Not necessarily. Often times the message is up but my earnings have been updated, while my girlfriend's earnings have not.
That said...if you are a "starving artist/writer" relying on when HubPages is going to report your earnings..then gtfo. I currently relocated, and looking for work..struggling with bills until I find a new job. I could give a rat's ass when the earnings are updated. My paycheck will come when it comes. Don't talk down on their business practices just because the system doesn't cater to your obsessive compulsive checking of the stats page.
Let me be succinct, please. Excuses for bad management is all I have heard. That is cool. But if they cannot manage my little tiny account how do you trust them to manage important ones of deal with google?
Eric is right. If someone goes to the trouble of writing an article, then posting it on a site in order to earn some revenue, that person is entitled to see regular and reliable updates on his level of earnings. Repeated excuses just don't "cut the mustard".
x2. This has nothing to do with management. If EPC has not yet been reported, then they can not give you an amount.
ALSO - this has nothing to do with "excuses" and everything to do with useless daily reports. Give me one reason a person should REQUIRE an exact daily amount? This is one of the stupidest gripes I've ever heard on this site. If you don't like it...go somewhere else.
I think HubPages, to resolve this issue...should do away with the estimated earnings entirely. Don't tell us how much we've earned until the entire month is finalized. That won't change my earnings one bit...BUT it will completely eliminate this case of whining and griping. Of course, you will have to find something else to cry about, but then at least we will know you simply need something to criticize HP for.
Or you will go create a website and write a blog on your own, since you seem to know so much about how the system does/should work.
Try living in Italy! Sometimes you don't get paid at all. Sometimes you have to take a reduction. Sometimes your company goes bankrupt. Freelance work is paid after 90 days very often. Waiting a few days for payment seems a luxury!
I was truly not caring so much about the delay, as much as the notice. I think Matt probably hit the nail on the head, they should do away with the notice. Or they could move it to a insignificant spot. Otherwise I might obsess over it. By the way I have never received a single penny from HP.
With 123 hubs, not a penny? That is surprising to me. I see you have only been here 6 months, though. It does take time to build up momentum. Are you here for the money or just for fun? (I think many of us are here for both.) If you're here mainly for the money, there are strategies you can employ to help you get more views, more ad clicks and more Amazon sales.
Actually I think that is the point--he has a lot of hubs and they are not being read. Instead of worrying about fifteen or twenty cents, I would be on a forum shouting "why is no one reading my hubs? what is wrong?"
I am writing articles for this website since past 3 months. At present, I have 38 featured and published hubs. I have joined for Amazon and google Adsense program. Past two months I earned like very less amount, less...
