    Is there a conversion factor that relates number of views to payment on HP?

    Just curious. I know the more views you get, the more money is paid out.
    Is there a rough conversion factor? Is it close to 4 views per penny?

    From what I have learned in the forums it is from $2 to $5 per 1,000 views. Mine seems to be near $2 / 1000. My 30-day views from the stats page are pretty constant. Next, at the stats page I goto Earnings → Earnings Reports and look at Last Month. Then I do the math using my 30-Day views as a constant.

      I was getting around 3 per thousand views but noticed a drop in the last month. Have others experience this also?

      I think part of the equation is the value of ads that are clicked on. Unsure . . .

      Yes, the actual calculation is more complicated. It also depends if someone bought an item you may recommend say on amazon.
      I think it also depends on how long someone stay on your page. I heard once that anything less than 3 minutes does not count

    My last month is 6.6 views per penny earned as oppose to 3.7 views per penny in the past 10 months. This is a drop of almost 50%. Is anyone else seeing this drop as well?

      I am beginning to feel like hubpages is turning into airlines with their airline frequent flier miles... the value changes from day to day...
      How many views to make a penny depends on whim...
