I was wondering if people can live on their earnings from Adsense...or is it mostly a hobby based earning?
I've been on here only about a week more than you have and from what I can tell, there is definitely a potential for high earnings, but will take a lot of work. You really need 100+ hubs before you start seeing some noticeable ad-based income flowing in......and that may just be a few dollars to begin with. From what I've seen the last few years of having been on a site like eHow, it also takes time for your articles to percolate through the web and increase in the search rankings.
My monthly income from eHow ranges anywhere from $100 to $200 with about 250 articles. Here, I've earned about $3 my first month with about 40 hubs.
Do you write articles for eHow or do they have an adsense type thing? I get $15/article I write for them through demandstudios.
No cant live off of it just yet,but hoping to within the next 5years,at the moment it pays my car insurance,mobile phone bill and buys me maybe one xbox game per month.I do have a couple of blogs but havent monetised them yet as they just dont have the traffic yet.
Nope. Still a long way to go. But at the moment, it pays for my one month Internet bill .
Edit: Oooppps, I mean my monthly Internet bill
Oh man, my dream job lol. Adsense off of Hubbing. Someday!
I know that one of the top hubbers pay their rent with HubPages. As for me, I'm able to pay a utility bill each month with HubPages.
Flightkeeper....paying your utility bill is also great! Hopefully I will be able to do that someday!
Guess it depends on much your living expenses are. Some hubbers make thousands a month...and when I grow up I want to be just like them.
Right now, I easily pay several bills a month with mine.
Thousands a month is quite a long way off for me as of now! :-) But hope to make at least a double digit earning.
I can't live off of my Adsense earnings, but I do make enough to pay for my hosting and my domain addiction!
I like to get to milestones. My first one was making $1 a day. I think everyone looks for that milestone. Next I wanted HP to pay for my gas. I spent about $40 a week in gas. After that comes the rent. Definitely not there yet, but on my way
Slowly getting better each month. Wasn't even paying for a coffee when I first started. So glad its getting better
WOW!That is really awesome.You are going to be an inspiration to many Hubbers I'm sure.
he is super star on hub...he at times makes in one day what people like me take an year to make...
that's hard to believe now that I saw his profile thou.
Not a lot of hubs etc
How is that possible? I thought the most you could earn is 15,000 a month
that great, do you have another profile or your 21 hub was enough for it? i read few of your hubs. that were great.but is it enough?
Not even close to being able to live off my earnings, but I have been away for a long time, haven't written anything (until recently) in over a year. Haven't been doing the things I need to to earn good money here, but starting to pick up the pace again. Getting back into the swing of things, and seeing results little by little. It is a lot of work, but the best work I could ever imagine doing!!!
Live off my Adsense? No.
Off Adsense plus Chitika plus affiliate sales plus book sales plus other sales that come directly from web activity, almost. Off all that plus a very little bit of other work, very definitely.
It is complicated.
I can definitely say that a third of my income is directly from my websites. The rest is harder to pin down.
A long time customer was referred to me by someone else, but thought my rates were too high. I did not hear from him again for months, but then he called me out of the blue. He told me he kept finding my web pages when he was searching Google for answers to problems and that he now did want to contract with me. In the ensuing years, I have invoiced over $60,000 to his company for support services.
How do I credit that? Other customers might have still given me that business if I just had a "business card" website, but they might not have. How about referral business from someone who has been a regular reader for years?
A lot of new opportunity comes through that site, It is just hard to attribute it absolutely.
It depends how much work you put in to it.
You can make full time earnings off adsense, if you put the work in to it. Using a mix of incomes is a better way to go though!
I can pay some bills every month with what I get from Adsense here, and am planning on making a livable income with HubPages. I go through learning spurts and am working on learning more about backlinks now.
BTW Misha- you are my HubPages hero!!
Aww, thanks Dorsi, love ya too
Saleheen, it is not all from hubpages. In fact hubpages is a small part of it. What I make on HP is enough for a decent living in most parts of the world, I just happen to live in a place that is many times more expensive.
Just adsense no. But combined with my affiliate income,yes and quite well.
I make a full-time living online. If it was just Adsenes - I could live off it if I moved to a cheaper Asian country. Adsense plus affiliates - Im making about the avg wage of my country.
Its just hubpages though and I have multiple accounts here as well - oh and its not random. Learn how to pick keywords- write a lot of hubs, learn how to do backlinks - rinse and repeat.
Its not that difficult but most people quit before they have made enough effort to succeed
I'm getting there, got my first Adsense cheque and am working towards the next
Its beginning to pick up - enough to pay a utility bill every couple of months. Hope it keeps improving for all of us!
Guess it depends on much your living expenses are. Some hubbers make thousands a month...and when I grow up I want to be just like them
I am a very very long way off from 1000's a month but I hope to make at least 50 a month for now.
Although if I was a normal type person with wife, kids, mortgage, car payments, etc. probably not. But it pays for my rent, food, beer, smoke, and the occasional holiday.
I can certainly see the snowballing of earnings happening. And I'm hoping to earn enough to stay home full time as a mum.
I can pay my car payment with it, but my main career by far provides the meat of my income.
Ahh it would be nice to pay some bills with adsense, especially as I stay at home a lot.
Maybe even pay a vet cost for one of my dogs who needs to get his eye checked.
Yep, sure would be nice. Lol.
We are planning a holiday for mid next year and so every time we near the thresh hold, we move it a bit further away.
Keeps me motivated to chase a threshhold. We could probably pay a few bills, but this way works for us. Its more fun.
I wonder if any other hubbers are doing this. It also takes away the disappointment every time you check your earnings to see what youve done so far.
My earnings pay the rent but not the rest yet. It's all Adsense and 90% comes from blogs only around 10% from my 65 hubpages - I still find the click-through rates on my hubpages very low and getting 700 backlinks to one hubpage like one person does is very difficult if you are doing it all by hand !

Can you remember what it was like when you first started to write Hubs?Before you read this rambly post - please know that I am not a newbie trying to suck you dry for information without doing any of the work myself. What I'm interested in is how you got through the first few months? How did you...

Because it doesn't count...

I'm starting to recruit new Hubbers now that I have a feel and comfort for writing here myself and have 7 so far. One has started to write and few others are about to. I see all the other earnings reports from the HP ad program and Amazon, but I don't see where I will be able to track what I'm...

After 3 months of active work my earnings through Amazon was only 3.70$. Although the conversion was 20% - 13 sales, with 64 clicks (goods is very cheap - the cost of 1, 99$).Me interests, whether there are people who earn here by means of Amazon (at least 100 dollars a month)?
