I'm sure this question has been asked a million times. I know how obnoxious it can be, as I'm always on the writing forums for another site I work for.
Can anyone explain EXACTLY how you get paid here? I read the FAQs, but that didn't help. What the heck is an impression? How is money made?
According to my earnings, I have made 1 penny. (LOL) How did I make this penny?
I DON"T UNDERSTAND.
Basically, impressions are 'net lingo for 'views'. You can get a small amount (like 1c per 100 views) just for impressions. However to get serious earnings, you need visitors to click your adverts. Something you should NEVER do yourself or ask your friends to do.
Read the above link for more details.
Once you have an Adsense account, you simply need to connect it on the affiliates page - https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/affiliate/
Once it is linked, Hubpages will automatically show your Adsense ID on 60% of page views on your content.
1. Am assuming, you already have a Google Adsense account.It is the most important method to earn money through Hubpages.
2. Associate your Google Adsense account with the Hubpages - the views and clicks you get for HubPages Adprogram and Adsense will be automatically tracked (by the respective programs).
3. You need to configure the Adsense account in the affiliate page.
Go to my account==>Earnings==>Affiliate Settings==> configure.Give your Adsense code and you are done. Ads are automatically inserted, you dont have to do anything manually.
4. If you don't have an Adsense account yet, you need to apply for the same and get it approved from Google.
5. The payout from HubPages AdProgram happens through PayPal, once you reach the minimum threshold of $ 50.
6. The payout from Google Adsense happens when you reach the threshold of $ 100. Google has several options of paying you - direct bank transfer or shipping the check by courier - you can decide which suits you best.
It will take some time to start generating revenue through HubPages.

While I link my Adsense account, it directs me to Google, which then asks if I want to accept the association, I say yes, then it directs me back to Hubpages, but it just loads a blank page, nothing comes up. I could...

Okay, I just signed up like two seconds ago, and I am seriously confused. I can figure it all out (I think for the most part) on my own, once I get reading into everything, but I have one major question that I can't...
