I'm new to HubPages and I'm curious how many people use HubPages to make money. Is is to make some pocket change or are people actually making a living on here? What percentage of users do you think do it just/primarily for the money?
I'm only doing it for the money. Never had much interest in riting anyway. I just put pictures of nice things and tel peeple to buy them. Reckon I;ll be rich in about a week, should be rolling in ti by then.
Sorry, I didn't mean to be sarcastic. Just a little joke.
Serious answer. I am here to make money. However I don't have the first idea.
It was a really funny answer. The ironic part to me (not intended I'm sure) was that people who have no business writing anything may be on here trying to make money writing.
I figured I'd buy a mansion next week, in 2045 that is. LOL Loved your answer.
I have published 16 hubs and one gives me some pocket change, so the more hubs you have the more chances of making money. Of course with that goes keyword research, SEO, all that good stuff, I can only suspect those with hundreds of Hubs may see some money every month.
I would take a look at our success stories:
They can give you an indication of what's possible if you're persistent and patient.
I'm here to make money off of Hubpages massive authority for hubs(and hubcaps) and yellow pages(plus white pages). Hubpages is like 2/3rds as good as Wikipedia can you imagine how much money Wikipedia would make if it was monetized?
I would venture to say nobody makes a living here, at least not YET, however keep in mind the money is residual income, which is the best income you can get. Who knows, maybe after fifteen or so years of Hubpages the best writers can slowly but surely fund a retirement. They probably wouldn't live lavishly, but they wouldn't have to work. They would have to pick topics that withstand the test of time though, nothing temporary.
I know quite a few people on hubpages who make several thousand dollars per month on this site - yes it takes time and persistence, but not 15 years, lol!
Wow... that's pretty sweet. Do they write about stuff they're interested in or are they writing based on popularity of topics to maximize revenue?
It's different for different people. Some write hubs that are just going to make money, some write a mixture of money hubs and stuff they're interested in and some just write stuff they're interested in.
The joy of hubpages is that you can do it anyway you like
The key really is writing on something that interests you but with a mind on the search engines at the same time.
I was going to post a forum post that said something along the lines...o I use Hubpages to make a cup of tea, but that would have come across like really sarcastic, so instead I'll just say yes I do!

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

I am talking about best and worst scenarios. I have been through many posts on the forum and other places. From what I understand, you can hope to make (in the best case) about $1 per month per hub. So is that true for many of you? For instance, if I go berserk and post 1000 hubs (don't even ask me...

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

I was just thinking what is the best approach for success with Adsense. Before you say the same old things about SEO and keywords Here are the two approaches:Person A publishes 800-1000 hubs in a year with little keyword research and some SEO optimization.Person B publishes 100-200 hubs in the...

You know, I see forum posts complaining about how the forums are boring or dying. I see people complaining about how there's all "Indian Aunties" hubs or picture hubs, how people don't edit, it's all marketing crap and nothing good to read... and then I find these amazing...
