I need someone to explain to me what Page eCPM means. Sometimes that number is really big but my earnings will be like 2 cents. Is that the amount google makes the eCPM? Do I need to change some settings or something? Why do they even put that on there? Anyone that can help thanks so much.

Effective cost-per-thousand impressions (eCPM) is a useful way to compare revenue across different channels and advertising programs. Essentially, effective CPM represents your estimated earnings for every 1000 impressions you receive.

Effective CPM doesn't represent how much you have actually earned -- rather, it's calculated by dividing your earnings by the number of page impressions, then multiplying by 1000. For example, if you earned \$0.15 from 25 page impressions, then your eCPM would equal (\$0.15/25)*1000, or \$6.00. If you earned \$180 from 45,000 impressions, your effective CPM would equal (\$180/45,000)*1000, or \$4.00.

Extremely Clever Punishment of the Mind. It's google's way of letting you know you're crazy. I have looked at that number too and it seems to have no relationship to anything.

I`m confused by all this jargon. All I can deduce is that I joined 5 weeks ago and have made \$0.27. Gonna take some time to hit the \$100.00 mark huh?

Not necessarily, pick the right subject and keywords and get your hub having some backlinks and traffic and you can find just one click makes you a lot more.  One click over the weekend on one of my hubs generated me US\$3.50.  Now, wouldn't it be great if every hub I have generated that much every day!  But they don't.

But plug away, look at keywords and the 1001 other bits and bobs people tell you about and over time you can improve one or all of your hubgs, bit by bit... plus adding in new ones using the tricks and tips you learnt along the way.

We all start off slowly, the winners are those that keep going, not those that sit and say "I made a lot of money", everybody who just keeps going is a winner by default.

Good luck!

ty both for your help. I think I understand now..lol

Rick - It takes time and lots of hubs. I have not made it to \$100 yet and have almost 50 hubs and have been a member for about a year. I dont write that often either though. I do know that if you want to make money you just have to write...good stuff though. Stuff people want to read or find helpful in some way. Dont worry you will get there.
