How much does your 100 hubs bring you? Does quality + quantity go hand in hand?
from what I've read, 100 hubs seems to be the benchmark for getting a payout on hubpages. If your definition of quality is an article that makes money, then you could get a payout with one single article if it's on the right topic. This article would have to be about something that people buy online all the time, on impulse. Google ad-sense pays very well when someone clicks through to an advertiser's website. I made $2.09 for TWO clicks. If your definition of quality is an interesting, informative article that people will read beginning to end and share with their friends then the high amount of traffic you get will pay you from hubpages impressions program. It pays between two and three dollars per thousand people that read the article. That doesn't sound like a lot, but if you're getting ten thousand views a day then that adds up to about a hundred dollars a month. Pretty good for not having to register a single click. Depending on what you write about, you could make a lot of money through Google ad-sense. If you know a lot about old movies and can write thoughtful reviews that make someone want to buy a copy right that moment, then your articles are going to make more money than someone writing about their favorite 4th of July BBQ recipes. I'm new on hubpages but this is how I see it thus far. If I were you I'd continue writing about things you enjoy to stay sharp and interested. Every once in a while, try writing an article that you know will lead someone to buy something. Google ad-sense will take care of the rest.
you talked about impressions and that they also pay off. I am a bit confused about how it all works. Will Google pay for the impressions? Or do I need to sign up with hubpages ad program?
The amount of income that the hubs bring to me varies. There is a formula that is quite complicated regarding how traffic of advertisements leads to income. I write because I love to write and the income is a perk of doing something I enjoy. There is no way for me to know what I will make. Google is not supportive of members discussing exactly what they make off of our hubs. I hope it will suffice to say that it is not an income that I could live off of. Again - that is not why I write. I understand there are some who do make writing their livelihoods and make enough to do so. I am not among them.

If a hub dies in the forest, and no one is there to read it...The more, the better? I'm thinking about deleting any hubs with a score less than 80. However, I've read several hubbers who say that having 50+ hubs helps to maximize earnings here. I don't really care about the earnings, but I'm...

HubPages is still 100% friendly with Google - From every indications, this is all about the quality of what comes up top with Google search results; bringing down less useful content. Hardly do crapy or less informative hubs make it to top rankings with Google including HuBPages placement...

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

When I first started at HubPages, I wrote several Hubs of around 800 to 900 words. Now the goals for creating quality Hubs include 1250 or more words of content. I've noticed that some Hubbers seem to be padding their Hubs with irrelevant or superfluous content to hit these goals, and I admit it...

Is the growth sustainable? When I arrived 4 months ago, we had 400,000 hubs. What is it now, 500,000? Does this site really benefit from people writing almost identical hubs on the same topics?When somebody arrives they are told to write, write, write, write. 30 in 30 basically. I am being a little...
