I've been on Adsense since the 20th and have about 77 hub views (for all 8 of my hubs) and one click-through. Am I headed in the right direction? It's been two days now...what was your first week or so like?
I know that some folks say that it takes months for them to see substantial earnings. I'd be happy with $20 a month as this is just a really fun hobby. I'm totally addicted, already!
Any advice is well appreciated. Thanks in advance!
You are write in the path. Many hubbers experienced first click after a month or two.
You are little faster in comparison to an average. congratulations!
Writing more hubs, viewing and commenting on others hubs, joining fan clubs and posting fan mails will increase traffic and clicks.
If you take it as hobby, please do not bother for $20. It will come naturally.
Yeah! The first click is something to celebrate.
May you have many, many more.
keep writing that is the key, and the ball will be rollin.
Congratulations on your first click. I don't remember when mine was, but it certainly wasn't that fast, so kudos to you! Keep on writing, sister!
Congrats girl girl! This is really wonderful to hear. Don't be too amazed because more is coming your way soon! I wish you more views and ad clicks. And you must start to give out your hub url to people, that will really help. Submit your hubs here free: http://submitexpress.com/ and http://searchenginez.com/submit.html. Good luck!
Thanks for those links! Headed over to check them out right now.
Misha - I'm not giving folks advice on how to make lots of money online. I have no experience, whatsoever with that. This person was referring to a hub where I just elaborate upon how I make a few bucks by using websites that are fun to use. Just thought I'd clear that up.
Here they come...! And i didn't here about how i owe the links or how they fetch me some scams or bucks? And please interpol is watching,if you make use of any of the links, chains, jail and gas chamber! O my...G! Misha take it easy with me, we are all one in one family, never meant to hurt. Just drop any clue you have to help this new hubber, she's full of virtues and power, check her hubs out, sure you will love them. Take care.
LOL Acco, you are not helping, you are hurting. Submitting to search engines is a complete waste of time. Hubs generally get indexed pretty fast, within hours, but if you want it to happen even faster on average, just ping your new hub...
Girly, I mostly meant Acco, thanks for clarification though
Please Misha how do you ping a new hub? I would love to learn too. Thanks!
Its unbelievable that that old fallacy won't die! There are only 3 search engines that matter, there is only one which brings any substantial traffic. Internet marketing 101:
- develop a site/page which is focussed on buying keywords which aren't too competitve
- build backlinks to the site which are anchored for your keywords
- rinse and repeat
its not fun, glamourous, or easy -but do the work you will make money
Misha thanks, i am happy girly is learning some tricks now on how to increase her hub views and ad clicks, "girly" expect more help ok? And do ask questions where you are confused, there are alot of experts here to assist you. Good luck and bravo!
Listen to lissie! She knows how to do it and always offers sound advice.
Content is king. If you write with relevancy on topics about everyday living, you will do fine. Check your earnings the same time daily and do not get disillusioned.
Your earnings will not increase if you do not write and contribute content consistently. Set a number of articles you plan to write everyday and stick with it. Based on relevancy and interest to others, your earnings should increase.
Also read up on Google Adsense and Keyword search to learn about ad placement and optimizing your writing . Be careful about using tools outside of hubpages or you may get banned. Hubpages has a good relationship with the Google search engine and the content capsules are quite helpful.
Hubpages just had maintenance done on the site a few days ago and sometimes that will cause a slight change in what you are use to seeing in your analytics. Everything gets back to normal quickly, so do not be concerned about a slight change in what you are use to seeing.
I've been in hubpages three months and I've had a total of five clicks. I'm maybe ten percent of the way to making my first nickel working through HubPages. I'll be really old before that happens. I write here because I enjoy it. There are good people here taking the time to read what I write and that is a very good thing.
$20 a month is the 3rd goal many look at achieving. It starts with $5 a month, then $10, then doubles to $20. If you think of this as a hobby, don't worry about the money-it will come over time as you provide your "hobby products" with viewers.

Hi MickiIf you've noticed I've not written any hubs recently, I'm on my vacations from University and thought of doing a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. Rather, I've gone for a 30 Wizzley articles in 30 days - for a good reason: Their amazon Capsules are way better formatted - users feel like...

I have <snipped -AdSense policy violation> impressions give or take and <snipped>clicks which gives a click through rate of about <snipped>% which i think is probably a little low.

I have just over 500 Google Ad imprints this month but no click through. Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
by David 470 8 years ago
Last month my click through ratio was <snipped>, but now this month it has dramatically reduced to <snipped>. This is horrible and I have the same amount of traffic similar anyway as last month. It looks as though I will have to produce 1000 hubs if my ctr is going to crap...
