    I was just looking over my online earnings figures this evening and discovered that in April I earned $140 on hubpages.  Wow!  These earnings include 3 eBay signups.  I like where this is going....wink

    Congratulations on your earnings for the month of April.  After four months at Hubpages, I should reach $100 for the first time in about ten days. Your post has made the goal of $100 monthly possible on Hubpages.  Great encouragement to others.

    Well done.  This is very good - especially from only 22 hubs!

    Just with 22 hubs sure sounds interesting. I am curious  did you do all the social bookmorking strategies recommended i hardly have time to do all that work. Congrats once again.

    Congratulation. Nice earning with only for 22hubs. Wish your earning will be grow up.

    @charanjeet kaur: I don't do any social bookmarking (not my thing)!  I do a lot of cross promotion between my pages here and on my other sites.  If you look at my hubs, you will notice that the majority of them are in one niche.  That may help.  Not sure.

    @packerpack $25 from adsense and the rest from eBay.  The majority of it was from the eBay signups at $28 each.

    Thanks everyone for your comments! smile

    That's interesting. When you say ebay sign-ups, that means they haven't really bought anything from ebay, right?

    1. Janet21 profile image82
      Janet21posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yes, it means that a new user not yet registered on eBay clicked through a link on my page and signed up.  Usually they bid and/or make a purchase as well.

    I didn't realize ebay pays that much per sign up. Thanks for the post. It gave me another avenue to try to monetize not just hubpages but my other websites too!

    1. Janet21 profile image82
      Janet21posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Just a note.  The eBay sign-up commission is based on which level they have you at (this is determined by a lot of factors and can flucuate month to month).  The levels are as follows:

      Very high $50
      High $40
      Medium $28
      Low $10
      Very low $1

      Hope this helps!

    congrats i make only $5 per month sad im a newbie

      Janet21posted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Since two of your three hubs are about making money online (quick and easy), I figured you would be a pro at this and earning way more than $5/month! smile

      p.s. Your two hubs on making money online look very similar to each other.  Just saying.

      Sorry to hear you were turned down by eBay.  They have been turning a lot of people down lately.  Fortunately, I was already an eBay associate when I signed up with Hubpages.  You can always try again.

    So ebay is strict in accepting associates. I hope I get accepted. How long does it take before you hear from them?
