One Month at HubPages with Panda: Compare Your Stats and Earnings with Mine
I actually started with HubPages in July 2008. But after writing three articles and seeing neither hits nor income, I got discouraged and left.
I returned with another article on May 20, 2011, and finished my last article in this tally on June 22. So that’s a little over a month for these stats. (Stats outside this period are excluded.) Because my return happened after Google Panda happened, there’s no way to compare current and previous stats.
Here are the relevant statistics on traffic, visits and earnings:
92 (Down from 95 yesterday, having published only one article yesterday)
92 for "The Highest Paid Doctors in the USA" (6/08/11)
58 for "The Highest Paid Dentists" (6/22/11)
8 for "Can you help make this the most commented hub on Hubpages?" (6/20/11). I avoid commenting on my own hubs unless necessary."
8 total for "How to Type French Accents and Words" (6/3/11)
Total Page Views:
Ad Program Earnings
Amazon Product Link Clicks
Amazon Other Clicks
I have an eBay account but have been unable to access it because I don’t remember my password. I’ve tried their Forgot Password feature several times and have never gotten an email. I’ve also tried contacting them on their form, which is never working. If anyone knows how to get around this, let me know.
My articles cover the following groups so far: health, jobs, languages, model railroading, tech and travel. It’s too early to tell yet which hub gets the most views per day, which I get by dividing their total views by the number of days they’ve been around.
My average writing consists of three hubs a day, with as many as four and as little as one per day. I’m hoping to bump that up to five a day or more since my head is swimming with many topics.
I do not know which of my hubs is responsible for earning me what amount, which is frustrating. To see my actual articles, click my Profile Name.
My total earnings for the month were $2.60, which is about six cents an article. That is not an exciting amount, although it’s money that wasn’t there before. That number should go up with more articles, which will continue to earn in the coming years.
I publicize my hubs on Twitter, Digg and with a few relevant postings at related forums. Twitter has produced no visits, though Digg has brought in one person. Most outside viewers seem to come from the forum postings and Google searches. I must be the only person in the world who isn’t on Google but I’ll be signing up soon for marketing purposes. There’s certainly much more to do in terms of marketing, and that may be the biggest factor in increasing views and cash.
So, what do you think? How does this compare with your stats? I’m interested to see how others have been doing. Feel free to put your own stats in the Comments below.
I got this idea from mskills’ hub called First Month At HubPages From A Post-Panda Newbie. Check his out as well if you want some comparisons.

The Panda apocalypse is over. Can a newbie still experience great success by joining HubPages? I think so, but with some reservations.
