I have been reading discussion topics about earnings but I am still not making sense of the earnings trend starting late last year.
Starting this year, I am earning a few dollars which is depressing. Looking at the traffic, I'm getting an average of 1000 views daily which was the case last year. Thus, I don't understand why earnings is different when the views haven't reduced.
Are there any other factors that determine the rate of earning apart from views?
Yes. Earnings fluctuate because advertisers may increase or reduce the amount of advertising they place on HubPages. They also vary the amount they will pay for such advertising.
So before Christmas, 1k views per day may be worth around $5, but after Christmas, the advertisers' budgets change... and so do your earnings.
Earnings as far as I know are affected by the CPM value and also the use of AdBlockers so you can have increased views but not get proportionate earnings.
The amount of online content worldwide is growing faster than the amount of online advertising. So there is more competition for the money.
Also, big websites like Google, Facebook and Amazon are grabbing a larger share of the advertising.
CPM's are rather low in comparison to same period last year. At least in my case.
I have witnessed too. The value is so slow compared to last year.

Just noticed this in the results for the weekend. Views only increased by less than 10%. (The weekend peaks are smoothed out presumably because normal weekend stuff is being done throughout the week now).

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...

I am experiencing record low traffic and earnings today as seen in my HP account. This all started with Panda 3.4 update and my traffic is going down and down. Any help for improving traffic and earnings will be highly appreciated.
