Can anyone tell me how the 'earnings' are worked out on here?

I can't seem to see any correlation between the views and the pennies earned each day, but I feel there must be something. Does it depend on where the views originate from? Thanks - ( and please explain as if I was five years old as I don't know too much terminology! )

As far as I am aware, there is no difference to your earnings based on where they originate from. Your earnings are calculated using the following formula.

(CPM * Your views for the day /1,000) *.6

CPM is the amount you get paid per 1,000 views. So if your CPM is \$2 and you get 500 views you would get \$1

The .6 is because for the money you earn from views, HubPages takes a cut of 40%.

Hope this helps

Thank you Robbie,I knew there had to be a formula, I just couldn't see what it was but I think that's because I wasn't allowing for the .6 division - I knew about it though so it isn't a shock.
