Ad program stopped generating money!

    Hi....So, I signed up here about 2 weeks ago, and have made about 17 articles, all of which are featured and there are no broken links or any issues that I've found....
    And when I go see the daily clicks...it's been rising. In the past 3 days I've gotten about 60 clicks or so....

    But for some reason, my earnings have stopped. Every day I check, it keeps saying I have no money earned that day...when I knew that yesterday I had at least 20 clicks. I don't even earn the pennies I used to earn.

    What is going on? Can someone explain if this is normal, or if I have to contact someone for technical services?

    Responses much appreciated.

    Thank you smile

      It takes a long time to start earning money on HubPages.  Give it more time and keep writing quality articles.

        yes but the problem now is that I used to earn pennies when I had clicks..but these few days, I get even more clicks (but no money) than when I had less clicks and some pennies.

        It makes no sense.....hmm

          You need more than 20 views per day to see any money. Some of those views may even be your own.

      Patience is a virtue. Concentrate on building audience first and revenue second. It took me a couple of years to get meaningful revenue, but the effort was worth it.

        I completely agree and understand, I was just curious. I am not even really here for money..I have other jobs that bring in money, I write articles because I enjoy it. I love writing. I just wanted to know if there was a technical problem.

        Curiosity killed the cat? heh.

      I assume you know that there is more than one way to earn money here.  One is through page views.  The other is via ads you place on your hubs...assuming they are correctly and legally done.  I've had days where I get nothing from page views, but do make money on Amazon sales.  Of course, the more people who read your articles, the more likely you are to get ad clicks..and by the way, people have to actually buy something from Amazon before you can make any money on an ad.

        I don't get any money from anything but page views atm. Thats why i was wondering why i wasnt getting any money when my page views were actually increasing per day....it doesn't add up.

    Theraggededge, 20 views must be per article or all articles combined?

    1. theraggededge profile image97
      theraggededgeposted 9 months agoin reply to this

      The OP just says 20 views. I would assume that is the total. Nowhere near enough to be generating ad income, esp as some of those views may be her own.

    If not ad income, what about income per impression?

    Your ad earnings are also based on CPM. On days when it shoots up, even a few views would earn you 1 or 2 cents. On days when it's low, you'd need a lot more to see even 1 cent.

      This probably makes the most sense. I did start earning again..so it's definitely a technical issue.
      I guess it just is how it is...whatever method they generate money...is a little of a mystery...but my complaint was that it might be broken - and yesterday and today confirmed that it's not...so no worries!
      and thanks!
