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...
