    What is going on with the earnings on HubPages accounts? There are no listed earnings since October 22. I also don't see any announcements.

      It is common for payments to stop sometime during the week prior to payout day.  No doubt this is because of the paperwork involved in paying everybody.  Once we get paid, daily payments will start again.  I've never known HP not to pay us, so don't worry about it.

    Every few weeks there is a delay in reporting earnings and a thread starts up about it. The elves that run HubPages are probably busy with other matters; they will catch up. No need to panic.

    Whatever.  I find it disturbing that earnings have plummeted 50%, and we hear nothing from management, except a contest for Halloween writings. I find the Mavin's original banner bidding concept, that lured HP management into their net, and now seems not to perform, concerning. I find delays in reporting concerning. 

    When we are getting increasing earnings, delays are fine. Sinking earnings equal sinking ship.  We need to hear a plan. We need to hear what is going on with Maven. We hear nothing. My earnings are down 45% but views are only down 20%, so what gives? Let's have a real discussion with management like the old days, or is that not allowed anymore?

      Paul might be busy. He is currently reviewing an offer to be King of The West Coast.

      Perhaps he will throw some doubloons from his elephant after the coronation. 

      Below, is Paul arriving in San Francisco after vanquishing lesser Mavens in the North.

        Come to think of it, today is the 28th. The doubloons are being readied as we speak.

    There is not much scope for earnings at Hubpages. I realise after long five years.

    Yes, no doubt the earnings will update in the next day or 2.  I know they always when it's not been updated for a few days.  Over the past few weeks I have slowly seen my views and earnings go up.  It is a slow process, but it's getting better.  smile

    I am happy with the earnings and overall stats.
    Delays on Earnings Report happen, and it is not ideal by any means.  When they are current, it is easier to judge the workflow and make adjustments as necessary.

    This happens every now and then, it always catches up! This has been a thing well before the Maven acquisition. I’ve been on here for a decade and they ALWAYS catch the earnings up.

    Search engines are changing, the way people search is changing, the way marketers view content and how much they’re willing to spend on it changes, keyword values change. The HP team has done a fantastic job keeping us relevant but we have to keep up with changes too. My earnings have dropped and I can already think of a handful of things I could sit down and do to perk my traffic and CPMs back up. I just need to take the time to do it.

    I'm not exactly glad to see I'm not the only one whose earnings are down from this time last year, but I suppose it is comforting on some weird level to know I'm not the only one.

    On the upside, we should be receiving our pay within this half hour.

    Matt, Thank you for letting us know.

    Once had salmon pink loons. These days the memories are worth more than the cash income.

    It's January I'm dreading. There's a seasonal drop in advertising revenue then.

    My Amazon income has pretty much collapsed. It used to be a  welcome windfall at this time of year. I think Google has largely killed that now.

    Hub Ads aren't as drastic, just down on last year, which is frustrating as I've worked hard most of the year on new articles.

    Oh well. The only encouraging thing is that the internet world is never stable, so things can go up as well as down. Given the changes to the user agreement, I believe the plan is to buy up other publications, such as Sports Illustrated, and give our articles more exposure.

    It's getting harder though. There's much more internal and external competition for writers than there used to be. It's not as easy to find good topics without finding out that they've already been covered well.

    "It's not as easy to find good topics without finding out that they've already been covered well."

    You are right. I keep coming up with these "brilliant" topic ideas, only to find out they've already been covered ad nauseam.
