    Roughly, how much do you earn from 'hubbing' each month?

    I've obviously only just started, but this is a really addictive site, and i can see how people get so into it! it's lots of fun, and if you can earn a bit of money while having some fun, then that sounds good to me!

      Currently I earn around $20-$30 a month (December was a great month - I made $45, presumably due to Christmas shopping).  I earned absolutely nothing for the first three months, then it started building slowly - so it takes patience.

        You may not earn more than $10 per month for the first six months. Thereafter it will be a very different figure.

      $400-500 a month, but I haven't written a hub for a while. Had a good December - $750+

    I'm slowly building up an idea of how it works, and it's a good job that hubbing can be fun, and an enjoyable pasttime aswell, seen as patience is required!

    Those of you who are making fairly impressive amounts of money like Mr Mark Knowles, do you mind my asking wether you publisise and promote your hub around the web through blogs of personal websites forums ect, or is it just normal traffic from google searches?

    I wrote a Hub about how you can improve your Hub earnings and it includes a poll for folks to say how they've been doing.

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Improve-Your-Hub-Earnings

    So far 44% of the people who've responded make less than $10 a month.

    My personal best in 2008 was a one month take of about $870, with nearly $200 of that coming from the much-maligned Kontera ads.

      I just voted on your hub so hopefully that will change a little lol

      Kontera did not work for me - took me 6 months to make $100, so I guess it depends what you write on. Thanks for the link to my cubicle site though smile

      I am reading your hubpages.  they are very useful!

    Depending on the topic you need to be building links to your hubs in forums/blogs whatever so that google will niotice you and bring in the search traffic. That said the same topic on a hub will generally get more search traffic than the topic on your own site - I know Ive tried it!

    I made about $200 in 10 months, give or take a few bucks.
    Now that I got my first google payout its adding up quicker in the last few weeks.
    That is from all the affiliates, Google being the best, E-bay second, Kontera third and Amazon last.

    It took me 10 months to earn just over $100 from AdSense in December. I notice that since then I've earned a third of that already. Nowhere near Mark's totals, but then again I only have 40 hubs. I have earned a grand total of $13 from Amazon.

      Dorsiposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      I've noticed that too Susan. I'm already half way to my next Google payout, and this has been since the beginning of Dec, so the earnings are definitely piling up. (or inching up I guess on however you look at it)
      I just think it's the coolest thing in the world to actually get paid to hub.

        Snap, Dorsi.  I've made $45 since the beginning of December which is amazing.  I'd like to think it's a trend that will continue, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Christmas shopping may have had a little to do with it.  Still, I'm halfway to my next payout already so that has to be a good thing!

    I've also started on blogger for the first time. I think it's good in addition to hubpages.

    I now earn $110-150 per month, all from AdSense (I don't have Kontera running yet), on a bit more than 100 Hubs.

    I started hubbing just after Christmas, and I already have $140.00.  I've been promoting my site on facebook nearly everyday.

    1. Dorsi profile image92
      Dorsiposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      That's an impressive amount for such a short time. If I may ask Tyler, how are you promoting at Facebook? I always link my hubs to my profile there but do nothing other than that.

      1. LegendaryN8 profile image60
        LegendaryN8posted 8 years ago in reply to this

        I think I can shed some light on this one...

        Tyler is doing "active linking" of his material on Facebook.

        For instance, he may see that one of his friends wants to learn a fun way to lose weight, so he says "OK, here is someone who could benefit from my article." and thus actively promotes it.

      Very cool!  I would love any advice you might share about how you're doing this.  Maybe you could do a hub about it.

      1. Reg Brittain profile image60

        Or perhaps, you might post a link to your Facebook profile?

      Facebook is a great social networking site, it's good to have a profile there anyway, and you can submit your hubs there directly from hubpages. I have not only found lots of family and friends there but have noticed more people reading my hubs off of my profile.

      I use most of the social bookmarking sites like facebook.
      I know it is a bit slow to make money online, but you are out there working and you ask intelligent questions and seem fearless. I can hardly believe your writing output in such a short time.
      I wish you the best, and I am really impressed with you and the way you think.

        I would say using facebook is fine but the amount of friends you would have to have to make a decent impact would be incredible. It would probably easier with an established facebook precense.

    I have earned about $140 so far.  Not all paid out yet, since I have not reached all of the limits.  I earned  $50+ from both eBay and Google and $20+ from both Kontera & Amazon.  Not too bad for less than 6 months of hubbing and 11 hubs. wink

    With 363 hubs I am getting paid about 500.00 a month from google-kontera-ebay-amazon combo on an average.  If you add in the hits that I drive to my blog from here then it is a bit more.  Hub pages has been very very good to me. smile

    Does anyone here make any measurable money writing here or other revenue sharing sites or do you have actual paying clients that pay real money for articles?
    hmm

    1. Janet21 profile image71
      Janet21posted 8 years ago in reply to this

      I am relatively new to hubpages, but the money is already starting to come in.  So, I am hopeful.  I also write on Squidoo and have two blogs which together earn me over $1,000/month.  So, yes, you can make real money.

        Hi can you please enlighten me as to what blogging sites you use and also is it just with adsense? - because I have not made a cent with any of the affiliated sites on hub pages other than adsense and that now stands at $44.00...cheers

          I have wordpress blogs hosted on my own domains.  No adsense.  Earnings are made from affiliate sales.

    Stacie,
    for the last 18 months, since my husband became disabled, I have been supporting our family (8 people) on a combination of the money I make on affiliates here and paying clients on other venues.
    Some of my best clients found me here.

    I just started a Face Book account.  It seems a little silly, (thanks to the people who've befriended me already,) I don't know if it will really help with Hub Pages, but it looks like a good place to waste some time.

    I have over 500 friends on Facebook, and many times I simply promote my site in the online chat with whatever friends are online.  I simply copy and paste my site link when im chatting with friends and they go and check it out.  I've learned that the nicer you are to people the more likely they are to visit your site and express interest in all that you're doing.

    Lately, I've been earning between $400-$500 in Adsense each month, about $50 in amazon, and about $30-$60 in ebay. Kontera, eh... I haven't checked that in a while; I don't think that I make $100 a month but probably every few months.

    I was a big fan of December, as my amazon shot up past $200, and ebay went past $150ish. That was nice.

    I don't use anything except my own blogs to drive traffic, which actually gets so-and-so traffic. I have some of my hub links on my facebook account, but not many. I don't get much traffic via facebook anyway though. The majority of my traffic is solely from search engines.

        Mark and relache make more than me with their combined earnings from all of the affiliates. My amazon and ebay aren't as well as I'd like, and when combined all of the affiliates, they still make more than I do. It's a lovely addition to a regular income though.
