Don't mind me, I'm just excited. Finally, I made my first 50 bucks and found one of my hubs on page 1 of Google search results. Happy times, these.
Congrats on the payout! It's a pretty important milestone for most of us.
Not to burst your bubble on being on first page, but google searches are most definitely searcher oriented - you visit your hub so google bumps it way up for you. Sign out of anything with google and tell it NOT to use your history in search results; you will likely find it further down.
Congratulations on your first payout! May it be the first of many.
Congrats! It took me much longer, so you're doing something right. I'm glad someone like yourself who writes seriously and writes well is successful doing this kind of work.
Congratulations for your first payout! I remember the feeling. Wish you all the best for your future.
Congrats! It is a wonderful moment and time for celebration!!
I looked and it has only been 10 months. Good job!
congrats, I have been working towards that front page spot for about a year now, couldn't do it with Squidoo, hope to do it here.
Congrats - Well deserved!
EDIT - just wanted to note I checked one of my most popular Hubs and it's page 1 in Google -
Big Congrats! I just met my first payout, but unlike you, it took me 3 years to reach it, LOL!
I clearly just got lucky. My writing certainly isn't anything exceptional compared to others here.
Not lucky, but you must be intuitive about the best things to write about and have good writing at the same time.
Yes, it is happy times! Congratulations! That is quite a feat. Especially for us hubbers when we are starting out, but it's worth it. Each milestone is precious. I just started off this week so I can't wait to reach my goals! Again, Congratulations!
I am far away from my milestone. But one day I will be in euphoria like you.
The first payout is always the hardest, JG. After this you should be on a roll. Congratulations.
Congrats and good job! I'm still waiting for my first payout. It will probably take a few more months as I'm only at month 3 and not even 2 months since I got approved for Google Ad Sense. You are inspiring me though to keep it up. Love writing for Hubpages!!
Getting to the first page of Google is such an amazing feat. What a satisfying thought to think that your Hub is out there on page one.
Your traffic and payouts should really increase from now on. The first payout is the hardest, and then your daily earnings will begin to snowball. Well done and I wish you many, many more!
Congratulations..... Here's to many more in succession!

Well, I would have made it sooner if it hadn't been for stupid Panda. But after a year, I finally got to the place where I've achieved payout in one month! Now if I could actually get a payout every month from now on, I'd be happy! I think I quite like HP new advertising plan after all.

It took three months, I guess that's not bad! Now if I could just meet that threshold every month I'd be thrilled.Today's my wedding anniversary, so this is a nice "gift"!

I just have to ask you to celebrate with me. After 7 months, I finally got a hubber score of 100. I never thought I'd see that.Of course, I don't know why, but I must be doing something right.

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.
