That's a great accomplishment. But with your 700+ hubs, I'm not surprised. I hope you'll see that jump up to $100 per day this year!
It will be interesting to hear if you conclude that backlinking is the way to boost these results... Frankly I wouldn't be sure where to begin with that since it's hard to determine which hubs are producing the best results and which would benefit. Or would you just backlink to the ones where hubpages "stats" showed the most $$$$$$?
I was thinking over my achievements the other day - how each small step is a cause for a celebration - and that once I started to make real money - say a dollar a day I probably wouldn't celebrate so much.
But your post shows that there is always a next level up - a new target to hit - and that is what makes Hubpages so much fun.
Oh my I am so happy and jealous, if that is possible! No really, you well deserve it. Maybe one of this day for me too, I am at 2 dollar, (for whole time I have been on HP) woohoo...I am controlling myself to not buy a kitchen gadget I have my eye on. $8 more bucks and I can get it :-)
Thank you again, my friends! Several have asked if this was all from HP. Yes, all from HP. I have a blog and a website, but I don't think they've ever earned a penny. Actually, I kinda made them and forgot about them - never finished either one. lol
Habee, it is really cool to think that you have written about things that you wanted to write about, enjoyed writing about and just kept writing for fun, like some sort of fun having writing machine and have had this massive success! It kinda makes a person think that maybe they could lighten up on the less fun stuff and just do what is fun, as often as possible and find the sheer volume equates to several big hits for earnings
It's funny, Kirsten - some of my highest earning hubs are actually ones that I never thought would be earners! Many of them were just things I wanted to write about. Even some of my funny hubs that I wrote for the sole purpose of amusing my readers have been good earners. Go figure!
I really think that is cool! Especially when I think of how easy it is to think, oh I should write this over that even tho that is what I really want to write. The idea that you have had great success and not 'shoulded' all over yourself is a great lesson/reminder to just enjoy the chance to write and engage with readers
I've made close to $ 7 in a day and I was happy. I came $11 away from making a payout by the end of Dec. I really thought it would happen. However, I'll keep writing and by the end of January I hope I have a big payout. Habee, congrats! And with the number of Hubs you have, I can see how that's possible. I've improved my own writing and Dec is my highest earning month yet. It just seems the Christmas to New Year week was alot slower than I had anticipated. So it's a big deal that you had your largest one day payout during this time.
Question for Habee or others: do you track any of your Hubs in the Adsense urls? Since you have so many, do you bother to track any at all in the Adsense reports Google provides? Is it important for you to know which ones are making money?
Just wanted to give all you new hubers a boost and tell you that my work is paying off really well. I have written 21 hubs to date my last one being this morning and just checked my google adsense earnings for...

I just received an email from Paypal saying I had received a payment from Hub Pages. I have been in AdSense for 10 months and finally reached my first payout...happy days! Now, I am looking forward to my next and see if...
I finally did it I made my first $5 on Adsense today after 59 hubs and 3 months here. Their is hope for us all. thanks hubpages for the oppurtunity to make some cash no matter how small. I love it!!!!!
