      Welcome to HubPages, Ardhendu. I wish you all the best. Congratulations on 10 feature articles in such a short time.

      To check on your earnings, go to your Account page then click on Earnings in the bar on top. From there, you can check your Amazon report.

      If you have not already done so, you will want to join the HubPages Earnings Program. To join, you must have a PayPal account, for that is the only way HP pays: through PayPal.

      Google AdSense takes time to be approved. They like to see a lot of quality content. Remember when you use any images that they are in Public Domain, Creative Commons, or clearly state that they are free to use. Then you must provide attributions along with your images. Check out my hubs, or hubs of other members who have been here for awhile, to see the notes below images.

        Thank you so much for your great suggestion. One more query, should i use the original images of mine? I mean to say, can't i use images from google search?

          Certainly you can use your own images. In the Source box, when you choose your image, put your own name in there.

          Using images from Google search is very touchy and tricky. You have to make absolutely sure they are Public Domain. I get my images from Wikipedia, Bing Images, or Flickr Photo Sharing.

            Just to make sure I clarify what I mean by your own images -- these are pictures you took yourself.

            If an image is public domain or creative commons, note that in the source box, such as Wikipedia Public Domain, or Flickr Photo Sharing. You do not have to put in the url to the original image if it is public domain or creative commons.

        A few more tips:

        Every time you submit a hub, your hubber score will drop a little. This is normal. It will rise back up after the new hub is a few days old.

        When you are submitting a hub, be sure and watch the Tips notifications in the box on the top right of the page and follow the instructions.

        When submitting a new hub, check the Display box in the right column. Click on Display Options  to make sure your ads option is ON.  Also, click on Notice to make sure you choose your copyright notice. The copyright will show on the bottom of your hub when you have published.

        In the same area, choose the Hub Group you want your hub to be in. These are groups that you assign for your own use. It is very helpful to have all like hubs in the same group. Example: all your hubs about babies could be in a group titled Parenting. You manage your own groups. This keeps like hubs together and easy to find -- it also will show at the bottom of your hub other hubs in that group so readers can find similar hubs of yours.

        Hope all this helps you. You are a good write and I commend you for wanting to be the best you can be.

      You won't make money on HubPages using Amazon alone.   If your goal is to make money on HubPages, then you must enrol in the HubPages Earnings Program.  However you can't enrol in the Earnings Program unless you have an Adsense account.

      Adsense has a 6 month qualifying period for Indian writers, i.e. you have to be able to show you've been writing online for at least 6 months.  You say you've been writing for a while - if you have an existing blog, you could apply with that.

    To find out your earnings from Amazon, you have to check your Amazon account; it's separate from HubPages. To earn here you have to write Hubs with search-friendly titles that can be found on the Net, about things people search for in the search engine.

      Thank you for this help. I will try to write hubs with search-friendly titles.
