      LOL Pam.  Most of my days are 0-cent days.  And after 18 months, I still haven't hit a payout!  Thank some god that I don't rely on HP for an income, but then, I've never put myself into it like you and others have.  You know, the world hiccups every now and again, especially when it's tagging along with Google.  Let's just all keep laughing hysterically.

    So it's weird for me to have a 0 day.

      Geeze, that is a long time... Luckily, I get a lot of fun in writing these hubs and being a part of this awesome community with all you wonderful hubbers, so I won't be going anywhere soon, despite the lack of monetary support :p

      I've been trying to read up on all those hubs filled with tips on cashing in on hubs, but there's SO much information! It's a bit overwhelming.

      And I'm sure today is just a fluke, pgrundy. No doubt, you'll be rakin' in the dough tomorrow.

      The first few days of July were amazingly awful for me.  I had a couple of - like - $2 days.  I don't remember how many hours into the day it took to get a few cents.  Maybe I had 21 cents or something for several hours before it "jumped way up" to the $2 and change.  I do know I was wondering if I'd done something wrong to get a "black mark" (or something).

      I totally agree. I can't remember a day in the last couple of years that I had zero AdSense earnings. I may have had days here or there that were just a few pennies, but never zero. August generally is the high 'vacation' month, but still....zero? Was that just HP earnings, or overall?

    We have 0 cents days more often than we would like!
    However, your note of your 'normal' earnings is encouraging.
    We are trying to get better with words used, but we like to balance being clever with just writing for fun.
    Both of us have occasional 'nudges' from our families about our lack of earning.  We try not to be annoyed, and just carry on trying harder.

    Don't think we'll ever fully understand Google!

      It'll probably end up being one of $3 or $4 days for you like I had the first few days of July.  I don't think I had an over-$6 until at least 10 days into July.  The second half of July redeemed itself, and by the end of the month July was comparable to June.  I had excellent first three days of August when a lot of people said August is slow.  I don't think any of us can be really sure of what will happen until it happens.   smile

    My clicks have GREATLY reduced in price...I'm hoping that I'm not smart priced and that advertisers are just paying less (crossing fingers). My earnings have run down to about $2 a day for the last week or so which is terribly low compared to a month or so of steady, solid earnings of 3-4x that amount.

        Where's Lissie when we need her? 

        I think you get "smart priced" when you put Adsense on a blog that's not getting a decent amount of traffic.  Google gets snippy and decides you're not doing the right thing, and reduces your rate of pay.

        1. profile image0
          pgrundyposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Yikes! I do host a low traffic blog. I checked it and I did initially set it up for Adsense so I took the ads off it. I didn't recall even doing that, but it sat for a long, long time unused.

          Geez. Now I'm dizzy. sad

        2. Mrvoodoo profile image61
          Mrvoodooposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          I believed that you got smart-priced if you sent a lot of traffic through to advertisers that never converted, i.e. the advertisers never make a sale from the traffic you send them (poor quality traffic). Although there are probably all manner of variables that influence this.

          I wouldn't worry about it, it's disappointing, but tomorrows another day. smile

        girly_girl09posted 7 years ago in reply to this

        It is a really grey area that everyone who talks about it will give different information. Google doesn't say exactly what will get you smart-priced, but a known factor is producing low-quality traffic for advertisers. (I'm wondering if a few of my entertainment tv hubs are doing this...if so, totally not worth it as they earn measly amounts anyways). I turned the ads down on those hubs and I should know within a week if it helps.

        I'm hoping that I'm worrying for nothing at all and the reason why my clicks are so cheap is because advertisers are holding back right now... If you're experiencing the same thing at the exact same time, perhaps we are just earning less because of advertiser's budgets. Time will tell...keep your fingers crossed! big_smile

        I'm having exactly the same problem this month, with very similar figures. It's a relief to know I'm not the only one! I did have a big spike of social traffic recently that didn't convert well at all and I was seriously afraid I'd been smart priced, but if it's happening to others, maybe it's just a low paying month or something.

    I just checked my earnings for today and I'm at a piddly 12 cents for today, but they have been down for maintenance, maybe everything will suddenly catch up? (fingers crossed)....it's been a slow August for me.  I reached my first payout in July..hope to see that money by the EOM.  At 12 cents it's going to take me months to see the second one.

    I've only been 5 weeks here in Hubpages but my July earnings were like $20+ already. Made me excited. But this August, so far, haven't reached $1.00 yet and for the past 3-4 days my earnings were like 0. But then again, have not been focusing on creating hubs for traffic. So I guess, that would explain that.

