    I'm very new...12 days and I've made .28 which I'm thrilled with. 
    I'm working on not only the number of HUB pages but what might peak someones interest to click on it and read more.

    I believe I made $.01.  But to be frank, I created my initial hub and then proceeded to just about forget about it.  I've only recently started created hubs in earnest.

    I think it would also be good to know how many hubs each person has written as well.  There's a big difference in the amount you earn if it's only from one hub or comes from ten.

    $13.04 Adsense for 47 hubs. That was between Nov 26 2010 and Dec 25 2010. The hub program wasn't in existence yet.

    I made nothing the first month and then nothing really to rave about for the first year. Then the earnings started to kick in after writing what I know and can demonstrate my expertise in! Some topics win, some don't! You'll find that anywhere online, even if you created your own website, there'll be popular posts and there'll be not so popular posts on a blog.

    I have found that once you find your voice and you write from your own enthusiasm the money flows. Forcing it, reseaching it, checking your scores daily pay nothing. Enjoying the journey, finding the rewards in sharing and growing as a writer produce income.

    To answer your question directly, essentially nothing initially, now I am receiving regular payouts and that monthly check means allot. It is allot more than I ever received from any other part-time job that I left. Besides sharing unique ideas is the fun, the dollars will show up later.

    Allot of the Internet work is similar to relationships, you are the new kid on the block and tested. The question becomes like all relationship at work and in your personal life, do you have lasting power.

    The work is hard, the learning can be challenging, the dollars are nominal, the relationships are priceless.

    Rofl. It took me two weeks to work out how to get Asdense, so in my first two weeks I earned $0.96. I have a massive smile on my face though, it is the first itme I've earned anything for my own work.

    I've been a member for about 6 weeks. I think I've earned a total of about $4.00 thus far. ALthough that's a cool thing to have, I actually joined to hopefully better my writing skills and learn from other writers. So far I am having a blast on HubPages!

    Continuing to write a hub as often as I can (less frequently now because of school)  My first full month, I earned about $6.00.  That's amazing to me, since I wasn't expecting to have that much traffic as a new hubber, especially from Google.  However, I've seen an upward trend in search engine source traffic.  Of course, I've also seen a few sales through Amazon and seen the potential of earning that way.  I haven't seen much Adsense income at all compared to HP Earnings and the Amazon program.  However, time will tell!  Looks like the anecdotal evidence supports the fact that you have to put some effort into hubbing! smile  I hadn't heard of the flagship program MoiraCrochets, I'll have to give that a try and see if I get a bigger boost.

    I just hit that year mark.. read over 8500 times and have 270  hubs..  first year total income  0.00..  but this site is different again the writers are more talented and the materials  are so useful  so I stay here.. Triond pays every month even if you make 50 cents  you get it every month..  I think if you wanna make quick liquid money  you go to triond.. but if you wanna write and read great articles you come here..

    Nothing-- but I was not focused on earning for quite a while, and money was not my primary motivation. It took about 18 month for my first payout, but it kept gaining momentum from there.

    I don't remember how much I made in the first month. It took me 8 months to get my first $100 from HubPages. For almost more than a year, the earnings from my Blogs were many times higher than that from HubPages. But soon HP ended up being one of my top earners.

    I may be a bit unusual because I signed up for HubPages a while back but never published any hubs.  I published my first Hub near the end of February, then signed up for the HubPages earning program on March 1st.  I have made $.91 through today (March 12th) through that program, and a couple of bucks through my AdSense account ($2.31).  Assuming I keep going at this pace It would appear that I will be in the neighborhood of $5 to $7 my first full month of writing.

    Earlier I said I made zero in my first month with only a few hubs, but after rechecking my data I actually made $3.59 from adsense clicks the first month and it has been increasing just about every month since the beginning. I currently make enough consistently to get payout every other month with 81 hubs. Just be patient and write quality hubs. You will see a gradual increase in time.

    Joined on Feb 11th.  Earned $1.84 in Feb and $6.05 in March.  April is going well so far and should exceed what I earned in March.  I'm cautiously optimistic at this point.  I'm also ridiculously addicted to HubPages.

    My first month I think i earn$0.01. It wasn't until 6 months later did I receive my firs payout from adsense. I have neglected hubpages for about 1 year and a half.  Even with no activity I would receive a payout every 3-4 months.  I have since returned to hubpages and hope to stick to my hub a day plan. keep in mind its not about quantity. There are many people with less hubs that I that have a higher hubscore and a greater pay out.

    If I remember correctly, it was something like a 30 cents.  My earnings went up, but it was still mostly a pittance. I didn't really pick up until around month 10.

    I earned $1.73 my first month and it stayed pretty steady like that for a while, I have been here for going on nine months and am now earning in the vacinity of $15.00+ per month and am continuing to see increases although I have still not earned a dime from my amazon account, only the hubpages program. I am certainly no where near a top earner but am learning and improving as I go along. When I see my traffic is down I write another article, when a particular hub is being ignored I edit and improve it or try drumming up a bit of traffic from my other writing sites. I try to keep the content interesting and when my traffic starts to dwindle I try to diversify into new subject area to attract new viewers. Also, it really helped me a lot to read in the forums about improving your writing and how hubs are scored and that sort of thing and to start hopping some hubs and see what others were writing about that seemed to be getting a lot of veiwers and commenting,( side note: for some reason I do not get much for comments, but at least the earnings are improving.) The best advice I got when I started was don't get discouraged, sometimes hubs just need to age.

    I have done the same as some here. Signed up for HubPages and only published a few hubs here and there. Well, after sitting around for almost 3 years and making a whopping $0.58 I decided to change things up and start writing for real. The middle of April I started writing a lot and ended up making $3.84. As of today I am up to 50 hubs that are slowly gaining interest and now I am focusing on promoting them on other sites to get more views. I found a hot topic for me, now I just have to remember to write a lot.

      Finding "your topic" helps in writing and writing for a profit. Its great when  you are writing about something you had an interest in and others are interested
