I joined hubpages some 8 months ago and have already published 37 hubs but up to this writing, I haven't earned a single centavo. I am old. I am a normal human being like you. I need money too like you. Whenever I read and hear a hubber shouting to the world he already earned 100 dollars, my emotion is carried and I envy him, hence my airing this view. What can and what will I do? Do help me fellow hubbers. Share with me your ideas, tips and techniques. etc which will help me as guide so I can even only earn a little from my hubs to make my remaining days happy. I earnestly invite you to even glance at my hubs st:

Do you have a adsense account? Did you copy your publisher ID to your Hubpage account? Sounds really impossible to me, unless you haven't pasted your id. Surely your impressions houldve generated a few cents by now. Go check that out and let me know.
ANS.: I'll have my reply perhaps in a matter of days. I'll still have to study and learn what adsense account you're talking about. Thank you for your concern. Do tell me more for my hubs to earn money fast.
full of problems today aren't you... first it is your penis now this,,,,,, i will look at your hubs
LOL Whooooooooooooooooo Brenda ina bad moooood
Brenda's got a baby but Brenda's barely got a brain
Damn the girl can hardly spell her name
That's not our problem that's up to Brenda's fami-ly
Well let me tell you how it affects our whole community!
Tell me who sings that song, it's a famous rapper who died years ago. It's about a 12 year old girl who got raped by her uncle and had a baby in the toilet and put the new baby in the bin. (True story)
Come on, Brenda, do take a look at my hubs and tell me what's wrong with them. I'll be waiting for your succor night and day.
So i take it you dont have an adsense account then? That way youwill NOT make anything. No matter how much you write. Wait for your reply, get your publisher ID and paste it into your Hubpage account. There you go. That's the only way !
Also, make sure you write your own stuff. Don't copy&paste.
It takes a while to start earning but if you stick at it - it can really work out for you.
Sorry for double post
Click on 'my account' at the top of HP, then click on 'affiliate settings' option under the title 'your account'. If the boxes that say 'affiliate code' next to each of the options there are empty (especially the Google one) that'll be why you're not making any money, because you haven't signed up to any of the money making programs.
Click on the blue links under the title 'check your earnings' and try signing up to some programs.
What they said -- if you didn't sign up for an AdSense account, you're not going to make a centavo.
Second, the topics you're writing on aren't helping. They're pretty much just recaps of news stories. Take a look at the ads being shown. If I'm reading a news story about a confessed female rape organizer, I doubt I'm going to want to click on ads about hot sexy Indian actresses.
Instead of just reporting facts about the news, write what you thought of that event or topic in your own word. I read couple of your hub but it is just dry fact reporting. And what is Courtesy of the Internet? If you got source from certain page, or site use quote then write about what you think, or opinion about that event, etc. Just my 2 cent.
nick071438, HubPages doesn't pay any of us any money.
We all earn money by signing up for Adsense. If you haven't signed up for Adsense and pasted your Adsense code into Hubpages, it's impossible to earn anything.
So you need to learn how to do that first. All the information is here on HubPages, in the Help information and numerous Hubs.
Well if you haven't added your Adsense publisher id then you want be earning anything at all and even if you do enter your id I don't think you will earn much because most of your hubs are just news stories
nick, there are a lot of Hubbers on here who are "over a certain age". I took a quick look at some of your Hubs, and some of them look like they have the kind of titles someone may search for, but some (like some of mine) have titles that may not necessarily be what people will first think of if they search.
Based on what I saw of the few Hubs I looked at, though, I can't imagine you would not have earned even a cent in eight months with them. Like others on here, I'm wondering if you either have not signed up with Google Ad Sense (for content) and/or if you haven't entered your code where it needs to be entered.
I thought it sounded a little odd, being a hubber for 8 months and 36 hubs and not making any money? But if you haven't got an active adsence account then thats why. Good luck
I wish to thank you ALL for taking sincere and genuine concern in this particular issue of mine. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'm now proud to tell you that I've considered your comments and suggestions which have prodded me to work harder. Now my estimated adsense total earnings is $82.61, I'm happy.
Congratulations on those earnings! I'm new here compared to you, and I can't wait to receive my first payout, too
Welcome to hubpages, KristenGrace. I know you've the gift. Just add more focus, patience, determination and you'll have your share of the pie. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
At this point in time, I wish once more to say thank you to all who participated and offered useful insights regarding the problem I've posted at the start of this issue.
After joining hubpages for over 2 years now, I'm proud to let fellow hubbers and hubpages readers and visitors know that I've received my first check in the amount of $US 100.93 for my earnings as part of the Google Adsense Program last Monday, May 16, about 11.30 a.m through our local post office. That- without their wholehearted support and help- I would not realize the said payment. Thank you.
My happiness knows no bound in the sense that I was able to break hubpages despite the limited knowledge I learned as I go on signing on and off the computer year in year out.
Hubpages to me is too strict. I realized their policy is good.
They want hubbers to follow their guidelines for the good of the website and for the hubbers as well. One particular example I can cite is they don't want pixelated pictures or videos with watermark to go with our hubs. They'll demand that you either delete or change them.
I hope and pray to live up to their standards.
Congrats. Glad you are happy. Remember there is plenty more money out there to be made!
Congratulations, Nick!!! I'm very happy for you. I was not here 2 years ago, but I'm glad you persevered and now you got your first cheque.. that's awesome! I just crossed the payout threshold on Adsense, so I will be getting my first cheque from Adsense, too. I'm sure I will be as happy as you. Well, I'm ecstatic now. Again, congrats and I wish you more paycheques in the future here in Hubpages.
I was getting a nice payment from Adsense into my bank account every month except last month after Panda hit, but earnings and traffic have resumed this week and I am on course for a nice payout end of June. However it is a little slow today because of the weekend
I took a look at your hubs and I was impressed by the wide range of topics you write about. You obviously have an inquisitive mind.
