    I'm happy to report that I reached this milestone!  It was not a click, but rather a few extra cents made from impressions that pushed me over the barrier.  So maybe I won't complain about pennies made from impressions in the future.
    This is a nice feeling!

      Congrats to you. All the best to get your second payout very quickly. In the forum i heard that first few month is very tough time.

      So how about you for the first 6 months ( earnings)

        I did not sign up for Adsense until I'd been a member here for 6 weeks.

        However, I only made around $16.50 up through April 2010.  This just shows you what the potential can be after the first 6 months.  Some hubbers will do much better than this.

        I know you haven't been here for very long, and thus, I hope this report is encouraging for you in the long view.

    Pennies add up.  Dollars add up faster, but pennies still get there smile

    I'll bet that made you smile. First the pennies then the dollars and who knows what the future holds.
    Congratulations on reaching that milestone.

    Congratulations, gracenotes! The first payout feels like you just climbed to the top of Mt. Everest or something like that, doesn't it? Hehe. smile

    Congrats, Gracenotes!  I, too, just made my first payout - we'll have to celebrate together - I'll even bring the champagne!  It's a great feeling, isn't it?

      Yeah, I'm aware, Wilderness that you made the payout in about 6 months.  That's half the time that I took getting there.  What a nice record!

        Well, it helps just a little to be laid off from work.  That not only provides time, but a not so gentle push to get it done!

    You are doing great, Gracenotes and Wilderness.

    I made my first payout at about 18 months (Knowing and caring nothing about keywords and backlinks, etc.).
    I just made my third payout-- also without doing those aforementioned things much.

    I have paid attention to the keyword searches on my extant hubs and have done some changes to titles and tags, improved some with photo capsules, and done other minor tweaks, as well as keeping a few comments, answers and forum posts going.
    I didn't get into this expecting earnings-- but it's kind of the sorcerer's apprentice kind of thing. Once it gets rolling, it keeps on moving up.

    October was by far my best earning month with Google and also by Amazon. I have not been doing any real targeting of markets SEO or nothing.... I do have time in my favor, as I am at about 2.5 years. I would NOT be surprised to reach another payout level by the end of this month.
    (I probably should go finish a few half-finished hubs. smile )

    SO hang in there.. Maturity and old age wins.

      wildernessposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Well, yes, Rochelle!  By all means, finish the hubs - it's hard to earn anything if it's only half done and not published.  Get cracking, girl! smile

        Hey, now! No pushing here... I'm a ponderer, and perfectly satisfied to be the tortise in the race. "SLow and steady..."

    Well done!

    So what is the minimum Adsense will pay out?

    1. Rochelle Frank profile image96
      Rochelle Frankposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      In USA you have to reach $100-- and wait 'till the following month. In UK, Aussie land and other places it is different-- check your Adsense page.

    Good for you guys!  The first payout gives one a boost and the reality of knowing it can be done!  A nice incentive to keep writing!
