Falling CPM

    Has anyone else found that their CPM on Hub Ads is falling.  My views have been slowly rising and my CPM has been slowly falling.  So although I'm getting more quality views I'm actually earning less money.  When we had the change earlier in the month I was very happy with my CPM, now it's starting to head back to where it was. 

    Anyone else seeing something similar?

          Well that's more than double what I'm getting.  I wish we knew how the CPM is calculated so we could do something to make it go up.

            My average was about 3 for the month..
            Hope it manages to stay at 6 that would be great.
            Ya I would love to know the way CPM is  caluclated.

    I've found that mine is varying quite a bit day to day this month.  It had dropped some last week, but then jumped right back up yesterday.  It could well fall again today.

      I suppose it's a bit like what we used to have on Adsense, good days and bad days.  Just seem to be having more bad days recently.

        I'm sure it is.  Advertisers come and go, and what they are willing to pay goes up and down.  With impression based ads I expect we'll see quite a drop after New Years and advertising budgets go down.

    My CPM is holding at $4.00-$4.50, which is not too bad, but the 50% drop in traffic also meant a huge drop in earnings.

    I was just going to post a thread about this! lol

    My traffic is a lot higher last few days, but my CPM is much lower than it was earlier in the month. I think this might be because advertisers bid less money at the end of the month because they already spent a lot. I could be wrong, wish I knew for sure.

    It seems like every time my traffic is higher, my CPM is low. And every time my traffic is lower, the CPM is high. What irony! hmm Basically, I end up making the same. To make more, I would need both to be high.

      This is what happens to me as well. I guess it depends on quality visits. The longer the visit the higher CPM?
      I'm just guessing not sure. Because more views can mean more bounces as well.
