Do HubPages use CPM or anything like that? How do they decide your earnings? Because I've been watching my earnings and views daily for a month or so and I can't find any link between two. I don't make much(.30-.60 a daily average) so it isn't hard for me to watch. And my page views are always between 90-140 on average. I have 20 some Hubs but only 1-2 of them get 30-40 views a day the rest just get 1-10. The issue is that the daily earnings don't seem to match the daily views. Views will be high but payouts low and vice versa. I don't think anyone is clicking anything so I assume this was payment for impressions.
My logic was if I'm making .50 a day for 100 views, I should make $1.00 for 200 views. Is this not correct? I enjoy making my hubs but just can't figure out how the payment system works.

Ok Thank You!
I read it over, and the only thing I see that kind of applies is the bit about ad blockers and stuff.
So basically some days more people with ad blockers view my pages than others? And those days may have higher views but fewer earnings?
It also depends on CPM and what advertisers decide to pay. CPM on some topics are worth more than others. For example, we can assume CPM may be higher for medical content than for creative writing. Also, traffic from search engines is usually worth more than traffic from sharing on social media.
But 95% of my traffic is on the same post with traffic from the same source(google). I don't do any off-page SEO so all my traffic is organic from google or from HubPages itself. I just noticed that that flux in my earnings and views don't match. I only write about two topics so it could be possible that some days the one topic is getting more views than the other and I didn't notice. Ill have to look into it better. Can the value of a keyword change daily and could what I be seeing it the flux in the value of the words I write about?
CPM can fluctuate. It may take a little time for traffic and earnings data to update.
" traffic from search engines is usually worth more than traffic from sharing on social media."
Why is that?
Is that also true for Pinterest?
I think this is because if it comes from a search engine it means they are currently looking for it(more likely to click/buy something) and if it's from a social media account it is more likely just someone bored(not buying anything).
Thank you so much, Matt, for responding to our concerns. It's encouraging to see you being active and engaged.
Is CPM quoted in our stats the average for the previous day, determined by dividing revenue by number of impressions and multiplying by 1000?
Isn't it like this: Impressions × CPM ÷ 1000 ???
Don't ask. No one knows anymore.

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...

There are a lot of hubbers that believe that the traffic stats inform the earnings figures. Considering that the traffic stats have not been working well lately it has got people worried that they aren't getting the earnings/impressions that they should be and this is damaging writer trust in HP....

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...

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?

Many people have asked how the new sites are performing so far. The latest Newsletter provides a general overview, but I'd also like to invite Hubbers who have had Hubs moved to discuss your experiences here. Overall, the change has been very positive, but there's also variation from author to...

How many page views does it take to create $1 ?Now; I realist that page views and hub revenue is not 100% directly proportionate, however I wondered what people found is generally the average revenue generated from a certain amount of page views, I have a rough idea it might be around;400 pages...
