Thanks, Nspeel. I think it was 3 weeks before I started seeing the first pennies trickle in on Adsense. It really depends on the types of topics you write about.
For me, I had to experiment with topics. I did several HubChallenges (writing 30 hubs in 30 days) and some of those topics have been my best money-earners. Some of the least expected things generate the most. The key is writing for a large enough audience that is also prone to clicking on Google ads. You can study SEO and research keywords to help figure out what those things are too.
Thankyou for sharing not just your well-deserved delight, but especially the flow chart of your progress to this awesome achievement. I've been here only a few months, and have begun to feel that just getting to 10,000 pageviews is looking a long way off - much less a million! But when I look at your stats of time taken and hubs loaded to attain your first 10,000, I'm amazed to see that I'm actually ahead of that curve!! NOT to say for a nanosecond that I'll necessarily ever get to that magic million mark, but just that realisation alone has given me the spur I needed to stay focused, and increase my output.
I've copied your 'schedule of attainment', and filed it on my desktop under the heading "Inspiration". I'll look at it often, I'm sure
So again, thankyou very much. And sincere congratulations.
One million views is absolutely fabulous. I should hit a half million in about 3 weeks or so. You have definitely been an encouragement and inspiration. As you suggested, I've kept a diary of sorts of my HubPages milestones.
I have been on HubPages for 6 years now, and its been quite an interesting journey to say the least. I am so thrilled, because I noticed I had finally hit 1 million views, something I can't say I anticipated ever really! I am sharing this in part, to encourage people to hang in there,...
With the event of me approaching 1 million hub views in a few days or so, this gives me the chance to reflect back and see what I did to increase my traffic and revenues through Hubpages.What really started the ball rolling was the very first Hubchallenge back in May 2009 and I've since done 4 or 5...
Holy Moly, I just saw my milestone posted on Hubtivity. 1,000,000 pageviews. I feel like it really wasn't that long ago that it was 10,000 pageviews, but I've been a member of Hubpages for over 2 years now and it is has become a big part of of my life and a significant contributor to my income.I...
