Have been looking at my adsense stats, and I have hubs that haven't made a single cent, while others chug along nicely.
At present, 52% of my hubs have made me nothing. I was just curious if this was normal. Are others experiencing the same thing?
Four of my hubs have earned me nothing so far, but 3 of them have been published in the last couple of weeks and two since Friday.
Congratulations, that's really great.....
Not even a single one of them has earned me a dime yet.
80 per cent of my hubs make nothing, makes you wonder doesn't it !
Badcompany - you had an experiment to see if changing things on your hubs made a difference (I read your 100 hubscore hub about it!). What was the result? Did you increase the amount earned, did some hubs become profitable?
I'm torn between simply shrugging about my non-performing hubs and concentrating on those that do deliver, and looking to tweak and improve the non-performers so they come good.
That one hub actually made me more money in 2 weeks than the others did in 3 months. I now only write about products that are popular on Amazon hence my Amazon ads or a good Health topic like losing weight or Calories. Most hubs written are just not going to make money. My last 4 or 5 all make money, my first 30 made damn all until I worked it out !
Like Badco, so far only 20% of them are making me any money. Strangely, I've been surprised by which ones have. I sold 7 Amazon items in one day from one hub. Definitely, did NOT expect that. A couple I've written for fun have also gotten clicks. So, as much as I try to apply some science to it all, it can keep you on your toes. I focus on writing about what I like with some keyword research to maximize profits.
You don't need that money anyway Johnny!
As for me:
20 of my 24 Hubs has earned me money... 2 of them don't have any adsense adds in them so it's 90%. Pretty good I guess. Also don't forget your "extra hub" - my profile page has also gave me some pocket change
I forgot about that. I seem to get a surprisingly large amount of traffic to my profile page, even direct from search engines.
Johnny always needs money and am always working on new ways. Ya know me, a pirate to the end
None, I make a lil money on all of them for the most part. And if not, its still worth keeping.
You just joined Hub Pages 4 days ago. How can all your hubs already make money?
If you do the correct keyword research, it is very possible to start earning money within the first day of publishing. As long as your hub gets indexed fast with google (a typical occurence) and your keywords don't have tons of competition but are searched for a lot on a daily basis, you will start earning right off the bat. It's not rare for some hubs so start earning $5 dollars in their first day.
Only one of mine has earned me any thing and that was from amazon I do not have an adsence acct. I got kick form adsence still am not sure what I did.
About 50% of my hubs have made something. That being said, the earnings are completely inconsistent. I never know where my next clicks will come from.
Also, there seems to be no correlation between the amount of traffic a hub receives and the amount made on it.
30 out of 34 hubs have made something on Adsense, about half have made 20 cents or more and the rest a penny maybe more. I'm very pleased with my results.
Gosh, that is good, I make very little $$$, however, I did the recommended changes to all my hubs and it bumped my views up immediately! Thanks to all that helped me!
Just go for the right topics now my friend and the $$$ will slowly trickle in and note the word trickle but it will increase with time, good luck !
Have only made a few pence thus far, so am not giving up the day job yet. So far have only written for interest, but might give writing a Hub purely for profit a go. As I'm totally lost about keywords etc, my extreme ineptitude as I try to put one together will probably be worth a hub in its own right! lol
I haven't figured out how to separate each hub to see how they are producing - but even though I get a large amount of views, the click through rate is small.
I have about 20 that get no views, hence no earnings a day. I wish I hadn't spent so much time writing them, but it was before I started doing research about keywords and SEO! Luckily, my other hubs help carry the weight of these non-earners.
Right now I've got 135 Hubs published. Since the start of 2009, only seven of those have not earned anything. That's about 5% of my Hubs that don't earn, which seems pretty reasonable. If I go back and include 2008, only four Hubs have not earned anything over all that time, again not too bad an amount of underperforming Hubs. All four are less than six months old.
Was just writing to write, lol. Earning some money is good too, though, Have just started using keyword search tool and that has made a big difference in hub score, but where do I get info about how to tell which hub makes more? I check AdSense, but it doesn't say which hubs the clicks are form...or does it? Any help appreciated.
Log into your Adsense account, and then click on the tab labelled "Adsense setup" and then on the sub-tab labelled "channels".
Then click on "URL channels" and then "add new URL channels".
Add the URLs for your hubs one by one. Adsense will then report on each channel, so you can tell which hub the clicks came from, from the date you have set the channels up.
I am lazy
On a second thought I may give a slightly different answer - I don't feel like that. If I feel like writing a hub, it does not take long, otherwise I just don't do it
100% of my hubs make no money at all. I think I hold the record for lowest earnings ever over 3 years.
I have never made a nickel on all of my hubs. If it happens it doesn't happen in a hurry unless you are a really clever product placement writer.
I checked my adsense channels. Of all my hubs, 2 have not made a penny. Several of the rest have only made a few pennies, but at least something!
Actually none of my hubs have made a penny! I've been trying to ask hubpages about this since it seems strange to me that in the past week I've had about 100 page views and in the past 2 weeks I've had about 200. Sure, that isn't a ton of traffic, but it seems off that no one has ever clicked on any of the ads on my hubs EVER! Any help/thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated as whoever is supposed to respond to help emails by concerned yet dedicated hubbers is failing to do so.
I just took a look at a hub of yours about adsense. It is long enough and has good info.
I would suggest two things.
1. Have a trustwothy looking avatar, no avatar= no point of trust.
2. Break your text up in to more text capsules.
I can't see much wrong otherwise, and your writing is fine....
100% of my hubs don't make any money.
Lucky I don't need any.
How do you even tell which ones make money? I can see which ones get viewed, but I don't know how to tell which ones make money.
In adsense, I have each of my hubs as a channel. So when I click on, say, "this month, channel and day" it shows how many page impressions and clicks each hub has.
Well, some of mine make money; some don't. What do you expect with a lot of poetry gunk?
I've been trying to package those a little differently however...And just write more prose-oriented hubs.

Well, it seems to me that my traffic is never going to increase.I am lucky to get one hit a week now, and the only traffic I am getting is from google.I know that being away for a while doesn't help much, but none of my other sites are doing any better. With all the stuff that is going on with my...

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

Just gaging anyone else's earnings here. I just checked google adsense and I have earned 64 dollars in 18 months. I've only written 19 Hubs and most of them don't get any traffic. Any thoughts?

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my sources is: http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubbers-Reveal- … s-EarningsDoes this...

Ok this is not for promotional, only as an example of a recently published hub.http://hubpages.com/hub/Is-Space-Travel-Worth-The-CostThat or feel free to visit my hubs pick a random one..Although a few I understand why they are not earning anything but ones like this above (Only as an example) or...

I am talking about best and worst scenarios. I have been through many posts on the forum and other places. From what I understand, you can hope to make (in the best case) about $1 per month per hub. So is that true for many of you? For instance, if I go berserk and post 1000 hubs (don't even ask me...
