Is the Revenue potential in the hub metrics based strictly on the subject of the content? Or is there something that can be done to improve that?
It's just an undefined indication of potential which I think is primarily influenced by your tags. But it's no indication of how well the Hub is actually interacting with your audience, nor is it any indication of true earnings.
1) what is it based on? - undefined, but seems to be some sort of keyword scan, I dont believe it is tags, as I usually max out the stars before placing any tags (other than the first 2) based on my keyword research
so i think it scans the url/headers keyword density and measure from there
2) Can you do anything about it?
Sure, forget the hub measurement, you can maximize your click potential earnings and traffic by taking advantage of keyword research before writing
most use the simple
Thanks for the feedback. I was just wondering if there was some basis that was worth working on.
From your response Im not sure if we made sense
Since you write a lot about disc golf:
top ecpc from a keyword tool
az disc golf $1.49
innova golf discs $1.48
frisbee golf discs $1.23
aerobie disc golf $1.19
innova disc golf $1.13
disc golf online $1.11
disc golf equipment $1.10
disc golf sales $1.09
disc golf supplies $1.08
If you work any of those terms into your titles, a couple of headers in a text capsule and 3-4 times throughout your text, your very likely to return ads based on those keywords - over a 1.00 aint bad and your very likely to increase the metric
But more importantly your very likely to increase your earnings
sorry, if you were already completely in the know, but figured Id finish fleshing the answer out just in case
-good story about the stolen disc bag - you already have
disc golf bags $1.04
a good keyword in the url and a couple of times throughout - use your header option more with text capsules to really influence the ad s that are triggered (although that one seems to be doing just fine)
Since sunforged is being incredibly helpful in this thread, I might as well ask while it is relevant. How much weight do keywords in the entire text have versus keywords in the title/first two paragraphs in regards to Adsense selections?
Normally, i can give concrete answers that have back up besides my own experience and testing, in this case, im only stating my own theory.
5 ads display on each hub page (it looks like 4 when your logged in, but there is an additional banner ad when you are not)
BTW - i am working on an article that explains this with pictures
The order of precedence (in my opinion is)
H2 (text capsule header, or selected from dropdown in text capsule)
Proximity to ad
That order is only important when you first publish, why?
because adsense uses the data from your page to target teh best performing modules and serves best performing ads based on their performance on your page
and another big but is hubpages own Yieldbuild service - i dont know if that only effects ad placement or if it also effects selection
Usually when im tweaking an established/indexed/performing hub you can see the ads change in relation to your keyword placements just by hitting refresh a couple of times - i play until im certain the big hitter ads I want are being served
I would really like to know if the big banner ad is our impression to?
disclaimer- this is mostly my theory pertaining to hubs, but the adsense serving formula is openly stated within your adsense accounts and forums
I should point out that i mostly use adwords data for traffic, adsense is not an important part of my income, But once a hub is doing what I want it to, I do try and optimize the ads as a fallback
My main topics , ebay /online auctions / aff marketing /writing for money , are all pretty hard to top rank for w/o significant backlinking
sunforged Thank you for all the great info. I appreciate the time on your answer.

I have a hub just under 1,000 words that gets approx. 100 visitors per day. The hub metrics shows View Duration and Incoming Links at 5 stars. But the revenue potential only shows at a single $. How is that calculated?
