How much money do you make?

Writing online is hard work and the pay seems to be miniumal. Yet, every online writer wants to know the secret to earning money with Google Adsense. The secret however is not so much of a secret. Each and every person lurking around the online world holding a Google Adsense account already knows the key ingredient needed to earning money online. The problem is, do they know how to access it?

Since you are reading this, you are probably wondering what the key ingredient is and how I could possibly say that you already know it. If you already knew it, you wouldn't have come here looking for help.

After checking Google Adsense and seeing there are only a few lonely dollars showing as your accrued income, you are starting to wonder if this online writing gig is a failure.

I too have been in this boat as an online writer who has also earned a few lonely dollars, and once I tell you what the secret to earning money online, you will realize you have known it all along!

Every online writer wants their work to be read. Second to that is to turn a hobby into something that actually makes money. While it is a hobby job, some people may only get to spend spare moments working on their art, whether it is the wee hours in the morning, that half hour lunch break, or when you should be in bed and the entire house is quite.

This may sound familiar because this is the schedule of the majority since there is truly only a handful who are truly successful online writers making a strong living while writing online. But, the reality is, you can do it too. You just have to know the secret!

Disclaimer: Strong living is meant as a person who makes enough money purely off their online earnings to be able to support their lifestyle. While there are some that do earn money, it might not be enough money from Google Adsense without other income to supplement.

How Google Adsense Works

Tell Me The Secret!

Don’t get me wrong. I am not suggesting it is impossible to get paid through Google Adsense. There are many people on Hubpages and other writing sites that do earn a regular paycheck. The problem is figuring out those key ingredients that will allow you to finally write full time and be comfortable doing it.

So, without further waiting, I present to you the secret of making money writing online with Google Adsense!

The main key is people clicking on your ads. Yep! That is it! As an online writer, or someone who is depending on an income from Google Adsense, the only way to make money is to have others who happen upon your site to click your ads.

I told you the secret was obvious and you already knew it! But here is the problem. These people must have the desire to click on those ads. You can’t tell them to click on them. That would go against the Google Adsense terms of use. Therefore, to get them to click on the ads, the ads have to be something that is interesting to them. So how do we do that?

Research Topics To Talk About

What is there to write about online. Pretty much the sky is the limit. For some, choosing a topic comes easily. To others it can be a bit of a challenge. However, the good news is, you can write about whatever you want. However, when you are looking to make money with Google Adsense, choosing a topic to write about is important. You have to choose a topic that is going to have attractive ads placed with it.

So what topics will give you the best ads? Think about the ads you would actually click on. Think about what interests you. Chances are good if it is something that interests you, there are others that feel the same way.

Are you a health freak? Write about health topics. The readers who visit your hub are more likely to be interested in the ads placed on your page.

Are you a parent? Write about changing diapers and taking care of the kids. Maybe a few ads might advertise coupons for diapers, resulting in a reader clicking on the ads for that coupon.

Now the list could be endless. Yet, I am not going to give you any more clues. After all, if I give you all of my suggestions what would I have left to write about?

Keyword Research

If you have been writing online, you have probably heard about keyword research and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) several times. In fact, it might have been mentioned so many times just the thought of it is enough to set off the gag reflex.

Ok, maybe it's not that bad, but knowing how to find good keywords is key to understanding how to get Google to find you, and the higher Google ranks your page, the more likely your article is going to be found. The more your article is found, the more likely someone is going to click on one of the ads on your page.

Result: Money earned.

Now the question is how do you know what words are good and what words are a waste of time. This is the easy part. Sign up for Google Adwords. It is absolutely free. Now take a word or a phrase into the keyword tool in Google Adwords. Good keywords are those that people would type into Google to find information. This will also give you a good idea of the Cost Per Click (CPC) so you know which keywords you should aim for.

The value of this service is priceless for an online writer. You can find the Keyword Tool under the Reporting and Tools tab. With Google Adwords, the information is right at your fingertips. What you do with it is completely up to you.

My recommendation: the best keywords will be those with a large search rate and a low competition. But nothing says good quality writing won’t come out on top, so don’t be shy about using keywords with a lot of competition. Just remember, the results will vary. Google Adwords can be a good suggestion but it doesn't mean you will get you will be making millions overnight! However, about 10 minutes of research can end up making a difference for your pocket book at the end of the month!

Don't underestimate the use of links in your hubs. Not only is it a great way to gain more exposure, but it completes the whole Hubpages experience!

