    I have around 547 views on my article but o earning. How many views do I need to get to start earning?

      You need around 1000 per day to see any significant earnings. One article isn't enough.

      I like this. It needs some proofreading, but it's refreshing to read a scientific approach to this kind of topic and not another "god did it" article.

      Theraggededge is right (as usual) about traffic and earnings. If you want to increase your earnings, you could begin to develop a niche in accessible science articles, possibly including lesson plans for schools/kids/teachers to use.You would need to provide a "Sources" section at the end so we know you're right about what you're saying.

      You have a nice light style, and I like your sense of wonder. If you tighten up your grammar/spelling and provide clean structure, it's possible your lessons could find an audience.

    Assuming that some of those views came from Google or other search engines, and not all from you checking out your own article, you should have started earning already. I do not know how much, but a dollar or two.
    The fact that you have 0 indicates a problem. Do you have an adesense account? Have you added it to your account page so that hubpages can start accumulating your earnings?
    You will also need to add a Paypal account, but that can be done later. You must add an adesense account immediately.
    The thing is, adsense is not going to give you an account if all you have ever done is write one article. You need to read the suggestions from greenmind.

      You can't even apply for an Adsense account until you've got at least 10 featured articles.  To earn even one dollar you need far more than 547 views on one article.  I earned cents per day for my first two years and had many more views than that!  Also, we are not here to earn.  We are here to write!  If we write well and produce many articles, over time we begin to earn.  It takes a lot of work to produce good articles, and it takes time to build up credibility with Google.

        547 times 60% = 328 impressions
        328 times $5 CPM (of course I do not know his CPM) = over one dollar
        (He also needs to realize that payment is based on impressions, not page views)

          That sounds good, but the CPM for one article would be almost nothing.!

            I thought CPMs were based on views, not number of articles. If someone writes a very successful article (remember that Kardashian game a few years back?) and has over a million views, I do not think it matters.
            This person did not write an article like that, obviously.

    This writing gig is what they call HARD WORK. I'm totally here to earn though. It's hard work, and I don't do hard work for nothing.

    I would not think CPM has anything to do with the number of articles someone has here. I could be wrong. I would just need to read something official to think that.

    I thought CPM had to do with advertising on any particular day. Like the stock market and any individual stock or fund, etc, CPMs go up and they go down depending upon numerous factors. That's what I always thought. Right now CPMs are high because it is shopping season.

    I've definitely had some very wrong ideas about things in this world though.
