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....
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...
Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with...
