • $ 1.36 per day
My current trend:
  • $ 1.49 per day

Thanks again for all of the support! 

How did everyone else do today?

eHow Internet Income Earnings Update...

Hello fellow eHow'ers!

This month is going fairly well for me. I have yet to write an article this month and I'm still earning decent passive internet income.

My current earnings are $ 9.40 with a total of 38 articles. At this rate, I'm on track to earn $ 36.43 so I definitely need to start writing more articles.  As I mentioned before, my goal is to earn $ 90 this month.

How is everyone else doing? (i.e. number of articles, earnings this month)

Happy earning!

eHow Web Survey Results!

I want to thank everyone for participating in my eHow web survey! I got 30 total responses from eHow members who shared the following information about their eHow internet income:

  • Total Articles Published
  • Average Earnings Per Day
  • Average Earnings Per Month
The graph above (which can be enlarged by clicking it) shows that earnings generally increase when the number of articles increase. However, if you look closer, there are a few individuals that are making a substantially larger amount of eHow internet income per month that other eHow members with comparable number of articles published.

I compared this data to my earnings (38 articles - $60 a month) and noticed that I am "ahead of the game" in comparison to others with about the same number of articles. I know this is a result of the tips and tricks that I got from Jeremy Miller's "The Ultimate Guide to Making Money on eHow" (Thanks Jeremy!)...

How do you guys compare?

I'm very pleased with the results of this survey... Thanks again to all of those who participated!

What a Day!

Well, I told my self that I wasn't going to post daily on this blog and spend more time on actually writing eHow articles... but I have to share this!

My online earning's are usually right around $1.00 to $ 1.50 a day, but I just noticed that my earnings jumped from $ .90 to $ 3.40 today ($ 2.50 increase!).  Thats nearly 2.5x's my average.  I know not to expect this to continue but I am very pleased!

A bit of wishful thinking:

  • If this online earning trend continues, I am on pace to make $77.50 for the month of March! This is a little shy of my goal ($ 90.00) so I had better get off here and start writing some more articles!
Thanks for everyones support!

Earning Internet Income Through eHow

Welcome to my "eHow Internet Income" blog... It amazes me how many people are not aware of the earning potential of eHow, so I thought it would be a good idea to document my internet income earning experience through this blog.

On December 23, 2009... A close friend of mine, Jeremy Miller, had convinced me to join eHow by showing me that his eHow earnings for November 2009 and reached $ 1,000! He had been a member for almost a year and had wrote a considerable amount of articles. He has an eBook that explains all of the tips and tricks he used to get to $ 1,000 as fast as he did!

However, his eHow earnings had grown very well in comparison to other internet income methods that I had tried before (i.e. Google AdSense, affiliate links, etc.).

To date, I earned $ 1.50 in the last 7 days of December and I am currently up to $ 54.93 this year. Although this may not seem like much, but with the birth of my son last August and a full time job, this is really quie an accomplishment.

My goal for March 2010 is to hit $ 90.00 or more in passive internet income.  If you would like to "follow" me on this journey please feel free to click the follow button on the top-right portion of this page!
