Traffic and CPM Yak

    Check it out. https://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.com?country=US

    88 is not bad.

    The good news, my traffic is right along with it.

    The bad news, CPM suddenly not as wished.

    What say you? How is it going?

    Do not mention specific CPM numbers; that is a no-no.

    Time/Date Stamp: 9:50 AM, HP time, 10/17/2013.

    My CPM is moderately good right now.  Not like it was at the peak, but at least over 50% of that number.

      I'm thinking about giving AdSense another shot.

  3. paradigmsearch profile image93
    paradigmsearchposted 4 years ago

    Pro or cons on that?

  4. paradigmsearch profile image93
    paradigmsearchposted 4 years ago

    The non-response is resounding. Serious?

      I tested it way back, see no reason to think adsense has rebounded since then.  My adsense CPM on my other websites only performs well for superniche sites.

    My Hubpages traffic is continuing to improve and I had an unusually high CPM today.  I'm still not writing new Hubs at present but will give it a go again when I can find the time smile

      Is there some reason why we can't post/discuss CPM amounts?  (My traffic is way up and my CPM is way down.)

        Terms of service do not allow giving specifics of earnings or CPMs.

    Adsense has not been doing very well for me recently though.

    I am currently also considering using Adsense... will switch over at the end of the month and see what happens during November..

  8. Cardisa profile image91
    Cardisaposted 4 years ago

    Nobody clicks ads on my Hubpages...well maybe once every six months. All my adsense earnings are from my blogs and websites.

    1. LeanMan profile image87
      LeanManposted 4 years agoin reply to this

      On HP you are probably using their ad program which means that the remaining block of adsense is hidden away where it is unlikely to be clicked and the HP ads have the prime position..
      We are then paid by impressions rather than clicks through the HP ad program. If you disable the HP ad program and revert to all adsense then you MAY find that your account will generate more income through adsense rather than the HP ads, of course the reverse may be true.

      People have discussed this several times in the past with different people finding different performance depending on their content etc..

        Cardisaposted 4 years agoin reply to this

        If I disable the ad program does that means I won't get paid by HP? I have no idea how this works.

        1. LeanMan profile image87
          LeanManposted 4 years agoin reply to this

          You have the choice to use the HP ad program and get paid direct by HP through paypal - or to use adsense only and get paid by Google.

            It sounds like a risk at this point to give up a sure income for an unsure one from Google. I am kinda scared to try it...lol

            Maybe I should have a second account and try the google way with it.

              I never earned as much money with Google as I did the Hubpages ad program. The main reason I think is because the Google ads didn't match what my Hubpage was about at all.

    paradigmsearchposted 4 years ago

    Switching back and forth is a no-no. Still considering doing an experiment.

    We are doing some yield testing and have found a few things that seem to be nice increases.  Hope to expand the test next week.  The gains are from using a new ad type from Google that isn't widely available.  Our hope is to test them more on the desktop next week and expand to mobile shortly.  My gut is it will be significant.

      Traffic went down 30% yesterday since the graph you referenced.  To keep things in perspective, look at the six-month traffic report:

    So the overall picture is encouraging? It looks that way if you look six months into the past.

      I've been on a rollercoaster ride for awhile now.  Sometimes my CPMs are really high, other times, they suck.  Views, however, are simply random.  I have given up worrying about it now that my main income comes from Bubblews.  I take what I can get from HP and that's about it.
