      Congrats, Sheri! It took me about a year to see a payout also. Actually, I think it took longer than that. Now I'm seeing a payout every other month. I only post once or twice a month, so I'm pleased that I'm consistently earning.

      Well done, that first payout is always the best no matter how long it takes, You wait till you start getting one or two a month!!, Should spur you on to write some more I guess.

    Way to go!!!
    Reaching the first payout is great, and will probably urge you to write even more hubs... believe me, I know smile.
    And also, I can tell you it will get even better once you manage to make it the 2nd, the 3rd time and so on...
    Happy hubbing! smile

    Great, I have 118 hubs and an have not had a payout. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

      Hi Rebecca, I was surprised to see your comment.
      Are you close to payout? With your titles, and hub quality, it should not take that long. You are signed up for the Adsense program, right?
      Usually when someone has that many hubs and does not reach payout in the time you have been here, they have odd titles that no one bothers to search for. That is no the case with your articles.

      1. Rebecca Furtado profile image76
        Rebecca Furtadoposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Yes I have done that. I am not sure what I am doing wrong.

          Have you signed up to the HP Earnings Program?     Most people (though not all) find that pays better than just Adsense.

          Other things to check:

          - Are you sure you've set up your Adsense account properly?   If you log in to Adsense, you should see at least a few cents being earned by Hubs.

          - Did you ever get a PIN from Adsense to activate your Adsense account?   It is sent to your home address by ordinary mail.  If you don't get it and enter it within a certain time, your account stops earning.   

          - Have you checked to make sure your Adsense ID is showing in your Earnings settings here on HubPages?

      Don't feel bad Rebecca. I have 102 hubs and not even half way to payout yet. Going on my comments on my hubs they are very good so it doesn't seem a matter of quality. I have only been in Adsense for about 4 months though.

    Congrats Sheri! It is a fantastic achievement. Reaching payout is always difficult to begin with but once you reach it the first time, it becomes a lot easier after that. Well done and looking forward to more of your hubs! Stay motivated and you should reach payout even faster and maybe even every month. smile
