I've been here 4 years and have never met anyone earning anything like that. I know some people who were earning $3,000 to $4,000 pre-Panda. I don't know whether anyone is still reaching those levels today.
I just realized I missed out something important in that sentence. I meant to say, "$3,000 to $4,000 per month pre-Panda". Those figures were fairly reliable. I have never heard of anyone making more than that from HubPages.
But, it's basically the Panda updates that everyone is talking about. It's basically a change in the Google search algorithm so that people get better results when they search for stuff using the search engine (at least that's what it's supposed to do).
I definitely fell into the group who did benefit, although from Feb to to mid Oct my earnings and traffic dropped a lot. Suddenly in mid Oct (when Google tweaked the Panda algorithm again), my traffic just crept up and up and up, and my income along with it, so since Panda I am better off than before, although like I said earlier, I am a little down on my usual figures for the past couple of weeks approx.
Yes that is true, but don't join here by hearing such words. Because that strength will be within 10 numbers out of 2,20,000 hubbers overall. It will reward to the great and original content writers only and having great SEO knowledge.
Pre-Panda there were some sorta anonymous hubber with very misleading hubs which earned them millions of views because searchers thought they were going to the real businesl site. I have no idea how much these scammy hubs earned but they sure were difficult to get removed from the site. Who knows?
So are you going to reveal what you were really earning (roughly) before being sandboxed? That might be useful to new hubbers as well. I am happy to openly admit I am well into three figures each month without giving specifics.
Nightmare. I got to a bit over that per day (and my highest day was over $37), but as of a few weeks ago it has dropped off by quite a bit for no apparent reason other than a possible tweak to Google's algorithm again. It is not direly down, just a bit depressingly down as I had got used to the monthly income I was getting (fatal). I just keep hoping it will pick up again on the next Google tweak (probably much like you do). Thankfully I have not been sandboxed though (yet).
I have started moving my non-performing hubs off HP. There's quite a lot of them, but I've started with the ones which have never got much traffic and found a new home for them elsewhere. This has been since August 10th and it is getting me down
No I have some ideas...I've been meaning to write a book for about...I dunno...30 years?
I might get round to it soon, you never know!
Edit: My other accounts? Not really because they are new. None of them have hit a soft spot, that delightful place where a hub goes viral as soon as it has published, though I've had that happen on this account. I have one hub that got 150,000 hits in a year on this account, but it could have done better. C'est la vie!
In my opinion, it just isn't accurate on the forum to say that a member whose account remains active and who has published hubs "has left." Others would easily get the impression that the account had been closed, which is not the case. Misha presumably still has earnings from his remaining hubs, he is still bound by the rules. He has not left HubPages.
Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
