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 $$$$$ HP uses on hubs. It's only a guessestimation really.
Yep, I've got some 1 $ ones. I've learned to just ignore them.
Thanks. Good to know. It is a change, and i thought it might be related to other recent changes.
You can change the $$$ 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.
It worked! it went from $ to $$$. I don't have any $$$$$ words that relate to the hub though, so this is great. Thanks again IzzyM
Something new to learn I thought, the more tags the better. Obviously, not necesary.
Tina, changing the number of $$$ 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.
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.

How to make good, wise and clever use of "Revenue Potential" Data.I have observed that the more links I add to a Hub, the revenue potential drops. Lesser and Very Relevant Links works best and takes the Hub on top of search engines. For e.g, the above data is from one of my hub that has...

The new layout explodes the prominence of the related hubs images down the right side of the page. This image appears before all the ads, apart from the Google adsense ad above the title. Related hubs get an absolutely free ride aboard all the articles that attract hits from search engines through...

Upon clicking "Generate tags", I get this message:Can't find any keywords to suggest. Perhaps you haven't written enough text, or maybe you have already used all of our suggestions!I've written more than enough text and have manually added very few tags. I've never seen this before....

I have about 6 unpublished hubs with no content in them just a few tags. Each had at least one warning of being substandard with not content. If the hub is unpublished waiting for content, and has never been published before, is it a problem to have them sitting in the account page without...
