Me too. Thanks for posting, Habee. I wouldn't have known if you hadn't posted (which made me go check).
Hi Habee and everyone else,
Still trying to figure out how the payments come rollin' in.
I went to the FAQ but found nothing there.
OK -- so I've only been with you for 12 days and have managed a whopping .74 cents. Somebody clicked on a Google Ad I guess -- it shows 2 clicks.
You say you got a cheque for $200.00. I see that you have been with Hub Pages for 22 months and have written tons of hubs and have a zillion followers.
How the blazes do you get people to click on the ads -- perhaps even buy something through Amazon?
I realize you have to write Hubs but just how many and how long (do you think it should take) the average Hubber to collect $100 or so -- 2 , 3, 4, years?
Perhaps you can't answer this but I've read Hubs from people that are supposedly working full time at this and making over $25,000 a year. Is this true and if so, is there a secret to this that only a chosen few know about?
I wrote about the secrets of the Masons, and No - I'm not doing any promotional stuff here. I am not a Mason but do you think it's time I became one? Would this help? (humor folks - just humor).
OK - OK - I'm only kidding around. I really enjoy reading all your hubs and writing a few of my own but do you think I can actually supplement my Canada Pension with Hub Pages?
Thanks all for reading. I can't wait to hear the secret.
Learn to pick topics that are high traffic but low competition. For instance you won't be able to get many visitors to a hub about weight loss - it's too general and too many big sites have the front page of Google.
Real people click on adverts so it's random. You need to work on getting traffic from search engines, and the money will follow.
The average hubber takes 6-9 months to reach first Google payout and usually the time halves after that.
It takes work but it is possible.
ianlevertte, it is true. I make at least $2000 a month from HubPages. Unfortunately, with the new HP Ads, I think this will drop drastically. My Google Adsense account is severely hurting bc of this change.
I'm not sure how HP ads work. I assume similar to Google Adsense. If it is, then there's no real way to determine how the change adds up.
I recommend, writing, writing, writing. Writing what you know. Write what you want to learn about. Write about books, hotels, movies, etc. Write how to's, tip sheets, etc.
It takes time and many hubs, unless you do a lot of marketing. Everyone is different in how fast or slow they earn and at what frequency.
Habee, I got my notification too!!! Yay!

Hello Hubbers,I made 12 hubs between December 2009 and March 2010, which means I have 12 hubs that are basically just about one year old. I would rate them as somewhere between pathetic and woefully inadequate at best,...
