Wow! What happened? Did I finally get it right? I thought the weekends were suppose to be the low earning days? Any ideas?
Dunno, but it was as good for me as it was for you!
The whole month of December 2013 was the best I have ever had, I earned more than double what I did in November. Monday the 2nd was my best day though..
For me, it was $3.02 in one day! I know compared to others it is not much but I don't consider myself a writer and obviously my earnings are not even covering my grocery bills each week but it is allot more than any other part-time job I have had in my career so it is allot of money in comparison because it just keeps giving!
Yay, well done! Maybe you just earned more because your hubs are stacking up and the more you write the more views and clicks you get.
I made a grand total of $0.01 this month! I'm thinking of quitting my job, what do you think haha?
I don't know if I'm right, but I always suspect school has something to do with increases in traffic and earnings. Seems that both increase when school is in session. Also, holidays. We do have one in February. The one with the hearts and the red and the romance and the et cetera.
What surprised me was "Sunday" - why Sunday? So you might be right about school. I don't have hubs centered around hearts so that wouldn't have done it - perhaps my Superbowl and Football hubs?
Yes, Sunday is odd for a good traffic day. But I've had good traffic on the weekends, I don't know what accounts for this. Maybe people are researching or entertaining themselves on the weekend, on days off from or preparation for school. You could be right about the Football Hubs, seems very likely to me.
I had a great weekend (month actually) and think it has a lot to do with the weather. 3/4 of the U.S. was stuck in the house with nothing to do due to freezing temps and snow. Whatever the reason, I'm happy. Hubs aging like fine wine and stacking up for increased possible traffic help certainly too but don't underestimate the weather. Summer usually brings much lower traffic patterns for me anyway.
In the summer people spend a lot more time outside and a lot more activities so I really think earnings would drop in the summer.
Crea8tor - Oh, you are so right - our hubs do age like fine wine - what a fantastic analogy.
The weather this year has been daunting - it is much more than just my age, the weather has been treacherous with white knuckle driving - I guess increased hub traffic is my tiny sliver of silver lining?
L.M. Hosler - It would be interesting to graph over time to see the seasonality of our traffic flow.
It's very encouraging to hear your success, a pity I wasn't here for Decemeber! Maybe next year will be the year for me.
Well don't get me wrong. The summer months can still provide good income considering you may not be on HP as much either but still collecting. I see 3 digit or near 3 digit numbers per month in the summer.
Please consider another topic to write on to supplement video games. Mix people not on PC with people not playing as many games for the same reason and you might see a big drop in traffic over the summer. The video games should be a good source regardless, let's face it those are played year round, just consider what people are looking for during different seasons and you'll balance your viewership somewhat. Welcome to HP!

Curious: Do you have multiple accounts, because your profile shows 68 hubs. I took a lot of mine and moved them. I let what I have left sit til it goes idle then I take remove it. I have over 80 articles, new ones, that...

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...
