Introduction

Another milestone reached 10 months after the activation of Google Adsense, my first payout. Hooray!

- Mar. 2017


Some Points...

  • 354 hubs published (80% featured)
  • 21 hubbooks so far
  • over 35,000 views
  • over 2,800 comments
  • 16 hubs chosen for niche sites
  • 97 followers
  • level VI commenter
  • Achieved payout of $50 after 10 months. My charity will be very happy.

Details

HubPages has undergone some changes over the last year. The primary change was the establishments of the various niche sites. Meanwhile, Google Search has also modified their search engine numerous times. These changes have affected search ranking not only of hubs but other websites. It is my hope that Google will incrementally improve their algorithm to weed out spam sites that seem to have the upper hand now.

Current Status of HubPages 3/27/2017

Update 6-11-2017 A new Milestone

Just published my 400th hub.

Summary

I never intended to make money publishing here on HubPages. My reward is just the ability to communicate my ideas and share with others. The $$$ is just icing on the cake. I have decided to donate all my earning to help the CCNY Fencing Team.

      Thanks Cathrine, you are so right. I still have a hub with suggestions on how to get featured. It works for me 95% of the time. Sometimes persistence is the key. HubPages have been hurt by google algorithms no doubt. Someday, they may get it right. I am just impressed how HubPages seems to get on the top search ranking of google. Some of my hubs show up on the first page results consistently...

      Congrats on your first payout. I've been on HP for about two and a half years. There have been so many changes over that time. I wrote a hub to celebrate my one-year anniversary. I gave advice to new hubbers. Last month, I deleted that hub. Most of the advice was out-of-date.
