    Sorry I am a little confused.  I recently set up my account but have not submitted any of my articles yet.  My question is are we paid only on the click throughs to the ebay and google affiliate programs?  I had seen one posting for "Freelance Bloggers" for HubPages and it states $25-$40 per article.  Maybe I read that wrong I am not sure.  I would be most greatful if someone could share with me how we are paid and how often.

    In addition, I would love to hear from anyone wanting to share what they make on average per month posting here on HubPages.  Just curious as to how much one could make if they work at it and submit 3-4 times per week.

      Where did you see this 'posting' about 'freelance bloggers'?

      The Flagship Hub and Capstone Hub programs are for Hub Authors who have track record of quality output.

      You can find out more about the Flagship program here and here. And the Capstone program here.

      But don't contact them yet without having a few, possibly a lot, of good hubs under your belt.

      I've been here 3 months and have almost made enough to pay a small pge bill, which I am actually quite happy for at this point. This is definitely a learn while you earn scenario, and the way I look at it is eventually I should have decent residual income coming in, but it will take time. In the meantime, I write as much as I can, and am learning alot about SEO and social networking.
      My next step is to get a couple decent websites up and running.

    You won't make any money until you write hubs, associate your adsense, amazon and ebay IDs with your account, and get some traffic in.

    Everything you need to know is in the FAQ.

    You get paid from Google Adsense, EPN, and Amazon Affiliates.

    The articles that you're speaking of are in reference to the Flagship Hub and Capstone Hub programs. If you're interested in one of the programs, you'll want to contact the Hub Team. They'll send you a contract.

      N.B. Whitney,
      I wanted to comment on ur hub regarding toothbrush..dogs..bur failed as the comment disappeared. Perhaps because it is alligned left. I, then wanted to send u a mail but no mail to... column was there. Then i tried to post a fan mail but there is no link found in the profile page. I had no otherway than to search u in forums and post it.
      A hub score of 53 appears in that hub?. mere53 for nicely written informative, text rich hub? Difficult to digest.
      something wrong with google.

        I understand the requirements for these programs, in the sense of needing hubs before being approved, but I was merely suggesting that she was referring to those programs and that she could email the HP team for more information.

        I'm not sure why you couldn't leave a comment, fanmail, or send me a message, but as for the score, the initial score tends to be fairly low in general. As I started and published the hub in one sitting, it's normal for the initial publication score to be in the 50s. If I had sat on it and worked on it over several days, the score may have been a little higher, as I've found that leaving hubs unpublished and working on them overtime tends to raise the score; I assume because of your own page views. Give the hub a few days and check the score again. ;-)

        Apart from the Search Engine traffic one might get from the likes of Google, Google doesn't have anything to do with HubScore.

          Haha I didn't even notice that jyoti was saying Google determined the HubScore. Funny...

          By the way Jyoti, that particular hub has been published for 4 days now and has a score of 73 and rising.

    Hi Jyoti ! Even I am wondering on this question. I saw a Hub with ONLY 5 Lines and had 5 Links to other USELESS sites and the Hubscore was 49 !!!!! IRONY !!!!!

      With a hub like that, I would flag it to get rid of it. Hub Team is doing a good job of that! When I started out, I was flagged several times until I got it.

    I've been flagged, too, vietnamese. It helped me learn to do better (well 'cept on some bad 'ranting' days lol). It takes basically one main thing to earn - DECENT content. That's what I've found, anyway.
