Does anybody else see the Hubpages Earnings fluctuating?
I just signed up a couple weeks ago for the Hubpages Earnings program. While I am happy with the increased earnings, there has been a couple of times when I have seen what I have earned to see later in the day that it has decreased. Can anyone explain the fluctuation or am I imagining it?
If it has an asterix beside it, it's an estimate and can go down when they finally calculate the values, I believe.
My Adsense has decrease by about 16% but my Hubpages Ads have increased by about 22% since I first activated it.
It appears that Hubpages has had a slight increase in Google rankings as I have seen an increase of search engine referral visits of about 36% from the previous month.
I have noticed the same thing. I originally signed up for it and I made some extra money, but I have definitely seen a decrease in earnings from both my adsense account and the Hubpages ad program. I hope I begin to see an increase in earnings soon though.
Similar to adsense, the earnings are estimated at first and will fluctuate depending on the keyword worthiness, competition, and if there are any "click-throughs" that need to be factored in.
Half your luck :-)
I joined HP just in time for the 'Google Massacre'. Signed up for Adsense anyway. I was equally quick to join the HP Earnings program when invited, as part of their opening the program to all Hubbers a couple of weeks back.
I can't so far construct an honest sentence that contains HubPages, Adsense , Earnings, and an actual monetary amount. (OK, I'm exaggerating, I could cover a cup of coffee; instant, from a jar, that I already have in the house...)
So, not only am I not seeing any fluctuation. I'm not seeing anything at all.
(Only 13 hubs to date though; not ready to give up yet.)
Good luck barbergirl, and may all your future fluctuations be upwards!
I've written 15 hubs and have seen my earnings consistently go up until I posted the last one and I lost a few cents. Two steps forward, one step back, I guess . . .
Well I just recently started the hubsense program about two weeks ago I have seen a couple of dips in the income but nothing major. However my adsense account seems to have gone down a fair amount. I recall reading that starting hubsense would possibly impact your adsense income but its seems as what I am lacking on adsense hubsense has made up for. I noticed one day it said I had made nothing which was way off however I looked yesterday and there is money on that same day now must have been a technical issue.
I have a friend who writes for Squidoo and they told me that any time we write on the internet it is a gamble and its like pulling a lever on a slot machine.
Sometimes we lose and sometimes we win and this can be in regards to traffic and money.
They told me it is best to write about things that I find interesting and can stay motivated about because if I fixated on the highs and lows of the internet I would miss out on the most important part of the experience.
Keep writing and everything else will work itself out!
I think of it like the stock market and I don't really understand that, yet.
This sometimes happens outside of hubpages too, where estimated earnings are not always identical to actual earnings. It's just one of those things.
I wish there was some sort of thorough explanation somewhere.
While I have only been around here for about 4 months I see a pattern: when my impressions are down, my cpm is up; and when my impressions are up, my cpm is down. I can't quite figure it out, but I'm just going to keep writing and see what happens since I have been pleased more-or-less so far.
Great and congratulations
i just joined yesterday and i hope to see the earring like you did
wish my luck
I have noticed fluctuation in Hubpages earnings. And I too wonder why it is so.
thanks for all the answers.
I think what you see initially is an estimate, not a finalized number, so there's always a chance that it will fluctuate. I don't know that I've ever had the estimate go down, but it does frequently go up. In addition, my overall earnings have been steadily inceasing since I've become serious about creating content. (I actually have a few hubs comparing my earnings here to what I'm making on other sites like InfoBarrel and WebAnswers.)

I just wanted to know wheether everyone on Hubpages uses the Earnings Program? If anyone out there doesnt, can you tell me why?Just wondering whether one can earn more with the Hubpages Program or with just Google Adsense and Amazon.

Currently I'm signed up with Google Adsense and I've been debating whether I should sign up for the Hubpages Earning Program because I'm hesitant to give out my tax information. Or should I worry about this only after I have a decent amount of traffic coming to my hubs?

I signed up for the Earning Program a little over a year ago (before, I used to only earn through Amazon and Adsense) and while I am seeing earnings every day, I've only been able to reach payout twice. I've tried to update my hubs, use interesting titles and good photos, but I still find that my...
