    I am currently averaging an CPM of $1.40 from hubpages ad program. The main reason is I don't get much visitors from USA. My visits mostly comes from India and South Asia. Just getting 5-8 cents per day :-(

    Like to know how much your CPM is averaging. I personally never saw more than $4.50 in my hubs.

    Advice Needed : Can I switch off Hubpages Ad program anytime of the month???

    Yesterday was a better time, but you can still do it.

    Since I started on Hub Ads, my CPM has fallen steadily each month during which my views have increased. With an overall 400-500% increase in views since start, I am seeing a maximum 50% increase in earnings.

    A secondary account of mine recently showed a CPM of well under one dollar.

    I agree with WriteAngled, the higher the traffic, the more diluted my CPM seems to be. I used to hover around $6 eCPM and now, although my aggregate earnings are higher due to increased views, my CPM has fallen to about $4.50.

      I think it would be better if the CPM has a lower limit and an upper limit, at least then one gets an assurance that the case won't get worse or better than the limits indicated.

        Who would pay it? 

        HP doesn't pay you to write hubs and merely "forwards" the payment from advertisers.  Until HP decides to change their business model and buy your hubs they owe you nothing that hasn't been given to them from advertisers on your behalf.

        I doubt you will convince advertisers to pay you for views or clicks that didn't happen, either.  Nor will they increase what they pay without competition forcing them to; it's called capitalism.
