I just made a whopping 35 cents on 112 impressions! Anybody else starving like me?
Yeah, me too. It has dropped some all month (as expected with Xmas over) and yesterday was pathetic, although it does have the asterisk and I'm hoping it rises some when complete.
Dude, this must be why it's called being a starving artist.
Guess I am really going to have to go out and sing for my supper.
Let's hope those number increase.
Mine have crashed by more than 150%!! Happened last year too, so I'm not bothered.
Is 150% possible? That would put you in the negative
At what time of the year did you see the CPMs rise again?
Over the last seven days I've achieved between $2.20 and $3.30 CPM - I really hope it improves!
Some of the reasons why i stick with Adsense. If its HPads, i find its earnings are so dismal.
But i have one of my HP accounts with HPads on, just as an experiment and the experiment is still on.
Its earnings are not even a quarter as good as adsense.
Perhaps HP staff can provide feedback on why CPM has fallen so dramatically.
Well guys, I got companies..
My good traffic is useless now thanks to the decreasing CPM. I just didn't know what to do as it went drastically from $5 to $4 and now to $2.8! Arrrgh I think I need to commit suicide.
I read last year that Google earned less money from their advertisers than in previous years. Maybe this compounded with the fact that it is post-holidays, is why the HP Ad Program isn't paying good CPMs right now/
Thanks for this thread, Timetraveller. I'm in the same boat.
CPM right now on HPAds is lowest since the program started. Earnings suck big time. This morning I actually burst out laughing on how pathetic my HPAds earning was. I am now contemplating on turning it off, and gamble on adsense clicks instead.
If CPM stays this low for the rest of the month, I'll turn it off in February and see what happens.
Rosie2010: Come back and tell me the results if you do that, OK? Something definitely is going on here, and it would be nice to find out what it is.
I am considering doing the same thing bearing in mind my last two days earnings took a huge dive even though the traffic was only a relatively small amount down.
My traffic is good, in fact very good. Totally recovered from December holiday season. However, the CPM is absolutely low. Perhaps i should turn HP Ads off and see how things were going on with Adsense. May be i will try the same from Feb.

Why am I earning almost 0$ from Adsense from 1st April?Before 1st April, I earned decent dollars on Adsense. But, from then, my earnings are almost nil. I am getting higher views & clicks but no earnings. Is it because I have linked my Hubpages a/c with my Youtube Adsense a/c or is it...

I am puzzled because even when my traffic gets a bit better (low for some, but still good for me right now), my CTR rate for Google is almost always nothing. I get something from Google about once a month, if that, with 58 hubs written. Does anyone else find the CTR quite poor for hubpages, or is...

I had the best 2 days on google for my home affordable hub, great traffic from Google then ramped down after 2 days. I checked my Kontera account and noticed their was a high rate of click through for the same hub, at of course a lower rate than adsense would bring.So I disabled my Kontera ads on...

I switched off HP Ads one week before the end of April (I was going to wait till the end of April, but had to go away for a few days so did it early).I've now compared the first three weeks of April (with HP Ads switched on) to the first three weeks of May, (with them switched off).I can now say,...

This is just weird. For the last 5 years about 25% of my traffic has consistently come from google UK, but over the last few days this has all vanished. (I'm still getting traffic from all the other google sites including US and Canada.) Is anyone else experiencing UK traffic disappearing?
