Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know that we are testing the promotion of some NFL related content from our pals over at Maven today, so you may see a football hunk or two during your daily scroll. We are working towards bringing our readers a better, more enjoyable "Recommended Content" experience, so stay posted for updates and more!
Does that include getting rid of recommended content I saw today such as "Men in lingerie" and "What men think about public hair on women"? Asking for a friend.
I'm not complaining, but I still see Related articles, cleared cache a few times and stuff. Appreciate the heads up.
Wondering when you'll be testing promotion of our content over at our Maven friends site. I have yet to see a single referral from Maven though there are still plenty of links from us to them.
Excellent point Natalie.
All one way traffic at the moment...and not to us, by the seems of it!
I also wonder when we will be on the "take" side of this give and take. If this has already happened, maybe share more about that.
Higher CPMs than a few months before the merger. Just before the merger, HP began to use Maven technology or techniques or whatever from a thread I remember. Paul had posted about this back then.
There has been a history of vague comparisons between not really comparable things. That is more a statement of faith than actual information. Like, how much higher, compared to the same time last year? That would be information.
Why don't you compare your own stats? I'd love to have data from the team too, just answered your question with my statement.
I know that this summer was the highest CPMs I've ever had. When I first joined I had amazing CPM and then it went down to 1/7th of that value, but his summer it exceeded this original by 20% and I'm not talking small numbers, we are not allowed to talk specifics, so I can't say. Think a score.
But the question is: Higher CPM and lower traffic or higher traffic and lower CPM. I wish it was a high of both.
The way HP uses Maven technology should be the same way the Maven uses HPs knowledge. Build their sites up well instead of trying to leech off us.
Forum thread where I reported my stats since last Jan.

My CPM has gone down significantly practically every month for the past year including last month even as my views have gone up consistently, as I reported in another thread.
I was wondering the same thing, however I think most of Maven's sites are lacking in quality and I wouldn't want links to my articles placed on them anyway. The way their pages are currently set up would also mean that they would need to do some restructuring unless they wanted links to other sites below their articles in the "stories" section which currently only has articles from/for the specific page you are on.
At least this time around it seems the links are only on the how we play niche site. This is at least where I would expect to find those types of recommendations. Have not seen them anywhere else at least not yet.
I do have traffic from the maven.net in my Analytics. But it's not a lot. We are the ones with the traffic eager to share after all.
Thank you for the heads up. But, there are some valid questions that need to be answered. Maven needs to refer as well. I am sure some of us write about the NFL and lingerie (at least fashion).
I may have to correct myself. The Mavencoalition that shows up on Analytics also refers to sources from the niche sites I presume. Because from the day the mavencoaltion stats show up, I have no referrers from Dengarden or Caloreibee or Owlcation (my usual referral sources).
I noticed this in Analytics too and was confused because the hp stats only show the niche sites. The numbers are very similar though. Google Analytics shows 2 higher referrals (for mavencoaltion) than what I can find on the HP stats for niche specific traffic, but I think they could be the same thing?
Someone pulled the trapdoor 'neath this thread pretty fast, lol.
Looks like we are in for a period of wild experimentation. I'm expecting 3d printed guns, ganga holidays in Toronto and a trip to the chocolate factory...
Also a return of traffic, at the end of it all.
Wouldn't that be nice?
