    How does one earn from articles published on HubPages? I have never earned anything, I have posted about 11 articles and one in particular has had over 4000 viewings. At the moment I have stopped creating new articles for the platform.

      You need enough articles to generate at least 1k views per day to see earnings. And, of course, it depends if people are searching for the information you are offering.

        Eek, that's false information. I get under 1k a day for most of the year and still make more than the bare minimum for payout each month and I know quite a few who have a CMP higher than me.

        Look at your CPM personally and calculate from there Doreen, but you can only do this once you are signed up for an ad program.

          Okay, but I can only go by my own experience. When I started, I aimed for 1k views per day and then worked up from there.

            Yeah, of course. More views = More earnings.

            1,000 views daily is quite impressive. Do you get this now? If you do, would you mind sharing some of your tips for achieving this.

            I hope to achieve something like this and maybe more as time goes on.

              Yes, my next target is a regular 10k per day. I average around 7.5k at the moment. There are writers here who get much much, more than that smile

              I went to check my total traffic and I've just gone past 4 million views without noticing big_smile

              You just have to keep writing and looking for those rich veins to mine.

                Did you very very recently start hitting those numbers? I'm at 1.5 million and I would say my yearly average is 900 a day. Those are amazing numbers, but I'm confused at you being only 4 million. If it's very recent, anything major that you did to make this happen? New articles or massive overhauls?

                  No, it's been gradual, with a bit of a decline since Christmas like everyone else. It's been picking up recently though but nothing major.

                  I didn't write anything for HP for over three years and then when earnings began to increase a couple of years ago, I started writing again.

        My total views per day are between 250-300 and I reach the minimum for payout every two months. I never had 1k views in one day.

      If your account is linked to Google Adsense then there should not be such a situation. What I understand is hubpages does not pay anything from its side. What it does is sharing of revenue from Google Adsense and others.

    Have you checked the Help Center?

    https://hubpageshelp.com/money/

    I notice you haven't written anything for a year and with just 11 articles your earnings are going to be very low.

  3. CYong74 profile image96
    CYong74posted 5 months ago

    Doreen, when you said you haven't earned anything, do you seriously mean your Earnings page reflect not a cent? If so, did you complete the initial setup? Applying for AdSense and enabling ads, etc?

    4000 views, by my experience, is not going to make you significant money. I doubt that figure would even generate a dollar. However, there should at least be something. A few cents, perhaps.

  4. Doreen Mallett profile image91
    Doreen Mallettposted 5 months ago

    Someone asked if I had not earned a cent - and the answer - not even a cent. I have not posted or a while because financially it didn't seem to make much sense.
    Yes - I have signed up with my paypal account but at the time I did not have enough traffic to do adsense I was told.

    I would really like to know from you all whether you are making reasonable sums of money. At the moment I am looking for other writing avenues because this does not seem to be working for me.

      Yes, many of us make a good living here. That is not going to matter to you. Unless you take the time and go through the hassle of getting an adesense account, you will never earn a cent here.
      If you do not want an adesense account, and do not want to write enough to be considered, then looking elsewhere is your best option.

      I make the $50 minimum more often than not.  And that is based on writing obscure and not very popular topics.  Whether this is right for you depends on whether you can get adsense, and whether you could make more somewhere else.

    3. lobobrandon profile image89
      lobobrandonposted 5 months agoin reply to this

      Last summer almost made 4 figures a month. But, having a Paypal without adsense is not going to get you a cent. You need to have Adsense and Adsesne is based on the number of articles you have not the amount of traffic you get. If you have more than 10 featured hubs, sign up for Adsense and only then expect to start earning. Once you sign up for Adsense you can then sign up for the HP ad program if you choose to, it is this that pays through Paypal, but only after you have associated an Adsense account.

  6. CYong74 profile image96
    CYong74posted 5 months ago

    Doreen, I believe if you already have 10 hubs and one has garnered some traffic, you should apply for AdSense again. Your chances of approval are much higher. Also, the money for most of us comes from the HP ads program, not from Adsense itself.

    To answer your qn, my first day of earning here in Mar 2016 was > 0.01 cents. It was mortifying, to say the least. But after some careful learning,  i am able to have a monthly payout since last year. Not a salary by any measure. But then, i honestly spend less than 10 hours each week working on HP stuffs. To me, it's a pretty handsome deal.

    Thank you all  for your responses to my outreach for help. I will now sign up to AdSense and also consider  the  HP ads.
    I have been reading up on monetizing blogs  and I will see if  I  can  follow some of the advice I have  picked up.
    I  really need to use  writing  as  income  generating.

      Once you have Adsense you can also use it to monetize your blog. In almost all cases of individuals earning from writing on the internet, Adsense is the first step.

  8. CYong74 profile image96
    CYong74posted 5 months ago

    Doreen, I have to warn you about AdSense, based on what you wrote. I fell victim to this when I started.

    AdSense has this confusing difference between a hosted AdSense account and a non-hosted account. The former is when you apply via an AdSense partner like HubPages.

    If your account is of the hosted nature, you can only use it with the partner you applied through. In other words, if you applied via HubPages and is approved, you can only earn from AdSense here. You cannot use the account anywhere else

    Worse, you can't even use it with other partners. Meaning a HP applied for AdSense account cannot be used with YouTube. And vice versa.

    I did a quick search online and it seems the darn system is still there. You should read up more about it if you're planning to monetize any blogs. (Nonetheless, since you already have material here, you should at least get your stuff here monetized)

      Wow. Didn't know it was so crazy.

      1. CYong74 profile image96
        CYong74posted 5 months agoin reply to this

        It was also pretty distasteful. I had AdSense ads on my hubs for 1.5 years, but wasn't paid a cent.

        1. lobobrandon profile image89
          lobobrandonposted 5 months agoin reply to this

          Because you didn't reach 100 USD by the time you made the switch or was there some other reason?

          1. CYong74 profile image96
            CYong74posted 5 months agoin reply to this

            What happened was, I didn't know about all these, so when I started on HP, I activated the earnings program using the Adsense code I received via YouTube. It worked, I began to earn from the HP ads program immediately. However, because my AdSense code was a hosted account established via YouTube, I was not eligible for payment for any AdSense ads displayed on my hubs. According to Adsense rules, you can only earn via one partner if using a hosted account.

            And so for the next 1.5 years, I received nothing for all AdSense ad impressions on my hubs. I could actually see the impressions and clicks in my AdSense stats, but I was not paid a cent. This only changed when I managed to get a full account i.e. a non-hosted account using my own blog.

            In a way, it's my fault too for not researching about it beforehand. Then again, the info wasn't exactly everywhere or obvious. Most people I asked didn't even know what I was talking about. AdSense also, not even once, answered my queries. (Apparently, it was a sudden change thereabout 2016 too)

    I don't even bother looking at my earnings as I know they are next to nothing. I have about 270 featured articles and get about 30 page views per day. Hardly worth the bother but I don't know where else I can publish my writing.

      There are more than 30 English speakers looking for info on going to Tetouan every day, so you should have a lot more traffic than that. You do not need to look for somewhere else to publish as it will do the same until you learn how to write more effective titles from an SEO standpoint. I would suggest that you start by reading lobobrandon ´s article on SEO.
      https://hubpages.com/community/HubPages … -SEO-Guide
      Are you submitting your articles to Hubpages every 2 weeks so that they will be considered for a niche site? If you are not, you need to start that immediately. Your traffic will be much better.
