If I have all of my hubs featured, and I'm in the Ebay/Adsense, why have I not made more money?
Over the course of two years I now have 10 of my hubs featured all at once. However, I've only made .45cents. Am I missing something here and is it worth it to stay on HP?? I've had lots of traffic compared to comments. It bothers me that I've put my info into HP to make money and have written some good stuff I guess, since it's featured. I understand the concept of HP but can't decide if my taking the time away from other things to write ( which I love to do), is going to work for me.. Has anyone on HP made decent money here??
I am in the same boat as you are. All of my hubs are featured and I have more than 5 editor's choice, but I am not making much either. We are both at good starts, but I believe that it would take a great amount of views daily for any real money to be made. I have taken a break from Hubpages, and am now going to try to promote and participate to get more readers.
Junegirl58, it is easy to get discouraged after 2 years of little earnings. I took a quick look at your hubs and although the info is good, most of them are short (recipes and poems) which doesn't require a lot of word count. My understanding is that Google likes lots of text, i.e., longer articles that are informative, broken up with images and subtitles. A few of your longer hubs had a lot of straight text and paragraphs without subheadings and images.
The other issue is the small number of hubs. You need a lot more hubs to get earnings to increase over time.
You shouldn't quit yet. You have some good stuff. You just need to rework what you have (formatting, images) and double the number of hubs you have over the next few months. Good luck, be patient, hope to see you around in 2014.
making money at HP is kind of slow now. I had to use other revenue making websites to recommend HP to bring in some views. Right now I am using Bubblews to recommend HP. Useful you know. Ebay... i make 80cents for 4 years. Pitiful earnings. I don't know why the earning is so low either

I think many people are facing same problem on hubpages. My featured hubs turned unfeatured because of traffic and when I tried to edit them and resubmitted, they got unfeatured for quality??I wonder how my high traffic...

So exciting, with a couple of edits they are back on the list! Interesting, when I switched the Ads to 'On' I got an Ad for 'Top 1,000 Latin Ladies!' (could that be right?) Oh my, (It's a Hub about my favorite Hub...

Why are we seeing the same old not so good hubs featured on front pages?Is it that there are so few new hubs published or people getting bored with HP?

For some unspecified reason, HubPages has chosen not to feature what I believe to be one of the bestHubs I have written. After learning that HubPages was not going to feature it without editing, I added a poll to...

I just completed my first year on hubpages. Until recently, I haven't had any issues getting my hubs featured. Just a few tweaks coming from Squidoo and all was well, but recently with every hub I edit, I...

You may have noticed some Hubs have become featured. We are continuing to tweak this system so that it has less impact on the best Hubbers. Our hope is to have additional Hubs become featured as we...
