This month I have steadily seen an increase in my earnings. By lunch time today, it had reached a certain amount, but by tonight it had dropped by almost $5. Why would that be? Is there a precedence for something like this?
You just beat me to it! I just saw that since this morning, my earnings dropped nearly 20%. On my daily breakdown of the last 7 days, I see that the last four days have been wiped out. ??? I'm hoping there is some glitch and this will be restored/corrected ASAP.
Hi all, we had technical issues with processing the data we received from ad networks. The fix is being worked on and we expect to have Ad Program earnings for March 13-16 updated and finalized by tomorrow morning. We apologize for the inconvenience and lack of warning (there is an announcement up in My Account now). Please check back tomorrow. Thanks!
If you go to your account page and click on your earnings listed, as you know it will take you to the page that lists your daily earnings, etc. At the top of that page is an announcement; Processing Delays, etc. They're saying they expect this issue to be resolved by tomorrow morning.
I have lost about $15, so I hope it comes back the same or better than before.
Well, I am seeing some return of earnings. Is the total less than before as Cardisa suggested it might be? Yes! Not by a lot, but it is less which means at least a day's worth of earnings are not accounted for so far. Not happy.
Every time there is a glitch with the payment system the earnings drop. For me it's not computing because of my daily average earning based on my traffic. Sunday was my best traffic day which was reflected in my earnings yesterday. Now the adjustments has reduced my earnings by almost a day, yet Monday's earnings are included. It's making no sense to me.
Same for me, too, Cardisa. I had a really good Sunday for traffic and earnings. The amount is now lower than initially reported. This has happen before as you indicated earlier, very disappointing when you think you made a certain amount. (sigh)
It's hard for me to accept the figures and these are some of the reasons why people don;t stick around. Earnings are not transparent and they should be. People should not be wondering what happened. A clear explanation should be offered and something plausible at that.
What would you consider "transparent"? You are given traffic figures, impression figures and CPM already. We were told that "we had technical issues with processing the data we received from ad networks." - would you like the programming details of what happened to be published for the world to see (and would it do you any good to know them)?
Do you wish HP to make public what it is being paid for specific ads, ruining any competitive advantage we get from using yeild build or the prices HP negotiates?
I think HP does a pretty good job of mixing information given/kept secret. They give us what they can without destroying their competitive stance in software and negotiations, IMO. What else would you like to see before considering earnings to be "transparent"?
You got it! They get bored with all the grass, I think, and want to pretend they are mathematicians. So off to HP they go and the poor programmers have a devil of a time tracking them down through all the hard drives.
Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I...
My Adsense earnings (not the ad program earnings) dropped by two-thirds yesterday yet I have the same amount of traffic as always. This has never happened before. Did I miss some kind of FYI that the page restructuring...
Noticed that my earnings previously posted for Monday the 20th (which were already reflected in my overall earnings and which looked typical to begin with), have now been reduced to something that looks most atypical,...
