I don't understand why I'm not earning ad revenue when I've had hundreds of people view my blogs
Can someone please help me? I'm a new author as I signed up one week ago. My author score is 85 and I've had hundreds of people view my stories. My affiliate codes are set/active. All except for ebay which won't let you earn ad revenue unless you can prove that you are personally hosting your own site, which I'm not, as HubPages is. It doesn't make sense why I'm not earning revenue and I've read multiple pages in search of answers, as well as emailed HubPages (no response from them) to no avail. Thanks for your help!
You only have 5 hubs so far, which is generally not enough to earn hardly anything at all. Keep going, after 20 or so hubs you'll begin to see ad revenue.
I'll chime in here as a fellow newbie. Alexd181's answer seems to be the norm. I, too, am not generating any revenue even though I've had nearly 65 hits on my one and only hub so far (I;ve got 2 more inproduction and a few ideas for yet more). I honestly did not expect to start making money at this point, and that's not the main reason I'm here, either.
However, that being said, can anyone say why we need so many hubs with so many hits before we start seeing income? The help pages say that HubPages takes 4 of every 10 impressions, leaving the author with the other 6. By that count, out of the 65 hit's my hub has gotten, around 40 of them should be contributing to my adsense account. Is it just that each impression is only worth .01 cents or something, or is it that visitors have to do something more than just visit the page to generate a payable impression?
What exactly constitutes an impression, and what's the difference between AdSense Unit Impressions and AdSense Page Impressions (in Google Analytics)?
Perhaps the first thing to do is to consider your readers. You know ,if we want to caught the attention of the readers we need to know first their interest. If we are talking about history the first thing we should consider how many of the youth today are interested about history? And what is the approach to be used in order to encourage them reading my topics for them to post comments? Deo Durante
Just having people view your Hubs doesn't earn you money. Impression earnings (where an ad earns just by being shown) is terribly low. Clicks (when someone actually clicks through an ad and goes to another page) is what tends to generate revenue.
And if you aren't writing Hubs that are well-geared to sell, you tend not to earn very much. (your hubs tell stories. there's no reason to go shopping if you're just listening to a story) Take all that, and multiply it by your number of Hubs. Few = not many opportunities. Lots = Many chances to earn.
Some readers are just looking for diversion. No clicks.
Some readers are looking to information or products they actually might be willing to pay for. Clicks.
To which group do your pages cater?
You need to have targeted traffic in order to make money off adsense and affiliate links, its proven that social traffic people rarely click.
i am very honoured to answer this question, i hope i give you the right answer that you seek.
you might want to check if you are bridging the agreement you have with hubpages or your affiliate associates, you might be ingnoring something and probably the visitors to your site have not clicked on adds in your sites.
another thing, i hope you are not clicking on adds on your hubpages yourself? because they can track if you click.
i would like you to settle down go through the agreement and check if you violating any law.
With the Hubs, and websites as well, there is usually a watershed amount of traffic that is required before you begin seeing substantial revenue. And as well, social networking traffic isn't as likely to convert. You will do better getting your traffic from link exchanges, and other forms of traffic generating techniques..
Hang in there and try to create more Hubs. I'm almost at 200. It takes that many to earn Adsense income or sell Amazon products, plus the Hubs need to be targeted toward subjects that sell products or have high value clicks.
Strive for organic search traffic from search engines because they are likely to result in more clicks...why? because people coming from search engines are actively looking for information on the keywords they typed on search engines.
They click on ads to get more info. Use Adwords to research high traffic keywords and also what keywords are high traffic and at the same time high average cost per click.
Backlinks and readers from hubpages and social networks are less likely to click ads.
Remember: Do not click on the ads on your own hubs, you would get banned if you do.

How long did it take before you started earning $50 to $100 a month on Hubpages?I try not to think all too much about the earning part on Hubpages since I'm still new here (4 months), but when you're earning literally NO money at all... It's still a bit discouraging.

As someone who doesnt mind getting a taste of ad revenue one day -whats up with the huge right column of unused ad space that would give returns on impressions!In truth, readers are already trained not to pay attention to such a space, so it wont take away from people reading my work - but the ads...
