Question for old timers, how much revenue have you gotten?

    So I've got a few hubs up and really just started here on hubpages. But the impressions that I get on hubpages, vs my google adsense doesn't quite make sense. I understand they take 60% of the impressions, but I was just curious. Those of you with over 100 posts and using google adsense are you seeing any major benefit? I'm not looking for outrageous amounts, but would like to make about $10 a month if possible if I ever get to that number of hubs (100+).

      Actually - they take 40% of the impressions. I make money with google adsense - as do plenty of other people. Paul Deeds mentioned the average is between $2-5 per 1000 page impressions so that should give you an idea of how many page impressions you need to reach your target. I did write a hub about it recently as there seems a lot of confusion:

        I thought ebay wasn't taking huppages accounts anymore?

            I was refused a few times. You cant use hubpages in order to get an ebay merchant account, you will need another website. You can use ebay on hubpages, but the account needs to be linked elsewhere.

      You will get to 100 in no time, and the possibility of earning much more than that ($10), is very high. smile

      Just don't give up! smile

      I took a look, and your topics are pretty profitable. I have found that it help a ton if you stop focusing on your earnings so much and just continue to pump out quality useful content.

      I remember the days I used to check my adsense earnings about 12 times a day lol

      Currently I am getting about $8 a day from the combination of Google, eBay, Amazon and Kontera - I have a few world cup hubs so I expect this to go down after July - but before June I was getting about $4 to $5 a day! It has slowly increased over time and as my traffic increases so does my revenue!

      I definitely earn more than $10 a month from my hubs. Last month I earned over $50.

    Ddraig, I would look at total page views instead of total number of hubs.  You may find it worth your while to increase traffic to a fewer number of hubs.  I saw one member with around 20 hubs making a good deal of income.  Both options work, but you may want to look the pro's and con's of both strategies.

    The number of Hubs published isn't necessarily tied to earnings.  It's quality, not quantity, that gets the job done.  There are Hub authors who have only a few dozen Hubs who earn extremely well, and some who have a few hundred Hubs who are still wondering why they aren't making a dime.

    For most site users, having a larger body of Hubs does work better but there's no set number which someone can reach and guarantee any sort of earnings.

    Great thanks for the tips and ideas. I need to look at figuring out ways to increase people visiting my current hubs. I plan on writing about various topics but mostly general technology tips. So it is obviously somewhat specialized.

    I have 130 hubs and I've made $100 via Adsense in 3 months. I expected more, but my hubs are all evergreen so money will trickle in over the next few years. Revenue this month has been very poor.

    Amazon is a flop - 3 sales so far of less than $5 total.

    I've made another $100 or so from affiliate marketing of my own products. This looks promising.

      Let us know how your evergreen hubs perform for you. It would be interesting to hear more on this topic in terms of revenue.

    YOu can earn a lot with Hubpages, and remember that Adsense is not the only revenue stream on here, both Amazon and eBay can also be powerful earners, you might also earn a little from Kontera too.

      How does one get connected to ebay?

        I joined ebay years ago, I signed up through one of my own domains.

    My impression is that the money you make, especially from Adsense, depends on the topic.  For example, just from my experience, loans and financial hubs can make well over $1 per click.  But in entertainment, I've seen 10+ clicks totaling less than $0.50.

    However, entertainment seems to be easier to rank for in the search engine.  So your mileage may vary.

    Before I worked for HubPages, I wrote about 15 hubs a month.  By my 5th month, I was making $10 a day from AdSense.  So I think your goal of $10/day on 100 hubs is completely reasonable, if you choose your topics well and don't skimp on writing quality content.  Go for it!

    That goal is definitely possible at Hubpages. I've tried other similar sites, such as Squidoo, but for me at least, Hubpages is the winner as far as revenue.

    Don't get discouraged. Sometimes hubs that attract virtually no traffic initially will really start picking up after a few months, even if you do nothing to promote them.

    In June I earned well over $100 from my hubs and I don't even have 50 so $10/month from 100 hubs is definitely achievable!

    I agree with Relache. You can't just slap anything up in a hub and expect it to work for you.

    I've got just over 30 hubs that make me a bare minimum of $60 to $75/month between Amazon and AdSense in my slowest months. My peak months bring in a couple of hundred. And those earnings have been consistent for quite some time. Just put a little thought into your work and you'll surpass that $10/month in no time.
