    What do you think the earning potential is for a writer who will have been here for 10 or 20 years?

    Think about current success stories here with some writers making 4K per month... most of those writers have been here for 3-4 years.  Now Think about content and what we write about... how important is evergreen content? Can you write a hub that continues to produce income over 20 years? How do we write content that is evergreen?

    There is great potential if you write quality hubs and promote your articles outside, in my opinion.

    While earnings do have some basis on content, they also related to advertising spending on the part of the advertisers.  That's something no writer nor HubPages has any control over.  If ad spending plummets, so do site revenues and it's not due to anything actually done by anyone here.

    Did you see the thread where the woman who used to be making nearly 4k per month said that she's seen her income slashed by 60% since October 2011?

    Web income is up and down, with frequent changes between the two points.

    It depends on how one works the gig. If a writer doesn't generate a tremendous amount of traffic, or get discovered by Writer Star Search, it could be paltry.

    Very good question. Considering the fact that extraneous factors remain constant, evergreen content will always be a traffic puller provided the content is updated regularly over that period to be in the search engines' crawlers. Only guesses can be made as to the earning potential but there is no reason to doubt it will definitely keep going up. But the most important factor is to keep updating the content, relevant to the current scenario.
    I am looking forward to inputs from veteran and seasoned hubbers. It would make interesting reading.

    It will really depends in the quality of his hubs, topics and how often he publish hubs.
