First payout a month ago - second payout this month

    It really does take off. I got my first adsense payout at the end of June, and I've just hit the £60 mark for July, so another payout this month.

    That's not all hubs, because I set up my own blog a month ago, but hubs is most of it.

      Hi London Girl, I'm brand new to hubbing.  I just joined a few days ago.  I was wondering how the payout thing worked?  I stumbled upon Hub Pages and just started writing because I like to write, then I found out people get paid.  I thought, COOL!  I'll have to check out some of your hubs.

      Take care.

    That's excellent. It's good to hear that your blog is doing well too.

    Nice!  Yes, it's absolutely true that once the earnings start coming in, they rapidly snowball!

    A big congrats to you.  I remember waiting and waiting for my first payout with Adsense.  I would check every 15 minutes when I was getting close.

    It's a special feeling to be able to say you earned real, legit cash online.

    I hope it continues to grow for you

    That's great.

    If I don't count earnings from my sites, I will reach the payout till 1030.

      Actually Ultimate, that's not true.  Let me guess - you've earned $1 so far?  That's about what I'd earned by the end of 3 weeks.

      My earnings from HubPages alone is now nearly $800.  Not bad for only 75 Hubs!

        Yea something like $1. In fact less than that. Ok, I got your point, your comment proved to be quite encouraging.

    Congratulations LondonGirl. I think the main qualities needed to make money hubbing (after writing talent) are patience and the willingness to stick at it. It can seem like it's taking forever to get that first payout and it's easy to get sidetracked by other things. But like everything else online, once you start to get results it becomes easier to persevere.

    Well done, and very well deserved. Your research (thinking about some of your London hubs) is of the highest quality.

    Nice for you.  Congratulations.   You seem to be yet another one who took in the area of eight/nine months to start seeing some "real results".  Some people have different results because they approach things differently (more zealously when it comes to thinking about promoting/marketing), but that eight-/nine-month thing does to be kind of it for a lot of people.

    Congrats, London Girl!  I hit the first $100 about a week ago, so I hope to see my first payout the end of August.  We'll see how long it takes to get the second one.

    Congratulations LG. I've still not reached the 1st payout stage. smile

    wow payouts
    cant be bad

    would not mind a bit of that - but you all have so many hubs running. I need to crack on

      A great way to boost your earnings is to join the HubChallenge. We've just started one, even though it will be ongoing, it's a great time to get motivated to write 30 hubs in 30 days.

    Congrats, Londongirl! It really is surprising how much faster the next payout rolls around once the ball starts rolling.

  15. LondonGirl profile image86
    LondonGirlposted 8 years ago

    Thanks all! It's rather nice (-:

    IN response to Lisa, I joined hubpages a while ago, and wrote one hub, then didn't start writing or participating, really, until just before Christmas. So it was 6 months to my first payout, 7 to my second, really.

    Congratulations - from one UK hubber to another. A question for you. Do you bother much with keyword research or just write quality hubs from the heart about subjects you know? And let the revenue take care of itself.

      Ambitionposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      No need to bother for keywords. a quality article already has required keywords but you need to choose the right topic so that you get high $ per 1 click.

    Congratulations London Girl.  You are another example of patience and persistence.  I wish you many more pay-outs in the future.

    Wow this is great news, gud to know the progress. Cheers for many more in lesser time. This sharing of news gives inspiration and to hang in there till we get our first cheque. Thanx for sharing so where is the party?

  20. LondonGirl profile image86
    LondonGirlposted 8 years ago

    A bit of both, really.

    I don't choose topics on the basis of keywords, etc. I write about things I find interesting, that I want to write about.

    Once I've written a hub, though, I do check keywords around my subject, and if there is a phrase with a high value that is relevant to my hub and won't be clunky, then I stick that in.

    1. bigmikeh profile image79
      bigmikehposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Sounds good to me. Write from the heart and optimise it afterwards.

    This is really interesting LG.  My second payment came after 5 months and my 3rd, 3 months but I'm now looking at my 4th payment either in 2 months or possibly one month.

    My earnings are increasing very rapidly at present but most of my earnings come from referral hubs (via my tracker) so it is difficult to analyse where the money is coming from.

    The obvious reason for your success is simply quality.  You honestly write about what interests you and SEO, keywords etc. are obviously of secondary importance.  This just reinforces the corny old cliche that 'content is king'!  Well done LG - I shall learn from your success!

    PS: All this reinforces the fact that HubPages is a great writing and earnings platform (but not a get rich quick scheme for people who can't write!)

    1. LondonGirl profile image86
      LondonGirlposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That's very kind of you, thanks. I do pay a bit of attention to keywords, after I've finished writing, but not in picking my subjects or writing the hubs.

      Well done on your payouts, too!

    Thanks Pam! Of course, Sod's Law has come into play, and the last couple of days have been 50p or less a day, but hey! my 2nd payout's still on its way (-:

  24. LondonGirl profile image86
    LondonGirlposted 8 years ago

    Hi - by payout, I mean from google adsense. It has a threshold - you only get paid if and when your total earnings reach a certain level. For me, in the UK, the level is £60. In the USA, it's $100.

    Congrats LG! I am thinking to be active again. I envy all of you who are receiving payouts regularly, as monthly? I am hoping I could make it one day when I became active again.
