      Its so sad to know that you have lost your earning. Sorry to say, but its a fair game playing by the Google. If your hub doesn't receive much attention then how can you expect it to get attention from the Google? The rule is simple, your popularity (here I am talking about your hub) is directly linked to your earning. If you receive much attention from readers in the form of views then surely you will get response from the Google in the form of high earning.

      To make sure that you get much attention from viewers, write informative article to ignite interest in the reader. The better your article is, more will be your earning.

      I want to say this in the nicest way possible, but it seems clear you are probably either running your writing through translation software or are really struggling with writing English as a second language. This is the exact type of thing Google is specifically mindful of and looking to remove from their search results.

      You should make your best effort to improve English readability and try again.

      My numbers suuuuuuuuuu$! Lol. I mean they are real bad. Were talking a 65% loss. I can't handle it anymore. I'm going off my diet now and downing a Chocolate cake and washing it down with Whole milk (not skim!)!

    I think you should write a lot more hubs, if you're worried about earnings.. I've been here for about 3 months, and I've managed 44 hubs so far.  Hope to be able to write one every day, but my schedule isn't very flexible. I think if you have the time to post in forums, you should have time to work on future hubs.  Good luck!

    It may help to know that what's going on is being felt by most of us right now, due to things out of our control (Changes with Google, a Panda hit, and HP changes/transitions). My views and earnings are down, too. But it goes without saying to take the advice of your fellow hubbers here about writing more hubs and doing your best to produce quality articles that searchers will find and want to read. I wish you the best and hope all of us see better numbers soon.

      Its the perfect storm. I do not understand why HP decided to do a server update in the middle of the transfer/ transition of the Squidoo Lenses. Then Panda 4.1 hit, so it is impossible to work out what is going on and what the eventual outcome maybe. The phrase 'Thank you for your patience' is working a bit thin. Some updates from HP would be helpful. Cheers,

        Yes, janderson, it is now getting a little worriesome. I created this forum for updates under "Technical Problems:"

        Hopefully, we will get an update this week.

    My views are down too, but not sure if that is a server change issue, a Google issue, or what. I am just going to wait patiently for the dust to settle, and see what happens before I go freaking out, or making drastic changes.

    Well, it looks like I just had my first day of $0.00 in earnings. I wasn't worried until I saw that. It makes me wonder. I've never had a day with no earnings, so I'm hoping it's a glitch.

    1. janshares profile image96
      jansharesposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Mine says the same. Either it's a glitch or it's correct. I hope not but it wouldn't surprise me with all that's been going on.

        Mine says pending, and from GA I know I had 781 views yesterday, so I expect that $0.00 would be a mistake. But not much of one lol.

    MSBizPro: Earnings have not been updated since the 28th.

    1. MsBizPro profile image90
      MsBizProposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      Hmm... that's good to know. It appears as it normally does when the "preliminary" earnings for the day are in, as in, it's saying earnings for the 29th are $0. Typically, it doesn't look that way for me before earnings are updated. (Usually, there's no date there until there's a rough amount there, if that makes sense.)

    I went to earnings reports and selected dates from ...... to today.  The last day that eve shows up is the 28th!

    Since we're showing two very different things, I'm going to assume there's a glitch somewhere...

    I actually was excited a couple weeks ago with my earnings and then all of a sudden I am making less than a dollar a day I am around $.75 a day for 50 hubs. And this was in a two-week time span and I'm not very happy

    Then to boot, I've got someone from blogger that has copied one of  pages -my whole article;  and I don't know what to do about it. Hubpages alerted me to it and I went to the website and it was just a copy and paste deal. So I contacted Google and they replied to me with I can be fined and all these court cost if I was found not doing it right or not submitting it right so I'm scared to death to do anything with it

      I think you are reading too much into Google's stock reply.  You are not lying, so you are taking no risk.  Follow the link and make a report.

        I actually replied to them and told them I wasn't sure what I was doing all I knew was that I had a warning from HubPages and they emailed me back and actually removed that website so that was awesome. But I made $.66 yesterday woo hoo freaking Hoo

    I am now getting 1/3 of views that I was getting on average. It sucks! I was just starting to earn some decent money. I wrote HubPages about it and they gave me a stupid automated response that didn't answer my question. My views have been down sin Sep. 25th which was the same time that HubPages said they were updating their view counting system and that makes me think it has something to do with HubPages and possibly the merger with Squidoo!
