Why do Some Hubbers Depend Only on Hubpages For Adsense?

    I been with hubpages for about 4 months now, and I been monitoring my adsense earnings with hubpages everyday although with over 100 hubs I have made some money with adsense,If I was depending only on hubpages I would probably be taking about 5 months to reach the $100 payout, but because I use my own methods with adsense I'm able to surpassed the minumum payout every month without a problem..

    I been reading around the forums and dont understand if some hubbers want to make money with adsense why do they only stick with hubpages for their earnings and try different stuff.

    I understand I'm fairly new to hubpages so I really dont know how it works
    I guess my point is should I put all my effort on hubpages for adsense or should I also do other stuff at the same time?

      Both, but just so long as you put forward you best effort.
      Welcome to Hubpages and Im sure you will learn quickly.
      I am no expert myself and most of us are learning everyday.
      Even the experts or should I say the more senior members dont always agree on method of application.
      But so many have written several hubs on earning potential with HB (some advice would apply to other ventues as well)

      Just use the search button or read other Hubs ,which  is on your account page.

      Good Luck!

      It really depends what your goals are.  HubPages is great because in my opinion, it gives the best return for the least effort.  I do have other monetized sites but they take a lot more work than HubPages. 

      So if you're just doing this as a hobby, HubPages is the best no-stress way to do it.  If you're serious about making money online, you need to diversify - don't rely 100% on any one income stream.  However, I recommend hanging around HubPages for another month or two while you continue to learn what works and what doesn't.

    Not everyone depends just on hubpages - some people here though are not here just to get clicks - but - more to write and have a good time

    Hubpages is great for writing, at the same time if you write well and about interesting arguments you might get clicks and money. I personally get a check every 2 months but thanks to my blogs and not to Hubpages.

    I'm sure hubpages is enough for some people.  If you take somebody who doesn't have much time and no inclination to learn any technical skills, then simply writing a hub every now and then is a great way for them to jot down things they're interested in and get a few $$s here and there. 

    There's no commitment, no real "effort", no upgrades or things to check/install or pay for, like you get when you have a domain or use other ways.

    If  you only have 1-2 hours/day spare to yourself, hubpages provides a great outlet.  I'm sure that a lot will start to explore other ways to use adsense once they find their feet, but for some it's just "beer money" and a little bit of fun.

    The only hesitation I'd have is putting all my eggs in one basket.  As it's not something you own, you have no control over changes in policy, or ownership, in the future.  What if hubpages sold out and stopped using adsense at all, anybody who had put a lot of effort in over time, who was relying on it, would be up sh1t creek without a paddle.

    If it weren't for that uncertainty I'd recommend to a lot of people that they only did hubpages because it'd suit their lack of time/commitment and desire to learn new things.

    I agree with Marissa, while a blog is better to be specific to one niche, in hubpages you can post about anything and without worrying about sending it search engine, editing codes or anything, and also, for good page rank
