    How to calculate eCPM

    How is eCPM calculated?

    I would have thought it was earnings divided by the number of page impressions and then multiplied by 1000. However, if I do that calculation on one day's data I get a slightly different result from Google's own eCPM calculation for that day.

    I have written my own program to analyze the reports, so I would like to know how Google calculates it.

    ecpm is easy to calculate: Just take total earnings for a day, week, year, or whatever and divide by the number of 1,000-impression blocks. For example, if you have $5,000 in earnings and 1,000,000 impressions:

    $5,000 divided by 1,000 = $5 ecpm

    If you have $1,200 in earnings and 780,633 impressions:

    $1,200 divided by 768.633 = $1.56 ecpm

    ecpm is a useful metric because it lets you compare AdSense with other sources of income. It also gives you an overall view of performance trends. Let's say, for example, that you've got a site on ice fishing. In winter, you earn $5,000 a month from AdSense, but then summer comes and your AdSense revenue drops to $1,000 a month. If you were to judge AdSense's performance by total revenues alone, you might think that AdSense was performing poorly, when in fact revenues are down only because traffic drops in the summer on your ice-fishing site. By comparing month-to-month ecpm instead of total revenues, you get a more accurate picture of AdSense performance.
    I found this on another forum, but sincerly I 'm not sure that's right

    eCPM = (revenue/number of impressions delivered)*1000
    So basically what Leon83 has got from other post is the correct calculation...

    What happened to the other 12,000 impressions in your second example?
