    I've been working long and hard to reach the goal of the elusive $1000 per month from HubPages and this November I finally made it big_smile

    $611 amazon & $489 adsense.

    Hopefully with some consistent work I can keep to this level of income once Xmas has passed and supercede it tongue

    I don't think I would have managed this if it weren't for some hubbers who freely share their huge amounts of knowledge about earning online such as sunforged, Misha, Mark Knowles, Peter Hoggan & thisisoli. The unwavering support of Frogdropping has helped immensely too, as have all the other friendly people in this community. So thank you smile Oh yeah, I better say thanks to HubPages too tongue

    Right speech over - who's getting the beers in?! lol

    Can I ask... is this your only account or do you have other hubs? Just curious as to the amount of hubs it took to reach that amount.

    Thanks Wry smile I have one other account that has one hub in it. Unfortunately it gets zero traffic tongue

    1. WryLilt profile image90
      WryLiltposted 12 years agoin reply to this

      Wow. So that's an average of just under $10 per hub for the month. Impressive!

      Makes my $192 for the month from about 280 hubs look bad!

      1. Susana S profile image92
        Susana Sposted 12 years agoin reply to this

        We just take different approaches. When I learn something new I go back and edit my old hubs to incorporate the new info - I've done this numerous times. I just try to make sure that each hub is working as hard as possible smile

          WryLiltposted 12 years agoin reply to this

          I must admit I took Marisa Wright's advice to heart - don't bother working on the ones that are failing, work on making the ones that are going well, better. I usually chalk the others up to learning. Although 75% of my hubs don't have any keyword research, I've come across better (IMO) ways to get traffic.

            The cool thing is that a hub can stew for months, and suddenly, out of the blue, get a hit and convert to a sale.  That happened on one I'd given up on this week!

    smile glad to have helped - but you know what really helped me? .. a book you recommended called something like "writing web copy that sells" -(find it on a Susana S hub for review and her aff link)  - really pumped up my conversion rates.

    I just got back from a week long  visit the family and thanksgiving vacation...and in general I have the next 4 months worth of hubs/posts/sites planned, yet only 3 months to write them in ....if Im here, then Im not working on them! But this thread was worth coming out of lurk mode for smile

I can tell from my short time here that you work hard and it seems to me you work smart. I can't follow all of your ideas yet but I hope to get there and follow in your footsteps.
