...CPM changes with traffic patterns? It seems when my traffic rises my CPM declines so my income stays about the same. If traffic falls my CPM rises. Over the last month my CPM has ranged from under $5 to near $15.
I am curious if other experience the same thing.
Yes, I have exactly the same experience, except my CPM varies in a range which is about 35% of yours, which is highly disappointing.
It doesn't do much for motivation!
I am experiencing the same thing, but my maximum CPM is a LOT lower than yours *jealous*
Sorry Keith, but I'm not presently using Hubpages Ads Program. So, I cannot say.
I agree with this 100%, the more views I get, the lower my CPM, very annoying.
I'm wondering if HP have shot themselves in the leg with this program. I know that for me the cost of running HP ads was rather high.
I am finding that about 60% of the time my HpAds CPM seems lower when my views seem to climb.
Reviewing my hubs based on this my CPM is lower when I get a rise in hubs about computers, movies, music, games and similar forms of entertainment.
My CPM seems to increase with hubs about mobile devices, mobile apps, games, finance and some product based hubs (still trying to nail which products!!!!)
But this list is endless, and still hard to determine which is better or worse.
I am one person out of thousands using the program, my experience and earnings are different to everyone elses (which we all understand)
But my point is, those advertisers that are paying for the ads, we don't know which companies are signed up, how much they pay, how often they pay and who the 'big hitters' are (At&T, Coca Cola, Ford as examples).
Based on my experience with AdSense, I am using the same philosophy as those who use Adwords. I reckon that if I have a bunch of hubs about credit cards, they will do much better with CPM than a bunch of hubs about comic book hero movies.
It is almost tempting to create two new accounts and do a test purely on this suggestion!
I recently opened a new account for experimental purposes only. I'm switching on HPads for this new account only. Making it a one niche account.
It has never worked for me in my other accounts, so it's been off for months now.
I have made 1cent in the past few days on this new account, but it's still early days yet.
I turned on HubAds yesterday afternoon and got a big old Mortgage Ad on a Football hub. No wonder I made no money after that. lol I just de-activated HP Ads once again. The target of these Ads is ridiculous on my hubs. I do much better with Adsense.

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally...

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this...

My traffic is higher than it has ever been (Five Figures), however, my CPM is very low this month. I feel like some of this traffic is going to waste this month. My CPM has been normal since I started using the HP Ad...
