I am a somehow new on HubPages. So, I don't earn that much here yet. There is no rule of mentioning the exact earning, impressions we get from Google Adsense. (As mentioned in Terms of Services).
To make some on HubPages, you pic a profile picture, write content on a daily basis, and follow fellow hubbers. Also search for more hubs in this topic (Make Money on HubPages). Get inspired from - hubpages.com/succss
To get some quick money, you can search for some UpFront Payment sites. Perhaps, it would be a bit tough for newbies to get the jobs but atleast try for some.
For more info, feel free to visit the hub I created - https://hubpages.com/money/Make-Money-Writing-For-...
Maybe this is not the answer for the question you asked but this is the reality!
