    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.

        Further down, but still front page.

      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.

    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.

      1. Barbara Kay profile image92
        Barbara Kayposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        Not lucky, but you must be intuitive about the best things to write about and have good writing at the same time.

          JG11Bravoposted 4 years agoin reply to this

          Not at all. It's pure trial and error. Most of my hubs get one view a day, on the average.

    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!!

    Congrats!!
    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. smile

    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!
