I earned a sizeable chunk less than that in my first 32 days, and has been said already, it takes time.
Initially I wrote about 50 hubs over 8 months or so (prior to the Hubpages Ad Program), then was rather dispirited after a few months of the ad program but couldn't think of anything to write about that was going to be good. Then I spent a while tweaking hubs; odd words here n there, new pictures, sometimes complete overhauls. I think the thing that helped the most was getting rid of hubs that simply weren't getting the views.
Now I have 27 hubs (up from 22, post-culling) and while I don't exactly earn a living, I do get paid every month or two. This is from what I feel to be a rather minimal effort on my part.
So when it says "day" and it say 3 under that column, does that mean 3 new ppl that hour and then it says 4, does it mean 4 new ones the following hour or does it mean you gained one more the following hour?
You can't, but HP keeps track at all times (until it freezes!).
So they know you got a visit at midnight, 2, 3 and 5 o'clock. They just count them up.
So at 10 AM Tuesday they simply count all visits between 10AM Monday and 10AM Tuesday, then report that figure. By do so doing those views that had been reported at 9AM, and that were received between 9 and 10AM Monday, drop off the count while those received between 9 and 10AM Tuesday are added.
Mine are showing issues - it's time to look for copied hubs again. Whenever I see dramatic drops in high-performing hubs, they've been copied. Again.
Sadly - they just plain don't recover afterward - at least not so far. The views drop quickly, and it takes forever to get the copied sites removed (plural). And the hub(s) are tanked afterward. Not sure if I have the time or energy to keep tracking those things.
Marcy, You reminded me of something I need to do too. I last checked almost a year back. Just wanted to ask you how you check duplicate content. I use Premium copyscape and still not very satisfied with the results. It is going to be quite a task to check all the Hubs and get the copied content removed.
I am doing it the tedious, manual way - I put a small clip (phrase) in quotes and search for it in Google. It's getting to be very discouraging - finding more and more, every day, and traffic dropping after it grows.
Also - I just found a 'Hubber" here with a new account and no content who has the same username on Squidoo and has stolen at least two hubs - one of mine, and one from another Hubber. I flagged the profile and explained why I think she's copying things. Hope they see the same issues and nuke her.
Doing it the manual way is quite tedious and not accurate. However, you can still catch some culprits. Adding more content to hubs and rewriting the summary based on search keywords have helped me gain traffic to stolen hubs. You can try that too!
In the beginning, you would be getting less amount. but never get disappointed because after sometime this money will surely increase. I have gone through the same phase but now i am earning a good amount fro Hubpages Earning program.
Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that...
Hi friends, In earning reports, we have two columns-1.my earnings and 2. Balance history.I want to know, 1. whether the amount shown in the 'my earning' column is after deducting hubpages portion(40%) of the income?2....
Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
