I seem to be having the opposite problem many here have. I get clicks on my own websites for Google adsense, but hardly any on my hubs.
I've started to make a post on my own site and a hub on the same subject. They are on the same subject but wrote differently.
My site articles always rank higher than the hub one, and I get clicks on my article but not much on my hubs.
In fact I had my best day a few days ago, $14.64, but not a single click on hubpages!
Granted I only have 18 or so hubs I think. Could that be the main problem? Do I need to get them up to 100 or so? You also get 100% of the clicks on your own site also.
Just trying to figure out how to get clicks on my hubs when I get them on my own sites.
If you are getting traffic to your own site, Great! The most are having trouble to get google to come and find your material.
With all respect to the great people, if my blog was getting more visits than hubpages, I would spend more time there. You get 100% of the profit.
Many people will say they make more from hubs than their own pages. others, including me, don't find this to be true. I think the advantage to hubs is they are easy to make so you can just try topics out.
Yes, there are many different subjects I would like to try out, and they would not do well on my sites.
Writing about digital cameras on my theme park site I'm sure would not rank well at all, and get no clicks.
Whereas one on hubpages in the right category would get good ranking.
I guess I just need to write good articles on the right subject on my sites keeping with the theme. Then use hubpages for off topic hubs I want to try.

I'm not being funny here,the hubstats yet only change 3 or 4 times a week, if you are lucky.Not to mention hubs take over 24 hours to publish. No mentions about it on the blog, no apologies, it isn't like the issue...

When I get a good idea for a key word to write a hub about I also write another article about the same subject in my blogs. No sense in wasting a good key word on just one hub.In fact if you do it right you can see...

Last night I published a hub called 'How Birth Order Affects Personality Traits.' Today I got a comment which said something to the effect of 'this is a great hub compared to the others I read on the subject.' So it...

I recently posted about how I finally seem to understand how to get adsense clicks, and how my clicks have gone up.That is all true and I'm happy about that. HOWEVER, all the clicks are coming from my own sites and...

I am working on one of my new websites - and I want to link back to my hubs here. How many times is this OK to do on a website page before it is overkill?
