I was excited that February had started with a bang. In the first week I was making close to $3 a day. But since the last three days the earnings have dipped though traffic remains almost constant. I have not even made a total of 50 cents in the last three days combined earnings. Has it happened to any one else too?
I'm a newbie so my earnings are hit and miss, but my adsense revenue took a dip for a couple of days (no earnings one day, and then a few cents for the next couple of days). I earned about $2 again today (last night, really), so perhaps it was a temporary lull? I was hoping that people trapped by the snow would be online, lol!
I was very enthusiastic how February started off, but now it's dipping!
I tend to find I quite often have a good couple of days, then a less good few days, then it picks up again, then it drops, etc, etc, etc
What I do find is that overall the up's become higher and the drops less steep, so overall things head in the right direction even if they take a few detours along the way.
A few days drop is nothing to worry about - it's just the grand cycle of things - it will get better again
I think that you need to start thinking about longer increments of time Sid. Look at your figures monthly and compare to the same month last year. Do not heap too much misery on yourself
That is so inspiring cre8tive but with 300 hubs I was expecting I wouldn't have a zero day which I almost had yesterday as I made only few cents. Hope things improve soon. The good thing is that traffic has not decreased.
I too feel so. I am tweaking my older hubs which are non performers and also spending more time on keyword research. Hope things improve with time.
Sid think about a unique angle for everyone of your hubs. Something that no one else is talking about. In those competitive niches you have to be really unique. Then research the keywords and try to find a underutilized keyword phrase for that paragraph. But don't stop there. Write your paragraph so that you'll attract several longer phrases based on that shorter one. Don't worry if the longer phrases aren't in the keyword tool. The long tail is often invisible to reasearch.
Even if it's adding a book about the topic at the end, or something like that. Just describe whatever you add in minute detail.
If you're traffic isn't decreasing, but you're making less money, it means either HubPages is getting all the paying traffic on their impressions or your getting traffic that doesn't want to spend money. Try thinking about how to attract buyers - not lookers.
I agree with 300 hubs you shouldn't be having zero days.
this is such a power-packed paragraph. thanks for sharing such great advice.
My Feb. is going well, with several $30+ days already. Since I shared this, my earnings will prolly be jinxed. I'll probably make like $1 tomorrow. lol

For the past few days my CPM rates have gone sky high- higher in fact than they were in December. Is anybody else experiencing surprisingly high CPMs? I thought I would find out before I got too excited.

My daily earnings have dropped drastically -- WHY? Is it because HP has pulled ads on my hubs due to the "unfeatured" hubs, which are mostly poems? Are poems not worthy of being featured and getting daily earnings? And WHY does HP decide what should or should not be featured?...

Hi All, My traffic has been flat over the past week or two. Admittedly, I haven't promoted any of my hubs over that time period. That being said, I would like to get some steady and sustainable traffic. Any tips or promotional platforms that are working well for any of you?I currently have a few...

There are tons of hubs on keyword selection and the various tools one could use to make the process easier.But, like most things 'net - they are mostly copies of copies of copies or poorly strewn together theories by intermediate writer-marketers ..So I ask... what was truly masterful, what made...

I've read a lot about the importance of doing keyword research, but then you also get the impression that to really do that research properly can take a long time unless you get lucky early on or really know what you are doing. So I wonder, with some people pumping out huge amounts of hubs, are...
