    Hello everyone, trust your keeping safe. Truly, I have learnt a lot since I joined HP. I have read posts on earnings a lot, and have come to the conclusion that, you need at most 30,000 page views for a $50 pay-out. Translating to 600 page views for a dollar. I've got 300 page views already but I haven't seen $0.5 anywhere. I've seen $0.01 for ads but nothing for page views. Please, is there something I'm not doing right?

      You only have 7 articles and none are on any of the niche sites which is where the money is.  You need to keep writing and try to get your articles moved to niche sites.  Until you have articles on the niche sites, you will not make any money.

      With my current CPMs, I get about 300 - 400 views a day. I am just now getting to the point that I make $1 a day. It takes a lot of writing and improving your views, before you start to see daily income that is noteworthy.

      Focus on finding a topic that you enjoy writing about that works well on HubPages.

      Writing about some of my favorite video games is my topic. So now, I only write about that, and my hubs are (mostly) put on LevelSkip.

        Great!!! That's what am working on-creating a niche for myself.
        It's fun here...

          It actually a picture I took for LinkedIn. I just use it everywhere as it is one of better looking pictures.

    Page views are to be seen on daily basis and not on cumulative one, that is one important point.

    Rustic I C Uposted 5 weeks ago

    Oh! That's great Bhattuc; could you please explain further. Last time I checked, my cumulative was 301 page views and about just 4 for the day. Does it now mean that, if I get 300 page views and above in one day, I get a dollar after I join a niche or..? Please, help me out. Thanks for your advice.

    I have only been here since July. However, I do not think that is correct. My understanding is your payout is based on impressions not views. Impressions are based on ad views. If a viewer has an ad blocker, you may get a view, but no impressions. The number of impressions are based on the number of ads in the article and whether the reader views the entire article to see them. For example, if there are five ads, and no ad blocker and the article is read completely, you could get five impressions from one viewer. (I am finding with ad blockers, bounce rates, and the ability to keep  reader interested, I am likely to have more views than impressions.) I have far less than 30,000 views, and reached the payout for the first time this month. (However, it will decline at the end of the month because a seasonal article is doing it for me.) I am not sure, but I think the views for thousand may be different depending on each person's traffic, but I am uncertain. (The CPM combined with your impressions will determine how much you make per day.) Let's hope I've gotten all this right.  If I have not explained this accurately, I hope one of you experienced hubbers will chime in. Any corrections are welcome as I am trying hard to understand all this.

      Thank you Abby, but this link https://hubpages.com/community/How-Many … ges-Payout and some other, though I can't cite them now cos I can't lay my hands on them; informed my judgement. I am still learning. I will consider your input as well. Thank you.

        That article is almost six years old. Those suggestions are mostly out of date.

        Earnings are added daily, based on the impressions from the previous day.

      Thanks Theraggededge. Please, I just want to be clear on this. Does it mean that page views don't count anymore even if I joined a niche?

      1. theraggededge profile image97
        theraggededgeposted 5 weeks agoin reply to this

        Yes, page views count. Without views there will be no impressions. Your single aim is to get as many views (and thus impressions) as possible.

        You don't join a niche, your articles are accepted for them. Think of them as specialist publications.

        Cumulative views count for nothing... one of my articles has 1.3 million cumulative views, but its earnings are only as good as yesterday's traffic. Another has 500k total views but only got 26 yesterday.

              Haha @theraggededge I am not usually camera-ready either. Your photo gave me some skincare goals.

                I'll tell you my skin care regime. Wash face with soap and water in the bath. Moisturize. Slap on a bit of foundation. Sometimes forget to wash face before bed. That's it.

                Selfies though... shudder.

            It's slowed down a lot, I'm on... goes to check... 8,157,607, which seems mad - it only seems like yesterday I joined HP.

      You definitely don't have to have 600 views to make a dollar.

        Wow! Quite encouraging NateB11. Could you please share with me, how to make it happen. Got to know that some of the things I have read and rely on, are stale now. Please, what's the current strategy to be successful here? If you don't mind.. Thanks for your contribution.

      It is very right that earnings would be  based on impressions and not on views. My point was that earnings will be calculated on daily basis on daily impressions and not on cumulative impressions. Please correct me if I am wrong.

        Rustic I C Uposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

        Thank you bhattuc. Hope you're great.
        Well, I think both daily and cumulative matter because daily makes up cumulative, and payment is based on cumulative. Also, I don't think there's any proven research that confirms a direct relationship exists between number of views and number of impressions. Unless there's something, I am yet to know which I would gladly welcome. What do you think? Or maybe I didn't get your point.
        Cheers.

          theraggededgeposted 4 weeks agoin reply to this

          Earnings are added daily based on the previous day's impressions. The amounts are added up cumulatively over the month.

          The cumulative impressions/views are not important, although they are useful for the writer's records. For instance, when checking the impressions for a particular month compared with the same month the previous year.

          The relationship between views and impressions is simple. The more views you garner, the more impressions you will have. So there is obviously a direct relationship. Without the former, you won't have any of the latter.

            That's pretty cool then. I'll concentrate on more views to make a difference.

            Thanks Theraggedegde.

      A view is as per the word. When someone accesses your hub.

      An impression is when a view is long/substantial enough to fulfil advertising criteria. That means ads displayed are deemed most likely to have been (at least) noticed.

      Thus, as others have said, one is not independent of another. As for the numerical rate, I don't know what it is for others but my impressions are always around a third of my views.

      Cumulative numbers, on the other hand, are irrelevant. They are just there for your reference. They could be useful if you're promoting your writing services. For example, you can tell clients you have so-and-so accumulated views on HP. But outside of that, they have no other notable use.

      Lastly, and as others have said too, earnings are calculated daily. Once you're paid for an impression, that's it. No advertiser will keep paying you for an impression again and again.

      It is also impossible for anyone to give you an indication of how many impressions you need to earn a dollar. Advertising rates i.e. CPM differs depending on your topic. You could need several thousands impressions to get a buck. Or you could just need a few hundreds.

        Very interesting!!! I obviously didn't get the impression thing. I thought it meant a click on an advert.
        It makes more sense to me now to recall what NateB11 said, seconded by Theraggedegde- GOOD articles that people are LOOKING FOR on the internet. 'Good articles' will keep them glued for long enough to make an impression while 'people are looking for' will attract them in the first place. Hmm; but I would like to add that such hubs should also be lengthy enough to keep visitors hanging around for a long while.
        I am grateful to this house, and to you my dear friend CYong74.....You just made it a lot easier. THANK YOU.
