Hey there! I was just wondering how long it took you to reach your first Hubpages pay out? If you've been with Hubpages for a few years or so, do you now get payments regularly, or does it still take a few months to get enough traffic? I've only been with Hubpages for three weeks or so and I'm very happy with the progress I've made so far - although, at this rate, I won't be getting paid anytime soon!

Thanks for answering! Do you get a lot of traffic from google? I've been a member for 4 weeks now and I've only got about 20 views from google - hopefully it will improve over time!
I have almost 12,000 total views, and about 50% of them right now are from Google. The percentage of total hits from Google though is going up the longer I'm on HP. My first full month, it was about 3%.
Most of my views right now are from facebook and stumbleupon, though I only have about 1,400 views so far. Hopefully that'll go up if Google decides it likes me!
Your followers will help your numbers, too, especially if they share your Hubs. My second biggest source of traffic is HP.
You don't have to sign up for it, you just start it whenever you feel ready - you can read the rules here: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/17849 . Good luck with your goals!
Hey! I try to get as involved as I can by leaving comments on Hubs and in the forums, answering questions.. I've also been taking part in the 30 Hubs in 30 Days Challenge so I've published quite a few Hubs in just a couple of weeks. Hope that helps!
Hi Rebecca, I'm new to Hubpages and today I found your question. It was 3 months ago and I wonder if you got your first payout? :)
