    I'm happy because after putting in some effort over the last 30 days or so, it's starting to pay off. My traffic is up, and I've been getting more from google and yahoo search. The only thing that hasn't followed is my adsense earnings. I've gotten about 4 clicks since I started hubbing. I'm encouraged by my traffic, and hoping that If I stay consistent, I'll see my first pay out from adsense in 3-4 months. Am I being realistic?

    Also, after checking my adsense account, I'm encouraged by the fact that my impressions for the entire month of May match my impressions for the first 10 days of June.

      Time is key, great that there more vistors, but not all will click on ads, not even half, so keep it up with the vistors, and wait.

        I don't think you're being realistic sorry - I'm at nearly 5 months and $20 with adsense and 75 hubs...
        The good news? It can increase exponentially - first month 10c, second 50c, third $3, and May over $12...
        May hubbers say it takes about 9 months to get a first payout and it gets easier from there.
        However it's the US summer so hits will be down for awhile. Just keep writing and you'll get there!

    Ive had over 300 clicks and over 40,000 page impression in nearly 7 months, but I have nearly 100 hubs, bookmarking and keywords is what you need to concentrate on at the moment

    Yeah Richieb799 I have been focusing on bookmarking and getting links going to my hubs. Each time I publish a hub I go through and submit to about 10-15 bookmarking sites and I try to look for ways to ad links to my old hubs.

    I'm starting to get a small increase in traffic from google now. Lately I've also been using google's keyword tool to get an idea of what to write about, and what words to use in my hubs.

    Perhaps I am being unrealistic. But Like you said Lara's Mama, it's exponential. I feel that if I can keep the pace up, things will start to pick up quickly but payment may still be far off.

    Any other tips?
