    lol The title sounds demanding. I'm pretty much joking...sort of.

    I know it's dumb, but after publishing my 100th hub five minutes ago, I was very much looking forward to a medal appearing on the screen. sad

    Does it take a while to update?

    Note to self: You are crazy for caring about a virtual medal!!!! ahaha

      It took the Hubpage Gods several days to put out my virtual medal after I reached the 10,000 viewing.  Guess it is a lot to keep up with.. Maybe you won't see anything until after the holiday weekend.. sad

    LOL The latest record is dated 18 minutes back, give it some time. smile

    Congrats btw, you are doing great! In fact I would argue that you might be the most profitable hubber on the record smile

      That would be very cool. big_smile I wish there was a way to know!

      My stats as of right now are:

      Adsense - $194.55 - total, to date.
      Amazon - $44.69
      Referrals to other sites - $60ish

      This is since April 25th, I think? I only earned $1 in April from anything. $70ish in May. And $109 last month from Adsense. The last few days, if I can count on their projections (probably not) will earn me about $150 this month.

      I hope this gives some others encouragement! Remember, you need to do LOTS of research and learn about keyword selection and seo in order to earn any money. Also, I had to write 100 hubs to earn this lol. I know you could do it with less, but you'd have to write about REALLY boring topics and I like to write about fairly interesting things. wink

        MY..My! What an achievement! 100 hubs in 2 months. Seems that you've been doing this full time. smile Also, I didn't hear anyone making that kind of money in first two months on HP. Hats off! How about sharing some tips?

          My only tips would be to do lots of keyword research and SEO. I haven't started building many backlinks yet, but that'd be helpful to. My advice would be to stop writing and basically do as much research as you can for a week or so. Once you 'think you've got it', write a few hubs using your researched methods. If it works, great. If not, back to the drawing board. Everyone has a different process so I find that people can do the best if they pull info from a bunch of different sources, rather than just one.

          I also had to write 100 articles, so quantity definitely helps, but is not everything. Content is important, too. big_smile

          As for Amazon, that is almost pure luck. I am actually not earning much from my hubs written around products, but rather products related to my content. I take the time to handpick products that people visiting my hub might be interested in. For example, I just wrote a hub on my favorite grapefruit recipe this evening. I featured some fruit cookbooks and will probably make a few sales eventually on those.

            LOL - somehow I'm still hungry and the beer buzz hasn't quite kicked in yet. Virtual food really isn't what it used to me. wink

            Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, pizza and beer... smile

            Seriously, congrats on 100 but be careful about posting Google AdSense earnings, Google is very picky about that.

    Way to go girly.  You'll probably have a hundred more before I even make it to my first hundred.  I'm sure you can do it.

      Thanks! Now that I've finally started to figure out keywords and all that stuff, I hope to spend more time writing new hubs than reading 'how-to's and all sorts of random tidbits here and there across the web! big_smile I think my head is still spinning.
