Are Foreign Impressions Profitable

    I am trying to make sense of the revenue stream here on Hub Pages and on the Internet in general.

    First are impressions profitable?  Or it is simply a game of number, the more impressions translate to more clicks which is where the real money is at?

    Also, are impressions and traffic the same?

    Lastly, the traffic that I receive from foreign countries - which by the way is sadly often higher than my US traffic so far - do these impressions or sources of traffic pay me a dividend?

    Your expertise in this area is greatly appreciated.

      They can be profitable, you have to target carefully though.

    I've wondered about that too.  I suppose traffic is traffic and we get paid by the number of impressions specially on HP Ads program.  I would hope that people in the Philippines or Nigeria are showing regional ads that they would be interested in, as I also get views from faraway countries.  But writing to target faraway markets might not be a good idea IMHO. smile
