    It will take some time. I remember a month when nobody clicked on mine as well. Keep on writing hubs. Reading those of others. Link your hubs. Traffic will come. And this will naturally increase clicks.

    Absolutely they do. Otherwise no one here would be making any money. Although it did take a year to receive my first payment.

    Did you enter your affiliate codes into your HubPages account? 

    Did you check your Adsense account reports?  You can see how many clicks you are getting per day, per month, etc in those reports. You can even track individual hubs.

    Make the most use from the tools you have with Google Adsense and Google Analytics for tracking your traffic.

    Do what fibo777 said in his answer to you. All those things are important.

    One more thing...welcome to HubPages and I wish you all the best!

    Two weeks and 14 hubs is not enough for most to start getting clicks. As Glenn indicates, you do want to make sure your account is configured correctly. But it really doesn't go very fast. I'm here for two months and it's still very irregular as far as my clicks are concerned.

    Dr. Wendy, it takes quite a while for articles to be indexed in the search engines and for people to find your content in the search engines. Searches are where most traffic comes from (and your most valuable traffic as well)

    To be honest, I would say that from the writing of a hub for that hub to be in a good position in the search engines is at LEAST three months. Better yet, six months. You may get lucky on a few hubs being at the top for good terms quickly, but that isn't the norm.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me or page all the way down to the very bottom and click "learning center." You'd be surprised about the massive amount of information in the learning center... it's not your every day FAQ, it's some pretty good stuff on how to configure your hubs to make the most money.

    yes but rarely. You should make more quality hubs.

    I do click on the ads which interest me and I want to know further about what the ad is all about.  Don't know whether other people click on them in my hubs or not, however... smile

    Be patient about. First of all you have to participate to forums  , making comments to others , answering questions , following  other hubbers  and making interesting articles. Clicks will come ...
    My first payment came after two years because  I did not give time about all these above. Also spread your new articles at the social networks . Good luck .

    i don't even look at them usually. i'm not here to buy anything and i never shop online so it is meaningless for me to click on them.

    All the answers here are well worth paying attention to.  I might add that hubs always can be improved upon.  I looked at my highest ever ranking hub yesterday, and still found some slight grammar or sentence structure improvements that needed to be made.  Every time you change up a hub, even a little, it makes it new material in the eyes of Google, but it still keeps it's original publication date.  Google likes brand new material, and old material; so by improving your hubs(adding capsules, etc) over time, and the natural aging process. . . .you can't help but win.  Also, I have to wonder, are you promoting your hubs anywhere????  You need to promote them on as many sites as possible for search engine results.

    Yes people click on ads. When you start to get search traffic in, and people find them interesting. Remember Hub Page members are not allowed to click any adsense ads on Hub Pages.

    If you mainly have Hub Page traffic right now, that might be the reason.
