OMG... you guys crack me up so much... it didn't come easy to me, Flightkeeper, I spend a *ton* of time publicizing my hubs, it wasn't until almost year two that I got my first pay-out, after the first one they seem to come more quickly.
Check out my profile page for a link to "She Told Me" ... submit a story there and they've a drop down menu with TONS of other portals you can submit to. This will really help when "bringing the clicks in," guys.
so, shameless self-promotion really does pay off! huh Greek One!
I think I'll try it when I get around to finally finishing my fiction series and create a few more wacky advice hubs and then there's the women who sing the blues etc. etc. Gee. I just don't know where to start.
Not that money is all that important to me! since, like all the rest of you thugs, I just come here to have a good time!
fyi, his peccadillos with Pogo and friends were unheard of, mainly because, well, they were unspeakable! And there were a few offspring who weren't et by the gators, if you'd only just get off your bunghole and bother to search, you'll find their descendants and possibly something to actually entertain us instead of all this thready dribble. so there!
Well Greek One, they do say that creative genius is never recognised in life - so the day on which we are all weeping as we tenderly lay your body into your marble tomb is probably the day that you get 150 clicks and your account earns a $1,000 a day from then on.
So, can you leave me your Adsense earnings in your will and start bunging some Amazon capsules on your hubs?
Aw, come on now... I'm a stay-at-home mom... I've the time to promote myself. If I don't do it, nobody else is going to, right guys? It's not disgusting... it's just, you know, trying to make a go of writing for profit.
I love writing. I like money. When the two can hold hands it makes me wanna whisper sweet nothing's in their delicate ears.
bungholes. can we mention them? still, technically, I don't think bunging is the term required for inserting amazon capsules in there just to give amazon another recognition thingy. Let's not get banned over bunging, eh?
I just happened to check and saw that my HP Adsense is at $103.71 today.
I don't have to wait for a payout as that money is combined with my other sites earnings and is always more than needed, but if this were my only source, I would have just reached it.
It took 8 months. I do little outside promotion except Facebook and Twitter, and do not use keyword research (not that I don't think you should; I'm simply too lazy).
Of course I do have a lot of hubs. Most of them get very little traffic at this point and some (about 10%) have had nothing in the past 30 days. Total overall traffic since I started is still under 40,000 views.
My point is just that I do everything "wrong" and still make a little money. I make the same errors at my main site, though that's both much older and larger, so I make much more.
It is possible to just write and make money. The monthly HP earnings have been steadily increasing, though they are a little flat for January.
Now imagine what someone could do if they wrote well researched hubs on good keyword choices and promoted them well..
On further research - I discover that Pogo & Elmer knew (in the biblical way, of course) several of Pogo's relatives! Therefore, the okefenokee is still full of "material" for you bean counters. If you would only care to just find their stories and leave for awhile, maybe, just MAYBE, y'all won't be so needy and have to come in the forums every morning and whine about you lack of traffic/income/brainpower/willpower and etc.! MAYBE!
Last month, I got 37 clicks with no sales from Amazon. Does anyone have any wisdom about how to increase the conversion rate from Amazon? I mean, they are obviously interested enough in something to click on it, but not enough to buy. I wonder if it's a lot it being January, too.
I just got this email. Is terminating your account normal if you don't have any sales or referrals in 90 days????Hello,Thanks again for joining the Amazon Associates program. We’re reaching out to you because we have not seen sales activity on your account.At the time your application was...
Ok....I am sooooo sick and tired of seeing these complete crap ads everywhere on the internet and now it looks like Hubpages sold out to them!!! Ya know the "I lost a million pounds by obeying this 1 stupid rule"....These 2 ads are a complete scam and are being investigated by the...
Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...
I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...
I've been on Adsense since the 20th and have about 77 hub views (for all 8 of my hubs) and one click-through. Am I headed in the right direction? It's been two days now...what was your first week or so like?I know that some folks say that it takes months for them to see substantial earnings. I'd be...
