Is this normal? I've only written 15 hubs and have only been on this site for about 6 weeks.
Completely normal. Where are the views coming from? When you first publish a hub, most of the views come internally (from other hubpages members.) Members don't click adverts. Your own views of your hubs also count.
Money comes from search engine visits. If you reach 600 search engine visits without even a cent I'd be surprised.
It looks like I only have 30 or so views from search engines. I bet a huge chunk of my views are from myself, too. Thanks for the input, I appreciate it.
Totally normal, sometimes you have less views and have lots of clicks and reasonable amount of money.
How do I make it "sometimes" all the time?!
Patience, it takes time (as I have already said).
I make more per half a day now than I did in my first two months entirely.
Since the money you earn is from real people clicking adverts, there is no way to guarantee it.
Since, really, it is random (within the range of the quality of the traffic) the more views you get, the more chance you have of it evening out.
It's like tossing a normal, unweighted coin. In ten tosses you may get heads 8 times and tails 2 times or vice versa. But the more you toss, the more it should average out.
Sometimes click through ratio and Pay per click is low. Today, I have been having a horrible day. over 1000+ views and no clicks. Some page impression revenue, but not much.
Then other days I might make 7-8 dollars with every 1000 impressions. My daily earnings are all over the board. The only time it was consistent was in December when I earned about the same everyday.
Adsense scares me sometimes, but I am glad I have succeeded in making payments a few times. (made a few hundred bucks on hubpages so far, but missed payment by a few cents in january
You hubs are nowhere near old enough to determine whether they will earn money, it can take 6 months for them to begin earning good money - sometimes they never do.
But somebody taking thousands of search engine visits per day can reasonably expect to make at least $3-$4 per 1000 views from AdSense, and some extra revenue through Amazon.
So true and don't forget Amazon, I make more money from Amazon than I do Google.
Do backlinking strategies help speed up the process? I'm more than fine with waiting 6 months, but if I can speed up the process I will.
$3-$4 per 1000 views sounds about right. Thats normally what I am getting, some times more some times less.
I would not focus on the money aspect. As you will not make enough money to worry about it in the coming weeks. IF you focus hard and study what people who are successful do, you can notice huge improvements in due time.
totally normal, I've written a hub about my progress and my first year anniversary. It's been well worth it; I'm happy with my body of work, I earn a good income from both Google and Amazon. It did take me over six months before I started earning though. BUT, the first six nine months I created only a small amount of hubs.
If your willing to work to build a body of quality work and maintain your hubs with a love of the work you will earn money.
What does maintaining your hub require? Like changing amazon products?
Thanks for the feedback, I'll have to check out your hub on your one year anniversary.
Maintaining a Hub means moderating comments, making sure your Hub content stays up to date, and revising it as you learn more about what makes an effective Hub.
Rather than fretting about the lack of income, spend the next week or two doing research - reading the Learning Centre, Hubs about Hubbing etc.
Seen this time and tine again.
Basically, you are f*d. That is the way it is. However, you can make minimal money from this activity.
