    I really just started 3 months ago.  But I seem to average only about $1.50 a month!  I'm improving slowly.  The more I write, the more I participate, post, link things to FB, Twitter, Pinterest, etc...
    It takes time I guess?
    Per Hub is to hard to say since each article gets different amounts of traffic.  At least that is where I'm at. Oh I hope someone that makes decent money on here replies.  I'd love to know of people actually making checks every month!  I feel as if I'm an eternity away from my goals.

    For my 50 Hubs in last 4 months I am getting $75-$90 a month as of now. So average earnings per hubs is around $1.5 to $1.8.
    Whereas, some Hubs are earning $10+ A month and some are below $0.5. It depends on topic of Hub and how much traffic you are getting.

      wow.  That is the most impressive reply yet.  Do you write for the love of writing?  or earning?  I want to write about trending topics.  I suppose research is in order here. If I could make $50 a month, I'd be happy and motivated, but I love writing

    I would say $1.20 per month. I write mostly poetry which is not a big "seller."  I'm okay with that.

    Well, do you mean earn from an accounting revenue recognition perspective? In accrual accounting, revenue/earnings are recorded when they are earned, not necessarily when they are received. I say this only because I've not earned anything from a cash accounting perspective, having never reached the threshold for payment receipt. If the money was considered earned under an accounting theory, my average would be some loose change every month. Now, i can't speak to what others average but I assume it's less than what you'll find under a vending machine.

    Since I'm just getting started and my earnings are increasing every month, it's hard to say, but at this point, I'm getting about a dollar a week, so about $4 to $5 a month.

    Hoping it grows to a couple dollars a day so that it will take care of my student loans when I graduate smile

      I write stuff that seems to have a very narrow "niche" (or I'm just terrible at marketing myself) so I'm not exactly raking in page views. Let's just say I'm a long way from ever getting any sort of payout, but then I'm not in a big hurry either.

    Well I can't really say on hubpages because I've only been here a very short time but I've been on Squidoo a while and with the recent google slaps and all it's probably comparable. I would say ~$2.5 / month per hub.

    I'm relatively new, less than two months, and I make maybe two dollars a month.  Not great.  I figure, if I keep at it, and learn the techniques to gain steady google traffic, I'll boost that number considerably.

    I've been on seven months.  A lot of my hubs are columns I wrote for a newspaper back in the 1990s, and due to the fact that they are not good "Googley" search hubs (ie. they are creative writing), they have gone idle.  So with about 28 published hubs (and many of those book reviews and recipes, which I'm finding don't do well either), I'm getting about $20 - $25 a month now.  I will slowly be adding in more hubs along topic lines that I'm seeing work well, and hopefully will slowly see that increase.

  23. brianrock profile image82
    brianrockposted 11 years ago

    As an absolute average, not very much. Instead, I like to think of things in tiers of success.

    About 5% to 10% of my hubs are successful (1,000+ views / month). So they get on average $2 to $3 per month.

    Another 10% to 20% fall into the "moderately successful" range, getting more like 100 or a few hundred views. Which translates into an average of $0.25 to $0.50 per month.

    The rest make pennies per month.

    The key, in my mind, is to write a lot so you maximize the number of successful, profitable hubs. You can't succeed with every one, so don't worry about the ones that fail.

    Theophanesposted 11 years ago

    That's hard to say as I am always adding new hubs and my earnings are going up for the past few months. I've been on Hubpages for a long time but have only been paid for the past year (had a bit of technical difficulty signing up for the pay programs.) Anyway... last month I made $72 and almost 130 hubs which comes out to 55 cents per hub per month. These Hubs are on pretty obscure and varied topics so they don't get a lot of hits, nor am I "creating my own brand" by writing about the same thing over and over (which they say is the key to making the big bucks.) It's not a get-rich quick scheme but it is nice to be paid for doing something I would be doing anyway (writing articles.) Besides this at 55 cents a month each Hub could potentially continue to earn for years which is nice. I mean if you find someone to pay you for an article most of the time you'll get $10-15 but if a Hub stays earning for three years it'd be worth almost $20. I guess it is a game of patience.

    It sounds like there is a degree of variation.

    I earn, the enrichment of being able to express my interest. Honestly, a few years ago, I tried the whole affilliated venue. It was consuming so much of my time keeping up with my hubs and accounts, it really is not worth it. If you have a seperated site, that you are selling products, this is a good way to optimized your site. I used to do SEO tech for businesses, one thing we did for our clients was to make articles, post videos,and write fake reviews. The more information you have, about one particular thing, on seperate sites, can lead to first page optimaztion. Yeah, its not so much in the embeded hmtl. It has to do with popularity of one phrase. Youtube, is a great tool for this, so if you plan on selling anything online, it would be a great start. Pay per clicks, well there is, really no money in it, unless you have 1000's of hours to invest in hubs and other freelance writing sites. One site is not going to cut it, just for 1 cent per click, even 1 dollar. I don't want to rain on anyone's parade, I'm just speaking from experience.

    I've only been writing since mid-January, so it's been two months. So far, I have 20 hubs. I started in the Apprenticeship program in January, so I am slowly learning how to build useful and interesting hubs that will hopefully increase traffic. I just started earning Google commissions this week, and it came to all of 80 cents. Thankfully, I am earning Bonuses with each hub in the Apprenticeship program. As long as I follow the HubPages guidelines, I will continue earning Bonuses up to 12 months. Hopefully by then, I will have 100 hubs and earning much more in Google and Ebay commissions. Unfortunately, I cannot earn anything from Amazon since North Carolina (my state) does not allow for Amazon Affiliates. With that being said, the Apprenticeship program has been an awesome venture for me. I'm learning new things each month on building hubs that will hopefully bring more traffic. I would suggest it to anyone who wants to build their HubPages business. :-)

    But 4/5 of my views come from 2 of the 7 articles.  Those two articles have made about $4.00 so far this month, the other 5 have made less and $1.00 each.

    I have Adsense also, but have made very little from it on Hubpages, I do much better on my YouTube Channel with Adsense.
