A hub that i recently made has only 2 dollar signs next to it. How is this determined? I thought it was a pretty decent hub. The only thing i didnt do was put a lot of my keywords in my text, because i didnt know about it at the time. Could that be the reason? How is it determined?
Actually I'd like to know that too! One hub I wrote started off with 5 stars until I added the tags, thn it dropped? And they were all good keywords that I'd used in the text. So I took the tags off again and it rose. I've just left it to see what happens.
hun try not worrying so much about $$ signs and focus more on writing and getting more followers... also i recommend reading the help forums and the terms of service you can learn a lot from other hubbers who have already asked these same questions you keep asking ... there are hubs on the questions as well.
hope this helps
Ok, just one more thing then, cos i cant seem to find this anywhere. How much can people actually earn with hubpages?
Nelle is earning 1k per month and there are some other members who are earning 100$ -500$/month.
I thought February's figures put her up to 2k a month?
So from this it looks pretty tough to make money on hubpages. I wonder what the average person is making.
Not a lot in the first year with the exception of Nelle, I suspect.
It is not tough at all lol. I only have 38 hubs and am doing great.
I have a poll up on my Hub about earnings. Of course, only those who visit and choose to vote are represented.
It's really all in what you put into learning about the site and how it works. I suggest you read other hubbers like Darkside, Nelle Hoxie, Yoshi, Mark Knowles and any others that have hubs that pertain to writing on hubpages. It is how we all got started, I'm still learning but I'm old so my learning curve is a bit slow,
Here is a good source from Relache. She touches on the metrics in this hub http://hubpages.com/hub/Boosting-HubScores
Earning potential is just an estimate. Not sure how it is calculated (probably just from keywords used) but I have some hubs that have $$$$$ and some that have just one $. Usually the ones with lower dollar signs end up making more money because they get more traffic. It depends on so many variables.
In order to really figure out how much money you can make, you should use Google Keyword's tool and do research for the keywords you use.
And yes, people can make money on HP. Last month was my best with $250ish. HP is great because once you write it (and do research for keywords and traffic) you can just sit back and get a nice residual income for no additional work!
Some figures that have come up in my research into online publishing platforms.
DS revenue share users can expect 1.29 per month per article, its a similar model.

he achieved 2 per month per article...
Im pretty sure I read a post by ryan Hupfer that put the average sitewide ecPm at 3-5 USD.
and those are the returns for people who dont do keyword research and promotion
Personally, i think you should go write at least 50 hubs before even asking a question about how much you could or should be making
Just out of curiosity, why do you think you should ask that question only after 50 hubs? Because you should do it more for the love of it than for money?
I say you should write 50 hubs so you can learn in a trial by fire, all the answers you get for your questions this early in the game will only lead to more questions...youll spend all your time asking and not enough time creating.
Build your web properties, along the way you will gain a lot of skills and have some perspective to work from. Your older hubs that were created when you had less knowledge can always be tweaked and edited and modified as your vision changes
I wouldn't worry too much about the dollar signs, they can give you a vague idea, however personal experience on hubpages leaves it as only a rough guide as to possible earnings.

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is.
