    I checked your hub and as you only have 4 hubs it's quite normal I think. You just have to keep writing a lot and publishing and the moeny will roll in eventually. But you are doing quite well.

    I would recommend writing more hubs and also ensuring your titles and content are search engine optimized using the Google Keywords tool.  That amount is low, but you only have a few hubs also, so give it time and keep creating search engine optimized hubs and you'll find it increases over time.  You can also periodically update hubs to keep them current/fresh.  Also, be sure you are doing other things like backlinking etc. if you are able and socially sharing as that will get your traffic up.

      Very helpful, Thankyou christinS. I'm getting familiar with google keywords although I find it confusing to understand any advice? At the moment I think I'm backlinking, adding links in my articles but only in one article so far just learnt how to do

    For someone with only 4 hubs, I'd say you were doing pretty good. I have just hit the month mark, and even with 18 hubs published I'm not doing as well as you. I guess no one loves me or my hubs. wink

      Thankyou sandonia, at the moment I've written one hub a week. Keep trying! Success could be around the corner smile will take a look at your hubs.

    I've found that it can take up to one month after publishing a hub before I start getting traffic.  Of course, more traffic, more ad displays and the higher chance for making a few cents.
    So, hang in there.  Write more hubs and give it some time.

      I signed up late to display all my ads so this maybe the reason for the low earnings, which was only about 2 weeks ago. I love hub pages will stay long term smile Thanks crazycatman

    With only 4 Hubs, that's verging on the astonishing.  I wrote30 or 40 Hubs in my first month, and only made cents. So you're doing well.   It takes time for Google to rank your Hubs properly and that's when they'll really start earning.   HubPages (and any writing online) is a long-term investment - often, what you write today won't start earning properly until next year.

    I agree with all the other answers so I'll just add that even with 72 hubs I am earning under 25c a day some days and more on others.  However the community, the writing practice and seeing small pennies grow into dollars is a great reward and I know that one day I and you too will take off on hub pages - we just have to keep on writing.

    These type of questions come up all the time. The real answer is no one should be looking to earn a living wage out of this site or even close to it.

    The site is ranked in the top 300 on Alexa.com as far as traffic goes, so if you can produce quality writing but can't spare the time to get your writing into more formal channels, at least your message is getting out there via the reach of this site, which is pretty simple to use (in my experience).

    But to put the earnings from this site for each person (if any) into perspective, I'd be willing to debate anyone that their total earnings -- allocated to an hourly basis -- are less than the minimum wage hourly rate that is mandated by law in their respective jurisdiction. That goes for the "most successful" users as well.

    In order to figure that out, add up not only all the hours you spent making the hubs, but also all the the hours spent in de-facto "training."

    This site may well work better for some people who are in different circumstances than the average working person due to whatever reason. Notwithstanding that, a person would be better off taking orders at a fast food place than trying to make money out of this site.
