hubpages ad program CPM 0.35$

    I have 2 hubs and when the start of the hub pages ad program these two hubs had 4-6$ cpm.

    then it won't down constantly and now it's nearly next to nothing.

    i know certain facts like the country of the visitor and few other facts may change the rate a bit.

    but this change is getting constant and only going down not up.

    i think it will reach 0.10$ pretty soon.

    Two hubs is not a reliable sample size. Would you trust a poll where only two people responded?

    Anyways, I "only" have around 100 hubs but I've been pretty consistently around 3-4 dollars CPM with the HP ad program. Try writing some more to see how it changes.

    Or, you know, don't. People are totally in the right to abandon a moneymaking service they feel isn't working for them.

      my problem is that the contents(amount of hubs) are the same, but the cpm getting lower and lower every week.

    When you started the program were the hubs new?  Because new material tends to float in Google, and then settle a bit. I bet that if you make some more content and cross/back link it a bit you will bet back at ~$5 pretty soon. Especially if you make hubs with more words and more diverse topics.  Pictures of pretty gals are everywhere, that's a hard google battle to win.

      no,i think it's nothing to do with google nor the amount of traffic.

      it's about the fact that the cpm is getting lower and lower for me for the same content.

      yea,i know that the entertainment concept which i am using is bit hard one to get at top in google,will add difference in topics soon.


      Thanks for the reply.

    Small sample sizes lead to very large swings, is what I was trying to say.

      i don't think so.

      what i am having is that there is no swings like up and down,it's just going down and down,

      from that what i am understanding is that it's not about size but about the cpm which getting lower and lower every time.
      is what i was trying to say?

    I guess maybe a shift in the available advertisers may not be meshing well with the kind of traffic those hubs get?

    I remember I used to make $3 a click several times a day on my driving anxiety blog.  There was this one company that made a product to treat this disorder and they paid well.  When they stopped using adsense that blog never made another cent.

      that's exactly what i think,as the reason for the lowering cpm.

    I also have the same problem my hpad cpm getting lower and lower, so i disabled the hpads program. My stats do not show any traffic other than hubpages. Some hubs getting regular google traffic for some time and suddely no traffic at all. Is it a bug or is it due to the testing.

      You might recheck your stats.  Individual hub stats did have a problem with some kind of glitch but has apparently been fixed.  At least mine are now showing something other than just HP and google.

    Interesting.  My HPad CPM had dropped slightly, maybe 15%, from when it started back in March, but is actually rising slowly the last few weeks.

    Daily CPM may well vary by 3-4 dollars, but the weekly figures show that slow rise and it is about where it started from.
