      Hi Cheryl,
      You have a good number of articles. I looked through a few, and some of the titles are very long, also the subtitles. Check your grammar too, the standards are much higher now. I also noticed some really long paragraphs, (I am guilty of this too), but it turns readers off. Try to make them smaller.

      Otherwise, try to get them on niche sites and listen to what Wesman said. It looks like most of your work is still on HP, that's pretty much a graveyard now. Fix them up and you can apply to get two articles each month on a niche site, where you will get a lot more traffic. Good luck.

        You did not address the question I asked which is does HP pay for page views.

          Actually, she did, the second paragraph where you are told to listen to what Wesman said.

            No my question is whether Hubpages will pay for page views without AdSense.

              No. They never did and never said they'd do that. This is what I refer to when I say Wesman answers your question:

              You DO get paid for page views, but ONLY if you've got active affiliation with the advertising available.

              You need a Google Adsense account first and foremost. After you get that, you should then join the Hubpages Ad program, which generally pays more than Adsense.

                I'm waiting on Adsense now. It's been 2 months and it just says processing.  Im going to cancel and start over and see what happens.  Thank you.

                  Good luck. If I recall, you can sign up through hupages. Maybe look into the learning center.

          As has been stated, yes, if you are signed up for at least Adsence if not HP ad program as well.  No ads, no pay and that's the only way it's ever worked.
          1000 views might get you a few dollars depending on what your CPM was so you aren't really losing anything if not set up yet.  See Wesman's reply and read the info the learning center.

    Proceed to https://hubpages.com/faq/ . At right is a Table of Contents. Select "Making Money on HubPages". There's a lot of hoops to jump through these days to get everything setup. And then you got to generate the traffic. smile

      If they pay for page views should I not see earnings for the views I already have?

        If you're not seeing earnings for your page views, then you need to look at your earnings tab, and see whether or not your ad program, or Adsense statuses say they are active.

        If they are not active, then you're not going to be getting any earnings. You certainly need to do whatever is needed to make advertising active for yourself, and you should get an amazon affiliation as well.

        Best of luck to you.

          Someone who has been writing for Hubpages for eight years says that Hubpages pays for page views regardless of adds. Is this not true anymore? I am confused.

            That person expressed whatever they were trying to say very poorly. Or they just lied to you. You DO get paid for page views, but ONLY if you've got active affiliation with the advertising available.

            You need a Google Adsense account first and foremost. After you get that, you should then join the Hubpages Ad program, which generally pays more than Adsense.

            You should also get an Amazon affiliation so you can sell products from amazon.com.

            What Wesman says below is how it works. It never worked any other way.

                  Good to hear. Doing ok, traffic appears to be a little slower compared to this time last year, but a decent upswing on cpm. Too early to tell yet. Summer approaching so that's when the big bucks start coming in! (Hopefully)

                    I think so too, but I have not really compared numbers yet. I'll be doing it this weekend.

                    Am glad to hear about the CPM. I successfully snuck across the AdSense payout finish line recently, so am giving the HP Ad Program another spin to see how it's doing.

        If you've set everything up, yes: https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/reports .

    If you do not have your Adsense and Hubpages ad program set up yet, do not worry about that 1000 views. You would have earned little if any money from that. You are going to need a lot more traffic to make money. I was so worried about that when I first started, I felt like I was missing out on earnings.

    Cheryl, you need to look at https://hubpages.com/faq/ as paradigmsearch has aleady told you.

    If you insist on a simple answer to your question, then NO, Hubpages does not pay you per thousand views. You earn via the ads placed on your articles multiplied by the number of views/ clicks. The best-paying ads only appear on well written articles that have been moved to niche sites. A thousand views can earn you from zero cents to several dollars, but it all depends on the topic and how long people stay on your page. It is not a simple formula, so you need to read the FAQ link above AND have an active AdSense account linked to HubPages.
