    I'm stoked because I just realized I passed the payout minimimum - I've almost been here a year and have learned so much (with much more to go). Thanks Hubpages for all the education, and being an outlet for my thoughts.

    I feel like the double traffic came when the hub team installed the suggest link button. I have a hub karma of 95 and keep trying to link to quality hubs. I feel it has made a difference. Thanks for all the help from other hubbers, too.

    Congratulations Elayne!
    I reached my first payout threshold in June and am now only €14 short of my second payout, so its true that they come quicker like they all say!

      Wow, that's reassuring.  I made payout in July - am really looking forward to seeing the sixty-something quid go into my bank account.  (It will pay off two thirds of next month's council tax - whoopie-doo lol)

      Congrats to you and Elayne.

      'Scuse my asking, but how long did it take you to make your first payout, and how many hubs had you written by then?

    Thanks you all for your excitement in my direction. Glad to know the second one won't take as long. I am thinking of concentrating on amazon stuff, but know it won't be nearly as fun, but perhaps more profitable. If I figure how much I made on each hub so far, it would be about 50 cents. Some were put together in about that much time, but some took much longer, so hopefully I can keep learning more tricks to get the traffic and clicks I need.

      In writing your hubs are you using the right keywords ?  Good content and keywords will increase your traffic and get better payoffs.
