    Just wondering if anybody out there make a resolution in regards to HubPages for 2011.

    I would like to -

    1. Have 250 QUALITY hubs (total, lol, not write 250 more).
    2. Have 1 million views.
    3. Make at least $500 through AdSense and\or Amazon earnings. (Remember, I only signed up at the end of September, haha, so that might be pushing it!)

    Might think of more goals... but for now, this is what's on my mind.

      Hi, Good luck! I seem to have taken over a year to get to a 100 hubs! lol but I have had a couple of payouts so that is okay!

        I'm still waiting for that first payout!! I am earning, just no check yet.  I'm hoping 2011 will bring the money wink

          It surprising me that you are still waiting for your first payout. In your other thread you told me that you are approaching 100k views.

          Is that not enough to get your payout? Right now how much are you in short?

            I guess it's not enough...

            I'm only (roughly) three thousand views short of 100K views, but I'm averaging anywhere from 1,000 to up to 2,000 views per day.

            At the rate my hubs are going, I would feel rather confident saying I will reach the $100 mark by the middle of January.

              It is a good sign that you can achieve your second goal. Better earnings will come if you do keyword research.

              Did you regularly make keyword research before publishing hubs?

                I didn't even know what keyword research was when I first started with HP!

                I'm learning more and more each day and trying to get better with that aspect.

      I think you might have to temper your expectations just a little.

      You might have to half or quarter that goal to what is really achievable in one year...

        I see your point, but I like setting high expectations for myself.

        How amazing will it be if I could reach even 2 of my goals!

    For the most part your goals seem reasonable, and I share them.  I hope to average 2 hubs a week for the year, giving me something over 200 total.

    After 7 months I've earned (although not been paid yet) over $400, so $500 for the year seems kind of low.  I expect more.

    I'll not see a million views this year, but that's OK.  A reasonable ECPM (earnings per 1000 views) for HP has been reported to be $2-5, so a million views should net around $3000 and I don't expect that either.  By the end of the year I would hope to see a fairly consistent $300 per month, though.

      I appreciate your insight here, wilderness.

      Best of luck with your success at HP as well.

    I hope you will easily cross your first goal. Second one may also be possible. But I am not sure about your third goal.

    All the goals you are aiming should have been achievable.

    All the best to you.

    edit:

    My goal is to get consistent 500 views per day.

      Thanks for responding, TopUniverse.

      I'll have to keep working towards my third - I know it's a toughie!

      Good luck with your goal.

    Kristen's working it. Unless she gets hit by a bus and dies, or returns to focusing on poetry hubs, Kristen will FAR EXCEED her goals WAY AHEAD of schedule.
