It is very frustrating to go 36 hours without my account page updating. This has been going on for several weeks. Multiple users have posted about the problem and ye4t there is still no resolution. Is this the best we can expect from HP since the acquisition of Squidoo?
This has been an ongoing problem and we've not been given any answers other than admin is aware of it. We're told to go to Google Analytics. If that's the case, why have the reporting that is available to us in our accounts?
Seems to me HP has bitten off more than they can chew in the Squidoo acquisition.
Most of my frustration stems from the silence of HP staff on this issue. There should be someone I can contact regarding a technical issue rather than starting a forum topic and hoping they see it.U;m sure HP will bounce back eventually from the acquisition but I am afraid a lot of good writers are going to bounce somewhere in the meantime.
Hi I just wonder did hubpages have a problem with updating the account stats, and page views before, prior to last month? I have not had any movement on my page view stats in over a month, yet Hubpages ad a daily earning to my account???? I am not at all accustom to not being able to track individual articles for traffic, and how I earned my revenue. I have Google Analytics, however it is frustrating not having some way to compare Hubpages against Google. Has Hubpages had these glitches before it acquired Squidoo? I can't seem to get any answers from Hubpages. Hopefully a long time Hubpages member can answer this question.
Yes, there were such problems before HubPages acquired Squidoo and before the server change, but not often, and I seem to recall them being resolved more quickly.
Yes, the stats did get stuck from time to time, but it always got fixed within a few days.
Mine has been out for 3 days as it says on my account page. I have not seen any updates since Wednesday afternoon.
Mine are still frozen, and it is very disappointing! Google shows an uptick, but Google and HP numbers never match, so I'd like to know where I am based on what I have expected to see from HP stats.
They keep telling me that Analytics is more accurate but I need to see HP stats. HP pays me and it just seems weird that they are able to calculate earnings without the stats. I need to see my views toi be sure that I am getting the right amount of pennies each day. Three days is too long not to know what my views are....just saying.
I questioned which stats are used to calculate earnings on a forum thread a while ago, and have looked all over the help section, but found no answer. I actually don't think the stats on our stats page are used to calculate earnings, although they could be updated according to the ones that are, whichever they may be ... I'd be very interested to know how it works.
HP stats and earnings are an enigma to me...lol. I just want my stats updated as often as possible. Three days is too long!
I'm not sure if what I just said makes much sense, but yes, three days is too long!
I am not sure if it made sense...sorry. It's just that when it comes to traffic stats vs earnings I get all stupid. it seems like rocket science to me. I don;t understand why there is a separate stat that calculate my earnings. I understand that 1000 or so views will get me around 3 dollars. That's all I understand from this and that some articles will earn me more based on what the advertisers pay. Above that my mind goes blank!
Matthew addressed it in a similar thread a while back. He says they're done by different systems. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/125595#post2652872
HP should make it a sticky so people don't worry that the lag in traffic reports means a loss of earnings.
Makes you wonder. HP knew what it was getting before the move. It seems that if they decent IT people, etc, common sense would have tld them their servers would not handle everything. Seems like they did not prepare ahead of time. This is like buying the contents of another store, to move to your store, run ads then tell people sorry, but we don't have stock out yet because we didn't get the shelves or make the space for it. But be patient because we are working on it. Yeah right! We have heard we are working on it since the Acquisition.
I just did some checking. Weebly ranks in the 200's for Alexa while HP ranks close to 600. Weebly ranks 8 with Google page rank checker while HP ranks a 6. Although Weebly is a create your own site, you can still use Adsense,Chitika, etc.
I think it's been more like 72 hours without statistics update. It also seems that earnings is delayed today as well, unless I really made 0 cents yesterday! Can someone confirm this?
Check out Redgage. Comparable site and you can make money from a greater variety of content. They don't seem to have issues.
I found Redgage to be awful. Buggy things would not load half of the time. Then I had a problem getting into my account and pressed their reset password button, which did not work. In fact it reset the password, but did not tell me what it was, and their support did not know how to fix it. So I am locked out of that account forever. I never made a cent there anyway.
Whoa wait...RedGage is working?
My bank hasn't updated since December last year and I have emailed them about it several times.
I thought they were dead.
Just checked and no update since December 1, 2013.
Yes, I haven't had any movement in my earnings for over a year and I am very close to cash out. I have a hard time logging in and posting anything.
I didn't realize they had a history. Well, at least I can use them to drive traffic to my other stuff for free. That does suck that Redgage doesn't pay. I can't believe they are still around....
Thanks Linda, I can forgo being more neurotic than usual today. Aubrey, I will definitely check out Redgage. I've been spending most of my free time to write on InfoBarrel. Their interface is a bit tedious to use, but once you get the hang of the nuances, it becomes more bearable. Every Hubber should read the articles pertaining to Hubpages on Infobarrel, it is scathing!
Also, let's give HP a break, okay they let their unbridled greed get the better of them, but I'm sure they'll bounce back eventually.
The problem is due to the server change, not the Squidoo content acquisition.
One chimes in about Redgage and how they don't seem to have any issues, another says they have nothing but issues, one current user wasn't aware that they were still operational. I love the internet!
I don't goth, although I'm sure they have lovely traditions besides death, drinking blood and the color black. Hey, I've always been curious--is that a puppy or a really big guinea pig?
I've just perused your hubs and I can make an educated guess, it's safe to assume it's a puppy. Judging from the content of your hubs, I don't have to ask you i
I was raised by the High Priestess of Cat - she is appalled by the dogs, and occasionally deigns to pat them clumsily on the head. That is Dash at 2.5 weeks old in the photo, and yes they look like guinea pigs at that age. lol. You are correct, more of a dog person than cat, more of a cat person than god...
I'm relatively new hear. How exactly do you earn money? I've tried signing up for google adsense, but they have my wrong email, or won't let me sign up. Any suggestions would be helpful.
This link takes you to the Learning Center where you'll find all you need to know about signing up for Google Adsense on HubPages: http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/signup-AdSense
thanks. I guess if my earnings say I earned zero, then I am getting nothing, right?
I see that the blue arrows are growing, yet how can that be when the stats have not been updated.
Jayne: I doubt it since the arrows have been changing all along without any update.
I will be surprised if they do anything this upcoming week, but we are close to the 28th of the month.
Mine hasn't been refreshed for more than 4 days. I understand it's a technical problem that will be resolved soon but I still feel a little frustuating.
Same as Rajan Jolly, my stats haven't been update in over 4 days, my Adsense hasn't been updated in over 2 days, and my traffic is still just 1/5 of what it used to be before the acquisition.

This drop in traffic seems to have affected the majority of us who transitioned here from Squidoo. After we updated our articles are traffic virtually stopped dead. The question is why? Was our redirect from Squidoo killed with the update? What the heck happened? Please try to figure out why the...

I saw where this issue has been addressed in the past and supposedly corrected. But for many weeks now, especially toward the end of the week and weekends, my HubPages stats will not update for hours and sometimes even days at a time. An example would be "Includes data from 17 hours ago and...

Hello all ex-squids-now-hubbers! I thought it would be a good idea for all of us to post our experiences with applying for an adsense account here. I would love to hear all success and failure stories, as I think it would help all of us in understanding what we should (and should not) do and when....

Hi everyone! I have a quick announcement about the Universal Analytics upgrade that should hopefully clear up any remaining confusion. As lobobrandon pointed out, Google started auto transferring users to UA sooner than planned, and most— if not all— of you were already moved over. I...
