Does the number of impressions affect CPM? I just noticed that after a large surge of impressions at the weekend, CPM dropped to its lowest value ever and hasn't improved much since. Is this something to do with pages running out of bidders, so in the bidding system, those with the lowest bids win?
I have experienced the same phenomenon this month after there has been a surge in my impressions over the past two weeks. Most of the impressions, however, are for only one of my hubs.
Bad as it might seem, I have a different opinion on such things. I feel that if you put my "stuff" where I am getting a lot of impressions, then shame on me for not having a Hub that takes advantage of this.
I fight so hard with my Blogs to get exposure that these increases are fantastic.

I was shocked this morning that despite posting a new hub last night my hub profile score had dropped from 96 down to 88. I posted in Hubber's Hangout and it turns out that I am not alone because other hubbers have their scores going down and some are reporting by a figure of at least 8 same as...

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...

Haven't experienced this so I am just asking. Is it possible to earn from impressions?Is it possible to earn from expressions only or is it needed to be clicked on the ad to earn?

My CPM's and traffic keep dropping more and more every day. Is it just me? Didn't Paul say the increase in traffic and CPM's would immediately start or did I misread something?
