I just did my 10th hub and found out that my latest hub is listed on PAGE 1 of both Google AND Yahoo (numbers 3 and 2 on page one to be exact!) My first hub to be listed so high!!!!
Is there a place for hubbers to post such good news and give hope to other newbies or to even let HP know about stuff like this and how thankful we are when we hit such milestone marks?
Yes, here! You are in the right spot!
You could also post this under HubPages community.
This is a good question. Bear in mind Google "personalises" your searches, so what you see is not what everyone sees. Because you've been looking at your own Hubs recently, Google will present them on your first page of results, but that doesn't mean much I'm afraid.
And then there's the sad fact that pointing out the success of a specific Hub often leads to the creation of knock-offs as people spin their own version based on yours.
Nice work! I did find it on page 1 also. It looks like an informative how to hub.
The forum can be a great place to post successes, but don't be too specific, like relache said.
Yup very true. And be very careful discussing earnings. Last year when I discussed earnings my HP account was hacked and my PayPal diverted. Jason from HP helped me out quickly but it shook me up. No more discussing earnings for me.
Not to scare you but there are some unscrupulous people out there.
Thanks everyone for your posts - I LOVE getting all the "pearls of wisdom" from more experienced writers such as each and every one of you and will use the information going forward to better my talents.
Please feel free to give me any feedback - good or bad, as I really want to continue to grow in this genre.

Is it better to earn incrementaly, 40 cents a day, or turn off the HP ads and enter the Adsense lottery, where you might get a zero or a $5 click?One is more sensible and the other more exciting, methinks! ;-)

WE are not allowed to disclose earnings, etc in forum or elsewhere. But, there are several hubs with earnings per month, hub scores, number of hubs etc by the same hubber. They list names of hubbers that they are...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column...
