Payout Again????????

  1. Cagsil profile image59
    Cagsilposted 6 years ago

    Hey Hubberville,

    As far as I know, people consider "payout" when they reach the total $100.00 threshold.

    So, I opened a thread the first time I reached $100.00 threshold. And, I had many people wish me luck on the next payout. Also I had some the next $100 would come quicker.

    Well, to be honest, it DID come quicker.

    It took me 7 months to make $100 and then LESS than 30 days to do it again!

    With that said- Whatever you do, do not give up on your hubs. smile

      Awsome. I'm realizing that hubs can be a form of passive income if you build quality traffic. Keep up the great work

    Congratulations Cagsil.

    Increased traffic is definately the key, it just seems like forever when your waiting.  However, you have proved that patience is the key, and providing you can wait, you will be rewarded.

    I hope to get there one day, if not this year then next. 

    Congrats again.

      I don't drink. I haven't had a drink of alcohol for over 3 years. I just one day quit. I found I didn't have a need for the people of the local establishment I had been frequenting for 18 years and was no longer wanting the alcohol.

      It was a quite unique experience to say the least. wink big_smile

      Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Thank you Mutiny. I hope you do reach your payout on a monthly basis, it will show you how much you really can make, when listening to the veterans on HubPages. smile

      I was a bit surprised myself. I figure it would take more than a couple of months to put together a second payout. smile

        1. Cagsil profile image59
          Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

          I did - from October 2009 until May. Which was my best month so far.

          I made very little, like about $50 between Oct and end of April.

          May got me to my first payout $100, a little ways through. So, you should be good for your first payout about 6-7 months, even though the estimated time frame is about 9-12 months on average.

          The past few weeks has been really interesting because I've watched my traffic go from 500 views to 3000 views per day.

          Have patience. wink big_smile

            I was pretty happy with my results, but the past week my views (and adsense) has dropped a lot.  I think it may be the end of school, but I plan on continuing to focus on more Amazon hubs - those have been improving a bit. 

            What caused your traffic to increase six-fold over the past few weeks?  That is an impressive feat!

            500 to 3000- outstanding! 

            How much backlinking have you done on sites like RedGage, SheToldMe etc?  And are the views distributed fairly evenly (or normal distribution for you), or are a few hubs getting the most dramatic traffic spikes?

            1. Cagsil profile image59
              Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              Hey Rmcrayne, I have RedGage and my Blog. I have also sent out some Tweets(Twitter).

              I have done very little backlinking, however, most if not all my hubs are inter-connected together, so when one person reaches one of my hubs, they are most likely able to get to others, just like it(the one they visited).

              I have no clue who is linked to my articles and so on and so forth. I do no promotion(advertising) of my hubs. Except as I stated above. Then again, as I've said plenty of times recently, most of my revenue generated is coming from my Photo hubs of Models and Celebrity Hubs, at least 90% of the total.
