A few weeks ago, Nelle Hoxie posted that she will write 1,000 hubs this year. I said I would have 1,000 by the end of the year. I almost always keep my word, but I'm re-thinking it this time. It seems the more I write, the less adsense I earn. If I continue writing, I'll end up paying google for the privilege of writing! At least that's how it seems to be going now.
I might stop for a while once I reach 500 to see what happens.
I can't say anything about adsense as I don't know much about it. But on your 1,000 hubs, I say don't sweat it. Just write the hubs you want . 500 hubs is already a big number.
habee, did you read that Hub did you leave a comment, I have posted a recipe for Irish Steak which I am now going to cook, 5.15 pm here....love you all
I read your IRA hub and left a comment. I'll check out your Irish steak hub.
habee - maybe it's just taking a while for Google to catch up. I find when I let loose with a bunch at once it can take a while for them to pick up in the ratings. My traffic (and income) is starting to pick up a bit, so maybe you'll notice a difference soon, too.
Benchmarks (like 500 hubs) are great for reassessing progress, too, though
Last time I checked, you weren't a quitter?
You always seemed to me, as a fighter.
Do you not have enough trust in your ability?
Is there anything I could do to provoke you to write more?
If there isn't....? Then, I suppose you'll just fail miserably and then pout, and then rant, then rave some more and then when you've finally had enough, you'll come complain again.
Either way? Good luck.
Awww, Holle isn't going to quit! She always pulls this scam. She just wants everyone to send her a dollar. I fell for it the first 2 or 3 times!
I agree with RedElf, it may just be that google is taking a while to catch up. Good luck with your challenge habee.
I thought around the holidays I read on the forums that traffic (and earnings) would be way down for the following 2 months (Dec/Jan, or Jan/Feb?). My numbers were good the last 2 days or so, and AdSense up. In general, Jan numbers were down to just more than half my usual stats.
December and beginning of January were really bad for me for AdSense, but it seems to be picking up (yesterday was my best day ever for AdSense earnings!). Imagine how much you might make with 1000 hubs in the future!
Still, 500 is a good number and nothing to be ashamed of, so either way, I'm sure it will work out well for you.
you seem to be having a real of good stuff, so your saying that you are unhappy about the earning seems to be unfair or even a lie!!! The hubs are potential money earnable hubs and it is really not possible that you are not earning well now!
Anyways I bet you would not stop at 500 if you have it in you to reach 500!
BEST OF LUCK !
it goes down because the money you are paid is an effective rate based on performance, if you have 2000 ad impressions and your high traffice sites are paying out say $1 ecpm but then you double your ad impressions but the traffic doesn't support the same effective rate then it will bring down the other ones until they level off. the ecpm in google adsense is the effective rate per 1000 impressions. When I first started my ecpm was something like 3 cents now that traffic growing it is upwards of 60 cents..once the traffic starts coming the ecpm across all pages will level off and catch up
I know what you mean. I made a promise to write 600 this year .-. but I'm not sure how I'm going to go about doing that.
I know it must feel like a daunting task, But I truly believe that if a person pushes themselves, Even if they don't make their goal, In the end they will be satisfied.
Because they did the very best they could.
This has been a lousy month for me adsense wise but I reckon it is just January. So I don't think it is worth getting discouraged yet.
habee, no stress about 1,000!
It seems that some folks who are new to affiliate marketing are not used to the roller coaster ride of the annual sales cycle. I'm happy as long as January is above the previous October. I work hard for Nov and Dec. But then forget about the sales because they can depress you for a few months if you're not careful.
I just get up on January 1 and start working again for the next sales cycle. But even now I'm thinking I bet this stuff will sell at Christmas 2010, and then I write a hub or website.
Although the Valentine hubs are starting to pick up steam, so I'm enjoying that.
The first few weeks of January are not the time to judge your earnings especially after the holidays. Remember that people are going through holiday recovery time, some are on vacation, taking exams in school, and dealing with winter weather.
I am noticing that people are just beginning to shop again in the real world and it is almost the end of January. Also, that there is a lag time between writing, getting indexed, and people clicking on links.
Don't set your writing goal by a number pulled from a hat. It is quality that counts.

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.

Thinking the last hub challenge hubs will be my last set of hubs on HP. I really can't see the return on investment for the time I've put into HP and don't have the patience or time it takes to wait a year or more down...

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

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...
