    Recently I have observed that whenvever I signup and do some activity in Hubpages - like Posting a New Hub or commenting other pages or analysing some topics in Hubpages... My earning is less.

    When I Log out and again Re-Login between these period my earnings are More..

    Anyone observed these .. or just coincidence for me..

    Two Days there was problem in my computer and I was unable to login and that day was my Highest Earning for that Month...

    Any views about these.. please share..

      I gave up a long time ago trying to figure out why my Hub score and AdSense earnings rates fluctuate.  Both Google and HubPages have their secrets about this, and mostly, I don't think about it or try to analyze it.

      But two things are certain.  One, if you write original, rich content, you will be rewarded.  Two, if you look at your AdSense earnings every day without looking at where these earnings are coming from (by looking at Google Analytics, for example), then you will drive yourself nuts.

      HubPages is not the venue for instant money gratification.  Slow and steady wins the race here.

        If that's the case. I'll persevere.

        I am a newbie here, so I am gathering more information on optimization.

        I think the posts here are helpful.

      Dad, the opposite is true. What you have observed is just a coincidence for you

      If we quit hubpages, our earning will increase?

      How is it possible?

    I haven't notice such a pattern in adsense earnings.

    In fact, if you take active particpation in hub activities, you get better ranking in google which lead to more visitors to your hubpages.

      That's what I've noticed too. I can't imagine that absence of Hub Page activity can benefit adsense earnings.

    Your absence or presence has nothing to do with earnings or page views. Both earnings and page views are related to relevance of your hubs with happenings in the locality/state/country  to that they relates. For eg., page views on hubs related to  Christmas themes are expected to have more page views during 2nd fortnight of December.It could be a coincidence that your absence from HP coincided with such types of occurrence.

      Hi Henrytom

      Your adsense earnings depend on a number of factors - your hubs should contain fresh, well-written, interesting content. I see that you have so far only published one short hub.

      I would advise that you write more hubs with more content. You'll find that the adsense earnings will start to come in.

      One hub isn't going to do much. Especially one so short.

    I have always wondered how that works, thanks!

    I think once I figure out the google analytics properly, then I will know more about why my adsense account balances rise on some days but not so much on others. I haven't found that 'activity' at hubpages causes any lowered balance, but I will keep this in mind now.

    I'm kind of with "Sally Trove" on this issue (stopped trying to figure out how google works) - I realize that I need to just make my hubs better and not attempt any 'hit' tactics with google or any 'activity spurts' at hubpages just to cause increased traffic. If I show up and post on others' hubs or in the forum when I am 'in the mood' for this - okay - but if I force myself to do so to gain 'hits' or try to just 'be active' here, my comments are cranky and flaky lol So I figure most people don't appreciate me much when I try to just show up 'to make cash'

    I've found - it's better to log in here when I have something 'reasonable' on my mind to write about - then set about to make a decent hub (oh, lord knows I have some bad ones, too, that still need fixing - no amount of google hits are gonna fix those ones lol)

    Anyhow - thx all for the responses - and thx, Trsmd for the topic - gives me more to think about.

    The frequency at which you publish hubs or check your HP account or Google account, isn't going to affect your earnings. If that were the case many of us wouldn't be making nothing, as many of us check out HP accounts daily, if not several times a day.

    I never really worried about how to make more money. I just assume that by writing more detailed hubs, I'll have more possibilities to making more money in Adsense. I just write to help others, and in doing so the more hubs I write the more I find in my Adsense account each month It's a win-win situation, I think.

      My sense is Whitney has hit the nail on the head.  (And she has the experience here to know what she's talking about.)

    AdSense earnings do relate to active participation in HubPages but it's NOT *your* activity that effects your earnings, it's the activity of your Hub visitors.

    I have been a hubber for a year and not received any adsense earnings from here yet.My adsense ID is in place.Perhaps I should participate more in hubpages and see if that helps.

      Well, "Flood your site with Social Traffic," lol , I can't go on........ lol

      You may want to rethink your hub topics.

      Not as easy as you thought huh?

    Ha ha, good one Mark smile

    Social media works, but I guess the correct medicine for this one is participation and building more hubs that are information rich and gives value.Those who build hubs just for money are doing it for the wrong reasons.

      Well, you can do both, but it takes time.

      ZOMG. So wrong.

      Lots of good hubs = Monies

      2 Hubs = No monies (Unless you write two major resources people can't live without and add promotion, back links, etc)
