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.
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
I am currently also considering using Adsense... will switch over at the end of the month and see what happens during November..
Nobody clicks ads on my Hubpages...well maybe once every six months. All my adsense earnings are from my blogs and websites.
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..
If I disable the ad program does that means I won't get paid by HP? I have no idea how this works.
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.
Switching back and forth is a no-no. Still considering doing an experiment.
Sorry, King. Hungover. Everything looks like I should be watching cartoons.
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.

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this always happen?

My traffic is higher than it has ever been (Five Figures), however, my CPM is very low this month. I feel like some of this traffic is going to waste this month. My CPM has been normal since I started using the HP Ad Program in March 2011, but September is not consistent with previous month's CPMs....

As in HP Ad Program CPM versus straight AdSenseAll of March I do believe I was mostly AdSense. All of April I was mostly CPM.And now it's May. What to do? What to do?We had a recent CPM increase lately, but that seems to have subsided.Used to be that CPM was always better, but those days do seem to...

This month my CPM for the HP Ad Program is super low. It's been under $1.50 every day so far. And last month I had a lot of days where it was under $2. Wondering why that is and if it's just happening to me or if others are experiencing this as well.

Has anyone had any luck with this? I am thinking about turning it off as I have not made any adsense this month and I have only made a few bucks from hubpages.
