I am trying to make sense of the revenue stream here on Hub Pages and on the Internet in general.
First are impressions profitable? Or it is simply a game of number, the more impressions translate to more clicks which is where the real money is at?
Also, are impressions and traffic the same?
Lastly, the traffic that I receive from foreign countries - which by the way is sadly often higher than my US traffic so far - do these impressions or sources of traffic pay me a dividend?
Your expertise in this area is greatly appreciated.
I've wondered about that too. I suppose traffic is traffic and we get paid by the number of impressions specially on HP Ads program. I would hope that people in the Philippines or Nigeria are showing regional ads that they would be interested in, as I also get views from faraway countries. But writing to target faraway markets might not be a good idea IMHO.
There are topics which are relevant to all regions, markets and humanity as a whole.

My CPM's and traffic keep dropping more and more every day. Is it just me? Didn't Paul say the increase in traffic and CPM's would immediately start or did I misread something?
