How can I increase or influence my CPM earnings in the Hubpages Ad Program?
Paul, I would choose keywords with higher CPCs. You can use the Google AdWords Keyword Tool (its free). Keep in mind though, they might be harder to rank for.
Lol, I wish I knew for sure. I've heard others say that the "competetive-ness" of the topic might be a factor (the more of a hot topic, the higher the CPM), but I doubt this is the only determinant. Others have said the quality of the content (in the advertizer's eyes) might play a part, too. I'm guessing this means having good keyword densities for popular searches, etc. I do use Google AdWords to do a bit of this.
I only have two hubs right now, but for some reason my starting CPM started at around $9.00 and has since climbed to $11.80. I honestly don't know why. It immediately struck me as suspicious because I've heard a lot of people mention that they usually get $2-5 CPM (but then again, I wouldn't be the one to know an accurate average because I'm really new to all this).
I've only been a member for 5 days. I haven't added any other hubs or anything... I'm trying figure out if this is just a "fluke" or something I can actually capitalize on.
I wish I could give a more definitive answer.

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?

This month my CPM for the HP Ad Program is super low. It's been under $1.50 every day so far. And last month I had a lot of days where it was under $2. Wondering why that is and if it's just happening to me or if others are experiencing this as well.

In the past I relied solely on Adsense to earn income from Hubpages, however this year I was able to finally open a PayPal account, so I signed up for the Hubpages Ad program. As expected, I saw a drop in my Adsense earnings, but now it's practically non-existent. I was earning a couple dollars...

I have a question about ad program. I was doing extremely well at first with ad program and CPM was fairly decent and then I had 2 record traffic days back to back that I was so excited to see how they would affect the earnings and the CPM dropped below half and I made squat from them. I guess I...
