How many days/weeks after publishing do you start to get search engine traffic to your hubs?
It really depends on your keywords and content.
If you write in a saturated topic like acai berries or weight loss, chances are you might never get more than one or two search engine hits a month from search engines.
On the other hand if you write about something like purple striped tissue boxes chances are you won't get hits either, because no one is searching that topic!
If you carefully choose your keywords (you can do so through the Google Adwords free keyword tool), you can often start getting hits from search engines immediately.
I think it depends on the subject you've chosen.
I got immediate views for news-related articles, while ones specializing in other topics didn't do so well with Google. My television show-related hubs also started getting hits within days of being published. However, my Harry Potter articles took a couple weeks to even get a couple.
That could be because of keywords or it could be because certain topics just aren't terribly searched on Google and if they are, you've got to be better than the competition.
I'm told that smaller niches (going after less popular subject material) can gain good Google traffic in 3 months (average). Niches like mine (Dungeons and Dragons) can take up to 18 months.

How long does it take to make money with hubpages? After 160 views on 10 hubs they tell me I have 0 clicks. Is something wrong?

I noticed with me, I get a lot of my traffic later after 4 PM. I believe this may be because of time zones primarily, and a few other reasons. I live on the east coast so people in the west are in different time zones...