Writing Online Resources

Linking hubs to your hubs - Why it is important - Still hesitant to add a few links to your Hubpage articles, here is some reasons why you should spend the extra time!

The 15dollarnaire - Using Adsense by Google to Earn Money - When you start using adsense, hitting small financial milestones is a big deal. Every penny ads up. Follow these tips to make sure you stay on track to earning money.

Money Doesn't Grow On Trees... unless you plant your own - When you start making small changes, you might find out there is more money to go around. Find out how to make your own money tree with this article.

Writing the Right Thing at the Right Time - overcoming a form of Writer's Block - Have you ever been in one of those situations where you can't figure out when to write. This article will help you become organized enough to capture all those ideas and get them down on paper.

Self Promotion!

If you want to be successful in making money online, the key is advertising. Now I am not suggesting you go out and buy a bulletin board directing people driving by to visit your Hubpages profile. Chances are good you won't make up the money it cost you. (But if anybody has tried it and it worked let me know! I am curious!) However, you are not off the hook. You do have the responsibility of generating a buzz about your work. What does this mean?

Self Promotion!

This is one of the most uncomfortable thing about writing online. If you want to get others to notice you, you need to stand in the middle of the room screaming your name.

One of the easiest ways to do this is by joining social networking sites. That is right. Get over to Facebook and Twitter and get your name out there. Share your work. You can even make your own page just for your writing. And stay active at it. If you don't put it out there, you can't expect that anybody else will either.

Backlinks are also essential. The more outside sources linked to your articles, the higher Google will rank you as a writer and the content you produce. You can easily get backlinks by connecting relevant hubs with each other.

While choosing a good topic and doing your keyword research is important in making money online, don’t underestimate the use of links. These links spread throughout the internet is what will help you be found and ultimately rank you higher on Google. Higher ranks means more earnings. After all, the more traffic you get, the more likely it is that someone will come by and find an interesting ad on your page.

Think money. The better the ads, the more people that stop by, the greater chance you have of making that extra buck!

Knowing the secret is only half the battle....

Now that you know the big secret, (even though you have known it all this time) it is important to realize this was the easiest part of the entire process.

Making money with Google Adsense takes patience, takes dedication and frankly, takes a whole lot of work. It is definitely not a get rich quick scheme, but it is legitimate and can be done.

If you are looking for something easy, then writing online is definitely not for you. But, if you are willing to put in the hard work, dedicate some late nights, do the research and mostly, just write, earning money with Google Adsense can be rewarding… right down to every last penny you have earned.

And when you finally hit payout, just think of how proud you will be to say that you earned money as a writer!

I want to be a Billionaire

Good hub, and definitely a lot of good ideas. Keyword Tool is half of the selection process. You need to know how many other suites you are up against. Too many, and it may get hard to rank.

Also, the bookmarking sites are great you suggested, but you can also put RSS feeds out for your article as well as write other articles with similar topics and link them all together!

Confession: I've been a lousy follower for a few days! I MISS MY FRIENDS AND WRITING HUBS! This morning was the Royal Wedding and I even yelled at my bf for calling me during it! LOL! Oh, but I wanted to add to this, that there's tons of other affiliate sites to sign up to that help too! I think I'm signed up to all I can lol. All I can keep up with anyway. But been kinda sickly under the weather too, house is closing this week :) YaY so look now you're score is higher than mine! Well, you do have more followers.. you pied piper you! :)

Okaaaayyyyy - well BBG I'm gonna book mark this and save it for when I can understand it in full! I don't even have an adsense account:) I can't understand how a person could have time to write or even look at any other writers site! How do you do it? Jeeze, I'm a loser! Lol! I'm just taking baby steps but your hubs are a huge help! Will have to check the sites you recommended this weekend.

@McGilwriter - those are some great suggestions. I haven't played aroudn with the RSS Feeds yet. I am afraid I am not to familiar with them. Maybe that should be the next thing I check into.

@Katherella - I can't believe you got up to watch the Royal Wedding... you should have taped it and got some sleep so you can get over be sicky sicky. Ha ha - now get to work... lol

@RealHousewife - Get your adsense account open already... lol... you are around here too much to be missing out on all those pennies you could be getting ;) As for the time... I think I fake it. I spend what time I can and if I don't get around to it... well, no need to stress. Of course, I am guilty of having my favorites that I constantly seek out. Mostly I work when I watch TV. But there is so many others that do so much more than I do. I am a fast typer but a bit of a perfectionist so putting the hubs together take forever.

