    Why are my hpad ad program CPM showing $0.00 for the past few days? It has never happened before! Does this mean no matter how many impressions i have, i wont make any money?

      If you have no income the CPM will be 0; it is nothing but a calculation based on income and number of impressions.  Are you sure you haven't turned HPads off?

    The cpm reports what you are making per 100 visitors. Which for that particular day was mothing

      1000 visitors.  You missed a decimal.

      But why am i making $0.00 per thousand views when I do have a handful of impressions? It just seems so pointless,
      @wilderness my HPads is active.

        To make money you need a LOT of visitors and/or people to click the ads. You make money when Hubpages makes money and a "Handful" of visitors won't generally do that.

        They only pay 10% of 10,000 impressions or so? Which would be roughly $50 dollars I think but I'm still new to hubpages as well.

    But many times earlier I have made a few pennies here and there even with a handful of visitors... it is been $0 only since the past two days!

    They do not pay a set rate. You get exactly what the ads earn for the impressions credited to you ( versus the impressions credited to hubpages)

      Is it normal to have $0.00 for the past four days even thought there are views? if my CPM is going to be $0 everyday, whats the point of writing on hubpages? I might as well turn of my hpads!

        So how much traffic do you get? Your Cpm is caused by what is on your hubs. Mine hovers around 5 dollars. But I can still easily go 100 hits without a cent. The rate is for the full 1000 and not a payout per hit

          There are peaks and valleys but I do get good traffic and lately I got a boost in my views as one of my hub was nominated for hubnugget... for the past few days I have had impressions in the range of 10 to 50 but at $0.00 CPM! I just keep wondering what is the point of getting views if the CPM is zero. what if i get a thousand impressions or even a million impressions at $0.00 CPM???

          I'm beginning to think that hubpages makes sense only if you enjoy writing for the sake of writing and not if you seriously want to make money (and not pennies). It's just not worth the effort.

            Why don't you send off a mail to Team@hubpages .. to understand why this is happening.

    10-50 hits can easily yield zero income.  Based on my hubs, traffic may be paid for at about 1c per 100 unique and I get and ad click per about 100 visitors. So up to 50 visits making no money is totally possible.

    What is you CPM for a typical week?  That will tell you how much you earn per 1000 visitors.

    If you have low traffic and are on adsense, I would suggest moving to hubads,  Income is more steady on that plan.

      My CPM for a typical week varies but is around $1.2
      I think I will try deactivating my adsense for sometime and see how that works out. Thanks for all your help psycheskinner!
