Having only joining this two days ago, all I can say is ... it works.
I'm too tired to work out the whys etc, I just know that it does. My traffic has already doubled (more than) and that is, I presume, the point.
I never was a hubber that had a thousand views per day but perhaps that's achievable now. Hopefully, a year or two down the line, between writing here, and elsewhere to strengthen the authority of what I write, I can finally have a home again.
My impetus for doing this. Not that I'm assuming I'll gain enough to buy a mansion. But something to put towards renting a (very) small apartment and start again would be very nice
So - although this may be a pain in the arse for many, due to the increased hub output, I'm sure that many of us have very valid reasons for typing 'til our eyes bleed/blur/go blind.
And if you're simply doing this because you want to - I still take my hat off to you. It's an awful lot of graft.
Still - as I said at the beginning of my whitterings, the purpose for the 30 day doodah works. I'm more than pleasantly surprised
You bet it works. Writing one hub a day, more than that if you can, really does bring in the money. Yesterday I had orders for 18 items on Amazon. And that's not my biggest day. And all the little days are starting to add up too.
but, you have really good sellable info.
ebay and amazon dont want me. I just complain.
The limited affiliate options is one of the real weak spots of Hubpages. Have to admit that I'm working on other non-hubs projects everyday, because of that.
you got money from 30 hubs?
GOOD FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You seem to do very well on Amazon Nelle - Congrats! I think you are the exception rather than the rule.
Nelle - one thing I've never done is the Amazon stuff. I must look into that. And the hows and whys of it.
Good to know that you've got it pegged though!
Frogdropping, good luck on your new apartment. My hubs earnings are going towards a new car. (New car for me is about 50,000 miles and several years old.)
You 2 girls have inspired me again because my earnings have just nosedived despite my keyword research and picking medical hubs, in the last week I have made only about 3 dollars.
Now I know a lot of the older hubbers as in here over 2 years are doing well but hubbers like you 2 ladies joined about the same time as me so if I am not being rude is anyone around the 4-6 month mark as a member earning enough to cash out each month, thanks !
Yes I've gotten a Google payout monthly from hubs since my second month. Amazon has been totally amazing!!!!! The medical category is really competitive - especially cancer. I just pick out high volume words and products. I target products not adsense.
BC - I didn't earn a bean April/May. Then June came round and I made some.
July I made the same. Then I hit the amount I'd made in the whole of July yesterday, ten days still left in the month, plus factor in that for 10 days of August it was a big fat zero.
However, I saw others having the same problem and realised that holiday season had kicked in. So this month has only been across 9 days.
Anyway, I reckoned maybe October or so for me. Then I discovered that what I'd earned in June has gone. I don't know where, just that it's vanished. Just my luck
And so, the short version of my waffling is: writing hubs pays if you do the typing bit
I think June spoiled me as I made just over 90 dollars in that one month but all from one hub and then it just nosedived. I gotta admit i have been lazy and I think starting from tomorrow I need to start writing again. Am glad you are doing well, you deff put the work in !
That's a shame BC, about 'since June'. No idea why but I guess it happens. And I do have a very big motivator ... not having a place to call home helps
I may not have a home myself moi friend shortly, I am as you know well into a seperation so moi house could have a " For Sale " sign banged up anytime !
My husband kept all. It was a lot of 'all' too. I simply walked away. It was the safest thing to do.
Though my solitor went bald/grey/nuclear. But he wasn't having to run away
I don't really care though as there is good equity on the house but hey she actually decided to break up 4 months after I had the heart attack, nice timing doncha think. See thats the thing about a website, people see the guy who acts the fool, they dont see the fool behind the mask but hey we all have our problems and mine are nothing compared to others. And that I promise you is the last time I put my private life on the site
OMG I'm sorry you are going through that. So that is where you get your big heart. Broken ones are always bigger.
Its the just waiting that is the worst, every month I wait for that solicitors letter but I think because of the recession and fall of house prices in the UK she is waiting until the house prices rise again. Meanwhile i live in a home were I cant do improvements or anything because I may not be in it in 3 years from now. But I will never lose my sense of humor ever !
I am tearing up for the two of you.
But frogdropping, I get you. Safety before all else.
Nelle - thankyou but I'm fine and well. Honest, no regrets, I'm happy, I'm getting 'there'
Thankyou - I am and I will. I'll possibly just carry on regardless. Perhaps I can shift the backlog I've got anyway, plus a few extra I've been writing since Wednesday, will add up to ... a lot.
@BC - hey no one's a fool. I think you're quite the character and far from being a fool. Just an irish laddie that gets in his cup then shares his cup with ... us. You're doing fine. And I won't tell ye mammie
My partner Bill and I went through similar horrendous divorces--me at 48 and him at 53. We both lost everything, and not just that, we got stuck with HORRENDOUS debt run up by abusive spouses. We're going into six years together now and we haven't got a pot to piss in but we are so happy. Honestly, it will get better for you. Something better will come in its place. I've seen it happen too many times to doubt it.
Me and my wife started with nothing.
And we're still got most of it left.
Ah, that's good to hear darkside. I have a whole lot of nothing.
How blessed am I
Money is nothing without someone to share it, you have deff made me feel a lot better tonight and I have been thinking of getting out and hopefully meeting someone that will care and just be happy. I am happy things turned out good for you and if I was happy with someone the house could be hers. See I told you that yer pic made yer readers relate to you didnt I, and I thank you for your kind words, they are appreciated and they helped. I think tomorrow I am going to put my real pic up and be myself. Life deff is strange, the Moody Blues sure had that worked out
(The recent one your daughter took?) And I think that will be a great beginning to a new life and new success. Wishing you well.
You should! Johnny Depp's got nothing on you.
Have a good one BC And thanks guys. I feel fine. I have ... lots of nada
Well, I came hear to learn about making money, and instead got a lot of hearts and flowers! ...and it did my heart good, I must say. Right now I am trying to sort out my new life, and the boxes of stuff I brought from the old one - left the house too, LOL. Grand to know that others have made it through - doesn't feel probable some days!
Hey Red Elf
You another that fell foul of love and life? If so - me too. Though I'm not through it. I'm still paddling
I have only been doing this for six days, and I can see how it could add up, as my posts are increasing daily in readers. What I am confused about, is when do you start seeing at least a little bit, like cents even, of money. My earnings continue to show 0, and while it may take a while, I want to make sure I have done everything right to get paid. The affiliate thing says my googlesense is active, but not even one cent is showing for earnings. Do earnings not show at all until you reach $10 or what. I wouldn't expect to have made much with only six hubs and six days doing this, but a few cents would at least allow me to feel secure that I have done everything right and that it is just a matter of time. Any assistence with info would be greatly appreciated, as I don't want to waste time not earning anything because of some computer thing I was supposed to do and didn't know to do. Help! Please. Valerie
Valerie - the adsense stuff differs. Some appear to be here a week or so and start seeing a little money, others months.
It's part luck, part hard work and a whole bunch of other stuff. Unique and/or original content. Finding a good topic to write about. Presenting your articles in a reader friendly and attractive layout.
Mostly, you just need to write and be patient. It will come, sooner or later - in the meantime - write. And there's lots of info kicking around the site. Many hubbers have written articles about how to write hubs and how it works and why.
Go read some of the top hubbers stuff, look at how they present their hubs and so on. It's a learning process and it gets easier as you go along
and welcome to hubpages by the way

So, I made the silly mistake of checking my Adsense account today, and, not surprisingly, very little has changed since I last checked it two weeks ago.With 37 Hubs after almost two full months, I have made $3.00. Is...
