Hello. Even though my account claims to be two years old, I'm actually just starting. I signed up two years ago, decided not to write anything here, and recently decided to give it a try. I've got just three hubs so far, and if I'm in the mood tomorrow, I'll try and kick a few more out.
Traffic isn't so great, to be honest. I did my research, keyword-wise, but have yet to get any clicks. It's only been a few days, so perhaps I'm just being a little impatient. Still, I just thought I'd check in and see what the more experienced folks around here thought of what I have thus far. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Sorry, I should have been more clear - I meant clicks on ads. I've had at least a dozen views on each hub. Just thought I'd clarify that.
It is too soon to tell, but when you say you have done your research - did you look into the level of competition and amount of traffic available? I ask because health and insurance related topics are insanely competitive. I have no idea how competitive ferret cages are.
Yeah, I looked at competition - that's why I did cat insurance, not people insuramce lol. As for ferret cages, small pet articles are fairly niche, and I know I can write top quality ones (unlike many others, I regret to say). I have lots of critters of my own, so it's a passion of mine. Plus, we pet owners like spoiling our fuzzy ones by buying them things, so that should lead to more clicks. I hope so, anyway.
Thanks for the help!
My pleasure. Cat insurance is still quite a tough term though - so you need to be patient - it may well be doable (I haven't looked deeply) but it will still take time to get reasonable ranking and traffic. Certainly months/years rather than days.
you have to wait a bit to get clicks. Hubs usually take a few month time to get aged. As you have done your keyword research and some decent size hubs I hope you will do well.
Just a tips for you:
The 360x250 ads placed on top of a hub is the best position for ads to get clicked. You have added photos in top right position of all your hubs that pushed down the ads downward. If you place your photos somewhere else you are more likely to enjoy a better click through rate.
I got my first click after one month of time with around 15 hubs published.
So please be patient.
You're not going to get many clicks/views very fast with 3 hubs, unless you have a really good topic and keywords. Just keep pumping them out to the best to your ability, the clicks will come.
I did sort of the same as you! Signed up 2 years ago, wrote my first few hubs a year ago but only just recently started trying to get more serious about it. Like everyone else says, it does take time. In my first months I was making around $2 or so and already for the month now I'm at about $45 with adsense and Amazon combined which isn't much compared to many people on here but it's a huge improvement from where I started. You can do the same! Good luck!
