    Hi Eileen,

    Congrats Eileen!   We're obviously progressing at about the same rate as I finally got to the $100 mark in June!   

    Have you looked at how much you earned for the last couple of months?  When I look at it, the only reason it's taken so long to get to $100 is that the first few months I earned pretty much zilch.  But I earned nearly $20 in May and over $25 in June, so I'm expecting the next $100 cheque a lot quicker.  Hope you're the same!

  14. Lissie profile image80
    Lissieposted 9 years ago

    Well done Eileen :I hope you are going 2 keep writing on your big trip! Marisa is quite right: it took me until March to get my first check: 13 months! I just qualified for my next one! So look at your last few months earnings and multiple it out - you will be pleasently surprised!

    Now nice as a check would be make sure you have adsense setup to pay you  direct to your bankaccount: they have to confirm the bank account first so do that now while you are waiting for the end of the month.  That way your money will appear soon after the 20th - not weeks and weeks after when u try to connect with your check!

  15. Eileen Hughes profile image86
    Eileen Hughesposted 9 years ago

    Thanks everyone for that.  Somewhere I thought I saw that they only pay to Australia by check.  Maybe it was another program.  Because I just went in again and I have got banks details inthere but it is still sitting unverified.  Weird.  I tried to redo but just stayed unverified.

    any ideas.   Thanks again

  16. Lissie profile image80
    Lissieposted 9 years ago

    Eileen - my account is in New Zealand but I suspect Australia is the same! Adsense needs to verify your bank account is yours.  You give Adsense the account details via the My Account tab. They deposit a few cents into the account  which have a reference code next to it.  You log back into Adsense and confirm the code - then the account is verified ! You can do this now while waiting for payment
    Hope that helps!
    Oh and its paypal that only allows US accounts to be linked !

    Thanks again,  yes I did do that Lizzie.  but nothing put in my bank ,  I went back three months just to make sure because didnt remember when I did it.  so have sent them a query email asking why not.

    They should get back to me.  Thanks everyone  waiting to get it now.mmmm

  18. Marisa Wright profile image99
    Marisa Wrightposted 9 years ago

    Eileen, I think if you change your options it may only take effect from your NEXT payout.  So if you didn't change the option before you got to the $100, it may be too late.  Don't quote me, though. I just know that's the way it works on some other sites - eBay,for instance.

  19. Lissie profile image80
    Lissieposted 9 years ago

    You have until the 15th of the month that payment is due: I think Eileen said her $100 came up early July so payment is not due until 20th Aug: she has until 15Aug to sort this one out!

  20. Marisa Wright profile image99
    Marisa Wrightposted 9 years ago

    Good to know Lissie - I still think I'll just let the cheque arrive, though.  There's something nice about actually having it in your hand!  And it will be in Aussie dollars so that's OK.

    BTW I've been itching to reply to your comment on my blog about BANS vs phpBay but I can't seem to leave comments right now!

    [Eileen - forgive me if I digress for a minute]

    I upgraded to phpBay because it lets me show products available to Australia, rather than just products listed on eBay Australia, which is an important difference.  Wayne introduced that feature specially for me (after I emailed him to ask whether the software had that feature) so I felt honour bound to buy the thing after that!

  21. Eileen Hughes profile image86
    Eileen Hughesposted 9 years ago

    Thanks all,   I have emailed them and they just reply that I changed it and said they donot reply individually so go in and check all forums for results.  But I did that and it said to .....cant remember exact now but did all that and said changed.
    But I still have an unverified thing.  so will wait and see yes I think I do have till the 15thso will see if anything alters before that date.  Thanks again.

    Gosh I really appreciate the notes from everyone indicating how long it took them to get their first $100 check from AdSense.

    1. profile image0
      Ronald Daniarposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      My 100$ is after 17 months with 20 hubs and HubScore above 90. Visitors on all hubs are about 100 perday. So, it's about 5 $ per month with 100 visitors everyday.

      Well, it's not like that anyway. It's hard to make the formula. Adsense is about advertising and it does not depends solely on how many clicks you got, but also how many $ the advertisers put on their advertisement.

      To my surprise, I earn 60 $ last month from HP. But when I checked my GA account, 37 $ is not coming from hubs, but my referral hubs. Between sad and happy.....sad because my hubs are not really productive. This month, I hope it happens again...While last 2 months, my earning was only less than 20$.

      But I won't take my $100 first because my bank here will cost me for 30$ for issuing the cheque. No Paypal. Hics...

      1. thranax profile image47
        thranaxposted 9 years agoin reply to this

        As you make more Hubs and spend more time getting more views, and getting views that actually have people who read and click on things will make you more. I like to look at it like a game of luck, because most people don't click on ads no matter how good they are...unless you make them yourself on your own site smile.

    The hardest thing for me was making that first $100 in a month. Now I would be incredibly disappointed if that was all I made in a month. At this point, my goal is to earn $500 in month solely with Adsense (from other sites). I have come close and I certainly measure my Adsense money  in the hundreds, but still not there. smile

    However, I am hopeful. Always hopeful. This is one of the reasons why I am now on Hubpages. In addition to wanting to share information, I think it can help me in that endeavour.

    That's great! I've been here a little over 4 months and am about 1/4 of the way there. I  have seen a gradual increase in the last few weeks. Now if I could only add my $0.14 from Kontera wink I'd be over the hump. Keep us posted.

    Whoot!  Congratulations on your accomplishment!  How did you go about reaching that number?  smile

  30. Marisa Wright profile image99
    Marisa Wrightposted 9 years ago

    Pagan, Eileen and I seem to be progressing at about the same pace. I can tell you that I got to the "magic number" by writing 67 Hubs, (then going back and improving and tweaking them as I learned more about how to write good ones), and having patience!   

    I probably could have got there quicker if I had done all the stuff I'm supposed to do, like promoting my Hubs and optimizing for search engines.

    1. tcnixon profile image67
      tcnixonposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      The magic number, in this case, was hitting $100 in one month. If you do so, it generates a check. When folks are first starting out it takes more than one month to hit that amount. Sometimes, it takes quite a few months. smile

    I can hear you all laughing  Yes it took me 9 months to make that Mighty $100.  so how much a day or week does that work out.  Oh boy what an income.

    But hey I am laughing because I have finally made $105.00 now.  Thanks

      It took me for more than a year! Well, I only published around 5 hubs in that year. What can I say?
