    Hi everyone,

    In my adsense report it shows that i received 2 impressions through hub pages.

    but in hub pages ads program it shows 0 and because of that i earned nothing.

    is hub pages ads program is cpm based as like it says or different?

    please help me.

    Google Adsense measure impressions differently than HP does.

      sorry to ask it again,

      the impression came from uk.

      is it may be because the impression is not unique?

      hub ads impression will always be less then adsense?

      is it hard to get impression that hub pages ads counts?

      sorry to ask these many questions.

      if possible you can reply.

      thanks a ton again cag

        No reason to apologize.
        Doesn't matter where it came from.
        I don't think so. Impressions are based on the length of time a person spends on the page. Some companies have varying time measurements for such things.
        Impression are paid based on advertising and what the advertiser pays.
        Not that I know of.
        You're welcome. smile

    Impressions don't really pay, clicks do. There is also the matter of when impressions and clics are being reported, there may be different time periods for different programs.

      Google Adsense does have some advertisers who pay per impression. However, Pedrosa is talking about the HP Ads Program, which is both, per impression and clicks.

    Cagsil, interesting to hear about HP paying per impression, wondering how much that could be.

    You two sure are communicating in real-time!

      WE, the ads that are based on impressions is the HUGE Banner ad that is displayed on the outside of hubs. You cannot see it when you are logged into your account. You can only view it when you are not logged in. This banner is pure impression and click based. You'll receive money based on impression, but receive higher value when clicked on.

        Thanks Cagsil, good to know. I have no plans to sign up; rather going ad free.

    well it seems i can't earn anything from hub pages ads CPM program.

    my hub pages stats page shows one of my hub got 21 views in 7 days and another one got 2 in 7days.

    but i got paid for only 3 views since i enrolled into hubpages CPM program.

    is it a waste of time.sorry to ask it friends but CPM is just not working for me.

      Cagsilposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      You're rushing it. Relax and give it some time, like a month. See what happens? Besides, you also only have 2 hubs written. You certainly cannot expect much from just those alone. wink

        Hi cag,

        i really didn't expect much from it as it because i still not started to put much effort in hubpages.

        but my problem is that, hub pages is a CPM based program and hub pages site shows 23 impressions in last 7 days.

        but got paid for 3 impressions only.

        so it's not a CPM at the moment.

        really don't know how it works and whether it's worth or not.

        if i got 23 impressions i should have received payment for 23 impressions and not 3.

        that's my doubt.

        thank you so much for the reply cag

          And, how would you know your impressions? Are you using Google to determine the impressions? If so, then you're failing to understand that Hubpages scores impressions differently.

          As I explained earlier in this thread to Website Examiner, there are only a couple of ads spaces that are impression based. And, not all of Google Advertisers are impression based, only some are.(actually very few are)

          You seem to want things to move along quickly and that is certainly not how things happen, especially when you only have two hubs written. To think that you're going to do extremely well is a bit out of sync with how things actually work.

          Write more hubs. Generate more traffic. You will see a change. Try to relax, be patient and enjoy writing. wink

            first of all i am not rushing it atall !!

            i know it's not a get rich scheme, we earn if we put effort.

            been online earning since 2008 and know a bit about how things work but surly not as much you know cag.

            but,

            i am using my hub pages stat page to count the impression.

            my hub page stat pages shows i got 21 impressions in one hub and 2 in another.

            if you want i can upload that picture.

            i understand that the hubs are mixed with adsense and hub page ads.

            i understand that hub pages ads are the only cpm for most of the time

            but those cpm counts seems not in exact match with stats page.




            i don't want things to move very quickly ! just want to know why the stats page count and cpm count is different,

            i know i get what i give,the more i write the more i earn.i am not expecting anything from these hubs,yes the concept is to earn but not more then the amount of effort that i have put in,

            thanks again cag

    HPads and adsense will never see the same number of impressions.  HPads are not displayed on every page, thus impressions are lower than those reported from adsense.

    As Cagsil says, both use both impressions and clicks for payment, but which one is based on the ad.  An impression may or may not result in any income.

    Impressions typically pay well under one cent, which means it will take many impressions to see any income at all even if you are actually earning from each one.  Clicks pay (typically) more than a penny which means that nearly every click will result in income (public service ad clicks pay nothing, though).

      thanks for the reply.

      i thought hubpages ads are shown every time a hub gets view.

      means mix of hub ads and adsense in each page.

      this is a news for me.

      so it seems that we won't get 100% fill in our hubs.

      that's bit disappointing,but that's ok.


      i know that cpm can never match cpc.

      i know the earnings are lower in cpm but it's about the count of page view and not about lower earnings.

        My understanding, which could be wrong, is that HPads and adsense are in a "bidding war" for our hubs.  Whichever one offers the best price for a particular view gets the hub for that moment.

        All ad spaces will be filled, but sometimes with all adsense ads.

        The result, at least for me, has been beneficial.  Adsense is way down (measured by ECPM) but that is because there aren't as many adsense ads on a typical hub and what there are don't pay what they used to per click.  HPads has more than made up for the difference. 

        If I turn HPads off my number of clicks to adsense immediately goes up, but they pay almost nothing per click - the total income goes down.  If google paid what they used to pre-panda I'm not sure HPads would be beneficial but until that happens I find HPads to be a lifesaver.

          the comparison between adsense and hub pages ads is not need.

          i love both hub pages ads and adsense,hub pages bit more because i love CPM a lot.

          But it's all about counting.

          in your reply's i learned few other reasons which may effect the impressions and earning.

          it would be nice,if hub page presents some tools to see how many impressions that hub pages ads received per day, because it seems very difficult to calculate the page views and earnings.

          1. wilderness profile image95
            wildernessposted 6 years ago in reply to this

            Yes it would, and I would like to know which hubs are producing impressions and income as well.  Maybe one day they will do that.
