    Just wanted to show newer Hubbers that it is possible and many people have done it much faster. I accomplished this with 12,125 page impressions for a total of $111.18 I will receive on my check.Much higher rate of eCPM than the norm with a below average click through rate,but I'll take quality clicks over massive traffic that makes mere pennies any day.

    Not all of my earnings were from Hubpages,but the majority were.How did I do it? By spending time learning,learning,learning.

    As you can see I accomplished this with a low number of page views,why? Proper on page SEO and great keyword choices.Am I pleased with these results? Not really I know if I put more effort in that I easily would have much better #'s. I made the majority of this money with on average only 20 Hubs since I started.

    I also have made just under $220.00 on affiliate banners and links.

    Work Smart Not Too Hard,but if you do decide to work a little harder than me you will no doubt do much better!

    I've thought about doing a Hub on this,but really do we need everyone who ever made a Google payout to tell us how they did it?

      Good work, it took me about 6 months to get my first payment. I just reached my 3rd payment yesterday by 5 cents! Oh man, I hope those estimated earnings are right...

      The month of January was weird because I got a lot more clicks than December, but revenue was bad on some days... Hopefully, maybe I earned more that the estimated earnings say, otherwise a 5 cents margin does not make me feel calm lol hmm

        Sounds like you are doing quite well David. Throw down the balancing beam and hope your balance falls down on the right side of the tight rope,lol!

      Some of us don't need it - but plenty do because they just don't get 'it'. One week, three hubs and 'I'm not making any money' (or similar - I'm being a little tongue in cheek) has been thrown out more times than most of us have had hot dinners.

      Why not throw your money making method into the mix. Or at least a motivational 'this is how it worked for me' kinda hub.

      By the way - payout at six months is great - more so with, as you've pointed out - the hubs you have + page views V effort.

        I probably will frogdropping but every time I start one I become disenchanted with the idea quickly and scrap it. Thanks for the post!

      Congrats....There is hope for me yet lol. Mind you I have only been at this 3 months but I am not giving up.  I do get discouraged from time to time but then when I have a good day the hope returns. Hope you do write a hub on this, I will be sure to read it.

        Thanks Susan, yes I too had a lull in the 3-4 month range where I was pretty drained. Guess just like in everything a little burnout is to be expected.

    On a side note, your PPC must be very high.

      BenjaminBposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Yeah David,I guess from what I have read and heard that it's against Googles TOS to tell people those exact numbers. I've got a few Hubs that are out of this world on click through and PPC,just low low low low traffic,lol. That's what my next goal is to raise my traffic to those Hubs performing the best and to continue adding to my 2 websites that have done a little business,but are still relatively new.

        Yeah, you can not talk about google adsense statistics, but can talk about earnings surprisingly.

        My PPC is usually low, if it was higher, I would be making a lot more cause of my traffic.

          Lol I wish. Little chunk from social bookmarking,and 2 websites with a little material on them as well and 1 blog with only 12 posts,but around 70% from my Hubs.

    To add for everyone. So many people have told me I should go ahead and do a Hub about how I made this progress on Hubpages. Look for that masterpiece (Lmao) to be coming to a computer screen near you within about a week I would say. Thanks for all of the well wishes guys and gals!
