I don't understand why my hubpage ads are bringing less money. I have had more traffic an the last few months but it seems I'm makeing less money. Are the paying by the click or by the view? I was doing much better a couple of months ago. What does this mean?
imgreencat, you are not alone, It seems like my traffic is steady yet, my earnings are almost the same as they were a year ago when the hub ads program came first out and I have significantly more hubs! I had a couple of days were they were picking up but now back again to how they were a year earlier, go figure!
You CPM shows what you earn per 1000 views, has it gone down? If so, I guess your hubs are attracting lower paying ads just as part of natural variation over time (as I understand it PPC and PPV elements are included in Hubads--but I could be wrong). My CPM wanders up and down quite a lot.
Thanks guys, I don't understand much of panda etc. but it seems like things started going bad the last time there was a delay on the earnings and this time again. I don't know if there is a connection with the two but it sure seems like there is something going on.
On a different subject, has anyone tried self publishing a book?
It's all aparently how you write and what you write about....don't just rely on Google for traffic and always have a back up plan ie: Your own websites and something that could tie into your online content offline....Create more income options rather than a small handful here!
If you CPM is 5-6 dollars that is pretty typical.
I had a CPM dip late last year but it is back up now.
If you want to talk about self publishing a book a new thread might be in order?

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

I am talking about best and worst scenarios. I have been through many posts on the forum and other places. From what I understand, you can hope to make (in the best case) about $1 per month per hub. So is that true for...

I just stumbled across this place and the only information I really ascertained was that 60% of add revenues, but that doesn't really help me since I don't know what it is 60% of, so, how much money does someone...
