    Usually payments go out on the 28th.  I am nervous with all the upheaval the past 2 weeks that something will happen and we wont be paid???

      Paid? We get paid? Why didn't someone tell me?

      Sorry, Brie, I couldn't help myself - and my reply is not helping you, either. wink

      If HP were to miss the deadline, it would be an absolute and historic first. big_smile

      It is not even 9:00 a.m. yet on the west coast. Give them time to get their coffee and settle in.  smile

        What's the point of creating an attention-seeking panic thread for something that hasn't happened yet?  Mine has always come in the evening.

      I just got it. I didn't even realize it was this late in the month until you brought it up.

      Yes, I've got mine.

      I'm only worried that there soon won't be one to get if things continue at this rate.

    It usually comes in the afternoon or evening - no need for panic yet wink If it doesn't arrive today, as paradigm mentioned, that would be a first.

    Mine usually doesn't hit PayPal until 3:30 EST.
    And they always pay on time.
    They have to because I keep throwing that fact up in Bubblews' face.

    I never get paid until at least 3 pm eastern.   It usually happens within two hours of that tiime.

    They would have made an announcement if they were changing something. I am east coast time and my payment on the 28th is never there until about 4 P.M.

      Yep.
      If you hit 50 or over in August you get paid today.

    Has anyone's earnings dropped in the last 2 days as a result of massively decreased traffic? I assume that's what it is but I don't know for sure. I haven't seen earnings like this since I was a newbie. No numbers, please, it's against the rules. Just want to know if anyone else is seeing this.

    1. SmartAndFun profile image91
      SmartAndFunposted 2 years ago in reply to this

      My traffic is steady, if not a bit up. My earnings are along those same lines.

      Still waiting for a crash; I'm hoping it doesn't arrive.

      EDITED TO ADD: I have never not been paid by HubPages.
      Brie, do you write for Demand Studios? This seems like a Demand Studios-type panic, LOL. It gets crazy over there and pay can be shaky, or at least it was that way back when I wrote there.

        Thanks, SmartAndFun. Good to know all are not affected.

        Paid - Thank you HP - and according to Google my numbers which were down 30% have rebounded some today.  Fingers crossed that we all see some positive numbers next week!

          How do you check your numbers?  Google Analytics Realtime Over-view?

            Yes and for the day it was already up 100 views at 3:00  over the previous day.

      Mine fell. I assumed it had something to do with the technical changes they said they were making.

      With all the server issues in the last day or two, traffic was bound to be much lower than usual.   

      Hubbers have the patience to keep the refreshing the page or come back later, but most search engine visitors would just give up and go somewhere else.

      It's very unfortunate that HubPages decided to upgrade their server now rather than before the transfer, because it makes everything look so much worse than it probably is, but I assume they had their reasons.

        Good point, Marisa. It didn't occur to me that the tech issues are affecting searchers as well. The timing of all that's going on is not good.

      Needless to say, your post immediately caused me to go check mine. Yep, paid.

    I was paid too..I was worried because of all the upheaval as of late.

      Interestingly, my latest redemption request at a certain other site happens to have just exceeded the 30-day mark. For some strange reason, there is nary a peep about it on PayPal. This totally surprises me.

      1. Solaras profile image91
        Solarasposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Shocking... they must be doing a server update too, and perhaps have lost all of the data on funds due to their contributing writers.  That's typically how it works on the Internet.

          My views and likes over there are truly abysmal these days. Oh, well.

        Sometimes it takes longer than the 30 days by a few days.  This happened to me last time.

    I ge money in my paypal on the 28-29 midnight of each month and so is the case this time as well. No problems there. HP has been on the dot with payments.

    Traffic is down 40% when I last checked. The stats haven't updated since the past 39 hours so it's impossible to judge how much actual effect the Panda rollout has had.

    The update coming on a weekend will make the drop more severe. The actual impact can only be fathomed once the new week rolls out.

    Always on time. I don't notice the time, but I always get paid on the 28th. No worries. :-)

    I got two lots yesterday - two accounts.  I only get an email for one of them though, which is odd... but I logged into Paypal and both payments are in there.

    So, I am new and kind of confused still as to how you make money with HubPages? I mean besides the Adsense, Amazon and Google stuff. I have yet to have 10 hubs so they suggest to wait on those. Is it still possible to make money without those, while I build up my hub library?
