10 million views.... do you make a living from the Hub?
Obviously with that many views one would expect that you can live from these hubs, but is that true?
I know that some people can, but I have not made a dime, and I have signed up to Kontera Google Adsence, and I still am waiting for a check.
On places like hubpages and squidoo you'll generally find a few people who make a decent amount of money off them and a LOT who do not.
For me hubpages is only a sideshow, so I don't make much money out of it. However, my adsense check does pay my rent and my squidoo income covers most of my living expenses (that's including amazon sales and other affiliate income). That's mostly adsense from my own sites btw, not hubpages.
In general, if you want to make a living online, you should look beyond adsense and kontera, into affiliate programs. Start with amazon and ebay, since that's made easy by hubpages. But once you know what sells, you should definitely try targeted affiliate programs that sell just what you're generally selling. The percentage to take home is generally much larger than amazon gives.
Since linking out is such an issue on hubpages, I prefer squidoo for other affiliate programs.
I prefer squidoo also because it acts as an in between with amazon and ebay: as an international publisher getting money out of the states can be a hassle.

I've always been curious how many hubbers are in the elusive 10+ million views club and what/how long it took them to get there. Presumably those are some of the highest earning hubbers and are the pinnacle of Hubpages that we should be shooting for. So whose in this club and how did you get there?

This hubber has 10 million views and just 15 hubs. He or she doesn't even bother explainining who /he she/ is on profile page. Writes about stuff like iphones. Are we all missing a trick. Do you think this person could be making serious dosh?

It was a lot harder than I thought it ever would be getting to 10 million views. I also have a couple of Hubs approaching a million plus views each and I've now started to really take advantage of Pinterest. And I plan to get to 100 million views a lot faster than I got to 10 million. I've been...

When someone posts a hub like "How to be succesful on Hubpages" I look at their total page views accolade to see if they really are succesful. If that person has hundreds of hubs but only 1000 page views accolade, well....If that hubber has an accolade for 100,000, he may have 900,000...
