The featured hubbers with financial success earnings are all 2011. Why is this?
I was looking around and found a page with hubbers who have consistent financial success but all earnings reported are in 2011.
I have often wondered this myself. The best I can come up with is that 2011 is before Panda and Penguin came out. The ability to make money on the internet with seo was severely hampered, I also wonder if these same people are doing as well now.
I know that I don't make very much from Hubpages but I also see potential, and I like it, so I'm going to keep at it.
I don't know, ever since I have been on Hubpages, these are the only featured Hubbers I have so far seen!
I think TMHughes is correct, the amount of money being made on HubPages is not what it used to be before the Google Panda and Penguin updates. It's really a shame because those updates were put in place to elminate low quality content from the Google search results, and very few Hubs fall into this category.
I joined HubPages shortly after the 2011 heyday, and heard a lot of stories in the beginning about people making $100s per month here, but those stories aren't being told much these days. It would be nice to get an update on how some of these financial success story Hubbers are doing and adapting these days. Perhaps some have left HubPages?
Probably because that was during their prime. I don't think they make as much now after the Goggle updates.
Well Google reduced the traffic that Hubpages received from Feb 2011 onwards so that in turn reduced the earnings that hubbers can make.
Its also only just 2013, so I am not sure success stores from 2012 will be out yet.
Honestly, they are probably the people making the most money still!
Myself, as of right now for this month, I am at $28. So, at this rate, that is a payout every month. It takes a long time to build up traffic/hubs to get that much - which is why I think they are the ones still making the most!

Almost all of the hubber who feature on the "success stories" page are losing massive traffic, why?Does this mean that overall HubPages is losing steam? Does google not rate HubPages as highly as it use to?

I have noticed that, when signed out, there is a new homepage. I am not sure whether the new format is helpful. There are some great hubbers featured making statements on how much they earn from this site, the rewards and a massive video that talks about HubPages. There are also...

If I may be so bold as to make a request of HubPages, I would like you to please re-examine at this time your decision to ban Jerrico Usher from the Hub Forums.He has proven himself to be quite mindful of the mistake he made before and seems to me to be waaay to smart to make the same mistake...

I'm curious to hear if there are any hubbers, who saw a big drop in traffic after the most recent Google Panda and Penguin updates, have fixed their issues and are getting good traffic again yet?I think it would be good for us all to know what changes brought about your renewal of traffic, since...

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...
