      depends on how good of a writer you are and how long you want to wait for a payout.  However, you do earn money, it just sits there and stares at you, mocking you until you reach $100 payout.

      Here is a quote from HubPages FAQ (http://hubpages.com/faq/#hpads-payments)
      "6. How do payments work for the HubPages Earnings Program?
      We provide you with a managed service which includes ad performance reporting, and a monthly payment directly via PayPal, once you’ve reached a $50 payout threshold. Earnings from the Ad and eBay Programs will be added together to help you reach the $50 payout threshold faster. The payment represents your portion of the revenue share associated with the HubPages Earnings Program advertising that has run on your share of impressions on your Hubs. You can view your HubPages Earnings Program earnings in My Account > Earnings > Balance History.

      Payments will be disbursed around the 28th of the month for the previous month's earnings."

      I believe that the $100 payout has to do with Google, as it recently (2012) raised it's initial payout limit from $50 to $100.

      If you want to really advance, it is worth considering participating in HubPages Ad Program. You will have to have an account with Google Adsense. However, you first need to have published at least 10-20 Hubs or have published elsewhere on a regular basis before being considered for Adsense. That being said, if you have fulfilled this requirement, got the okay from Google, etc., you're well on your way toward making $$.  Just be sure to always write great content and include good keywords (see Google AdWords) and don't forget to opt to write a Stellar Hub (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Elem … tellar-Hub).

      Best of luck.--Deb

      Only if you write entirely original, high-quality content that is on a topic which is useful and helpful to lots of readers.

    relache is quite right. But sometimes you just get lucky, even when Google's keyword tool might suggest otherwise. By the way, it seems to me Google's Adsense payout threshold has always been $100, same with Amazon.

    Like all things, if you are prepared to play by the rules, put in the hard work, then yes, eventually you could earn yourself a nice small amount of side income from the Adsense adverts on the site.

    However, keep your expectations realistic, anything revolving around "earning money online" is hard work, seriously, don't kid yourself.

    The best approach is to always focus on quality that you enjoy creating that way you pour your passion and talents into it, instead of creating something generic.

    All the best smile
