What is the threshold number of hubs to really start seeing some income?
Please don't respond with cliched answers like "your hubs are what you make them, just write for yourself." I get it, we all write because we like it, but we also wouldn't be on HubPages if we didn't want to make a little bit of money. I'm asking for a benchmark, from experience, how many Hubs did you have to write before you saw your earnings begin to climb considerably? I have heard the number is somewhere around 100, but all of the success stories are closer to 1000.
I'm not sure it's the number (because I'm only in the 70s right now). I think it is writing great content and learning the rules of attracting (Google) to your site. After that, it is allowing the time for this to happen. Once I learned just this little bit, my earnings doubled. Now I just need to write more.
Specifically, what were the things you learned to cause your earnings to double?
Titling is everything; good topics; to use Google Keyword Tool; write a high-quality 600+ word article; use the capsules with keywords, etc.
You should start seeing some income from the hubpages ad program at around 50 hubs provided they are all articles and not poetry or short stories.
As ithabise mentioned titles are very important. Use the google keyword tool. Just changing the wording of your title can get you a ton more views.
Personally I find that I make a lot more money on days that I have published hubs, answer a bunch of questions in the answers section, or commented on several hubs.
I make about $30 a month with 60+ hubs, but about 1/4 of those are poetry or short stories.
You have also been on the site for 3 years so that may play into your earnings. My goal is to get a check every month (so 50+ dollars). It seems that around 50 hubs is the mark afterall!
I have been a registered member for 3 years but I wasn't really active on the site until a few months ago when I started publishing hubs that weren't poetry.
My earnings are low now, but they are growing every day. I'll let you know where I'm at when I hit 50 hubs!
It's not the quantity, it's the quality. But you also have to factor in effort. The people who make the most here don't write Hubs casually, they approach it like it's a job.
One thing is for sure, over the years on this site, what it takes to be successful has changed. It takes more Hubs now than it did three years ago.
luckily I am full of it. I have been told hubs were coming out of my ears before hubs existed so I guess 1000 days is the magic number. thanks

I'm just curious to know how other people have done. Right now, my record is a very prestigious 2! I'm sure I'll do better in the future though (I hope!).

I never thought I would ask that but having just looked at the large number of hubs now classified as Idle in my account why should I write any more, and what am I do with all of those already here? A lot of them are good quality writings I know because they had previously been published in hard...

So I've got a few hubs up and really just started here on hubpages. But the impressions that I get on hubpages, vs my google adsense doesn't quite make sense. I understand they take 60% of the impressions, but I was just curious. Those of you with over 100 posts and using google adsense are you...

Okay it is not really an issue.It is more like a dilemma.Well not really, it more like an ill-thought-of or foolish desire if anything else.But, okay I really cannot explain what it is.It's just that for the longest time now, I have wanted to make the Number of Hubs I have written be the same...

First, I want to apologize if you've heard this question a 1000 times before, but I'd be grateful if you could advise me from your experience.If I was to publish a large number of hubs across various topics, each targeting a well researched keyword/s, is it realistic to aim for an average daily...
