    I got a click today!  Between using HPads and the changes made to adsense I seldom get any clicks.  It's been two weeks since the last one (about 10,000 views), but I got one today!  I'm so excited!






    It was for a penny.

        How did you know?  And then I fell off the chair, landed on the mouse, and squished it's guts out! 

        But it was worth it - a real click!  Just think of that!

          Whenever Adsense mistreats me with no clicks or penny clicks, I go back to hpads.

            I've been on HPads for a long time now - that's really the biggest problem with adsense.

            I just wish they would put at least one adsense ad back - enough to collect a few $$ per month, anyway.

          Well you have 1c towards a new mouse at least - at this rate you'll get a new mouse in 2068! (OK I made that up, can't be bothered to calculate it).big_smile

            Well, maybe I can glue the one I squashed falling off the chair back together and make it last till then.  lol

      I like your spirit. Bully for you! Let's go camping and share some s'mores. They are better than a click. Sharing your pain. smile

        Way better, in fact.  I've got a week camping on the lake planned for the end of the month, too.  Looking forward to it. smile

      isn't a penny so fun smile

        Yes!  You can flip it.  You can put it on the train tracks and let the train squash it like my mouse.  You can feed it into one of those machines that puts the statue of liberty or something on it.  You can put it behind a fuse and shut down the town ( I did that as a kid - blew up the transformer on top of the power pole). 

        Thank you, Google!

      Thank you Cags - I'm glad that you are so excited for me. lol

    OK, so I don't really follow Adsense and have never really bothered to learn much about it. I have basically written it off. I using HP ads and doing OK with that. But this thread made me curious. I went to check my adsense reports, and in the last 7 days I've had 1797 page views and 1 click. Does that sound right?

      Given that I've gone over 10,000 views with but one click for a penny I can only shake my head in envy.

      A lot of people have ad blockers now or totally ignore ads.  For these reasons you won't see many clicks.  It's sad but true.  I get a check from google every eon or 2 though so I am happy wink

      1. wilderness profile image98
        wildernessposted 6 years agoin reply to this

        Yeah, I know.  The only ads I see are the popups that block what's behind them, and the only action I take is to look for, find and click the "disappear" button.  If it (or another one) comes back I leave the site.

      Truly, I've about given up on adsense.  I've got a balance of $70, but at the rate it's collecting funds it'll take several years to make that $100.  Maybe I'll kill HPads for a week and see if I can kick adsense over the edge.

        You might be pleasantly surprised. Adsense has been nice to me lately.

          You know, this might be the month to do that.  Get my payout from HP and turn it off to see what happens and maybe make payout from adsense as well.

          I had a problem with adsense a couple of months ago when I got dozens of clicks, all for $0.  Somebody playing games, I guess, but that seems to have passed.  For a while I got an occasional click but HP made some changes in the ad program and I lost those.  Maybe it's time to give it a shot again.

    I got more than $12 of Adsense clicks in one day a few days ago...

    ... on my blog,

    ... not on Hubpages.

      I used to get an occasional 10 or 12 $ day from adsense, but that was long ago.  Before HPads.

    Adsense is being very good to me, I feel very lucky.  smile

      wildernessposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      Well, I shut down HPads for a time to see if I can kick adsense over the payout.  Maybe it'll be good to me too. smile

        I hope your earnings overshadow mine,  I would be happy staying at the same income levels, and be the lowest earner on HP  smile

      They must be giving you mine along with yours. They've really been mean to me come July. lol

        I have no idea how I accomplished it but my views have doubled in the last sixty days?


        I hit payout for July this morning.

        They've been saving it up for me.  Already a couple of bucks today.

    wilderness it might be worthwhile trying to out some Adsense adds in a blog or writing for another site that has Adsense ads as well as writing for HubPages. That might speed things up a little bit towards the payout threshold.

      wildernessposted 6 years agoin reply to this

      I keep think that, but just don't have the time at this point to spread out. 

      Nevertheless, it's something that is very much in the works as soon as things slow down some for me.
