        Oh gosh I wish! Each hub has been a lesson, some do not do very well at all and there in lays the lessons.

        I have had some earnings since starting tho... £2.75 with todays earnings so far a whopping £0.01 lol

        For me I think my goal really is down to trying to get more views a day, earnings will happen if I can get steady and increasing traffic daily

          I must be doing something really right, and I wish I could bottle it, and sell it on here. 7 weeks of AdSense earnings are now at $127 and the revenue is coming from around 10 hubs. Some of my earlier hubs are just coming to life and I am over the moon by the earnings I have. My organic traffic is now nearly over taking hubpage views. It's funny how you think you have a hub that will never earn and then it springs to life.

            I would be interested in having a look at those hubs! I suspect they are on good high paying high traffic topics. I also suspect they are very well written too!

              They are a mixture of topics and vary each day as to which earns me money. I actually do the opposite to everyone else and go for keywords that have less than half a blue bar, and less than 5000 views per month. I have done much better on some keywords that have only 500 views as the competition is so poor and I have found myself on the first page because of this. I have never tried to get backlinks as I don't know how but seem to get them anyway. One big thing that has helped is if I see a hub that has had very low views I edit and change some tags. It boosts the views and pushes things along. i do this everyday until it's sitting with good average daily views. I am constantly proof reading and always find something wrong that makes a big difference to my traffic. Try it yourself as I am sure you will see a leap up.

            Wow! $127 in less than two months is great.  Your niche as a hairdresser writing about hair and cosmetic stuff is popular and your hubs are informative with expert tips so I would think a lot of peole would want to look for your hubs.

            1. Helen Cater profile image75
              Helen Caterposted 8 years agoin reply to this

              Yes, the how to hairdressing, and reviews are well searched, and the health topics, especially cosmetic earn good clicks. I'm lucky that I have thousands of articles I could write, but not feeling much up to it at the moment. In my early days I read every single hub on SEO and traffic untill I knew for sure how to get the most out of my work. If you want any tips let me know and I will try and explain the best I can.

                I've read some of them and they've clarified things a lot for me. I like your writing style and your strategic thinking. You worked very hard to understand the SEO stuff, much more than I would care to! Thanks for the help, I might take you up on that some time soon.

                  Your welcome, I hope they are easy to understand, as I tried not to waffle too much, and get straight to the point. It is actually easy once the penny drops. I am not saying I am an SEO wizz, but I think I get it, which is something. Good luck, and I'm sure you will do great. One other tip. When you chose your topic and keywords, just jot down a few sentences you would ask in a search engine. write these into the first paragraph of your hub, along with your keywords as this will give you lots of search engine optimization grouped together. Always finish your hub with your main keywords included in the last paragraph without repeating yourself.

    May I ask, How much traffic do you get per day or per 7 days

    1. kirstenblog profile image76
      kirstenblogposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yesterday I had 61 page impressions showing in my google adsense, last 7 days was 191 and all time 2,157. Building steady traffic does take time and good content. My goal is to get 1,000 impressions a day, at that point I will probably double that number lol. I have a ways to go still but its a fun journey. I don't think this writing malarkey is going to make me an over night millionaire but if I can build it up to a decent passive income that would free me up to pursue other things like freelance writing etc.

      Helen Caterposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      Yes and they get global also. My main traffic is google.com.

    Helen you are one smart lady! You always have good tips n tricks to try. I wonder if you have any tricks for amazon sales? I am still trying to crack that one as I suspect once I do it could be a real good potential earner.

      Now I don't really bother with other affiliates, and I have written about my short experiences. I have been testing Amazon, as in the beggining I read a hub where a top huber said they felt it went against their AdSense earnings. It was distracting for viwers. I took all my Amazon capsules out apart from one that should really do well. It has not and since removing, my earnings have kept growing. now this may not be the case, but when I put Amazon capsules on my hubs I had zero AdSense earnings for three days bar a few dollars. taking them away increased my earnings back to normal. It's for you to decide and test. I never hear anyone saying they earn a lot from Amazon so this way does not bother me. Me and AdSense are doing great on our own, so why change something that is not broken.

    I'm coming up right behind you. Way to go! Inspiring to read that you too are seeing some income now. I have a question though, as my hubs have been kind of all over the place, do the ones here who do a niche find that works better? I have one in mind but am wondering if I am limiting myself.