The keyword thing is important. I write my article and then review to add keywords. As a matter of fact I need to go back and edit some older Hubs.

Thanks for the great suggestions.

barbergirl28 5 years ago from Hemet, Ca Author

I have a few older hubs that I need to go look at and review. It is amazing how much more knowledge I have on keyword research than I did just a short 2 months ago. Keywords definately make all the difference. Not to mention, if you see any of my older hubs, you can really tell the difference in the layout and the whole attractiveness in general. This is definately a place of learning... and each hub gets a little better each time. Thanks for the reminder to check out my own hubs. I got some work to do ;)

@Harvey - unfortunately, that is the problem with Google. If you hold a grudge against someone and you know they have an Adsense account, that is one way that you can really effect them... getting them banned from adsense. I would keep trying and keep harrassing them. I have heard them eventually reapproving an Adsense account but it takes persistance and being the squeeky wheel. Good luck.

@RealHousewife - Right me up a list of questions and I will get on that. I will call it RealHousewifes Personal Guide to Hubberville.... lol

@Sharyn's Slant - Have fun watching the vidoes. Only one really holds good information. The other two are just fun videos. I love those songs and I always sing them to myself! LOL I hope they don't get stuck in your head as well!

LOL I'm back, and I'm getting back into things! Yeah I took a day of shopping for things I certainly cannot afford right now, but it was a good boost to make me feel better! Especially when I look over at my new RED (vibrant red too lol) purse and think.. I NEVER WEAR RED??? HUH?? WHAT DID THE ROYAL WEDDING TO DO ME! I'd only went with my little store coupon to get the replica of the royal ring and came home with a new purse and three pairs of new sandals. Um, yeah there's something wrong with that picture. Anyway...

RH?????? Girl!!! OH my Keywords? lol I got flagged for having too many when it still suggested more! ? I don't know! But I just add in what ones I think fit the hub the best!

I agree with BBG, we'll get you the guide to hubberville! You've got superhubber down ok! Why not hubberville.. maybe we should get out own village going too LOL! :) I missed you guys while I was under the weather.. and I mean UNDER tornado's and rain and ugh.. a little shopping sure was painful on my shoulders and neck, and I'm paying for it today.. but I'M BACK and going to help BBG to get you going! (Hi everyone else! :) lol

Hey finally Kat!

Look BBG - the crews all here waiting for further instruction! Seriously - you guys could make a hub that even experienced hubbers can learn from! I am making questions today (next actually) that I seriously needed help with but if not on FAQ - I didn't want to creep people out asking for personal help! It's a delimma and slows my progress. There are a couple of hubs I'm waiting to publish because I am a little limited in my ablilities to use links and etc.,

Kat - I took my girls shopping a couple of days ago - ok I admit I am not a shopper. In fact, I'm a dangerous shopper. I get urges to push people out of my way. But, I had to get something for Syd to wear to Junior Achievement day - her teacher gave community jobs to children based on what she thought they would be in real life - Sydney was appointed CEO:)! Lol! I told you - very serious child! Anyhow - it was fun! She got a cute outfit and no hassle. I just wish you could do my shopping for me! I love Red - now do a hub on howmyour red purse makes you feel sexy! Haha!

BBG - betwixt marathons - Harvey needs your help! Lol! Did you come up for some air Harvey?


barbergirl28 profile image

barbergirl28 5 years ago from Hemet, Ca Author

@Realhousewife... I am waiting! LOL Get going - I can't wait to see what you come up with! LOL

@Harvey - From other people, I have heard that it sometimes takes more than a year of constantly asking them. They take fradulent clicks seriously and unfortunatley, it seems you are the victim. But they should be able to tell where the clicks are coming from and know whether you are telling the truth or not! That really sucks... but keep trying and eventually you will probably prevail.

@Katherella - That was an awesome purse and some kicking shoes. I saw them posted on FB page. My motherinlaw walked up behind me and she was like "CUTE!!!!" I told her you have an addiction to cute shoes! LOL

I love red - so if you don't ever use the purse you can always send it my way... hint hint hint! LOL I hope you aren't paying too much for going out shopping, but it seems you are workign through it. Good to see you back on and back to normal normal things! :)

@RealHousewife - Alright - I will be watching for you email. I have to publish a hub first before I can publish anything else... the reason... because I am about to publish my 98th hub and it is a tribute to 98. It wouldn't make much sense to publish it as my 99th hub so that is my first thing to do. I even made my daughter draw a pretty picture that I can use as a graphic. I told her millions are going to see it... lol

Don't feel bad - I hate shopping too. Sometimes it makes me want to punch people. I think it is the aggressiveness of the stupid designers who think it is appropriate to think a 30+ year old wants to wear something with her but cheeks hanging out or costing more with a lack of material. AHHHH shopping - if only I was normal! LOL


RealHousewife profile image

RealHousewife 5 years ago from St. Louis, MO

Ok I am sending you something! Wow - 98th hub! So awesome! I am working on 30:) LOL! Way cool that you are using your daughers drawing - I will show it to Syd - she will probably want to leave her a comment.

