$10,000 per MONTH, from HubPages?

    Is that possible?

      No.   The most successful Hubber I ever heard of, was earning around $2,500 a month - and that was in the glory days, before Google's first Panda update.

      Anyway, it would be absolutely stupid to even attempt to earn that kind of money on HubPages.  It would mean putting all your eggs in one basket - and it's a basket over which you have no control, because you don't own it.

      If you 're going to try to make money from revenue-sharing sites, then the sensible thing is to spread your writing over multiple sites (HubPages, Wizzley, Zujava, Xobba etc).  That way, if one goes bust, or changes its rules in a way you don't like, you don't lose 100% of your income overnight.  But if you want to make serious money, you need to have your own website too.

        Thanks. I heard someone earns $3800 per month from HubPages. Isn't that right? By the way, do you have your own website? If you have, then that's interesting.

          I can't remember how I did this exactly ... but I too was interested in whether some earnings claims were a bit bogus. I went on to google analytics, searched the site hubpages.com itself and on there it shows the top ten pages by subdomain and how many impressions they get. So if you take the top persons impressions and divide them by how many you have per month, then times how much you earn by that figure, you will get an exact idea of how much is the maximum earned on here.
          Hope that helps. It entertained me for a few hours while I figured it out.

            What was the figure like, maximum figure? Are you sure they were correct? Thanks.

          Yes, I do have my own websites - one on belly dance, one on flamenco and one on ballet.  They don't earn a lot of money because they're not high earning, high traffic niches - I run them because I love the subjects. 

          The reason I say you need your own website is that to make money online, you need to treat it as a full-time job, and you need to have multiple strings to your bow.  Rev-sharing sites just aren't enough.

    Marisa, you're responding to a banned troll.
