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.

I am just curious, all 92 hubs of mine are featured. In your opinion, should one delete (although Featured) any hubs where the score on a particular hub has eventually dropped way down from when it was initially high at one point? Or would it be better to just unpublish and later...

I've noticed that when it comes to traffic, my hubs on network sites (ex. turbofuture, pairedlife) perform a lot better than my hubs on hubpages.com. I'm just wondering if there are certain ways we can do to increase the views for these hubs other than just sharing them on social media. I'm asking...
