    I've not made any as of yet, but I pretty much just joined. It's nice to see visits from the search engines, though.. That's a good sign of income to come, right?


    So how much have you made from your Hubs with AdSense?

    I've made almost $500 on HubPages since I joined, and another $700+ from my two websites(which I would never have started if I hadn't learned the ropes here).  I know that doesn't sound like a lot for two years, but bear in mind I haven't exactly been slaving over a hot computer(only 74 Hubs).  Besides, the income starts very slowly and improves over time, until eventually it snowballs.  For instance, over $600 of the $700 was earned in the last three months.  And my Hubs are now earning well over $50 a month, whereas they started out at two or three dollars a month.

      Congratulations Marisa! It's great to know you're doing so well.

      I've made $345 in Adsense from Hubpages so far from only a few hubs, none of which were written with Adsense in mind, and only a few of them with cursory keyword research, the rest I just wrote because I felt like it!

        It is really great Caspar that you have earned 345 dollars with hubpages alone from only 23 hubs.... It is marvelous... I think you must have writing very good quality hubs and hubs which are really useful like how to hubs.. I earned 300 dollars in 2 years from 211 hubs. I had to put in a lot of hard work to do that..

    Month 1:(Joined April 22nd) - About $1.79

    Month 2: (Last Month) - $72.75 exactly (Nice 'round' number!)

    This month: $18.26, thus far

    Total: $92.80 - I should reach payout in 2-3 days! big_smile

      I'm at about $90 for 14 months-- learning very slowly about seo, keywords and links- but I've implemented many of the simple suggestions, little by little and the earning curve is rising.
      I enjoy the non-monetary rewards very much.

    To date with AdSense from HubPages: $365.43

    My income with AdSense has almost doubled with the new layout. Also, I've made more than that total with other affiliates and all...

    In terms of making money with AdSense you need to be ranking or getting a decent amount of your traffic from search engines in order to make money (so yes, search engine traffic is a good sign). It's really mostly about the keyword research and then like Marisa said, it begins to snowball and/or grow, especially as you tweak and write more...

    Hope that helps. Best!

    In 2007, I was earning on average $86/month from AdSense from my Hubs.

    In 2008, my monthly average AdSense earnings were $190.

    So far in 2009 my monthly average is out-earning 2008, but historically, the 2nd half of the year is the far more profitable one...

      Even though I have been in Hubpages for 14 months I really never got started until a couple weeks ago.  If there is something I learned about adsense through the years, at least for us is to stop checking earnings all the time.  We check our adsense every 2 weeks.

      Im sure not much of it will be as a result of hubpages just yet but I do know that good keywords and consistancy will put good numbers up.

    I've made $392.05 from Adsense, all from Hub Pages, since I started out. My payout time seems to be cut in half each times. So--about 10 months for the first payout, 5 for the second, 3 for the third, and the next one will be a month and a half.

    I'm not smart about it--I just write here for fun. I don't do any promotions, backlinks, social networking, none of that. I just write what I want in my spare time.

    I was going to try to push to a monthly payout during the HP 100 hubs in 30 days challenge but I got a bunch of freelance projects and went for the quick bucks instead. Some weeks I don't get those, so I didn't finish the challenge, but I think I will be at a monthly Adsense payout by August anyway.

        Mark, I think there's more than 'a little' effort involved! You are kicking ass here, and that's not easy. smile

        I've been falling between two chairs ever since I started writing online--between freelancing and ad revenue. I'm not web-savvy, and I don't enjoy trying to be. I do like to write though, and I can do it fast. So I've been gravitating more toward freelancing for the money and keeping HP for fun and pocket change. But watching you and Lissie I wonder sometimes if I'm making the right choice.

        I know technical tasks are not my strong suit though, so I stick with what I feel good at. It may cause me to go extinct, but that would be no great loss to the world. I'm not freakin' Hemingway. lol

        It's hard to make good choices the way the world is right now. It's hard to know where to expend effort.

  26. frogdropping profile image84
    frogdroppingposted 8 years ago

    I've made a few bucks. Though accidently. It would be nice to work out what I did. Or where I did it.

    And yes Mr Knowles. I do believe you're correct. Though I think it's helpful if you know the 'know-how'. Which I don't.

    I live in hope of an epiphany. But one that involves cash - in case anyone thinks to quote me a psalm or something.

  27. Mark Knowles profile image61
    Mark Knowlesposted 8 years ago

    @ the frog - lol - it is all here if you look. Also - your  google analytics will tell you what you did right - or wrong wink

    @ pam - yes I have the same issue. I did not really do much at hubpages the last year, but I watched my adsense income steadily grow and have now come to the conclusion that the 40% income given up is worth the fact that their authority allows you to rank more easily. I have learned to be more selective about the URLs I create, but I have not changed my writing style.

