I am a new Hubber and I have just set up my hubpages account with my Adsense account. I was just wondering about the difference between CTR, CPC, RPM. Will gooogle pay me only if someone clicks on an ad on one of my pages? Or will I also be paid of I get a lot of traffic (but noone clicks on the ads) ?
The large majority of adsense earnings comes from clicks, but a few pennies often show up from ad impressions as well.
From a practical standpoint clicks produce the income.
Have you signed up for the HP ad program? That one is primarily impressions, not clicks.
@wolderness thanks. I have signed up for HP ad program but am still at 0.00
earning from clicks is pretty straight forward but how is earning from ad impressions calculated?
If you are running both HPads and adsense I doubt you will get any clicks from adsense. HPads take the place of adsense ads most of the time. Given that, adsense clicks will be rare.
Each impression (ad view) makes a small amount (1/10 cent perhaps although it varies). HP will usually update the numbers on views and earnings daily, in the morning.
Most hubbers are finding it advantageous to use HPads and swallow the loss of adsense clicks, but it does vary. At this point I would suggest that you keep HPads enabled - you should earn at least something and the payout is only $50 instead of $100. Later, you may want to disable it for a month and test what happens.

Please forgive my ignorance, folks, but I'm really not sure that I understand how Adsense works. I can see that clicks on Ads give you cash, but why is there also a running total for "impressions"?Firstly,...

I have deleted my adsense account myself. And was just wondering if I can still earn money on hubpages with my amazon. Thanks

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?

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I...
