The 3 stage flyer for HP suggests - write hubs, put them up, earn money when people click on your ads.
But now people are not clicking on the ads, is the HP information strictly accurate?
Actually, what with the hpads program, I'd semi-rewrite it as follows:
write hubs, put them up, earn money when people see or click your ads.
People are clicking on my ads, so from my POV it is still accurate.
It's funny you just posted this because I was going to say something about it.
While it is true that you can make money on HubPages, you will mainly make money by writing articles about things people are searching for. Sure, you can write about anything, but if it's not being searched on the internet, then you will not get any visitors to make earnings/traffic etc..
However, there are topics that people are interested in writing about and they are also being searched in the search engines.
I do not think it's misleading exactly -- just not entirely specific if your intention is to make money.

The stats have frozen again, and have not been updated for 12 hours (heading for the weekend). Earlier in the week they were stuck for 3 days. That means that the stats are only OK, twice a week - very disappointing! It has been getting worse lately. Please fix this HP staff. Thanks.

Bare with me, i'm very new and still getting the hang of it all!!Can we help each other out by clicking on each others adverts, or does clicking the links alone not generate income for the person? Do you need people to make a purchase after clicking your link???
