Friday and Saturday showed the lowest Ad Program earnings I have seen in well over one year. It seems it could be just temporary though, as lately my earnings overall have increased. Maybe returning (I hadn't written here for some time, and just came back and made a few posts) jars the algorithm somehow. What do you think?
Traditionally traffic is a little slower in the summer months, as many people with young families often take their vacations while school is out in July and August. I noticed less traffic, but my earnings were the same. I am still fixing up a few older hubs for niche sites and haven't written new material for a while either. I think traffic will pick up in Fall.
Yeah. I realize the seasonal thing. I'd not have even paid mind to the dip it if it were not for two super-low days back to back.
I had two very low days too. I wondered if it was because of problems with some internet servers.
I had my highest in a while on Saturday. Friday was about average.
I think a lot of mine is to do with the weather and whether it is the weekend.
I've just recently had this - my earnings increased a few months ago, which was nice, then I had quite a good week the week before last...until last week were most of the days are under half that, if not 10% of what I had been earning....for only slightly lower page views. Any ideas?
Well since I posted this, my earnings recovered. However, I notice that various things affect the algorithm. If I put up a few posts consecutively is one, and also editing articles, plummets earnings for a short while. This weather is hell, and I am sure that has its effects at times, and holidays as well. It's probably a good idea to consider what has changed or what's going on, when earnings drop significantly.

Has anyone else experienced this huge drop in earnings from the Hubpages Ad Program? Throughout the month of September I was making a steady amount per day. Over September 24-25, my earnings dropped immediately by 50%, and are now consistently 50% less than what they were a month ago. If it were a...

I have a question about ad program. I was doing extremely well at first with ad program and CPM was fairly decent and then I had 2 record traffic days back to back that I was so excited to see how they would affect the earnings and the CPM dropped below half and I made squat from them. I guess I...

This month my CPM for the HP Ad Program is super low. It's been under $1.50 every day so far. And last month I had a lot of days where it was under $2. Wondering why that is and if it's just happening to me or if others are experiencing this as well.

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this always happen?

Okay-- here's my question. Stopped Hubpages ad program for experimentation. Within 2 hours, Adsense was finally paying decent! Was able to actually receive payment in one month because I hit the threshold of Adsense of $100.00. Super psyched finally! Last 3 days, nothing! Absolutely...

OK follow Hubers! I was wondering if anyone's earnings have bounced back yet from Fred or from HubPages changing the homepage's overall look? I am still earning under $.25 a day! I've lost 98% of my revenue per day for almost the last two months now. I was never making a ton of...
