Making money

    Just a few quick questions.
    At what point do you receive a payout from the Adsense program?
    How long does it typically take to reach a payout?
    Do you have any recommendations to reach a payout faster?

      They pay out once you've reached $100.
      Well, that's if you live outside of USA, like me.
      As for your other questions... You just have to keep at it, write more, update a lot etc.
      The time it takes depends on you. If you write all the time, and use SEO etc, you'll probably reach payout faster!

      Good luck.

        I'm pretty close to a payout on the hp add program, I'm just no where near it for the Adsense program. I dont know. If I'm doing something wrong or what. I guess I'm just confused. I also have no idea what SEO is.

          I you are on the HP ad program you will make significantly less with Adsense because only one adsense ads will make money on each of your hubs. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/hubp … am-and-ads

          You can increase your Adsense earnings by creating a niche blog. Most of my Adsense earnings come from my blogs and websites and I collect every other month.

            I agree. I have my own sites and the few dollars I am earning from Hubpages at Google Adsense just adds to the total every month from my sites.

            Cardisa, you are right!  Google seem to be kinder to blogs.  Most of my income now comes from my blogs as well.

          SEO is 'search engine optimization.'  If you would like to know more about, see my Hub, 'What is SEO?'

          When you're in the HP program, your Hubs show only ONE direct Adsense ad per Hub, and that's right at the bottom of the Hub where very few people will click on it.  So if you're in the HP program, you will take months or even years to earn a payout at Adsense. 

          That's OK though - don't think of Adsense as a place to earn, it's really just a prerequisite for entry into the other programs which do earn income.

      I think everyone else pretty much summed your question up in their answers. I have a blog, and I make only a few cents from Adsense daily on it. As far as reaching payouts here on Hubpages, just continue to write and promote your hubs. I normally reach payout every other month, so I'm doing much better on here than I was a year or so ago.

      My first payout took about 6 months.. After that I began receiving payout each month, and have continued receiving a payout every month for the last year+.. Although I do not have any tips on reaching payout faster.

    If you are interested, the HP ad program is $50. smile

    MagKaye's right...Adsense will pay you out when you reach $100.00 (if you're a non US resident) .. and there really is no shortcut...keep writing and writing...AND WRITING ....

    1. Barbara Kay profile image91
      Barbara Kayposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      It is $100 for US residents too.

    1. As already said, you will have to reach $100 to receive a paycheck from adsense but if you want money faster it is good to enter the HP ad program where you need to earn just $50 to get the money and that too via paypal. If you are new here then it might take a few months before you can reach a payout, but if you are consistent then definitely you can get a monthly payout which might be bigger than $50

    If you are on HP, getting a payout from Adsense is next to impossible unless you have your own personal blog/website like Cardisa said. The key to getting payouts on HP is to write LOTS of hubs with great content. Be sure to follow the guidelines to get all of your hubs featured, as this will definitely boost your views. I currently have 49 (maybe 48?) hubs and I get a payout from Hubpages about three times a year. This is pretty low right now, but as I continue to write I know that the payout will boost up. My goal is at least one payout per month.

    Thank you all! I think I have a better idea of what's going on now. One last question. How much in taxes us taken out when you do reach a payout?

    1. Marisa Wright profile image99

      Nothing, it's your job to declare your taxes according to the rules of your country.

    Just wondering if there's something I'm missing, but my adsense account says I'm only earning from YouTube, and that I would have to add another link in. I did that and they wouldn't accept the 'hubpages.com' domain. My Hubpages earnings is going, Google Analytics is showing moderate views per day, but nothing from adsense.

    1. Marisa Wright profile image99
      Marisa Wrightposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Is your Adsense ID properly entered into your Earnings Settings? 

      Is the problem just that you can't see any stats about HubPages on your Adsense account?  If you're in the HP Earnings Program, you'll get practically no clicks on Adsense anyway, because there's only one Adsense ad showing on each Hub, right at the bottom.

          It really shouldn't be that hard, jhehe. 

          On HubPages, go to "My Account".  Click on the word "Earnings" in the top line. 

          Look at the section called "External Affiliate Settings".   Is your Adsense ID showing and does it say "Active"?

          Assuming that's all OK, go to your Adsense account.   Click the little "gear" symbol in the top right hand corner.

          To add HubPages to your allowed sites:

          Click on "site management" in the left sidebar.   You should see a list of "owned" sites.   If HubPages isn't on the list, click on the "unclaimed" tag and see if it's there. If it is, claim it.  If it isn't, go back to "owned" and type hubpages.com into the box.

          If you can't get that to work, click on Access and Authorisation in the left sidebar.  Add hubpages.com to the list of allowed sites.

              Aha, now I see the problem.   I got my Adsense account a long time ago, when you got blanket approval.   So I didn't have to apply separately, but I'm pretty sure you need to enter this URL:

              http://jhehe.hubpages.com/

                That was the first thing I tried, didn't work. Went onto Google forums, was told I needed to remove 'http://' and so on, even tried with and without 'www', it doesn't work. Keeps saying cannot have hubpages domain.

                  Mysterious.  Unfortunately I didn't have to apply by that method so I don't have any experience to offer.  Maybe someone else who's been through the process can help.  fingers crossed.

                    Thanks for the help, but Hubpages support wasn't too helpful. All they can give me was I am currently paid for Adsense ads through Hubpages earnings program and not through Adsense directly so balance for Adsense sits at $0 sad, but my Hubpages earnings program is going up smile

              The application form you are showing is used when you want to apply for a non-hosted Adsense account. You can only apply for a non-hosted account using websites that you own.

              To use the hosted Adsense account on Hubpages, all you have to do is associate it with your sub-domain (which you appear to have done already) in the Earnings Settings. Everything appears to be ok with your Adsense on HubPages.

              However, you cannot use your Adense Publisher ID on your own website until it is approved for non-hosted sites.

              Just checking something again.

              I said:
              "Click on "site management" in the left sidebar.   You should see a list of "owned" sites.   If HubPages isn't on the list, click on the "unclaimed" tag and see if it's there. If it is, claim it.  If it isn't, go back to "owned" and type hubpages.com into the box."

              You said:
              "As far as I know, I did that long time ago."

              So, does HubPages show up in the site management section, either on the "Owned" or "Unclaimed" sections?

              If not, the only other thing I can think of is to look at whether HubPages is showing under Unauthorized sites.  Unfortunately with the new layout of the Adsense account, I can't see where that's gone!

                Currently, it is owned. But it is Hubpages.com, could it be jhehe.hubpages.com? I added this link as well. It falls under Hubpages.com, but I still get the warning message saying Adsense is enabled for YouTube only.

                  HubPages.com is correct.   So there's no need to add jhehe.hubpages again, it's covered by that. 

                  It must be a setting somewhere else, but I'm mystified as to what it can be.

    I added hubpages into my adsense program when I joined and forgot all about it. Just checked and it has added a total of £0.18 (about 30 cents) to my adsense account in 8 months. Still, better than nothing, I suppose.

    Reach the threshold which is normally $100. If you get that by the end of a month you get the payment the following month on around 20th. For instance if you get >$100 before the end of March, you will receive the pay by the 20th of April. This is their policy.
