Should I throw in the towel after being on hubpages more than a year with no payout ?
Ok I paid for someone on seoclerks to put a link to my profile and then I got a fraudulent traffic warning. I am trying to fix my mistake, but really the hits were to my profile and the traffic going up on certain hubs were my better ones anyway and I doubt were from a link wheel. My earnings are a big 6.15 this month? I guess the big increase is from some link whee. I try to be honest about writing about poverty and raising kids. I raised mine living way below the poverty level and they both finished high school and at least are trying to get college degrees.
I make absolutely nothing yet but it's been great therapy. I've gotten things off my chest on here and asked many questions. I didn't always like every answer but each one was a learning experience. I'm not sure I'll ever get enough hubs written but I enjoy writing. I think if you enjoy writing then stick with it. Your big break could be just around the corner. I can post your work on my facebook account and see if people will Share. The more people who don't know you and Share, the better your chances get.
It is great therapy to write about personal issues and a lot of fun to write about things you enjoy. I like writing and researching history and such. I like trying recipes and posting the results. I try to post good hubs I read on my facebook,
I have made payout 3 times in about a year and a half- my traffic is organic, with some from pinterest and facebook. Having looked at your page, I can see that you're on the right track. You have already done the hard work by writing all your content, and I think it just needs tweaked for the best results.
Firstly, work on your titles- use google keywords tool to find a variation that people are searching for. For example, your hub on furnishing a flat could be: how to furnish your first flat cheaply/ frugally/ on a budget (choose one with best results)
Secondly, try to tidy up your hubs- some are quite messy with pic credits being 5 lines long, as well as ads being in there, and polls dotted in amongst it all. There is no flow.
I'd be more than happy to help you along the way to get a payout with no trickery or traffic sites, just some basic things that have worked for me along the way :-)
I second this advice after checking out a couple of your hubs. Work on keywords in your articles and titles. Get organic traffic and Pinterest/Facebook traffic. Don't let that many articles go to waste.
That is good advice . I intentionally put the ads and polls in there to break up the long hubs. Should these things go at the end?
I usually tuck mine in at the side, after I've made a few points. If you put them at the end they could get missed... I don't want to self promote, but have a wee look at my corset making or nail biting hubs. They look good, and include everything.
I have been here four years and not had payout yet, although I have only been on adsense for about five months, and am now notching up about $5.00 per month so should get my first payout at the end of the year. hang in there, if you enjoy writing.
The harsh reality is that HubPages cannot be used as supplemental income. Rather, it's more like 'found' money. As in, "oh look, I found this dollar lying on the sidewalk." If you enjoy writing hubs, then by all means keep at it. Eventually you'll get a payout. But if you're looking for some serious money, you aren't likely to find it here.

I haven't had a single click in nearly three weeks, and nothing from amazon either. Some of my pages are on the front page of Yahoo, and the second page of Google, but nobody's clickin! Do I need to set up a big neon green arrow on my pages that says "Click Here!!", or what?
