Google stats. Not happy.

    I just went to the google adsense account link from my account to check my earnings, and it will only show my monthly earnings, which is 0.00. The link only goes to a mobile app, and will not allow me to view my total earning from day one. It says there is no data available.

    I have not collected a single dime from my time on hub pages. I would  like to know what is going on. Especially when my page views on one hub is up over 40,000. I have yet to check my Amazon earnings, but my bet is it will be zero as well. I have not earned anything there either.

    My hope was to earn money with this site. At last check it was over $7.00, now it's zero. You want to tell me what happened?

    I just checked and both say I have earned $0.00 to date.

      You've probably already done this, but I'd double-check to make sure your Adsense and Amazon ids are filled in correctly in the payment settings part  of your HP dashboard.

      Most of a hub is Hubads not adsense, so it 's possible you've only earned through the Hubads program as broken down on your HP dashboard. Also, it is surprisingly difficult to convert sales from Amazon capsules, so it's possible to have decent traffic and no sales. But with that many visitors you'd think you'd have some by now.

      My Google Adsense earnings are down everywhere. I was getting to payout every month for a year and then after Panda it took me more than a year to get to my next payout.

    Recently, traffic are getting low but I believe sooner or later, traffic will come back as it was.

    I checked my traffic history on Hp. For the months August through November, it was the highest, and had best earnings.  Dropped like a sack of potatoes during holidays.

    Did Google send you a postcard with a pin number on it? If so, did you go to your account and enter the pin? I think once you hit $10-$15 or so, they send you a pin number by snail mail in order to verify that you have given them the correct address and other info. A couple of years ago when they sent me mine, I blew it off or lost it or something, and never entered the number. Eventually, Google assumed I had a faulty/fraudulent/dead account and stopped paying me. I had not logged in to HubPages in months, so it took a while for me to discover that Google was no longer paying me. Once I realized it, I was able to request another pin number and they began paying me again once I verified my account.

    This was maybe two years ago, I think, so I hope I'm recalling this info correctly. I wouldn't be surprised if this happens all the time and there are tons and tons of unverified accounts that are not being paid.

    I did not receive a pin number from Google. However I have moved to a different location within the last year. But, even so, I should still be able to log into my google account, and check my progress from day one. But, it will only show my stats for the last two months, and nothing else. Like I said $0.00

    I have not signed up for the hub pages ad program. So, not sure what an hp dashboard is. I don't spend a lot of time on the internet during the summer months, because I am usually busy having fun doing summer things, like camping, and visiting my friends.

    Winter sucks. So, I will be on the web more often. I would like to write more hubs, but my internet is too slow to post a quality hub, and usually times out before I can submit. But, I am still curious as to what happened to the money I earned? Do I have to start all over again because I didn't receive their stupid card? It seems to me that kind of thing could be done over the internet, in an email.

    But, I wasn't making very much money here to begin with. As a side note, I just checked my google analytics, and in the dates between October 2010 to date I have had 45,658 page visits, and 49,996 pave views. I have been a member longer than that. So something is fishy.

      At the very least you should sign up for the HP Ad program as soon as possible because you will probably earn far more through it than Adsense alone. It will cause your Adsense income to plummet to next to nothing because it will only leave on Adsense paid advert on your articles, but in general virtually everyone does way better on the HP Ads. The income threshold for these is only $50 and is paid monthly into your Paypal account.

      From what I can see, I think pin verification is probably part of the problem.  Here's a link that explains how to request a new pin (make sure you update your address with Google first):

      http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/a … 7&rd=1

      As for the other issues, it sounds like you may have two different AdSense accounts.  You can see the AdSense Publisher ID that is associated with HubPages on your affiliate settings page (e.g. ca-pub-xxxx).  When you sign in to your AdSense account, you should make sure that you see the same number (it's in the upper right hand corner).

        I checked both, and they both claim I have earned $0.00, the same with my Amazon account. When I can get to another computer, with high speed internet. I will check the link you provided. Thanks.

          I assume you know how to look at earnings for all time, not just this month.

            You are supposed to be able to check your stats by date, month, and year. However, The links that used to be there to do that, do not appear. I get a message, saying that there is no data available. But, on Amazon, I was able to go back to 2010, and still $0.00.

            On a good note. Upon joining the hubpages ad program I have made 68 cents in less than a week. That's more than 3 years on both other programs combined.

          If you fail to do the pin verification, 6 months after they sent you the post card you will stop earning through AdSense.  I suspect that you do have an accumulated balance in your AdSense account from before that.  You may just need to play around with the reports in order to see it.

            If I do find that I did make money. Would they back pay me? Because I never did receive a card with a pin. Also, asking them any questions is the same as facebook, you get to post a query, and hope that someone replies to it a forum. Their help pages suck.

              You can request another pin I believe.

              This page explains how to request a new pin.  If you complete the process, you should start earning again, and they will certainly pay out any accumulated balance that you have (once you reach the $100 threshold):

              http://support.google.com/adsense/bin/a … er=1348257

              Make sure that you update the address in your AdSense account before requesting a new pin.

                The link you gave me, will not load on my computer.

    I just tried to access my Adsense account again, and I figured out what the problem is. It will only allow me to view reports in Mobile view, and the classic stats page will not load on my computer. It keeps asking me for a mobile phone number, which I have, but I do not use the internet on my phone. So, for them to send info to it, would not help me.

    Is there a way to bypass this mobile view garbage?
