only 1 $ for revenue potential on 2 hubs published this week end

    I've never had only 1 $ on a hub before!  This week end I published my first short story and thought the 1 $ was because short story hubs pay terribly low - even lower than poetry hubs!  Then I published another hub in my usual genre that typically yields 3 $$$.  I only got 1 $ for that too.  Is there also a change in revenue potential as a result of recent ad changes?  Are $$$$$ harder to get now?

      The $$ are only a very rough indication of revenue potential, based primarily (I think) on the keywords used and does not consider traffic at all.

      I wouldn't pay much attention to them.  Some of my highest income producers are shown at only 1 $ - the higher traffic more than makes up for low paying keywords.

      I stopped paying attention to the Metric $$$$$ HP uses on hubs. It's only a guessestimation really. wink

      Yep, I've got some 1 $ ones. I've learned to just ignore them. smile

    Thanks.  Good to know.  It is a change, and i thought it might be related to other recent changes.

    You can change the $$$ on your hubs by playing with your tags, try adding some or removing some and watch the $ sign change.

      I like that! Once the tags tell you what is what, then tack those same words into the article itself. I'm adding this to my already overwhelmed list. Worth a shot before going back to ignoring. smile

        To be honest, I only learned that by accident, and sometimes fewer tags result in more $$$$ so simply because I have a complete misunderstanding of how the whole system works, most of my hubs have very few tags.

        It worked!  it went from $ to $$$.  I don't have any $$$$$ words that relate to the hub though, so this is great.  Thanks again IzzyM

          In my experience $$$ pays better than those with $$$$$ anyway, so that's a nice place to be smile

    Something new to learn smile I thought, the more tags the better. Obviously, not necesary.

      Tina, changing the number of $$$ does not have any effect on your real earnings potential. This is the highly misleading metrics I wish they never introduced. My experience shows the more tags you use, the better your hub will rank in search engines - within the boundaries system allows you to have. smile

    To be honest, my highest pay per click hub is only $$... it's only a rough indicator.

    I haven't made a single penny yet. So a dollar sounds great.
