Year 2019 could indeed be prosperous. It might even provoke me into adding back some new hubs.
I can officially report that as of today I have doubled my earnings from last year. I was hoping this would happen but didn't think it would when the glitch showed up, but somehow it has...so I'm a happy camper (pardon the pun).
I was curious after reading your post and went back to check my earnings against last year. I have made more than twice what I did in 2017 too.
I guess that makes me a happy camper too (even if I do not own an RV!)
I totally agree! November and December are the slowest months of the year for the gardening niche. Despite that, I have made payout this month. Since I have more than a few Christmas related hubs, I'm confident of making payout in December also. This is the first year in all of my years on HP (11 years) that I have made payout at the end of the year.
Yes, do it! Optimism is the best choice.
I keep adding new hubs, and I keep making more money. Seems to work just that way.
Yes, looking really good right now. Hope it holds into the new year. Hey, I might be inspired as well to add something new. Hope to hit 100 articles one day.
I find that it's best to keep my expectations low and just keep truck-truck-truckin' along. Lately I've been pleasantly surprised.
Just about to hit four figures. Best month's earnings ever. Thank you HP.
CPM is the highest also at the moment that it has been for years.
Looks to me like we've gotten past the doom and gloom. I've likewise already hit payout for this month. And as for last month, I just got the usual PayPal-HubPages fan mail.
I got paid more today than ever before. To clarify, I guess I should say that in the past NINE years, I didn't always put much effort into it. The last 3 years I have put real effort into this stuff.
Next month is looking very good, but will not likely be my second highest payout, maybe my 3rd highest though.
I've never been so happy as I am right now with the Hubpages network. The times I was unhappy with the place had more to do with me being a moron, than anything else.
I used to think that if I started a page in the morning, then I should be done with the thing in an hour or two. That was my problem with this whole deal. Impatience.
I'm no bigshot around here. I'm just saying what has made me more successful is that now I will spend a week thinking about how and what I'm going to say about a thing.
I can only submit one thing every two weeks, so why not spend two weeks thinking about what to put into a page, and what to leave out?
I just wish I was more serious when I started here. I'd be well past ten million views by now.
Thanks for this positive post. This isn't my best month of the year, but it isn't my worst, and overall, I have more than doubled my earnings from last year! Thanks for getting me to check that.
I did far better last year. I was making like 4-5x the amount of views & 7x at the peak. Earnings are only about 1/8 of what they were last year. I suppose some of my work has been mostly all for nothing. And my views are only 10% of what they were compared to 2011 which was my highest success. Google is really making me disappointed. The algorithms and what not.
The internet is huge, but I don't know of any other sites like this. Constant Content was super strict when I wrote for them. And not much passive earning potential on there unless you write 1000 articles, get them approved, and sell them all. Basically a ghost writer there.
I agree, there is no other place like HubPages. I have written for many different companies, and on many different platforms over the past 10 years of active online writing. HubPages suits me best. I need the flexibility in level of commitment. I like the variety of content. I like the openness of the process. I enjoy the community. I don't "talk" much, but I am often on the forums. I've been here a while.
I have been writing on Hubpages since 2008, I think. My collection of articles has followed many of the trends over time. I was here when we were all creating compeltely keyword-based articles with multiple Amazon Capsules--back when volume was key. I never made a huge amount of money that way. I remember hopping hubs, the "first" Google algorithm change, and black hat/white hat debates in the forums. Now, I have a fraction of the number of articles I used to have... And each one earns many times more than the ones I had out there before.
I am happy with the improvements. My earnings have increased. I am more proud of my articles now,
I sincerely hope HubPages stays around for a good while longer. It offers a rare combination of qualities that I have not seen anywhere else.
EDIT: Since 2010. :-)
Hubpages is doing well these days just to still be viable. Props.

I only write about one article weeking but I've written more than 450 hubs, so I don't expect a huge amount of income. I seem to get as much traffice now as I did last year, yet the earnings seem to be down over the past few months. Did something change as to how much Hubpages pays?

It's only the 20th of the Month, but my earnings for this month are already 10 times greater than what it was for April last year. It's also almost the highest ever (even though CPMs are half of what they were in December) It's mostly due to increased traffic and the CPMs (compared to last year). I...

Things started falling apart last month and they have continued this month. I have lost more than half of my traffic and this month I could not even reach a payout (i manage USD 34.67). I used to get a payout every month since July 2012. What is happening with Hubpages?
