I was doing great up until the last day of March. April has been disappointing in terms of earnings, even when the traffic has somewhat recovered. Is anyone else going through the same dry spell?
I think that it depends on what niche you write in. I write gardening hubs and since the gardening season has begun, my earnings have risen considerably both last month and even more this month. If past performance is any indication of the future, my earnings will peak in May and then drift downwards through the summer and into the fall.
Earnings are usually low the first few days of a new quarter.
Yesterday (Saturday) wasn't too bad. Almost back to March levels. Usually it takes between a few weeks and a month for CPM to recover once a new quarter starts.
Yes, but it will be back, par for the course; it's the way the ball bounces and the cookies crumble. No worries.
Yes. But, it didn't last long. Overall, I am happy with the trends.
The drama. The intrigue. What will it show tomorrow about today? The decisions that must be made for May?
I wish Google or Maven would announce some sort of major advertising contract or blitz. That would make it easy. But nothing has ever been easy before, so why should it start now?
Meanwhile, I've noticed increased activity with AdSense the last couple days.
Well, sports fans. I've made my choice.
The HP Ad Program is kind of like the bond market: steady, reliable, predictable, seldom any heart attack inducing surprises.
AdSense is kind of like a typical NASDAQ day: erratic, no-holds-barred, unpredictable, both heart attack and euphoria inducing for any given day or at any given moment.

And today it's $16.68. How did that happen?I made payout recently, and I got the check last week. I was thinking I might make payout again this month, with a forty-one dollar total. But now it's clear I won't. How did my earnings since last payout get so drastically reduced overnight?

My September earnings on HP amounted to more than $1,300. That includes Adsense, HPads, and Amazon sales. IF (notice - big if) this continues, hubby will be able to retire soon, which has been my goal all along. Last November and December, I think I made around $1,200 for each of those months, due...

Has anyone experienced a real drop in traffic and revenue in the last two days or so?Since I've started writing again the traffic to my hubs was climbing steadily. The last day or two my earnings got halved and then halved again today. I'm down from 800+ views a day to somewhere around 300. I...

It's disheartening to work so hard only to see your earnings drop to lowest than they've been in a long time. For the past two days, they've been about half what I was earning daily in 2017 and even lower than they were in January! Has this happened to anyone else and will it pick up soon?

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 still need to be audited so I suspect they could change, but I didn't know if...
