    Hi everyone,
    i am a bit confused. Where does the 5 dollars for every 1000 views come from?

    Hi everyone.   I'm a bit confused.  So I have read that for every 1000 views you can get about 3 to 5 dollars.   But take for example Mary Audet she was making 3800 per month according to hubpages and has more than 1 million hits.  1 million hits only equates to about five thousand dollars.   How is that possible is she was making 3800 a month. I understand that there are other programs she could have been involved in.   I am just confused can it really be around five dollars per 1000 views. That doesn't seem much.

    This is not a true statement, but a very generalized guess.  Some hubs make far more than others. For example a hub that reviews a product will likely make more than a short story.   Subject matter, number of views, clicks on ads, additional programs all of it come together to determine what you make.

      But the question isn't about an individual hub, but about the average over many hubs. For every hub that is stellar at bringing in traffic, there are often two that don't do so well.

    I've only seen the estimate of about $3 per 1000 views, and that has held true for my small hub collection too. It's just an average noticed by hubbers, and probably varies quite a bit.

    BTW, were you getting that figure for Mary from here: http://alocsin.hubpages.com/hub/The-Hig … onclusions ? That was sometime in 2012, and I suspect it's a different story now.

      Thank you Casmiro, yes I did but it always was at one point on the front page of hubpages.

    In my experience, the $3 - $5 figure relates to the average adsense or HP ad revenue per 1000 visits. On the other hand a successful product hub that converts well can earn hundreds of dollars per 1000 views from Amazon on it's own - so if you have a few of those it's quite easy to make much more than the $3-£5 average.

    Also, it's worth realising that the next traffic accolade is not until 10 million views so you'll have no idea how close people are to that unless they tell you.

    I've seen that "rule of thumb" mentioned numerous times 'round here in my time as a Hubber but in my own experience it doesn't seem to be very accurate...

      It depends a lot on what you write about and how commercial the topics are. E.g. An advertiser might pay 2 cents for a click to a website about dreams and  $10 for a click to a website that sells mortgages.

    I do not think this to be correct. I believe it is just a number that someone came up with and just spread throughout HP. I would think it would be closer to 3 dollars per 1000 views.
