I just activated my Hub Ad program early this week. I was able to compare my earnings with my sister's. I noticed that the number of views does not necessarily mean more earnings. Why is that? If that is the case, then what really determines your earnings from hub ad program?
it depends on the type of niches/keywords of your hubs. The topic determines the ads displayed in your hubs. Although I have seen lots of hostgator ads to my cooking, parenting, pregnancy etc hubs.
It probably has a lot to do with how long people stay on the page of the hub as well as how much the advertiser bids.
I see. When I clicked the earnings of Hub Ad Program, I see CPM and Impressions. What do those mean?
Impressions are the number of views your hubs received that were usable by the program.
CPM is the average earnings per 1000 impressions.
I have also noticed that with the HP ad program more impressions do not seem to correlate to more earnings.
When I graphed my impressions, and earnings I noticed that some days with peak impressions actually had the lowest earnings!
It seems like HP ads might be normalizing my earnings and not allowing me to take advantage of traffic peaks.
It would be helpful if HP would provide more details as to exactly how earnings are derived from this program. If anyone has any links that explain this in more detail please share them.

Please share your practical experience, the effects of this program on your earnings, keeping in mind about Hubpages TOS as well as Google adsense TOS.Thanks!

I keep an eye on my stats daily. I noticed a sharp decline in my earnings for yesterday, April 10th. I know it is wrong. Has anyone else been affected by this yesterday? Who do I need to speak with about this? Thanks.

I was thinking about this for sometime. Went through some details on this matter and found out that HP program is mainly concentrated on Impressions whereas Adsense is all about clicks. It's not that I want to become a Millionaire just by writing, I thought to ask the "Seniors" feedback...

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.

Some people have said they've turned off HP Ads and just use Adsense and actually make more money from Adsense. I'm considering trying that out and was curious how much more some of you are making just through Adsense. Fifty percent more? Twice as much? Triple? Quadruple?

I have about 4/5 featured hubs and I started about 2 weeks ago, I'm just curious as to how all of this works! All of my scores are in the 50s and between 14-77 ~ever views~
