Anyone else have CPM drop off with increased views? The more views the more it drops.
Check in Google Analytics where the views are coming from and how long they stay on page. If they're only staying a few seconds from sites such as Stumbleupon, or if they're lower paying countries such as India, that may be the reason.
My other account - views are triple, earnings are up 10%, sad.
There are numerous factors involved as other people have pointed out - I checked online earlier and it seems January and February are traditionally poor months for CPM so expect increases to happen gradually over the next few weeks? I hope!
Be careful of listening to people trying to guess why earnings or traffic are down. They sometimes try to normalize negative experiences. You simply asked if anyone else was experiencing the same CPM drop with increased views. It was a yes or no question. The important thing to find out is if there's a trend happening across several people's accounts, not be told that there's got to be a good non-hubpages related answer for the drop. Sometimes it is hubpages problems that cause drops in traffic/CPM. The reason I found your post was because I had the same experience and came looking to see if it's a trend across hubpages, because I'm not seeing this trend on other properties I own in the same niche and the same time period with similar traffic quality.
What Susannah said + the niche.
Is the niche you're seeing improved traffic in a high paying niche? Does the niche in question have a CPM higher than your average to result in your overall CPM going up with increased views or is the value lower than your average that is making it go down? Most likely the second option.
Source and country are big players but it's a mixture of all these factors. Most people notice a decline in CPM with increased traffic, as the sudden increase is usually social media traffic (in most cases).
I'm seeing that I'm earning more with the hub ad program shut off and just having AdSense on there. If you choose to try this out, let me know if you see an increase too. @MelanieShebel on Twitter (HP doesn't notify me of responses even though I "follow" forum threads.)

I ask because I am currently experiencing yet another traffic surge. I've gone from 200+ views per day to in excess of 1600. Yet the income remains pretty darn poor.I've brought this up more than once and I have to say...

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally...

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...

Hi all. Have been away for a while. Can you please update me to the effect that the niche sites have had on your hubpages if any. Look forward to chatting with you all my fellow hubbers!

do google views have a higher CPM, because people say google views are better, is that why?
