I’ve blogged in the past and saw better CPMs than this 10 years ago. My YouTube channel with almost 60,000 subscribers gives me a CPM nearly double what HubPages’ is. It’s with AdSense. My niche on YouTube is similar to my niche here.
Lately I’ve been converting my hubs into videos (essentially the same content but a different spin on it that makes it more appropriate for video.)
So what’s the deal?
It is probably being affected by the virus and how much advertisers are prepared to pay during this period.
See, but the thing is that my CPM elsewhere is much higher. It's only low on HubPages.
Google has been keeping more and more high quality ads on its properties including YouTube in recent years.
That means partners on non-Google sites get lower CPMs. HubPages is somewhat of an exception.
Solaras pointed out something interesting on another thread. Apparently, the new terms and conditions state that the 60/40 split occurs AFTER expenses have been deducted. Does anyone know if this has always been the case?
I've found CPMs to be fine, it's thehighly-unfafvored google traffic that is the problem.

Are we allowed to republish our articles elsewhere and keep the original hubs here in the mean time?

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...
