Misha, congratulations you have obviously put in a lot of hard work on obtaining this success. Please excuse my ignorance but looking at your earnings how can you tell which Hubs earned you the money. It just says 'hubpages dot com'
Nah Peter, I am not going to disclose any more details publicly - I have enough competition already. Email me if you really want to know.
Now that I re-read you question, I though you might have asked a different thing. I have an adsense channel defined for each hub so I know exactly where earning are coming from and how - I just did not show these channels on the picture.
Hi Misha - I was wondering if the $100 in a day came from just 19 hubs - which is quite amazing, as my 60 odd hubs are bringing in about $60 a month in total, so I was wondering what on earth I was doing wrong basically ! Am I doing the wrong thing by writing hubs rather than concentrating on getting backlinks for the hubs I already have ?
I suspect you are right about the promotion as I checked one of your hubs and it has 398 backlinks - I thought I had been getting links to my hubs from other sites such as shetoldme, snipsly etc... - but when I checked I only had 1 backlink and that was from somewhere else not from where I thought I had been getting them - so it would seem that I have got some serious backlink building to do - I will be doing some checking and promoting of some of my hubs to see if it makes any difference
Talk about coming back to earth with a thump! I only just finished checking my Adsense account and was thrilled to find I've made $97 for May so far. Feeling very pleased with myself - until I found this thread!
Great stuff and congrats, Misha! I'm just happy to have made it to my set payout marker this month - w/3mo worth of earnings added up! My funds are slowly building month to month but nowhere near close to a hundred per day!
Good on ya, Misha - I hope this continues for you.
So you were at $97 dollars after 11 days which is like $9 per day and on the next day you made $96 dollars in one single day. I guess I am not understanding your post. If this is what your saying I dont believe it.
Nope, I was at $97 for that day, not counting previous ones. And even more for the next days up to date. This does not mean I did not make anything at all on the previous days, it was just significantly lower, in the area of $30-$50.
My highest day wasn't on a hub, but on one of my old sites that isn't around anymore. It was an online gaming mega guild that I created with over 250 active members (about 1,000+ guests) per day. Anyhow, a couple of my members attended a gaming convention (E3) and let me upload all the videos from it, and also their write-ups were on my site as well. Needless to say I got thousands and thousands of additional people that day, and I made a pretty penny.
Ohh.. I found it on the archive.org website, it logged it. Granted, they seemed to have stripped a lot of the coding out of it because it looks rather strange, but it shows how active it was, even during the end.
It's because my guild was following 2 bad games (Warhammer Online and Age of Conan), both which pretty much flopped. On top of that, I was laid off during the same period and couldn't concentrate on running it (It was a dictatorship style guild). I assigned another person as my temp placeholder, but his heart wasn't in it either, and slowly but steadily the guild began to die. Sucks too, had over a quarter of a million posts too! Also running a guild of that size isn't an easy task, it was almost a full time job in itself due to coordinating everything. It was good times, but the shear amount of time involved in trying to resurrect it and do damage control wasn't worth the effort at that stage. Besides, there wasn't any online games coming out that the bulk of the guild wanted to play, so we had no focus either. Sometimes good things have to come to an end, it's the way of life.
ps. I was probably one of the few guild sites out there that was extremely SEO optimized! I was running a modified version of vbSEO with my vbulletin installation, as well as other odds and ends that was making individual threads ranking really high in google. The runoff was really nice! I remember thinking at the end there.. I wish I had a site name that was more.. generic so I can switch it to something else other than a gaming guild, so I can keep the content for the most part, but oh well.. the name was too focused.
I did let it sit there for a while, and it was bringing in a bit more than server costs because of all the backlinks all over the place. It's just that I felt it was time to let that go.. even though technically I did make a complete backup of the website, and it's stored locally and online lol.. so technically, it's just buried right now, yet not completely gone, at least in that sense.
lol.. Misha, ah.... now I see all that work you were trying to train me for....it DOES have it's uses! I'm so happy for you, not just for your success, but because you're an amazing person and deserve it all! It's a pleasure working with you...really. Well done and keep it up!
Grats, Misha! Way to go! I want to be just like you someday (or any other top earners here) Hehe ..
I'm also beginning to see more clicks now that I've begun writing more often and more seriously. Still haven't reached the $10 mark, though. Still have quite a way to go and lots more to learn apparently

Thought I would share a small success story with everyone. I'm using Amazon Associates (along with AdSense) to monetize most of my hubs here at Hubpages, and woke this morning to a nice report of my Valentine's Day...
That's right folks! I'm living proof that it can be done with some good old fashioned work ethic. I have only 9 hubs,but have busted my butt daily learning all the methods of linking and article writing. The majority of...
