HubPages has been good to me. Although it hasn't been nearly a year here yet, I made payout some months ago and haven't seen a clickless day since October. The holiday season was very good with super Amazon earnings.
January, though, has been dismal. Not unexpected; the old timers predicted it and it makes sense. Traffic is still down some and my CTR hasn't been this low for months.
I bet myself that if I was to see a clickless day this would be the month, and today would likely be the day. But I finally did get one click......For $0.00. What a time to get a public service ad!
The question is, did I win my bet or not? One click, but it paid nothing!
You win wilderness.
You're a cup half full kind of person so you won because - why - well because someone read your article and decided to find more information. That HAS to be a win.
I think you're right - if nothing else I got a good laugh from it.
I just found it knee-slapping funny, looking every little bit while writing a new hub for that one click to maintain my record and finally getting it, only to see it paid nothing! Guess maybe I have a sick sense of humor sometimes.
I'm really hoping things do pick up as we near the end of Jan. I picked the worst possible time to start here on Hubpages, late Decemeber. I am doing reasonably well compared to what I hear from other about the start, so am looking forward to things improving!

I know we are all here to make some money, but having 10 ads on a page slows down loading time to such an extent that readers just don't have the patience to wait for a page to load. So they click away without...

Tiger has announced he will return to golf at the Masters and to be honest I don't want him to win. I would prefer a Mickelson victory...although if he's in contention it will be exciting!
