My Hubpages Income Report - How I Make Money From Hubpages

Updated on August 2, 2017

I've been intending to write my story but it never happened until today. I am compelled to do it now--as in right now-- because I just got my very first paycheck from Hubpages and I want to share it with you to inspire you to keep on writing.

I am so happy and proud of the fruit of my labor. I received $52.55 from Paypal and here is their email to me:


HubPages, Inc sent you $52.55 USD

Just thought you'd like to know HubPages, Inc sent you $52.55 USD.

Note from sender, HubPages, Inc:

Hi WAHmom, HubPages has issued you a HubPages Earnings Program payout of $52.55. Keep up the good work, and keep writing great Hubs!


Yes, writing great hubs. That money is my reward for writing great hubs.

Well, I didn't realize that I can actually make money writing articles on Hubpages until last Friday when I got this email from Paypal. Of course I would constantly monitor my earnings in my account but it's one thing to see the money growing and quite another to receive a notification that it is ready for withdrawal. Fantastic!

The figures shown on this table reflect the amounts I have earned from a total of 58 hubs. More great hubs mean more money from Hubpages.

How I started writing for Hubpages

I started writing for Hubpages in 2010. I didn't even know it exists. At that time, I remember I was applying to various employers for a writing job at oDesk. I got my first job as web researcher which lasted for only two weeks.

In October of the same year, I got an invitation for an interview with a nutritional company that was looking for product description writers. After doing several test wriiting I was hired. In addition to product description writing, my employer would ask me to write articles on various nutritional supplements that are being sold in his online store then distribute these articles to various sites and one of them was Hubpages.

I would do this for like 6 months then I registered to Hubpages under my own name..

My very first Amazon sale from Hubpages

I was surprised to see a sale made in Amazon. One of my readers purchased one item of nutritional supplement powder which earned me 8.24% commission. Imagine if I display more ads on my pages and readers click on them there's a big chance that I will make more sales which means more money.

    Thanks for sharing! I'm new here, but loving the idea that my hubs (which I enjoy at a fairly deep level) may generate some income eventually.

    Dear Cancerresearcher,

    I'm happy that my initial write up somehow inspires you to keep on writing until you receive your first paycheck. Good luck.

    I think once you get into a rhythm it seems to flow a little easier.. At least that's what I'm hoping! :D Thanks for writing a great hub by the way. It's really useful to hear how others are doing when you're a beginner like me.
