    I only have $5 to go to reach payout for the first time.  It took 2 years but I really don't count the first year because I only had 5 hubs that sat for a year so I figured it took about 1 year to reach payout.  Is it true after your first payout your next payout comes quicker?

      My earning nose dived after panda, but Amazon and eBay are up almost pre-panda so hopefully adsense will pick up as well.

      Just got my third check today.

      I don't get Amazon stuff as Amazon had divested itself from my state. :-P

    It took me 9 months to reach my first payout, then I received it monthly until Panda. when it went to two monthly payouts. I just missed a one monthly payout by a few cents this month, after activating my subdomain.
    Congratulations on almost receiving your first payout! It does get easier from here.

      I just got my paypal account hijacked a few days ago I hope that never happens with Google adsense!  kmackey I had $75 last month for some reason I have had some high paying clicks like one was almost $7 and another was $3 in change then the usual .1 clicks but I have a sudden spike in traffic the past few weeks.

      IzzyM 
      Are you doing ok with the HP ads?  It seem like when I don't earn well with adsense I do well with HP Ads.

          I might as well been I took care of my husbands mom for 10 years she was a diabetic with Alzhiemers it was the hardest job that I ever took on.  Hope to never do it again.

            That was especially hard because you were emotionally involved with her.
            It is much easier for strangers like kmackey or even myself to cope.
            You got the brunt edge.

        I wouldn't be able to tell you if my Paypal got highjacked as I very seldom log on.

        At the same time, I have tested things over and over again, and I still keep testing, but HPads plus Adsense come out on top each time. When I turn HPads off, my Adsense simply does not return to pre=Panda level, not ever, not even since the subdoman change.

        Hope this helps smile

      How did you put up 500 + articles up in 21 months?  I don't have a job and I can't seem to do that!

        I just was wondering because I couldn't figure out why everyone thought their earning got lower with adsense.  I don't see how it doesn't make since.

        I don't have a job. This is my job!
        At first, I found it hard to write with little or no viewers, but gradually my viewers increased.
        I also learned a little about SEO and applied my new-found knowledge to my hubs, and watched as my views doubled overnight. This in turn gave me the incentive to write yet more hubs. There was a stage when I was writing and publishing 3/4 hubs per day.
        Then Panda came along and decimated my views sad
        So, I started writing my own sites as well as a few blogs. Now with subdomains, traffic has returned, so time to write here again, I think smile

    What did they do about your paypal account?  I got to wait 10 day for them to investigate then I hope they will replace my money since they are insured and supposedly the safest way to do business online.

      Oh luckily I only had a few bucks in there so they didnt have to refund me anything but I couldnt log in and when I called they said my paypal email and password and bank accout had been changed by someone called ubnhacked or something like that name. It was obvious... but they changed everything for me. Hopefully it dont happen again...

      Tamron, re Pay Pal hacking - it has happened to me twice.

      The first time I woke up one morning (I live in the UK) to find a message saying that circa $850 was on its way to a person in the USA with a user name similar to a Class A drug. I was asked to confirm the transaction! Thereafter, I was told that the hacker had access to all my bank account and credit card details and told to cancel them immediately. I did so and my credit card provider insisted I notify the local police and get a crime reference number. You have probably never gone in to a smallish Scottish police station to tell them that someone in the USA has just hijacked your PayPal account and that you need to report it as a crime. I wish I could have captured the expression on the sergeant's face...

      The second time, it was someone in France who got access and PayPal hadn't contacted me - I was lucky enough to find out just in time. At that time, I found out that PayPal UK is based in Luxembourg and can only be telephoned from the continental USA!!

      Paypal gave me the official following recommendations:

      Never use the same password for PayPal as for anything else.

      Make sure you change your PayPal password at least once a month.

      Good luck with the investigations! smile

    Like Izzy, I received my first payout after 9 months here.  But I've been making more than the monthly payout every month for over a year now.  This month being the highest so far. 

    It's always a relief to make the Adsense payout in the first week or so of the month, but who knows what the future may hold for us?

      Randy your almost to the 100 mark congrats.  I think I will write a 100 articles then write a 100 articles some where else I am scared to put all my eggs in one basket after ehow and listmyfive I am still rewriting articles those articles due to those sites closing.

        Very wise.  Personally I would break it up even more - write one article here, then write one at Xobba, then write on at Excerptz, then write one at ThisIsFreelance, then start again on HubPages.  That way you're constantly spreading your writing around.

        The other advantage is that, if you can manage to write four articles on the same subject (one on each site), then you can link them to each other - instant backlinks.

    1st time I reached payout(after 8-9 months) the following month I missed it by £5 which was so close.. haven't missed it since.

    I'm topping my earnings up with jobs undertaken at oDesk now, I've been doing SEO and implementing meta descriptions into someone website code. I've got them up to page 6 for a specific keyword in a week when they weren't ranking at all.

    I love getting a Gmail as text message every month saying my payments on its way big_smile

    I reach payout every month, but I'm trying to double my earnings back to what they were before the Panda algorithm. Google is paying less per ad I think hmm

    I had got to the point of getting an Adsense payment every month prePanda, but have only just crossed the payment threshold for the first time since February.

      Same here, except I'm £2 away from Adsense payout rather than having just got past the finishing post.

    I reach payout every month. But when the Panda hit my HP earnings went down to 30% of what I used to make earlier. Fortunately I had not put all the eggs in one basket. So was still able to survive. My Blogs and HP Ad Program also compensated for some of the losses. Even after the domain change though there have been increase in page views and a slight increase in HP Ad program earning, the Adsense is still not anywhere near where it was earlier. But yes... I still make at least a $100 from here... from my 550 or so hubs here.
