...would someone please drop a note?
Meanwhile, I'm going to try to claw and scratch my way across the Straight AdSense payout finish line this month. Probably the last one of those I'm ever going to see as well.
[A reminder to not post specific numbers, that is still a TOU no-no.]
What kind of note would you like dropped? LOL! As far as payout, mine was every month for a couple of years until the last two months when the bottom dropped out. Not sure what happened. Any ideas?
I have not a clue, but I'm beginning to think the disaster is permanent.
Ugh. I hope not. Is anyone else talking about this?
There's been lots of sporadic/periodic rants. For me, November was when the decline started. Then come January, everything really went to hell.
I don't know about sudden improvement, but my numbers have been steadily increasing for the past few weeks both with regards to views and CPM. Since my hubs are mostly seasonal, this is the time of year when things start going well, but the point is that I'm doing OK and actually have done better already this year than last year by about 8,000 views.
I had a major improvement late last year, followed by a somewhat drastic drop and then a rise to close to normal (for me). Friday was really bad traffic-wise, therefore money-wise but now has gone back to close to normal. The time I really got decimated was back when the Squidoo acquisition happened, think I lost 2/3 of traffic and earnings. I've never climbed back up to what I was before that disaster.
So what I'm saying is that my situation is close to the way things got post-Squidoo acquisition. Which is not the best but maybe not the worst; a truly wishy-washy position.
I have been writing for many years now on Hubpages for 6 years and I never have had a payout from my adsense. I have a statement of total earnings of over $300 and then a page that looks like I have only $63 toward a payout. I know my articles are not heavy money makers with ads but I have to wonder if the $63 amount is correct after 6 years or the one for $330.82 is correct. I am so dim when it comes to things like this.
If you have total earnings of over $300 with Adsense, then you should have gotten paid by them by now. The threshold is $100. It should have been deposited into your bank account. Not sure if they still do paper checks, but that would have been the other possible way to get paid, don't know what your setup is.
First, click Performance Reports at top. Then click All Time at right and see what that has to say.
Then click on the little Gear at top right, then Payment Settings at left. Check or enter a Payment Method. Check or enter a Payment Threshold.
I received payout every month until November 2015. In February 2016, it plummeted.....Seems like the issue of decreased, abysmal payments is going to be quite a permanent condition around here.
Not to sound insensitive to decreasing earnings, but since the move to Pethelpful my pageviews are up 30% - 40% and earnings are up as well. This is net of the lack of Pinterest traffic and those pet hubs left behind on HP, which now sleep with the fishes. They never got much traffic anyway, so they can rest on the floor of the sea, scattered about the remains of the Edmund Fitzgerald.
I think once they find the mole at Pinterest engineering, we can expect the niche sites to improve our prospects.
Actually, positive news is encouraged here; particularly as to increased HP Ads CPM so I'll know to switch back.
That's good news. Sounds like moving to niche sites is a good move, which is what I was thinking and hoping.
Well, I compared my last 5 days of February using HP Ads to my first 5 days of March using straight AdSense. My March earnings were over 50% higher. What with the number of unknown variables involved, your results may vary.
Until such time as I am advised of a higher HP Ads CPM, looks like I'm sticking with straight AdSense for awhile.
Wow. Do you think using straight adsence gives the articles a little more Google juice i.e more search engine favor because you are using their ad platform? Just spitballing here.
I have never had the courage to switch to Google AdSense on it's own but am really wondering if now is the time to try it.
I would..50% higher is quite significant.
Nah, my traffic is still terrible.
My conclusion is the advertisers who pay for impressions have turned into a bunch of deadbeats, while the advertisers who pay for clicks have not.
Hark! Is good news afoot? http://hubpages.com/community/forum/135 … -they-here

A few days ago, I noticed that a lot of people were talking about changing from HP Ad Program to Google AdSense. I had tried that a few years ago, but switched back pretty quickly because I earned better with HP....
