    Gokkaya, you should get a welcome email from HubPages with some information.  Also check out Darkside's articles, I found them very helpful when I started.  The other obvious thing to do is click on the Help button!!

    I wouldn't say "everyone" is making money.  To begin with, you can expect to earn only a few cents per article.  I've been here a couple of months and written 44 Hubs, and have only made about $4.

    If you really want to make money, get yourself a Saturday job or try selling stuff on eBay.  I made $3,000 on eBay just by selling unwanted things from around the house (old stamp albums, coins, ornaments, clothes, toys, games etc). 

    However if you enjoy writing and are willing to put in some effort to write interesting, informative articles (like in a magazine), you can eventually build up a readership and earn better money than I'm achieving!  How much depends how good a writer you are, whether the topics you choose are popular, and how hard you're prepared to work. 

    Good luck!

      Marisa,

      There are people making way more than you on Hubpages smile

      It is possible. But I wouldn't count on OP making a living from Hubpages just yet smile Hubpages provide a great leverage to your texts, but it takes knowledge, time and dedication to figure out how to use this leverage... Writing a good text, while important, is just a small part of the equation.

        Yes, I know some people are doing well!  I'd be shocked if I was doing much at this stage - I'm still a greenhorn! 

        I guess my alarm bells go off when someone pops in asking how to make money, almost as their first post here.  It tends to suggest unrealistic expectations.

    Wow, another young one in this place =]

    I've only just started too, and am finding things a tad hard. My score is only 2 -cricri-

    Lol.

    I'm sure things will work out for both of us.

    We can be new-hub buddies.

    Make sure you're old enough to actually sign up for Google AdSense.  Be sure to read their terms of service, you may have to be 18 to legally sign up with them.

    True that =]

    Maybe Google is taking away your AdSense earnings for being underage?

      You have to be 18 but you could still do it via a parent or guardian.

      You mean tell AdSense you're 18 when you're not? Or do the right thing? XD

    No. Too much competition in this niche. It will require an enormous effort to get at least some traffic... and will not show positive ROI for sure...
