How can I make money on HubPages?
By serving ads on your articles, HubPages gives Hubbers the opportunity to earn from their published work. To earn from your writing, you must first sign up with one (or more) of the affiliate and earnings programs we have available.
Being set up with HubPages affiliate and earnings programs does not mean that you will be guaranteed earnings. Your income from HubPages is contingent on your success as an author-- specifically your success in driving traffic to your articles.

In short, to make money, you need to sign up with our affiliate partners while also regularly publishing high-quality articles on not-already-extensively-covered subjects about which you are both knowledgeable and passionate.
Finally, you must be patient. Most Hubbers, even very talented and active ones, do not see significant earnings (or even make their first payout) for at least six months. HubPages is not a 'get rich quick' scheme, but can certainly pay off for those who are willing to put in the time and effort required to create a robust, truly valuable, search-friendly portfolio of articles.
