I have been writing on HubPages for 5 1/2 years. I have had a great week this past 7 days, and I was just reviewing my lifetime earnings. Going strictly by HP Ad Program earnings, this past week was my best week ever, and it includes some of my best days ever! I have earned more by a couple of Amazon sales in the past.
That's awesome, Sherry! I've been at HubPages about the same length of time as you. I had been hitting payout every month for a while, but the past half a year or so, it has gone down to every other month. I haven't been very active the past couple of years, so maybe that's part of it. I'd like to get back into it more, so maybe that will help when I do. Still, I've enjoyed my time here, and I do enjoy seeing that my hubs are still getting views and that I'm still making a bit. Keep it up, Sherry! I'm happy for you!
Things do seem to be back to normal after that whole Fred fiasco. Congrats on your best earnings week ever, I usually do well when other hubbers do well.
Personally last year's June was my breakthrough month and as of the 15th I've already surpassed June 2016 in terms of ad earnings so things are looking up, even CPMs are nearly what they were last year around this time.
Your success is giving others hope so I hope it continues and gets even better.
Good for you, Sherry. Hopefully this trend will continue for you.
Last month was the biggest number of page views I have ever had on HP. It actually shocked me! I hit a milllion views awhile back, and am already have earned another 332,000. If this keeps up, I should hit 2 million at the end of this year or the beginning of 2018.
I was doing OK with payouts, but when I switched to Adsense daily amounts either doubled or tripled most days. So I am a very happy camper (pardon the pun lol)
I was told a long time ago that once views start adding up, the next batch comes much faster...and I am finding that to be true...so,let's hope you're on your way to great success here.
I started with Adsense late in April and since then income has continued to increase. I will admit that it is very weird knowing that page views are not the basis for payment,though. I had one day this month where I got almost 5,000 views and another day when I got 2900. I made more income on the smaller amount! Go figure!
I wasn't too sure if this has been the best week I've ever had, then I checked the same time last year all the way back and saw that I'm getting more than tripled this year compared to the last few years. I knew things were looking up, noticed a marked improvement lately, all around. Although, I think I'll go back and check some other months.
Good news, glad to hear it. Your results are symptomatic of the increases many writers are currently experiencing on HP, thanks to the niche sites reaping rewards for hard work, persistence, some spot-on editing and all round better quality.
I have to agree, currently having my best earning week. Views had been increasing but then got slapped back recently. Today's figures were a real surprise. It's great to know other folk are having success. I guess you have to be in for the long haul, which is why evergreen hubs are important.
I have had, to put it generously, extremely few sales from Amazon over the years, and this week, I almost fell over backwards out of my chair, when my Amazon earnings showed a massive uptick; mostly from just a single sale!! It was more than all my prior Amazon earnings combined!
I rubbed my eyes, really hard, opened them, and looked again. Then, I looked at the earnings report to make sure it was 'audited' and finalized, and it was! Woo-Hoo! This will allow me to reach payout threshold more than just once a quarter, for a change!
This is what makes us hubbers often wish we could have a way to see which hub in particular led to the click-through and the eventual purchase. ...
Thank you, Paul. I'd like to take this moment to let you know how much I appreciate the efforts of the team to save this site by creating the niche sets. That was a stroke of genius! I know it hasn't worked for some, but for those who have found success as a result, it has been wonderful. You,Robin and the team are greatly appreciated.
I seem to have come to HP just before all the changes. I have put in almost F/T hours on the days I write my hubs. I've read whole books, not only the ones I review, but for material for my hubs. I think what I write is...
I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April...
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....
For me October has been the best Adsense month to date - will have made payout in one month for the first time. Yeay!!!Amazon has had the most amount of sales, but not the highest value, month yet (will be hard to...
Hi Folks,Can anyone make it crystal clear to me, step-by-step, how to switch from the Hubpages Ad Program back to just plain ol' Adsense? I'm showing my aging brain, but I'm not sure what to do, and don't want to mess...
