There are so many variables these days, it's even getting difficult to predict traffic patterns anymore; much less advertiser motivations, budgets, etc. However, I do expect 2018 to be prosperous for us.
I would think it would increase it because they would be desperate to get as many sales as possible to increase their bottom line. Here's my question: will they put more of their tax savings into advertising and will that benefit us?
Problem is, I haven't got a screenshot or anything, so can't give any proof. All I can say is that the figure was similar to the 31st's. Then a couple of hours later it had fallen. Strange. Not the end of the world, so I'll see what happens tomorrow. Traffic has recovered and increased over the last few days, so it's not connected with that.
This happened to me too, a few days ago. Because the drop was less than ten percent, I didn’t worry too much about it, but the figure did reduce an hour or so after my earnings appeared in the earnings report.
Want to know if you will make payout this month? Simply move the decimal point one digit to the right on your MTD total and you will have your answer. Works for me 99% of the time. (obviously this will only work today (first 3 days of month elapsed))
Meanwhile, I'm happy with the HP Ad Program; but I am really starting to become perturbed with adsense elsewhere. Those slackers need to get on the ball.
HoneyBB, I tend to agree. As for the tax mystery mess, that's a whole different discussion.
This is my "down" season, so I have been surprised at how good my earnings have been. Last month I doubled what I had done the previous year. I don't understand how Adsense works. It can't be based on page views because last month my views were half of what they were in July, yet I earned just as much.
I have said this before and will say it again, I really think Adsense income is based on topic. They can't make much money off of op ed pieces but certainly can do well with hubs about popular hobbies such as fishing, tennis and the like because there are so many products that can be sold for those topics.
I happened to hit a niche that falls into that category, but it was purely by accident. If I knew enough about another one, I surely would write about it!
One thing I have noticed is that Adsense will pay low randomly for a few days here and there, but then will come roaring back with really big pay days that more than balance the low days. So, if you use Adsense for a week and get low earnings, it might be because you've hit one of those financial dips. Something to consider.
My earnings in January are half of that of December Still enough to make payout, but still. You do get used to the high earnings. Hopefully it'll pick up again; I heard January is one of the worst seasons.
My CPMs are still double what they were in October, although I've dropped quite a bit to what they were in December. I guess I knew it wasn't going to last forever but it was pretty good while it lasted.
Just wondering if there are certain months when adsense earnings are not that high for whatever reason,i have had a good 3 months of steady increases and have published at least 5 hubs so far this month and my stats are...
Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I...
I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April...
I seen a recent post where somebody said January was really bad for them. Many other people also said January is a bad month for adsense (generally) because advertisers are not paying as much since its Post-Xmas.I...
Why do the number of hits on my hub keeping changing. I view the hub hits in the morning and there one number then I view my account later in the day only to find out the numbers have been redistributed? How to...
