I check on it once a week as this leaves me with more time to do other more important things, all of my channels are there to track everything so it's all a point of checking weekly to see what clicks and impressions I have gained from what sites.
I used to check it every five minutes, but I soon got fed up of this, so I made it a conscious decision to work on other things that was more productive and the main thing was content creation.
I check my Adsense several times a day. I also have a little program running in my taskbar called SysSense. You can set this to check your Adsense at intervals such as every 5 mins, then it pops up and tells you your daily/monthly total. When I first started with Adsense I set it to make a Kerching! sound whenever the amount changed, but that would be way too annoying now.
I think if you are just writing for HubPages and then considering how much you can earn from Adsense then you should write about topics that are likely to show high paying ads.
For example, you can make a lot more if you do product reviews. Because people running those ads are paying more than $5-10 to google. In some cases will over $50, because in return they make a lot more. For example if you are doing Iphone reviews you know the person running those ads are talking about Iphone so any ads related to selling iphone will bring you better clicks even if Hubpages keep a % of it..
Great Post. I learned about two writing sites and a Google Adsense Tool. Also info about monetization with product reviews were great also.
I have a routine each week day morning:
Check Google Email Account Check Yahoo Email Account Check Earnings on eHow Check Number of total visitors to all hubs combined Check Number of Hubpages written Update Profile with prior two data Check Comments Check for Broken Links Check Affiliate Settings for Google Adsense Earnings Check Amazon earnings Check eBay earnings
Check Q&A Check Hubtivity Read about Hubbers and Hubs respond with comments Visit Forum for responses under any replies I made
Write relevant articles on Hubpages keeping in mind goal of 520 Write relevant articles on eHow, moderator of group Share the Web
Repeat the following morning resolving to write more content and update topics for more visitors. Google likes it when I write relevant content daily and I like when my fans increase because of my interaction with their hubs.
Weekends off unless I want to distribute hubpages to social media networking sites. Works fine.
Be fair, not everyone gets the hang of hubpages on the first shot.
but, if you think about it, if one is strictly trying to just get in get out and make some money... targeted keywords and bulk content for SE placement, but no substance does do well for adsense. Though I don't think the author actually intended for that.
i check once a day, but have yet to have any money in them, i don't think anybody's clicking on my ads, or i don't have enough visits, so fell free to enter my sites http://hubpages.com/profile/Klniksta
If you are only getting $.01 then you are smartpriced. You might have adsense on some sites that aren't good and then all of your adsense clicks will only be worth $.01, so take adsense off sites like that and then your other sites will earn more per click.
I check mine way to frequently! If I could check my adsense earnings from my blackberry, I'd be all set. If anyone could tell me of a program for my blackberry that could somehow do this; I'd love you forever!
Oh, and I also just installed that SysSense program that someone was talking about on here. I hear the "Ka-Ching!" noise everytime I earn money...it's going to get annoying eventually, but for now, I love it!
Does anyone know if there are any issues with using Syssense? Is it against Adsense's terms of conditions? Also is it ok to give out my Adsense details to a thrid party (i'm assuming this is how it works) and also what are teh security risks associated with this?
Sometimes daily. Sometimes every few days. Sometimes twice a day (morning then night). All depends on when I think about it, and if I can remember when the last time I checked was and what my earnings were the last time.
Usually, once I reach $100, the frequency at which I check is lessened to a few times a week. Then towards the end of the month (generally the last few days), I will check daily to see if I've reached my goal. I finally reached it last month; I've been lingering closer and closer for the past few months.
well is do check that out from your inside Google adsense account,?well with my 5 new articles I got increse $1 I dont know whether it is from my hubpages ,my own site or flixya.I need to deactivated 1 I think to check where the revenue come from
Mrvoodoo - Why, yes! I was just diagnosed with this two days ago. Glad to know I'm not the only sufferer out there!
I finally figured out how to view my adsense earnings on my blackberry smartphone, so now I'm in real trouble! (For those of you that'd like to do this, download the Opera mini-browser....it'll allow you to access adsense, unlike the regular blackberry browser)
I just turned off Kontera a few days ago after realizing that their ad links do not open up in a new window. (Adsense ads do). If a viewer clicks on a Kontera ad, they won't have a chance to click on your higher paying adsense ads, because they'll be on a new page.
Ever since I turned Kontera off, I've been earning an extra .50 cents a day from adsense...not sure if it's coincidence, but so far I'm glad I turned Kontera off.
When I first started with adsense a few years ago I would refresh the dam page every 5 minutes to still see the same zero.Then when I started earning a little bit I would refresh every 2 minutes. Trust me it was...
Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I...
Yesterday I had more of a pay from adsense then I do today. Instead of increasing they decreased my pay amount, is this because one of my hubs need to be revised? What's the deal with this, any help and knowledge is...
Okay, today I have noticed drastic decrease in page impressions and record low earnings in my adsense account. I had not thought before today that google algorithm change will have such a effect on our traffic and...
Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
