I have received my first Google Ad sense check after 3 good years. I do not know why my Blogs and hubs perform so poorly when it comes to Ad sense. Am expecting my second cheque after 3 or 4 years. Any ideas out there what I can do to improve this situation?
Don't feel bad, in April of this year I'll have been here for three years and last time I checked I've still got a ways to go before I hit the "target" for an AdSense payout. I gave up obsessing about it a long time ago. When it happens, it happens.
Patkay - congratulations! It's great news that you reached such a rare milestone on HP. As FatFreddysCat said, I'll be happy when it happens...when it happens. I'm on my third year and have yet to see my first AdSense payout. Getting a few cents closer every day. It will be a nice surprise when I get there.
I used to receive pretty regular payments from Adsense, but that all stopped a couple years ago, and truth be told, I am kind of unhappy about it. I used to get about $100 a month, which was a nice little sum. I saved up the money and used it for trips, and shopping, fun money. Now, I get almost nothing from Adsense, and my HP earnings aren't quite there yet. It is getting better these past few months, so I am hopeful. Congrats on the payout!!
Anna, I have a website that used to earn $300 a month with Adsense. I now struggle some months to earn payout. Last summer there were a few that I didn't. I'm not sure advertisers are using Adsense like they once did.
That was quite a good money you were making. Times do change because also for me, there is a time I used to get paid monthly, now it is either 2 or 3. But as you have said, I have noted some improvements too.
Sometimes it is sketchy. There are a lot of things that factor in and a lot that can go wrong. I know people with websites outside of this venue who have experienced problems when they know that they should be earning.
Congratz on receiving a check!!! .... I'm newish on here I haven't received my first payout yet (nowhere near close). Even so, maybe you need to expand your topics (such as cooking, electronics, etc.), I'm thinking about doing how-tos and seasonal topics, maybe you can do that too.
You're from Kenya right? Maybe you can do a hub, on the top visitor/tourists spots of Kenya, or talk about Kenyan food or its history. Spice your hubpages up Good luck!!
Congratulatios! I may be on a similar timeline, if not longer, the way I'm going. But I love HP and love browsing through hubs and learning new things every day. I will stop by your blog and see what you're writing. Keep it up.
A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP....
I just received last week my first Google Adsense payout last week May 29, 2009. It took me about ninetenn months to reach my first payout. I started Hubpages first as a writing ministry, most of my hubs are...
It has taken 2 years, but I just got an email letting me know I had been paid from HubPages. I gazed at that email with pride for ages, even stroked the screen a couple of times with affection!I am pretty sure it will...
