I used to think that impressions equals earnings; why do I continue to see a big fat zero in my account despite having a few impressions in my earnings report?
Have you done what needs to be done at: https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/affiliate/ ?
Yes. Everything is set at active except Google Analytics. Is there something else I need to do?
Probably get more impressions.
Shouldn't I have some cents at least?
Are you using Straight AdSense or the HP Ad Program?
Are you sure, you have any earnings? May be just nothing?
I have zero earnings but I have some impressions. I thought impressions translated to earnings
I do not know what your CPM is, but with the number of articles you have it is possible you are earning less than one cent per day. If that is the case it is going to show up as zero.
Go to your account page, then earnings reports, find out the number of impressions per day and multiply it by your CPM. (That number is for 1000 impressions, so if you have less you have to use a smaller number.) If the total is less than one cent, it is not going to show up.
Thank you so much. This makes a lot of sense. I was scared that my efforts were in vain. And guess what?! I just made my first cent!! this will really encourage me to keep writing.
Congrats on that first cent! Time to start writing your next article. (I have not published in a few months, so I definitely can not comment on this one.)
That penny may not seem like a lot to some, but that does show that you have your setting configured correctly. Now just keep writing.
You only started two months ago and only have 5 articles published. It could take at least a year and a lot more articles before you'll earn some real money. And then they have to be found by the readers out there. But one cent could be the beginning of a fortune, so be patient LOL
Five articles is a good start. Make sure you update your articles.
What is CPM?
CPM means cents per thousand...it's the amount of money an advertiser will pay to have his ad show on your account. If you only have 5 articles it's likely you don't have Adsense yet...without adsense, you can't make any money. You need to have at least 10 or more featured good articles before you can even apply.
Really? But it's set at "active" in my earnings setting.
Did you have an adsense account prior to joining Hubpages? If you did, I think you would have to enter your publisher number into that page to get it to show up as active.
(If it is not active you would never have made your first cent.)
I opened an account after I joined Hubpages. Although each time I try to access it, it keeps saying they're in the process of setting up my adsense account. I don't really know what to make of it. But in my Hubpages earnings settings, it shows up as active.
What that means is that they have not yet approved you but have noted your application. Write more articles and wait and eventually you'll be approved. Remember, without being approved by Adsense, you cannot earn.
