From what I understand CPM is paid by the keyword's CPC value 1 time for each 1000 impressions? So let's say I have only 1 Hub and the keyword's CPC value used to search and find my Hubpage through the Google Search Engine is $3.50. If that same keyword phrase worth $3.50 is used 1000 times, I would earn $3.50 (I'm not going to include the 40% or whatever the amount is that Hubpages takes, in order to keep the math simple).
So if this is correct, then what if we have the exact same numbers as above except the search was performed from the HubPages Search and not from the Google Search Engine? What would the CPC or CPM value be the same or different, and if so, how different?
My next question would be if my HubPage article is not visited through a search at all, but rather from a direct link here on HubPages, how is that earning calculated?
Thanks in advance.
CPM is a calculated figure; earnings divided by traffic times 1000 (the M part).
It doesn't matter where the visitor comes from, you will be paid the same. Clicking on a title with high paying keywords doesn't earn a dime; viewing the ads on the hub, or clicking them in some instances, is what pays. A visitor that backs out before the page is loaded won't earn you a thing no matter how many times he clicked the google link.
Not sure how I missed your reply, so first let me thank you for your response.
So if I understand you correctly, it does not matter where the visitor comes from or if any keywords were used at the time, it only matters how much the ads shown on the target page are worth (or how much the advertiser is paying for those ads shown on the site).

I haven't written anything on HP for about two years. I still come by occasionally to comment, or post to the forum. I noticed that with 174 hubs I get about 100 pages views a day. Just wondering if real traffic is sent to those participating, rather than those who are not. ...

Hi I am new here, and I have been trying to figure out how this works for almost a month now. It is different than Triond, where i used to publish before. Triond is smooth and you can find information about anything you want with a single click. There are no complicated programs. But the earnings...

How does hubpages work that is different than other blogging sites?I started making a hub before I knew what I was doing. I thought it was like each person was making a website, and that one article could link to the next one, but then found out I was not at all aware of the concept.It seems to me...
