    I am hoping that some people are willing to share their financial goals in regards to hubpages.  I see many sites going down, and I don't like that.  I think we need to be a community that shares and supportes each other.  Gives suggestions and offers help if capable. 
    We are a community and need to act as such.  I will admit that I have not been the best here, I will probably never be the best here.  I have read great authors and I am not on that list.  But we need to support each other and make each other better.
    I am curious if anyone is willing to share their financial goals in regards to hubpages.  I am looking for $100.00 a month currently.  It is a huge process, but with the help of others and reminders of how I should be doing some things.  If no one responds, the  community can't offer help, and we can't support each other.

      My goal would be able to quit my day job, unfortunately my articles are very seasonal but for 5 months out of the year, I do quite well. Today's payout (have not yet recieved, usually later in the day) will be just over $1,660. Last month was over $1,500. Not too bad for just 28 articles. As I've said before though, this good money ceases for several months out of the year. I, too hope hp hangs on for many years to come.

        robhampton, I'm impressed that with only 28 articles you are generating a good bit of monthly income. I see that you have been with HP for 8 years now. How long were you in the system before you started to see income in the hundreds of dollars per month. This should give us newcomers some idea of what we can expect if we stay on for the long term. I hope someday my 20-some articles will bring in revenues in the hundreds of dollars monthly.

          Just so you're aware - that's far from the norm.  For example, I have about 125 articles and between 700-1000 views a day and barely make payout each month, which has only been occurring the last 4 months or so. I make between $1.25 and $2.25 a day and work hard on marketing my articles such that it's not passive income. It all depends on your niche, views, type of content and what ads are on your articles in terms of what their rate is.

            m-a-w-gposted 17 months agoin reply to this

            There is not much of a pointer in regards to what to make when etc.  The ads that get displayed, the amount of views, purchases from amazon, etc.  All affect how much you make.  One person I know makes up to $50 to $100 a month from 13 articles written 7 years ago.  I know that doesn't help, but there is a lot of variables into making money and definitions of what successful is with online content.

              I know it's been said a gazillion times but I think it bears repeating.  SEO aside, the bottom line is writing articles on things people are searching for and answers common questions they have in a unique way.  Of course SEO helps in regards to rankings, traffic and ultimately income.  But all the SEO in the world isn't going to take an article written on something no one is interested in and catapult it into the number one position resulting in big time traffic and earnings.

        2. lobobrandon profile image90
          lobobrandonposted 17 months agoin reply to this

          It's not a matter of time anymore. Yes articles take a few months to reach the top spots, but after the Panda update and the whole subdomain thing, rankings were not good. But with the niche sites, traffic is back up. It should take you 2 - 3 months max to see really good views, if not you need to work on your article to improve its SEO or write on another topic. If you see the forums, there was a person who wrote an article and within a few weeks that article was getting 800 views a day.

          In short, 8 years does not mean much, other than the experience gained.

            time has more backlinks if well written.  If you hit a great niche then that it awesome, but takes learning seo knowledge which takes some experience.  There are articles I have that are years old and a couple views a day and others that are ranked first that sometimes have thousands a day.

            1. lobobrandon profile image90
              lobobrandonposted 17 months agoin reply to this

              Check the backlinks of the ones that are ranking, very likely they do not have many. Backlinks help for sure.

              Like I also said it takes experience and SEO knowledge. You are relatively new here, not sure if you know about this, but Pre Panda before 2011 a few months before I joined, people used to rank for everything under the roof. It's not exactly the same, but the niche sites are really strong and it's a lot easier to rank today than say 2 - 6 years ago.

                We are getting off topic, I haven't disagreed with anything you said.  I was attempting to state that information on how much someone should make for how long they have been writing isn't possible or reliable if someone decided to do it.

    2. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
      TIMETRAVELER2posted 18 months agoin reply to this

      I disagree with some of what you have said here.  I've been here 7 years and have found my fellow writers to be extremely helpful and supportive.  I have not seen any slow down in this area, either.  As for the survival of HP, nothing is guaranteed...however the team has done everything possible to keep us afloat, and their efforts are paying off.  As for sharing financials...that's against the TOS...furthermore, publicly stating your financials invites scammers, so it's not a good idea.

      1. m-a-w-g profile image95
        m-a-w-gposted 18 months agoin reply to this

        I think that fellow writers are extremely helpful as well.  I still think there was more activity before.  When there was the Golden Nugget Award, the Rising Star, etc.  Had people involved and talking more.

        Things are different, not necessarily a bad thing.  I like some of the suggestions, such as a goal for views instead of just money.  Since you have been here 7 years, I'm sure that we could learn from you as well.  How do you set your goals?

        1. TIMETRAVELER2 profile image98
          TIMETRAVELER2posted 18 months agoin reply to this

          I have never set financial or traffic goals.  I have always tried to produce the most informative, helpful articles that I can in order to help people.  I have tried to learn from my mistakes, which have been many and am constantly upgrading my articles.  Within the next week I expect to hit the 3 million mark for page views, something I would never have dreamed I could do...but I've been lucky.  I still have many articles that could do better, so I keep busy with them!

