    Can some of the experience Hubbers give a ballpark figure of how much you are making with Google Ads
       Please give us your experience with this.

      Before you get your first Google check you have to do a lot of work. Not really hard work but doing almost the same thing everyday  and these are
      Quality Researched Hubs
      Promote your Hubs
      Interact with HP Community
      Keep on Writing

      Do this for 15months and you would give a ballpark figure of how much to expect from Google

      Your income at hubpages is directly related to your output. If you work hard at making good, quality hubs and research your keywords well, then there is no reason you can't hit $100 or more a month. However, don't expect that amount until you have been around for at least a year. smile

    I don't think people like to discuss their earnings.

    I dont mind discussing, but my earnings wont reflect your earnings, nor the next hubbers! (less than 6 figures more than 3)

    Each persons returns are different based on their luck, research, topics, quality, marketing, optimization and output.

    I would answer i more detail but you havent bothered to upload a photo yet, so Im not sure i can spare the time yet,

    This topic is very, very well covered in teh forums and in hubs

    The search box and google are your very best friends

    Depends on many things. My HP income fluctuates between 10 and 20 bucks a day, and I could relatively easy make it many times more if I decided to do so. I don't, I earn in other places, and just prefer to hang out here. smile

    I pay my rent with my HubPages earnings.  Granted my rent is probably less than most people's, but that was my goal and I got there.

    It really depends on each Hub, on what people are searching for, and on whether someone uses keyword, good titles, etc.  That's why nobody can really give anyone else even a ballpark figure.  Everyone's earnings are really different, and even the same person's earning can vary.  The advice you've probably seen about "useful, well written" Hubs is correct.  Those earn more than "what-I-feel-like-saying" Hubs (but they can earn too if they have time, if you have a lot of them, and if your score isn't really low).

    The only earnings that matter are your own. You are only at the beginning of a long journey if you decide to stick with it.
    There have been lots of hubs about earning. Read them and decide which bits of advice apply best to your situation. Put in a little effort, then decide if it is something that works for you.
    It may take more time and work than you are willing to give, if your primary goal is earning a lot, right away.

        Sorry couldn't resist...but being serious now!

        Aiming for a realistic figure, just like Relache said, she pays her rent with her earnings, so aim small and write good stuff that only you could write and build on what you write so that you can call yourself a knowledgable writer about your subject and then filter out through all the other sub topics if you can be bothered.

        I've aimed for $10 a day just to start and I'm at $8 a day with hubpages through adsense, but possible more with Ebay and Amazon combined...so set yourself some goals and aim to reach them in a realistic manner!!

    The main thing to remember is that it takes time.  Unless you're already well versed in writing for the internet, or are willing to do a lot of research immediately, don't expect to earn more than a few dollars in your first few months.  Earnings are only a trickle to begin with, but they improve over time.  Patience is a virtue on HP.

    For me it was to reach a monthly payout.  Took me 9 months (got it in the 10th) to get the first.  Two months to get the second and now I get I'm getting it monthly.  smile  The rest is gravy.

      I've been posting 6 months and seem to be tracking the KCC Big Country model, the key is the views continue to increase even on days I don't publish (I've just checked this over the last few days) So patience my friend, and keep on plugging away! smile

    Have just start writing hubs again and this thread has actually motivated me to write more. I also agree that if your hubs have good quality content and are unique you will do very well.

    Good luck to everyone with their hubs.smile

    Its an innocent question but its like asking a business man how long it would take you to make his earnings whithout knowing anything about the business!

    I make up to $600/month with Adsense  - quite a lot of from HP - but Idont' bother distingusihing anymore because hubpages is just a small part of the picture. I've been doing this for 2 years - full-tme this year.

          I probably should have worded  question differently. Honestly I was just looking for a few real life success stories without all the selling of systems and hype from the supposed gazillionaires.

        You should have search the forum too. Many hubbers willing tell us all how they make the amount they got right now and how long it took them to reach their levels!sad

    I'm another full-timer and a significant part of my earnings comes from Hubpages. So it is well worth doing. If you check my profile, I link to some of the hubs I've written to help other hubbers. It does take awhile to get to this point (I've been here over 2 years now), but if you put work into it, you can achieve a lot.

    Thanks for all the motivation smile I'm still at the stage where I celebrate every adsense click - so I certainly can't afford rent let alone a private jet!   However I think my goal is to cover the interest on my student loans.. plus some of the principle (have to pay it down somehow!)   I'm in a highly motivated frame of mind with HubPages right now - hopefully I'll meet my goal some day!

    I came beack to Hubpages around 8 months ago now, and my earnings so far this month are around $200 on adsemse, but %600 on Amazon, the other advertisers are giving me negligible earnings at the moment.

    As previously stated though, earnings are based on a huge amount of factors.  It is up to you to optimize your work to make the most out of it!

  23. ForTheInterim profile image76
    ForTheInterimposted 6 years ago

    Yeah there are so many factors ... I am aware of that. Right now I'm trying to go through old hubs, see if I can liven them up.  I don't solely write for revenue though, so it's not too disappointing, but I'd like to do what I can to maximize the potential of what I've already written.  It's all a good learning experience!

  24. Blake Flannery profile image90
    Blake Flanneryposted 6 years ago

    I came up with a formula for new hubbers to figure what their future earnings potential could be: (M X 12) X [(T X 12/N)/12] = E
    You'll have to find the hub to check it out.  It's titled, "Google AdSense Earnings: Estimate Your Potential Earnings."  It'll also give you an idea of how much I make, which is constantly growing.  For the past few months, my earnings growth has followed my formula's  predictions.  I would love to know if it works for others.
