How long does it usually take for a beginning hubber to gain an even a minuscule amount of revenue?
This is assuming that the hubber does a bit of SEO (though does not revolve the articles around it.) Is it just a hub-aging thing and it takes time to get a decent flow of traffic?
The other factors are writing high-quality hubs, writing often and writing in an informative, non-blog and non-spamming style. And, of course, the whims of Google's next menagerie release can be game-changing.
It is possible to start earning straight away with a new hub on the day that you publish it.
When you first publish a hub, you will notice that for upto a day after publishing, you will get traffic from Hubpages because your article may be being read by other hubbers. (See explore - top right - hubs. It lists the most recent published hubs and other hubbers go here to see what hubs have been written.)
If you have joined the Hubpages Ad program you will earn every time someone views one of your hubs. So from day one, if other hubbers like and read your article, you are earning.
(Google Adsense is different - it pays you everytime someone pays clicks on an advert on your hub, so no guarantee that someone will click on the first day)
After that first day there are various ways you may get traffic:
Internally from Hubpages - via other hubs on the same subject. (This happens if a related hub shows your hub on the related hubs list on the right hand side of the hub page).
Externally - If you have done your SEO homework and manage to get high up on Google's search results you will attract readers from Google.
Then there are other methods that some hubbers use to increase external traffic further, such as back linking.
From my perspective it took 7 months, I have moved beyond the fifty dollar thresh hold just recently.
It has taken 78 hub articles and over 19,000 page views but now I am earning a miniscule amount.

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic plunges for many hubbers? See link...

Ok, so I've already written two hubs and I have my adsense publisher ID linked with my account, and I am not sure if I did it right or if i'm just not making any money, because my AdSense account balance still reads $0. Do I need to write more hubs? Get more traffic? How long does it usually take...

Since I joined HP there has been a constant battle against the rise and fall of traffic. We are often encouraged to tune our titles, edit our content and generally try to improve our Hubs. Now with the threat of having Hubs unfeatured, as well as the new quality assessment process taking place...

I'd like to suggest we get rid of Hubber Score - and perhaps even Hub Scores. They:- are constantly misunderstood;- cause a lot of upset and grief in the forums; and- encourage newbie Hubbers to direct their efforts in entirely wrong directionsFor instance, I've known newbie Hubbers stop...
