I'm still lost. How do you make any serious money on hubpages? I have over 1200 views.
I think most of the impressions are based on 1,000 views per day. Don't quote me on that but at least per 1,000 views is what I've understood. I'm almost to 1,000 views and have only earned a little over $2
I have belonged to Hub Pages for fifteen months, and AdSense has been slowly (and I mean slowly) building up the princely sum almost £7.46. Then for no reason, although I earned almost £2 or more pounds a month, nothing was added.
Last month, however, they added the lot together and I had almost £27, which is still a pitiful amount, but I thought that within a couple of months they would be sending me my first cheque for £30.
Unfortunately, on Wednesday I was informed that the lot would be confiscated because I had "done something naughty". What it was, I have no idea, but I couldn't even get any help from them to discover what irregular thing I had done.
I appealed, but with offering no explanation they said that the ruling stood.
Be careful, my friend. Google and AdSense are as opaque as they can make themselves.
By the way, I have had 20,578 views altogether, so don't hold your breath.
catfish33, you have got to have at least 1/2 million viewers and over 2000 articles to get any serious money on Hubpages. That is why you got to have a passion for writing so the task will not be a chore and will be an enjoyable experience. Those are my stats and there are variations depending on the topics and the internet traffic the articles attract.
One of my Hubs has over 2,100 views and after publishing 58 hubs have received over 10,000 views but haven't made a penny, so you have a ways to go. However I have only been doing this for 5 months.
The threshold for making money is to earn 50.00 dollars, I'm at a little over thirty dollars so have not climbed past the earning level, yet.
To make any serious money, in my opinion, one would have to publish at least 500 hubs and at least rise to the One Hundred thousand (100,000) view level.
Those that do earn good money are over 500 hubs and over 500,000 views, so we both have a ways to go yet.
Considering the millions of people that use the internet daily, the potential is there if you are willing to write articles about what people want to read. I'm not all that interested in earning money, yet, as I have a full time job and do this because I enjoy it.
To Earn you must Learn!
How are you defining "serious money?" For some that might be a dollar a day, for others it might be $10 a day. It might be $100/week or $1000/month.
Based on my POV and experience here, you'll want to get a few of your Hubs up to 1200 views per Hub per day if you are trying for "serious money" as I define it. (btw, I use the $1000/month definition)
Are you doing any keyword research? Are you writing about what people are searching for? 1200 views is just the tip of the iceberg, some hubbers have that many views in an hour. If you want to build traffic to your hubs, you need to write about things people are searching for and you have to use the keywords they use to search it. I recommend reading about keyword research, it will help improve your traffic big time. Hope this helps
I've been asking myself this same question. I think it takes a whole lot of time and effort. You need to write about popular topics that people are searching for, and take the time to create backlinks and use other methods to pull in viewers. That's why, for the time being I've decided to write here because I very much enjoy writing, and I'm sharing my work for the first time. I'll settle for a little coffee money for the time being, but I hope one day a little more than that is possible.
I only have 3 thousand views and I have 9 dollars. I know that isn't very much but I worked hard for it so I am very proud! I really think it just takes time, even though everyone says that hubpages isn't any good, I don't believe that. I do want to take my time and one day hopefully see something even greater than my nine dollars. Don't quit because you haven't earned anything, do it for the fun and the experiences i'm sure one day we will all get there! But for now have fun. I hope you do decide to stay in the hubpages community!
Personally, I believe that making money on the internet is more hype by people wanting to sell you something. It takes time to build a following and having people click on an advertisement that makes you money. More clicks = more money.
From what I understand it takes a lot of time to build content and traffic that will earn you anything worthwhile. Hang in there and give it some time!

I've just been to another farewell hub and it's sad. I just want to let all my friends who have decided to linger know that I'm still here. Though lately I've been nowhere in sight, I promise to not go away - even if somebody tries to make me.So, are you still here?

A couple years ago in 2011, I had a hub on another account that went up to 5000 views rapidly. Eventually it waned to about 1000-1300 views. Now after a couple years it gets about a few hundred views a day astonishingly. Would that hub be defined as "going viral?" I know it's not...

I've seen a lot of people say no, but I've also seen people saying they are making money through HubPages. So which is it?

What does it take to earn $200 to $400 a month on hubpages?I am just curious.

Hey Hubbers,This is so cool. I am about 8 views away from breaking 300,000 views.Sorry, to interrupt your daily rants, forum play and other things, but I am enjoying HubPages so much, I wanted to share. Thank you to everyone on HubPages and HubPages Staff for giving me the opportunity....

Is it realistic to make $40 a day off of 10,000 views daily give or take? Before HubPages suffered from Google Algorithm updates in 2012; I remember doing very well with views on another account, but I don't think my CPM was that high. I pretty much semi-retired from writing on HP during 2014-2016...
