    How many Hubs are needed to produce some kind of income?

    Of the people here at Hubpages who actually make money, what are the average number of Hubs they have?

    It depends on various factors. Some Hubbers make a lot of money with just 100-150 Hubs, others get same amount for 900-1000 Hubs.

    Duffsmom  a good question.. I've been here a year  posted 250 hubs  have over 7000 views and I haven't made one red cent  LOL..  funny because Triond.. same number of views and postings and I made over a hundred dollars..  but  at least here the quality of the writing is so much better than Triond..  but the money is better there go figure..great question though

    It depends on the topic you choose, the content quality, and your frequency of writing.

    Franik, have you got all your ad programs turned on? I have only made a few dollars with about 1000 views, but with 7000 views then you should have at least made something even if only for hubpages ad program as you get paid per view.

    since I personally don't know anyone who have actually made the kind of money that some people claimed they have made writing hubs, it's hard for me to say what's the average number of hubs needed to make money. However, I am currently in the process of testing the opportunity cost of hub writing! Hopefully within the next few months I should be able to form my own judgement.

    I made money on the first day I joined.  I published nine hubs that day, and think that had something to do with it.  I don't think it has to do with quantity, but rather, quality.  You can have one hub that gets thousands of views each day and that is enough to earn.

    200-300 good, QUALITY hubs.  From hub-hopping I've noticed that 90% of the hubs out there are complete "crud."  If you don't give a damn to make an effort, nobody else will gave a damn to read your stuff.  Just sayin'.

    Depend on the topics which attracts visitors, as well as number of post. Use this formula
    visitors = income, the more visitors the more the income.

    I think that it depends on many factors: topic and keywords chosen, quality of hubs, writing style and etc. I have 10 hubs published over 1 on Hubpages and made some $. Honestly, it is cents, but the first aim of my writing is not money. I write to improve my English. I am not able to provide such as good hub quality as people whose mother-tongue is English, so I do not expect great earnings here.
    My advice would be: have fun firstly and only then think about money. If you feel that you like writing, your topics become more interesting and you will attract more visitors. More visitors will generate you more earning. Good luck.

    I'm not sure but that is a good question and I am hoping to achieve that goal of making money from my Hubpages someday. I hope that we both find a GREAT Answer so that we can learn more.

    I currently have 125 hubs and produce about $125 from those hubs. That revenue comes from hub ad program, Amazon, Adsense, and other affiliate programs like Clickbank and Shareasale. That income is rising as I gain more followers and get more visits. I also make money at Squidoo and at Blogger in addition to that $125. I think the key is to just plod on and continue making hubs, getting followers and becoming an active member of the community.

    Ditto on the other responses to this question. There isn't really a set number of hubs that you need to write. The amount of money you make really depends on the topic, traffic to the hub, and the number of people that click on the ads. If you write good quality hubs and make an effort to promote them then you'll get some decent traffic.

    Its all about quality and good seo tactics. Consider popular search topics like money and business. Those get more views and attract more  money from advertisers.

    It depends on what kind of income you want.  You can start making pennies with just one quality hub.  For more money, you need to produce a large portfolio of quality hubs.

    for advice from the most successful hubbers here.

    I don’t think quantity matters, it’s all about your subject (Topic), how much interesting plus useful it is and information. If your hub has these things you will be able to earn, of course more hubs means more money, but a hot topic can work similarly for you.

    My general rule is create as much as possible.  The more you make the more likely you will have some income.  My goal is to have 1000 hubs in the next couple months.

    I would say about 500 hub pages. Also it depends the quality and traffic. This is a very good question.

    you should at least have about 100 hubs. some might say that having few hubs of excellent quality can be considered a replacement but the more activity you do the more you are followed and similarly large number of hubs increases the probability of getting more views and comments also as they will of different categories too.

    22 after 2 months will net you $20 if your name is "napetv."

    So they must have 100 minimum.

    It's more about quality than it is quantity...

    You can get some income with only one very good hub.
