How are peoples CPMs? Mine used to be 7ish, then last month 6, this month 5, this week under 5! A bit of a worrying trend.
There is so much discussion on this subject.. but staff why don't you explain this to us.
Staff are, in my opinion, trying to stick to the promises they offered the advertisers.
Remember that when HP joined all those ad sites (or however HPads came about), Hubpages was in a much stronger position in the serps than they are now. Google Panda happened after all the papers were signed.
There has probably been a lot of fretting behind the scenes!
And I think it is still happening, so let's just concentrate on writing some decent new content, and not worry too much about the things we can't control.
In my experience, across all accounts, cpm goes down when traffic rises, generally.
Not always, but usually.
I was pleasantly surprised to learn earlier that my second account that saw a massive increase in traffic overnight, also saw a rise in cpm.
But I know from experience, that is not the norm.
Wow, some good news at last ... and I hope it stays that way for you Izzy. What I am not able to understand is- why does cpm have to go down as traffic rises.. what is your understanding on this?
Well, we kinda cross-posted, I hope my last post puts things in perspective.
Yes my second account is seeing its second day of reasonable traffic, not fantastic traffic, not enough to write home about, but traffic up 4-fold is worth noting.
But there are only 60 hubs there, this is the account I want to see the results on!
But hey thanks
MY HPads CPM was down nearly 50% last week, for a week. It has bounced back up to normal, given that it does bounce a dollar or two daily.
CPM has been pretty crappy for the past week. Been thinking about turning off HPads temporarily to see if things are better on AdSense.
My traffic is steady and my CPM is down by almost 50% since the beginning of the year.

This has been a problem for years now, really since the induction of the HubPages ad program and it's pretty much what has made me give on on HubPages (I used to write a lot, now seldom.)I have a hub that occasionally...

Pretty frustrating when I get a significant traffic spike only to see CPM values plummet. My Google Analytics stay steady for the most part as far as page time, bounce rate and things of that nature. Why does this...

I noticed a huge spike in my earnings, and it prompted me to take a look at my account for the first time in ages. (embarrassed to say that I got complacent and stopped actively hubbing once I started getting...
