What should be an ideal traffic a hub should get per month?
What should be an ideal traffic a hub should get per month for it to become an average hub, an above average hub and a good traffic puller hub?
Well, the potential for every hub is different. It depends on the topic and how many people are searching for that topic. You can write a wonderful article about an obscure topic, rank #1 in Google, and get very little traffic because nobody is looking for that information. So, just because a hub doesn't pull in a certain target doesn't mean the hub is bad - it could mean that the keyword is bad.
Personally, I use two thresholds to determine how successful a hub is. The first is 100 views / month. If a hub gets less than 100 views a month, then it's just a flop - could be poorly optimized, could be a poor keyword, who knows. If a hub is getting around 100 views or slightly over, then it's ok. Definitely not a great earner, but worth keeping around.
The next threshold is 1,000 views / month. This is where I consider a hub to be successful and earning a decent amount of money. If you estimate that you earn about $3.00 CPM (after you give HubPages their 40% share), then 1,000 views per month will get you about $3 / month. On an annual basis, that's $20 to $25 per year. I'd be happy with that, and if a hub is getting near or over 1,000 views per month that I consider it successful.
There's no way for you to know what an "average" hub is since you don't have access to other users' account data. You can only know the average of your own collection of hubs.
If you want hard numbers, the average CPM is $2 - $4 depending on the sorts of topics you write about, so if you want to make the $50 payout every month, you need 12,500 - 25,000 views per month total.

Does anyone have a good idea of how many hubs I would need in order to make at least $50 a month through the Hubpages Ad program? 100? 200? Anyone achieved this monetary amount per month yet?

How many views do most people get on their hubs?

I was just wondering what hubbers considered as "good traffic" to one of your hubs? Some of my hubs only get a handful of reads a week, while others get consistently 75-100 reads a day. After looking at my...

I hear people talking all the time about hubs that produce good readership, but I know this number differs for many. In your case, how many views per month do you think is good for any given article? Just...
