I have the highest traffic I've ever seen but mediocre earnings. Why?
Nothing has really changed about my account and I get more traffic then ever, but my earnings are about 60% of what they used to be when my traffic was lower. How is that possible and why is it happening?
I'm seeing the same thing, and my CPM is at an all-time low right now. I'm also concerned that the ticker that tells us when our stats were last updated is gone.
Maybe advertisers are simply spending less now, but I really don't know. I hope things will pick up because this situation is not giving me enough incentive to keep up my efforts.
I said that in September when traffic tanked. The people talking about AdSense are right, the money isn't there like it used to be, but you'd think we'd have gotten a memo or something!
Being a new writer here this is somewhat discouraging. I am willing to stick with it based on the community here though.
yeah, i am having the same problem too. SOne of my hubs have high traffic but the earnings are just 50 cents per day. Disturbing....
If you want to increase your earning then you should choose keywords in your hub those are high in CPC only if your aim to earn from Google adsense. Go to keyword spy and search keywords those has high CPC. Normally law, legal and injury related keywords has high CPC.
I have done that and I think I've found my niche. It is technology and my best hubs suggest big commercial intent and the same hubs with the same keywords were doing great before. I don't think it's me this time. My keywords are great for CPC.
I read somewhere that last year Google's Adsense did not fare so well because advertisers have tightened their belts. So in response it seems that Google has lowered their advertising prices to maintain their client base. This would trickle down to us in the form of less earnings.

Having been with Hubpages for getting on two years now, and having penned 83 Hubs, I think it's time I threw the towel in. Over that time, I conscientiously stuck to all the rules and guidelines, and was rewarded by...
