    I may have missed it somewhere in this forum.. I'm not sure. But I couldn't figure it out so I'm asking!

    My question is, what exactly is the steps you have to take and what all do you have to do before you can earn money?
    I know you have to sign up for Goodl adsense and I have done that, as well as linked a Paypal account, but I am not sure what else I would need to do.

    Thanks for any help. =]

      Well you seem to already be doing a good job by having wrote 4 hubs already  even though you've only been hear for a little over a day. Make sure you're signed up for all of the earning programs. I don't know if you're just signed up to the google adsense program but make sure you sign up for the hubpages ad program in addition to that and the ebay and amazon programs.

      It will take a while for you to start earning money. The key is to have as many high quality SEO friendly hubs as possible. The more views you get and the more clicks you get on the ads on your hubs, the more money you will make so you need a lot of hubs. At first you might earn a few pennies a day and then you'll gradually work your way up to a quarter a day, and so on. If you keep up the hard work you should start to make at least a dollar a day, and even more in the future.

      Putting the right keywords and tags on your hubs is important because it helps people find your hubs in search engines, which is the ultimate goal.

        You must tell HP what your adsense number is; if they don't know they can't tell google which pageviews are yours and which are theirs. 

        Go to "my account", "earnings" and "configure" your google adsense.  With that done you can also "configure" your HP ad program; most hubbers find it beneficial to do so.  Not all; some do better without the HPads program and it will definitely cut into your adsense income.
