    Does anyone know how much Adsense revenue HubPages generates on a daily basis?

    If you don't know can you guess?

      I once estimated it with the amount of average visits per month and average earnings per 1000 impressions. Not in a mood to do this again rite now, maybe later. smile

    Well, based on what I make per day, on average, multiplied by the number of hubbers that are actively contributing...







    ... Not a heluvalot... hmm



    lol


    I guess its a good thing for HP that there are alot of hubbers out there doing a lot better monetarily than myself! big_smile

      IF the daily traffic views were accurate I would think the daily earnings is about half of what I would estimate

      lol

      Can't really say, I checked one of my sites and the estimate was close but less than what I make from it. big_smile

      Looks like you have decided to make a website like HubPages. I studied in a business subject that before starting a business, observe your competitors' investment, profit etc. Are you doing that? lol lol

      These type of traffic and earning estimates are inaccurate and just made for fun.

    hmmm...My earnings don't come daily. Still, I have managed to get some amount in my account since past few weeks. I am hoping it to grow more. Anyways, it is just like a piggy bank to me. So, I don't bother much about it. I love this place, the great information I read and learn here. Apart from that, I love to share whatever little i know about certain things!! smile smile

    They've got to make enough to afford the hosting and the staff, otherwise they would not have lasted so long...3 years old right?

    Just a thought but in the past it has occured to me that  -

    I do n't think we can work out what their forty percent of the time adsense earnings by looking at what our sixty percent  of the time adsense equals.

    What I mean is the adsense ads. change to often for ours and their earnings from them to be similar.

    I calculate that Hubpages makes $1 million a day

      ryankettposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Dont be silly.... 14 people in a modest office, grossing $365 million a year? LOL....

      If we estimate an eCPM of $5...... and assume 60 million page views per month (20 million uniques each month, say 3 page views each)....

      Take 40% of 60 million and you have 24 million.

      24 million / 1000 = 24000

      24000 x $5 = $120,000

      Annual gross Revenue = $1.44m

      Then add Kontera, eBay, Amazon.....

      I would estimate $2m - $3m per annum, give or take half a million....

      Not unrealistic for a relatively new business, which is growing rapidly.... And thats not the profit margin of course, thats before extortionate server costs, an office in San Francisco, and some very high calibre staff... I believe that I am right in saying that external private investors have been documented publicly (at least I think?!?) so then you have a big slice of profits going in that direction...

      That is 100% guesswork and hypothetical.... but your guess was just stupid.... its not Myspace, its Hubpages!..... my guess would be that Paul and James are onto something very lucrative.... but that its not quite time for them to retire to Vegas!

      I love Hubpages though.... and am happy to play a part in its continued growth!

        Using your calculations I am right...

        your numbers add up to $1 million a day (Canadian)

          Is that supposed to be a joke or are you just being a bit thick? No offence intended, but your estimate is about 100 times mine....

          And whilst mine is probably pretty conservative, yours is just silly....

          Just to refresh... I am claiming $3m per annum, I think in hindsight that maybe $5m would be more likely, possibly even $10m. You are claiming $365m per annum.

          Thats at least $355m difference.

              Yeah you can be both.

              I have reconsidered my estimate actually. Somebody once conducted a big survey which suggested the average annual earnings of a hubpage is $10 (for the hubbers). I actually dont know how to calculate the hubpages equivalent, my mind has gone blank, but lets say that hubpages will earn about $7 a hub per year from AdSense.

              There are currently 756,888 hubs. They would in this instance be expected to achieve an AdSense revenue of about $5.3m using this calculation.

              I have no idea how accurate that was.... I am earning a fair bit more than $10 per year per hub at current, but then there must be 50,000 sweaty indian armpit hubs.

              I guess that the only people who know are hubpages.... the more the better in my eyes though.... thats good for everybody.

    Interesting thread - I've wondered how they were doing too. I love the idea that Hubpages offices are across the Bay from me...maybe I should pay a visit some day! That would be fun!!

    Apparently hubpages had 90 million page views in January 2010.... so people can make their own estimates on the strength of that.

    I dont believe the average yearly income for a hub is $10.


    Considering most people claim 9 months just to reach first payout and hubs has only been around 4 years?

    How many actually stick around 9 months?

    How many are kicked out of the adsense program, are never accepted or never figure out how to set up their aff settings?

    Among article marketers who use adsense, I often see an estimation of 2.90 per month, per article after 3 months of aging. This estimation is for those who are familiar and capable with seo and adsense optimization. Around 27/ per year ...for all those who dont have those skills or motivations and the duds we all make .. 1/ year is probably not uncommon.

    I would bet that sitewide the percentage of ad impressions credited to hubpages is considerably higher than 60%


    just questions, not answers..

      I have to say that I earn a lot more than $10 per hub per year (at current earnings rate).

      I would put my earnings at around $2 per hub per month, although I imagine that I could just leave my hubs be and they will eventually earn $3+ each per month...

      Im just plucking numbers out of the air really, I 100% take your point about hubpages share of impressions.... not many would bother to delete all of their hubs after an AdSense ban....

      I would LOVE to know the average earnings per hub on this site, unfortunately that is an impossible task! Unless Analytics has a way of analysing income per page of content? Doubt it though.... Actually, Hubpages probably would be able to give a ballpark figure, based on a specific day or something, but a projection or forecast would be near-on impossible...

      All very hypothetical.... Your guess is as good as mine mate.... what would be your wild stab in the dark? $15m? $25m That seems a bit more realistic to me in hindsight....
