FIXED: HP share of earnings

    I know we share earnings with HP on a 60/40 basis, but why have I not had a single Adsense view from HP in the last 6 hours?

    According to Analytics, I'm getting healthy viewing figures, but Adsense hasn't moved.

    Every hub I look at has HP's coding on it.

        Actually no it isn't, but thanks for trying anyway Matthew.

        To recap, Adsense views/impressions did not move on my account for at least 6 hours. This happened almost 24 hours ago.

        I expect to see a difference between Analytics and Adsense because Analytics shows all the views, and Adsense only shows impressions when my Adsense account is active.

        I'm not arguing about views versus impressions. I know they are different.

        They are not, and never were, the problem.

        The problem was that my Adsense account showed no new page views for a 6 hour period.

        Anyway, it is resolved now, but I bet a few hubbers are noticing a difference which is probably why you are seeing threads about it. Only those of us online during the problem period can possibly have any idea of what happened.

      Are you still seeing this issue?
      If so, please let me know and I can do some additional research.

        No, Matthew, the issue resolved shortly after I posted.

        It was 8 days ago now! But there was some problem that night.

        It might have been an Adsense issue (as they have had some problems since then), and not Hubpages at all.

        Thanks for responding smile

    My views have remained frozen since 1:00 pm today. It seems to be yet another glitch.........hmm

      What time zone are you? Was 1pm your time about 6 hours ago?

    Oh well, right after I posted this thread, my stats started moving again, but the damage is done.

    Analytics shows me I had views 4 times more than what is shown on Adsense. That means I lost all those potential Amazon sales too.

    I hope HP needed it more than I did.

      Just found this thread, but I caught the frozen adsense a while ago.  I assumed it was adsense, not HP as HP numbers were changing.

      I suddenly got some 400 views in adsense added in, followed in a bit by another 200.  No clicks, but I usually don't see any anyway, so I don't know if I lost actual income or not.  (900 for the day to put those numbers in perspective).

      Why would that have anything to do with Amazon whether adsense or HP?  Unless you think HP put their code on everything that came in?  Doesn't look like it...

        Mine seem to be normal this morning, and last night's have caught up quite a bit - maybe even totally.

        I guess it could have been an Adsense glitch. Hard to tell as we see all of our HP views anyway on stats. It is only on Adsense that we see that 60/40 split.

        All I saw was HP's adsense and Amazon code on my hubs whenever I looked, but I have no idea if they were there all the time or not. I assumed they were, seeing as Adsense wasn't moving.

        Oh well, it is sorted today, I hope.

    I just got 4 views in the last 3 minutes, so according to Analitics I am missing about 890.................hmm

      Who are they catering too? Now we have to take off all our RSS feeds. I customized them and believe they brought me traffic, because I write in several genres. It seems anything to benefit hubbers is being taken away.

        I thought they did, too, but when I took them all out (something like 200 RSS capsules with 4-6 links each) there was no drop in traffic.  In fact traffic from my own subdomain has gone up over time to the point it is second only to google dot com.

        I decided some time ago that all those hundreds and hundreds of links weren't actually doing much at all.

    I'm getting views but no real understanding of how we get anywhere here. It's like we're being worked against. I have more views on one post at Blogger than in three days here. It's got to stop.
