One of my hubs is getting lots of pageviews but rarely get an ad click. My other hubs are getting much lower pageviews and yet generate some bucks.
Any advice? Thank you in advance for the help.
hmm...i wish i could see the hub. i know you can't post it here but maybe you could give a clue as to the topic? i shot myself in the foot with my latest hub, saying how pricey some of the things are that i was hubbing about. i'd better change that...
Having traffic does not necessarily equate with high earnings.
All those photo hubs get a lot of traffic from readers who just want to look, however they don't earn much as why would anyone click an ad if all they want to do is look at pictures?
No, I'm not saying that. In fact, didn't I just say that picture Hubs don't earn much?
What I said was, why would reading down the list that you wrote make the reader think they needed to click on the advertisements on that HubPage?
Ads are primarily based on your writing and your choice of tags.
But also remember that 40% of the time (randomized), the HubPages affiliate code is attached to your Hubs, and sometimes really different ads can run at those times from what shows when your affiliate code is in play.
I tend to feel, however, that it's the author's writing that really makes or breaks a Hub.
This is your PTC hub, isn't it?
If you looked at my PTC hub it is displaying highly relevant ads. The Current Events topic I was talking about is getting twice the traffic of my earning hubs yet the lowest of the ad clicks.
Why would anyone need to click ads if all they are looking for is info on current events?
I don't write about current events as they require a lot of upkeep, followed by a lot of drop-off once they aren't current.
But really, if someone wants to read about current events, how would that drive retail sales or encourage them to click on ads?
You can write about whatever you want, but I pay my rent with HubPages, so I tend to be a tad more focused on evergreen Hubs that earn.
Write more and more hubs. One of my hub earn me $1 today. after month. If you write more hubs then you will earn daily and regularly.
I like hubs because after adding you will get money for many years.

This is disconcerting: I've diligently tracked all Adsense revenues from my hubs for a year averaging roughly > forty five cents a click.In the past couple of months (since the new Hubpages ads option has become available, which I personally don't use) my adsense clicks average a lousy ten...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...
