Over 400,000 views and still haven't earned a penny. WOO HOOO!
Tell you what - I will monetize them for you and we split the 15cents 50/50 - sound good?
Still in NY?
You've got to ask yourself, who is your audience? What are they there for?
Adsense can be used on ones own websites, and in other forums I see a lot of discussion with people asking why they don't earn much or why they don't see a lot of clicks.
I see it a lot with people who have online games sites. You know those flash games? Some of those flash games are a lot of fun. They're great time wasters. But who's using them?
Young people, who aren't particularly attracted to clicking on an ad. People playing them in the office during their lunch break (or in fact during work) who are there simply to blow off some steam and enjoy themselves, they're not going to be interested in clicking on ads either.
So that sort of site doesn't lend itself to being much of a revenue raiser.
Your hubs are about music. You rely heavily on video capsules. People are there to watch and listen. Their eyes aren't running over lines and lines of text with the chance that they'll see a contextual ad that makes them go 'hey, what's that?' something that's in relation to the topic and requires a person to click through to find out more. So they click.
I'd take what I've said here, and what Relache has said, and realise that expecting money from the type of hubs you specialise in, is fruitless.
That isn't to say you shouldn't make them. You have plenty of good reasons to make them, but making money from Adsense has to be removed from that list.
400,000 views and you haven't earned a thing? Dude, you definitely doing something wrong, have you entered your Adsense ID?
Hey DJ, the 400,000 views is great news. Congrats.
Are you not earning because you didn't start using adsense yet?.. Or are you joking because you don't think the earnings are coming fast enough;-) Many of us are in a similar boat. Good luck. The earnings will come.
You deff must not have adsense as that is impossible if you do !
Yeah DJ, I just checked one of your hubs and that might be the ticket- there were no google ads on that page.
Great! Jolly well done DJ.
And yahboo to google. Obviously DJ doesn't need or want your money.
He's probably locked and loaded
I'm guessing the idea is no Adsense = no ads = no $$ for Hubpages for your work, right? Thanks for contributing to the overhead here, DJ. Not.
I've had 84,000 page views and zero revenue. I assume this is pretty much the norm? I do have ads posted on most of my hubs, and I've got Kontera, too. So far, I haven't received a single check.
Aya, with Google it does seem that you should at least double-check to make sure you entered your ad sense code on HubPages "affiliate settings". Of course, if by "no revenue" you just mean you haven't built up enough to collect it yet - that's sounds like the norm. Based on my experience with Kontera, it has taken quite a while to build up little in Kontera. I don't think I'll be seeing any deposit for a long time, and I signed up last February. (Still, make sure your codes are entered.)
Entertainment is one of the worst topics to write about if trying to earn on the internet. It draws traffic, but not a lot of clicks, as the content tends to satisfy the visitor's wants just by looking at it.
And the clicks it draws are among the lowest paying.
...because most of your textual content is album track listings I don't think Adsense knows what ads to serve. I'm seeing "buy used camera gear", "Auto Insurance", "Health Insurance"...
Can you transcribe part of what you actually say and add it in a text capsule? That'll give the Google Adsense crawler something to feed on and the Adsense algorithm something to digest.
It will also give the Search Engines more to index.
Have you done your Google AdSense Pin Verification yet? That was the problem before, and I imagine it still is. Requesting a replacement pin is pretty easy, and I think you'd be making at least $25-30/month once complete. If you don't verify, Google will stop serving ads after a couple of months (as they did for you almost a year ago).
I requested a new pin and never received it. la-di-dah!
Okay, apparently they sent the last PIn but I had already left for NY. My old address in Florida was still in the system. Thanks
Do we all have to do this pin verification thing? I'm showing earnings, am I all set? I have been paid by G in the past. But hadn't used my account in a while.
If you've been paid, either your account is very old or you've probably already done the verification. For most markets they send you a pin number in the mail at your registered address, but I think they also use a text message based cellphone verification process sometimes.
I always assumed the DJ wasn't in it for the money. Only groupies that come along with being YouTube's favorite DJ.
Thanks Paul, I've been with adsense since 2003, so I've probably done everything. Just haven't used adsense in a few years.
Wow, that's a lot of clicks! Be happy and figure out what you are doing wrong, you should have made some money by now

I got a click today! Between using HPads and the changes made to adsense I seldom get any clicks. It's been two weeks since the last one (about 10,000 views), but I got one today! I'm so excited!It was for a penny.

I can't believe it. Since I have started earning, I have never had a day when I made nothing. Maybe tonight things will pick up. HubPages, please check to make sure you didn't disable all my ads!

I used to use the revenue to pay bills, but am now living back at home with my parents so my bills are much smaller. I plan on using my revenue to move to California where I can get a higher paying job and hopefully have more time to produce more hubs. It'll take a bit of money to do that so I've...

I just wanted to come here and give a little encouragement to those, like myself, who are new to Hubpages.I have been here a little over three weeks now and published 14 Hubs. I don't want to jinx myself, but for the past week I have been seeing consistent Adsense revenue, and according to Google...

I'm trying to figure out how to write ads for adsense revenue. How do I entice them to click on the ads? Are there any tutrials or ebooks on the subject?
