Yes, but possibly limiting with experience and knowledge. I researched this year that. I surveyed using Excel and info at Profiles. My goal was 100 for a sample set. (I was bored not working any longer while as a career was research and data analysis).

Said in the forums maybe rumor? is some receive generated income enough to pay rent. Me, I hope a payout ($50) twice a year as my goal for next year. This year is my focus is 'starting anew' being here 4 years by examining those with success. My hope is by reading their Hubs and listening carefully I will learn. I focus more today reading questions Here toward that goal. I listen in the Forums too. (BTW thank you for helping me to achieve that goal today in the fourms :-) Also, is learning to write Better Hubs aimed at those goals.

My view is as residual-passive income there is a definite trend it occurs time related. It may not be as quick to achieve views today with all the changes by Google. Their focus today begins with content itself followed by social marketing then SEO principals and techniques. That has affected HP with its newer focus in recent years since about 2012. They do seek our success IMHO with the site structure at HP beginning with the FAQ & Learning Center firstly.
