New hubber question

    I am a fairly new hubber. I have about 30 hubs so far. When I first started writing hubs my CPM was around 10 dollars. And now that I am about to hit 1k total views its .33 cents. I did some research and found out that adsense income took a big hit back in Jan. I live in California so I cannot make use of amazon. My question is, can people still make a few dollars per hub per day? I read several forums from a few years back where people were making that much. 
    Is there other websites for posting articles that might increase my freelance writing income?

    Thanks

      What's hubads?

    The earnings are not likely to go back to pre-Panda anytime soon.  But you might consider trying HubAds, I get results about half way between the two with it.

    If you go to "my account", "earnings" you will see Hubads as a new option.  If activated it replaces most of the Adsense spot with Hubads own program. Not everyone makes more with it than with pure adsense, but given your current CPM I think it would be some improvement.

      It seems like I have always had hub-ads activated on my account.  I wonder if I should try deactivating it.

        That will be one of the reasons your adsense is down. 

        Nevertheless, most hubbers seem to find the combination paying more than adsense by itself.  Experimentation is the only way you will find out for yourself; turn hpads off for a month and compare the total CPM with and without hpads.

    If you can make a few dollars per hub per day you will be truly exceptional and an instant HubPages hero.

    At that rate my 100 hubs would produce at least $6000 per month.  I would be ecstatic with 1/10 of that.

      The only reason I said a few dollars per hub is I was reading a post form this forum from about 22 months ago and a few people were talking about how certain hubs made them a few bucks a day. Now I know that adsense took a dive back in Jan.  But I was curious if a hub could become that profitable.

        Yes, a few hubs will make a few $$ per day.  Unfortunately they are rare.  Most of us find that only a few percent of our hubs earn much at all.  Most are good for a few pennies every few days.

        Of course, it only takes a few good earners to make it worthwhile. smile

    Hello Everyone, 44 hours and counting on hubpages. I see some excellent questions and answers on the forums. I know now that all us new hubbers will get the support we need or support that I need anyway.

    Thanks to all

    If hubads is turned on you need to look there for your earnings which are paid directly by Hubpages, not via adsense.

    It is also logical to try a month on adsense and a month on Hubads to see which gets you the best overall CPM (remembering that for Hubads it is what you get for hubads plus a little more for the adsense ads that still run under this program).
