Day 2 and still stats, especially earnings, have not been updated Is everything being put on the backburner due to the acquisition of Squidoo. It seems as though Hubbers should come first.
Paul Edmonson has posted a reply: The earnings data is delayed because of reporting bug/issue with google. They have escalated the issue and we are waiting for them to fix it. As soon as it's fixed, we will update earnings.
As someone who has been involved in a number of M&As I recognise that significant and unforseen events can impact on normal activities. I would prioritise ensuring that the most pressing and important ones were dealt with first and a minor delay in reporting would be low on that list.
I would probably understand that the acquisition and transfer of over 175,000 new pages means the staff has their hands full, making sure the site continues to run smoothly, and doesn't come to a grinding halt.
Maybe a tiny delay in stats isn't the end of the universe, given the fact that the site is still up and viewable.
No. Those are measured by Quantcast and by server logs.
I just hope that Google hasn't detected abuse by automated visits on HP, because there was a problem on the Squidoo site with people creating software programs to visit their articles and to game that system in other ways.
Yeah, it's so very encouraging, isn't it? Lump everyone in with a few cheats who exist on EVERY platform out there. But let's keep making the Squidoo folks feel like second class citizens in every way possible.
Work with big databases and volume has minimal impact. Humans coding errors have way more impact.
Has hubpages ever said their stats (the ones reported to us) are derived from quantcast? That is not the normal business for quantcast - data like this usually comes via google analytics, adobe analytics or server logs.
I will say that my Google Adsense account has not updated in 3-4 days. It shows my daily earning but my combined earnings have not updates. I am assuming that since we get our Amazon earnings updated daily and it has just been the 'ads' not updating that it is most likely Google. Mind you, I am a Squidoo invader (lol) too, so there's a lot I'm still learning, but considering my personal Adsense hasn't updated either, my bet is that it's Google and not hubpages... just my two cents.
Thank you, I have had no Adsense earnings either which is odd as I usually get several cents everyday, sometimes even dollars. I think that the increase in traffic of around 500,000 visits per day for Hubpages, since the acquisition may have something to do with it. Google police may not have realized just how much extra Squidoo was going to bring in and their auditor types may have put us on hold while they check it out, who knows?
However I am sure once they realize the increase is real and permanent we all will get what is due to us. Paul Edmonson is a real gentleman and I believe what he says. I for one am glad to be here and think this will fast become the best site for writers wanting templates and free hosting. The 60 40 split is also more than fair.
I have been on HP for almost three years and have never known them not to pay. Yes, there is currently some kind of glitch via Google, but they will work it out and everybody's accounts will be appropriately updated. I would rather see them take their time and do it right than have a big mess because they rushed to calm everybody down.
After three days of no updates, this afternoon I saw the message that the data was updated five hours ago, and now I see they updated two hours ago. EXCEPT IT HASN'T UPDATED! The numbers are exactly the same as they have been for the past four days now including one that has zero views...
The stats haven't been updated since the past 43 hours as my stats page shows. A very disconcerting feature is that the reported earnings are also simultaneously lower. A check on analytics for the same period shows that the views have gone up in the last 3 days as compared to each earlier day.I...
I see that the small text at the top of the HubPages Page View Stats says they are being updated, but it does not appear that my stats have been changing the last few hours. Has anyone else noticed this? HubPages: Is there any official explanation regarding this stats problem that...
I want to update my info on Amazon Ad Program, but don't know how. Should I cancel and re-apply?I have been on Hubpages with Amazon Ad program for a year, and no income except a few pennies show. I have over a dozen hubs. I would like to redo it and make sure I check the correct...
