    These 1-cent, 2-cent, 3-cent ad clicks are killing me! smile

    Are there any solutions to this?

      Write about different subjects. But it is possible that those subjects will come with even fewer clicks. I haven't figured out what it is that makes people click on a lot of ads for a good return yet, Lol.

      Go for high paid keywords or build more and more lenses so that you can compensate with many clicks.

    Perhaps your Hub titles could be changed, most of my titles are between 1-4 words at most..this makes them a lot easier to be indexed by search engines

        Do you think this is because of 'drowning out your keywords' or for another reason, Richie?

    I have noticed that HubPages has a LOT more low-paying clicks than another platform I write for. Not sure why either.

    Bill Manningposted 6 years ago

    Every ad is payed for by someone who wants a customer. Big ticket items, or popular items will pay more.

    Writing about a cruise, for instance, gets me 1 to 3 bucks a click on my own sites. Toothpicks, ashtrays, stationary and so on will give you low paying clicks.

    I just got a pet item click for $3.33 on my new pet website. Most clicks on hubpages seem low, however I did get a $2.75 click on here.

    Write about a big ticket item or very popular items and you'll get more per click, on average. smile

    Write on different topics and use a keyword tool to include the keyword in the title and in the article. Your article should get indexed and start to receive traffic, once you start to get traffic then you should start receiving high clicks. Write on topics that are up and coming and that would most likely bring in more money per click. For an example start writing on some Halloween or Christmas hubs now and so when the times, I am sure you will receive some benefit from it as long as you use the keyword tool right. As of right now, I have made over $70 with Hubpages and $50 with Amazon following these steps and it is steadily increasing with my older articles and newer ones.

    So, if I understand this thread correctly, in order to make any money, you must write reviews of commercial products or commercial venues such as amusement parks???!!!

    No $$ for op-ed pieces, travelogues, or anything else, eh?  Hmmm...serious bummer.

    1. Bill Manning profile image72
      Bill Manningposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      No, not at all. You can write about anything you want and make money with adsense. HOWEVER if you want to make a LOT of money with them, then yes you have to write more along the lines of commercial hubs.

      You could just write about your last vacation and get lots of high paying clicks because you had good key words in there.

      But for consistent, high paying clicks you need to focus on the subjects that pay good. The Google adsense key word tool right in your Google account shows you what key words are high paying.

      So if you work those key words into your hub and rank for them, you should get high clicks. It all comes down to how much you make it a business and how much you just want to write for writing sake.

      Since I work online as a full time job, it's all about biz to me. smile

      Some of my top-earning AdSense Hubs fit none of the descriptions or topics you are presuming are the only money-makers.

      1. Bill Manning profile image72
        Bill Manningposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        That's nice to know. I suppose any hub has the potential to do good with adsense.

        However for consistent, long term income it's better to focus on just what keywords generate a lot of clicks and high paying ones. Those on AVERAGE consist of commercial or product types.

        I don't go after the really high ones because there is too much competition. But 30 clicks at .50 cents a pop is 15 bucks verses 5 cent clicks for $1.50. smile

    Traffic will also play a big role.  You could make a ton of money on penny clicks with a million of them.

    I have several hubs whose clicks range from the dreaded $0.01 all the way up to nearly $3.00, so the payout isn't solely topic-related--at least in my case. smile

    OIC.  Well, my angle is I like to write, and I write about what I like.  Hopefully, there are folks who enjoy my writings.  I'm not trying to make my writing a 'business' in the sense of earning my way by people clicking on ads--I don't put a lot of faith in that.

    Most folks, I feel, gloss over ads because they don't like ads--they see them as a distraction from what they came to read, so they get ignored.

    How many of you, for example, sit through all the ads in commercial breaks on TV?  How many more get up and use those couple of minutes to do something else, such as get a snack, or stick the laundry into the dryer?

    I'm putting my writing out there more in the hope of earning for-pay writing jobs...not hoping folks click on ads.  I view that aspect more as a sideline than reliable income.

      For-pay writing can be very good. I myself use to write articles for others and charged by the article. Check out Demand Studios, they pay by the article. Good luck. smile

        Hmm... just looked it over--they want you to do 'work for hire' and sign away all your rights.  That won't work for me I want to do freelance, but not in a 'work for hire' situation--I will assign 1st North American rights only, so I can re-work my own pieces for re-use elswehre.  Thanks, though--all leads are worth following up!

          Writing on the internet is not like writing published articles, you cannot assign globally limited licenses.

          If you write an article for demand media you can easily get away with rewriting it, half the stuff on there is rewritten from other articles anyway.

            Of course you can.  You can assign or not assign any copyright you desire. Enforcing it is another issue,  because it obviously requires ip filtering, but if you can convince someone that it's worth going to that much effort for your little blurb, you certainly can.

            1. thisisoli profile image62
              thisisoliposted 6 years ago in reply to this

              But why would anybody buy a global limited licence for written work online. 

              IP restrictions on content are cumbersome at best. The technical application is possible, but the commercial viability is close to non-existent.

              Add that to the fact that good content can be found relatively cheaply (Not talking about the dollar article writers here) from people who are more than willing to sign a global licence, and you simply cannot keep up with the competition by creating region specific licences.  Enforcing it would be an issue, but finding a buyer would be a much larger issue.

      If that's the case, then I recommend you take a look at how Sufidreamer has written his profile.

      http://hubpages.com/profile/Sufidreamer

      You notice he identifies himself as a freelance writer for hire, and links to a website where he gives full details of his capabilities.  About half his HubPages profile is about his freelance writing abilities.

      Or here's Julie Ann Amos's approach:

      Freelance work is good if you can get it and although you may get paid a one time fee, I much prefer the write once and get paid over a recurring almost passive way which would add up to more money in the long run.

      It takes a bit to learn and can be viewed as a side income, but not with me, I know once I've written certain articles that they will continue to earn me money over a longer time frame.

    I was tempted once or twice to go in for Google AdSense, but I haven't so far. And I've got more than 80 hubs up.

    Somehow I don't like the ads to spoil the page. The HubPages layout is good without the ads. But then who is willing to give up the 'moolah'?

      Just because you don't  sign up for adsense doesn't mean ads won't be displayed. They will be displayed 100% of the time, only hubpages will receive all of the revenue.

        You just gave him misinformation.

        He has set his hubpages to non-commercial and selected 'no' ads. An option we is open to each and every one of us.

        The only AdSense unit on his pages are the blocks at the very bottom, under the comments.

    There is a lot that goes into clicks.  I think keyword research is very important, but it is more complicated than people think.  It is a balance and not just picking the highest competition - that will be challenging. 

    Continue to write quality posts that will offer something to the reader.  It does not have to be commercial - many of my highest paying articles (on other sites) have nothing to do with commercial products.  Make it natural, don't force the keywords.  And as always, patience, effort, and time.  Hard concept for many freelance writers.

    I guess Thosee 1-cent,  2-cent or 3-cent you are earning in you Google Adsense account is not from ad clicks but from Page impressions. Google pays you few pennies for every certain page impression they recieve from your articles.

    You should not much worry about Adsense earning until and unless you want to live on those clicks.

    If  you want to Work Full Time and Earn 100% Income from Adsense then try to publish more artilcles on other website  as well apart from HP, create your own adsense websites, blogs.

    I think you have selected keywords which have low Click rates. try to use those which have high click rates and spend some time to optimize your blog or site.
    definitely you will earn more.
