    Here are my 459454 questions. I'm a hubpages noob.

    Why am I getting next to no traffic?

    Is it because I have only been on the site for three days?

    And is my profile score of 67 good for three days?

    My articles are for pretty much everyone on earth

    I just published one about optimizing computer performance and that targets anybody on the internet...

    Why do I only have 50 views on my 8 hubs?

    And why do their scores seem to rise and fall in a seemingly random manner?

    Why is my score going up? Who decided it would go up all of a sudden?

    How do I actually generate income from all of this? I love writing but I also love getting paid for it!

    Thanks to anyone who gives me any kind of information I can use!

      T I M E !
      It takes time.  It can take four to eight months to work up enough presence to generate an income.  Feel blessed you have fifty views.  Get accepted with Kontera and Amazon.  That would be a good start.

      Good luck!  smile  Welcome to HubPages

      You have just started, it takes time and work to gain more traffic, also, the subjects you are writing about are very competitive, so you have to build better websites than more competition.

      And why do their scores seem to rise and fall in a seemingly random manner?

      Hub scores are based on a lot of different factors, don't worry about them too much.

      Why is my score going up? Who decided it would go up all of a sudden? votes, traffic, content, and more, from what I understand!

      How do I actually generate income from all of this? I love writing but I also love getting paid for it!

      Sign up with the advertiser programs, Google Adsense, Amazon, eBay, and Kontera, you will earn through these.

      Thanks to anyone who gives me any kind of information I can use!

    If four months is the standard, I'm going for a month before I get decent traffic. bump
