I've been trying Adsense for a while and I don't really have any results.My issue is I need a domain and web hosting but it coasts 10$ from a credit card which I do not have.Besides backlinks,commenting on forums,linking blogs is it possible to succeed in Adsense without owning a domain or hosting it.I have like 3 blogs which isn't bringing me any results.I know I have to find an original niche I did but it's not the type to drive a lot of traffic.Any other ideas I came up with there's way too much competition.I tried Adsense to get away from all theses other scams(pyramids like ACN worst 500$ ever waisted).I think I'm hitting a dead end,I don't want to quit but all this effort is bringing me nowhere( only made like 3$).I know all the tricks driving traffic,backlinks blah blah but nothing is working I look at all thoses videos of those who succeeded in Adsense but still nothing.What am I to do?If anyone has some advice I'd like to hear it...thanks in advance
Hey michael - I see you have only posted a few hubs, and quantity can really help you. I am told it takes time and persistence, and writing good quality Hubs.
There's lots of good info here if you cruise around the forums - check out Extreme Hub Makeover, Need Help and the Knowledge Exchange. There's lots of good help and advice available.
Thanks for the tip but the thing is I have 2 different hubs and 3 blogs so it's not just a concern of Hubpages but I get what you mean.I checked and found out hub brings you up in google really quick it might be usefull
Hey Michael....I did the ACN $500 thing too, years ago...I saw it work for lots of people, I just wasn't one of them.
I had a website I was trying to salvage from another project my husband started and lost interest in, so it was on shaky ground from the get-go, but I stayed with it for a year to satisfy all the contractual parts of the deal. I made zilch on the website, but here, I'm making a monthly income now after only being here just over a year. I get to write about whatever I want. Seriously, if you give HubPages a chance and publish a solid 30 quality, well-researched hubs, you'll start to see some results.
I agree. I don't have as many as the others that posted here. I have just started to see more now. I have had more in the last week than the rest of the time I have been here. Set a long term goal and go for it. Mine is to be making decent money in a year and have over 100 hubs. I think it's more likely here than anywhere else I've seen.
Michael, it can take a lot longer than 3 months - so don't quit yet. And it can take more than a few Hubs (unless you hit on one that's particularly popular search-wise) - so keep writing Hubs. If you don't want to/can't wait months for earnings that seem worthwhile to show up, you may want to look at other ways to earn more immediate money; but continuing to write and spend a little time on HubPages (which doesn't have to take much time each day) can be worth it in the long-run. If you know the tricks and techniques when it comes to SEO, keywords, promoting, etc. you're ahead of the game. Many people on here will tell you that they're glad they didn't get discouraged at three months.
When I first signed up I didn't quite know what HubPages "was about", but I enjoy writing; so I just wrote. I didn't know if I'd earn anything or not, but since I enjoy writing I figured, "No skin off my nose" to write when I felt like writing. The first few months of earnings were "piggy bank money" (and a five-year-old's piggy bank at that). Earnings picked up between three months and (I think) eight months, and I've been paid monthly since then (only writing Hubs when I'm in the mood to). A lot of people have similar experiences. Some, who put in the right kind of effort, earn faster.
as the others say don't give up. I know you say your not a beginner but if you want some sound advice from a guy who earns a fortune with free blogs check this out http://makemoneyforbeginners.blogspot.com/ The guys called Grizzly and he's well respected.
Grizzly knows his stuff alright, but it may take a while to learn how to stuff keywords and get away with it like Grizzly does.
Michael, I can confirm it takes time to get started earning a decent amount with Adsense - or any other method of monetizing a blog.
Most people find they earn little or nothing in their first two or three months on HubPages, regardless of how much they write (there are a few notable exceptions who have either lucked into great niches, or have done a lot of hard work in a short time on SEO etc, or both). Patience is the key.
Same goes for blogs - a good niche will get you so far, but Google also rewards age, and there's not much you can do about that except wait. I have a flamenco blog and was seriously considering not renewing the domain name when it came up. Lo and behold, just two weeks before expiry, it suddenly started getting traffic. Now it's getting as much readership as my belly dance site.
However I'm guessing you also have a lot to learn about making money online. For instance, I notice you haven't done some elementary things like writing your HubPages profile and including links to your blogs.

So far I've mostly been relying on writing good content and trusting people to find it, but after a spike this summer, my traffic here at HP has collapsed to some rather depressing levels, considering the number of hubs...

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.
