Hi, i just started using Hubpages in the last week, and i have 4 hubs, with a total of almost 200 views, but i have yet to make any money on google adsense, how long did it take for you to start making money of this affiliate program, also have any GREAT advice for a beginner like me?
It truly varies from person to person.
I have only been around for a few weeks, but I have already met my original (really modest) goal of a few extra bucks a month ($25). Not a lot, but I figured that writing a few articles and sitting back and watching a little passive income add up every month wouldn't be too bad. According to my adsense account, I'm already well on my way of earning about twice that every month. Hopefully, I'll get my first payout next month as it is increasing on a daily basis because of the increase of search engine traffic.
You have to write lots of articles to earn. Not all of mine get hits. Only about 10 are earning on a constant daily basis, I currently have 60 on various topics. I'll have to write another 60 or so articles to earn something a little more substantial.
However, I'm quite certain that people are wrong when they say to just "write, write, write". If you write about something that no one is going to search for in google, no one is going to see your ads!
Therefore, it is highly important that the articles you write will attract search engine traffic; search engine traffic is the only way to make money. Hubbers don't click on ads, but visitors from google and yahoo do!
Good luck to you!
200 views is but a single step, grasshopper.
I get over 10,000-20,000 views per month on Hubpages, and my resulting Adsense revenue is usually less than $60.
I make a lot more from Adsense on my own sites, but you have to work harder to get traffic to your own site than to a Hub.
It takes most people nine months or so of regularly publishing Hubs (say, three a week), before they get their first $100 from Adsense.
Roll up them sleeves, and get typing - 4 Hubs done, 116 to go ...
I love the way hubpage writers encouragement to newbies. You have already been given some good advice about writing more and when you write make sure that the information is relevant to others. Beginners have the tendency to write about their own experiences and that is fine if others can relate. Also, as a beginner, it is a good idea not to check your earnings as often. Produce good relevant articles consistently and your earnings should improve.
I am a prolific writer and have produced about 280 hubs in four months time and will get a payoff by the end of the month or sooner. I write about topics that I have knowledge of and that are of interest to others. The formula is working and I have discovered my topics of interest. You may have to explore different topics until you find your way.
Wow! 280 is a ton of hubs; great work! I let out a laugh when I read your comment "it is a good idea not to check your earnings as often". Wish I could do this! lol I check way too much!
I have had well over a 1,000 views and havent broke the dollar this last few days. Its what you write about because the week before that I had less views and made just under $10. Carefully pick a topic people will not only read but will feel the need to click through for more info, good luck.
I dont know how much it will take. But i am writting more for fun.
Thanks, for all the great advice... I can see that all you guys are pros at this, and i will try to get better and write hubs that are more relevant to everyone.. Thanks again everybody you guys helped a lot.
And duplicate content will not earn as much. I noticed that 2 of your hubs are identical with only different titles. AdSense will ignore the second one.
20,000 views equal $60.00? Now I see why they say you need to be relevant. That's a lot of views. And views from Hubpages itself won't count toward piliing up the do-ray-me. You need those ad clicks from outside. I keep reminding myself to write for people who would spend money on the affiliates or click on an ad. But I can't get away from writing for cheapskates, moochers, and others of my own ilk. Must change.
Hi, I am new to HubPages as well, it seems like an interesting place to be. I have already set up my Google Adsense and got my first 5 click in 2 day, how impressive is that, looking forward to making more Hubpages

Do you more experienced Hubbers believe writing about controversial topics like politics hurts or help your page traffic? For example, if you disagree with someone's political Hub, will you not visit their other Hubs?