No BBG - I get totally annoyed by the way too sexy outfits for everyday living that are on the market. Come on! How sexy do I need to be to shop for a freaking basket of food? (I don't want to be too sexy for my food!) LOL! It totally would embarrass my kids too - Laurel won't wear anything that shows much skin (thank GOD)! Some of the little girls these days even look provocative - I wonder what the parents are thinking? When I see them - Im thinking - "here's to the future whores of america!"

OMG - did I say that? Well I'm really against it - I think it promotes pedophilia!

@RealHousewife - I got the email... I could only read a part of it because it was on the phone... they were working on the wiring for the internet so it kept going on and off so I stayed away for awhile after I published my last hub... Now I am going to check that out and see what kind of work you have cut out for me... lol

Oh yeah - and you did say it! LOL By the way... did you see those bikinis from American Eagle (I think) Some parents were suing the store for marketing the swimsuits and saying they were too provacative!

@Credence2 - Google is one of the greatest mysteries of the Internet. Funny cause everybody rights about the secrets of Google but it is all really just speculation. The only ones that understand Google is Google... And I am not sure if that is necessarily true either.

Hope the tips work for you!

Katharella 5 years ago from Lost in America

lol you guys are too much! Oh I'm glad ya like my new hoppin' red purse! Yeah, had to go out today so hehe.. ok, yeah I do love to shop, but I have a hate/love relationship with it I guess. Like the red purse is LIKE TOO young for me, but I have my frumpy old lady fat shorts n' tank top on, and huge red sunglasses that match and since I got two piercings in my left ear and one in my right, I don't match my earrings, but I don't look like the 90 yr old trying to look 20. (cos that's just gross lol) Although my brain tends to think like a 20 year old! But my coolest friends ever are way younger than me, and I think they help keep me young in a mental kinda way! (I can't physically keep up with them though)LOL.. BBG lol Tell yer mom n' law thanks! Glad she likes my stuff.

RH: That is SO CUTE about Syd! I would of LOVED dressing him up! Walking past the kids dept, I seen little boys' suits! I seen a swanky cool deep blue, not navy, but um, hard to describe, darker blue but bright if that makes since,-suit at jcpenny's it would of looked super cool for a little ceo in the making! Shiny shoes n' nice kinda Pierce Bronson type slicked 007 hair! Hey I already got him dressed! lol I think Laurel, GOOD FOR HER, I hate when I see people letting their little girls show too much, I totally agree on promoting the wrong impression, but it teaches the kid to use their body rather than brains to get ahead in life! My dad wouldn't of let me out of the house in what I see some girls wearing nowdays. (of course I did sneak some things under my clothes then shed that at school lol and switch back before time to leave LOL) but, halters and hip huggers were "in" and I could wear hip huggers with a LONG shirt, and the only halter I could wear was one mom made me that had a shawl type thing she sewed in it. With high wasted pants or a skirt.. but in 7-8th grade I was in private school so it was measured 2" above the knee and no short sleeves or HOME we went! lol. At least it taught us morals, then public school was culture shock lol. I think some parents don't realize the impact being overly protective rather than just teaching good morals has. I was reading about "helicopter mom's" and the devastating effects it has on their kids. Watching out for them is one thing but letting them get their own personality is another.

Anyway yer both perfect mommies lol :)

Well, yeah I think the idea for the cool 100th hub is a great idea! You'll think of something cool then promote it everywhere! Even my FB page lol, you're totally welcome! :) And oh, we should twitter them too! I have an account but rarely use it. But I'll do it to help out my followers and friends hubs! In fact, we should do that, then do retweets on each others! lol.

