    Like many of you, I had several days of low CPM, which I found extremely frustrating. For the past two days, however, my CPM has doubled. I hope this continues!

      Things do indeed seem to have perked up.

      Mine fell to a low of <TOS violating info snipped> but am glad it is going up again. I tried to check the value of campaigns and the value of keywords to see if there was a change but i could determine the cause of decrease over the last few days, did you determine probable cause/causes?

      Much to my surprise, the same has happened to me...nice to see 5+ CPM instead of 2-.

      I have heard the less you smoke, the higher your CPM.  Heck, it makes about as much sense as anything else, right?  wink  Congrats on quitting, Habee.

      I take it all back...everything got readjusted and my CPMs are back in the toilet again!  Even my one day spike got cut back by almost 30%.  This really sucks!

    Excuse my ignorance but, what is CPM?

      By hubpages definition: your payment rate per 1000 hits.

      It is the cost that advertisers pay per 1000 views (of ads on your hubs).... So higher CPM means higher earnings. I think I am correct but someone please do correct me if I'm wrong. That is the way I understood it anyway.

        You mean I can make money doing this?  I better read something.

          So all I have to do is create a hub with a catchy title and lots of people will view it and I will make money?   I need to pay closer attention to life.

            Waldo Numbly:  It's a bit more complicated than that, my friend.  You need to sit down and read what's in the learning center before you continue writing on HP.  It takes years, sometimes, to perfect your skills and earn decent money here.

    Very low weekend traffic, but the higher CPM improved my mood this morning.

    Happy days are here again...............?  big_smile

      I don't think so, Rosie. Just another temporary rise in the continuing roller coaster. Content sites like this are far from being stable.

    Mine hasn't quite doubled but it is up as well as traffic.  Don't want to jinx it, but.... smile

      Mine has doubled the past two days as well, which brings it back to the low end of where it used to be.  I suspect this has something to do with Google's advertising algorithm that maybe, finally, has kicked in?  No matter...I'm very happy to see this happening!

    Keep in mind as well, the CPM paid by advertisers affects Hubpages bottom line as well as our earnings, so it's in their best interest to get as high a rate as they can. We all benefit.

      +1 I think this statement could be applied to all HP do - they are not out to damage readers, they are trying to improve things for their bottom line and ultimately ours!!!

        Depressed as I am about the low CPMs lately, I really think in the long run things will straighten out.  Right now I believe Google is not ranking us well because of all the low level articles we have on this site.  If each of us would make it a point to flag those hubs we feel are substandard, and if the staff will follow through on those flags, in time our ratings will rise.  Quality control is the answer to making HP the wonderful and successful site it once was.  I would add her that we all should police our own hubs and dump the under performers, blogs and rants.  HP would also do well to remove those categories that don't bring in views such as poetry, humor and book series.  Although these may be well written, this is not the place for those types of articles.  I have gotten rid of ALL my articles of this type and while it hurt to do it, I feel it helped my numbers as well as the HP community.  We need to put our money where are mouths are folks!

          Sorry for the typo...it should have been here not "her".  This is what happens when I become emotional and type faster than I can think!
