i note that i seem to have amassed a huge sum of 25 cents or less through this new program,.. not that i ever thought i would get rich here,... but just above that # is listed "CPM" and that seems to be something large enough to pay an allbeit small bar tab,.... what are CPM's?
CPM is cost per mille ("thousand" in latin"). I think it estimates how much money you would earn per 1000 views.
CPM means Cost Per Mille (1000), as against CPC in AdSense which means Cost Per Click, that is the money an advertiser pays when someone clicks on your ad.
The CPM is an average based on how much you've earned for a certain number of views.
So if you earned $5 from 50 views, your cpm would be $100:
If, on the other hand, you earned 10c for 50 views you'd only have a CPM of $2.
CPM is just a rough estimate - it can vary widely based on things like click rate, how much different advertisers pay etc.
It's not your actual pay rate but what you could theoretically get if your averages stayed the same.
WryLilt has given a very easy-to-follow description of CPM parameters.

This month my CPM for the HP Ad Program is super low. It's been under $1.50 every day so far. And last month I had a lot of days where it was under $2. Wondering why that is and if it's just happening to me or if others are experiencing this as well.

One day this week I got a CPM if $2.55 and another day this week I got a CPM of $5.71. Both are confirmed final amounts.I am wondering what could cause such a big swing in the course of a few days?

I will recheck my works to see if something is wrong, or I just miscalculated. But being a newbie in online profit tracking, I could be wrong. Yet CPM and earnings seems to be on a low this month. I'm having more views than last April and May. In fact I got almost 200 visitors a day now, but I'm...

How many page views does it take to create $1 ?Now; I realist that page views and hub revenue is not 100% directly proportionate, however I wondered what people found is generally the average revenue generated from a certain amount of page views, I have a rough idea it might be around;400 pages...

Is it realistic to make $40 a day off of 10,000 views daily give or take? Before HubPages suffered from Google Algorithm updates in 2012; I remember doing very well with views on another account, but I don't think my CPM was that high. I pretty much semi-retired from writing on HP during 2014-2016...
