How many of you live just from your online earnings. I mean your online earnings take care of all your expenses. Is it only from hubpages or other sites too?
Not yet,i reckon 3 more years of hard work and i will be able to make what i make from my full time job!!
How long have you been online?
just under 3 years although i wasted the first 2 by not coming here enough,spent the last year working hard and now get a payout every month,now for a year of even harder work!!
I would say that my online earnings -- and it's only hubpages -- can pay for two utility bills each month.
I'll be thrilled when I can say this statement!! lol
Things became a whole lot more expensive for me with a US immigration, so had to pick up a few clients
HP pays for roughly 15% of my annual beer purchases.
Yup - have done for several years now. Hubpages is a good part of it as well, but I usually earn more outside.
I do, and have done so for aroung 11 years. HubPages is a very small part of it.
I've read that many people say they make very little off Hubs. I wonder if it's worth writing for them or if it's just a pasttime. Comments welcomed.
Peter did not say he makes little off hubs. He said HP is a small part of his online earnings. There is a difference
He didn't say that but many people have said they make very little from Hubs.
I don't write hubs to earn cash from Adsense clicks, if I did I would be writing about other topics entirely. For me it’s about getting traffic to my main site and making high value conversions there.
So, although my Adsense earnings might be small, as a referrer HubPages is responsible for a steady stream of traffic to my site that converts well. Misha´s comment referred to income from hubs not from HubPages.
Does the number you have on the corner have to do with traffic? Sorry for the questions but I'm new to this so if you could be kind enough to answer.
Perhaps traffic plays some part although I am not sure. My understanding is that it is based on how you interact with HubPages. The more often you post a hub or comment on others, how often you ask or answer questions, how often you take part in the forums and how many thumbs up your articles receive all count I believe. There are probably other factors as well but it’s not really that important.
I doubt if Hub Score affects or reflects earnings. Finding a profitable niche to write about is what you should be thinking about if your long term strategy is to make a worthwhile income from HubPages.
Im pleased to say that Hubpages can now contribute to my caffine habit and buys me approx 1 costa coffee a month! I do hope to increase this to at least 2 or 3 a month though
Normally no one has been good enough in short time. Look at the success stories, they are here for nearly 2 years or more.
I've been on here for 2 years and I couldn't pay even one bill from HP earnings. I'm happy for those who can!
I have made a living working online for over 10 years. It took me two months to establish my revenue stream that was sufficient to pay the bills. It's a HubPages myth that success takes forever. But you do have to be nimble, have lots of different online revenue sources, and work mind-numbing hours.
I have hundreds of websites, in dozens and dozens of niches, and work with over 1,000 merchants.
Nelle, I don't think it is a "HubPages myth" that success takes forever. For most new Hubbers, who've never worked online before, there's a learning curve to writing online. Of course, people with previous experience can hit the ground running.
I don't make a living online but I make enough to pay my supermarket credit card bill each month.
I know several people who do make a living online, but they worked silly hours for two or three years to get to that point.

I am striving to be financially independent via internet income, and move to another nearby state. The Modern Nexus bills/laws are what is worrying me.
I am a member of the Performance Marketing Association http://www.performancemarketingassociation.com/. I worry about internet taxes and policies every day.
That's why I've increased my adsense and ebay income. Neither of those programs gives affiliates in nexus states the boot. I've also been educating my state reps about the impact of such a bill
You also can work with companies like K-mart, Office Max, Sears, and Wal-Mart that have a physical presence in the states. That way, they would have to close down their physical stores as well as fire their affiliates to get rid of the local nexus.
I would not want to leave Massachusetts, because I depend on our health care law to guarantee my access to decent health care. It's NOT subsidized health care but it's available and at $872/month a good buy. It's a great place to live for lots of other reasons too. So I'm trying to learn how to fight the laws. It's been defeated in many states when the state reps learn the true impact and it's been the PMA effort that did the most help.
I earn about 1/4 of my income from HubPages mind you, my income is not so high right now
I'm on my way to that goal.
One of my projects to build many Amazon affiliate stores by using an awesome Amazon store script.
The big thing is just finding enough time between having a full time job still and a girlfriend.
Could maybe pay one bill a month but hopefully this will increase to two
Me, too. I've been writing for content sites for almost two years now. I've seen my income move up with the more I write. This is the year I'm determined to write even more and develop my own sites, as well.
For the hubber who started the thread, it's possible to earn a living , but not just from HubPages. That should me one part of a whole strategy.
My online earnings for last year were probably 3 weeks pay at my full time job. I have a ways to go
Could pay a bill or two. Not just from hubs - but I earn a good income from Squidoo as well. Hoping to increase it further this year.
I am barely making money for one regular coffee right now, but things looks promising and I am seeing increase in earned income enough to buy me McD lunch! :-)
I paid for all the Christmas gifts this year with my earnings I could not have said that last year!!! Its very fun! Not all of my earnings are from Hubpages.
I just realized I did too. All my eBay earnings are paid into Paypal, and I used my Paypal account to buy all my Christmas gifts online this year (all my family are overseas).
Gee that makes me feel good!

How many hubs will it take to earn 50 dollars a month in hubpages earnings
by emievil 13 years ago
Hi All. Bear with me for this question (not even sure if I am in the right topic).As an accountant I can't help but ask - do you declare your online earnings (whether from Hubpages or in freelancing sites) and pay the related taxes to your government? Why or why not?

What are the verified sources of online earnings?
by Adele Cosgrove-Bray 12 months ago
My earnings on Hubpages this month have been horribly low. I've only just scraped past the pay-out threshold which is the lowest income by a huge measure for years!Has anyone else experienced a similar drop in income, or does anyone know what the cause might be?
by blondepoet 14 years ago
Yes I was wondering if anyone could tell me how long normally til you see any signs of any earnings at all,or how many hubs do you have to write to start any type of earnings lol
by billabongbob 11 years ago
I was wondering if there are many writers earning more than $100 a week? Consistently.Some people just write for their own pleasure, but others write in order to earn money. There are different ways to get your work out there, some pay whilst others do not.What are your experiences with being paid...
