    I'm new to hub pages and have just submitted my first article. I've signed up for the earnings scheme and activated the ad program and linked my PayPal etc. When I go to my balance under earnings, it comes up with 0.00$ but I can see that my article has had views. Could someone let me know why this would be, or give some more info on how this works please.

    I wanted to get an idea of how much money you earn per view, but as it says $0.00 but I have a total of around 40 views I'm slightly confused.

    Any help would be much appreciated!

      Your own views are probably being counted too.

    I do not know what your CPM is but you have probably earned less than a penny. (There is a potential for earning income here but you need many more impressions.)

    Look at you at your ad report to see what CPM (earning per 1000 clicks) you are earning.  If you multiply that by your visits per day is may be under 1c.

      Plus she said 40 page views, so maybe 20 or so impressions.

    Not only the number of articles but good traffic to them what ultimately matters. I am afraid you have a long way to go.

    Another rough rule of thumb is that if you are getting about 80 views or more you can get $0. 01 or $0.02 per day.  It is very less but it is the fact and can give you some idea as how many views per day you require to make a good money. Some senior and experienced members can give better Mathematics.

      Looking at views is nice if you want to see how popular a page is but should not be used when estimating earnings. Earnings are based on impressions, not page views. If you say that you have 40 page views, you may only have 10 or 20 impressions.
      Your daily income can be figured by CPM divided by 1000 times the number of impressions. If you have 80 views, per your example, but only half of those people that click on your hub actually stay on there long enough for the ads to load, you are only going to have about 20 impressions. (If the page is longer, full of important information, and is interactive, you will most likely keep the reader on long enough for the ads to load. If none of your readers have an ad blocker you can approach 60% of 80, or 48 impessions.)

        I thought I understood this, but it seems I was also in the dark.
        Thanks for the information.

          Glad I can help. I saw you mentioned again in HP weekly last week. I hope you are doing well and staying safe in your part of the world.

            I always miss those, I think I did not add a subscription to my email.
            I'll go and check, thanks again.

              Just checked, thanks.
              We doing fine here, just running out of things to watch, otherwise not so bad.
              I hope the world hasn't ended on your side too.

        Thank you for this information, I was confused with the difference between a view and an impression. So just to make sure I've got this right, if the viewer stays on the page long enough for the ads to load then I should get an impression? They don't need to actually click the ad?

        1. DrMark1961 profile image98
          DrMark1961posted 15 months agoin reply to this

          No, they do not need to click at all, just see the ad. To see how many impressions you have each day, go to your account page-earnings-earning reports and then click on filters (about halfway down the page, orange). Select "ad program" and it will tell you number of impressions, your CPM, and your daily earnings.
          As I mentioned above, there are good potential earnings here but you need to put a LOT of work into it and find out and write what your readers want.

            I am not the questioner. But thanks a lot for those valuable information, DrMark1961

          What Dr. Mark has said is perfect, but just views with no clicks would very likely lower your CPM. Ads are a mix of cost per 1000 views and cost per click. So if someone sees your cost per click ad and does not click you will not earn anything from it and therefore this lowers your overall CPM.

          There is no fixed ratio of the kind of ads that show on your page, it is the highest bidder that wins. This is probably confusing to some extent, but I needed to add that just loading ads does not always pay.

            Do we still have CPK ads on hubs? I was not aware of that. Thanks.

              All at networks use a mix, I don't see a reason why the Maven network is any different. I haven't seen any documentation for or against this notion, so I'm going to assume it's just like all other networks.

    There are various ways people can be on the page (view) and not see the add (impression) , slow loading times, ad blockers, not scrolling down to where it is etc

      Can we do anything about the ad blocker

        There is nothing that can be done. This is a setting on the viewer's browser. HP can encourage the block to be removed, but if the viewer doesn't do it, nothing else is possible.
