Tell me: various hubbers on HubPages are always checking their earnings, apparently, and asking...
for information about where and how to check their earnings. Isn't it true that we only get paid when we accrue the minimum total of $100 plus HP's commission? If this is so (and please correct me if I'm mistaken), aren't people just torturing themselves with the constant checking? (After all, as they say "A watched pot never boils").
It is true, you don't get paid until you reach the minimum threshold of $100.00 (after shares have been taken out but you will only ever see your earnings), and you have to wait until the following month to receive the previous months payment.
It seems confusing at first but if one month you make $99.00 and the next month you make $50.00, your total for the following month will be $149.00.
Are new Hubbers torturing themselves checking all the time? Yes and No. If they haven't written anything and are just expecting money, then yes but if they have written plenty of hubs and would like to see which hubs are preforming the best (what sells) then no.
I torture myself endlessly, but part of the reason is that I have been able to set and keep goals on HubPages like I have never been able to do before.
I do like to see what certain Hubs are paying per page view, what is crawling the search engines, and how my statistics are doing.
I believe in myself, my writing and my own ability to be a successful internet publisher, it is my family who need the proof.
When I get my first payout, it will be another goal reached. This has been done by very hard work, long hours and editing, editing, editing.

I think it would be great to make some kind of TOP 10 earners list on Hubpages. Make this list refresh once a day, and make an option "show in top" for each account. Also, make an option to show a nickname(not real profile name) or "anonymous".This step will be great(in my...

I have an idea for Hubpages to look into and implement if does not involve complications. More and more adsense publisher accounts are being disabled and top hubbers are being targetted. HP may come out of it unaffected if it considers to place its own publisher ID for 100% impressions for...

Hubbers need to know if their account is a full-value account worth the full 40% income value to HP. Or if their account is a referred account that is only worth the partial 30% value to HP. Knowing one's value to HP is an important factor in determining how much time, labor, and even money the...

Hi, everyone! I'm making $0.01 per day or even less on some days, and I have already been actively writing Hubs for about two months. I have 14 featured articles so far, I think that I'm doing all I can, or am I? Am I missing out on something? Or is this the normal learning curve and should I be...
