    Hi friends
    I am quite new here on hubpages but i have written more than 100 articles on helium.
    I want to know that how much time it took you to reach 100$ a month mark. and how many hubbs have you written by now ?
    although it is quite a relative thing because it depends on topics choosen as well as SEO kind of things for hubbs ? But generally if we are getting 20,000 monthly views to our hubbs and conversion is not that good then how much can we make through adsense and amazon etc.
    I am seriously thinking about a shift in direction from Helium to HP.
    SO, Just needs some motivation
    I can write 20-25 hubs a month.

      If you write quality hubs, know how to select keywords and optimize your pages it shouldn't take you very long - maybe 3-4 months, possibly quicker. Paul Edmondson, one of the hubpages owners, says the average earnings are $2-5 per 1000 page views, which works out right in my case.

      BTW - Welcome to HP! Now get writing!

        2-5$ per 1000 impressions sounds right. I have heard 1-3, but I think thats more accurate. 1.00 per 1000 page views is generally below average. Sometimes, It looks like I am going to get that, but I end up having a good day and it compensates for all the below average days such as bad PPC or CTR.

      I started in early August and hit $300 in Amazon commissions within the first week or so.  Commissions have risen ever since.  After an overhaul and removal of crappy hubs, I currently own just under 80 hubs.

      Most of my hubs receive relatively little traffic (10-50 visits per day) but conversions are good.  Sunforged is right - traffic can come very quickly if you go about things correctly.

      although i have been here nearly 3 years i only started to get serious at the start of this year,so it has taken me 10 months to acheive $100 a month,(my best month was $180 but it has dipped a bit) around a 100 HUBS

    Why not just give it a try for yourself? I am sure you won't be disappointed.
    And welcome to HubPages!! smile

    I joined in January.

    Got serious in April.

    Am now up to about 210 hubs on all accounts.

    Made $48 last month from Adsense and $20 from Amazon.

    But nearly all I earnt last month was from stuff written between April and June, now that it's aged and is getting more traffic.

    Welcome to HP Vector
    That was some good information WryLilt for the newbies , especially the ones who want to make quick bucks! smile

    What I reallised is this.

    1. My adsense earning (in Euros) is roughly 20% of the total number of hubs,

    2. My average search engine visitors is 3/hub (that's without any promotion),

    3. My clickthrough ratio (CTR) is roughly 1%.

    Of course these figures depend on many factors, so yours might be higher or lower. And again, these are just rough estimates, just to give you a general idea.

      You're not meant to disclose your CTR. It's a good idea to delete that smile

      Don't disclose CTR.

    So, I have a feeling that reaching to 100$ mark per month is quite easiy by posting 30 articles a month by taking maximum benefits of upfronts and empty title bonuses, but off course revienew share to two low. just about 15-20 cents a month per articles. HP may be better in long term benefits.
    and the most important thing is the full control over editing  articles in HP that is missing in Helium.

    What about your views or experience about selecting a topic by keeping in consideration the products of amazon ? is it help ful for maximizing earning chances ?

    1. WryLilt profile image88
      WryLiltposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Product hubs make money off amazon.

      Informational hubs make money off adsense.

      You can get crossovers between the two, but that's how it works most of the time.

      And it really is about making a good hub. 1/3 of my hubs were written without background knowledge. Those rarely get google views, some never have.

      Of the money I have earnt it probably mostly came from just 25% of my hubs. In my experience, a hub usually either goes fairly well or is a complete flop, there isn't really an in between.

      Most hubs take 6-9  months to see decent traffic, though.

        This is a really good reminder to me that it takes "6-9 months go get good traffic"

          it can take only 60-90 minutes to get good traffic also.

          depends on your topic selection and definition of "good traffic"

          there are no set periods of time in calender days,nor are there any guarantees for clicks or conversions per a set amount of visitors

          results vary based on luck, topic selection, keyword targetting, writing style, layout, on/off page optimization etc.

          to get that $2-5/per 1000 average there are many at $4-10+/per 1000 point and many unfortunately at the zero/per 1000 rate.

        I agree some hubs just are dead. I have hubs that sky rocket, some are medium, and others seem dead. I pretty much know why some of mine are dead though. They may pick up eventually, or won't really ever.

        My hubs that get a few views per day though seem to be long term ones that I expect to get more traffic when they have aged more months and years...

    the type of titles on HP and Helium are quite different . There, we dont consider about amazon kind of thing, we just write for the sake of writing, basically to maximise empty tile and upfront bonuses. but, I should change my intention here on HP (I think)
    topic like "quick tips on improving vocabulary" or "how to gain self respect" are not going to do well ofr me here.
    M I right ??

      Those topics *may* do well if they have high traffic and relatively low traffic, in terms of adsense. The best way to optimize adsense is to put your first text capsule next on its own up the top, so your first large ad box can appear.
      Then put pictures further down the page.

      Do you know much about keywords?

      1. vector636 profile image61
        vector636posted 6 years ago in reply to this

        Yeah, I know about this niche and I understand the importance of traffic from search engines exclusively. I use adwords and I have not dared to buy a paid tool. Do you use any Paid tool?
        aS I AM NOT A NATIVE ENGILSH SPEAKER, So, I want to know how much strict HP is about grammatical errors ? Although I am not that bad in grammer.

    I got to >$100 after 4 months here.

    Amount of traffic is not important - one of my other sites makes around that with just 100 page views a day.

      Wow.. this is inspirational stuff.
      So what is the reason ?

      Or luck, which I dont have sad

    I've been around for 2 years but only got serious with Hubpages in the last 6 months.

    Last month I made over $200 with Amazon and Google Adsense! I also got my first google paycheck last month. smile

      I myself have been on hubpages for around 8 months but was missing for four of them and I have only just reached $75 soon to get my first paycheck from google if all goes to plan.

    I have been a member for 2 years, however, I just had my eyes opened to this forum today...sounds terrible I know, but my oversight has been corrected big_smile
    I got serious about making the $100. mark about a year ago. I wrote good content, although it wasn't necessarily green, but now have over 100 hubs up and have reached payout twice, and working towards #3.
