I wrote 2 articles yesterday. One has already earned .64 on Adsense, and the other has earned .01.
I always take it as a good sign when they start earning right away, although occasionally, I'll have an article earn a lot for the first few months, then die off completely (even after I tweak it).
I must say that has never happened with my articles but I did earn some money after a while. But it's nice to see results so quickly
Waiting does usually pay off. I have 29 articles on another site, and I went from making .12 a month to $25 a year later. Time definitely helps!
Yes, i become excited whenever I get an organic visit.
Yea not as much, because like you said mine tend to spike early and then just kind of fade off. I guess that's because I'm not doing much SEO work to them afterwards.
What are you doing to promote them to keep bringing those earnings up?
I post them on Craigslist under "General Community" (and I do get quite a few hits from there, which surprised me at first), Facebook, Twitter, and my personal blog (when I remember, which I usually don't).
I'm kind of bad about article promotion; I think if I worked on backlinking and all that good stuff more often, I'd make a lot more money. I've been fortunate enough to have people link my article on their own; one of my EHow articles has over 70,000 views thanks to a site who decided to link to it.

Do you prefer working on a hub over more than a day, building it slowly and only by a few steps at a sitting. Or, do you like to get the job done and move on to the next hub as quickly as possible. Or, something else?

I have earned a payout of $879 for this month, from my account that is in Squidoo. Being a journalish, I didn't have enough time to make 'perfect' articles. I just let them stay there. I didn't earn anything in the...

I remember I left HubPages shortly after the introduction of the HP ad program. So I did not see that my earnings are still accumulating until now.

After a year of patiently waiting and writing, I finally earned my first adsense penny! I'm excited.
