Somebody recently wrote a negative comment on one of my articles. My article didn't reflect the flaws claimed in the review so I denied it. However, my cpm's have dropped dramatically. Is there a correlation or have others noticed a dramatic drop in cpm's?
CPM drops in January because it's "CPM blues" month where advertisers don't spend as much because they spent it all at Christmas in December, it has nothing to do with negative comments on your article, and yeah, I deleted a negative comement that attacked me for liking an anime and they didn't.
No, the comment did not hurt you. The CPM drop is universal, https://hubpages.com/community/forum/14 … -take-dive
Thank you, I was worried that a negative comment might hurt even if it doesn't reflect the message in an article. I don't really know how advertisers base the amount they bid on an author or article so I wanted to be sure that wasn't part of their reason. It's good to know that it will pick up again.
Thanks for sharing this link with me. It helps to get a broader idea of how things work when it comes to what is happening with advertisers and us.
Oh my gosh, I'm so glad that I found this post. My traffic is going up, up and my CPMs are going down, down. How frustrating!
But like Paul said in Paradigm's link, CPMs DO drop historically this time of year. I've been here over four years now and yes, January is always a low month. Advertisers are probably working out their new yearly budgets and recovering from the holidays. Good time to hunker down and write Some of my best earning hubs were written during this time of year!
Yes, it is frustrating but at least we have hope for the future! I never really paid much attention to when things went up or down before but this recent change sparked my interest in earnings so I was afraid we were going back down to where we were before the change. It does inspire me more to write when I see income rise. Glad you found this too. It helps to know you're not the only one.

CPM, as I understand it. is the amount an advertiser pays per 1000 impressions from your hub. I have noticed that the number of impressions that show in the earnings tabs is lower than the number of views. I am guessing...

It's exactly as the subject title states. Yesterday, I got roughly 100 more credited impressions but made roughly the same amount of money thanks to the CPM being lower.Is anyone else in the same boat as me?
