I know it's a question that's been asked a thousand times, probably more but I just don't know the answer to it. I promise I've read an reread all the relevant hubs but I just can't work it out - I think I'm going wrong with making money on Hubpages but I'm not sure where.
I mean, I don't necessarily want heaps of cash but after three months (or is it four?) my earnings are tottering at $1.70 - is that normal? Nor have I received any pin number from Google yet on my Google account there's nothing indicating whether they've sent it or not. I admit I'm confused.
It was normal for me! I think I was at about $5 after three months (with 55 Hubs). Now I cash out every month. My experience is that traffic and earnings increase with the age of your Hubs, so patience is a virtue!
And Google won't send your pin till you've earned $10.
Have you set your Hubs up as separate Channels in Adsense? That will let you track which ones are earning the best - and that way, you'll start to learn what subject work, and which don't.
Are you making Hubs with the intention and focus to earn, or are you just writing about whatever?
Ten hubs a month, that's a decent pace. Just keep writing, make sure they're quality hubs that meet all the parameters that are well defined in all those hubs you've said you read.
Eventually what happens is you hit a dinger hub that helps your traffic a lot. Just keep writing, you'll start collecting more and more dingers and, you'll be good to go.
After five months, my Adsense earnings have just hit the dizzy heights of £6.00! And after three months, I had about £2.
I think the people who say that they make loadsamoney quickly from Adsense on Hub Pages are either (a) lying, (b) lucky or (c) already have a high degree of expertise in SEO and affiliate marketing, combined with the know-how to write on subjects that attract traffic and have high-paying keywords.
Thanks everyone - that's enlightened me a bit.
Relache - Yes, I'm just writing hubs on topics that interest me - I'm sure that's a big reason for the tumbleweed.
Hi Shadesbreath - I did have a 'dinger' a month back and it helped me a lot! If it hadn't been for that one reckon I wouldn't be at the dizzy heights of $1,70!
Hi Marisa Wright! I keep hearing about Adsense but I admit I haven't used it. I'll start reading up, thanks!
EmpressFelicity - so it sounds like my earnings are normal then. Well done for the extra thirty one pence! Perhaps when I'm a very old lady I'll be celebrating my first $100!

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

Hi,I've signed up and am ready to start making hubs in my specialised subject, but I was wondering what the earning potential of hubbig (if that's a word) actually is. I realise it all depends on how attractive your pages are and how good they are etc, but what are people actually earning? I am not...

I'm so close to a payout, finally - after almost 2 years. I realize I haven't had one sooner becuz I haven't done all of the things that earn us money here on HP. I started out not caring if I made money, I was writing for fun. But now that I'm so close I find myself checking in...

I only have 5 hubs on here. I don't know if it's because I also write for other sites, and I'm used to earning a penny or two a day, but my earnings through the ad program have been impressive considering the lack of hubs that I have. Hubpages is definitely working for me. But, google, on the other...
