      So glad I was sitting down when I checked it. 

      What is going on?  CPMs in 2021 were half what they were in 2020 and 2019. 

      Yes, I keep records.  I love spreadsheets.

      CPM was about $3 than January 1st 2021, but still low. My GA shows increased traffic on the 2nd. Anyone else?

        Yes, higher than it's been for a couple of weeks, but still 30% down on last year. Hourly traffic today seems to be up to November levels, but might be just a temporary surge. Traffic always seems to start to rise in January for me. Maybe something to do with New Year resolution optimism.

      That's when mine fell off the cliff. I came back after staying away for a long time and saw horrible earnings and then saw this post and checked my CPMs and saw exactly when my earnings sunk.

      Pretty low right now. But I just had my best month earnings wise in December. I was over $40 and I did not expect to see that until I wrote much more. Did not quite make it to $50 a month, though.

      SerenityHaloposted 11 months agoin reply to this

      December was pretty low for me too. The lowest December in years. January hurts but in a different way... because January isn't normally a strong month. The first quarter is usually the hardest for me.

      Something happened in September last year, and I haven't really seen a sign of improvement since. I'm trying to hustle for HP and also build in other spots. Medium is starting to patch the hole in HP earnings. I'm trying out Vocal.Media, but its viewership isn't very high. It's comparable to some of Hubpages highest niche sites. Medium gets significantly more traffic.

          For me, about $15 the first month, $100 the second, and $200 the third. For initial growth, that’s not too bad.

      Not sure if this is helpful, but I looked at my CPMS, and there are only a handful of months where mine dipped to around $1 to $1.99.

      Jan 2016, Feb 2016, Feb 2017, April 2020, Jan 2021, and Jan 2022.

      This trend usually doesn't last long, at most a couple of weeks.

    It's actually hard to compare to previous periods because the way impressions are listed keep halving and then doubling again every so many days, whatever's going on with the stats.

  6. eugbug profile image96
    eugbugposted 11 months ago

    The worrying thing is that if traffic keeps falling, maybe companies will pull advertising or lower priced advertising will be have to offered to potential advertisers. I don't know how it works, but isn't that the way commercial TV works? TV stations want engagement to keep advertisers happy. I wonder what the figures are for total traffic to each site?
    This was the traffic for last month compared to last year for my highest traffic article. According to GA, that page had a significantly longer load time for December compared to November. Those warnings are quite frequent, maybe something to do with ads?

      I think the bottom line for me is earnings. I have multiple HP accounts and as far as I'm concerned CPMs are much more flaky and open to interpretation than they may appear.

      The trends for views/impressions and CPMs are important, though, of course, and it's definitely not good.

      Advertisers want to target sites that are popular and getting more popular.  If a site seems to be in decline, there's a danger of it falling into a negative loop.

      Things aren't perhaps as hairy as they used to be, though, in the sense that the site is part of something bigger nowadays (Maven/Arena). I just wish we got more official communications, like the old days.

      1. eugbug profile image96
        eugbugposted 11 months agoin reply to this

        The question is whether Maven is subsidising Hubpages, or they're out on their own. I wish Hubpages and the niches sites were marketed and advertised more as a brand to at least make the punters aware of the names. For instance when I search for DIY articles and get a list of search results,  I know FamilyHandyman is one of the sites that has lots of articles, although not necessarily very in-depth on a subject.

        Here's a couple of references I've come across for Owlcation:

          Maven/Arena (and HP) are backed up by venture capital.

          HP and Medium are not profit-making as far as I'm aware. But that doesn't matter if they've got investors/money available.

