Why do the number of hits on my hub keeping changing. I view the hub hits in the morning and there one number then I view my account later in the day only to find out the numbers have been redistributed?
How to Kiss Good is number one, on google for that topic, and has been so almost since it was posted, yet the hub has no advertisers save for Amonzon?
I also noticed that, my adsence account was $4.24 for one month, and since then the numbers on my hub have been constantly in flux. and my adsence account only registers less than dollar amounts.
The stats are a continuously-updated 24-hour period, so it will go up and down accordingly.
I have no idea about the ads - When I look at your how to kiss good hub, I see google ads.
Actually I see a severe drop in adsense click values across the board. I bet you are hit by that, too.
I still haven't even made a buck with adsense or google. Haven't the slightest idea how it works.
My CTR is still recovering from the Yieldbuild reset - it's almost back to what it was before, but it has taken a long time to get there.
HubPages used to make me about the same amount each month as one particular Adsense site - now it is making me one tenth what that site makes me.
I agree that the average click price has plummeted on HubPages - mine are averaging about 10c each for this month, whereas last month they averaged about 30c each.
On the Adsense site I mentioned earlier we're averaging over $1 per click.
Maybe HubPages has been "smart priced" by Adsense?
Hmm, interesting. My own personal AdSense earnings rebounded fairly quickly, and are higher than ever. (It's not a conspiracy, I promise.)
Well, my CTR was over 2.5%, and had taken a while to get there in the first place. It's back to about where it was, and if the prices per click had held up my earnings would have recovered, too.
With regard to Adsense earnings - is it possible advertisers are just bidding lower across the board? Maybe some psychological impact of the financial crisis in the US?
Perhaps some of them have had their mansions foreclosed, lol ...
I have it on my other sites, too. May be my advertisers are less resilient than yours
I've experienced a drop in revenue too, though I haven't been so sophisticated as to work out why!
Up until the end of July, I'd been telling people how my Adsense earnings from HubPages kept increasing each month (May $25, June, $30, July $35), even though I had only written a couple of Hubs in that time. Then August was only $16. September is $20 so far.
I'm the same as Maddie, my earnings have gone up. Only by cents, but they are higher.
My sincere thanks to my fellow hubbers. I deeply appreciated the community support.
One interesting thing - I've been going through and checking my tags (using the new tag feature). I'm disappointed at how badly targeted some of the ads are.
Any Hub about relationships seems to get ads about "dating sexy Arabic girls" or something similar. Those Hubs used to attract ads about relationship counselling, marriage guidance, etc. If there were ads for dating sites, the ads were more about seeking a relationship than looking for a f***, which is how the current ads come across. The kind of people who read those Hubs are not going to click on these ads!
I've seen the dating ads on other Hubs, too, but have always assumed they would go away once the Hub had been around for a while. But today I opened two Hubs, one about writing a good resume and the other on whether to colour your hair - and there they were, right at the top of the Hub!
Could this have something to do with reduced revenues?

Will they still be allowed to continue writing for the niche sites or will this site be diluted as our best writers and their work leave for a better deal?

Hi Fellow Hubbers!I have done a bit of (unscientific) averaging of AdSense income on HubPages.com, and calculated an earnings rule for Hubs:On average, any given hub will earn about $10.00 per year.My page showing my...

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I...

This month hits my record low for adsense earnings, I did not even reach payout! This has not happened since 2008 when I first joined. I find this odd as it never happened before. Thankfully, the hubpages ad program...

Poor advertisers. They're all tuckered out. Any estimates as to when things will pick up again?
