HubPage view, adsense impression pages, and adsense click

    Hello everyone,
    I'm new on hubpage.
    Here is my question: in 8 days i have published 6 hubs, which led to 525 page views which led to 137 impression pages on google adsense and 0 click.
    Is this normal. How to explain the fall from 525 tp 137 impression and on average how many page viewed you need to get a click?
    Also my best hub was on the second page of google search for a few days, and now it's nowhere to be found? Any idea?
    thanks
    David

      it is totally normal though you were a bit unlucky not have a single click. After publishing a hub Google gives it an initial boost in position but it doesn't sustain the position for long. As time passes the hubs will get aged and climb up the position again. Nothing to worry. Learn about keyword research and do it prior to writing hubs for getting better position in quicker time.

      It is normal only. You should wait for the click.

        And different topic has different conversion rate though 1.5% is an average click through rate as far as I am concerned.

      There is a difference between tracking systems of HP and Adsense with Adsense being more accurate. And then you get only 60% of the of the total impressions. Also, there is a possibility that you entered your affiliate ID after some time of joining.

      How much of your traffic is from Google? Traffic from HubPages doesn't really convert very well into clicks. Also, it is very much possible to receive zero clicks after 137 impressions even if all of them are from search engines.

        you are right, i realize that my Adsense ID had been approved only for the last 2 days, which explains the discrepancy. So i missed on 7 days of traffic lol!
        Yea most of my traffic comes from hubpages, i get 8-12% of my traffic from google only

      Hi Dave,

      It is rather strange that you did not get a single click, but that's life.

      Freshness is a ranking factor in Google, and a new page naturally has a ranking boost, which dissipates fairly rapidly.  it is also possible that you ranked higher than someone, who then put in a little bit more effort to beat you to the top spot.

      It is still early days, you should see higher rankings appear as you spend longer on the site smile

      Did you check to see where your visits are coming from?

      Chances are most are internal to HubPages. Hubbers don't click on ads, because they have an incidental interest in what you're writing about, and we've been trained to avoid click fraud.

      Over time, though, if your Hubs are really great (better than the competition) they will slowly rise in Google rankings. Google visitors are far more likely to click on ads. smile

        After checking one of my hub gets 50% of its traffic through google the others around 8% i think. I'm not sure why this hub gets more attention from google, probably a hotter topic and probably better keywords (but i'm not sure there is anyone who knows what are great tags compare to just average tags for google!)

    And yes your click conversion rate is supposed to be lower as your page is not optimized in terms of ads placement. The 360x250 size ad block is the best place to get clicked when placed on the right top of the hub. In all your hub you have placed an image there and pushed the ads downward. Its recommended not to place an image on top of a hub.

    And by the way, your TOS with Google prohibits you from disclosing anything but money earned.  It is really silly and I doubt they really care about small numbers like that, but technically you are in violation.

    I just wanna update on my stats: after a month i'm at 1461 pages viewed on HP, which convert in only 666 impression pages on Adsense, and only 1 click!!
    So let's say Adsense is more accurate and that it converts into only 60% of page impressions as someone mentionned earlier so i should be around 880 minus the one i missed before i register to Adsense
    But how to explain the 1 click only!!!

    I think I got it. The problem is that I write from France, I have thus registered to Adsense with a French address and the problem is that I write in english about international, USA oriented subjects and my hubs are listed on google.com or canada, or australie or uk...With half of my ad in French or linking to a website in France or swizerland or uk i understand why i get so few clicks
    How can i change that setting, so that i can get ad related to the subject i write about, in english and geographically sound ??

      If you are in France Google will display french advertisements, but they will display English advertisements to people in English speaking countries.

      If I were you I would get Google Analytics set up and do some keyword analysis to figure out how to make your work more appealing to the people who are finding it.