            Yeah the long term (short term?) worry is that they put HP out to pasture. There appears to be no longer any management for it although we  occasionally hear from Matt. But also no encouragement to write, like there was in the old days of HP, but then they had a team and they don't appear to any longer. The worry also is that admin must be writing out thousands of $50 cheques each month for people that haven't been on here for years. The whole thing is a real shame as I've personally seen my earnings tumble for about two years now and although at first I guess like all, I relentlessly edited and applied fresh content, it made little difference but maybe stabilise the views until there'd be another plummet. I truly don't want to put any more energy into that any longer. Just a shame there's nowhere else to go. I guess there's a new audience on the net now that either can't read or can't be bothered reading and they learn everything through video. Makes you despair a little.

              My earnings for 2021 were actually the highest ever in 10 years. Traffic only started to decline at the start of October.

                Yes, the first half of last year was a golden period for me, too. I thought they'd cracked the code.

                We'll have to see what the Arena changes bring. The general trend since I've been here, starting in 2011, is that the "community" and "social" aspects have gradually been squeezed out of existence and it's become more like a traditional professional publisher with editors and increased editorial policies etc.

                To a large extent, the direction of the company is dictated by Google, due to the business model which relies on search engine traffic. HP are forced to keep going "leaner and fitter" because any material interpreted by Google to be "low quality" drags the entire site down.

    My CPM is lower after Dec 31st but my views are slightly up for some reason.
    My guess is that after the shop-frenzy of the holidays, companies are paying less for ads now.
    It happens every January, but in previous years the average CPM was higher, so now this seasonal decline looks particularly sad.

    Loweset CPM to date. With the halving of my traffic it's not looking too good. This should be the end of my peak time, but unfortunately I saw a rapid decline much earlier for December. My random article that is still surprisingly seeing a rise in traffic is not close to making up for the loss of my main articles.

    I hope things start turning around on all fronts.

    Currently, I am still at least getting the "Amazon afterglow" that follows Christmas. When that's gone, things will be truly dire.

    My only hope is that earnings follow the same pattern as last year, when (at least for me) things started slow but got very good for the next five months. It's a blind hope, though.

    I still like this site and want to write more for HP, but it's hard not to get cold feet when things aren't going well.

    1. OldRoses profile image96
      OldRosesposted 11 months agoin reply to this

      The problem is that there is nowhere else to go.  I plan on staying on HP because of that and the fact that I don't want to start another website.  It's too much work and too expensive.  I maintain a website for my business but if I decide to retire, I would delete that website for those reasons.

      I like that HP does all of the work for me in return for a percentage of my earnings.  It's an easy trade-off for me.

      1. PaulGoodman67 profile image95
        PaulGoodman67posted 11 months agoin reply to this

        I'm staying at HP. It gives me a reasonable income and I can work intensively, or do very little, according to how I feel and what's going on in my life.

        Psychological, though, it's hard to write a lot when the site is doing badly. I wrote about 40 hubs between Jan and May last year, and then only about 5 after things started going awry.

        You're right that writing options are limited.

        I do okay at Medium, but I feel that I'm running on a hamster wheel there and I will take a hit whenever I step off. I prefer the HP model.

        I could do some freelance stuff, but I dread dealing with clients and deadlines and all that stuff.

        I will have to look outside the writing world, I guess. I always have multiple stuff happening, but writing is my favorite. I will need to focus more on something else, or start something new, if this dire situation continues.

          I use Medium to write about whatever random nonsense I want. I don't have much expectations for my writing there. But I am getting tiny amounts of views.

          I have been focusing on writing for Medium recently as I am enjoying it. I tend to write smaller stories that answer a single question or go over a single thought I have.

          I need to remember to write new hubs. But I have been so busy trying to write content for other platforms I have neglected my HubPages account last year.

          Last year I started to write on Medium and I am testing this new website out called Vocal. It reminds me of HubPages in many ways. I also have my own website.


          I am in this awkward spot where I make enough money on HubPages to care. But not enough that it does too much for me.

      There's usually a big drop off from December to January, that's normal in my experience?

      I think you're an exception, if that doesn't happen for you. It may relate to  subject matter, of course, DIY tends to be more stable, for instance.

      I have more than one account and they do all vary, but there's typically a noticeable drop.

