    But I would like your input.

    I have been here 5 mo and I've made about $13 and change w/ google.

    I know you may think I'm impatient, but how long will it be until I make checks ? And how often will they come? (I know you can't answer that for sure )

    I'm just wanting to make $ , I hope soon or by a year.

    How does it work?

    Also, thankyou for answering and I must keep reminding myself that hubs grow in TIME.......

    And I need to backlink more. Reddit seems to work best when I check my traffic sources.......smile

      From the informal surveys I've conducted, it takes a lot of people 9 month to a year and a half to make their first payout.

      With so many low-paying subjects, it's going to be an uphill battle.  The first three listed don't pay well at all as there's so much material on the web on those same topics already.

    A lot of your hubs seem to be about poetry or mental health,unfortunatly for you these wont get an awful lot of clicks through google adsense,and aside from poetry books i dont see what you could sell through ebay or amazon,they are good hubs just think you should find a different niche if you want to earn good.smile

      I don't understand why I can't earn money thru these...........won't people buy self help books on the mental health one?

      What types of hubs, exactly ,earn money? I'm confused sad
      Do I have to write about selling stuff- like about products and ipods?

      I really prefer to write what comes to me naturally........

        Just write what you like if you don't want to sell stuff. I don't write about anything at all and, after a year or so, the checks started coming.  Just be yourself (even if I do argue with you sometimes) smile.

          so, if I continue as i am, I will start getting checks after a year or so? There's hope smile Will I make $300 a month or more eventually?

          Ok, I'll be myself........smile

    Maybe do some research on what topics work well or do some product hubs with Amazon ads. I've been here 10 months and slowly making $ but it really does take time.

    Also, go back to existing hubs that aren't doing too well and see what you can improve like adding RSS feeds, add new tags, add news capsules. Any change refreshes the hub with google.

    Good luck and enjoy hubbing smile

    warchild75 and MPG Narratives both give great advice.  The more lucrative subjects to write on include Personal Finance, Business,

    I'd like to pitch in by recommending the Learning Center for resources on writing successful, lucrative hubs: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/

    And as you'll see below, some topics are more lucrative to write on, on average, than others:

    Are your hubs being read SGFR? How much traffic are they generating, are they written for adsense or amazon? You need to write differntly according to both the affiliate and your target audience.

    How's the SEO side of things. It's relatively easy to naturally add SEO, you don't need to know every last trick to produce top quality SE loved content but - a little tweaking can make a difference.

    Are you linking hubs together? Writing several hubs in a related field? Celebrity hubs, movie reviews - not hugely productive. Aim instead to answer questions, provide advice, offer what it is your reader is looking for.

    As an example - if it's dating advice, forget the personal stuff. Better you avoid 'well when I joined this great online dating site a year ago, I found that dating services weren't quite as I thought ... ' and instead write 'If you're about to join an online dating site, there are some aspects about online dating that you should consider, in order to enjoy the better aspects that using a dating service can offer ...' - you see?

    That off the top of my head BTW - I haven't looked at any of your hubs.

    As I've been told more than once - if you want an income that you can live off, then write like it's a business. Hobby writing gives hobby money.

    As for how long? Someone that hits the ground running and knows what they're doing could see payout in a few months, of that I've no doubt. People like you and me? Anywhere between 9 and 12 months I reckon.

      Hi, frogdropping, I really appreciate your input/help.
      I know very little about SEO-it's really confusing to me.
      So far my 92 hubs generated 7952 views about-I'm not sure if I should keep using the keyword tool or not.........I got more views when I did.
      (all so confusing!)sad
      ttys, gotta do errands.

      1. frogdropping profile image84
        frogdroppingposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        SGFR - if you want to up your income, then you have to write about 'stuff'. Simple as that. The thing is, it doesn't have to be topics you know nothing about. Have a think on what you know, like, enjoy, do or have done in the past.

        If you don't get SEO, then fine, it's not the world's end. It certainly helps but you will see some return eventually. If you want to learn more about it then I suggest you turn to the learning center - it's there for a reason: http://learningcenter.hubpages.com/

        It's been well written, it's easy to follow and well worth spending time absorbing.

          hey frog-
          I did go thru the entire learning center, I think I know seo- search engine optimization but waht does it stand for?
          (that's the part that confused me)

            SEO is basically occasional adding keywords and titles that you know people will search in the search engines.

            By the way, it took me 10 months before I got to my first Adsense payout and I earn no where near $300 a month. It's closer to $100 every 2 months or so.

                As others have said, it depends on whether or not people are interested in your topics. And, if they click on your ads.
