Why has my CPM dropped from 4.00 to 0.45?
In less than 2 weeks. Traffic is higher, but CPM is lower. I'm making less with more traffic!
It could be the same effects for the troubles we've all been hearing about lately. For most people, it's their traffic diving off the cliff. Yours could be a side effect of google or hubpages trying to fix something.
HubPages is not the only site with reduced CPM issues this week, for a few days my account at Yahoo! Contributor Network fell to $0.00 per thousand.
It came back up again Friday to the old rate. There may be something going on in various systems or it maybe that advertising revenue is falling so rates are being adjusted either way, it is not good and frustrating that there is no real explanation.
I wrote about CPM in one my Hubs. I know people who run several different websites and the ones they enjoy doing the most (fun stuff) seem to pay out less. If anyone is interested in topics that pay well they can use a CPM list I have published. It is not 100% accurate but it gives an indication to newbies about the value of different topics we handle and how competitive the topics are (revenue based) Please feel free to use it as a rough guide if you are trying to make more money through PPC http://whoisbid.hubpages.com/hub/What-t … e-internet

I started a new HP page: http://hubpages.com/@dangerouslydelish to focus on recipes- hoping to create a stronger brand compared to this account.I was looking at my stats and my CPM is 4-5x more on this account, compared to the new one. So should I transfer my Hubs from my new account to this one?...

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally gets huge bursts of traffic as it's popular in social media. On those days, I...

I ask because I am currently experiencing yet another traffic surge. I've gone from 200+ views per day to in excess of 1600. Yet the income remains pretty darn poor.I've brought this up more than once and I have to say that it's very very puzzling. In every other platfrom that I write on (i.e. my...

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this always happen?
