so i started on hubpages like 4 days ago, which i know is really recent, but i have joined amazon and google affiliate programs and aren't making any money. I have had 49 impressions today and no clicks. I have 10 hubs and all of them have amazon adds, i get about 100 views a day, which i figure is very solid for 4 days. Anyway, any idea why I'm not seeing anything from google? I can understand that amazon isn't gonna be nearly as profitable as google, but why isn't google doing anything, i havent made a cent in google, im ranting
Way Way Way too soon to get worried about it, it can take months before you see a cent, but if you're patient and keep working at it you can make a few bucks here and there (and some people make a lot more), but it ain't no get rich quick scheme.
Well, I make more money with Amazon that I do with google. But - not after 4 days. If you are expecting to make money that fast - you are sure to be disappointed.
My advice would be to develop a realistic attitude towards web writing and how long it takes to make it a profitable venture.
Google barely knows you exist, if at all. Don't take it personally.
I'd also like to offer up two pieces of genuinely-sincere advice:
1) entertainment topics are some of the lowest paying on the internet even though they attract a crapload of traffic.
2) Run spell check and read back what you wrote more than once before you publish it. Having spelling errors, correctly-spelled-but-otherwise-completely-wrong words or bad grammar doesn't help build a readership.
You need to give up. Throw in the towel.
But seriously, if you want instant money fast you're better off getting a real job.
Publishing online is a long term proposition. Not sure what you've read so far, but it requires a lot of hard work, knowing all the ins and outs, and creative talent.
okay, thanks, also, how do i improve the amount of views from google i get?
I'm still pretty new here myself, but it's mainly a mix of writing original content based around a specific keyword or niche, maybe getting a few links to it from other sites, and other various methods unique to each individual hubber, there are loads of great hubs around on Hubpages that can guide you in this kind of thing. Have a look about, or hopefully some other hubbers will pop by your thread shortly to point you in the right direction.
100 views is cool, but are they from within hubpages or search engine traffic? You want SE traffic to make money and it takes time for articles to be found in the search engines. Especially in the beginning while they are still being indexed.
Best advice.. Start here. Do some research on how others make money here.

Um, some people can take a year or more to get a payout from Google. Basically the more hubs you do the better your luck is.
Also, do a search on here for Google Adsense, you should be able to find find hubs and forum threads with advice...
Definitely too soon...plus while 10 hubs is great for four days...it isn't very many in the long scheme of things. You need to give your hubs time to get indexed with the search engines and such as well...give it time and work on more hubs and you will see the money come. However, it won't be a ton of money and it won't come easy.
Don't worry it will come, one word of advice do not be tempted to get others to click on your ads believe me it is not worth loseing your adsence account over time. be sure you read and under stand all of the tos from google or any site
It takes time to make money, and even more time to enough to brag about. Patience is the key.
You need to have hundreds of articles published if you want to make a living of it. It's way to early to worry about your income just yet..
Start promoting your hubs (optimize them for the search engines and you'll soon see more traffic and your earnings increasing steadily.
i have read all the replies,thanks for all the help, today i made a penny, so i guess that's a start, haha
just continue writing hubs with quality content and make sure that your readers would keep coming back to read your latest hubs
The wheels of the great god Google grind slow but exceeding fine.
make it 13 cents! i understand its not going to be a quick paying thing, i was mainly wondering why out of like 50 impressions, i had no clicks, i thought maybe id done something wrong, but i think i see now that its about getting traffic so that iget more impressions and itll slowly build, thtanks everybody
I joined on April 22nd-ish and it took me 8 days to earn my first .13 cents.
Now, I've almost reached payout, so it can be done. I have spent a LOT of time on here, however. If you spend an hour or two a day, it will take you longer to reach payout. I'm in between jobs right now. I don't even want to say how much time I spend writing and researching on here.
You just have to write lots of quality hubs that bring in targeted traffic. Make sure your hubs have ads that correspond closely to the topic before you spend time writing. Think of a topic you want to write on and google it. Are there tons of targeted ads for it in the right hand column of the search results? Chances are, those same, targeted ads will be in your hub, too.
I just wrote a hub on safe, electronic candles. I knew it'd have plenty of relevant ads because of all the research I did prior to writing. Now, when visitors arrive at my hub, they have around 20 ad links to potentially click that all closely relate to my targeted topic of candle safety. The ads will provide them with additional information that they are seeking out.
You're going to have to write a TON of entertainment hubs to get traffic that equals clicks. You may also want consider writing on other topics, that pay more and get more clicks.
This is good advice if i must say so. I have to research my topics before writing. Hmmm i never thought of that, though i read it somewhere during my 'researching-the-IM-world'
Im having a few difficulties with a couple of my hubs. but i think i know how to approach my topic plans now.
Thanks for the tips.
I think that, you must always remember, that you will not make money immediately.
To all those, whom wait good things will come.
Good Luck. You are amongst friends.

I have just started, so I dont expect it in the near future, but how many hubs, or how many months before you start making money? How much traffic is considered to be good traffic? Right now I am getting about an average of 75 hits per day on 4 hubs. Is that good? What...

So other than the fact that Google has apparently decided I am a crappy writer and my traffic is down from 17k a day to maybe 1600... with a similar decline in income... Do we yet know why this happened? Feeling a little bitter. Have had to take on enough clients that I rarely have time to...

I was wondering if anyone is making any significant money from their pages. Or are people just doing this for having fun.
by weholdthesetruths 11 years ago
I have noticed a great deal of effort put into finding the specific keywords to write hubs about, and pushing them into Google, among other places, to drive traffic to your hubs, and thence get ad views and clicks, etc. Do any of you who read this forum write for the sheer love of writing,...

Hey Guys and Gals, Man, I have just about had it with the traffic issues here at the Hubpages. I have published over 100 hubs here in two years. I have won several awards, I have had over 10, 000 views, and I have a following of over 200 people. When this whole traffic loss debacle first occurred,...
