    I am soo happy, I have reached 500,000 views. I am aiming for 1 million before the end of the year. How many views do you have and what are your expectations? Tips on how to drive more traffic and increase the $$$$$ are also welcome.

      Congratulations. With 500,000 views, how much have you cashed out, Patkay?

        At least nowadays I get payout every month. I relly on HP Ad Program. I have not cashed out that much but is something above 500 $.

              How long does it take to make your first payment and how much you earn monthly?

                It took me around 7 months to reach my first payout. My earnings vary between $ 50 - 70. But there is a time I had a good month with a cool $100.

                  Hello Patkay and congratulations on hitting the half million views mark. I still believe there ought to be a milestone marker between 100,000 and 1,000,000 views. Some people don't care but I do! And it is a long long wait in between.

                  Glad to hear you're making money. My views are slowly inching upward from the 100,000 mark. It is around 133,000 at this point and I'm noticing that most views are coming from Google, Ask and Bing now rather than internally. YEA!

                  Yes, I'm getting a small payout from the HP ad program. Still waiting on the Google Adsense since I have yet to reach the $100 mark. (I'm at $97 now so maybe a couple of more years. LOL)

                  smile

                    PegCole17, a couple of years before you catch up with the  3 dollars to make a payout ... I wish google adsense was much better than this. I am glad that HP came up with their HP ads otherwise I would still be waiting for my first payout.

                    I can see you are also doing great and I agree with you that we need an accolade in between problably at 500,000. Thanks for your visit.

    Congratulations, Paykay!

    Isn't it wonderful when you finally reach that tipping point and begin to see significant traffic?? I'm so happy for you. big_smile

      Sure Simone Smith, it is a wonderful thing. I recall when I started writing at HP I was wondering if anyone would bother reading my articles. HP has taught me a lot, I enjoy being here, thanks to the HP team and everyone else who have made it happen.

        Thank you Patkay,

        But, have you seen my hub profile score, it's only 8 now. I don't know how to increase this score buy I'm trying my best.

        1. Patkay profile image89
          Patkayposted 3 years ago in reply to this

          The hubscore should not worry you much. The most important thing is to provide high quality articles.

    Hey way to go, how about recomending Clickbank products or a webpage in where you are recomending a Clickbank, CJ or Amazon product?!

      Hi thanks troy0619, I have not used both clickbank and amazon products, not that I do not like them but because I do not know how to go about it.

          You can't use Clickbank on HP, they banned it ages ago.

            No but you can still add a link to a webpage in where you are selling or recomending a clickbank product smile

              True although it is important to be careful because according to the FAQ's section, hubs written purely as a teaser to get a reader to go to another site are against the rules smile

    Well done Patkay. That is a great achievement. I think 500,000 deserves an accolade.

      Thanks seanorjohn. I concur with your views about an accolade. Imagine from 100k to 1m. It is a long journey.

    Congratulations, Patkay on your great progress. That is wonderful. I'm approaching 8,800 views after about five months on hp. My goal is to reach 10,000 in a couple months and see first payout in May.  Keep up the excellent work, very cool cool

    Congratulations Patkay. Allow me to put you on my list of Role Models. My hopes have received a 'shot in the arm' and my vision now sees light at the end of the tunnel. Keep it up (and especially your knack for inspiring).
