Have Your Earnings Gone Down In The Last Year?
This is geared more toward those who have been on HP for year/s and therefore notice long term trends, but anyone can answer for sure!
I've noticed in the past year that my traffic numbers have pretty much stayed the same as previous years, but I'm now earning about 1/4 of the money I used to. Has anyone else noticed this?
I personally will no longer write articles on here other than to direct traffic to my other sites. What about you?
You're not the only one who noticed this. My earnings drastically decreased from November 2015-present. This is beyond ridiculous if you ASK ME! Hopefully my earnings will be WHAT THEY USED TO BE. In the past, I was actually PROUD of my earnings. Now they are totally abysmal!!!!
Yeah, I hear ya! I used to be able to basically pay half my rent every month via HP, and now it's like not even good pocket money. It seems to be a trend that companies get to a certain size and go downhill Fast. This may be the death knell of HP..
my earnings had dropped since the stupid panda started, ever since, it takes me 5 months to reach the min payout
Although I keep on updating my hubs and they are all featured--but the earnings do not increase.
You have rightly pointed out that the traffic is consistent but the earnings have reduced in spite of the increase in the number of hubs that I have published.
Google's search engine penalizes hubpages as a content farm, so unless your content is the only one its search engine sees as an answer to the searcher's query or a high volume page that thus stays high in the rankings, yes, your content is penalized. Fewer visits equals less income.
Interesting question so I went and checked my stats - views increased by 8% approx but earnings only increased by 3.6% from 2014 to 2015.
For the first time in years (like over 5 years) I did not make payout..so the answer is a resounding YES.

For the past few days my CPM rates have gone sky high- higher in fact than they were in December. Is anybody else experiencing surprisingly high CPMs? I thought I would find out before I got too excited.

Hi All:I took a quick look and didn't see anything about this recently, so I thought I'd throw it out there. I've noticed that over the last few reported days my CPM appears to be down almost 35%. Now, these earnings...

Anyone else getting 10% of the earnings they were getting in December despite record-high views? It’s starting to get depressing.
