I don't participate in earnings here since Google banned me for "invalid click activity." So, I can't answer that question directly. But, I have noticed my daily notifications, where you get a listing of postings from people that follow you or you follow them, has dropped dramatically. Sometimes, I get only two people who have posted anything. Some days, I get no notification at all of latest postings. HP has no one to blame for lack of postings but themselves. Their new rules are so strict, many people have given up.
