Admittedly I don't earn much with the Hubpages Earnings Program - I earn less than a dollar a day. However I noticed since the beginning of this month there was a been a significant drop in my earns per day, they are less than half of what I'm used to getting.
It's a little worrying as I already do not earn much with the program, and am trying my best to earn payout before the end of the year.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Is there anything that I can do to combat it?
Yep, but that's normal. About this time last year, my viewership fell; however, by the end of the month, I had a monster comeback and viewing stayed up for the rest of November and December
This is not normal. Traffic is on the increase but right now I'm losing over 95% of what I use to earn per day. I didn't join the HP earning program. Only using Google Adsense as my main source. I guess Google has blacklisted HP.
There is a problem with AdSense right now. There is another thread about this, and the HP staff is working on it. If you rely on AdSense for your earnings, there's your explanation.
For me, views and earnings have both been up so far this month. I think the best way to improve both is to get as many hubs as possible on niche sites. The HP main site is getting very little Google love these days.
@ Ron, for me, it is an exceptional case. Traffic up, earnings seriously down. In fact, there are no clicks.
The same thing happened to me, I sent the team an email about it. I don't know whether Google decided to Black list the niche sites again or what.
It dropped 95 percent in a day, and I'm frustrated because I was close to AdSense payout. I wonder if the new ad streams had anything to do with it.
Sorry to hear that some of you guys are experiencing the same thing, but at least it's not an isolated incident. I'm hoping that they increase again. Admittedly I have quite a few Hubs about Halloween so I'm used to a dip after the end of October, but this has been much more sever than usual.
In terms of moving over to niche sites, I've been certainly trying to do that, and it does work. I'll keep retouching my hubs so that I can submit them.
thank you for the replies!
Bump. Can we get an update on what is going on with Adsense? I use the HP ads, but always managed to make anywhere from a few cents to a few dollars(on good days) with Adsense, even while on HP ads option. The last 4-5 days, nothing..no clicks, no earnings, but have plenty of page views.
Please, someone enlighten me. Feel free to explain it to me as if I were a 5 year old. Thanks!
AdSense has been totally screwed up since last week. It is costing both Google and HubPages a fortune. They are working on it. Trust me.
Thank you, paradigm. Your calm and apt response was all I needed.
Hi there new to this site and new to marketing, i have been struggling for the last month on getting leads and sales from affiliate offers. So i have had a lot of "tire kickers". They check out the blog or pages and then no sales or they do not click on my links. My links are attractive and there are some banners but they are positioned on the side bar as not to be annoying. I hope business picks up very soon because you cant pay bills from this type of traffic.

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April 1st Conflicker Virus? I was thinking these two things can't be so harmful to my...

Okay - It seems there was an update to the definition of our earnings. I cannot say when it occurred.Basically we are paid for pageviews. One payment per view of article, regardless of how many ads are delivered to the reader, unless they back out before the first ad is actually viewed. Then we...

Currently I'm signed up with Google Adsense and I've been debating whether I should sign up for the Hubpages Earning Program because I'm hesitant to give out my tax information. Or should I worry about this only after I have a decent amount of traffic coming to my hubs?
