    How can I cure my impatience?

    Ive been diligently producing hunbs for six weeks but have only had two measily adsense clicks after 1200 views. I know over half of these are hubview but its still disapointing! I need a cure to this ridiculous impatience...!!!

    I can understand...Oh dear...I suppose that you can increase traffic by following the suggestions of billyaustindillon, katiem2 and other great hubbers...

    Your hubs look pretty good to me.
    Where is your traffic coming from? I find internal traffic from hub readers doesn't seem to convert at all so if all your traffic is intenal clicks are likely to be rare.
    You don't seem to have many if any backlinks. Backlinking might help you get more search engine traffic. I did a hub about backlinking here..
    It may give you some tips.

    since impatience is not a disease nor a sickness, one cannot cure it,      BUT!  whatever problem or situation or difficulty even impatience, offer it up to God asking Him to handle it and then forget it. When it is God's will, he will handle it, His way.

    Take a deep breath, I'm right there with you.  I'm told that it takes six months for hubs to "mature."  I'll check you out, and see if I could possibly help.

    Adsense is a numbers game.  Less than 1 person in a hundred will click on an ad.

    And the average can be much lower.  1 click per thousand views is quite normal.  That's why on sites like YouTube the successful people have 100,000 views per week or more and often more than a million subscribers.

    Do you ever click on ads?  Think about it.  Most rarely do and only if it catches their eye and is something that seems interesting.  I found HubPages on a Facebook ad.  But I think I click on only about one ad per month and I'm a heavy internet user.  It has to be something that intrigues me.

    Making money from Adsense and other affiliate programs is a long term project requiring work.  More pages... lots of them.  In the case of Hubs, then you need several hundred interesting hubs and they will start to pay off in about 2-3 years.  So be patient and keep writing good content.  Content is what it is all about.  And use other affiliates such as Amazon.

    Personally, I've found gardening is the perfect way yo teach yourself how to be patient.

    Still it's no good being patient if you've planted your seed in the wrong soil. To get clicks you need traffic - have you chosen your hubs to target converting keywords that get traffic nad have reasonable competition?

    Forget being patient and work hard consistabtly to get traffic....
