I have been a member in HP for quite some time, but active in the past 6 months.I have posted 17 hubs so far.
I notice from my Adsense account that my no. of ad clicks to page views is 1 per 57 which seems to be very low. My earnings from HP is next to nothing.
I don't bother much about SEO, hot subjects, back links or promotions. But that's the case with my writing in other sites too.
But in another site where I have been writing for almost 21 months, I am getting 1 click to 30 page views. I have not added any new articles in the other site for several months now; I am now writing more here, with the hope that I will pick up more traffic and more income. But so far no success. There is also a huge difference in page views I get there and here. (Too low here).
Any ideas and opinions? How do you people fare in the ratio of ad clicks to page views?
There in lies the problem, especially back links. You appear to be a member of numerous sites to publish your content. Spend the time and link them together and try to get some of your stuff on the first page of Google.
Take HubPages for example, if your Hub has a score of 75 or higher, all the links become "do follow". As long as you aren't overly promotional with your links in your Hub(only 2 allowed per domain you link to), it can be a great tool to promote your other stuff.
There are many hubs written about this subject which will help. Search for hubs on 'Keywords', 'SEO' and 'Adsense' and many of those are tailored towards hubpages specifically.
I write in Howtodothings.com (Adsense revenue share 50%)
CV, could this be your choice of topic at Howtodothings? I assume they require you to write about how to do things! "How to" articles tend to do well with Adsense, because they are, by nature, more commercially oriented.
Have you written any "how to" Hubs? Are their earnings comparable?

One or two of my hubs can be fitted to "How to" catagory. But my daily average traffic is yet to cross even 35 visits on all articles put together(shame on me!) here. And more than half of this is internal traffic!
Like Helium, I have also started enjoying Hubpages. (You remember, it's you who brought me here). I believe the future could be bright at Hubpages, because it seems to be 1 step ahead in Technology when compared to Helium, AC or Suite101. But as of now, I am not yet convinced of my earning capacity here.
At Howtodothings, with 29 articles, I am regularly making about $25+ a month nowadays, with virtually no new additions.
But as you said, the "How to" tag seems to have lots of weightage. Some of my "how to"s in that site have been written taking lots of time and effort. I am getting fantastic page view counts there (1,45,000 page views in 23 months).
The only problem is I am not able to come out with new and good "how to"s on a continuous basis.
Those who can do it, I would definitely recommend that site. The site has little to no interaction with members, but it generates money!
I think you've just proved my point, CV. Your articles at Howto are doing well, not because of the site, but because they are answering a need. Readers want to know "how to" do things.
If most of your Hubs are not answering a need, then they will certainly not earn as well as your "how to" articles, wherever they are.
Do you have your Hubs set up as channels on Adsense, so you can see which ones are earning?
My question is not really about SEO or other optimizing techniques.
I want to know how others fare in terms of adclicks in hubpages. (Of course SEO etc play a role, I don't deny). But what I mean is I don't bother too much on such things; but I am faring much better in that site.
One of my suspicion is that internal traffic for my articles is more here than the other site. That could perhaps be one reason.
I agree with BadCo. 2% isn't bad. Some of my Hubs are more like 10% but they are very specifically targeted to key words and have relatively low traffic. Generally I find high traffic hubs tend to get less than 1%.
Yes! 2% to 2.50% is common. And supposed to be very good. I have the same.
I'm not too sure about the ratio but with around 100 page views a day, I will get 2 cents to over a dollar a day. It all just depends.

How long does it take to make money with hubpages? After 160 views on 10 hubs they tell me I have 0 clicks. Is something wrong?
