I'm seeing quite a bit more than just a few cents from mine, but the money is the only thing that allows me to stay here, so I make sure to make it :). In order to do well here you'll have to do your own marketing and have some understanding of SEO, otherwise you're just waiting for people off of Hubpages to accidentally find you. This really, really limits your market since most people already here are just reading for the sake of seeing what other people here are doing, whereas organic traffic from search engines are seeking your information for a particular purpose. I have quite a few pending hubs on this subject, but there are quite a few other long-time hubbers who have a lot of great information too. I haven't checked your hubs so I don't know what you've done so far or the type of writing you do, I know fiction doesn't tend to earn much of anything, but if you do informational articles or product reviews/showcases then a bit of keyword research and a few backlinks can go a long way.
