I have earnings of 1p today.... but no clicks.... this has never happened before, and I was wondering if anybody knows why this may be?
Not that I am moaning, an incredibly slow day for traffic this end.... so every penny counts, but just seems strange.
Prob a click on a photo within your blog !
from CPM ads. google also serves cost per impression ads.
That happens to me quite frequently. You may notice it more in the future. I wish you the best of luck in seeing more than just a penny tomorrow!
This is because of Pay per Impression Ads. These Ads per for every impression i.e. you get paid whenever these ads get displayed on your articles. But these are very paying ads. You may have to display these several thousand times to make $1.
I don't believe it's always just 1 cent, but it's usually a small amount, and I think it only comes from image ads (but could be wrong on that).
Not exactly 1 cent for every 1000 impressions since I just got 1 cent for only 99 impressions today. Maybe there might be some campaigns that pays per impression but this is not always the case.
Exactly ! Depending on the relevancy of your ads being displyed as well as the impression count within a certain time period, you earn without any clicks.
Right.... so I get 1p when somebody clicks on my photo? via google images is that mate? Surely not for a click on a photo on my hub? Because I have over a thousand slideshow views?
I dont think that it would be for 1000 impressions kmackey (although I do believe you, just that I am halfway between 5000 and 6000, so wouldnt make sense)
Right.... so kmackay is right and it is because of impressions?
Anyway, its only a penny..... probably dont really need to know.... if it was £1 I would be a little keener to work out why!
LOL..Well it always helps to understand the workings behind our earnings so we can improve it, right?
I've told myself that when I get to 100 hubs, which will be about another 6 weeks at this rate, I am not going to publish anymore until I have learnt as much about SEO as possible... and optimised every one to the best of my ability....
Then after 200.... I will try and learn even more, before going back over the whole 200 again....
Im still pretty new to SEO for content, old to affiliate marketing.... new to adsense for content.
But life is a learning curve, cheers
Don't stop writing hubs to learn. Learn while you write hubs.
Just check your account stats here and your google adsense stats, as well as your sales records if you use Amazon and Ebay. That will let you know if it's working and what isn't.
SEO and online marketing changes constantly. You can't learn it and then think you know it all.
Hubpages is very well optimiazed for adsense. I don't even try for adsense and make payout each month.
At 59 hubs you should know pretty soon if your hubbing style is compatible with making money. If that's your goal. I think it was somewhere in that range where I really started to see things take off.
Just keep writing because you never know what hub will be your money maker. I guarantee if you knew which three hubs (out of about 165) account for 40% of my hubpages revenue, you'd fall over. I never would have thought those would be the money makers.
Nelle - same here, pretty much. You can look at what I've written since I started and the ones that convert the best I just wrote off the top of my head.
Of course I've looked at why that's happened and improved on it but at the time of writing I really did just think 'ooooo I know what I know loads about' and that was it.
Congrats. I earn a few random pennies a day, somedays even more. Its great for those days when you have no clicks to still be earning "passive" income.
hmm, i got what you wanted to know but first show me a stream that is flowing uphill..
I used to have days like that. However, I can't remember the last day when I didn't have a click. However, I track the earnings to each hub and I generally have at least one hub every day which despite having no clicks still earns me money through the previously mentioned payment for impressions.
Actually got a late click last night worth $3, happy days !
As you are a pom is there a chance it was due to an exchange rate fluctuation? Maybe they now owe you an extra cent from a click yesterday?
Maybe I am just talking bollocks
Just 1 of my Hubs has earned me over $100 in 3 months ! It really is at times just pure luck.
how about some of my hubs have traffic but got no earning because of no or clicks from ads. lols
Same here my friend, note I have 46 hubs and that was the one that has earned about 85 percent of my earnings to date. To get the clicks you deff need to be writing about a popular product that people are going to click an ad to read more about. My tens machine hub also did well so this pirate is gonna now reinvent himself and start writing about gadgets. Doncha just love reinventions
Good to see Tinkerbell back btw, I hated that horrible doll lol !
lols I hardly recognize this you BC. Though I was looking at comments posted by you. So you really look like this now? Are you at your late 30's 40's or 50's? but your looking great still and you can still go on dates man.
Well I really like my Avatar thinker bell. Thanks
Lol cheers for allowing me to go on dates Mummy, I aint giving my age out tis rude asking ones age but you are deff on the right track. I am past my sell by date, but hey I might get a date at the old peoples home
Low spirits! that's no good! My bisexual side tells me you are a hell of a man !
I did think of becoming gay once as I have a gay friend, he would bend over backwards to help you out but then I just couldnt be arsed being gay, thought it wud be a bummer and a real pain up the ass
Never!Ican't. Always moving on. Getting kicked out of a lot of countries
You wouldnt get kicked out of Belfast we have anyone although its not really Belfast anymore as more Polish people live here now than Irish. I am taking Polish lessons just to feel like a local !
During my criminal days I always wanted to travel to Europe and set up a counterfeit press for U.S. Currency,where enforcement in theory would be more lax, I used to move alot of paper back in the day until the secret service shut me down,but I was always intrigued by Europe and the fact that countries are so close in proximity a crook like I was could've passed checks in Germany in the morning, bounced over to France, set up an art theft over lunch, and fenced the sculptures in Poland over dinner! Although I've heard prisons in Europe are kinda rough- I always wondered what kinda crook I'd have been had I been from Europe !! Glad I got out of that life but I'm still curiously wired for sneaky behavior, and I always wondered what could've been, plus Europeans seem like good people, and Europe is beautiful ! I have NO IDEA what this has to do with click rates, LOL but speaking of which my family is supporting me by buying stuff from my ads but I'm not making much money, anything in particular you make MORE off of ? Also, was my assessment of Europe even close? And one last thing, I have never met a nicer and more supportive group of people than the writers on hubpages, you guys have been nothing but nice to me since I joined 10 days ago, and even though I'm a horrible writer ALL the feedback I have gotten has been so encouraging and I just wanted to say thank you, I really appreciate the way I've been embraced and accepted by everyone, THANKS SO MUCH
If you signup for Adwords, you will have two options to display your ads i.e. cost per click and cost per impressions.
Most of the times there are those pay per impression ads, on your sites/hubs and those cents are from these ads.
I have an ad channel which has been displayed about 3000 times this month but no click there and it has accounted for 27 cents due to CPM ads.

Here's something for you guys to consider, and I am simply reiterating a comment I made on another post. You need organic traffic to your Hubs! Why? If you are using adsense, or any other monetization method on Hubpages, you will not, I repeat, you will NOT get credit for clicks on your ads from...

I have been a bit puzzled about the way Google Adsense pays. There is reference to page impressions and clicks. I know that clicks get paid for at various rates, but I am not sure about impressions. Does the number of page impressions bring in any revenue. For example, some of my articles get...
