My jaw dropped when I saw what Paypal is sending me this month.
I'd be discussing this elsewhere - but Facebook is down!
Sounds like congratulations are in order.
Not really - I make payment every month but it's usually a lot more...
Ah, my deep apologies for the misunderstanding. It's been a bit of a lean summer, traffic wise.
Your forum entries are usually negative and recommend that others move their hubs to other sites. If you are following your advice, which I assume you are, then you have less hubs. If you have less hubs you are going to be earning less money.
My payout each month is not increasing much but then again I have not been posting new material here. It is still enough.
You're surmising that every hub makes the same money and that is patently not true.
You're also surmising that I reduced the number of hubs recently - and that's also not true. The ones being moved at present are for the most part ones which have been unpublished for a while - so make no difference to earnings.
I'm only moving content because the way I share information is not liked by HubPages even if Google absolutely loves it and is sending me oodles of traffic to the new sites.
However I'm doing it in batches so as to make coherent sites when I set up new ones. I haven't prioritised ones which I know (from Squidoo) actually earn well because that's not actually my major priority - I make my sites to share information.
Interestingly - and here's the POSITIVE bit - whatever actions HubPages have taken recently (or maybe it's the new Google algorithm) means that my earnings have now gone back up to near what they were prior to the summer.
There was just something very odd going on in June thro Augustand over and above the normal dip in traffic.
I suspect the extent to which people have been affected depends on the extent to which their earnings are derived from Google AdSense or Amazon
Besides the normal reduction in ad spending that all companies not exclusively focused on summer activities engage in every single summer season, and the annual reduction in human presence online as people enjoy longer daylight hours, warmer weather and take their longest vacations of the year, you might want to consider the overall reduction in health of the U.S. economy.
It's been steadily going south for a few years now, and no one wants to admit how Americans are spending less on advertising or shopping because our government is being run by businesses now.
Is that really the case? I'm sure everything I've read says that online spending trends are still going up albeit I think the exponential increase is snow slowing as it becomes more the norm.
Here's a forecast for continued growth https://www.internetretailer.com/trends … 2013-2017/
I'm just beginning to wonder whether the level of payout relates in any way to the extent to which HubPages actually manages to update every day - on a routine basis.
Yes, I realize that the top hubs earn a lot more. I am not keeping track of what you are moving to other sites.
I have to say, I was shocked too.
The Balance History page only goes back as far as 2011, but I just checked and August's payout was the lowest I've ever received, by a country mile. September looks as though it will be slightly better but not by much.
W-w-wait, what? OHMIGOD EVERYBODY RIOT IN THE STREETS! FACEBOOK IS DOWN! IT'S OVER PEOPLE! WE DON'T HAVE A PRAYER!!
...sorry. I just always wanted to say that.
You should go to Twitter and check out #Facebookdown hashtag - some of what's being posted is very, very funny!
Mine was pretty good. I had forgotten it was payday.
But we can all breathe easier. Facebook is back up.
OMGosh ! FB is down? Disaster ! Got my payment, too. Yippee!
Oh - FB back up Rochelle says.
And again.., https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8AT_Pbtyid0
Mine aren't down that much. In fact they're up since last month. I guess women are still getting pregnant. Woot! I guess that's what people do for fun when they're broke...
Doesn't pregnancy have a marked seasonality?
There's a pronounced peak in births in September and March/April associated with 'rumpy pumpy' (as we call it in the UK) during the holiday seasons i.e. at Christmas/New Year and on summer holidays.

Can I?I have a couple of smaller accounts. As Amazon currently operates, my earnings go into one pot. From what I can understand, that won't happen once HP take over my Amazon. Or am I wrong?If I'm not, why not? I am going to lose out as it is, and I can't see the separation of my HP accounts being...

I had hoped to make my first Adsense payout this month - if I could once more double the previous months earnings it would happen, and I've seen that or more every month since beginning to write.Unfortunately, the past week has been poor, and it doesn't look good. I expect to be about 4 or 5...

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.

Hi all,I have been keeping a careful record of the Kontera earnings, since someone commented, and I noticed, that my earnings seemed to be hovering just under the payout level, month after month.I have now discovered why.I saved the detailed report each month for a couple of months, and I have...

When the numbers come in for this month, I should reach my first payout. Do I need to do anything to get the payment or is it automatic? Also, do you have to reach $50 each time to get paid or do you get paid monthly after the first payout?TIA!

I was just wondering if anything had changed, since I still haven't received my payment today.
