I am very new. I have 7 hubs. I have put all 7 hubs in as active channels. Google adsense results are zero dollars.
I realize that patience and persistence is key but how do I make sure that everything is set up right to eventually make a profit?
Sinea, for most hubbers, it takes months before you'll see any income worth seeing. Your patience will be tested (as is mine, at times!), but hang in there. Under "earnings," double check that Adsense is "active" and you're good to go.
Ask yourself the following questions: if you were a visitor to your own Hubs instead of the author, why would you find them useful and/or helpful? What are they offering that you need? Is there any reason you would buy anything off of them?
If those questions don't have good answers, especially that last one, earnings are going to be very hard to come by.
I've been conducting an informal poll about earnings on HubPages for a few years now. It takes (on average) about 100 Hubs and anywhere from 9 months to two years for most people to get steady earnings that they feel are worthwhile.
You can find several Hubs about the earning with Hubs. Most users need oneyear or longer to receive only $ 50. But many users who have an account for several years are earning every month some money.
Just think that you at the beginning have not many followers nor a high score. As consequence not many people will read toyour hubs nor link to it.
In addition also think about the fact that old hubs also receive a lot of traffic from backlinks as well search engines. If you want to earn money then you haveto bring users from outside Hubpage to your articles.
So only writing Hubs is not enough, you also have to do link building and to win followers.
Well and of course the topics that you choose as well the way how you arrange the content has huge impact on the number of readers and the displayed ads.
Hi Sinea Pies - I've been on HubPages since the beginning of January 2011. To date, I've written 66 Hubs. I've been making it a point to write a Hub a day. If I'm not able to, I double-up on another day.
In January, my combined Amazon / Google earnings were under $3.00. Most all of those earnings came in the last few days of January, roughly 25 Hubs written to that point.
To date in February, my combined earnings, split nearly evenly between Amazon and Google, are just under $50.00.
My still very inexperienced advice would be to keep writing as many Hubs as you can, do as much keyword research as you can, and (not to sound like the broken record) write your Hubs to the best of your ability in terms of content.
I've also noticed, despite doing keyword research work, etc. that I can follow the same guidelines that led to a strong Google search engine ranking for one Hub, but fail to repeat that success on another Hub dealing with a similar topic.
Some of this is a mystery. It's definitely more of a mystery to those of us lacking experience, but there still seems to be a lot of unknowns for the successful Hubbers here, too, from what I've read!
I wish you the best of luck!
Thanks for the encouragement. Today I earned my first 48 cents. You'd think it'd been a million dollars, I was so thrilled. Proof of life, I guess.
Anyhow, my schedule doesn't allow for one a day...wish it did...but I can do 3-4, which I will.
Wishing you the best as well.
Keep writing more hubs. Make sure you're using keywords. Oh -- and did I mention write more hubs?
But as shogan advised, you've gotta be patient.
Good luck! MM
I'm in the hundreds every month now. It took 2 months to really get my feet wet.
Amazon is key.
Going one step further, Sinea (I hope I'm not being pushy), take another look at how you're titling some of your hubs. Others can weigh in here, but I think some of your titles are too generic to be picked up very well by Google (for example, "Lesson Plan Ideas for Teachers").
Yes, if your hubs are not performing it is time you try something different.
I had a wide variety of hubs after 1 month, and only a couple did well. I started doing more of what worked, and really started researching keywords. It made all the difference.
That Lesson Plans article was a remake from a rejected article that I did for Ehow. Gratefully, I don't have many rejects from that venue but when we do we can use them for something else. We maintain the copyright.
Can I remove it and retitle it, or is it too late?
This is a good question. I'm new here too.
I don't expect to earn steady income from my hubs at this point. I will try to be patient and just make more hubs. Goodluck to us Sinea
Do everything that the others have said but patience is the key:)
Welcome to HP
Expect to wait a good number of months to receive a payout. This can be around 6 months to a year on average, and in some cases longer depending on the kinds of things you write. Poetry, humour and recipes will take longer, possibly a lot longer, to make money, whereas topics actively searched for on the Internet, such as Why, What, Where, How and Buy, initially titled subjects will earn much faster.
Buy ....... online here
Where can I find......
How do I grow vegetables
What is a Doppelgänger
Many hubbers have written hubs about their early experience earning money with HubPages (I am one of them). Search for some of these hubs and you might a good idea of what to expect in the early months.
Thanks everybody. I feel much better. I was really wondering if I set this up right.
It does say "active" and when I view my articles, the google ads are on the page, so now I will write write write.
I can't get my adsense 'active' .. just says 'not set' .. doesn't matter what I do .. have contacted via the site .. nothing yet .. I'm feeling sad ...awwwww :-(
Gotta say I am not the best one to ask. I had already set up adsense through blogger so I had my code to enter for Hub pages. Perhaps someone else will chime in with some help.
Sinea, I had a chance to read the "Lesson Plans" article. Why don't you retitle it to include what it's really about, friendship writing? Something like "Design Lesson Plans Using Friendship Writing." That's not great, but hopefully, you get my point.
Hi Sinea,am also new to hub but i don't believe that it takes 6months to start earning.Moreover i got my adsense just 2 weeks back.i have started earning already.There are many experts here who will guide you better but what i learnt from my experience is give good titles and your hub should have the keywords in different combinations.Goto google and enter the subject of your hub,google will throw some words which are most searched.It assists you and these can help you with your traffic.Next,a tip from Shailini leave the photos for the next capsule.On the right of your first capsule google displays some ads.Visitors are most likely to click them.Give more tags to your hubs for e.g dogs food diet dogs food habit,dogs food brands if you are talking about dogs food.
I never thought of the position of photo. That makes SO MUCH SENSE! Thank you so much. I am going to edit my articles and move the photos down.
I am so happy for you that you have started earning already. That is just wonderful. This is the most amazing way to enjoy writing, meet good people and earn money, isn't it!
Yipee! Finally! I made .48 cents through Adsense! May sound silly but I am really excited. It works!
Thanks for all of the encouragement, everyone. Truly, I know that Hub Pages is all that and more. Can't wait to write my next Hub.
Congratulations ! More certainly will come, and best of luck on future hubs and future earnings !
I feel a little silly but that 48 cents boosted my morale 100% . Thanks for the encouragement.
Wait until you reach 48 dollars - You'll get there!!
It does take time to begin earning regularly. You will learn what works for you may not work the same for others. The main advice I would give you is to write quality content.
