    Hi. I have posted five hubs, and they are rated pretty well.  Yet, I have not even earned ONE PENNY!  Could someone please make some suggestions or help me out here?  Thank you.

      Hi EMartin!

      I reviewed one of your Hubs here:

      http://hubpages.com/hub/How-to-get-in-s … t-of-money

      So just off the cuff, here’s what I would do:

      1.)    Add titles to your text capsules and break up that one lengthy text into multiple ones.
      2.)    Add more tags that are relevant to your Hub. I usually go for between 20-40.
      3.)    Use a variety of capsules – have it go something like this: Text w/Amazon aligned next to it, text w/eBay aligned next to it, YouTube video, text w/Amazon aligned next to it.
      4.)    Don’t limit yourself to adsense and amazon/ebay revenue. Have you looked on ClickBank or PayDotCom for information eBooks to promote? When you promote an Amazon book, you’re looking at maybe cents or a dollar’s worth of commission, while an eBook offers $20-90 in commission. Worth a shot and this niche has tons of them.
      5.)    Send traffic to your Hub to get the Google traffic flowing – use bookmarking at Stumbleupon, del.icio.us, digg, and Technorati for started. Twitter about it. Maybe write an article for EzineArticles and once it gets going, your monetization should soar a bit.

      Good luck!

    Your experience is normal.  I earned nothing for the first three months, and I had 40 Hubs up in quick time.

    Then suddenly, one month I earned $10, and my monthly income increases each month.  I'm not going to make a fortune because I'm not out there promoting my work enough, and I'm not writing on "hot topics", but I enjoy it and the money is a nice bonus.

    If you want to earn money by writing on the internet, it isn't a question of just writing.  In fact, as Misha will tell you, writing is probably the smallest part of what you have to do.  You have to learn about optimising your articles for search engines - using keywords without keyword stuffing, and so on.  You have to learn about internet marketing, promoting your Hubs out there on the internet so they get noticed. And you have to have some patience!

    It depends on where you get the traffic (quality) and how much (quantity).
