When I checked my daily earnings a few days ago, they were 3x higher than they are today. I don't mean that I made more on those days and less today. I mean that I made $6 (imaginary amount) on December 7th, but now my account says I only made $2 on December 7th. Again, these are imaginary figures, but my earnings were 3x higher a few days ago.
I've never had this happen before, and I've been with HP for years. I'm wondering what caused 3 days of earnings to drop so low the second time I checked them. Where did my missing earnings go?
My income figures have been adjusted for Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. All days show an increase in CPM but a drastic decrease in ad impressions, resulting in less income for those four days.
Just to clarify, I lost 1,523 ad impressions when they were changed from the numbers originally posted. In other words, HP went back and lowered the figures for ad impressions which were first posted and raised the CPM slightly from the figures first posted for these days.
Same here, my earnings for the past several days were adjusted downward.
yeah ditto here, although my earnings isn't dollars, it was 41 cents but dropped to 29 cents went confirmed.
Thanks for the responses, guys. It's a bummer that we're all dealing with this.
Same thing happened for me. On the other hand, somehow an Amazon sale from Friday landed on Tuesday morning. Will it stick? Who knows?
There was a problem reported this weekend that the impressions were the same for five days in a row. This problem was corrected, and apparently, this meant that some of the numbers had to be adjusted downwards.
I was just about to post in the technical problems about this.
My impressions for Friday, Saturday and Sunday are over 40% down on the previous weekend, yet traffic is only down just over 9%.
I've never had any concerns about the ad impression stats before, but this is a bit of a worry.
Regarding the ad program earnings, there was a processing issue that caused ad impressions to be reported incorrectly (they were the same for four days in a row, as Millionaire Tips pointed out). It was corrected yesterday and earnings have since been certified. Sorry for the inconvenience, everyone!
Thank you for the explanation. I just noticed that the same impressions figure was reported four days in a row originally, which never happens in real life, so your explanation makes sense.
I'm not sure it has been corrected properly. I'm down nearly 42% compared to the previous weekend. That's a huge difference!
I think whatever was done needs double checking.
That would affect amazon or ebay sales but not ad impressions. Ad impressions are based on traffic.
Let's say totally fictitiously that my normal ad impressions are 5,000 over Friday, Sat and Sun, then with almost the same traffic you only get 3,000 impressions. There's something not right with that!
I agree Susana S. I, too, have experienced an approximate 40% reduction in page views, earnings, etc. But, I also noticed something else that is quite perplexing. While in the month of December, my total earnings for November was reduced. The reported total earnings for November displayed on my Earnings Reports page is approximately 40% less this week (in Dec.) than it was last week (in Dec.). I don’t know if this is due to the impressions miscalculation adjustment, or a few sold items being returned, but I find it very interesting that there is an approximate 40% reduction in all of my page views, impressions, clicks, sales and earnings across the board. - 40 must be the magic number.
Glad I'm not the only one seeing issues with impressions. Luckily things seem back to normal for me now but I will be keeping a very close eye on them now. I would recommend contacting Hubpages about the change you've seen for Novembers earnings and see if you can get any clarification.

My earnings over the last 5-6 days TANKED, anyone else notice this? What happened there? Will it return to normal?

I just checked earnings for yesterday and I have half the impressions I normally get despite having similar traffic to the previous days. What's going on?

Another glitch? Zero impressions for Monday on the earnings page, but Tuesday looks about right. I should have about the same number of impressions for both days.

My earnings have just updated for the first time in a few days. For some reason my Saturday earnings are showing as nothing. It also says I have 0 impressions for Saturday. Anyone else seeing this?
