I'm not writing for that reason (making money)...i don't even include ads on my hubs...I turn them off...I think I have anyway....people write for a variety of reasons....so I can't offer any thoughts around it...others can.
It takes time to build up your pageviews. They say it can take up to ten months for the search index to fully index each page.
But I think what's more important is that if you desire it you take the time to learn it, and continue learning it, and putting in the effort to get there.
People always say just write what you know about, and frankly if you want to make money then generally speaking that isn't going to work so well, unless what you happen to know about just so happens to be a topic with high earning potential.
There's a difference between online writing and affiliate marketing. You can't do the former and expect the results of the latter.
If you're new at this, you'll have alot to learn, but there are plenty of people here at HP who are genuinely willing to help. I'd start off by reading the affiliate marketing hubs of sunforged, darkside, thisisoli and Mark Knowles. They'll get you heading in the right direction.
If you're already familiar with affiliate marketing, or marketing in general, then I think you'll find HubPages to be a fantastic venue. Should you have general site-usage questions you can't find the answers to, you can ask in the forums.
New to affiliate marketing or not, you may also check out the extreme hub makeover forum. There you can post your hubs and others can help give you ideas about how to improve it. Do this a few times and you'll start to get the hang of HubPages. You don't even have to post your own, just read the reviews of other people's if you want and you'll get good ideas.
Yes, you can make money, if you want to, can learn, and will put in the effort to get there.
Hope you don't put your hopes too high up in the money making thing... firstly, get your affiliates sorted out first, and Adsense is one of the most difficult ones to get approval, not talking about the others yet. Good Luck and hope you make alot of money in due course!
