    How much work does it take before a person receives enough points to get paid with hub pages.?

    I've been with Hub pages for 5 months now.  I have over 30 hubs.  I comment on other peoples hubs nearly every day, ask questions, answer questions and the most I've made in a month so far is $ 0.69.  What is the minimal amount of hubs one must write and comments one must make in order to start making money?  How many hours a day am I expected to spend to succeed with hub pages?

    I believe it's how many people read your hubs that have advertisment on it.. I even think you get more money if the ads get clicked on..  share your hubs with  Facebook..  Tweets,  Stumble upon and Pingomatic that will help generate views..

    You are already making money, $0.69 so far isn't really bad since you are not even remotely aware you are on your progress part, my advice is for you to put your house in other, by that i mean take this business serious, do a research on topics that attract favorable and high traffic, let your work be of good quality and the rest will be a testimony i promise you.

    There really isn't a concrete answer for this! You could write one hub on a niche that just happens to have the right keywords to elevate to number one spot on Google and end up with 10,000 views a day - this would raise your revenue substantially.

    What you should do is look at the subjects you write on and really investigate whether they are popular and whether you are likely to get views. If you're writing is all about the life of the common worm then you're unlikely to get a huge amount of views.

    However, if you come up with a very unique (but searched for) article on Justin Bieber then you'll get lots of views.

    Take time to read some of the hubs by the top earners on here (and the top hubbers - not everyone is here for the money) and see what they write about and how they write...

    I note that it took me 8-10 months to see anything more than a few dollars - I hit on a niche about a year ago that pulled in thousands of visits and still pulls in hundreds today - I was lucky - but I also realized there was a niche that was under-developed.

    I've been with hub pages for only 2 months and so far I'm in the same boat.  Staying in the $0.70 range a month.  From everything I have read though it all depends on how many people click on the sponsored links or make purchases from those links that are within your hubs.  It also depends on the topics of your hubs.  If you write about something no one really cares about you aren't going to get many hits.  I guess a big one is celebritys but I don't know how to write about that topic much.  Hope this information helped a little.  Let me know if you find a secret to writing!  Good luck!

    Leaving comments on other people's hubs nearly every day, asking questions and answering questions improves your HubPages Score and that have got nothing to do with increasing revenue.

    To increase your revenue out of HubPages simply write more informative and interesting articles, no matter how much time you spend in here and how many you can write, the articles should be interesting and 'informative'. Most important, make sure you get more traffic from different search engines for your articles by various techniques like using appropriate keywords, etc.

    I checked out one of your hubs, your Ohio Amish Country piece.  A better title might be Autumn Travel in Ohio Amish Country.  "Fall Road Trip" is hardly ever typed in for searches.

    If you want your piece to focus on Ohio Amish Country rather than the act of traveling said lands, you could change the title around to "Ohio Amish Country:  Autumn Travel

    Whichever you use, make sure you mention the title keywords in your article.  If your focus is Ohio Amish Country, you need to have the words Ohio Amish country in a few places through your article.

    The title of your cheese factory sign dips into another keyword, amish cheese.  There would be an opportunity to try and gain views with a section of this article devoted to the amish cheese you discovered.  It would have to be keyworded with a nice article subtitle:  Amish Cheese:  Middlefield Ohio Amish Cheese.  The section devoted to amish cheese also needs to be substantial.  Either that, or write a separate sales hub devoted to amish cheese, and use your travel experience to give it a unique feel.

    If you do that, you could put in an amazon capsule next to that part of the article and offer two or three varieties of amish cheese, or even middlefield cheese (best).

    Think about keywords you can use in titles, and throughout your articles, that will catch a searchers attention.  If your content satisfies what the searcher typed in, your chances of making money off your articles will be seriously enhanced.

    Titles, subtitles, headers, and images all can be named with your major keyword or lesser keywords in mind.  Doing so is helpful for Google - it helps it to understand that, okay, this is an article about traveling in Amish country.

    Hint:  Google ads for furniture and cheese, rather than Amish furniture or Amish cheese, are a good indicator that your article needs more clarity.  Google needs to see Amish cheese more than cheese.

    You don't earn from collecting points.  Nor can you say it's from X amount of Hubs or X amount of hours worked.

    Earnings come from having lots of traffic and many visitors who click on advertisements or buy products from your Hubs.  How many Hubs it takes to get a viable stream going or how much effort that requires varies from person to person.

    It took me two years and about 100 Hubs to start seeing what I considered "decent" or "real" money.

    I'm counting on making real money after publishing a couple hundred hubs.  That said though if you publish quality material and are active on hubpages, your readership will increase.  I've only published a few more hubs than you and am making Way more money.  Work on quality and work on networking!
