    Despite the ups and downs of Google, last month I managed to reach US $100, my highest earnings so far. How are you faring? I just want to encourage the new hubbers and tell them HP pays and it is for real.

            I don't think you're really one to tell other people off about their logic, Sockie.

            Besides, isn't purposely driving threads off topic against the rules? With all the accounts you've created, I would hope that you've read the forum rules at least once....

            If you're going to ask for screen shots and then fling mud at them, then you're just a hapless conspiracy theorist who can't be taken seriously.

            The problem with conspiracy theories is that they aren't falsifiable. If any evidence exists to the contrary or evidence is missing, it's just "Part of the conspiracy!"

            You're never, ever going to be satisfied, so what's the point? Honestly, what is driving you to hang around Hubpages ranting about your displeasure and then ignoring all evidence? Are you TRYING to make yourself look like an obsessed loon?

              What's funny is harping on the idea that every person who has ever made money on HubPages is some type of internal PR plant stoking false hope amongst the plebes. Honestly, I used to earn a lot more than 100 bucks a month on HP before the crash a year ago. I was almost paying my entire rent every month with money from adsense and Amazon. Nowadays, 100 is a good month.

              If you want to challenge HubPage's earning potential, you should be skeptical that 100 is acceptable payout for our effort, not that the relatively small sum is a lie.

                More than 100 dollars? Lies! Slander! How much did they pay you to say that? There's no money here-- stop lying to yourself. Do you know who I am? Your logic has run out. Not everyone is your friend, boy.

                I'm working on my Sockpuppet impression. I think I'm getting pretty good. I still have to draw heavily from his quotes ("Not everyone is your friend", for example), but I'm hoping that eventually I can come up with my own inane phrases.

      Well, HubPages do manipulate the people with their advertisements. HubPages claims that people get thousands of dollars every month, and they have set their photo in the frontpage. The the usual covies (or covens) would tell you otherwise.

      http://hubpages.com/success/

      I had no idea that what I read in the front page was partial. Take this frontpage entry for example, it reads -

      "Kathryn Vercillo
      earns $1,500 a month writing on things that truly interest her"

      Reading that one may assume that Kathryn has been getting $1,500 every month since she joined this website. Those who read more carefully, they may reach the conclusion that she gets around 1500 dollars each month, and not exactly 1500. Now go to the link that I gave above. There it reads quite different-

      "Average passive monthly earnings: $1,500 as of 10/12/2011"

      The word 'average' is missing in the frontpage entry, and those who join this website read that entry, and not the link that you read above, and that word 'average' makes a huge difference. She joined this website 5 years ago. It might be as well that she started earning money after two years, more maybe, since the date that she joined this website. We don't get that reality while we read about those featured members, in the frontpage.

    Could you be more specific as to your methods of promoting your Hubs, and choosing the correct advertisements? My earnings are dollars and cents.

      Patkayposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      kathleenkat, I do not have any special formula but just keep on trying things out. What I have realized is with more than 1500 views am averaging to US $ 3 per day. I am not good at SEO. Mostly apart from adding new hubs regularly, I edit the old ones, refining titles and tags, checking the flow of grammar and spelling. Promoting is through Facebook, Twitter and Pin interest.

      Hi there Kathleenkat,

      There are ways to make it happen here on Hubpages in terms of receiving much more traffic, but your going to need to have true focus, and drive to learn them.

      Visit the Hubpages learning center (Learn all you can from using it), look for the 'Getting Traffic' section, and especially read up thoroughly on the 'Elements of a Stellar Hub' link. (Link provided below)

      If you truly learn to apply much of the useful tips, and relevant hubpages information provided in the Learning Center, you will begin to realize all of your potential mistakes made as a hubber, and also start to see the light, of potentially becoming a powerful force here in terms of attracting massive viewers world wide to your hub account, and with each and every hub you decide to publish. "Good Luck"

      There's also many hubbers who've gone out of their way to help fellow hubbers, to learn how to make writing efforts, and sharing efforts in the hubpages community and else where as well truly work for them.

    I have not made 100 in a month yet, but it is my next goal.  I think I would need about 200 hubs to do that at my current traffic levels.

    1. Patkay profile image85
      Patkayposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      psycheskinner, it is not a myth, you can make it. You are at 126 hubs, I am aiming for 100 hubs before my 2nd birthday of course at HP.

    2. CloudExplorer profile image79
      CloudExplorerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      I looked at you profile psycheskinner, your stats shows a low level of sharing factors, meaning comments made, etc......

      So maybe if you work on increase those factors and elements, you can have others help you achieve such a goal here on hubpages, all it takes is a bit of communicating when you can, and effectively from others hubs, as well as answering questions, that counts for a great deal of us fellow hubbers finding that you indeed exist on the network here.

      Insightful commenting signals many hubbers to render back communications to you, and so eventually you shall draw a true following, which in return may render you more social rep her on hubpages, which in fact equates to even more potential sharing factors, and you won't be doing this thing alone for the most part.

      That's not to take away from all that you have done here thus far, its just to help you get a better idea of why, and the tendency to have much lower results besides a hubs overall potential to attract users on its own due to its overall quality.

      Either way Good Luck! I do a great deal of networking today, and so this is where I pretty much major in, day in and day out. I hope this message helps, rather then it be taken in the wrong way, because online potential truly is a timeless thing today, and it more about how you choose to interact with others pretty much.

    Just a word to the wise, quantity is only as good as the quality. You can write a million hubs if you want to but that doesnt mean you'll make any money. Each hub needs to have thought put into it. If you have been here for over a year without making payout, then you need to go look at the ones that are making payout and see what they could be doing that you're not doing.

  9. psycheskinner profile image79
    psycheskinnerposted 5 years ago

    Well, quantity multiples quality.  If you know how well your average hub does, you can--in my experience--just scale that up by making more.  If your average hub sucks.... well.

    1. isenhower33 profile image79
      isenhower33posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Hubscore will go up and down regardless, if people just put random stuff on here without checking quality it wont do them any good. Doesn't matter if it starts out at a hubscore of 80 if the quality isn't there then you wont get as many views. Its more about how well you can market it and how good the product is when it comes to making the money you want to make.

      1. psycheskinner profile image79

  13. Rushdie profile image60
    Rushdieposted 5 years ago

    There no certainty that if someone writes a couple of hubs and wait for a few months, then I would have my own comparative data.

    If one follows this link - http://hubpages.com/success/ , then it becomes very clear that even for those who earn like average 1500 dollars per month, it might have taken years to reach the stage when they started getting their first pennies through this program.

    It might be as well that anyone who just throws himself into this website without mature deliberation, will repent later for the loss of time and energy of years.

    There are some cheerleaders here who are professional in persuading new people. You have no evidence to back up your claims. Try better.
