    Has anyone on Hub Pages made over one thousand dollars online, from their writing, and or affiliate programs?

      I made over US$2000 last month - its taken me well over a year to get to that level

    Yes  smile   (over a period months)   Over $1000 here, over $1000 from other sites combined (with one site responsible for most of that).  Again, though, it sounds better than it really is; because $1000 over a stretch of months isn't great.   hmm

    Yes I have made about $2000 in 1 year.... but divide that by the number of hours, and you probably get about 40 cents an hour, which isn't anywhere near even decent.

      Did you make it with only 55 hubs and 89 fans?

        Firstly, fans are almost irrelevant to earnings... they will never click on your ads as they are not allowed!

        Secondly, no! Although it says I have been here for 12 months, I have only been publishing hubs for 6 weeks.... my money has been earnt through other things online, I am in the process of writing a hub listing every site that I have made money from, so add me as a fan and one day you will be one of the first to see it!

        I have made about $25-$30 from hubpages, in 6 weeks here, which I consider to be a very good start. This includes today, which has been my highest ever adsense day from hubpages (although only about $4)... your earnings get progressively higher....

        I'm in about the same place - my earnings come from a combination of HubPages and a couple of websites, with a dribble from Helium.  And my hourly rate's about the same!

        And Ryan is right, I don't earn money from my fans - they're fellow Hubbers, and they don't click on ads.  The money comes from external visitors.

          If you are clever.... there is an easy way to make your 'dribble' from helium turn into a 'stream' without writing anything extra. Remind me sometime by sending me an email from my profile and I will tell you how, its not really something to be shared on a public forum.

            If you want ryankett, I can write about your "Helium method", put it on my Blog, let my readers know the idea is yours, along with a link back to your site,

              Errr... I would, but my helium "method" isn't exactly the type of thing I can publish online... and if I did, it wouldn't be a method for any more than a week!

    Yes, good on you, and thanks for sharing. I understand what you are saying. You can make money online and that is good.

    I believe one of the best ways to make money online is with your own blog. Long term anyway. I too have made over $1000 online. Now my goal is to make $10,000 online,

    Wish me luck!

    Good luck to you.  smile   My goal for online dabblings is to make at least a thousand dollars a month in one place.  I can see that happening on HubPages if I played my cards right (but I'm not playing my cards right, I have other things that require my attention  lol  )

    Yes! It is possible but it takes time in the beginning, lots of time.

    I own 8 different websites, which are earning just over $40 a day now, and 10 more sites that are waiting for me to develop.  I've started them over the past 6 months and I expect that to continue to rise as I continue to add more sites to my portfolio.  On top of that I earned just over $4000 from Ebay, this year alone.  I usually average around $6000 a year from Ebay.

    You cannot expect to just write for one site and hope to make that kind of return. Besides, it would be crazy to "put all your eggs in one basket."  I don't expect HP to go anywhere soon but that doesn't mean it's unlikely to get into a pissing contest on the forums and get banned from the site. 

    I'm sure you have heard of multiple streams of income before, so spread your horizons.

      Hey livewithrichard,

      this is really inspiring stuff!

      Thanks, I wish you even more success,
      all the best to you, and keep going,

      You are a good example of making money online.
      I like it!

    I wish our hubs was open to the real world.I am sure we would all make money.Get rid of greed and welcome the real money and competion.

      Pardon?  They are open to the real world.  That's how I make money.

      I'm not sure what you thought you signed up to, but my hubs are there for the world to see.

        I'm not really sure what greed you're talking about.  I have no greed.  I don't think HubPages is hoarding secret stashes of Hubs and not publishing them.   If there's competition or no competition - I don't care.  As for "real" money, I wouldn't call what I earn "real" money at this point.  hmm

        This is kind of a contradiction in Terms, you want to make more Money Is that it? If so you are the Greedy one, No!
        Because the World is already able to see what you have written, it is what these Sites are about, Exposure, so you have it. How much depends on How good you are at Linking it and coming up with Stuff that people want.

    Yes, I've made over $1,000 from Hubpages.

    Not from Hubpages yet but its easy to make that much by other writing, assignments, especially as I also do the Illustrations as well..

    It takes time and yes multiple streams of income are very important.  I make much more than 1000 a month on the internet and hope to be full time internet within 3 years.

    It really is possible for the average person as long as you are willing to so what it takes

    I make enough money on the internet to have a comfortable lifestyle.  Hubpages are a good way to increase your adsense earnings a little and test out different niches.

    Most people don't make much money here because they don't write on profitable niches, don't do keyword research and don't actively promote their hubs.

    If it is just a hobby it doesn't matter too much, but if you want to earn serious money, you need to take it seriously like any other business.

    Yes, many times over, but not from Hubpages. Hubpages crank a few hundreds every month for me. But I am not too active in money making sense here, so $1000 or even more is absolutely realistic goal here, as long as you do not expect this to happen overnight. smile
