The data collecting is so far off it's a joke. I've looked at may page views daily on this particular profile, and they have been consistently above a specific level every day. Without any apparent reason they have been so adjusted and/or revised, it appears it is a technical glitch. They've been completely changed from what they have been - especially since the introduction of Tatring.
Not only that, the impressions on a 60/40 basis aren't accurate, and neither are the earnings.
Do you have hubs moved to Pethelpful or Tatring? That could be where the weirdness is in reporting.
If you are seeing this discrepancy on Hubs that were moved to niche sites, Paul Edmondson addresses this issue here: http://hubpages.com/community/forum/135 … ost2799059
My issue is not with the Amazon sales, but with the pageviews and their associated income. Both are half of what they should be for the Feb 23-24.
My comment was in response to Cowboy Tom's original post.
What are you using to determine what the views should be?
What I saw on the actual day versus what now shows on the Ad Program Earnings report. It's as though the Pet Helpful pages are not being added into the account for Ad Program revenues.
All earnings with an asterisk are not certified, meaning they are not the final values and we are waiting on info from our ad partners, so if the info you saw on the day of was incomplete, it very well may have changed in the meantime.
Asterisks are gone, and it is still wrong for February 23-24, however everything thereafter looks correct and better than before the move. It's just a few dollars for me, but might be more for someone else.
Same here, asterisks are gone and February 23-24 numbers are way lower than the average.
This is likely caused by lower CPM for those days. There aren't any reporting issues I'm aware of at this time.
CPM is the same approximately over the entire week - impressions are half of what they should be. There is a glitch in your system.
I just checked as well, CPM is the average, it's the impressions that are a record low. Can something have happened as the pet articles were being switched over?
Is this happening only for transferred Hubs or across all of your Hubs?
Normally I would spring to HP's defense, but these days you could very well be right.
Feb. 23 and 24 look alright to me - they might be a trifle low, but then they might not, either.
One the other hand, today (the 29th), I have 0 earnings for the month. And a reasonable amount for the month of Feb. Is Feb. 29 relegated to the twilight zone?

How many page views does it take to create $1 ?Now; I realist that page views and hub revenue is not 100% directly proportionate, however I wondered what people found is generally the average revenue generated from a certain amount of page views, I have a rough idea it might be around;400 pages...

Since I migrated here from Squidoo two months ago, I've seen a steady stream of threads in this forum, complaining about lost page views. There are a lot of theories about why it's happening, and how much it's happening, and what can be done to get into Google's good graces.Google is not my #1...

It's been quite some time I didn't check on my earnings. What a shock to find that my ad "impressions" were less than half of my page views. If I am not wrong they should be the same.

I just disabled Hubpages ad program last week to test out how much I would earn/lose if I just kept Adsense. My page views are not counting--the articles viewed showing on my account in Hubpages is more than what Adsense is picking up, by a large number. I checked and Hubpages is linked...

There are a lot of hubbers that believe that the traffic stats inform the earnings figures. Considering that the traffic stats have not been working well lately it has got people worried that they aren't getting the earnings/impressions that they should be and this is damaging writer trust in HP....
