I've seen a read alot here about the bounces and traffic woes, just like many of you have. I've noticed a common thread though. The only people who make more than $.10 per day are those with ALOT of hubs, AND have been on HP between 1-3 years.

Only thing is Hubpages frown on such practises as backlinking, so be very careful what you do to not look spammy.

I am still pretty much on square one when it comes to backlinking.Other than facebook I have no other sites to really share my hubs on, which makes it hard. I think I'm going to make more hubs and figure out backlinking...

Curious if it is worth your time, I ran across info on it and didn't know if we could benefit from it.
