Hi All: Let's see....cruising along on the way to pay out this month and in the last week my earnings per day went from $1.87 to $1.75, to $1.57, $1.04, $1.04 and now to $.75, will miss payout by less than a few cents. My question is has this happened to others also and is it because HubPages is: A. Desperate to get you to promote your articles more B. That hard up for $50 stinking dollars C Just your ordinary content mill garden slugs This is where all the rah-rah hubbers can chime in and tell of what a great site this is........
sort by best latest
Exactly 2 Google ad clicks on over 100,000 page views since I've been here. The odds of those numbers happening are statistically astronomical. I don't intend on staying here - site is a joke and just another content farm for you cheerleaders.
Whatever - I was trying to explain to you why earnings do that, but you'd rather be angry so I hope you figure out another site that works better for you. Have a nice day.
"It's not a conspiracy, but if you hate it so much here, why stay?" - doesn't sound angry? Gee, please tell us all more how Google Adsense works.....
you asked if HP was engaging in dirty tricks and I answered you - no anger. You don't want to listen, you want to believe HP is out to get you - so be it.
2 Google Adsense ad clicks on over 100,000 page views would speak volumes to any reasonable person......"Shared Revenue" lol
This month I was .40 cent from getting paid by adsense (not HP) AFTER their recalculations of estimated earnings. This is part of the process, we know this going in. Don't like it, don't do it, but if u can deal with it there is money to be made.
Yes....part of the process. Keep all of the Amazon, Ebay and Google revenue. My earnings on all of those combined in five years about $2.50 Nobody who KNEW this would ever write 3 words for this site.
I'm curious what percent of people who have been here 5 yrs have yet to be paid by google adsense. My earnings are good there, and I'm not that good of a writer. Though I have done little to nothing with ebay and amazon.
Yeah, me too. Funny thing, just turned off Hubpages access to my Adsense account and my money went up considerably in the last three hours since on Adsense.It may be possible that being linked to any "content farm" is a negative in the eyes of Google
Wow...man, just wow....Anyone that believes a Google Adsense click coming every 50,000 page views is reasonable or even possible is not living in reality. I've been writing online for 7 years, and have a dozen websites of my own that actually earn me
If you're successfully making money from a dozen websites, why did you come to bash hubpages?
Why are you defending a site that throws you an Adsense click every 50,000 page views? You've not only consumed the Kool-Aid here, but are now misleading newbies that believe your company rhetoric. You're quite helpful - at spewing the PR nonsense.