      That said, there was a positive algo change in December 2020, if I remember rightly, so that likely helped to ameliorate the earnings drop last year?

      I think the significant thing this year for me was that things went from bad to worse, proving that no matter how dire things are, they can always deteriorate further! smile

        The big contrast is if I calculate earnings as an hourly rate. I do really well at HP and terrible at Medium, when all the time I put in is considered.

        Okay, it can be argued that it's an unfair comparison: I don't have to put that much time at HP because I've built up a body of work over ten years.

        However, the passive earning element is super-important, as far as I'm concerned, it's a deal breaker for me.

      There was a major Google algorithm change in December that affected views/impressions negatively.

      I think that conspired with the general drop in earnings after Xmas and the quarterly drop in CPMs at the start of January to deliver a crushing blow.

          It's maybe too early to say if it's a significant trend, but let's hope that things have bottomed out and are on the rise again.

          I hate to sound conspiratorial, but it sometimes feels like there's a history of the site getting hit in late summer/autumn and losing out on the most lucrative period of the year; only to see a recovery in January when earning rates are lower. That's not really scientific, but how it feels.

          We can only hope that 2022 follows the trend that you and I saw last year and things get better and better.

    The impression calculation method seems to have changed again. Impressions are reduced by nearly 50% (although views were higher), but CPM although it appears higher hasn't increased proportionately. In fact it dropped again. Unless of course there's a delay in calculating impressions.

    1. Shesabutterfly profile image93

      My earnings for today are showing half impressions, but double CPM so earnings are comparable to yesterday when impressions were higher, but CPM was much lower. I do not have an asterisk so I'm assuming these are final. A bit disappointing that impressions have gone down again, but if CPM's climb back up it will be about the same earnings for me I think.

        Yeah, who knows what's happening with the reporting?!?!? Seems like a mess today!

        My weekly newsletter reports that were emailed suggested that I've gained back the traffic that was lost in December. I guess the hope is that the traffic continues to improve.

        CPMs should increase by mid-Feb, if normally seasonal trends happen, but by how much is anyone's guess.

  22. eugbug profile image96

    Tuesday impressions and CPM changed again from yesterday's figures, almost doubling, even though the asterisk had disappeared late yesterday. Maybe stats weren't fully complete. Wednesdays impressions are almost half of what they should be again, similar to Tuesday's values.

      I just noticed this as well. Ultimately it doesn't really affect my earnings, so I haven't been paying much attention to it lately. This new system seems to take much longer to finalize figures for some reason. I have never seen almost daily changes like this in all the years that I have been here.

      My cpm/impressions have been changing often since the introduction of this new calculation for impressions started. I don't understand how it causes such drastic cpm changes, but my earnings are very similar whether I have lower impressions with higher cpm or higher impressions with lower cpm.

      Monday, the 10th was the highest for me so far this month. However, GA shows a huge drop on the 11th and a better 20% gain on the 12th. However, stats are lower than on the 8th, but gaining traction after the drop on the 11th. I have noticed, via my GA account, that articles that weren't previously gaining traffic are now. To me that's a plus, considering I'd only written one new article in 2021. The articles that receive organic traffic were written prior, some years ago. As long as I receive my intermittent HP payments (typically every other month), I'm a happy girl. Thank goodness for my well-paying day job!

      Let's hope there's an error, a glitch, a huge mistake. Please, someone from HP, put us out of our misery sooner rather than later.

    Mine has an asterisk, so hopefully all the revenue hasn't been added to the total.

    Mine went drop from December to early January. But now, I think it is slowly recovering. smile Hopefully, it sustains.

    I stopped writing for Hubpages over 2 odd years ago for editing and then re-editing their edits multiple times. The content is not mine anymore, they basically have put in incorrect information. So I am just here to collect the $$$ now and write elsewhere.

    Was a great platform, and then they stuffed it right up.

    FROM near $1k payouts to now $100 - pathetic
