    I mean, seriously, how much? I am planning to work as hard as needed. But I must know the game-plan before I rush blindly making hubs! Help!

      How much? The sky's the limit. Many people have and do earn anywhere between $100-$2000 a month.

      But it's not all easy - you need to learn how to write quality content, and learning how to get traffic is a HUGE learning curve. Starting out with the learning centre and FAQ will give you a good start, although don't expect to earn serious money till you start seeing serious traffic.

        I did read those info. But they don't give much hint how to make a hub that will attract customers like bees towards honey. What does really make such cheesy hubs? What is the secret?

        If I know that, I shall be making them. But without knowing the rules of the game, it may become a blind hit.

        By the way, is there any surety that one can make $1000 and so on, from this HubPages? Where are those people?

          There is no definite way to attract traffic - it varies depending on your chosen writing topics. There are thousands of people writing online, so you're in competition with all those who are writing on the same topic as you. But after awhile you start to pick up what works and what doesn't, and online content generally generates more traffic with age.

            In other words, writing here is a waste of time. Hah! I smelled something fishy... The 'success stories' graphs are bogus. HubPages claims that those hubber still earn like $3800 per month. What a lie!! We all know that after the Panda and Idle-hub feature, they do not get that figure anymore. They now perhaps get $60 or something like per month.

                Well, if calling a newcomer a 'sockpuppet' makes you feel better, then that's fine. I am a newbie who asked advice and guidance. What did you give me? Insults. It's not that I can't irritate you. Get a life sorry loser!! Real Americans lift up, and they don't bully people.

                Sigh. I had to report about you. Sorry to see you go for awhile.

                    Yes, that explains your love for bullying. Well, I am new here and you can successfully bully me. One day you will surely get your lesson.

              Now you're exaggerating in the other direction.   I never reached anything like $3800 a month, even when HubPages was at its peak.  But even though I've lost around 80% of my traffic, I still earn over $150 a month, which means I'm earning around $1 per Hub per month.    So if you take that figure and multiply it by the number of Hubs the "success stories" have, you'd get a more accurate picture.

                Have you tried experimenting with Amazon ads on your hubs? I'm just trying to get a better picture of the amount of money being made by hubpages members.

                  Amazon ads aren't successful unless you're specifically recommending a product in the text of your Hub.  eBay ads do better because they  have a long cookie, but you can't always be sure of the relevance of the item displayed.

    I make about $20 to $25 per month so far. I did have my first payout which was $71 last month. This amount came from the Hubpages Ad program and eBay.

      Don't bother. This user is a sockpuppet. Who continually makes new accounts in an attempt to claim Hubpages is a scam.