I can think of a few reasons why you might not have earned anything. First, as others have said - make sure that you actually have your adsense code added to your account. Just because you see adsense ads on your hub does not mean that your account is properly set up. If you do not have your adsense account set up properly, hubpages will display its own code.
Once you eliminate that possibility, are you getting decent traffic? You earn money from Adsense only when someone clicks on an ad, and only a small percentage of total visitors will click. You need to have a fairly high amount of traffic in order to get a few clicks.
Also, I noticed that many of your hubs focus on issues relevant to Filipinos. Nothing wrong with that, but do most Filipinos search the web in English or do they use Tagalog or Spanish? If so, perhaps your hubs are not reaching your target audience. For better revenues, you may want to publish hubs of greater interest to people in the USA or Canada since ads targeted at people in these countries attract the best rates.
Nick said that after implementing the suggestions from this thread he's now earned over $100 from Adsense.
I read your post through and through and have considered all points beneficial. I"ll try to be guided by them so I can increase my harvest of $. Best regards and thank you quotations.
Congratulations. When i read the beginning of this thread, I was shocked to see that you hadn't earned a penny from 8 months out of 34 hubs. that's crazy. I am 12 days old into hubpages and i made my first cent 4 days back. Good to see you earning more now. Good luck in future too.
when nick071438 was at "8 months and 34 hubs", I think he was not enabled any hubpages ads or AdSense program, hence could not make a cent.
Sharing this kind of experiences is really good for new hubbers like me, and also a good lesson that before jumping to write and publish, what are all the things we should be aware of.
Between, congrats nick
Yes, psf, look before you leap. I mean If you want to earn a little from your writings, do what my helpers have advised. They're gospel truth.. In short, accomplish requirements 100% then write topics that are allowed by hubpages. They're quite strict. But I consider their policies good and constructive. You'll not get lost. Helps and instructions are complete Just look them up. Thanks for commenting, psf.
Thank you. Let's hope there will be huge downpour of adsense money for all of us in the near future.
congrats nick! pray for me to receive my first check too
Dear God: Please hasten release of TheOnlineBlogger first payout. Let's make him happy like I do.
Earnings from hubs more and more becoming a subject to praying...
I agree. Thought you were leaving. So you decided to stay or are you still leaving?
Oh, I am gone - or almost gone. I removed everything on all my accounts, except for pure backlinking hubs and those that still make some money, and stopped promoting all my hubs. As soon as they stop performing I will remove them, too. This place as we knew it is over.
Remember this, only a place like Hubpages that can allow you so much liberty. And, I would like to ask you to visit this place again about six months later. I am going to astonish you with the number of views that I am going to get here and associated adsense earing. LEAVE MISHA, you are now one of the worst irritations here.
Today, I devoted so much time on Hubpages. Blogs, newsletters, forums, and related hubs. I also read one of your interviews, Mr. Misha, where the interviewer from the Hubpages added something more and advised readers to don't attempt the mud of 'black hat SEOs' as you were advising. You always did the same Misha. It is people like you because of whom the Hubpages has lost its potential. I am not a prolific writer, and just last December I added an adsense account here, but my articles visits have been skyrocketed since Panda Update even though I know how poorly I can write. Though not authoritatively written, but better than what other website has to offer in my niche areas, my articles on education have got lots of views after Panda. People like Misha has ruined Hubpages.
P.S. I would ask suggestion about adding images of my comparative page views after Panda Update and before Panda update to show the facts in figures.
I think you have things a bit muddled. For one Misha doesn't do black hat, he gets links to his pages, which anyone who earns online will tell you is necessary to rank for anything moderately competitive. Hubpages has not been harmed but helped by people like Misha because all of those backlinks help everyone else's rankings too.
The harm has come from the thousands of spam, spun and duplicate articles on here and the failure of HubPages to stop that successfully. You are pointing your finger in the wrong direction.
Misha uses paid backlinking services extensively to get thousands of links, which some people would call black hat.
I do agree, though, that it's not harming HubPages. I've tried paid backlinking networks and never been able to stick with them, because the sight of thousands of garbage blogs makes me puke. But the sad fact is, those splogs have page rank,which just shows how useless Google's "quality measures" are. And if Google gives them page rank, it clearly isn't going to regard the links as bad either.
Yep! It makes sad. I don't see it changing until the replace some of the help/staff.
Get used to it Nicko....the very idea of earning from hubpages just seems a distant thought right now what with everything going on in the world of Goggle eyed search engines.
Maybe tomorrow I wanna settle down, until tomorrow, just keep movin on.........
It's sad that quality hubs get less views than poorly written ones.
Dude, quality is subjective. Only thing that matters is your competitors. If you are writing better than them then certainly you are adding quality to the internet. I read two of your hubs, and honestly, you are a genius. Keep it up. If you have got hit by Panda then your resentment is OK. But, if Misha, whose articles are really fake other than propagating 'black hat SEO techniques, is complaining about this Panda then that hurts. PEACE.
I do not feel any resentment...
And...I'm not a dude...
Wishing the best to you (and continued earnings), Nick. Nice to see another "long-term Hubber" (couple of years or more on here) still on HubPages.
Great work - the ones who persevere are the winners. It took me several valleys before my payouts were decent. Just March 20th I somehow was blessed by Google and my daily earnings have quadrupled. I am praying that this sudden rise doesn't become a sudden fall.
I love this forum and enjoy the challenge of making each hub the best. I just wish my learning curve were shorter - oh, my goodness, did I take the long course - adding capsules, deleting capsules and finally I think I have the SEO working and I might even know what I am doing!
So glad you are here and congratulations on your hard work and hanging in here with us.
