    Hi Guys, I have another account with a few hubs and it earned me $0.01 for some of the days without any clicks at all! How did this happen?

      I have had this happen quite often as well. This was referenced a few weeks ago in another forum post that might have your answer:

    I get that too occasionally. I believe (or possibly choose to believe) that is it because whereas mainly you get cash for clicks, there are some adverts that are on an impression basis i.e. you get the money because they've been looked at.

    I'm about 80% sure of this but there may well be other reasons I have no idea about - but I like my deduction so will stick with it:)

    Yes, those are impressions. See http://hubpages.com/faq/#revenue and http://hubpages.com/faq/#revenue for more information about impressions. So yes, you can get money for simply having lots of viewers to your hubs! Clicks will get you rich much faster but everything helps.

    I also see such things sometime, in 100 - 200 impressions I see 0.01 to 0.02 increment in earnings without any clicks.

      ecpm; projected earnings per 1000 views.  If each day showed that same ecpm then you could reasonably expect to earn one penny for each 1000 views.

      It is only projected, however.  Not a firm figure until it happens.  We often earn small amounts per ad view; amounts considerably less than one penny, but it can add up eventually to a few cents.
