      You could always go to google keyword tool (google it) to see what the cost per click is for  your keywords.You will have to sign into googles to see this feature. Go to column on the middle right and click on "aproximate CPC". You will know what your keywords are worth.

    snakeslane did you make money on adsense or on the hp ads program?

      It was the hub pages account. I just set up the adsense late last night. Still not sure if that is running. Got bogged down trying to figure out if I had properly pasted the url, way too complicated for me, but hopefully Mr. Google will let me know. Thanks for encouraging words hubbies (hmmm, just discovered a new meaning for that word, too funny).

        from what i understand so far... hub pages pays for impressions... so you will get paid (altho very very little) even if your viewers don't click on your ads... On the other hand, google mostly pays for clicks only so I have had very very little luck with google since, in my experience, people usually don't click on ads.

        Thats great! getting a google adsense account is a bit complicated but it good that you have signed up. It's better to have both so you can maximize your earnings.

    Just checked my account, everything is set up now and active (adsense,analytics) I guess the rest is up to me.
