Could you make a living writing for Internet sites like HP and others?
If you could make a living writing , how much time would you have to invest, how many articles would you have to write in a day or month, how many sites and what would be the estimated potential earnings?
Yes you could, though the amount of work it would take and the unpredictability of earnings would mean that you wouldn't have all that much in terms of job security. It is a great way to earn some extra cash though.
this is good if you are working part time. just keep on accumulating your writing and you never know what you can achieve
For most people, no. You're not going to make a living writing on a site like HubPages or similar.
Let's say you make $5.00 CPM. You only get credit for about half of the views (the other half go to HubPages, like revenue sharing), so effectively you're getting more like $2.50 CPM. Get 10,000 views per week, and you'll make $25 / week (or $100 / month). You'd need to get 100,000 views per week (400,000 views per month) just to make $250 / week ($1,000 / month, or roughly a minimum wage job).
You can increase those earnings by using the Amazon modules, but you still need a massive number of views each month to make anything resembling a "living."
There are people that make real money writing online. They usually publish their own blogs/websites, have thousands of subscribers, and sell their writing (through eBooks, subscription courses, paywalls, etc). A writing site like HubPages (or Yahoo! Voices or Squidoo) can help you make a bit of cash on the side, but it's highly unlikely that you'll make $1,000+ per month. That sounds like a lot, but you can make $1,000 / month by going to work at McDonald's.
Back to your original question, a good evergreen article might bring in an average of 1,000 views a month. That's $2.50 (assuming our $2.50 CPM). You'd need 400 of these successful, 1,000 views / month Hubs to make $1,000 / month. I think you'd be pretty successful (and somewhat lucky) if 10% of your Hubs reached that level of traffic, so you'd need to write 4,000 Hubs. If you pumped out one well written hub every hour, that's 100 weeks (40 Hubs / week * 100 Weeks = 4,000 Hubs), or approximately two years of full time work.
Good luck with that.
