Over 500 page views and zero AdSense earnings. Am I doing something wrong?
Shouldn't I have at least a few pennies in there? I'm pretty sure the ads are relevant to my hub topics. I'm not complaining, I'm just concerned that maybe I don't have my settings correct or maybe my AdSense pub id is incorrect. I checked it and it seems to be right. Any advice?
I can understand your feelings. But don't lose hope. Earning money from adsense is a bit difficult in Hubpages when you are using Hp ad program. Remember your ads are displayed for 60% of the time, so if there is no click during that time you won't earn anything.
In my case, I have not reach a single adsense click for over 3000 page views. But I do earn decently from Hubpages ad program for page views. On average I am earning 3 dollars for per 1000 page views , for 3000 I am earning 9 dollars which is very Good.
You are a beginner and going to face harder time for couple of months. I recommend you to calm down and continue publishing quality Hubs. Make an Objective to post 30 Hubs within 1 or 2 months. Google takes time to rank Hp articles. So, you are going to see the good result when you become 6+ months old user.
I hope this will help.
I have over 1500 views and have earned one penny. Honestly, I rarely click on a adsense ad.
hi, I'm pretty new to all this so I don't know if you are going wrong any where. I've had 200 hundred views and earned 30 cents, still don't know where the money comes from. have you signed up to everything there was on offer? has it all been approved?
Keep on writing quality content and the earnings will come, provided you have registered with all the affiliate you need to.
It definitely takes a long time and many views (unless you get a bit lucky early on) and i'd imagine your experience is quite typical.Given your hubs are so young means that a majority of your page views are probably from other hubbers which are statistically far less likely to click on ads than the traffic you will generate organically through the search engines.It is also the case that your number of views includes your own views of your own hubs from anytime you visit them yourself to edit or check them. Welcome to hubpages btw and hopefully you'll get your first click soon enough. By the time it comes you'll probably laugh at the fact that a few cents or pennies will actually make you smile with a bit of momentary satisfaction, happiness and sense of achievement.GL :-)
Some of your responses seem to suggest that I am impatient or upset. I can assure you that I only asked the question because I thought I might have my settings incorrect. I know it will take time to get large amounts of traffic. I plan to write more and more hubs in the coming weeks. I want to average at least 1 hub per day. I could probably crank out 3 or 4 per day, but they would not be good quality writings. It takes time to thoroughly research the topics I write about and I want to present true and real information. Anyway, I have double checked my settings and everything seems to be in order. Thanks for the replies and have a wonderful day.

I took the hubpage challenge and completed it. 30 hubs in less than 30 days (just). My hubs are doing okay with almost 300 views and averaging about 15 a day, but no recorded onward orders. I have google adsense and...

Okay, guys! What am I doing wrong here? I have written 39 hubs, and only made $4.94 on AdSense. That must be the hardest earned $4.94 of my life - no joke! I made more than that in one evening of...

First, please forgive me if this has been asked a hundred times already. I've tried searching through the forums, but without a better search feature, it's difficult to find out if someone has already asked about the...

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...

First let me say that I make no money off this program. Its free. The point of this whole hub is to help others help themselves get higher ranks in the search engines for free. That said I don't seem to be able to get...
