    Just wondering how people are doing. My other account gets a payout every 2-3 months.

      The minimum payout per month is $50. So if you don't reach that number in a single month, your actual earnings climb until they reach that total. Then you get a payout.

    I used to get payout every month but this fell dramatically until the niche sites were created. I'm currently being paid every 2 months but increasing earnings suggest I'll soon be every month again (particularly if I get more hubs on the niche sites). smile

    Every month since about a year after I joined.

      Every month for the past two to three years.

    Every month for a long time. It helps to write a lot of hubs. I've written many that I deleted due to slow traffic.

    It took nearly a year and a half but now I get well over payout since June.

    It took 18 months to make the first payout, but now every month for the last 2.5 years.

    Every month, but back when I joined six years ago it took a while to start getting consistent payouts.

    I see you had five featured hubs that you recently deleted. I guess you're planning on focusing on your other account. That's a good plan since you're doing well with that older account. Just remember, you need to be patient and just keep writing high quality hubs on subjects that attract search traffic.

    I have two accounts that get payout each month, and a couple of others that get payout every 3-6 months.

      Can I ask what made you want multiple accounts and not just to put everything on your most established one?

        When Wrylilt took the decision to create a separate account, it was in the days when we had "sub-domains" on HubPages instead of just accounts.   Those sub-domains were regarded as individual websites by Google, so there was an advantage in creating a sub-domain that specialised in a particular topic.

        Some time last year, Google changed the way it regarded sub-domains.  It stopped regarding them as individual websites and instead, treated all our Hubs as just being part of the big HubPages site.  So there's no longer any real advantage in creating a separate account to specialise in one topic.

        Some people still like to have separate accounts if they're planning to write a lot of Hubs. Once you get over 100 or so Hubs, it gets hard to keep track of all your Hubs so it can be handy to have them on separate accounts.  Obviously you need to decide that upfront, because moving established Hubs between accounts is not recommended.

          Actually no - by that point I'd already got into my own sites. Although that's what a lot of people did, with the subdomains. I made my multiple accounts back in like 2011-2012 I think? I did it as a way to evenly split up what I wrote about. So this one is more for babies and SEO, then I have one which is based on Google suggest questions, then another one which was based around product reviews.

    I get them every month, except a few months in the past when everybody's hubs took a hit when Google changed their algorithm, after which time Hubpages took a bit of time to recover.

    But now ... every month.

    I have yet to reach the fabled "payout every month" plateau, and at this point I doubt I ever will cuz I don't have enuff time to devote to making it happen (besides, I suck at SEO).

    After earning diddly squat during my first year and a half or so here, I started getting something of a clue and now I have built things up to the point where I squeak out a payment two or three times a year, which is certainly better than nothin'.

      I see you've had several Hubs transferred to the niche sites so that's a good sign that you're learning!

      I hope you don't mind if I give you some tips.  First, never title a series of Hubs as if they are a series!  Remember, only other Hubbers will know it's a series - people arriving from the search engines will wonder why a Hub is titled "MORE something or other".  Regard each Hub as worthwhile in its own right and title it accordingly. 

      There's another reason to do that: SEO.  Google hates repeated titles and may regard them as a sign of spinning or duplication. So the fact you've got several Hubs entitled "Great Bad Movies" is a bad thing and may be affecting your chance of ranking on Google. Just use the title of the movie.

      Hope that helps.
