    I finally received my first payout from Hubpages since joining 18 months ago. It took a while. If Google haven't changed their algo I would have made payout about a month or two sooner. Now I am almost there for my first Hub Ad Program payout since the change by Hubpages.

    Congrats! I just checked my account and found out this exact same thing.

    I reached payout a while ago, but didn't have Google or Amazon release payments until last month. I wish I could say I was going to repeat how much money I made pre-algo, but hey.

    Me too, just recently.  It has taken me over a year to get one from AdSense.  My political and social hubs do not do so well here, but they do rank well on Google.   Congrats!