    BristolBoyposted 8 years ago

    Mark I agree.  I have a few hubs so far and each of them shoudl make me on average $1 a month.  However, the first few I wrote were done with no research SEO etc in mind.  As such when looking at Adwords for some of my phrases/ideas the CPC advised is $0.04 which I believe is default.  However, I have learnt a lot through writing these, and so am doing a bit more research into choosing my titles more wisely with the result that my later hubs are earnign more.  I have also discovered, as I am sure most long standing people on Hubpages have, that some hubs do lot better than others and so if financial reward is the aim it is better to concentrate on these topics.

    @Mr Knowles - back at ya. And all that. I have analytics. Unfortunately - I frogged it. I should have just left it be. It's kind of gone a little funky. It works. I touched a few buttons here and there - I somehow managed to link adsense in following a fellow hubbers destructions.

    But from that point on - the jobs knacked. Nothing shows up. It's flat lines everywhere. Everytime I have a peek it's like being inside an unsuccessful A & E department ...

    I'm going to have to write something about you Mr Knowles. Perhaps something deliciously wicked. Or even factual.

      Oh God. I just integrated Analytics yesterday and today, my Adsense is flatlined and all the stats are wrong. Page impressions completely wrong. I have another hubpage account with about 20 hubs that I added to the same Analytics account as well and the Adsense stats for that seem to be fine, but this one? Completely hosed. It's like it just stopped counting. I actually feel a bit sick to my stomach since until today I'd been rocking the Adsense all month.

    This month I really made a nice jump. The fact that I was putting out 30+ hubs a month since feb and then the 60+ from the hubchallenge has probably had a lot to do with it. I'm now making $10+ per day consistently so far this month just on Adsense from hubs. My best day ever was $17 earlier this week.

    I am now looking at affiliate links too in the hope of increasing my earnings, (although mostly I do this for fun with little other than what I know going into my hubs.)

    Yes,  You certainly do have a lot of fun-- so do I, but I don't mind a little pocket money. I signed up to have proceeds deposited to a a bank account-- so I have been getting pennies at a time-- but it is  finally turning into dollars.

    I can see that a few tiny adjustments can make a difference, and slow and steady begins to add up. You have to like it 'for the fun' for a long time, before it also pays unless you are knowlegeble and truly focused on finding the monetary rewards from the outset.

      waynetposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Hi Julie.

      It might be well worth putting NFL in the hub titles or something that is more specifically related to NFL, it can sometimes be all in the title, however you do have some NFL google ads that say NFL tickets.

      If fans of NFL find your hub article they'll instantly know the names of the NFL players, but then if it's someone just wanting information on NFL players then they might need a title indicator of...NFL.

      I did a quick search through googles adword tracker tool and there are lots of good NFL keyword suggestions there.

      nfl posters
      nfl matches
      nfl betting
      nfl playoffs
      nfl tickets

      The above ones are estimates of over £1 per click, but even some of the others are worth getting in there from over 50 pence a click.

      You've blasted out some great hub article series, I just wish I had more time in the day to read half of them...

    June was a great month £42, July will prob end about £20 but yesterday I got 9p  from 7 clicks. Jeeeez 1p clicks should be banned, hardly worth it really.

    Gonna skip the 30 day challenge and concentrate instead on keyword values instead of just keywords. You can make money on google but I sure as hell am not writing crap for 1p, my crap is worth 10p at least, doncha think smile

    Btw if you write a Hub and notice you are getting good money over those days, don't write another Hub until the money eases off as I have found doing another Hub actually kills off the money from the good current one !

    If you have no intent to buy something you will make future clicks worth less. The value of a click from a webpage is in part determined by how much clickers buy. It's called "Smart Pricing."

    And as London Girl said it can get your adsense account canceled. And maybe the poor person, whose ads you clicked.

      I have to admit that I do not understand this whole internet advertising thing altogether. I always thought advertising is not only a means to trigger buying (or selling) but also to provide information. I once got information about a specialised 'travel agency' through a click on a google-ad. However, I am pretty sure that I did not 'buy' the product in the same online session. (If I remember correctly I wrote an e-mail directly to the supplier days or even weeks later and decided later to buy the service). So how does google (or the advertiser) decide which click is of value and which not?

      The same holds true for amazon affiliate links. I am an avid buyer of books using amazon. However, I think I never bought books at amazon via affiliate links although I get a lot of hints about interesting books by reading interesting blogs and seeing respective amazon links. Maybe I should change this behaviour and reward my favorite bloggers by buying books through their links?
