Earnings pending is just like so many things in my life because I nearly always find I am waiting about for somebody or other, something that should be done to be completed, or someone who owes me to actually pay me!
No panic here, I have nothing to vent about. Sometimes it takes a little longer for hubpages to get their numbers, but they always manage to get them done. The way I look at it, one of these times, I will sign into hubpages and see my earnings take a big jump when the missing days are tallied.
I think it must be very difficult for a staff of 21 to manage page view updates, etc for so many people. Like most people, I get a little charge out of running to my computer each morning to see how many people have read my articles. When that figure isn't there, it's kind of a letdown. On the other hand, when catch up day arrives, it's like Christmas! Nonetheless, we're already in day 5 and month's end is near. I'd sure like to know where I stand as this has been my best month ever!
The thing is...it's nice to know because then you can gauge what needs to be done on your blog..what's working and what isn't. Not knowing is like writing in the dark. It doesn't help to get them all at once because those days are lost forever. It's irresponsible I think.
I don't need to vent. If my earnings don't move for a few days, I don't panic. And I certainly don't sic the HubPages engineers on this so-called problem because they don't need my petty crap. Retirement has taught me to be gracious. Carry on, HubPages staff!
While I'm not upset or anything I would like to know what my earnings are. I'm now showing pending for 7/25, 7/26, 7/27 and 7/28. I think its a bit unusual for HP to get this far behind. But it's no big deal to me, it will get updated when they get caught up.
My stress levels have been rising for the past 3 days. Yes I know they will catch up eventually and we will most probably see the earnings from the past 4 days tomorrow, but still. I need my instant gratification! I have had tens of people viewing my hubs without seeing my earnings increase by cents. I cannot stand it! HubPages owes me about 15 cents by now!
It seems we go through this at least once a month. Does anyone work here, or is it just that whom ever is responsible for earning updates goes on vacation for the week? I agree that it seems a tad unprofessional to say the least.
As I have stated numerous times, the delays are usually due to delays in Adsense and Ebay reporting. These delays are part of the reason we get paid a month later...it always works out in the end. Every single site I work with has had delays in reporting from time to time.
The Googlebot visits new hubs within 30-60 minutes while they are in 'Pending' mode and the NOINDEX tag is in place for 24 Hours. This means that the bot does not index the page, and does not return for days or weeks....
