I am so excited!! After reading the posts here I decided to look at my bank account, YES!!! I received my Google Adsense payment!! I knew I had reached my threshold at the end of December but thought I had to wait to be notified...
Now dealing with the bank is going to be another story.... Sometime ago apparently they have changed policies and are now charging a monthly maintenance fee of $5... My earnings could be eaten up quickly with that!!
Might just go with a credit union... Trying to keep my HubPages earnings separate from my regular income, for tax purposes...
My bank hits me with a $16 fee every time I drop below $5,000.00 - even if it was just for an hour or two and the average daily balance is two or three times that! I get so angry when that happens because they make a lot of money when my balance is high (as it often is).
I would switch if all the ACH stuff wasn't such a pain to redo.
Way to go, Susie! You have done very well to earn payout this early. It's a great feeling isn't it? This online thing actually works!
Even better, what everyone says about the second payout is true; it comes faster. I've earned my second payout in December (the check was made yesterday) after earning the first in October at about 5 months.
Sweetsusieg, yeah for you. I was excited because I made .4 today. That is the highest amount I have made in one day, but it has only been 7 weeks. I am now more excited for you. Keep writing those great hubs.
That's great! (: I have yet to earn a thing on here haha, of course I barely started. And sadly it may not last much longer for me, when I start college in the summer and have a job and all that fun stuff to start learning how to deal with! Maybe someday though
That is where the 'residual' part comes in. Make lots of good quality Hubs, that people like to read. The web crawlers will pick them up and you will make income while you are at college! That's the beauty of HubPages, once you get started it keeps working for you!
It will come, it just takes time. I turned it into a 'full time' job, I not only write but also promote my work on facebook, twitter, myspace I have a couple blog sites that I promote my work on also.
Its sort of the same as writing a Novel or book of any sort. You write a hard copy, then comes the hard part, getting people to read it. First you would have to get an agent, then have the agent convince the publishers that it is worthy of being read, then comes the marketing. It might be fun to go on tour of book stores, get people to buy your book, then sign your work... BUT you aren't writing while doing this.
LOL, no not a clue as to what has been paying and what hasn't. I've tired to figure it out and can't seem to do so. I have many Hub's on many different subjects. My 'sales' type Hubs don't seem to do well at all. I just finished one that I thought 'might' have a few $$$ signs in the stats... but no, only 1 $ sign. So I have given up trying to write for the $$$ and just write what I have on my mind and hope it does well.
Oh, I did.. It's kind of confusing though. I does show what has been viewed etc... I thought the $$$ meant the ads that are placed, and if they are good paying ads... Oh well, I think it's supposed to be confusing so we get paid what they want to pay us and we can't complain!
I have noticed a decline in pay from one of what I though was a higher paying Hub. My 1st Mystery dinner hub, I'd get clicks on that when it was googled,, I noticed one particular pay was $1.67 being repeated (not sure which ad etc...) but since the 1st of the year, have been having loads visitors on that Hub yet max is .22 cents... I have thought that was odd...
Thank you, the 5.00 is from my other blog on bloggers. Before I came across the wonderful hubpages I was using blogger with adsense. Now I am kinda doing your idea of writing multiple hubs to see if that will bring a broader revenue of money. I know that people make alot of money using adsense and I would love to see a great turn around. So I guess I will keep tapping the keys on my keyboard and hoping! :-0
That is what I would like to see in my living room wouldn't you? A big stack of money from Adsense,kontera, google and other affiliates!
I just received an email from Paypal saying I had received a payment from Hub Pages. I have been in AdSense for 10 months and finally reached my first payout...happy days! Now, I am looking forward to my next and see if I can make it happen sooner.
Hi,Do I have to do something like request it or will the ad program payment automatically go to my paypal account when I am at the correct earnings threshold? This is my first time making it, so I am not sure if I need to do anything. Thank you. Abby
Just want to share my happiness when I received today my first payout in the HP ad program. My Google Adsense earnings lag way far behind HP ad program. I don't expect to get my earnings in adsense at all. I'm motivated to write more hubs if only I have more time to do so. Thanks Hubpages.
I just received last week my first Google Adsense payout last week May 29, 2009. It took me about ninetenn months to reach my first payout. I started Hubpages first as a writing ministry, most of my hubs are insights from my devotions. They are not much commercial, they are more of religious...
I joined HubPages 3 years ago but my last article was a little over an year ago, so imagine my surprise when I received mail from Paypal a few days ago about my first payment from HubPages!I really love this site and I want to continue writing, but I just can't seem to get the inspiration, and life...
After 9 months on HP, I got that email we all anxiously wait for: I made my first payout and it was sent to Paypal. Woohoo!! Yesss! After a lot of stress, hard work, 43 hubs, and 30,300+ views, I can breathe a sigh of relief. Yes, I have a ways to go but this milestone calls for a celebration....
