      Same to me also. You need to keep posting quality contents. Commercial contents usually gets more clicks than informative.

      Hope this helps you.

      If it makes you feel any better, it took me three months to earn my first $10.  Now I'm about to break the $2,000 mark.  Patience!

      Remember, HP traffic means nothing really ! Organic traffic is what counts. Here is some things you can try: ping your url's, backlink on high PR sites with relevant content, forum posting, free press releases and article submission. Also use social media.

    My question is what would you consider a lot of traffic and where is the traffic coming from.

      over 5,000 hits so far, is that good? Or bad?

        Its ok but not huge. I would say the best way to make more money from adsense per hubview is to look at the keywords you are using, research them on googles keywords suggestion tool (turn on cpc in the dropdown menu for how much ads pay for that keyword), and make sure you are targeting keywords that pay well.

        Well to be honest my partner and I get just under 5000 hits a day to our websites.  I wont tell you what our adsense is from those hits but I will tell you that it isnt even close to being our highest stream of income.

        But yes SEO and keywords and continous traffic is the key

        Steady traffic to sites with quality content and content that people want will equal nice adsense checks

        5,000 hits with 46 hubs in 4 months is not that much.

        I can't say whether it's good or bad (that's for you to decide), but I do know that 5,000 hits over 46 hubs over 4 months is not a lot of traffic as far as general perceptions of web traffic go.

        1. LVM profile image46
          LVMposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          Just for comparison,

          I know of someone with more than 10,000 hits over 26 hubs over 4 months.  That seems to be four times the traffic.

            Sounds very familiar stats.smile. I think traffic stat is  okay.

        Is that hub and google or mainly hub. I am no expert but i think it makes a difference.

        At some point Hubpages team reported that average earnings are in the range $2-5 per 1000 views. Yours seem to be on the lower side of this range. smile

          Most hubs don't get visitors  Hence their are hubs which earn many dollars for few page visits and their are many gets only visits but no decent income.

          Earning is highly dependent on visitors. if some one is searching for skin care disease will click on ads but wallpaper visitor will click less. If you are getting thousands visitor per day on wallpaper hubs. possible 10 visitors of skin care will beat that wall paper hub.

          Only one ways to increase revenue write Two hubs per day. And add good keyword. Still your hubs will fail but few will make money steadily. Suppose you wrote hundred. at least 10 hub will give you money regularly and few will give you money some times.

      I have to say I just went and had a snoop. That is the clearest messgae I have had on title and how to tag. I think I might just get this one day.

    Eaglekiwiposted 8 years ago

    Well ive been here a  little longer and I still dont have the answer..

    To be honest its a combinations of things

    Topic content/title/keywords/etc

    Backlinks to other hubs, social network sites.ie facebook,email,twitter ,other writing sites

    Advertisements!! when they click ,you get revenue

    Also they tend to match their adverts with whatver Catergory you chose to put your Hub under ,so experiment some with that .

    Im still experimenting and reading other related hubs to gleen tidbits.

    Good luck ,so long as you are earning ,at least the search engines are picking you up.

      I was unaware of this. I better check out my categories.

      1. Marisa Wright profile image94
        Marisa Wrightposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Where did you get that idea?  I'm pretty sure the content of the Hub has more to do with it than the category.

    Lots of your hubs are on poetry and celeb style stuff. These are fun to write, but they simply don't pay.

    If you want to earn from hubs you need to focus on more commercial topics - reviews of vacuum cleaners and the like.

    Also, all traffic is not created equal. Traffic from search engines click on ads. Traffic that mainly constitues other hubbers or people from the social networking sites is pretty much useless from a financial point of view.

      Silver rose tha's a great way of putting it..but can I ask what would be an average google click per week on a hub. The reason I ask is I see what your saying and for my first week or so here I have had lots of clicks from hubbers and on one of my hubs I have had 36 googl and yahoo clicks is this good or not. I am not with adsense yet so would have no idea how much this would have earned me...if anything.

      1. LVM profile image46
        LVMposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        Helen, you should concentrate on hubs that are getting google and yahoo clicks other than hubpages clicks.  They're the ones with higher potential of getting ad clicks.

        1. Helen Cater profile image72
          Helen Caterposted 8 years agoin reply to this

          So what would you say is a good amount of google clicks per month. Also is yahoo counted too.

    2. LVM profile image46
      LVMposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I must agree with Silver Rose - the money makers are those hubs getting hits from the search engines.

      Okay, good, this is what I was asking for, Thanks Silver Rose.

    By clicks I take it you mean hits on the hub, rather than clicks on the ads?

    In terms of hits to the hub, it depends very much on whether you get to the first page of the search results. If you do for the right topic, it can be a gusher. But if you get buried on page 20, you don't get anything.

    This is a vast topic. The best thing I can do is refer you to a free course that is going on at the moment. It actually ends tomorrow, but all the videos are there and you can download the free tools they give tonight (before the offer ends).

    Here's the link (I advise you to click on it asap, because the moderators will come along and snip it pretty soon). It's a series of Youtube videos that explains how to do this online stuff. As it is Saturday, you might as well get yourself a cup of coffee and view them all - it should teach you much more than people on the forums can.

    P.S. Am unconnected to this course, it's free and there are no affiliate links! I personally found it very informative.

    http://www.thirtydaychallenge.com/training/

    Click on each days material and view the videos. If the link above is snipped just google 30daychallenge, and you should find it. I think they will be leaving the videos on there permanently. The most interesting stuff is the first seven days IMO.

    Edit: I forgot to add that you can adapt most of the techniques to Hubpages

    I only read one of your hubs, and while it's good, I see a lot of wasted opportunity. I read the Travel Planning one. It looks like you have Adsense set to low, and you're not pushing any Amazon or eBay products. If that were my hub, you'd bet I'd be pushing things like cool suitcases, Atlases and maps, and other items you might purchase when planning a vacation.

    I see very few other topics that you've written on that you can really monetize, except to try to push books from Amazon. Your "Love" hub, for instance, could at least be advertising books like "Love: What Life is All About". Your "Fashion" hub has possibilities as well to push products.

      These are great tips!  I feel like I add so much but now I see what you mean.  Thanks so so much!

    I have had almost 50,000 views in  5 months since I changed my direction. Hubs should be one of two things, someone looking to purchase something or someone looking advice like health advice or how to do something. You have to put yourself in the readers place and you want to get a hub where you get the reader to leave with a click. Good luck and as the good lady Marisa says, patience is the key !
