    That sounds about right. You have to build up slowly but you can get there.

    You are doing well, since your earnings keep doubling.  They won't always double, but it sounds like a great trend to me. 

    If you are unhappy with those earnings though, you could write more quality hubs to make them go up even farther.

    I've been here over 12 months.. looks right to me  but it may be the hubs we are writing.. I just do poetry and some creative writing.. for the first  9 months I haven't broken the  4 cents a month  thingy.. then I did   6 cents  I believe  I haven't earned anything..but I don't expect to  I just like the writing..   but  I have over 7500 views.. I have ebay on my pages.. and adesnse  but I have made no cents yet  LOL..   enjoy the the hubs here..  they seem to be of the highest quality.. and I don't put a price on that my friend  smile  Frank

    Don't expect a great deal from 3 months - some people get lucky with traffic, and others go at a normal rate (like yourself). Make quality Hubs, possibly one a day, get some tags and feedback, and promote yourself to friends on Facebook and Twitter (if you use them. I hear that people in the NHS can't use it as it's illegal).

    But as "Jesus was a Hippy" said, you'll need to be extremely patient. Also, try and become quite diverse with your topics. As a critic, I review video games but often criticize films and soon plays and bands. Spread your wisdom, no matter what it may be! ^^

    Cheek0o, Congratulations that is awesome,  I want to do the same but I am running into some problems and cannot find a good answer on the forums.  I have a question this is off topic, but you it seems as though you have had success signing up for adsence.  Do you remember the URL that you put as your page.  I have tried lgibbons.hubpages.com, http://lgibbons.hubpages.com, www.lgibbons.hubpages.com but always I get rejected for domain ownership.  Do you have any pointers? 

    Way to go and keep it up!!

    Research your keywords. Try turning off hubpages ad program, you may have more luck with adsense only as it's click based rather than impressions. Look into whether targeted ads are better than the default cookie related ads. Backlink your hubs. Write a lot more and get more traffic. Do all of those things and you may find you make more.

    can the hubpages ad program and the adsense both run along side by side?? if yes,how?

    Big things start from small beginning. Your small earning tells you something,
    aside from doubling it, if you write 100 hubs x 0.20= money.   The potential is there to earn more.

    At least you are earning, other hubbers are not as fast as you

    It's good that you're already seeing a few cents there. But to be honest, you could have earned more. 9 hubs in 3 months is not a good number. I highly recommend writing at least one hub a day.

    To put things into perspective, this account is 8 days old and my earnings so far is $0.70. Probably other hubbers did better during their first week but I certainly did better than majority of the people here. All I really did was write hubs.

    I think you should give attention more to what you are writting rather than how much you are earning.If earning is your main perspective rather than showing your individuality,you will never go so far.Just try to write as mentality to help other by giving your opinion,money will come automatically.Lastly,your initial earning is not so bad.I think its a good starting.And you will do well in the coming days.Be with hubpage and someday you will must be a gainer.

    Part of it is luck, but you can make your luck yourself.  As many of the others have said, quantity matters.  You have to have a fairly large array of well-written hubs on different subjects to start hitting a wider group of readers.

    Social networking:  Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and emailing links to your friends and family are all important.  Shoot, one hubber pointed out that MySpace is still a great place to post about music subjects.

    Don't be afraid to go re-work your hubs if they don't seem to be working; delete them if they aren't fixable.  I took a look at all of your hubs and the two that seemed the most likely to generate the most traffic are the McDonald's piece and the one on Stereotypes in advertising.  You might expand them, reformat them, or write sequels to them.  Put the link to the new one in the comments if you do that.

    On your Stereotypes piece, you don't have spacing between punctuation and the next sentence.  Go back and fix that.  It had good content and good feedback, but running everything together was hard on my eyes.

    I joined December 25, 2011.  I made 14 cents in December and am sitting at $4.65 as of today, January 14, 2012.  My original goal was a hub a day.  Now it's 1000 hubs before year end.  The more you write, the more you have a chance to get noticed.  That notice may lead to a HubNugget nomination, a Hub of the Day award, or simply more traffic.

    Good luck,

    Hell, yeah...     At that rate, you can buy a 12 ounce beer in at least 6 months; rock on!

    That's the same time I joined and I have $0.21. It's nice to have that and then I learned I had some adsense too. I did kinda think that I could make a little money here, which I will but I write to get my name out there so just keep doing what you are doing. My money, when it first came it started with my very first hub a review.

    I think reviews and recipes get more views, that's just me. I would like to put more substance but..When the mood strikes I get on here and poetry hits..
