Thanks for that, yeh it has taken me over 9 mths and a little of my lonely blogs.
whats that about 10r 2 cents a week. No really to me it was an achievement. But I think cause just got there have to wait till end of august to have it sent out. And god knows where I will be in Oz by then. Oh well still fun. thanks again.
Congrats Eileen! We're obviously progressing at about the same rate as I finally got to the $100 mark in June!
Have you looked at how much you earned for the last couple of months? When I look at it, the only reason it's taken so long to get to $100 is that the first few months I earned pretty much zilch. But I earned nearly $20 in May and over $25 in June, so I'm expecting the next $100 cheque a lot quicker. Hope you're the same!
Well done Eileen :I hope you are going 2 keep writing on your big trip! Marisa is quite right: it took me until March to get my first check: 13 months! I just qualified for my next one! So look at your last few months earnings and multiple it out - you will be pleasently surprised!
Now nice as a check would be make sure you have adsense setup to pay you direct to your bankaccount: they have to confirm the bank account first so do that now while you are waiting for the end of the month. That way your money will appear soon after the 20th - not weeks and weeks after when u try to connect with your check!
Thanks everyone for that. Somewhere I thought I saw that they only pay to Australia by check. Maybe it was another program. Because I just went in again and I have got banks details inthere but it is still sitting unverified. Weird. I tried to redo but just stayed unverified.
Eileen - my account is in New Zealand but I suspect Australia is the same! Adsense needs to verify your bank account is yours. You give Adsense the account details via the My Account tab. They deposit a few cents into the account which have a reference code next to it. You log back into Adsense and confirm the code - then the account is verified ! You can do this now while waiting for payment Hope that helps! Oh and its paypal that only allows US accounts to be linked !
Eileen, I think if you change your options it may only take effect from your NEXT payout. So if you didn't change the option before you got to the $100, it may be too late. Don't quote me, though. I just know that's the way it works on some other sites - eBay,for instance.
Good to know Lissie - I still think I'll just let the cheque arrive, though. There's something nice about actually having it in your hand! And it will be in Aussie dollars so that's OK.
BTW I've been itching to reply to your comment on my blog about BANS vs phpBay but I can't seem to leave comments right now!
[Eileen - forgive me if I digress for a minute]
I upgraded to phpBay because it lets me show products available to Australia, rather than just products listed on eBay Australia, which is an important difference. Wayne introduced that feature specially for me (after I emailed him to ask whether the software had that feature) so I felt honour bound to buy the thing after that!
Thanks all, I have emailed them and they just reply that I changed it and said they donot reply individually so go in and check all forums for results. But I did that and it said to .....cant remember exact now but did all that and said changed. But I still have an unverified thing. so will wait and see yes I think I do have till the 15thso will see if anything alters before that date. Thanks again.
My 100$ is after 17 months with 20 hubs and HubScore above 90. Visitors on all hubs are about 100 perday. So, it's about 5 $ per month with 100 visitors everyday.
Well, it's not like that anyway. It's hard to make the formula. Adsense is about advertising and it does not depends solely on how many clicks you got, but also how many $ the advertisers put on their advertisement.
To my surprise, I earn 60 $ last month from HP. But when I checked my GA account, 37 $ is not coming from hubs, but my referral hubs. Between sad and happy.....sad because my hubs are not really productive. This month, I hope it happens again...While last 2 months, my earning was only less than 20$.
But I won't take my $100 first because my bank here will cost me for 30$ for issuing the cheque. No Paypal. Hics...
As you make more Hubs and spend more time getting more views, and getting views that actually have people who read and click on things will make you more. I like to look at it like a game of luck, because most people don't click on ads no matter how good they are...unless you make them yourself on your own site .
The hardest thing for me was making that first $100 in a month. Now I would be incredibly disappointed if that was all I made in a month. At this point, my goal is to earn $500 in month solely with Adsense (from other sites). I have come close and I certainly measure my Adsense money in the hundreds, but still not there.
However, I am hopeful. Always hopeful. This is one of the reasons why I am now on Hubpages. In addition to wanting to share information, I think it can help me in that endeavour.
That's great! I've been here a little over 4 months and am about 1/4 of the way there. I have seen a gradual increase in the last few weeks. Now if I could only add my $0.14 from Kontera I'd be over the hump. Keep us posted.
Pagan, Eileen and I seem to be progressing at about the same pace. I can tell you that I got to the "magic number" by writing 67 Hubs, (then going back and improving and tweaking them as I learned more about how to write good ones), and having patience!
I probably could have got there quicker if I had done all the stuff I'm supposed to do, like promoting my Hubs and optimizing for search engines.
The magic number, in this case, was hitting $100 in one month. If you do so, it generates a check. When folks are first starting out it takes more than one month to hit that amount. Sometimes, it takes quite a few months.
Big congrats Eileen!! im soo happy for you as i was in your very same shoes (high heels) just kidding, not so long ago and its a nice feeling, especialy actually recieving the cheque!! then cashing and then spending it!! then earning another....
I hope and am sure your next cheque will be earned much much quicker!
Hi my fellow hubbers. How are you? I would like to share my excitement today with all of you because I have reached 100 score for the first time at hubpages. I am very thankful to my fellow mates here, people who have...
I've been a member for two years but wrote the majority of my hubs over the last two months after I finally got motivated to do so. $100 is not very much to be honest but it just goes to show that making money online is...