    My first reaction is: wow.  How we respond to you in this specific thread does not determine the basic nature of this forum.  Maybe tone it down a little.  At the end of the day this is a forum were some people with a common interest hang out and that's all. Sorry if that seem harsh but if you need some social support right now I would suggest looking for it in real life rather than the internet.  Maybe look at Meetup.com

    On your actual points, Hubpages has the best chance of survival of any content site, but everything is at the mercy of Google, so keep your stuff backed up.  Due to this unpredictability I don't make content writing a key part of my freelance earnings plan, but I like to aim for a payout each month.  (I focus more on ebooks and blogs).

      Thick enough skin that I am fine with your comment.  HP activity seems to have died down a lot over the years.

      Interested to know when you say ebooks and blogs, do you ghost write or just have multiple venues for your writing and claim it as so?

    Right now I am working towards making $50 a month so I get paid every month. Right now I make about $20 - $40. I had a spike in traffic these past two months and my earnings went up.

    I just got paid my second payment ever of $70 today. While I enjoy to write starting to make some money in my PayPal account also makes me happy.

    I guess overall I would like to get to a point where I make $100 a month eventually.

    I barely participate in forums as I find them quite combative sometimes, in saying that— I didn’t think I would make anything, however with hard work and great networking I’ve now got a monthly revenue of between $30-40. I have branched our and started my own website and made affiliations with people within my niche. HubPages taught me how to write better, have goals and be strict with my grammar and literature. The best assistance I’ve had is in that respect. Knowing it takes improving in that area even when you think you’re pretty good.
    I would love to make $100 a month, more if possible but happy with what I have already.

    Interesting post as I need to have a goal really and that will make me create more articles to reach it. I guess the next goal would be $500 a month (currently around $300) so that will take a bit more work but would be very useful income. I think realistically I wouldn't make that until sometime next year as I need to do at least 1 or 2 really good articles every month, if not more.

    I make enough here so that I do not really have any financial goals. I will probably not make my next accolade for another 30 years, so I do have a traffic goal, and then when I hit that (hopefully this year!) I will have to come up with something else.
    Your own goal should be easy to achieve based on the amount of time you have been here. The only thing you need to do is write more. I read your article on chisels (something I have to deal with almost daily) and if you write all of your articles so that they will be moved to a niche site you will be making your goal in no time.

    I recently wrote this hub. I also have another one I just published today.

    I wanted to get this last hub finished so I can spend more time creating my own website. I spent some time thinking about it and I am going to buy hosting soon. I am writing some content to have ready to post right away.

    I still will probally write some more hubs though as I don't expect my own website to make any money for a good while if it does at all. At least the first year of hosting is cheap.

    So for now I will mostly just respond to hub question and read and post on the forums.

      I'd very much be interested in a pros/cons list of hosting from someone who is familiar with both their own website and HubPages. Good luck!

    I also have both. I’m about to make my first small payout.

    I guess the only pro is it’s mine haha. I’ll still write here too and have just begun to think about how I can make the two platforms work together. It’s great that HP has given us access to our stats now. That’s one reason I began to branch out. Similar platforms to this (hp) have now contacted me asking me for content.

    I really enjoy the learning aspect of my own site (seo, branding, keywords all come with sites like Wordpress) and am hoping to hit key components when I publish here. Editors have said how much my writing has improved (when resubmitting polished old articles)

    I honestly think so far though— HP can’t be rivalled in some ways. They do a lot of the work for you with respect to audience but I still like my site lol

    This is a really awesome discussion.I have found very interesting views and comments.I aim to write high quality evergreen articles that are highly engaging and informative for my audience.My goals are to have around 200 articles by December and hit 1k views per day.

      Wow, 200! That's almost one article a day. If you are working on it for a few hours each day that's totally doable. Good luck.

      You can achieve that goal with fewer articles but they must be interesting and high quality in order to do so.  I have one article I wrote 7 years ago that has gotten just under 284,000 views and currently gets around 300 views daily.  I have known people here who have written articles that have gotten as many as 5 million views.  So it is not necessarily quantity that brings views.

        I think you are correct in that you do not need that many, but it certainly improves your chances. If you write 10 articles, one might do well. If you write 100 articles, 10  might get good traffic. It is unlikely that you will get excellent traffic from all 10 of those first articles, no matter how high quality they might be.

          Statistically you are probably correct, but there is no accounting for what people will want to read.  I have never believed that writing tons of articles is the way to success here.  One good article can be worth its weight in gold where as 100 mediocre ones aren't worth much at all.

            A fair point; I agree that churning out articles isn't good if the quality of each suffers. That said, as DrMark states, some articles simply perform better than others.

            I suppose my point is quality definitely matters, but casting your nets in a few directions can help you see what does and doesn't tend to attract traffic.

              Can't argue with that, but also feel that reputation is important.  As long as articles are of good quality, fine...but when we start writing just to churn out articles, that's never a good thing.

      Yikes - that's more than two articles a day!  It's really better to focus on quality not quantity.  It's not how many articles you have, it's the quality of the articles, whether or not they are evergreen and whether they are on topics people are searching for.  Churning out article after article usually isn't as successful as putting out carefully constructed articles that you keep updated and continue to improve over time.  Of course do what you think best but the strategy of "getting as many articles as I can write out there no matter what," usually leaves people burned out and doesn't result in anywhere close to the traffic and earnings they were expecting which zaps their motivation to keep writing on HP.  Just another viewpoint to consider.  Good luck either way!
