I joined HubPages 3 years ago but my last article was a little over an year ago, so imagine my surprise when I received mail from Paypal a few days ago about my first payment from HubPages!
I really love this site and I want to continue writing, but I just can't seem to get the inspiration, and life hasn't been very nice to me lately. Also my AdSense account and Amazon affiliate account got shut down during my downtime. Lost all inspiration.
HubPages seems to have grown a lot during the time I was away. But I will hopefully be back, and write here again.
This is my first ever payment for writing something. Thanks a lot to HubPages and its great community!
Congratulations, Rafa. Wishing you continued success ahead!
That first payout is a great motivator. Hooray!
If life has been appalling -- that, in itself, could be a good starting point. How are you finding your way through? A lot of people in similar circumstances could be helped by what you are are experiencing, and how you are dealing with things.
Wishing you well...
Congrats! I hope you keep writing. Once you get your first payment they start coming quicker until you're getting a payment every month! Don't lose hope!
Keep up the good work, and please write and I have been told that if I couldn't be inspired by anything to write about, then write about not being able to be inspired by writing, I know it has helped me tremendously. Good luck and congrats on the payout.
Congrats. But you can't earn from HP without an Adsense account. So it must be still active since you received payout.
Is adsense required even for Hubpages ads? Maybe you're right. I do remember signing up for adsense using HubPages. I should probably check again. I don't even remember if I checked the correct google account. I just remember being kicked out of the Adsense account due to some account error when I tried signing in.
Yes, actually you have to have an Adsense account even to earn from HP. So Brandon is right - your Adsense account must still be active. You'll want to check your articles to see which niche sites they are on and make sure you add any that aren't already added to your Adsense account. Also be sure to submit any of your articles that aren't already there to niche sites. That makes a huge difference in earnings.
Adding niche sites to adsense? I think I just connected my Adsense accout to hubpages. Am I supposed to do that for niche sites too?
Only some of my articles are on niche sites. Most of my articles definitely need some editing before I try the niche sites. Thanks for the idea.
Turns out I was checking the wrong adsense accout. I was logging in to my adsense using another gmail account and it kept telling me my account was disapproved and I thought it was due to lack of ad activity or something...
But I guess it isn't much use. It seems to have gathered just 20 cents over all these years...
Happy for you. I hope you are able to get your inspiration back. Maybe you should try writing about what's happening in your life, if it isn't so private. That might help.

I've seen a lot of people say no, but I've also seen people saying they are making money through HubPages. So which is it?

I just read on another thread that we must add the niche sites to our AdSense account. I don't know anything about this and don't know how to do it. Could someone please give step-by-step directions on how to get this accomplished? I don't remember hearing about this when the niche sites started....

Just want to share my happiness when I received today my first payout in the HP ad program. My Google Adsense earnings lag way far behind HP ad program. I don't expect to get my earnings in adsense at all. I'm motivated to write more hubs if only I have more time to do so. Thanks Hubpages.

I have just received my first HP payout on PayPal late last month (USD$60-something)! It was a long journey since I was not very active and I wrote on and off (I only have 31/32 hubs at the moment). To all the hubbers who are wondering what I am earning monthly now, I average around USD20/mo, which...

Being new I'm not sure I totally understand the way to generate income here in HP. Am I to understand that one must have an Adsense account to earn income? I've applied for an Adsense account some time ago but have not heard anything from them. Does this mean no matter how good my hubs are and how...

I finally received my first payout from Hubpages since joining 18 months ago. It took a while. If Google haven't changed their algo I would have made payout about a month or two sooner. Now I am almost there for my first Hub Ad Program payout since the change by Hubpages.