Plus don't forget the new idea for the contest is coming up and I can't wait to see what the theme is, I have some that will be good competition, but knowing the theme is only the beginning of the battle. I can't believe some of the ones that have won have NOTHING hardly up there, like.. um.. well nevermind, but anyway, I think us promoting them elsewhere is good too. You guys know blogger is an affiliate too right? I did one on the Royal Wedding and it got quite a few hits! Ok, I'm going to sit back for a few episodes of my new Dudley Do-Right disc.. lol (yeah shopped at the dvd store today, gotta love a Military town lol) :)

OMG Katherella - you just crack me up. I still want the red purse though. Red is my color you know. LOL although it seems that it has been a hard find for me lately. But that very well could be that I am not a shopper. I actually kind of dispise it. So, I got a tank top from my husbands Grandma. I was kind of stoked. It was read. I tried it on and my husband was like - wow- that brings me back. I think it is because when he first met me red is the only color I wore. Needless to say, all my red tops wore out and got thrown out and now I have none left. Now I have to try and find some more but haven't found too many that I actually like. Oh how I love red... it fits my hot personality. Like fire. BTW - according to the stars my husband is Ice - I guess that is why we go together so well... lol... I think I need another Chocolate Martini! LOL

You can't be too old for a color Kat! Jeeze! You are not too old for a red purse! Haha! Hey you all would love to see some of the crap my mom wears. She's 61 - does kickboxing and spinning classes. I think she could kick my ass. But omg! PETA would stand outside her house if they knew how many dead furry things were in there

Ooooh hey y'all! I watched Zombieland last night! LOL - Dave was rotf! He had not seen it either - I just couldn't believe how hard I was laughing because a woman hit the pavement face first. It seems so wrong but somehow that thought made me laugh harder:)!

Katharella 5 years ago from Lost in America

To clarify: (as if I have to for certain people) but I realize the Dudley disc most likely came from some kids unwanted dvd collection, my point was when you live anywhere near a Military town there's an over abundance of Pawn Shops, where certain things are bought oversea's, then brought home, then when they get shipped out again, cannot keep everything, thus, ends up in the many pawn shops! Military items include: dvd's, engagement/wedding/promise rings, diamond neckaces/earrings charms, and anything they've bought for a family they had but didn't have family, when they returned. This tid-bit of information was just "corrected" to me that "I" don't actually live IN a Military town. Although I'm surrounded by 4 major bases, my little town is only like 3 blocks, but this person just has to make a point that I don't mislead you into thinking my friggin' cartoon disk wasn't a Military disk! Sheesh, hope this follower is "happy now" ::ROLLS EYES:: lol (yeah I did just ask this person to look up where I am, I am exactly 40 miles between two major AFB bases.) grrr grumble grumble....

LOL Omg, Ok BBG, you'd love my red stuff.. gotta show you two (and your mom-in-law)lol my vlog, anyway I don't know how sales run state to state, but the purse is Liz Claybourne, on sale at jcpenny, the sale for 40% off, and I had a $15. coupon for a points rewards lol, so, the original price was $40. and I got it for $9. some change! (Hey I shop good trust me I'm poor LOL) Then the two pair of shoes I got that are alike were original $50. but on sale for $34.99 BUT there is a $10. coupon in the newspaper thingie everybody passes up on the way in the door LOL, so that's why I got both colors, the brown & black, for $25. each, really meaning it should of been buy one get one free LOL! BUT... since you can't use both coupons on one sale, I did the sales separate! So the solid black ones that were on sale $28. and I used the $10. sale paper coupon, so they were $18. But added altogether it was about an $80. on my card, had I not had anything on sale or coupon, it would have been a $170.ish worth of stuff spend LOL! So, in actuality, I got a good deal because, I used my ccard, they'll send me another $15. off next month. And those I use every 6 or so months that you're supposed to trade out new pillows LOL to go buy the double pk of pillows that are $15.99 and will get them for a dollar on my card. And the whole cycle starts again, I used my card, so they'll send me another "points" $15. card LOL! Last month I got that purple necklace (in that same folder on fb) and the plaid shirt off the clearance rack for $5. and the other black strappy sandals for $34. I think it came to like $5. on my card because they give $15. gift card for my birthday and a $15. for my points card, so I really got the shoes and the sandals for free that day.

