Finally, after many months of constant updating, deleting, title changing, etc., etc. I am seeing real improvement.
My hubs are now starting their "season", which is probably the main reason for this, but I also think it's because I have tried to get all updates in place prior to the time when people would start thinking about traveling and vacations. My CPM yesterday up 40% over what it has been, so I am hoping for a few months of good things.
I never get the big views that some people here have, but I can see things moving forward. Just two weeks ago I announced I had hit 400,000 and today I'm already over 412,000. Keeping my fingers crossed that by summer's end it will be over half a million.
Nice one! CPM has been steadily rising but still has not reached previous levels.
The one I saw today was high for this time of year. In the summer months my CPMs easily are three times the norm here, so I'm very happy to see this one. For me, views rise on the weekends then steadily fall during the week, but they already are quite a bit better than they were last year at this time.
Views are up 18% for 2016 over the same time span in 2015. Me like!
Same here, CPM up 50% since last week and one of my hubs on Dengarden has daily views exceeding the levels it reached in May 2014. Google had pushed it from page 1 down to page 4 as a result of Panda changes over the past couple of years, but it's now edging back to its former position in rankings.
Something positive is happening, that's for sure. For me personally, fully 67% of activity in April is in the last 7 days.
Yesterday's earnings just arrove. The good karma indications continue.
It's been a nice month thus far and CPM rates are steadily rising. How high can they theoretically go? Is it 2-8 per 1,000 impressions?
It can go considerably higher than that, and mine have in the past during my high season.
You know, I have never paid attention to CPM. I just checked out mine. In the distant past (2012) I had a day of over $21.00. Mostly I am in the 4 - 8 range, which I gather is normal. I never gave it much attention as there seemed nothing I could do about it. An interesting stat though.
+1 Seeing the same, TIME. Good for you. I haven't seen it this steady in a while. I have to thank the niche site for giving my hubs overall, a nice boost. Something definitely is happening.
Indeed. Something is happening. And it's about time.
I think we can chalk any turn around on the site(s) to Paul Edmondson's persistence.
It's been almost three years? since Mr. Edmondson plainly asked Google, "What do you want from us."
He kept asking and asking and got some answers from people who are no longer at Google and now it seems someone has given him an answer that corresponds with site treatment.
I'm happy to see the HP team's persistence and unconventional approach to a very big problem has been rewarded. It appears the site is moving outside of any penalties and that's great news for online writers everywhere.
There's some damned good writers here who've been writing for peanuts and any positive changes are well earned.
I agree. I am most happy for the HubPages team. This is a little side thing in my life that I dabble in. For the HP team, it's their careers. They have worked hard for this success. I hope this brings them big bucks, big bonuses and a happy future. And, of course, we can benefit from a little extra cash ourselves.
CPM still showing promise. My planned exit to straight AdSense is now on hold.

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...

It seems to be almost down to the level it was last year and never recovered much since the start of Q3. I reckon though it's probably because I'm getting a lot more views with lower CPM in addition to views with high CPM plus backouts from pages before ads load. The result is that it's pushing the...

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.

I ask because I am currently experiencing yet another traffic surge. I've gone from 200+ views per day to in excess of 1600. Yet the income remains pretty darn poor.I've brought this up more than once and I have to say that it's very very puzzling. In every other platfrom that I write on (i.e. my...
