    I realized that the total CPM is around 15USD but only have 0.44USD in my earnings. Isn't fair and don't understand why! Explain please

      CPM is per thousand impressions. You only get the full amount if you have a corresponding 1000 impressions.

      And the usual:
      - Not every view is an impression. High bounce rate, Ad-blockers, etc
      - Some goes to HP.

        1000 impressions means thousand views?

          Hi welcome, I wouldn't worry too much about earnings yet, it will probably take at least a year before you earn anything. Just keep writing.

      I started to earn impression recently. But very little. CPM is very low. But I am very happy, because my effort here is also very little.

    I do not think you have even had 1000 impressions yet. If you want to earn here, get more page views by writing articles that people want to read.

      I started few days ago... You mean if I get 1000 impressions, I will earn fill CPM amount?

      1. DrMark1961 profile image97
        DrMark1961posted 9 months agoin reply to this

        Yes, you need to get 1000 impressions to get the CPM. Since you are just starting out it might seem like a lot, but as you write more and your articles improve you will be able to get that many in a short time.
        The important thing is to write more and make sure that each of your articles answer all of a potential readers questions on the subject.

        Hi Jones:

        Welcome aboard. This is something that took me a bit of time to understand about impressions vs. views.

        Views are visits to your page.  Impressions are how many times a visitor sees the actual ads on your article.  There could be 5 ads on your article and if the reader has no ad blocker and reads the entire article,  you would receive 5 impressions for that one visitor.

        Sadly many folks do have ad blockers, and they will block all of your ads, and you will receive zero impressions for their visit, no matter how long they stayed and loved your article.

        Additionally, if they find something repellent about their initial view of your article, and hit the back button before seeing any ads, you receive a view, but zero impressions.

        Additionally, we split the income with hubpages.  They take 40% of the impressions and we get 60% or the impressions, at the same CPM rate.

        Long story short, you can easily have 5000 views and only receive credit for 1700 impressions, after accounting for those who bounce (hit the back button immediately) had ad blockers, and HP's percentage of the revenue.

        Feel free to correct me if I have something wrong here.

          DrMark1961posted 9 months agoin reply to this

          I think you have explained it very well. I usually see from 2000 to 2500 impressions per 5000 page views and I do not think I have ever seen it as high as 3000/5000, which is what we are potentially paid.

          1. EricFarmer8x profile image99
            EricFarmer8xposted 9 months agoin reply to this

            For me it seems about 35% - 40% percent of views equals impressions.

              Are you getting a lot of views from social media? They seem to pay less or not count as impressions (I have seen huge surges with FB and sites like that, but when I check the number of impressions/earnings the next day there is almost no change).

          Good clarification. To be honest, my understanding of this issue was vague even after being here almost a decade. I kind of knew it had to do with whether visitors were letting ads load, but your explanation makes it very clear.

              Please I want to ask you if you get thousand impressions and  it continues to Increase, is it calculated per month or the impressions will keep increasing which will be used to calculate your earns every month? Example, June's Impressions was 1000 and July had 200 impressions, how will July earning be calculated? Will it be 1200 or 200 Impressions?

              1. DrMark1961 profile image97
                DrMark1961posted 9 months agoin reply to this

                It is cumulative. If you have 1000 impressions one month, 800 the next month, and third month you have 1000 again, when you have hit payout ($50 US) you will be paid for 2800 impressions.

                    theraggededgeposted 9 months agoin reply to this

                    Impressions aren't cumulative. If you only have 200 in July, then it is 200 for that month. If you don't earn payout, then the earnings for that month are carried forward. The next month's earning are then added to that figure. If you reach $50, you will get paid at the end of the following month. You are going to need a lot more articles to reach payout.

                    Tip: be wary of filling the comments sections of your articles with fake responses. It won't help you in the least. Neither will congratulatory comments from the authors themselves. It makes you less credible.

                    That 'How to Blog Successfully' article isn't formatted properly.

                    Here's a good place: https://hubpageshelp.com/ The materials there are good examples of how to write and format an article.

    I would suggest you look into other articles on here and how to properly set them up. However your writing does have potential, those subjects you are writing about probably aren't going to get that many views...try writing a broader subject that anyone might be interested it also helps to use the tutorial page setup, break up your articles into sections for easier reading . Good Luck.

      Okay I will, I appreciate the gesture... I will look into that for my articles. Hope you can write beyond the five startup articles?

  4. theraggededge profile image97
    theraggededgeposted 9 months ago

    They are definitely saturated topics. As a professional blogger, I expect you know that. Your HubPages article has to compete with all the big boys out there, so you might need to rethink your approach in order to impart information that is not already available. Otherwise you aren't going to make that coveted Google first page results.

    Edit: This line in your panic disorder article is incorrect: "Panic Disorder is a situation where an individual experiences constant heart attacks, fears, irritations, sudden emotional worries and pains."

    Not heart attacks. Not constant. As a person with a degree in 'psychological health science', shouldn't you be aware that the information is erroneous?

