    Jack and Jill have been up and down the hill 10 times already as the guage slowly stumbles up one side. I'm only amusing myself by observing and not really holding my breath over each cent increase, but it is amusing all the same.

      35 hubs in 2 months is darn good! Are you outright AdSense, or have you tried the HP ad program yet?

        I have to confess. Some of them are lenses which were transferred over and I've edited and republished them. I signed up for both. You?

          My experience has been, on a day-to-day basis:

          Straight adsense is feast or famine, usually being famine; being mostly click-based.

          HP ads program, on the other hand, is a steady diet; being mostly impression-based.

          I do better with the HP ads program. Your results may vary. smile

            Overall, simply said, it appears that I am making about 1/2 of what I used to per impression and/or click,  For whatever reason, the pay amount has declined.  I have followed various forum threads waiting for that sudden post from staff that says why our earnings may have decreased. 

            Now I am not talking about Panda, Grizzlies nor Gremlins here that run around the Google world.  I am talking about views, impressions and less earnings per.

      I haven't really tracked individual URL channels to identify winners and losers but I better start now so the reports become more useful. Thanks for the heads up on this.

    I'm not so confident in the hub pages estimates. My Google analytics is showing very different numbers as far as traffic goes. Doesn't hub pages base the earnings on page views? That's disheartening if true.

    Hub pages is even showing that I've never gotten search traffic before, yet I have.

    From other forums it has been said the HP counts views differently than Google Analytics.  Also, 40 percent of impressions goes to HP which is not counted in our Analytics account from what I have read.

    I experimented with stopping HP and going strictly Adsense.  I changed back to using both.  Adsense has a minimum payout of $100 and has a reputation of shutting down your account once you get close to $100 which means they also keep your earnings because they shut you down before you reach payout.

      I do get payouts from Google... It takes some time, but they do come and so far I have not been shut down.  I get money from HP and Google Adsense as I run Adsense on my blog and other sites as well as YouTube.

      I've never had my account shut down by Google...I've always been paid by them.

    Dale: It is all about CPM.

      Dale Hydeposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I am sure it may be that Linda, but I am not seeing it elsewhere.  Keywords should bring in the same amount anywhere on the web.....well, at least that is what I have always thought.

    Dale: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/111844    CPC and CPM  Not all advertisers pay the same.  We also split earnings with HP.  Not every hub will have same CPM/CPC

      Dale Hydeposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I do understand this, Linda, however, I simply have problems going from payout once a month, to every two months to now every three months based on CPM.  It does not matter to me overall because I don't look to HP to pay any of my bills anymore.  I used to rely on HP to do so, but it has become evident that this is not the route to go, lol.

      Again, views are there, but the coins are not.  My Google Adsense earnings on my blog have not declined at the rate things have declined here on HP.

    Views mean nothing since we don't get paid x amount per view. It is clicks on ads.

    http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/maki … y-HubPages

    While reading the information from the link, I found out that until a hub has 100 views, HP ads are not even placed on that hub.  Now I understand why some of my hubs don't have ads. Some don't have 100 views yet. Therefore that is more income I am missing out on.

    Dale, the reason why HP is going down and not your blog is because of tar getting and exclusions. AdWords allows heir customers to choose which site their ads will show on. It also allows them to set seperate prices to each place. If one website doesn't less to sales, they will lower their cost per click. Furthermore, perhaps due to ad location, people just aren't clicking as much on hub pages. It may also be due to many of the views coming from hub page users and not through search engines compared to your blog. All of those things factor into the CPM.

    I'll have a better feel for things in the coming months I'm sure. My Adsense was only just approved about two weeks ago. That's a little over a month and a half since the move to HubPages. It'll take a while for there to be a trend to observe.
