Why do CPM rates vary so much from day to day?
Does anyone else see substantial variances in their CPM on different days? I have had days where my CPM is over $15 (these were days with very low numbers of views) and days where the CPM is barely over $3. Anyone know why these vary so much day to day?
I think a lot of it has to do with which of our hubs are being seen most. If it's one where major keywords result in ad placements where vendors are only paying $0.10 it'll be a lot different than if we have tons of views for a hub where our average keyword is worth $15.
Google's cycles/updates, as well as who is advertising with them, probably also affects what ads are getting placed.
From what I have seen.. That my CPM fluctuates a lot depending on where my views are at.. Right now at 2,500 views a day average over the last month my CPM has been anywhere from $3-5 dollars.. When my views jump a day to 6-10K my CPM does drop but I have also noticed that on days like that I receive a lot of views from other sites other than Google like Bing, and Yahoo, and from forums, Youtube, and from spread of the word. Therefore these other platforms from my experience tend to lower my CPM than if I received them all from Google.
Either way your CPM will continue to fluctuate daily and this also depends on the ads that are placed on your hubs, and where the traffic comes from.

My page views are inching upward, but my CPM is creeping downward. Is this common? The crux of my reason for asking is that I'm trying to be realistic in projecting the future earnings of my hubs, and I've kind of...

Finally, after many months of constant updating, deleting, title changing, etc., etc. I am seeing real improvement. My hubs are now starting their "season", which is probably the main reason for this, but I...
