Please let me know as to whether our CPM is affected by the niche we have selected or otherwise. I have observed that many of hubbers are having high CPM.
Multiple factors can effect your CPM rate, not just your niche topic, but yes, what you write about has a big effect.
It means there are also factors which can affect our CPM.
Well of course. CPM is how much an advertiser will pay to appear on a page with some words you chose. It will be affected by everything from how the economy is doing to how well you selected your keywords and quite possibly the phase of the moon.
Here are some quotes from the FAQ:
"What are impressions?
As it relates to online advertising revenue (and the Ad Program), an impression typically means an "ad impression", and occurs whenever an ad appears on a Hub and is presumably seen by a visitor.
With regards to your Ad Program reports, you are paid based on "page impressions," which are Hub views. Each page impression can include up to 4 individual ad impressions, depending on: the ad level setting of the Hub, the length of the Hub, and whether a given location has "time" to show an ad in case the viewer navigates away from the Hub. The CPM for an individual is determined based on the value of individual impressions based on traffic characteristics.
What does CPM mean?
One of the online advertising payment models. The acronym means "cost per mille," and advertisers pay for every 1000 impressions of their advertisement. This is a dynamic number based on what advertisers are willing to pay to show their advertisement on a specific page at any given time."
"Does our CPM depend upon our niche?"
One would think so, but maybe not really that much? This has to do with the advertiser cookie practice of posting ads relating to where the visitor has been previous to their arriving here. My hub topics are scattered all over the map, yet I'm a happy camper as to CPM. Write what you love.

What is CPM? When looking at the hubpages earnings?
by Marcus T Caine 4 months ago
I have noticed that whenever I have a day when I have lots of impressions, the CPM is very low. On days I have a few impressions, the CPM is $22. Why is that?

We have visited this topic at least twice before in recent months and I continue not to understand it. No matter what I do or how many views I get somehow I always earn between $1.25 and $2.25 a day which averages out to just barely enough to make payout each month. This was the case...

Views continue to go up, CPM and earning continue to keep going down to where i'm barely over a dollar a day and haven't a chance in hell of hitting payout this month. I can't help getting the feeling that some kind of funny business must be going on as no matter what explanations are being...

How many page views does it take to create $1 ?Now; I realist that page views and hub revenue is not 100% directly proportionate, however I wondered what people found is generally the average revenue generated from a certain amount of page views, I have a rough idea it might be around;400 pages...

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.
