    About $4 short..... fingers crossed for this month!

    Although I won't divulge too much, as I have a big hub on the topic coming up, thats more than 40% higher than February....

    Another assualt coming soon.... my target is $1000 by September!

      Conratulations, Ryan! How do you do it? What do your "assaults" consist of? I just got my first payout yesterday, but today traffic is dragging.

        Hello Aya Katz..... I have been getting so many emails from people asking about my traffic, backlinking, tagging, etc etc etc.... since I have been quite vocal in the past about these things...

        I have decided to lay bare many of the things that I do, have learnt, and give an insight into my month by month earnings on 1st July...

        In that hub I will link to some hubs by some of the best hubbers, these are the hubs that I learnt almost everything from. I cant think of any other way really, I'm going to try and answer every single frequent question in that hub....

        I know its a while away, but with a full time job now (previously unemployed or temping), thats the only way I can make it work...

        I will of course let everybody know when its finished.

        In addition, Darkside has made noises about pooling together a few good hubbers and getting a bit of an advice session going on, where we take a few hubs from beginners and give them as much advise on keywords, tagging, etc etc.... I have been asked to get involved with that, and I think it will help a lot of people.... will keep you posted on that.

      Many thanks.... a while away from the real heavyweights, but that in itself is enough to spur me on for greatness!

          Thanks Mark. The best thing is that I know I could add another 50% - 100% without publishing another hub.... I won't do that though, I will just ensure that the next lot are great ones wink

        Me too. Time you got a t-shirt with me printed on the front big_smile

        And I noticed a hubber asking how ryan does it. Hard work, optimized hubs, backlinks and a spoonful or two of luck. Sometimes, no matter how much work you put into a hub, it just doesn't work.

        Anyway, ryan deserves to reap the rewards for effort. Top of the class and all that smile

          Yep! Luck is a huge factor..... I am much better now at trying to create my own luck, but I must have 20 or 30 excellent hubs which struggle to take 10 page views a month...

          I have found a great way to work is to write 3 or 4 hubs on a specific topic, link them all together, and then cross my fingers. Each hub targets different keyword phrases, particularly in the title and URL..... 1 might become a decent earner, 1 might do 'ok' occassionally, and 2 might be a waste of time....

          Its like playing a free lottery... the more free lottery tickets you get, the more chance of hitting the jackpot. I dont underestimate things like tagging though....

          I was going to disclose my highest earner too.... decided against that... although it was a COMPLETE fluke.... I wrote it for fun!!!

    I'm so proud of your Ryan. This is a real accomplishment. Bet you get to $1,000 way before September.

      Many thanks Nelle! I actually told you that I was expecting to earn $420 this month a few weeks ago.... and also said that my estimates always seem negative and way too conservative.... so it was nice to see an extra $76 on top of that guess!

      Will let you know when the first $1000 month comes along!
