I have noticed that my traffic has stayed the same or gone slightly up this month, but my day to day earnings on the HP Ad program is steadily going down.
And only one figure has the * beside it so I am assuming all the rest are correct.
I thought HP Ads were impression based.
If so, why would my profits have been cut in half since the 4th of this month with more traffic?
Are the advertisers not paying as much this month?
Same here. View count increased yet earnings decreased, kind of like cut in half or more. Earnings were just about the same or even higher when the view count was half of what I have now a while ago. Something has definitely changed for worse, in my situation.
I know it can be frustrating to see ad rates go down. Ad rates are cyclical; fourth quarter (October, November, December) CPMs are the highest of the year. You are free to test using only AdSense; maybe your fellow Hubbers can give you an insight into how it's worked for them when they have tested this. In most cases, HP Ads do better.
Well they usually run neck and neck with me.
Right now for January there is a $2.00 difference for me between HP Ads and AdSense.
But I have had HP Ads beat straight AdSense before.
I just started back on HP Ads last year because AdSense alone was doing so badly and I wanted to give them a try.
Yes my CPM is quite low at present too. I think it was higher before Christmas because of high demand for advertising in the run up to Christmas.
January is a slow month for retailers so there is less demand for advertising and therefore advertisers are having to pay less for advertising space (supply and demand).

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April 1st Conflicker Virus? I was thinking these two things can't be so harmful to my...

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I understand that earnings are not final until final, but the most recent case was...

Since I've seen you here. One of your support staff found my account, so I retract my other thread. However, I'm still deleting your service off of my websites. Number one, your revenue reporting is AWFUL. The fact that you don't have all-time revenue on your site, or any possible way to access my...

I just wrote a Hub last week entitled "Adam Lambert Sexed for Success". It did quite well, in fact it receive over 1700 views in less than a week. (that's good for me, anyway). My overall ranking on hubpages as of this morning was 96. The article was ranked anywhere from 87 - 93 and the...

A bit of background first...I joined HP almost two years ago, did a bit of writing and then stopped for a long time. Then went back and got into the apprenticeship program. My hits, on average per day, were a total of 100. I know how much I'd earn from HP per day from that to hit...
