Right. Just a view, a unique one, at that.

I dunno if a click registers as more than one impression or if it just pays you more and thus jacks up your eCPM.

Mysteries.

What is considered an okay eCPM?

Because I don't know why, but I think it is odd that my video has an eCPM of $0.07.

What does eCPM even mean and how is it determined?

Oh, so it is a view? Aha, cool. Now I know! And really, who cares how much it pays, as long as it's making some money >:)

eCPM isn't something you should really be basing anything off of. It is simply how much you've made divided by the number of impressions you've had. If you switch your time periods up the eCPM changes because your impressions change (last week vs all time, for example).

It stands for... estimated cost per mille or something. So how much you make per 1000 impressions. But I must reiterate: it's not like the eCPM is magically generated then you make money based off of that. Mysterious variables determine how much you make in cents, then the system takes that and does a very simple division to report your eCPM.

At least this is how I've construed it after mucking around a tad. Anyone in the greater know feel free to correct me.

Not to be a stickler, but a lot of NG Flash content contains NG Audio content that is licensed under a 'Noncommercial' license. Since the authors of the Flash are now profiting from their creation, they're breaking the license.

Tom, you might want to have a think about this.

Yeah, probably a whole $0.03 at most that they can't even cash in till they get $50.00.
Besides, when you submit a flash, you can put a percentage that goes to the audio artist.

If you didn't make money on the 17th and 18th you wont get stats from the graphs or charts. You can keep track of growing impressions by setting it to "this month" or for more stability, "all time." For example, this morning it had my April impressions (user page ads) at 1600 or so, and now it's higher. No pretty hourly graph updates though.

Is this your scenario?

Indeed, there's a myriad of variables. Different ads potentially have different "rules" etc. I dunno if it's feasible for anyone to try and map it out.

Question.

My eCMP is decreasing RAPIDLY.

At first it was $3.69(Surprisingly) then it changed to $1.26 then to $0.83 then to $0.23 and now it is at $0.11.

Why is my eCMP decreasing so rapidly and how can I get it back up? :O

Very cool, love that I can make money off of all my old NG submissions now. Now I've made $0.31 from Portal Fighter II for example, the first money I ever saw from that game!

Tom, you might want to have a think about this.

The users have the right to license their work to contractors for profit it they wish (I'm pretty sure the license explicitly states that). This would include themselves.

This is going to be awesome, I just have one question. How do I make money off of this? What do I have to do to make money, I want to be more part of Newgrounds, so I just want to know. Can you, Tom, or anyone else what to do? For anyone that does, I would be happy, and would like to thank you for helping me.

It's an amazing system that really works! Not only does this get people to start promoting themselves and the website, it creates a general feeling of overall goodness towards the members. We'll see about this!
