Ha, ha, which one? I've never made a cent on Hubpages, never got my Adsense approved. Hubpages has made money on my posts though, with the adds and all! I finally got tired of providing my hard work for other people, sorry!
This reply is to joanveronica - you are an incredible writer! Just looked at some of your Hubs and very much wish I had time now to read more. I don't have that time right now - but will definitely return. Can't imagine what TOS you're not complying with - that's Google for you! - but you get my up vote every day of the week!
Based on all the posts I'm seeing, the internet is indeed one tough town. For those who aren't already, make some bucks with Bubblews while they last... I think I've hit the magic $25, but I'm not sure since the site is down again. I know one thing for sure. I'm not going to hit that green button until the site is acting stable. Besides, maybe I'll just sit back and admire it for awhile.
As for HubPages. It does pay to nurture one's account. I've seen an increase in traffic since I threw out most of my divider bars. Could just be coincidence. Who the heck knows these days?
I think I remember one of the staff members posting that if they changed the Hub format or something like that, the divider bars would pose a big problem and make the Hubs look less professional. Something similar. Personally, I really like using divider bars. They divide the text up evenly and make it look organized.
I might buy shares in Bubblews or spend part of it on a round the world cruise and the rest on the purchase of an apartment in New York. (To those who are stupid and would rip off my hubs, this is a joke!)
Divider bars are thin to thick lines that divide certain parts of your hubs into sections. There are many types of divider bars, from coloured ones to ones with patterns etc. I don't use them that often, since the staff discourages them. I have used them on one of my hubs, perhaps the image below will explain them better. Try searching HubPages for hubs about line dividers, you can make your own too using the Snipping Tool if you have Windows. There are hubs that include line dividers made for you to copy and use in your hubs, always remember to add attribution. The line divider in the image below is used, with permission from Sharkye11, a Hubber here on HP.
You save them as images and insert them as such. I use them because I feel like they divide up my text better so I don't have a big wall of text. I don't like using actual pictures to divide up my text because there isn't always something relevant I can use and I feel like they detract and divide too much.
My fifth month and I will probably make around $15 dollars. Although the last 3 days are stil pending payment so they appear as zero with an *. Last month was $11 dollars, so my earnings increase month after month, and I haven´t published nothing in more than 3 months! So I like Hubpages for this.
I think my first withdrawal will be next month if I make more than $15 dollars, and I will use the payment to decrease my credit card debt. And when that is done I´ll use to feed a savings account to purchase a car. Hopefully by that time I will be making hundreds of dollars becuase I´m getting the hang to SEO articles.
Same as I do every month - bills! This month it will be for the latest installment of my football (soccer) season ticket for Rangers at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow. Thanks HP - you're paying for my ongoing attendance at my spiritual homeland...
Maybe a couple of penny candies? I've never had a payment from HubPages. Of course, I'm only in my 29th month, so I can't complain. My highest month (once) was a few cents over $5.00, but more often it's less than $1.00. So at my current rate, I'm looking forward to my first payment around, oh, maybe March 2014.
I'm just curious to see what the average is for newcomers to earn in their first month. I know that the more hubs you have, the more impressions you'll have and potential clicks, but I'm really interested in...
A very kind soul noticed a month ago that I need to learn how to break up my text with photos or something between the paragraphs when my text is long. She explained how to do it. I tried and couldn't grasp...
I am writing articles for this website since past 3 months. At present, I have 38 featured and published hubs. I have joined for Amazon and google Adsense program. Past two months I earned like very less amount, less...
