Considering what has transpired with some of my hubs in the past few weeks (and months)... I see how making $1500-3000 dollars a month is possible. I have less than 10 hubs gathering 66% of my traffic - only at the moment - this will likely change because of search engine trends, seasonal etc.... While my "older hubs" are not making as much income/traffic as they once did, they still equal a respectable amount considering the money earned is passive anyway.
I have predicted many of my traffic downfalls and rises, but have came to the realization, that I must focus on VERY specific niches at the right time, and use SEO intelligently.
I understand that people who make 1500+ a month on HubPages are the minority, but how many people approximately make this much a month?
Five? Ten? Hundreds of hubbers??? The exact number is not important to me, but an approximation, perhaps?
David, some of your hubs are on trending topics/games. They have a limited life. While its great you are doing so well, they are not evergreen topics, unfortunately.
So they have a shelf-life.
Actually I wish I knew about these things because I could take a temporary surge in traffic, I really could.
Meanwhile, enjoy it
Yes, this is why to some extent, I am not creating long-lasting passive income. However, I do have a gaming niche written a year ago that still gets good traffic - not sure how - it even survived Panda! Perplexing...
My health related hubs just do not get a lot of traffic...They are not hot topics....unfortunately. I think those topics would do well with Amazon , though, because I am actually starting to make some money with Amazon.
According to the self-reported stats I've been collecting on my Hub about improving your earnings, from Aug 2010 to Aug 2011 4% of respondents reported making over $1000 and had been with the site for 3 years or more.
This year's stats are still too new to be useful. Suffice to say, it's most likely that only an extremely small number of users out of the entire site membership are able to make that much.
In the end, the people who get successful money-wise stop talking about it as it's in their best interests not to.
Yes, I suspect most people who make a couple thousand do not talk about.
Interesting poll results. How often do you reset the poll?
Most people who sign-up to HubPages do not even write anything.
I think some people just want to use the religious and poltical forums and post 1,000,000 replies to why god does or does not exist....
Or why "lefties" or "righties" are ...fags.
I know at least one guy who registered a hubpages account just so he can comment spam my hub. He posted ONE comment, then went back to post third-party (non-HP) comments using the same name.
Is this really possible or is this a joke?
I think most people who made that much did so before Panda.
I could buy a lot of double cheeseburgers with that kind of income from HP... mmm.
Some of us are more concerned about paying overheads, rent, bills etc, but if you want to stuff your face with cheeseburgers, be my guest Your funeral.
Man cannot live on cheeseburgers alone...
I'd prefer some pizza and mexican thrown in too.
I guess rent and bills are pretty important...
Screw the cheese burgers, Dennys twice a week and bills paid would be my dream!
I very much enjoy Ramen Noodles minus that damned msg flavor pack.....and canned tuna, clams, or chicken.
Louisiana Hot Sauce makes the world go round, btw.
I think there's a law in the South that every home has to have at least one bottle of hot sauce!
I've never made more than $14 in a single day here. I'm super aware that high end acoustic guitars aren't going to make me Hubpages "rich."
I'm into "blue chip" articles though - steady is...STEADY!
I haven't made that in a day since pre-panda.
I haven't either!!!!
I made the....."jump" or "sacrifice" to run HP Ads....so there is less chance of making big Adsense, and an absolute certainty that I'm going to make over a buck a day....
Jump? Sacrifice? Hmm... what exactly relations do the HP Ads have to the AdSense ads? I've been pretty confused about this. If your HP Ads program is turned on, does that just mean less AdSense ads are shown?
I've had my best earnings month here since last December this month, Panda affected my best hubs but they came back stronger and I'm supplementing my hubs with niche Wordpress sites as well. You never know if a hub is trending or not, Google search results decide your fate anyhow and for how long
Yes Please..... please send me $2000 every month.... I NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDDDD it... lol
Looks like I'll make around $2,000 this month, but that monthly amount will decrease after Christmas.
I see that you are not wasting time on hubpages, I am new here but I hope I can, some day, reach that income.
I'd have to suspect there are a lot (relatively speaking) of people making that type of money on HP. Every major rev share site has multiple success stories of people making it big.
Big earners are definitely in the minority, but there are bound to be several. Some will openly state it, but others probably never post on the forums or talk about it. I'd have to suspect that for each person openly talking about it, there are at least two ghosts that you never hear from.
As well as I'm doing lately, I could definitely see how it's possible, and I figured out how much traffic I need to get there.
Now, like you said, we just need to use SEO intelligently and keep on keepin' on!
See you at the top, my brother.
So we'll all meet up and have cook outs and drink Champagne like rich folk when we get rich off HP? Sort of like our own little country club
some hubbers have quite an impressive earnings report every month. most of us dream of making something near these figures.
talent is a big factor along with choosing the right subject matter.
Some in spirational posts here. It seems that some people just have the knack of creating the type of hubs that people want to read.

I'm just curious to see what the average is for newcomers to earn in their first month. I know that the more hubs you have, the more impressions you'll have and potential clicks, but I'm really interested in hearing from some of the top earners, maybe to help inspire newcomers who aren't...

How many hubs will it take to earn 50 dollars a month in hubpages earnings
by Andrew Day 3 years ago
Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

These days, if you publish well-written, popular hubs, can you really make money from them on Hubpages? I've been hearing a lot of bad press about Hubpages lately, about how everything has gone downhill since some mysterious Panda incident, and how most Hubbers have left for greener pastures? Is...

HP ads are running on my hubs since one week. My earnings through the program are pretty low, may be because of lower traffic I am getting. My hubs were making couple of dollars before signing up with HP ads. Now from past one week my hubs earned nothing from adsesne.I am just thinking whether I...

I am writing articles for this website since past 3 months. At present, I have 38 featured and published hubs. I have joined for Amazon and google Adsense program. Past two months I earned like very less amount, less than 1/2 dollar. If I continue writing and publishing at the rate of one article...
