Starting to see Adsense revenue

    I just wanted to come here and give a little encouragement to those, like myself, who are new to Hubpages.

    I have been here a little over three weeks now and published 14 Hubs. I don't want to jinx myself, but for the past week I have been seeing consistent Adsense revenue, and according to Google Analytics, about 85% of my traffic is coming from the search engines which should be a good thing. So if you haven't seen any revenue yet, keep plugging and research those keywords!

    I haven't really gotten many comments on the hubs and haven't attracted any followers yet, but have been told by several here that it is not crucial to making money here. I also haven't gotten too many Amazon clicks, but have made two small sales. I guess I need to look at how to improve my Amazon revenue.

    Anyway, just wanted to let you guys know that it appears that Adsense is starting to roll!!

    Welcome to HP, from your first fan. You'll do very well here. Your extensive content writing experience is evident. I predict a very rapid first payout for you. March would not surprise me at all!

      Thanks Nelle! Those are some very encouraging words. Thanks for being my first fan, too!  I am really enjoying it here and have learned a lot from these forums and experienced members like you. Thanks for replying and have a great evening!

    That's great!  I think a lot of people get discouraged and give up really easily when they don't see the revenue coming in...it started off pretty slowly for me but it's been growing steadily in the last few weeks.  As for Amazon, I haven't made any sales here yet, but I'm ever hopeful.  Congrats and keep up the good work! :-)

      Thanks SweetMarie! Yeah, my Amazon sales amounted to a commission of just over a dollar, but hey, it's a start! I want to do some more research on how to make Amazon more effective.

      Have Fun and Keep Writing!

    i am off to read your 14 hubs, beginning from now, may be one after the other. i am amazed at your handling of words as you post your thread...keep it up and by the way, WELCOME TO Hubpages, where everyone is earning, including the most amateur writers like....MYSELF...lol...good news to also hear that you have already made a sale on Amazon, when i am yet to get a single sale since last decade i joined HP...anyway, i am so happy for you. More success!

      Thanks for the welcome accofranco! My Amazon commission wasn't very big, but it does provide hope in that area. I wish you the best with your success and I will be checking out your hubs as well!

    Right on! I've got 12 Hubs up, but my earnings have been dismal. To hear you're starting to see some consistent revenue is encouraging. Congratulations and keep it up.

    Thanks everyone, I just finished my 15th hub and I hope to get 30 by the end of the month. It's gonna be close but hopefully....

    Congrats GAbaptist! smile I am new as well and am trying to reach the 30 hubs in 30 days mark. It is a little hard, but I'm not losing hope, haha.

    Looks like you're doing wonderful!

    Congratulations! 85% organic traffic is a great achievement, and you will get the followers and comments as time progresses. I've only been here a little longer than you have been, and I just made my first Amazon sale yesterday. It is a great feeling!

    Good luck and keep writing excellent articles - I love hearing success stories, because it keeps me motivated!

    Welcome to HP.  I know I'm posting a day late here, but quite inspirational.  Best of luck !

    Congratulations!  That's really great!  I didn't start earning from Adsense and Amazon until my second month.  It was so thrilling to watch a few cents grow to a dollar etc on Adsense and my first sale at Amazon was only 40 cents but I was so thrilled I announced it here in forums as well.  Best wishes!

    Congrats!! That's amazing. I've been here for about a month, very little adsense revenue, no amazon and only 9 hubs. Time is something I lack, and trying to figure out this whole keyword thing, which is most important LOL! But wow what an inspiration!! Good for you, keep up the great work! An inspiration to all!

    Wow!  That is great - it took me over 2 months before I started seeing revenue and I am familiar with SEO, etc....  Congrats on your Amazon, too!  I have yet to see ANY sales from Amszon...

    Congratulations! If you will stay focused and continue to write good quality hubs, your money will continue to grow. There is a lot of helpful info from experienced Hubbers on how to write for Amazon. You can find most of the advice in the forum area and it can really help! Good job!
