    In my case it took me about 10 months of trial and error with adsense. I got the first $100 from adsense but then got lazy so still building for my second, it's taking longer though.

    I published my first hub in January 2010. I didn't get serious till April. I just missed out on my $150 payout so should get it at the end of the month.

    I got one after six months but I think it was a fluke since almost 40% of the amount I earn during December. The second one arrived after another six months, which I think is more reasonable for me. smile

    It took 12 months, and now I seem to be hitting payout every other month.  Working towards hitting it every month, but that may take some time!

    Eleven months (I hit it in July this year).  Should hit payout again at the end of this month, I hope.

    Two years. The next one should be quicker.

      Three months for first payout.  I have always followed the same tactic - publish as many quality hubs as I can...

    It took me 9 months to earn it, received it in my 10th month. I received the second payout in my 12th month and have been having monthly payouts every month since then except one where I missed it by under $5.
