Do you get excited when your articles earn right away?

    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).  sad

      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 smile

        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!  smile

          Phew smile I'm just making sure I'm happy with every hub I publish and I'll continue to do so. I have made a few dollars so far but as time goes on that will become more.

    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.  smile
