How long did it take you to get your first one hundred bucks from HubPages, and how much writing did you do to get there?
Roughly 7 months but I don't earn as well now as I did them, so that doesn't mean very much.
Well, depending on how many articles do you manage to write and also what quality are they and what their content is (so lots of factors in general ), I would say you definitely need at least 6+, but rather 8-12 months.
For me it took about a year, but I have only written about 30 articles altogether by that time and then I took a longer break. I only came 'back' to writing again, when I realised that my articles started 'working', they are ranking well in Google and they are bringing in readers.
And let me tell you, that is the best feeling .
After two payouts which took a little over a year. Now if you mean first $100 payout? Still waiting, lol !
@Marissa...with the same 55 Hubs or did you keep adding? And do you still make payout every month? Thanks, Ken
Thanks everyone for replying. I like to hear that there is indeed a payout coming and that I'm not doing all this in vain!
Zsobig, are you saying that the articles did a lot better when you came back and got active again? I was wondering about that--whether you could spend a year writing the articles and then not do anything at all and still earn the same on those articles. I wonder if how active you are on HubPages makes any difference to the Google rankings of each Hub.
No, I am not saying that - on the contrary: my articles began to get popular after a few months, and once I have seen this I decided to check back, why is this the case. To be frank, I still haven't found a real answer for how and why does it take several months for an article to get considerably popular, but writing for this site is definitely a long-term 'investment' in my opinion.
But of course, coming back is ALWAYS a good idea, as the views coming within HP itself also make your content more popular, and the more views you get, the more money you can make in the end.
In the history of HubPages, anywhere from nine to eighteen months seems to be the average for "time to earn a first payout."
Took me about 2 years, and I have about 20 hubs but only earn from 2 or three of them.
It took me about a year with 50 hubs. I have been making a payout every other month since that first payout.
