Just got my 10th featured hub award! And my first 51 cents!

    Hi hubbers!  I just reached my 10th featured hub and am hoping to find more followers.  Unfortunately even with 10k+ words between them I haven't yet been accepted into Google Adsense due to lack of content.  Any advice with this?  Perhaps I need better traffic still.

    I was thrilled to finally get my first amazon affiliate reward of 51 cents.  I had sent over 500 unique users to amazon before someone made a purchase so perhaps my earlier methodology just didn't prompt conversion.  I believe I am getting better as time goes on, a few days away from being a month old on this website.

    I hope everyone is finding success and enjoying what they do here!

      Jason, HubPages' advice on Adsense is outdated - I do wish they would change it!

      In the last six months or so, Adsense seems to have raised the bar yet again. Now, it looks like you need about 20 featured Hubs to get accepted.

        I have 11 hubs, and have submitted an application.  I will reply here when I get it.  I applied when I had 10 hubs, and was rejected.

    Congratz on the award! Wow, I am so thankful I stumbled upon your forum. I didn't know about the advertising on amazon! I had link's going towards them but didn't actually use it in the hub format.. lol! I may have had tons of buys but didn't get the money for it. Keep up the good work though! I hope you get all your goals.
