    I know, big deal; but it is to me.
    This is the first time I've earned over $1 for my hubs - whoop, whoop!!

    Did anyone else get this excited over so little money?

        Yes, it is a big deal. Congratulations. There are others who are earning so little they cannot mention. Keep the good work going.

    I don't want to make anyone jealous, but I have earned .29 cents already this month alone. If anyone needs any tips on success, don't be afraid to ask. Even with this level of success, Im still very approachable.

      Approaching you tentatively…I can't seem to get a straight answer..to get twenty nine wonderful cents, how may views did you need for what length of time?

      1. Writer Fox profile image79
        Writer Foxposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        The amount you earn on the HP Ad Program is calculated daily.  So, you earn daily.  The Ad Program is based on CPM, which means that it is based on so much money per 1,000 views.  If you only have 100 views per day, you will still earn a prorated portion. The CPM varies widely and daily, because it depends upon what advertisers are willing to pay for the subjects you write about. It could be $2 per thousand views or $12.  In addition, you earn money for affiliates such as Amazon, eBay and others you might choose.  Amazon and eBay pay only when someone buys something.

    I have just started the money earning part. Not anywhere close to a $1 yet. High hopes that one day I will! Congratulations.

  8. MagKaye profile image76
    MagKayeposted 3 years ago

    Thanks for all the encouraging words, everyone. I landed up making 3 whole dollars in October! Yeppers - $3!

    Oddly my hubs have suddenly taken off in the past month and are getting loads of views. Weird that it's all of a sudden, but I did read on the forum that, for some reason, October seems to be a good month on HubPages.

    Good luck to everyone else and thanks again for the responses!

    CandyTaleposted 3 years ago

    Yes, I did! 

    When I saw my first 0.10 after a few days of being approved for adsense I even did a victory dance. Now I have a little more than USD 1.00 in my account.

    It feels good to know this may work, even if it takes a very long term to actually earn a decent amount.

    Yes, because it's a big step in the right direction.  It gets you motivated to write more and promote Hubs when you realize there is money to be made doing so.  Good Luck!

      Thanks! You're right, it does motivate one to write more. Just when I thought it was pointless and nobody was reading the hubs...

    A big congrats!
    These milestones, whether big or small, keep us motivated that someone is reading our words.
    For some that is all that matters, and for some (like me), it is that someone is reading, and that I'm making a bit of income smile
    Keep it up!

    It was a milestone for me too. I was earlier frustrated at the meagre cents that were coming in every day.

  16. Solaras profile image92
    Solarasposted 3 years ago

    Yes, $1 a day is yummy good money!

    Sounds like some folks have been experiencing an upswing in views.  Mine have doubled over last month during this last week. I was not sure if it was due to a few Editors Choice additions on my account or just a general trend. 

    How are everyone's overall views doing? When things were off in August everyone was very vocal.  I don't hear the complaints anymore.

    1. MagKaye profile image76
      MagKayeposted 3 years ago in reply to this

      Not quite on $1 per day, but so far this month I have made $2.50.
      There has definitely been an increase in views of my hubs over the past month. One hub has been viewed 1000 times. So odd, compared to July/August's views.

    Congratulations!
    That's definitely exciting!
    I haven't even come close to getting a payout yet. I have earned somewhere in the neighbourhood of $1.75, but that's a culmination of about 8 months worth of earnings. lol. I would be over the moon if one of my hubs earned me a big ol' loonie. lol.  I posted a hub about two days ago and it made me a whole nickel richer in about 24 hrs. I told me husband "My hub earned a nickel in the last 24 hours!" And he just blinked at me. Lol. He doesn't get it quite the way everyone on here seems to. smile

    Keep plugging away everyone!

      I'm rich, I tell you...
