I've only been here a few days but I've been writing articles for about 6 years. From what I understand the amount of money you can make depends on how many people you get to your hub. You get paid by linking your adsense to your blog. HubPages alternate their adsense with yours at least from what I understand.
So the pay varies on the types of ads show on your pages and how many times people click those ads.
You can help the HubPages community highlight top quality content by ranking this answer up or down.
