    I am seeing in my account where one of  my CPM is $6.00 however my earning from this is only 0.2 cents, can some one please explain how this works, and where does the rest  of the money goes?

      Hi keish_777,

      CPM refers to the rate paid per 1000 page views. As your views go up, so will your earnings, but it can take time. It's immensely rewarding to watch your earnings grow as you write more Hubs and gain an audience, though, so be patient. You'll get there!

      Here's some more info on making money with HubPages if you're interested. smile

    Sorry. I don't think I'll ever understand it completely, Keish. If you find out, please let us know. wink

    Thanks for your replies but it really does not explain who gets the other $5.98.  I would really appreciate if some explain because it just seem so erroneous.

      Okay let me try to explain this.. If your CPM is 6.00 and you only receive .02 cents.. you must have only had 10 views for that day? because you would need 1000 views for that day to receive 6.00 dollars.. and your CPM will vary daily, and depending on your category.

    It does explain it, let me try again.

    Your CPM is how much you get per 1000 visitors.

    If you had had 1000 visitors you would get $6.

    If you got 2 cent you have about  4 visitors.

    Yes?

    If not, something went wrong.

    You haven't earned the $6.00 because you haven't had the 1000 views.  $6.00 only refers to the rate you WILL (when you reach it) be paid per 1000 views.

        It is based on the amount advertisers are prepared to pay for ads to be shown on your pages.

    I think I understand... a bit better now.  You guys have been great. Thank you all.

    It is descriptive, based on the ads you get fed based on your content and the kind of traffic you have.  Some ads pay better than others and I think US traffic tends to be worth more.

    Thanks for asking this question. I'm glad to have read the answers. I'm wondering, based on one of the replies ... do advertisers bid to get ads placed on specific HubPages? Figured I'd ask it here instead of staring a new thread.

      No, I have used Adwords as an advertiser, you bid on keywords and they are automatically show in various places such as google searches, websites and Hubs etc.  They are either shown on hubs  with simliar keywords in the hub or based on your seach history.

      Per thousand views, reguardless of time.

      To keep it simple @ $1.00 per thousand views (CPM)

      If you had one page and it got
      1000 views in one day = $1
      1000 views in one month = $1
      10,000 views in one day = $10.00
