    I had 311 hits so far in my hubs and so far I won $ 0.00 on google adsense. Is this normal or am I unlucky? I wonder what is the average click through rate on its hubs in relation to clicks on adsense.

      normal - the first hits are normally from hubpages who don't click - then the ads probably don't match your stuff very well - then one magical day for no appaarent reason clicks start showing up.  I don't have any idea how it really works but I had a thousand hits in total before one click - then clicks started - it's a mystery big_smile

    It's normal. Don't worry. Don't stop now, just keep on writing. When those hubs mature and get picked up by search engines you should start to see more traffic. Once you see what hubs are getting traffic you can figure out what you did right and what you did wrong. From there you can edit your hubs and fix them and thus increase your traffic even more.

    It is normal, some times you can have up to 1000 hits and still no click. Make sure to check the hub regularly and see if it brings out the correct ad for the content you have written. Just keep writing more hubs and give your visitors a reason to visit other hubs you have written. Good luck

        Once you start getting clicks you may then see which type of info or hub does the best.  You then know how to use this knowledge to write new hubs with a better chance of getting those clicks.

        The same goes for Amazon clicks.  If it was easy, everyone would make millions!

    It is normal - I wrote a hub on my first few months you might look at for some encouragement.

    In addition, the first few weeks produce mostly visits from hubbers (check your "traffic" in "my account" and hubbers don't click much.  As organic traffic increases you should begin to see the normal 1-3% click through rate for HubPages.

    Hang in there - it will improve with time.  And whatever, you do, don't stop writing.  You will wish you hadn't when the traffic and clicks come through for you.

    Keep making hubs with the right keywords and content and money will be the last thing to worry about.

    Good luck!

    This is normal. You will get clicks once your hub started to get regular search engine traffic. Keep writing and you will get your first click very sooner. All the best.
