    As a result of ongoing engineering work to increase ad yields, there was a temporary ad issue that affected users with articles on some of our sites for part of the day on 6/27 and 6/28. We are aware of the issue and things should be back to normal by Thursday the 29th. Thanks for your patience!

    Just saw earnings for the 28th and they're close to what they should be so hopefully this means that by tomorrow the earnings will be back to normal.

    The 27th was where the biggest drop-off occurred.

        Very active and doing incredibly well on here. Thanks! Between 3000-5000 views/day with my 30 articles. Not bad.

          @robhampton,

          Ohh wow that's awesome.
          3000-5000 views/day that mean you are doing very well smile
          Your hubs are targeting niche market and they are very specific.

    Hope you have managed to rectify it as my earnings are about half for 27th and 28th :-(
    It's only a few dollars so I guess if ad yields increase after the work is done that might compensate!

      So much for ad yields increasing, they have gone down considerably since this update!

          Glad (for you) that it is not a general downward trend then!

    Now it's showing as finalized. Hmm, well they said the 29th so I'll wait, but there is definitely a problem here

      Wait it IS the 29th. lol. I should know that since I just got paid yesterday.

    Looks like I just need to accept the fact that I just got screwed for 2 days. Oh well. Hopefully the future impressions will reflect what they really are.

      Essentially that's what happened which is fine if the net result ends up more positive but it's still a loss of earnings. I'm just glad it happened during a relative lull in traffic versus the Oct-Jan timeframe.

    CPM seems to have dropped 30% in the last 8 days.
