I think hub pages success stories are a SHAM. Do you? It is the same people all the time. I
flannery, audet and a host of the same old same old......come on!!!!!!!!
I am not sure as I am new to all of this; however my fiancé has been a member for two years and has written 86 hubs, has a score of 87 and has 71 followers. He has earned a total of $35.00 which works out to be about £22.00 in the UK and as my dear old Nan used to say "that wouldn’t buy a fart!"
So who knows, maybe one day Hub Pages will make us lots of money, but in the meantime, its keeping us all entertained.
I have no reason to doubt the success stories, based on what I know I've earned myself here over the years. I've never earned the thousand-plus a month that some of the "success-stories" are, but I don't write the kind of commercially-focused/search-focused stuff they do. Even with that, up until the end of this last summer, I was earning my few hundred a month on here. (I'm not earning that now. Then again, I've trimmed out more than half of the Hubs I had before, trimmed out most images because I didn't want them on my Hubs for my own reasons, won't promote my Hubs, and won't go back to "tweak"/update any of them, and don't write on here regularly.) The point is, I know that I've hit $500 a month with only a few hundred, mostly "non-commercial"/non-SEO-minded" Hubs, and have at other times averaged $300-$500) I don't know who has deleted what, but some of those "success-story people" had over a thousand Hubs at one time. If a person can pick up a few hundred dollars a month with only a few "commercial-minded/SEO-minded" type Hubs, why wouldn't someone be able to pick up several times that with several times the number of Hubs....
One look at the forums (or a lot of other places), and it's easy to see that earning and getting traffic with Hubs isn't as easy these days (at least for now, and who knows for how long..). Whoever is earning well now is generally writing the kind of Hubs that are required in order to earn well, but they're also most likely writing enough Hubs to have even lower earners add up.
Who/what any user says s/he is, and whether that's real or not, is a-whole-nother thing; but whether - when you can see the Hubs under a user's profile - those users (the "success stories") are earning what they say or not (with the particular profile/user account they say they are earning it).... I just don't have any reason to question. Also, keep in mind that some people are primarily "Ad Sense Only", while some use a combination of both Ad Sense and the Amazon affiliates program for earning. A whole lot of people will tell you that Amazon is where they earn their best income on here.
There's nothing at my profile now that would earn me now what I was getting before deleting some of my better stuff; but the real point is that if a person can earn five or six hundred dollars a month with Ad Sense only and only a few hundred Hubs... why would it be so hard to imagine earning that much more with Amazon and tons of Hubs???

Are there any new Hub Page Success Stories out there?I have repeatedly read the success stories of the people profiled on the Hub Pages Success Stories page.They have been there for at least 1 year now. Just wondering if there are any new people making between $350 and $1,000 per month?

I am having a bad day - I've been ill for a week, son #2 has now been ill for a month, husband came home yesterday full of despair at not getting promotion and much needed pay rise. So this morning I gave myself my usual half-baked pep talk about my new 'career' online. Then came on HP for a...

Being a fairly new hubber and just getting adsense approval and looking forward to earning I re-visited the success story page and noticed that it is very outdated. All of the "stories" show as of October 2011...I am wondering why. Any thoughts?

I have been away from hubpages for over a year now and I was just browsing all my hubs and looking at all the new features available to improve my hubs, but before I dive in and redo all my Hubs I was wondering is Hubpages still a reliable source of income? Or is it dead and buried? Is anyone still...

This message isn't too attack, just question. I look at some of the articles by success stories writers and I find it hard to believe they are making that kind of money with what I see. Some of their work is modified recipes that can be found anywhere, some is poems and short...
