Should We Start Predicting When Our Stats Are Going To Be Updated!

    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.

      Aren't we all "Hubbers" now?

      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.

    My stats updated nine hours ago. Not to mention, Analytics stats are real-time with more info, and they have been active this entire time.

    BTW, Linda, as I was with Squidoo for a few months longer than I've been here, should I count myself local or the enemy when you decide to start throwing slurs?

    1. LindaSmith1 profile image61
      LindaSmith1posted 3 years agoin reply to this

      I was over there as well, but jumped ship before the ship finally sank. Would you have wanted your stats, your earnings, etc be put on the back burner if Squidoo had acquired another site.

        We are all Hubbers now, there are just more of us.

      2. lisavollrath profile image94
        lisavollrathposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        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.

        But hey, thanks for the warm welcome!

    No earnings since Sept 15th, and the asterisks, which are common, since the 12th with no change.   In the grey bar for last month, this month, Pending for yesterday which has gone on for several days.

    1. Writer Fox profile image76
      Writer Foxposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      OK.  Me, too.  Eventually it will update and all the earnings will be there.  This has happened many times and it is nothing to worry about so long as everyone is experiencing the same thing.

        I'm glad to see I'm not the only one. I was starting to get worried. I use my stats to dictate what I should write and was almost ready to put a freeze on new articles, but I guess I'll plug on.

          MsBizPro - Do you have Google Analytics? You can at least see page views (total and each hub/article) with it.

        Well, a significant amount of content was added to the site, so I would not be surprised if that did play a part in the bug.

          Well indeed I am sure it could be. However,  given what HubPages are having to contend with and probably having to allocate resources to seems like a minor inconvenience

      1. Writer Fox profile image76
        Writer Foxposted 3 years agoin reply to this

        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.

              Actually, WF, the visitor counts  were stuck too.

              And, are you insinuating that somehow the former squids did this? 

              When Paul clearly stated that it was a Google bug?

          Perhaps Google has detected that Squidoo moved to HP and is waiting to see how we do. I am not personally putting Squidoo down, I am only saying that Google might be.

      I was so used to how Squidoo was that when I had bugs, I posted in the special forum with a bit of an attitude, not expecting anything to ever get done about them.  I sure was glad to be wrong! 

      The involvement from above is wonderful.

    The explanation for all this is really quite simple. There is more traffic and money that need to be added up. big_smile https://www.quantcast.com/hubpages.com

      Rock_njposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Really?  As if computer programs can't handle more traffic and money?  The problem is the programs they are using don't work well and/or crash, or else the vendors they use for data are having problems.

    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.

    1. Dressage Husband profile image81
      Dressage Husbandposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      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.

      Relax people.  It's all good.
