    $$$ is pretty good. smile I believe the highest I've seen is $$$$$.

    I'm not sure what earnings range each $ stands for, however you can look up your keyword phrases at google.com/keywords to get a better idea of what they pay.

    But, make sure to only take into consideration 25% of Google's CPC (cost per click). For example, an advertiser might pay a dollar per click, but you'll probably only get around 25 percent of that, google will get the other .75 cents.

    And don't forget that hub pages get 40% of your page impressions.
    This makes CPC some way from what you get.

    The formula would be something like:

    CPC x 0.25 x 0.6

    So, in the long run, if your site had a google ad that had a cost per click of $100, you would average $15 per click.

    Note: Although hubpages publish their cut, google don't. It is an estimate from industry experts.
    So taking into account the fact a click on your site has a 40% chance of being credited to hubpages account your average return per click is roughly 15% of what the advertizer pays.

      Yes, but HP doesn't take 40% of each click. Just the impressions. smile Every click you get will still be about 25% of Google's CPC, you just will only have the CHANCE for getting clicks 60% of the time. Likewise, HP will only have a chance of earning for 40% of the impressions.

      That formula could be incredibly varied. I think it might work better for determining your potential earnings over time for a hub, but not per each individual click. smile

    Girly_girl09 I agree totally.

    That is why I said "in the long run". The formula stands true for large numbers (hundreds if not thousands of clicks) and is representing your share of the total revenue generated by your work.

    As you rightly pointed out hubpages takes 100% of the revenue when their adsense code is displayed. Due to the "luck of the draw" your actual revenue share will only approach the 60:40 splint after a large number of impressions.

    We should remember that our hubpages statistics records all page views, not just the ones with our affiliate code. Our 'Effective Page Views' would of course be 40% less.