  23. SweetiePie profile image85
    SweetiePieposted 7 years ago

    Earnings fluctuate from time to time also.  Right now a lot of people are at the beach, per reading Facebook and Twitter, so traffic often drops down too.  I found when I write my summer time hubs it spikes again.

    1. girly_girl09 profile image76
      girly_girl09posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Very true. I was thinking of doing some camping accessory hubs. If I don't get around to it this summer, I'll definitely write a bunch next spring to prepare for the summer months!

      Also, I am slightly concerned because my traffic isn't drastically low (it was a week ago...but now is back to somewhat normal levels). The number of clicks are pretty much the same, the earnings per click are just so much lower. 

      Oh and back to the traffic - I do recognize the fact that my traffic definitely isn't increasing, whereas before my traffic would continuously increase even if no new hubs were published. So, in a way, traffic has slowed down a lot, even though the overall hits per day isn't dropping too much, it's just not increasing like before. If that makes sense....lol

  24. SweetiePie profile image85

    My hub was mostly about sunblock and hair products.  If you like the beach you could write hubs on that topic too.  Princessa always has some really cute ideas for summer hubs.

    Nelle Hoxieposted 7 years ago

    If you have been smart priced there really isn't much you can do anyway.

    Opinions are really split as to whether you should take adsense ads off of low-traffic pages. Because low-traffic can be high-converting traffic if it's targetted traffic.

    I've been making a monthly payout with google since the first month it went live. But you wouldn't believe how it has varied from month to month over that period.

    1. girly_girl09 profile image76
      girly_girl09posted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Very true, I am wary of changing the ads on hubs, however with these particular hubs, I get tons of clicks on them each day and I think it was because of the layout of the hub. I'd imagine that many ads for 'watch tv online for free' lead to those satellite services that everyone knows don't work and therefore the target ads are probably not very high-converting. Those hubs don't make too much anyways (they just get the most clicks), so I think it's worth it to test a low adsense setting on them...actually I think I put it at medium.

      I don't feel as old as I feel stupid, because I know I could be earning a whole lot of more.  Then again, I'm stupid because I choose to be.  If I don't know something it's because I never really wanted to know it.   smile   I'm a writing-type and ponderer of the world's issues.  It's hard to care about SEO when you don't give a rat's bottom about it.     smile

    revenue will vary, some days you earn more than others. don't worry about it unless it continues. I average out each day pretty nice, but if I'm noticeable short one day compared to the previous, I just shrug it off as it just means that day the people who saw my stuff didn't see anything they felt like clicking to see more. It happens.



    Traffic is great for potential earnings, but high traffic doesn't necessarily mean high earnings.

    One thing I read recently is that google is now factoring in the clickers viewing history, not just the quality of your hub, so drawing in someone who clicks alot will earn you less than drawing in someone who rarely clicks, or often buys.

      Ever since I started back in May, the whole thing has seemed way too good to be true. lol But, I am confident that advertisers will start spending more (maybe not much more, but something!) in the last quarter. I believe that they'll feel forced to make up for lack of advertising in prior '09 quarters.

    I've not seen a drop in revenue this summer like I usually have, and I've had too much travel going on to participate in any of the Hub challenges. 

    In fact, every time a Hub challenge starts up, I start to earn more.  50% of what I make every day is coming from Hubs belonging to people on my referral list.

    Google Profits Rise in First Quarter 2009  Thursday, 16 July 2009 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/8154955.stm

    Chief executive Eric Schmidt said: "These results highlight the enduring strength of our business model and our responsible efforts to manage expenses."

    Google earned $5.36 a share, excluding certain items, better than the $5.08 per share forecast by analysts.

    Sameet Sinha, an analyst with JMP Securities said: "The numbers are good. Revenue was in line with expectations, and strong operating efficiencies were brought about by the new chief executive."

    "It definitely shows that Google is a best-of-breed company for online advertising, and it's a must buy."

    But Ross Sandler, an analyst at RBC Capital, described the results as mixed."Overall, the focus is on what's going to happen in the second half."

    Shares in the firm Google gained 1% to $442.60 on but later dropped 2.4% in after-hours trade.

    Paid clicks - which include clicks related to ads served on Google sites and the sites of AdSense partners - were 15% higher year-on-year, but 2% less than in the first quarter


    Long quote, I know, but worth a read. I didn't like the 'the focus is what will happen in the second half' bit. The rest though is encouraging.

    My revenue is fine- as long as I don't make any mistakes, which I often do, fiddling around with stuff. But then I'm learning and there is always a price.

    Have not received a penny as yet. I have been a bit laxed in writing these days, concentrating on a book for print.
