    Are the Hub Page Success Stories still accurate?

    Are the stats on the Hub Page Success stories in terms of earnings still accurate? Or since those were awhile ago, are they now making more or less because of Google changes that I keep reading about. I need some incentive and was just curious as to how much it is possible to make here.

    From what I've read, those figures are no longer accurate.  However, there still are many writers on HP who do very well financially...just not as well as before Google got picky!

      Thanks. I am thinking that myself. I wish they would do an update on the Hub Page Success stories. I don't care if they make less, I just want to know it's still possible to make good money here.

    I think it must be correct. Why should one publish fake story to reveal that he has earned this much or that much.  People generally won't reveal their income in fear of certain factors. Still if one boldly says that I have earned a lot through hub, why should we doubt him. No need.  Anyhow publishing fake statistics is not a good practice and always mislead the hubbers, especially the new comers.  Believing this, they may build castle on air and spoil their precious time and energy on writing. So all hubbers need to be provide exact information regarding their income.

      Oh no, I didn't mean were they accurate when they were 1st reported. If you notice on the Hub Pages Success Stories page, all the reported income for each hubber was from October of 2011. I 'm wondering if they still make that much today, May, 2013?

    I can only speak for myself, but I still do well here. My average earnings from HP are $500 monthly. Not as much as they were two years ago but that's due to many factors, not simply Google changes.

    So yes it is still possible, but you will need to put in a lot of work!

      Thanks so much for responding. $500 a month is encouraging so I will keep plugging along. Congratulations to you, and I appreciate your honesty in the response here.

    Speaking from my side of things I think HP is genuine and so are the sucess stories told,  I am earning fairly well so far and have never written for any other site as this one most pleased to be here.
