    Hi,

    I made an acceptable amount of money for being here just one full month with 52 hubs written by the end of November.

    I sold 25 Amazon products and shipped 19 with total value of over $1000.

    I'm quite happy!

    P.S. For a detailed analysis and screenshots of my hubpages traffic and amazon associates sales, please see my hub I wrote on my earnings.

      Congrats, but I am surprised that Amazon did better than adsense.  Usually the ratio is the otherway around with more adsense revenue than amazon.

        It's quite normal if you focus on sales hubs. It's easier writing a hub that sells a product a month for a $3 commission than an Adsense hub that gets the number of clicks needed to have the same success. At least, for me with my current level of understanding of internet marketing.

        That hasn't been my experience at all. My Amazon earnings are generally 3 to 4 times as much as my Adsense.

        Congrats Peter, you're off to a great start. Whatever you're doing, keep it up!

      That is fantastic - great work! I have been on hubpages for almost four weeks and have zero Amazon dollars, and $22.65 from Adsense. I am sitting at 4935 views as of a few minutes ago....

      Wow, that's amazing. I have been here for several months, and yet to make $4.00 total. Glad to hear that it is working for someone.

    I wonder if that is a record here.
    Anyone else have such success like Peter? hmm

      The guy from The Keyword Academy made $450 in his first month with 100 hubs.

          Yup, but that shouldn't stop us from aiming for the same - or better.

          If you can turn Hubpages in a business that adds $500 passive every month, that's extremely powerful. That's $72K/year after just one year... the price money is definately worth spending a lot of time learning the ropes for IMO

    Peter, I'm not sure which country you are from but October is spelt October not Oktober as you spell it.
    That said you have done fantastically well! Congrats smile

      Oh sorry, I was very tired yesterday? I'm from Belgium. Oktober is the Dutch way of writing October. Will fix it. Thanks.

        I intended a . and not a ? at the end of that first sentence. Just saying as I reread this and it could sound rude the way it's written now.

          No I understood. I thought you might have come from Germany, but then again the Dutch and German languages seem to be similar in a lot of ways smile

          I am surprised there on not more Dutch people here on HP considering almost total command of the English language is so widespread in Holland. I have always admired how good the Dutch people are at foreign languages. Here in Spain, the Dutch people do well because they are so multi-lingual.

      I'm glad you said that kmackey.  With all the good news on here, and that's great for those guys, I was beginning to wonder where I went wrong.

      Er. Congrats to Peter though of course. Well done.
