Just wondering if hub pages ever pay you for page impressions. if not are there any sites one can get paid for page impressions instead of just clicks??
Yes, here's more information:
You only get paid for page impressions if they convert over to clicks. There might be other sites that allow you to just earn on page impressions, but I doubt they would pay much.
So, why not get paid just for page impressions? Well, if you were an advertiser, would you want to pay for the ads people saw or the ads they ignored? Logic follows that a click at least shows some interest and a lack of a sale after a click shows a possible need to change the marketing strategy. An unclicked link doesn't help the seller at all, as he then must wonder if it was ad placement, a competitors ad, or lack of the right traffic that caused the misses on the link.
Another way of looking at this is from a salesman's point of view. Salesmen get paid a commission for selling products, not pointing people to the restroom or discussing dear ole Aunt Berth'a bowel surgery. As such, we profit when we write a hub that directs in traffic that clicks that link - just like a salesman profits when the lead a customer to a product and heave them purchase it.
The magic of adsense is that no purchase is necessary - you just need to lead the reader to the link. The only problem is you can't point at it or point it out - you need to stay neutral and hope the reader sees the link and clicks it.
To that end, you must use your keywords wisely to target the audience that will arrive to read your hub - or do as I do - write what interests you and see any profit as an extra bonus. Oddly enough, many profit more when not trying to do so, as they focus more energy on the hub than advertising, which helps drive in the crowd - and statistically speaking, there is a buyer in every gathering.
Thankfully, we never need concern ourselves with finding out who it is - we just need to write something inviting enough to get them in the door.
Now, I'm confused because I thought I read somewhere on Google Adsense that they pay for both impressions and clicks. I do think that they pay for impressions but like at a very low rate. My first month on hubpages I got credited in my adsense account for like 30+ impressions and earned one cent. This month I got my first click, which paid much more money fourteen cents.
You occasionally will get paid tiny amounts for impressions.
You'll know this if you track all your hubs individual, by URL in google adsense. (Add a new url channel for each link to track)
Sometimes, you'll see earnings next to the channel, but no clicks - these are from impressions.
They don't happen often (especially if you have limited traffic) and don't pay a lot.
I make a few pennies a day from adsense impressions. I'm not even sure why google pays them, but I guess it is something
Obviously clicks pay much more! (Typically...)

Please forgive my ignorance, folks, but I'm really not sure that I understand how Adsense works. I can see that clicks on Ads give you cash, but why is there also a running total for "impressions"?Firstly, what is an "impression"? Is it the posting of an Ad on your page? Or has...
