    One of my hub got earnings from pay per impression ad. My question is

    1. Getting those ads -Is it good sign or bad sign?

    2. What if someone click on those impression ads?

    I always find that I have a mix of PPC and impression-based ads on HP. It's neither a good nor a bad sign.

    The whole point of those ads is to have readers click on them. You just don't get paid for the clicks. You get paid for the impressions whether there are clicks or not.

        No.

        For PPC (pay-per-click) ads, you will see impressions, clicks and earnings. For impression-based ads, you will only see impressions and earnings.

    Adsense algorithm is not open so we can't say if it's good or bad. You'll also find impression based ads paying 1$ or so once you reach miles views which is good sign if you're not getting any clicks at all on specific topic hubs. As lrohner said, it's not good but it's not bad either.

    Sorry for the stupid question guys, but what are pay per impression ads? Do we have to sign up for them separately ? Any way to track those ads ? Really sorry for thread Hijack...

      These are ads that we get paid for when someone sees them (views the page) rather when someone clicks on them. 

      Typically they pay well under a penny per view.

      You do not sign up for them - they are a part of the adsense program.
