Today we also rolled out a few other changes, besides the eBay cut over.
- The video capsule now supports Metacafe and Revver videos - For URL Trackers, you can now see who you have referred, just click on the tracking token from here. At the same time we eliminated the earnings estimates as they were a tremendous source of confusion and not that accurate anyway. - Until the end of the month we upped the revenue share from 60% to 70% to compensate for the AdSense outage. - Plus a handful of other minor changes, which you may or may not notice.
If you run across any problems, please let us know. Thanks!
_______________________________________________________________ I am having trouble typing text content into a new hub. The text is not formatting correctly. Is there a problem with all pages or just mine? Thanks, Retired06
I don't think there is a wide spread problem. You may want to try selecting the text you typed in, and then choose "paragraph" from the formatting drop down list (assuming you want it formatted as a paragraph).
I don't think we're going to restore those estimates. However, if you want to calculate something similar yourself, just take the CPM you are seeing with AdSense on HubPages plus the stats from the tracker page:
Thanks 'paul' for the formula. I accept your verdict happily. Only thing I will mention here that the rough estimates shown before the changes always pursuaded hubbers like me to try to bring new hubbers to hubpages. I don't know I'll have or not have same zeal after these changes. It can just be imagined from the fact that earlier i was looking for referral trackers whenever I logged on but I did it rarely after this change.
Found a change.. I think... You guys removed the thing underneath the option to set link to option in new browser or open in the same browser. I don't remember what was under the option scroll box thing, but it's gone now.
I believe this is fixed now. We store a cached version of the total number of published hubs for performance reasons (since it is somewhat expensive to calculate in real time). Under certain circumstances it doesn't get updated immediately when the actual number of published hubs for a user changes.
Relache, I just published a test hub that includes a revver and a metacafe video. You should be able to get it to work by just pasting in either the URL to the video, or the embed tag that they provide. I used URLs in this case.
Other than putting the video in the right column (where it will be half the width), there is no way to adjust the size of videos. It might be something we offer in the future, but probably not the near future.
