      It depends on several factors:

      1. Topic / Subject of your article.
      2. Clever placement of ads
      3. Topics that attract more high-paying ads. Electronics, Gadget Reviews, Online Jobs, Finance are some of the Topics that will attract more high-paying ads and will generate more Revenue for you.

      There are people making $1 per month and there are people making $10000 per month. It is all about how clever and intelligent you are.

    I'd think you should make something at the end of the first month.  I made 9 dollars in my first month (Jan 08) but then made under $2 in Feb and a dreadful 7 cents in April! 

    The good news is that as you get more hubs and they get picked up by the search engines and backlinked, earnings do settle down and continue to increase.  For the first 6 months they will fluctuate wildly.  My advice is stick with it for a year and you'll see your earnings rising.  Good luck!

    Oh my....that varies GREATLY.  Some veteran hubbers report not earning a dime in their first 10 months.   You also have to realize that you don't necessarily get it when you earn it.  They have minimums, usually $100 I think.  That can take awhile.  Last I checked I had earned around $6 I think, but I won't see that money until it's $100.

    Yes. It is true but I doubt some one earning as big as $10000.

      I was wondering the same thing myself.  Been on here for six weeks, haven't made a dime. But then again, people don't click the google ads on the site very much.  I think it is based on the content but I am not going to change what I write for that reason.  The main thing seems to be patience.

      There is nothing to doubt. If I can make +$500 / month and people like Maddie can make +$1000, there is no wonder why people cannot make $10000 per month through adsense.

        It's a long way from $1000 per month to $10,000 per month. Nobody at HubPages is there yet, even people with 400+ Hubs don't make that much.

        And remember, people earn from eBay and Amazon as well - there is no guarantee that earnings quoted by Hubbers are all from Adsense.

        Only a handful of people - and I mean that literally - earn over $1000 per month from their Hubs, out of hundreds of thousands of Hubbers.

        It is not fair to new people to lead them to expect a higher income than they can reasonably earn. That just produces disappointment and frustration.

        If you earn enough from Adsense on HubPages in your first year to have a nice dinner or two out in a restaurant, you're doing well.

          Well said, Jenny.  I earned mere cents for my first three months here, but my earnings have steadily improved - the fourth month I earned $5, the next $10, and so on.  My December income was over $45 and I'm close to earning my third payout (Adsense pays out when you get to $100). 

          That may not sound like much, but when you consider I've written only about 1 Hub per month for the last twelve months, I think it's not bad for passive income!

          Hi Jenny: My Girlfirend's name is Jenny Too.

          OK. I am talking about making money with Hubs + Website + Blogs. I know it is next to impossible making $10000 just with hubs. One may need 20000 Hubs to make $10000.

          Most of my income comes from my websites followed by Blogs and Hubs. 15-20% of my income come from my Hubs.

          Have a look at THIS and see how serious and intelligent this Blogger is. Read some of HER Blog Posts and see what is Blogging and making money all about.

          How was your Valentine ?

          Cheers !

            Hi Ray,

            The original post was asking about making money here on HubPages, hence my comment.

            We have averaged several thousand a month online for the past few months, from a range of activities, and even though January was my best month on HubPages ever, I still made less than $100 of that several thousand from HubPages.

            I am not complaining - every little bit helps - but it takes knowledge and application to make money online in other ways.

            If someone is just starting out making money online, and they are here at HubPages discovering for the first time that they need, for example, to do keyword research and write keyword rich pages, they are not going to leap from that realisation to earning several thousand a month online from blogs and websites.

            I think it is important to give people realistic expectations.

            To go from zero to earning a living wage online will take time, study, practice, and dedication, just as in any other career.

              Hi Jenny:

              Sorry for getting the original post wrong. But I guess I provided some useful information here.

              I am on this online business since last 4 years and it took me this long to learn and reach $500 mark per month with 22 Blogs + 2 Websites + 200+ Hubs.

              Still learning..... !!!!

              You are absolutely right. Hub pages are not a good source of income but of knowledge. There are other places for online writing where one can earn much more.
              I have expressed doubt about some one earning $10000 and you have supported my idea with facts.

    I think it really takes a year to know how well you are doing.

    Like in any endeavor, it depends on how much you put into it, how much you learn from others, and how much you really want to succeed in earning money.

    For me, it hasn't been a priority in any of these areas-- yet I am seeing some earning progress. It is by no means a 'get rich quick'  scheme. It is more likely to be a turtle than a hare.

    I've been writing hubs about 3 months, and have done 14.

    13 of them have not earned a single penny between them. I published one hub on 1st Feb, and that has made $8 and change so far.
