Yesterday I reached 100 followers. Today I went over 50K total views. And seeing a steady increase in earnings. I love HP.
Just thought I'd share the love.
Congratulations! Haven't seen you much around the forums lately. Guess you're too busy hubbing. I'm up to 77,000 views.
Nope - not busy doing anything. My old laptop broke and it took me a couple weeks to get a new one. The new machine is ace though and I am now a super-speedy hubber. Missed the forums.
You are amazing, Wry - I've only about a tenth of that figure! Working on it, though, and will get there one day.
Your post further down on time is sure true, too. I don't promote hardly at all, but views (and income) keep growing. It was fun this morning to find that in the 2 days of Sept., I've passed the total income from July, meager though it was. It won't continue at that rate, of course, but was fun to see.
I've only just launched my hub page a few days ago and still have a long way to go to reach the dizzy heights you've achieved but I'm going to try to reach for the stars and if I fall short, then the moon is good enough!
Reach for the stars Spacey Gracey and enjoy your next journey forwards.
been doing this for 2 wks now ..made .01 cent..lol but I only have 5 hubs up. Need to do somne more. How do you guys advertise I only have 1 other site I use and it is giving me some traffic but I really need more.
The awesomeness of hubpages is that basically if you write quality hubs on topics that people are searching but don't have huge amounts of competition for, you don't need to promote. Just leave your hubs alone and within 6-9 months they will be getting plenty of traffic on their own. A hub I wrote about 8 months ago, without promotion is now getting 180-200 hits a day. It takes time so just keep writing and it will happen!
I put every hub on the freebie version if IM Automator - not sure how much traffic that generates but seems to get hub Google listed pretty quick. Then occassionally I put down some links on Snipsly, Squidoo, or Bukisa if it looks like that hub would benefit it when compared with the competition. Dont spend hours linking like some do because I simply cant be bothered and prefer to write new hubs instead.
Congratulations! I just started but stories like yours keep me focussed on the goal! Any advice or tips you could throw my way would be great!
dosters - I can't remember who gave me this tip but it was definitely the best one: At the start you don't make much money, even after two months you might make much money. But use this time to keep writing hubs. Because in 6 months time, if you have only written 10 hubs and they have made you $100 you will be kicking yourself wondering how much more money you would've made if you had kept on hubbing and written tons more - does that make sense. I didn't explain it that well.
And read loads on the forums - use the search function to trawl through posts about 'traffic', 'backlinking', 'keywords', 'amazon', and 'Misha'
And since I had no idea what style of hub, or what keywords would make money, I just went crazy and wrote a ton. My first 100 hubs were pretty much at random. The rest have been much more targeted and successful, but I wouldn't have known how to do them if I hadn't done that first 100.
Stick at it. I have recently temporarily abandoned another income strea as I am finding this much more lucrative.
Thanks! Right now I stay home with my 2 boys, so I try to get one hub written per day. That's a good day. But right now I have 7 hubs up in less than 2 weeks, and I am trying to get at least 20 up my the end of the month. Any suggestions on topics? Right now I am doing the random thing...
Hey Dosters - what a coincidence - I am also at home full time with two boys .
If you want to make Amazon money, I use three sources of inspiration:
1 - checking the bestsellers lists of different Amazon departments
2 - Googles keyword tool (if you haven't used it before just Google 'google free keyword tool' and a link will come up). I always use the 'exact' match option.
3 - Googles search assist. Go to Google, type in a type of product like 'espresso maker' and see what it suggests in the drop down - this is Google guessing what you want to search for based on what other people searched for.
If you want to make Adsense money......step away from me right now coz I haven't got a clue and go check out Misha, Ryankett and Thisisoli.
Hey congrats Spacey Gracey, and 167 Hubs shizzzzzz, very noice.
I am 3 shy of 100 good folks on here, but on another site just seen one of my articles surpass the 125k views after 18 months, very stoked about that.
2 shy now - even though I really wanted to wait and be #100. Surprised not following you already as we bump into each other a lot in the forums.
I just had a look at my profile, and saw 98 peeps on me list now, thanks to you 98, can't call you 99 as noone popped in before yourself.
Not surprising, lots of long time peeps just becoming a fan of me now, glad to have you all on board to read about my little world of madness
Congratulations, and many thanks for sharing. I love most all the stories of how it improves over time and that things get better steadily. It's so much fun to watch, even though my own numbers still are small...
Congrats Spacey Gracey!I just went thru your profile and you have made great progress.Good luck for the future too.
Way to share the love. You can share the earnings anytime you want too My paypal account is...
Congrats, Spacey - you have worked hard and are reaping the results of that time and effort. Thanks for the post - comments like yours help to keep me going.
Wow gracy, thats not so spacey!
I have to get my page views up!!!
Mwwahhhhh - big kiss. Missed you Cagsil. I have been in offline hell. No laptop = no excuse not to do housework . Got new latop, which has wiped out every penny I have earned so far on HP- but I love it and now I am back online. Gotta hub like crazy now to prove its worth.
I would love to make some money on HP... I've been stuck on 82cents for a month now. (sigh)
Probably a good idea to write more hubs then.
Every time I was depressed by my lack of funds I used that as inspiration to write another hub. And if you keep doing that you will eventually start to make money.
hey wrylit ..you gave me nice idea for hub...
WryLilt you are right -
When I had been here about 3 months, and made about $30 someone on the forums said they didnt see the sense in me writing loads more hubs when I didnt have any proof I was doing the right thing - but that is how I learnt. There isn't a magic forumla, and even if there was, I'm not the type of person who would follow it.
. I'd rather copy and paste Amazon codes into capsules than sit on a check out going beep, beep, beep . I came here to write....now I am a prolific cut and paster of product codes . But I do love the virtual shopping.

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting...

Hi All, My traffic has been flat over the past week or two. Admittedly, I haven't promoted any of my hubs over that time period. That being said, I would like to get some steady and sustainable traffic. Any tips or...

I managed to get almost half way there, but that's still a far cry from getting it done. I think I must've been crazy to think I could get it done at this time of year. I'll try it again after the holiday craziness is...

So I am fairly new here and have written a few hubs, but to my surprise, no one has found my work yet. I can't seem to grow my fan base. I read a lot of everyone elses stuff and comment on everyones hubs, but I just get...
