When do earnings start showing?

    I implemented Adsense over seven days ago, and it seems that based on my page views so far, there'd be at least one ad click. But every time I check "earnings," for every day listed it says $0.00. Sometimes under the "Yesterday" header it says "Pending," but then next day it'll say $.0.00.  I could not locate in the FAQ anything that could explain this. Do the earnings not show until they've reached a minimum threshold? I just want to make sure that everything is working, that there's no glitch. Thank you ahead of time for your answers.

      Don't worry about 'pending,' this is perfect normal.
      However, looking at your accolades Lorra, you do not appear to have reached 1,000 views yet. This is an extremely low number.
      As a bare minimum, you want to be reaching this threshold, on a daily basis, in order to earn a couple of dollars.
      Hope this helps, but generating passive income from writing takes a matter of years and not weeks. Good luck!

      Hi Lorra,

      It usually takes around 5-7 days before the program starts to kick in, good luck!

    Hi Lorra do you mean that now you have adsense and are using the HP ad program? You do not need clicks, only page views and impressions. If you are seeing so few that you are earning less than one cent per day, it is not going to show up.

    Go to your account page and click on "earnings'. Check the status of the HP earning program and the adsense code. If everything is listed as active then the problem is that you are not getting enough traffic. I noticed that you do not even have the 1000 page view accolade, so you must be getting very few page views.

    The best thing you can do to increase your page views is try to get your articles moved over to niche sites. If they stay on HP main site they will never have good page rank with Google. Select your best article and submit it to a niche site. (The button is at the top of the article. Just click it and make sure that you have followed the parameters that they will provide to you.)

      Hi DrMark,

      I found out the HP program was not activated; so I activated that. As for this niche thing, this sounds like you're recommending I repost an article to another site (and Google penalizes for duplicate content). I also don't see a "buttom" at the top of my articles for niche sites. How will my article on another site gain me income unless I have Adsense, etc., set up on THAT site as well.  I just joined HP about two weeks ago, so I don't expect to have many PVs yet. I just wanted to make sure things were technically working.

    An issue I see that might be a problem is that in three weeks you have submitted 40 articles. That's a very high output and it may be reflected in your low Hubber score. However, I skipped through a couple and they seem to be competently written.

    Perhaps the issue is that you are writing on a highly saturated topic; there are millions of Internet articles on weight/exercise/fitness. Yours may be ranking so low that nobody is finding them.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful.

      Everything that anyone wants to know about is saturated. So I'm hoping that Google's recognition of HP as a strong site will enable some of my articles to "bump" posts of similar topics on sites like livestrong, which has suffered blows from recent Google updates. What hasn't been saturated already? Topics that nobody's interested in. I can only write about what my expertise is.

        Google does not recognize HP as a strong site. Do a search for anything and see how many HP articles pop up. Google does rank the niche sites better, probably because they are on specific subjetcs. It is much more likely to see something on CalorieBee when you are searching.
        Yes, sometimes the articles are moved automatically and the article is moved immediately. If it is not, submit it. Are you saying that you can not find the place to "submit to a hubpages network site"? It is at the top of each page, next to edit, stats, and delete.
        Yes, it will take a lot of time to submit these, as you can only submit one article every 2 weeks.

          And as far as writing about what your expertise is in, I think that is great. You are not likely to see immediate traffic, no matter the subject, but over time a well written article by someone that knows a subject has a much better chance to be recognized, shared, bookmarked, and ultimately acheive a better page rank on the search engines. Keep doing what you are.

            Thank you, that helps, will just be patient.

    When you submit an article to a niche site it is simply moved not duplicated. The niche sites are part of HubPages.

      As for submitting articles to niche sites...I thought all this time that they were automatically "sent" to the category or niche that was selected when you choose a "Topic" drop-down, and then the subsequent sub-topics that branch off. Otherwise, it seems pointless to have the "Topic" drop-down at the start of "Write" if then, after a post is published, you have to resubmit it for a second review after clicking on a bunch of "I agree" requirements. To do this with 40 posts will be quite time consuming. My only question at this point is, what IS the point of the preliminary "Topic" drop-down choices? Nearly all of my articles fall under the niche of "CalorieBee," which I thought they were automatically going to because I was selecting "Health and Fitness" under the "Topics."

      EDIT:  I just tried to submit a second article to a niche, and a message pops up telling me I just submitted one in the past 14 days and to wait till July 21 to resubmit. In other words, we can submit only one article to a niche every 14 days? 14 x 40...

        All new hubs are assessed within a week or so of being published and are often moved directly to a network site.

        However, if you have articles that you feel are top quality, you can submit them manually. Click on the article on your account dashboard and then click the large "Submit to a Hubpages network site" button. Follow the directions. You can only submit one every 14 days.

        The network sites are not the same as the topic category that you select when writing a hub. That is for publishing on HubPages.com which is the default site for all new articles, and those that aren't deemed suitable for the networks.

        The problem may be with the number of articles you have published in such a short time. I don't know if there is some 'flag' that is triggered, but your hubberscore is way low for the number and quality of the articles you have.

        Maybe it would be a good idea to contact the team directly? Click on Help, top right.

          I wondered about the publication rate myself, though I don't know why that would work against me. My score of 42 doesn't jive with the fact that 35 of the articles are "Featured," and only four are not. The remaining four are still under review.

            I agree. It doesn't make much sense.

          I published a hub every day for my first three months here. The hubber score caught up eventually.

          How would I know if an article was automatically moved to a network niche site? I wouldn't want to manually submit one that's already there.
