Looking at my account stats this evening, 28 Feb. 2017, at 19:00 hours, PST, I was taken aback to see "earnings this month $0.00. Since it is not yet 1 March, and HP HQ is in the same time zone I am, it was rather a shock, as I've been following my earnings, and I've earned more than nothing at all.
If HP were in some other time zone where it would already be "next month," this would be understandable. But it is not. Was this a glitch, or is there some other reason for setting the calendar ahead by a day early?
I'm on the East Coast, it's 12:30 AM now and mine still shows the total for February. I don't expect it to change to zero until it's midnight in California. It's funny that yours is already zero Sherry.
Maybe it's a result of the AWS server problems today. Talking to various people, I noticed that it's not affecting everyone everywhere. It hit my stock platform today too. HubPages uses AWS for image storage but not sure if they use it for the financial data.
In case you don't know, AWS is the Amazon Web Service many companies use for their cloud storage.
It does not name a month; it just says, "this month"
In the other box, where it shows, last month, this month, and last 7 days, my Feb. earnings do show correctly, so I was very puzzled. It is now 22:28 hours, PST, and I just checked again; still says $0.00.
That's just the "settings" page. The heading on top saying "HubPages Earnings Program: $0.00 so far this month" must just be taking it from a different database that already rolled ahead to March. I can't check to see if mine was the same anymore since it's already Match 1st now. But that solves this puzzle.The "Earnings Reports" tab is always correct, as you noticed (except for unaudited earnings).
@Will Apse: It was not my intention to create 'clickbait.'
I was merely rather stunned at the supposed results I had seen on my earnings 'landing page,' and I was tired, it was late at night, and my initial reaction to what I saw was "What gives, here?!"
So, I titled my post with my reaction. So sorry if you took it as 'clickbait.' That is not something I ever do by design or otherwise on purpose. That was your perception, and therefore your issue; not mine. I am not responsible for your choices in how you choose to react to any given writer, just as no other writer is responsible for how I may choose to react to anything they have written.
This is not possible.I just checked my account and there were 0 impressions and 0.00 earnings for Monday January 2, 2012. I know this because I sign in every day and even though HP views might be less my search results...
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,...
Update - 6 hours ago. I see no increases after the new layout was out. Then, the traffic updates freeze. Now the update i can see, 6 hours ago and the traffic crashed badly. Adsense CPM too gone low after the new layout...
