HubPages Ad Program Update?

    Good Morning!  I woke up to check the Ad Program report for the day and it shows $0 with 0 impressions.  Is the system is in the midst of populating the accounts?  Just curious what time of the day is the goal for having them updated.

    And BTW - KUDOs for an outstanding job with the program!  It is wonderful!

      Yesterday I also saw no action on this new program. Today I see INCOME. Wow is that not wonderful? YES!
      Looks like all we have to do is let the HubPages Team do their thing and it will happen. I can tell All of You that I was very pleased. The one day of income created by our Team Leaders efforts in presenting and implementing this new ad program for the writers on HubPages has got to be a success.
      Best thing about it, the INCOME recorded for my account was the first day of the new ad program... Makes my heart go PITTER PATTER to know that this is only the beginning.
      HubPages ROCKS, Thanks to our Team Leaders and all of their hard work.

    Same here, nada. So either something's behind stats-wise (could be that the admin team are home at weekends) or simply because we earned squat.

      Doubt is squat - mine shows that data is not available.

      Even if we earned squat, it would still show impressions, no? So I think the most likely scenario is that they're all still tucked in and sleeping soundly -- and deservedly so! smile

        Yup. No impressions at all but my good buddy analytics says different. I love your avatar you know. Never change it. It speaks to me smile



        I'm doing ... many things right now. More work than is good for one person but for sure I know it's going to be worth it. Thank you for asking smile

      Hi FD!  How are you doing!

    yes, i think they are either having a lie in or dropped the stats bucket and they have rolled all over the floor- just think of the hours required to pick them up.

    On a serious note I think this is why they limited take up in the first wave to ensure that the system was not totally over whelmed

    Well going on past experience the latest brainwave was introducing Kontera and we all know how we feel about that.

    If this is anything like the Kontera model, then someone help us..

    Just like back then everyone was kissing boots for the first two weeks and then they turned.

    How do you spell deja vu????

      I can't see a single similarity between this program and the Kontera one, and neither is joining mandatory.

      No similarity. But I went back to using Kontera. I figure I will get a check before social security is insolvent.

      Just kidding, social security will never be insolvent, just underfunded !

    Mine says 0 too. Maybe it takes longer on the weekend. I have that happen with Suite101, sometimes earnings don't show up for a day or two.

    Ditto.  I'm so excited about the hubpages ad program I even checked it PRIOR to my first cup of coffee! Today I'm at zero zero too. sad

    Mine is not updated for yesterday, the first day only, maybe later.

    This is exactly what I was referring to in the bit I wrote the new ad program on my Earnings Hub.  From my experience, there usually isn't an earnings update on Saturdays at all, and sometime late on Sunday, the lapsed last two days figures will appear.

    I've always presumed it's due to the human required to check the figures or who is in charge of the updating not being in the office.

    I brought up this very issue when HubPages marketing contacted me for a follow-up a few weeks back, and I said it would be one of the first complaints when they rolled out the program to a larger group.

      That is because we are not as sophisticated as the beta testers. We are riff raff and proud of it. smile

      I am just kidding with you, Relache. smile

      But thanks for the information about the lag in update.

    I also had zero earnings and zero stats on the HP ad program this morning. But I noticed, too, that there were only Google adsense ads on all my pages, whereas yesterday I had ads for Kroger and Groupon and other new-fangled things. Any connection?

    1. bgamall profile image84
      bgamallposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      No, I think there is a block ad shaped like a google sized ad but is different.

      1. Aya Katz profile image86
        Aya Katzposted 6 years ago in reply to this

        All the ads I see on my latest hub are marked "ads by Google" today. It was different yesterday.

          I saw some today that weren't google doubleclick.

            Oh! I had to sign out of my HP account in order to see them, but yes they are there. When I'm signed into HP, they don't show, but yesterday they did. I guess it's not relevant to the drop in income in the HP ad program.

    Some of our ad partners don't report earnings at all over the weekend; they wait until Monday. So you typically won't see any reporting over the weekend, until Monday p.m., typically.

    That doesn't mean you're not earning via the program, but rather that the reporting hasn't caught up.

        Thanks! I wondered when I saw this... guess I won't check on the weekends.

      What do you mean?On the weekends the Hubpage ad program does not update according to Relache.

    Thanks for the heads-up! I was precisely worrying about this. yikes

    The first day the ad program earned my .57 which I thought was nice.  Then no update yesterday. 

    This morning, the last 7 days earnings is showing 11.88! wow! However, yesterdays figures are showing all zeros and the detailed report below is not working.

    Overall, very excited, yet a bit confused on how all of this is working.  smile
