Just want to share my happiness when I received today my first payout in the HP ad program. My Google Adsense earnings lag way far behind HP ad program. I don't expect to get my earnings in adsense at all. I'm motivated to write more hubs if only I have more time to do so. Thanks Hubpages.
Congrats! Just got my first payout today as well!
Me, too. I was cheering, even as it disappeared into the magic maw that is known as Necessityland.
That first one is indeed a great feeling. Congrats!
Btw, the other ones aren't that bad either.
Congratulation! Way long to go for me to get paid in HP!
Congrats to you, Sergs,
I just joined this week, only 2 hubs so far. I look forward to that day. By the way, I was turned down by Google Adsense for lack of content and that my website needed work. I was confused about the latter because my website seems to be fine and I get complements regularly. Anyway, is the HP ads program automatic or do I need to apply? Thanks :-)
Thanks everyone! Although this is just small, it's a good motivator.
Congratulations, Pogi! I'm happy for you. Here's to more payouts to come. Cheers!
Well done, its a great feeling getting the first payment.............but even better when its little brothers and sisters follow. Enjoy
First of all, congrats, s_p!! I still have my have my initial payout taped to my computer to remind me Well, Google saw fit to pay me $2-, but it serves as an-albeit distressing-reminder of things to come!
Congratulations!! It's hard work. but you need to build up quality hubs. My secret target is at least 1000 hubs!! Now no more secret!! (LOL)
The threshold for payout is $50. When you hit that sum, you are paid the following month and receive whatever the final balance was at the end of the month in which you reached the payout threshold.
Most people take months to reach their first payout, but it does depend a lot on how many hubs you produce, the topics you choose and on how well you can promote the hubs so they get found in the search engines.
Some people report that their rate of earning starts to increase quite rapidly once they learn the tricks of the trade and continue to produce good hubs. Others seem to be stuck with very low earnings.
Some accounts have been hit by Google algorithm changes, which caused them to lose many views or even disappear from search results completely. Some of these accounts have recovered within days, weeks or months, others are still hit after more than a year. Conversely, some accounts have really benefited from Google changes and seen their views shoot up dramatically.
Yes, this is quite useful, WriteAngled. I'm a newbie and hoping to see movement in the near future. I'm having trouble, though, getting Adsense. I applied too soon, tried to reapply, couldn't remember which IDs I used and have been going around in circles eversince with new passwords, trying different emails, etc. So last night, I appiled for my business website and blog. I hope that if that goes through, I can apply for hubpages as an exisitng publisher for a second account. It's been frustrating. I've done 6 hubs in the last 11 days, hope that suffices.
Once you have an Adsense account, you don't make any other applications. You simply use your code everywhere where you publish on revenue-sharing sites and also on your own sites and blogs.
You can indeed have an Adsense account in your own name and a second one in a company name. However, you say you have already had problems with your first application. I personally would not complicate matters, but would stick with the business Adsense if you are approved for that.
Best of luck!

Hello there fellow Hubbers!I am just so happy that I decided to share my joy with you! I recently received my first payment from Hubpages (after 9 months of trying to reach the $50 threshold). I know it sounds a bit lame since it took me that long just to get that much. But I already felt really...

I finally received my first payout from Hubpages since joining 18 months ago. It took a while. If Google haven't changed their algo I would have made payout about a month or two sooner. Now I am almost there for my first Hub Ad Program payout since the change by Hubpages.

I have just received my first HP payout on PayPal late last month (USD$60-something)! It was a long journey since I was not very active and I wrote on and off (I only have 31/32 hubs at the moment). To all the hubbers who are wondering what I am earning monthly now, I average around USD20/mo, which...
