    After 18 months on Hubpages I have finally made my first $150 which is the threshold for payment through Adsense for Australians.

    So you can make money here on Hubpages but it does require time and effort. Good luck everyone and happy Hubbing!

      Wow! I'm really happy for you! Congratulations! I haven't made any money here on hubs, mostly because my adsense application was turned down. But it's really fun doing blogs on Hubpages!

    We've been on about the same amount of time. That's why I need to follow you and watch how you do it.

    I think the real kicker for me is that I only have about three hubs that people religiously come to me for. I just wish I knew more unique subjects.

    Congrats. It took me a few months to get to my first $100 with Adsense. Now I earn thousands per month with all of my websites and everything.

    You can definitely make money, but it takes time. It also helps if you have a few websites, and don't just rely on one source.

    well done and hope the next $150+ comes all the faster. This proves that patience and persistence pay off. I am about 14 days in now and would barely be able to buy a burger and fries with my Adsense earnings. Nothing through my Amazon sales yet but I'm learning more and more each day and most importantly it is a lot of fun. That's why I started writing to begin with and had no idea about the affiliate marketing and generating revenue through Adesne and the other programs. That's just a bonus. Thanks for sharing.

      COngrats!!! I have 3,478 page impressions from a previous site and only made an estimated 02 cents : ) I'm happy to know that it's possible to make that much.

        wow! It has taken time and effort though! Yet it does get easier when you learn how to build traffic and if I bother with keywords.

      I am Australian, will take me some time to reach $1000, probably 5 years!

    I think the times you write and dont earn money, give you more strenght and motivation for the times when money flows. You also get to understand what you are good at writing about, why others do so well and how to find ways to improve.
