    How long does it take before I am making money with Hubpages?

    I know I have only been writing for four days but I have almost nine hubs that are of great quality for everyone. please help me get an idea of how long it will take.

    I would like to know this as well. I have my own websites that are successfully making money and have noticed a few clicks from hubpages but would like to hear from people who have a decent amount of pages in a variety of niches.

    Patience is the key. I have published 7 Hubs in all under two profiles and adsense pennies have started trickling in. But one thing is for certain. Hubs that rank well on Google rake in the traffic and the clicks, while others, no matter how good, bring up the rear. Go for the front I say!

    Dorn -
    I'm a fan of HP, but if you are in a hurry to make money online, then you might want to use HP as a way to market other services, such as freelancing as a writer, web designer, etc.

    Leverage your HP for developing a portfolio to sell your skills on Elance, Guru, oDesk, GetaFreelancer, RentaCoder, etc.

    Also: you might want to check out Demand Studios, Suite 101 and Associated Content where you can get paid to write.

    Personally, I would hate to wait on ONE income stream - work 3 or 4.

    I made my first $100 online thru AdSense by self-hosted websites, within 2 months.  I get a regular check from Google now, and it grows the more sites I build.

    A website costs $8-10, plus $50 for a year of hosting (depending on who you use).  I only have 10 websites, but have made $2500 in my first six months online from them between Adsense and affiliate sales.

    The majority of my money comes from freelancing at Elance, I've made about $9k in that time so far, I'm only working part time.

    All that to say: HP is a great community, a wealth of information, it's FUN, but as a platform to make money, sharing 1/2 of your AdSense is a horrible model to "make money."

    HP has a great place as a supplement to other websites, to drive traffic to your other blogs/networks/websites/services...and to build experience and credibility.

    I just read a Hub where the guy was raving about making his first $100 from AdSense - WITH 70 HUBS! - in FIVE MONTHS. offense, but you could have used those articles and that content for 10 websites (like I have), and you could have made $2k - $3k in that same time...

    If you're in it to make money, you should really read:

    These are a few of my friends' blogs - we're making money online, not selling you anything but giving you a bigger picture of what you can have with some other monetization methods.  Hope that helps.

    For me I take a month in earning money from hubs or from a blog . This will come especially if you are a beginner. Take time and patience at first and later on you can earn monthly by that. Aside from hubs you can hub your blogs at then place google adsense so that you can earn from your ads in your blogs and other affilaites programs such as clickbank or amazon.

    Traffic is the answer to your question. The more traffic to your hubs, the more adsense clicks you can expect. It's not as much about time in the short term as it is about the volume of traffic you can drive to your hubs. The $ you make from Adsense has also to do with the $ amount associated with the ads on your hubs.
