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.

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?

Guess it's due to the holiday season coming around, but although my views are still OK, my CPMs are half of what they were even a month ago. Anybody else seeing this, or is it just me?

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

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally gets huge bursts of traffic as it's popular in social media. On those days, I...
