Over the last 3 days my earnings went down 80% - what's going on? This happened once before. Anyone else's earning dropping dramatically over the last 3 days?
Search patterns change this close to the holidays in countries which celebrate. (Your traffic from India, for instance, should be the same as normal for your Hubs.)
My CPM was the lowest it's ever been on December 22nd and my traffic was down by about 2,000 views for the day. Because my rankings on Google are the same, I'm sure things will start to pick up to normal on December 26th or January 2nd.
I'm sure I'm nowhere near any of you (I'm kinda new), but in my case, traffic has been great. My earning are nice too. I think my earnings this month will close near $30.
It is BEST to e-mail the HubPages Team and discuss the issue privately. It is unwise to discuss earnings publicly.
I don't think Hub pages is a earning site. But yes, earnings are reduced for last few days
Hubpages is beginning to earn again. Just not as it once did. I've been here through 3 Christmas seasons now, and it's always slow around Christmas and New Years. In between the holidays you often have a few good days. I realize that our traffic comes from India, a lot of my followers are from there. But Christmas still affects this site. Be patient.
People take time away from being online around major holidays, if there's lots of bad weather, etc.
If you were to go back through the forums and look at the end of every December, you'll see people posting about the same situation.
I am almost facing the same situation, though not as dramatic as yours. Apart from weekend dip there are holidays ahead and may be the situation will improve in the new year now.
Mine has only dropped slightly so far, but it does go up and down a lot due to various factors.
Everyone is trying to get the stupid pictures for their Christmas Cards to one place on their computer and then onto the paper to print the whole thing.
That's my sad story.
Must admit it was so sad to see the earnings drop after such a stellar month. The only kid who cares, will be here in a couple of days and will weep with me
My traffic was picking up last month, I think the slowdown is Christmas. In my area of the NW U.S., we lost a whole weekend to ice storms where you couldn't drive, and then another day to the same thing. I believe traffic will return in January, when it's cold and boring, and all the Holiday activities are over. Well, at least after the big January sales.
My earnings too have dropped very badly perhaps it is due to holidays and festive season, so i am just waiting for January to let the traffic pick up again
Promising thought, Wilderness. The January sales are on Amazon too. I love online shopping, especially when stores are crowded. I hope everyone does well on Amazon after the holidays.
I have just hit a new 4-month low. Grim indeed... The sooner December gets out of my life, the better.
The good news? My stats are still better than what they were last summer.
I earn usually under 50 cents a day, which is very low, so for me it is actually a surprise when if I ever earn more than that.

My earnings have gone down by half as much per day in January, 2018. Did something change to the earnings program. My page views have not gone down though. So what's going on?

For the past few days my CPM rates have gone sky high- higher in fact than they were in December. Is anybody else experiencing surprisingly high CPMs? I thought I would find out before I got too excited.

Since my current balance in Google Adsense is nearly $150, I was expecting that I would receive a payment this month *Feb." But when I went and clicked "when will I be paid" this morning, this is what it said:"A payment will not be issued this month. Your unpaid earnings prior...

Has anyone else noticed a big drop in earnings since the beginning of the year? For the first week or so my earnings dropped down about 50%. The last few days they are down to just a few cents. What's up with this? There is no way to contact google about this, and on the...

All of my earnings across all platforms are up 8.92% from October 2010. Just considering HP, I'm up 5.1%. This is my second January on HP and my earnings have increased from January to January by 411%. This is how I judge whether or not my business is growing. On new platforms I expect to see...
