So, who is making money off hubpages? how long did it take you? Is it gas money, more or less?
At first I was trying to "make it" 'round here strictly via Google AdSense but after gettin' diddly-squat out of that from two years of Hubbing I wised up and signed up for the HubPages Ad Program at the end of 2013. Since then I think I've gotten payouts twice a year, which is small potatoes but I'm fine with that. I have no illusions about becoming a literary rock star zillionaire with the kind of nonsense I write about.
I don't depend on it as a steady income stream, just as an occasional "treat."
I have pretty much given up on ever seeing an AdSense payment cuz glaciers move faster than my totals there.
Pennies. I joined a different site and am making about $100 every 3 to 4 months
Many people are getting paid, however many of those getting paid often aren't going to say anything for fear of being plagiarized and I don't blame them.
Some are making car payment type money while some are making gas money. There is money to be made, but it takes time, patience, and a willingness to put in an effort.
There are many on hp who complain money can't be made, but 10 minutes looking into their articles and you see much of it is copy and paste from other articles on the web. Even if the person making these articles is the same person, google still will not appreciate the copy and paste articles, no matter how nice they look.
My point? Write original content, research what you are writing to ensure people are actually looking for it, and give it time. Depending on your article types you may make pennies, gas money, car payments, or if you are super lucky house payments.
It took nine months to get first payout. Payout steadily increased over time in frequency but I have yet to reach monthly payout consistently. When I do receive payout, it is gas money. I don't depend on it but it is nice when it comes.

I'm new to HubPages, so give me a break if this is a terrible question. I nearly have 40 followers, and I have posted 15 hubs in 5-6 weeks. When do you start making the big bucks?

Who is making money off ads on my hubs if I don't have an adsense account?Adsense hasn't approved me yet, but there are google ads on my hubs. If they don't think my site is worthy enough to approve my application, then why are they advertising on my hubs, and who is getting the money?
