CPM follows the movement of the San Andreas Fault.

??!! And there I thought it was the lava flows from Kilauea in Hawaii! As the lava flow increased, we see a drop in CPM - the money is being used to pay the dwarves shoveling coal into the furnace.
Nope. But earthquakes near San Francisco are related to the geothermal hotspots near Mammoth Lakes:
All of which are leading to the Big Quake, which – if HP has no contingency plan – will wipe out CPM on HP for all time.
Meanwhile, war is beginning in the Balkans, right where World War I and World War II started.
Oh my. Now you've frightened me, for it is all to obvious that when the big one comes, the CPM on HP will die a horrible, twisted painful death.
Perhaps I should stop praying for everything south of the Redwoods to fall into the ocean...
Wow! And here I thought this would be tough to answer...I had no idea how simple this is. I tend to over think things sometimes so thank you for confirming what I thought it to be. Soon, I will have completed my "Earthquake Proof Lava Fault Line Sealant" (a.k.a. EPL FLS) so no worries. I knew I would find a use my finest invention.
Are you selling shares in that????????
In answer to your CPM question, it's related to where your traffic is from, what advertisers are willing to pay for the keywords you target, seasonal ups and downs, etc. Here's one of the most recent threads about it:
My CPM here is way down, by the way, and there's really nothing I can do about that for my existing Hubs.
LOL Nor for your future hubs, I fear. Try to change keywords/topics to match high $ CPM's and it will all change in the hour it takes to write the hub!
Unfortunately, someone has already reverse engineered the product so I've decided to sell to 3M for their use on sticky notes.
Me too since I can't see where any of my keywords are outdated or changing. My niche is rather timeless...until someone starts calling their furnace "that heaty thing" anyways.
Yeah, it stinks because traffic has been good but if I'm not hitting on all cylinders, it's a wash. Can't complain really but I am anyway.
Wilderness - Good looking out on me indulging in a time sink. I think I'll ride it out. I've got a lot of editing I want to do to evolve my master plan but don't want to double down on the work until I learn more about things like this.
Off to learn more about creating click-able tables of content. YEEHAW!!!

CPM, as I understand it. is the amount an advertiser pays per 1000 impressions from your hub. I have noticed that the number of impressions that show in the earnings tabs is lower than the number of views. I am guessing...

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this...
