So now I can see the light. just repeat what I did and write 37 more hubs and I will make 2 more cents right? But the first set of hubs will again make 2 cents also so I will then have 6 cents! Yes! I can see my income growing exponentially from here on out.
What a thrill!
Okay so its not a major earth shattering thing except I earned something by writing and not sitting in front of the TV. Its still cool.
On another note, my daughter said one of my latest hubs is too long. 4215 words. It is about choosing fishing lines and I just felt it took that many words to very briefly cover the subject. Is that too many? Does google or adsense want smaller articles to lead a person to other information or do they want detailed informative articles? I am a bit confused here.
How many page views do you have if you don't mind me asking?
Congrats! The first penny (or two) is always the most exciting.
As for your 4200 word article, that is quite long. It has been proven that longer hubs tend to rank better, but 4200 can definitely be broken up into 3 hubs for a 3 part series.
Try to research a popular keyword phrase for each new hub and link them together. The more hubs you have, the more chance you'll be found in search engines. Always, always, always link relevant hubs together as it REALLY helps increase earnings. (Readers stick around longer which means there is a higher chance of getting clicks)
Just you wait-- it only gets better. Glad you are enjoying the experience.
Thats a couple times I have been advised to link similar hubs. My daughter came by tonight and showed me what to do so that is one of my projects. The 4200 words is about fishing lines but I could break it up fairly easily. Just wonder if it would rank lower by breaking it up.
congrats! i remember that moment when i made my first penny! and i still have a ways to go before my first pay check!!! keep up the great work!!! WOOHOO!
Congratulations! I know how it feels.Kudos to my 89 cents too!!
No other amount you earn online will feel as good as that first 6c! Congratulations.
Congratulations! I am really new around here, just started this week but posting my first hub was a real thrill.Can't wait to see if I can match your earnings!!
It often takes a few months before the traffic picks up, if you search on the forums you will find that 6 months is the marker that most people see the traffic come in.
I have a hub which is nearly 8000 words, so I wouldn't worry too much, however the Google Bot does have a cut off point which can make writing content past a certain point rather frivolous. To be honest though breaking up the article is entirely up to you, if you are happy with the article then leave it!

It's nothing to brag about I know. But I always like to track any income to see if something is working.I got active about 9 days ago and have tried hard to build 10 decent hubs. I've monetized them with Amazon, Ebay and Adsense. Today I was checking and found I've made my first whopping 13 cents...

Sorry, pals, but I am psyched!! This is my biggest day yet. I just checked my earnings for the day, and I had to look at it several times before it sank in!!

I'm happy to report that I reached this milestone! It was not a click, but rather a few extra cents made from impressions that pushed me over the barrier. So maybe I won't complain about pennies made from impressions in the future.This is a nice feeling!

I honestly can't believe it. But I've checked my spreadsheet half a dozen times. Yes, I just hit the $1,000 threshold for November. (There could be an Amazon return or two tommorrow which will ruin the fun, but for now I'm enjoying the digits.)I'm only running, Amazon, Ebay, and Adsense on hubs...
