    Hello, Fellow Hubbers, Moderators and Administrators. My name is Erick Hernandez. I have a question. I made $0.10 as of this writing. How do I earn more money on the Ad Program? How do I get more clicks in the ad program?

      Write high quality articles that people are searching for smile Make sure your titles are search-friendly. Make sure your articles answer questions that people are asking. If you do this consistently, you will soon attract traffic.

      You don't need clicks on the ad program. You just need traffic.

      As the other Hubbers have indicated, it takes time for traffic to grow organically. You can help this along using social media, but this normally only helps when you concentrate on a specific niche.

      I note that you say in your profile that you enjoy playing Minecraft and World of Warcraft. Gaming can be a profitable niche. So, if you were to write an article on, 'How do you get to level X on Minecraft' may prove popular.

      Similarly, 'How to...' and lists, such as, '5 Signs that you are...' tend to be popular.

      Best of luck!

    I would focus on getting your pages accepted by the niche sites. That is where the traffic is, and traffic equals income.

    This page might help: … tellar-Hub

    A glance at your pages suggests a few problems:

    Photos are better full width
    Big blocks of text need breaking up
    Your titles are rather long
    Some pics are not properly credited and probably not legally used
    Too many youtube vids

    You only have 18 hubs. You need more than that to earn money. As you write new ones about things you are interested in , you'll learn which subjects do well. Then write more about that subject.

    Hi Ivan,

    I have heard a statement on TV and elsewhere. It goes "Wait for it". The only thing on media is you usually get the satisfaction two seconds later.

    Unfortunately, getting traffic is a very long process. You are new and will learn a little bit everyday. You have a few different interests in your portfolio, which one is generating the most views? Try more articles with different keywords for that subject. Also, an article will take three months or more to get popular on Google.     

    All the suggestions given here are good ones.

    Try using for help with Titles.

    I have been writing articles for several years and it is surprising how even a single sentence in an article can go through many changes during those years. My point is do not get discouraged. Figure out what is preferred in HubPages and present your writing accordingly.

    If you like problem solving, writing on the Internet is fun, but it is very slow going for earning money. That is my experience.

    You want to to earn? First and foremost, you must write articles that people are actively searching for in search engines. You could have the best writing in the world, but if no one reads your articles, then you will make nothing. Make sure to write high quality content; decent grammar, correct spelling & punctuation, and organized paragraphs. Although Google does not really check facts; try and ensure you have good substance. And of course; focus on using keywords that are relevant, but don't overuse them.

    A few views will not make much money. With every 1000 views (CPM), you'll (generally) make $2.00-$5.00 depending on how much advertisers are paying.

    I'll give you an example. If you make 5000 views a day with a CPM of $3.00; you'll make $15.00 a day which is $450.00 dollars a month on HP program & whatever you earn in Google adsense.

    But in order to do this; you'll probably need to have dozens of hubs or more. Views can vary dramatically, though. One hub might get 10 views a day where another could get 1000.

      I don't get 1,000 views a day. I usually get 10 a day, plus, it's impossible to get 1,000 views a day.

        Kain 360posted 5 years agoin reply to this

        It's definitely not impossible to get 1000 views daily. There have been (and there are) hubbers who get 1000s of views a day. I currently get a little over 1000 daily, but it's nothing compared to when I got 10,000 a day back at the last quarter of 2011 before I suffered major losses.

        It takes a lot of work, some luck, consistency, and intelligence to succeed on here, though. Know that you'll likely need dozens and likely over 100 hubs to get decent to high traffic. That's just the reality. However, it is possible for a hub to go semi-viral, but I would not count on that, as that is a best case scenario.

        No it isn't. That's an easy target. Write enough focused articles and you'll do it.

        Several of my articles only get 10 views a day.  Some get less.  However, right now I have one million three hundred and sixty five thousand views!  But this is after writing here for more than five years, doing lots of hard work, learning a lot and persevering even when times got tough.  It's not easy, but it can be done.  Don't worry about how many views you're getting right now.  Just keep building your portfolio and updating articles that don't do well.  I'd say the norm is between 50 and 100 hubs before you start earning...and then only if you create well written articles about topics people want to read about.

          I've been here 11 months, and recently joined the earnings program, like the ad program, after finding the W-9 tax form. I was afraid to do it beforehand because everybody told me that identity thieves could steal my information.

            This is the most secure and honest website you could ever hope to be a part of. They've been paying me on the 28th day of every month for years, like clockwork.

            Also, a thousand page views a day takes some work, but once you figure out what you're good at writing about, it isn't so hard to achieve.

    This thread could be helpful for a newbie like me. I do hubs here for web exposure, as plan to write a book later this year.

    I agree with you I am also uncomfortable putting my personal information online.

      not to be judgmental, but you have a hubberscore of 1. that's like bottom-of-the-foodchain low. how? i know that your articles are good, and that you don't write good english.

    Just repeat myself. You will never get traffic unless your pages are moved to a niche site. If you use the 'submit to a niche site' button, you will get some feedback, even if you fail.

      Where's the "Submit to a niche site button"?

        TIMETRAVELER2posted 5 years agoin reply to this

        At the top of each published hub that you have written.  You can submit one hub for consideration every 14 days, but new writers have all hubs evaluated after they write them, so wait until you get notices about your articles then make corrections prior to submitting.

          I have only had one article not accepted but received no notification from HP concerning its faults.

          I have only had one article not accepted but received no notification from HP concerning its faults. I reckon Ivan should pick his best article, spruce it up and submit at the first opportunity.

    It does take a lot of hard work.  I have been getting around 550-850 views daily now. This is from over 100 hubs for the past 4 years.   I am striving to make over 1000 views.  Some of my hubs get over 100 views daily and some get 7 views.  Since I have a number of Christmas hubs, I usually get 2000 or more views during that time.   Don't despair.  It is possible to get a great number of views and start earning money.  Just aim to write between 50-100 hubs that will interest other people.