Now if I go into Belks, I wear those big buckled shoes lol because the heel is higher, and I hurt my ankle a few years back and it hurts to wear them long (HEELS ARE A GOOD WAY TO GET YOURSELF OUT OF A STORE QUICKER LOL) plus they're more expensive of a store and that card stays maxed lol but I only use it to get whatever deal they have going on. I crack up at the girls on you tube calling their make up buys "hauls" LOL.. Um, they have NO CLUE what a haul is. My stuff blows theirs away. One girl is like "my Clinique haul" I watch it and she'd paid $18. for a lipgloss but got a lipstick, some moisture wear, wrinkle cream, eyeshadow & mascara n' whatever samples they give out! If they got the $25. deal they'd not think two friggin' make up bags and some samples were a "HAUL" I'll have to show you my channel so you can get a laugh out of the "haul" I bring lol! Actually I can consider my "hauls" free cos my ex never paid child support, now my kid is 33 and I'm getting it so I get it gift wrapped, and everything I need or want, plus the extra perfume that's my fave, for free! Apparently it did me well to bring my kid up alone it's finally paying me back from when I really needed help! Ah, kidding :) it worked out, I need the money more now, cos I married someone who helped me raise him, but it's cool, I don't mind getting my "hauls" now!(omg RED FUR COAT, PETA WOULD KILL ME COS OF IT, BUT AS explained, I got it at a a resell shop for $12. and it's like a $600. rabbit & lamb coat DYED RED) LOL Oh you'd like my "black n' red" vlog! There's some way to monetize you tube too but I can't seem to figure it out just yet. My friend was saying something about they have to invite you, but I'm not sure about that because there wouldn't be a link for it if that were true! It is kinda fun watching some of the things people do, my GOD at the fingernails, mine are horrible LOL and they put drops of water in them then swirl it and dip their nail in them, and pull off the extra and it looks marbleized! I totally love watching them, but I dunno, not the patience for it, and I can't get a video to stop in the 10 minute time frame! We should do the twitter thing to promote each other tho.. and blogger! (too bad I didn't have the new red purse with the coat vlog at the time lol) God I'm rambling a book, sorry LOL! TIRED I think! lol

@Realhousewife - I just had me a nice chocolate Martini - I am feeling pretty good right about now... lol... so yeah... let's party it up Superhubber style.

@Katherella - seems like you know how to shop. I never get that good of hauls for anything that I want. Granted, when I am shopping I usually want the stuff and I don't have a coupon. i am not a good shopping planner at all! That is probably why I don't care for shopping.

Yeah - and where is Q...

My bud light is going down pretty good and I'm just coming up with all kinds of hub ideas. Omg! I could get myself into so much trouble right now! I'll send you my latest greatest idea - LOL!

OMG - I just got your email... and I love you latest hub idea! What do you have in the bud light! Maybe I should have had that instead of the Chocolate Martini... that just made me head spin a little. Those things have like 3 and 1/2 shots of pure alchohol! Boy - can tell I don't drink very often. I think I might have another one again tomorrow. After all, I don't want the half and half to go bad! ;)

I need in on the hub idea! Or just hurry up with it LOL RH: Oh, ew I can't drink bud light, it had to be FULL budWIzER lol. I loved those lil' frogs! :)

Ok well I'm up very late this morning:) I'm sure you can guess I had a little headache! But that drunk hub idea was so worth it! Lol! I can't believe the crap that goes on up in my head sometimes!

I used to drink Budweizer too Kat - I'd steal anything my parents bought! My dad won a cooler full of liquor in a drawing - I was about 15 - the Major never drank - he also didn't notice I stole those bottles one by one until there was nothing but a bottle of anisette left! It was too disgusting to drink - tastes like black licorice! Eeewwwww!

@katherella - I approve every comment unless it is unnecessary spam... if you posted it, it would have gone through. I had a shirt with those frogs... ha ha

@RealHousewife - a whole bottle of asprin and you are back to normal... right... no... okay - you'll be back in no time. and think of how worthwhile it was to come up with some crazy idea. LOL

I have to drink light beer or real alcohol. I just don't care for the heavy beer unless I am already 3 sheets to the wind! Then beggars are no longer choosers... lol

An insightful and straight forward hub. It's not easy making money though but then again I just started and don't have many hubs. I'm trying to get some traffic through to them though :)

@BabyCheetah - thanks for stopping by. If you are new to hubpages, dont' get discouraged. It does take time to earn money. But keep being persistant and you will find this place very addicting.

@raciniwa - Your very welcome. I am glad this helped... although I can't honestly say it helps making the money any easier. Hope you are able to take something good away with this! :)

Thank you for your insights. I am a new hubber, just out of boot camp with a total of 8 hubs - all featured, but am having a hard time with google adsense people. How does one convince them - can we call them some place. The earnings do not start UNLESS adsense is active, is what I have understood from the earning settings. I may be wrong. Could you please help? Thanks
