So that is unhelpful
This isn't exactly true. Yes more tables should be more money and a higher $/hour, the thing you need to understand is that everyone has varying skill levels and means that you will only be able to play a certain amount of tables profitably. When i was first learning i played 1-2 tables, then grew to 4, then 6 etc. But i was always aware that my ROI would be dropping slightly as i added more tables, but it shouldn't be dropping dramatically.
I started out playing 9 mans, and i found that with 12 tables i was at my highest ROI, but whenever i loaded more than 15 at any given time, my ROI and $/hour would plummet. So with my skill level at that time, and my inabilibity to be able to control that many tables i foudn my ideal number of tables played, which is around 10-12.
There's two things i notice with people that multitable.
1. they find multitabling easy, and think they can play 10-30 tables. But what they inevitably end up doing is just hitting the fold button as fast as they can and missing alot of good profitable spots.
2. they add too many tables, they time out alot, get put under pressure by the amount of tables popping up, so again, they resort to folding alot, which changes their game to the point where their edge is again diminished.
So, basically, what you want to be able to do is play many tables, but play in a very similar way if you are just one tabling, sure you will have to change your game slightly to accomodate the amount of tables played and you will likely miss more spots, but you don't want to miss too many. TO be able to do that it's a slow progression and will depend on how much you are studying the game, the more you study the game the more overall knowledge you will have and you will be able to know what to do in common spots in SNG. IF you know what to do in alot of the common SNG spots, you will be able to play much faster without thinking about them as much, and then you can add many more tables.
