My sister told me yesterday that she tried to read several of my Hubs, but when she clicked on them all that came up was a large, banner-style Google ad at the top of the page.
When I looked at my earnings today and saw that I only earned $1 yesterday, I realized there must be a problem. I would appreciate it if you could look into the matter. Thanks!
If your sister named Sessily?
If so, I just replied to her email. From her description it sounds like there may be issues with her computer and/or web browser. My first guess would be that it may be malware of some kind injecting ads (browser toolbar, etc)
As for statistics, they are currently only 57 minutes behind realtime (see http://hubpages.com/my/hubs/stats)
It looks like this was related to an ad issue that has been addressed.
You can find more details here:
I just randomly clicked on several of them and they came up with no problems.
I just clicked 3 of your hubs too and they came up perfectly.
Hi! Thanks everyone for looking into it. I'm glad the issue was just browser. I won't worry about it anymore. : )
My mom tried to read my Hubs today and had the same issue. She said all she saw was a big ad banner at the top....
Interesting. I hope it gets worked out soon. Thanks for your input.

It happened while I checked out the backlink I just made on Snipsly. I clicked back before the page could even load, as it was obviously an accident. But I just checked my adsense account and I have 1 cent more than...

I just clicked one of my own ads by accident. Has anyone ever done this? Do you know if I will get an instant ban or is there a degree of tolerance to this? Surely it happens occasionally to many people. Am a bit...

We recently rolled out a change that makes viewing hubs using a mobile browser a better experience. Basically, we've removed the sidebar and stripped away anything that wasn't essential. We've tested it on...

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start...
