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!
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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

Okay - It seems there was an update to the definition of our earnings. I cannot say when it occurred.Basically we are paid for pageviews. One payment per view of article, regardless of how many ads are delivered to the reader, unless they back out before the first ad is actually viewed. Then we...

This month my CPM for the HP Ad Program is super low. It's been under $1.50 every day so far. And last month I had a lot of days where it was under $2. Wondering why that is and if it's just happening to me or if others are experiencing this as well.

Some people have said they've turned off HP Ads and just use Adsense and actually make more money from Adsense. I'm considering trying that out and was curious how much more some of you are making just through Adsense. Fifty percent more? Twice as much? Triple? Quadruple?

Hi,I might sound silly for asking this question, but I could not really understand what CPM is (I read an article, but I'm not good with these things). I know it has to do with the impact that my articles have in terms of views. Although I don't know if "impressions" is the same thing as...

I noticed that CPMs are really low so I decided to just start a test where I would just be running AdSense ads only and it's only day one, only one data point, but so far I'm already out-earning my HubAds earnings.Anyone else running tests and seeing anything similar (or different results?)

I just activated my Hub Ad program early this week. I was able to compare my earnings with my sister's. I noticed that the number of views does not necessarily mean more earnings. Why is that? If that is the case, then what really determines your earnings from hub ad program?
