    There are people making good money (More than $2K per month), but it does take work.  The key to making money is to write on a commercial topic like travel, business, finance.

    Make the Hubs informative, rich with information, and very useful.

    For each Hub you publish to get a few other sites to link to your page from pages with related content.

    If you follow this recipe, you'll be very successful with earning money.

    However, there are lots of other reasons to publish Hubs as well.  Like improving your reputation as an expert and helping others by providing information.

      The key to being attractive And writing about things you know and are passionate about.

      I don't think it needs to particularly commercial. People are after information on specific niche topics too. So long as there are Amazon and Ebay products to complement it and Adwords Advertisers paying for Adsense ads there'll be money for people willing to use their time and talent to create original content.

    I've made money via Adsense using HubPages, and while it may not be up in their thousands of dollars range, it's enough to pay a few bills every month.  Each month is a little different, but I've noticed a steady increase in the amount of clicks the longer my hubs have appeared.

    Hi JT, thank you for asking the question.  I too asked!  As I read through the answers from fellow hubbers who are already earning... I am GLAD that there is indeed the chance/opportunity to earn!  Hahaha  YES!!! Hmmm... but this made me reflect that it shouldn't be the first and only reason.  Writing or doing any other task/work with passion and joy and wanting to share and help others should be the reasons.  It would be the motivation for us to keep on writing....especially when the going gets tough.  Otherwise, we'd find ourselves giving up too soon. And what a waste it would be.

      Money is an excellent reason.

      So long as you don't set yourself unrealistic goals or get desperate when it's not flowing in the short term.

    Just to give you an idea, I've been with HubPages 4 1/2 months, and I make an average of $10 a day from Adsense, plus a couple hundred every month from Ebay/Amazon...  It's been increasing steadily over the time I've been here, and I expect that to continue as I get more content up and published!

    JT a secret.. those who do make the 2k a month+ are the ones who arent bragging or saying "I dont make near that" *wink* truth is I'm new too and I'm truly amazed at this group.. never have I see such a communal effort in a money making arena that you'd suspect was highly compeditive but truthfully its not, theirs plenty of info seekers to go around we could all potentially make 2k+ a month its all in contining to listen, ask questions and document good advice.. learn from it and continue to learn, apply, test, apply test and so on.. keep figuring out ways to drive traffic, one good way to learn is to talk to the high end writers who are there, from what I've seen their very willing to share information which is amazing..

    Also focus is important. Don't think can I make alot of money.. think wow I CAn make a fortune here! this keeps your mind in the excited state of ambition, dont ask can I ask HOW can I.. I know it sounds so anthony robbins but its absolutely the truth, your attitude is everything.. the people not yet at 2k a month are going to get there, I know it, their just like you learning, everyone learns differently and based on how busy their lives are they may progress faster or slower relative to the big "K's" but none the less they will get there and yes they will eventually be able to quit their day job..

    Personally I plan to surpass 2K a month with in the first year.. this drives me to want to learn, I wouldnt want to let myself fail now would I? think of it not so much as a game as a mission, have fun, thats important its a component in your ambition, but also maintain a serious disposition to learn and share what you learn freely, competition is what causes bad feelings and chokes the "law of money" something I'll be writing on later.. the law of money states that you must give away, spend, and be charitable to surge the flow more.. this doesnt have to be in money but in where your income comes from too.. as you share they share and we all win in the end.. and its so much fun isnt it guys/girls??

    I love this forum.
