I've been on here eight months now -- but I was away awhile. However, I did read thousands of forum posts the first four or five months. I tried to follow instructions on google's pages and adsense screens plus I got information from many, many good posts some of you have put up. But in eight months I have only made $4.00 in adsense. I know I said this many months ago, but here it is again. I think I've done something incorrectly in my initial set up of things. I think it might be due to the channels or something. Maybe I wasn't supposed to set up channels and name them? Does anyone know how I can start over or what I might have done wrong? If I'd even have made $20.00 by now, I'd think I just haven't used enough word research....which I haven't, but still I think $4.00 is awfully low and perhaps I'm doing something incorrectly. Thanks for reading this.
To earn well with adsense it mostly comes down to traffic. To earn consistently you'll need at the very least a few hundred views per day - ideally you want to reach several thousands per day. This is because an average click through rate is only about 2%.
If your adsense account is recording clicks and page views then it's probably set up ok. Also double check that you are looking at your all time earnings in your adsense account.
You need to write a lot more than 20 hubs. Earning money online is hard work, you need to write a lot to start beating the competition.
Given the small pool of Hubs that you have, and the non-retail focus of their subjects, I don't think your earnings are unusually low.
If you want your Hubs to earn, you have to create them that way.
I'm going to politely disagree with Susana S with regards to earning. Traffic, in my opinion takes a backseat to highly targeted, highly converting topics with high CPC ratings.
I have a number of high traffic hubs that earn a tenth of what some of my 10-20 views a day niche hubs do. In terms of earnings I'd focus on subjects where Adword bidding competition, and search engine traffic is high but where competition is relatively low.
Traffic is fluffy, but a single click on a high-paying keyword will be worth up to 20 times what most generic, non-retail topics can hope for.

I was wondering if people can live on their earnings from Adsense...or is it mostly a hobby based earning?

My CTR is sharply down for April. I've only had 2 clicks on over 800 views. Worse still these are both referral Hubs rather than my own and were only worth a few cents.Up to now my CTR has been around 2%. Is this just me or are others seeing a drop in earnings? The trouble...

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with 58 hubs written. Does anyone else find the CTR quite poor for hubpages, or is...

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

Today is really exciting, Adsense just reached $15.51 for today! (with 4 hours or so left in the adsense day) Highest so far has been $10 and some change. A great majority of the $15 came from one click (truly shocking amount), so today is definitely a 'fluke'. Over the last few days, my earnings...
