This is starting to bother me, the concept that I publish more pieces that get a lot of hits, only to see the actual pennies-a-day figures drop. I know it's all about traffic and who sees what, but this is not only frustrating but a true concern. I put many, many hours into each article; researching, writing, editing, proofreading, laying it into the template, rewriting and more edits, formatting and of course, pictures. I don't expect my ROI to be high or even comparative, but publishing hubs that generate a good amount of hits (like my circus features) should not result in low daily earnings and yet, that's what's happening. The numbers keep dropping.
Hmmph. OK, rant over....
Unfortunately this time of year many advertisers are spending less money, which means that they are paying less for the ads on the page, so even if more people visit, you may be getting $2 per thousand impressions, for example, instead of the $4 per thousand impressions an advertiser might be willing to spend around the holidays. The CPM of ads can fluctuate quite a bit depending on things like the time of year, the subject of the article, which site it appears on, etc.
Thank you very much for sharing this. I was unaware about this.
Do you recommend to write seasonal hubs then? Is it helpful?
These natural fluctuations in CPM will happen regardless of the subject of the article.
Thanks for the info, Christy, I never have really understood all of this, formula-wise.

Does having many hubs count much to gaining more income in HP? I wonder how some hubbers have less than 50 hubs yet are deriving a good amount of revenue from good traffic numbers, while other hubbers have hundreds of articles and are just doing so-so income. I've noticed that updating and...

I am very new. I have 7 hubs. I have put all 7 hubs in as active channels. Google adsense results are zero dollars. I realize that patience and persistence is key but how do I make sure that everything is set up right to eventually make a profit?

I am so excited about completing my 30 day Hub Challenge. I have been writing on so many topics but I think my hubs will be written mostly on blogging and writing. I feel that I am good at that and I am also writing on other sites to get backlinks to my hubs. Yesterday I had wrote one article on...

I am curious if this is my computer, or if you guys removed the option of going past the 1st page of the see hub options on a hubber's profile page. I was just viewing the latest hubs of a hubber, clicked to the second page and got a really big google ad. I went back to try it again and the link...

Hi I was wondering if I have a hub on the 2nd page of google and I write many more hubs in the same niche there's a possibility of my hub on page 2 to come on page 1 due to dominance in a niche??