    When you get 1000 views, the CPM amount is received fully?
    What if views exceeds thousand? What happens to the calculation of earns?

    1. CYong74 profile image97
      CYong74posted 9 months agoin reply to this

      CPM varies day to day, with your earnings calculated as follows:

      IMPRESSIONS/1000 x CPM

      Note again, IMPRESSIONS, not views. Not every view will be counted as an impression.

      Thus if you have 500 views on a day with CPM at 8.00. Your earnings would be

      500/1000 x 8 i.e. 4 dollars.

      Check your account page at https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/reports to see what's your impressions and CPM for the day.

      Lastly, I second what others said. Focus on creating better articles. You'd get the money when you get proper impressions.

    Today the payment rate based on CPM and other considerations (as already been explained nicely by Hubbers above) is much lower than what it used to be in Internet boom time. So today only those writers can earn whose articles are of high quality and are many in numbers.

    With mediocre articles (like mine) one can earn some money only when one has them in hundreds may be in 300 to 500 numbers ( besides poems etc). Useful articles like DIY,  repairs related, niche areas may fetch good traffic and that is the only way to earn. There are few writers who have achieved that distinction.

    The experienced Hubbers (Dr Mark, the raggededge, CYoung and others) may please correct me if my understanding is wrong.

  8. CYong74 profile image97
    CYong74posted 9 months ago

    Your earnings are calculated on a day by day basis, using that CPM formula I gave you. Once an amount has been credited into your account, you wouldn't be paid for the same impression again.

    In ither words, only your per day impressions matters in the calculation. The total figure at the end of the month is only a reference.

      Most of mine are Google, but for some reason the number of impressions was down (as a percentage of views) in August. As you said, the best way to deal with this is just get more views overall!

      When you reach $50 you will get paid. It does not matter how many impressions you have.
      Do the math though. You will never get to $50 without over 1000 impressions.

        Hello, please kindly assist me with this;
        I have configured my HubPage Ads program, Amazon program and Google analytics, meaning they are currently very active.
        I joined HubPages few weeks ago and now I have like 120 dollars earnings with 1000 plus page views. But what I don't understand is, do I need to get my own separate Google AdSense account before I receive my earnings?

        Looking at what some experienced hub writers have been saying in past ads program discussions, one needs a Google AdSense account before making money from ads. But I have configured my earning settings which includes activating ads programs, Amazon program and Google analytics in the HubPage earnings settings.

        I just don't have a separate Google AdSense account of my own and I have tried to sign up for one today but I am asked to provide my website address which is my HubPage address and was asked to continue my registration on the website I provided but when I log into my HubPage, I don't see any 'continue registration' there. Does it mean the earnings I have made, though my hub ads programs are configured and active, I will not receive my earnings?

          The rules changed recently. You no longer need a Google Adsense account.

          Any chance you could share a screenshot of your $120 earnings?

          I'm sure everyone here will be just as blown-away as myself to learn how you managed to achieve that organically.

      As a general rule, you really want to be getting at least a thousand views per DAY, if you are going to get a regular payout. Usually much more than that to reach payout every month, though it does depend on your subject matter.

    Jones, to be blunt. Many of us have already given you a clear rundown of how earnings are calculated here, and how money is paid. We have also assured you that money will be paid as long as you fulfill the mentioned conditions.

    Without offence, you're coming out with increasingly exotic scenarios that are based around wild calculations of numbers you may or may not be seeing on your earnings page. This is particularly appalling since some of your hubs are about blogging, but yet you don't give the impression you have any clue on how blogging/online writing revenue is earned.

    Whatever your intention, I sincerely hope you realize this is not going to get you any money anytime soon.

        This is very impressive, Jones. You’ve been here only six weeks, have written only six articles, and none of them have been switched to network sites, which most people find is necessary in order to earn a significant amount of money. In addition, your articles about blogging have comments from people with "HubPages" in their name.

        You should share how you’ve been so successful. I’m sure many people besides me would love to know. I looked for your article about creating a business blog in the first five pages of both Chrome and Edge and strangely couldn't find it. I'd love to know your method for earning money.

          I agree with Alicia.

          Can you confirm if this income is from organic views, or is it paid views? If there is anything dubious about the source of the traffic, such as bots, you may find those figures adjusted accordingly. This is why writers have to wait for their money.

          Can you please clarify for us Jones?

          Now, I am required to publish new articles and I have been working on them... I will keep writing more new articles, because I have been receiving mails from readers to write new articles.

          I am preparing for my postgraduate studies outside the country so I am usually busy.

          But for the traffic I am receiving currently, I believe it because I try to edit my articles often and usually take and use the advice given to me by some experienced hub writers, I make corrections often and reemphasize on my grammar and SEO.
          I usually get more views from my university and some other countries, looking at the tracking analytics.

          I also try to get more readers by inviting friends and other bloggers on my YouTube channel. I try to invite readers from the sporting channel I work with and get mails from them on some corrections I have to make to improve on my articles.
