I have been wondering around this site trying to find information about the earnings page. Where do I go to find out about the abbreviations used in the reports?
CPM is how much you earn per thousand views. I don't know if there is any kind of tutorial on how to read the earnings reports here.
Like you I been wondering around since I signed. I found what I needed just by doing that but I too did it outside of this site. That helped me to find what I was looking for
CPM is Cost per Thousand Impressions. Impressions are page impressions.
CPM is actually an advertiser term because the ads are a cost to the advertiser. The publisher version is RPM or Revenue per Thousand Impressions, but CPM is a more common term for both advertisers and publishers.
So before you are compensated you need 1000 clicks?
No, Say you make $3 for a thousand views. This means if you get 100 views, you'd get 30 cents; if my math is correct. CPM is just an average.
Also, I think it's important to know the difference between clicks and views; clicks are when someone clicks on an ad; this is important for Adsense because they mostly pay for clicks, what is called CPC - cost per click. The Hubpages Program pays per impression, or view; meaning someone views an ad; that's what CPM is; it is when someone is on your page and sees an ad.
It's also important to note that advertisers bid to see how much they'll have to pay to list an ad on anybody's site. The higher the winning bid, the more the writer makes on views.
Thank you all for helping me with understanding about the earnings page. I think I get it know.
