    Hi, I just wanted to do a little survey to get to know how long and how much work does it takes to become successful on hubpages. I want people to give how much they made during the first month, how many pages published vs. How much they make now, and how many pages now. Example

    Month 1
    5 hub

    15 dollar/month
    60 hub

    please also indicated how long have you been on hubpages

    In the first year I think it took me about 60 hubs and 6 months to make $5. It started going up after that.

    I have not written a hub on this account for almost a year, but my earnings are still increasing and I make a couple of hundred a month in a good month, from all affiliates.

    I think it helps to write a lot of hubs but it many writers cases it is one or two hubs which can generate the most income out of their large selection. I write a lot in the hopes that I will get lucky and find one which ranks high and is popular again. Backlinking is also very important, something which requires extra time which I find hard but try to do.

    I joined Hubpages in November 2010.  There was no Hubpages Ad Program then, only Adsense, Amazon and eBay affiliates.  I had Adsense and Amazon, no eBay.

    First month:  30 hubs - 0000 earnings -  I was new (still is) writing online, so my first hubs were like blogs.  After the initial internal traffic, they all dropped dead in googleland.

    Now:  105 hubs - I earn close to three hundred dollars a month.  Most of my hubs were written during my first six months, and then I lost motivation.  Why? It's a big rant, so I better write a hub about it. lol

        Thanks, David.  It's amazing, considering I must have written about 5 hubs in the past 7 months.  smile

    It doesn't totally rely on how much you write, its also about backlinking and maintaining you position in the search rankings(therefore maintaining your traffic and conversions)
