    Got a question for you all:

    Does signing up for Google's Adsense worth the money you have to put forth to open up an account? I understand more traffic is a result, and I don't know about you, but I don't have money to just throw around on Adsense.

    So, how do you make money using this site, or is this purely for entertainment sake? Have you made money, and how did you go about it?

    I would be grateful for any suggestions on what you have done, if anything, or advice on getting more traffic to your site.

    As a side note--I have only been a member for three days, and I have a hubscore of 91, is that good? What are hubscores anyway?

    Sorry about all the questions...*curious*

    Thanks in advance for any help

      I have been on hubpages for about two months, and so far I've made about $5 with adsense...just to give you an idea of the earnings.  I don't get as much traffic as some of the big time hubbers though, so I'm sure they make more.  Hope this helps smile

    It costs no money to open an adsense account, so yes, it is worth it big_smile

    Ok, maybe I am confused.

    I had an adsense account on, but in order for my campaign to run, I had to pay so much a day. How do you do it without spending money?

    Sorry, but my brain isn't connecting...*placing toothpicks in the eye to WAKE up*

    You're mistaking Google Adsense for Google Adwords.

    Adwords is an advertising tool you pay money to use.

    Adsense is the other end, where advertisers gain revenue for displaying ads.

    Got it!

    Ok, I have now opened an Adsense account. Does it just begin immediately?

    Thanks again for your help
