Page views, impressions, earnings totally off

    The data collecting is so far off it's a joke. I've looked at may page views daily on this particular profile, and they have been consistently above a specific level every day. Without any apparent reason they have been so adjusted and/or revised, it appears it is a technical glitch. They've been completely changed from what they have been - especially since the introduction of Tatring.

    Not only that, the impressions on a 60/40 basis aren't accurate, and neither are the earnings.

      Do you have hubs moved to Pethelpful or Tatring? That could be where the weirdness is in reporting.

      If you are seeing this discrepancy on Hubs that were moved to niche sites, Paul Edmondson addresses this issue here: http://hubpages.com/community/forum/135 … ost2799059

        My issue is not with the Amazon sales, but with the pageviews and their associated income.  Both are half of what they should be for the Feb 23-24.

          My comment was in response to Cowboy Tom's original post.

          What are you using to determine what the views should be?

            What I saw on the actual day versus what now shows on the Ad Program Earnings report.  It's as though the Pet Helpful pages are not being added into the account for Ad Program revenues.

              All earnings with an asterisk are not certified, meaning they are not the final values and we are waiting on info from our ad partners, so if the info you saw on the day of was incomplete, it very well may have changed in the meantime.

                Asterisks are gone, and it is still wrong for February 23-24, however everything thereafter looks correct and better than before the move.  It's just a few dollars for me, but might be more for someone else.

                  Same here, asterisks are gone and February 23-24 numbers are way lower than the average.

                    This is likely caused by lower CPM for those days. There aren't any reporting issues I'm aware of at this time.

    Normally I would spring to HP's defense, but these days you could very well be right.

    Mine are totally off for Feb 23-24.

      Solaras, same here. Feb 23-24 are abnormally low. There's an asterisk though besides mine, so hopefully they're just pending.

    Feb. 23 and 24 look alright to me - they might be a trifle low, but then they might not, either.

    One the other hand, today (the 29th), I have 0 earnings for the month.  And a reasonable amount for the month of Feb.  Is Feb. 29 relegated to the twilight zone?
