    I keep an eye on my stats daily. I noticed a sharp decline in my earnings for yesterday, April 10th. I know it is wrong. Has anyone else been affected by this yesterday? Who do I need to speak with about this? Thanks.

      My earnings have also gone down by 50% but then I had also seen a sharp drop in traffic that day. I doubt if it is an error.

      Yep! Me too. I noticed a sharp decline in my earnings for yesterday. The ad impressions have never hit that low.

      Ad Program earnings for April 10 are still pending.

    Same here, totally sliced in half, both impressions and earnings. I just figured I had a bad day. Hmm.

    I also had about a 50 percent dip yesterday, which is weird because it wasn't the weekend when that is most likely to happen with me.

    I'm so glad to know it's not just me....LOL
    Okay, I'm not glad everyone experienced it.
    Mine is almost exactly a 50% drop in traffic and money as well.

    I'm hoping it was just a mistake in earnings and not the beginning of some sort of Panda wrath. Oh goodness yikes

      No my traffic on the 10th was the highest and they were from Google not some spammy bot or something. But, the CPM is high and impressions are low. So the earnings are 50% of what they should be as the impressions are 50%

      Well we do know that the * means "unaudited earnings, value may change" so maybe it's a system wide glitch.

    Yep. I noticed that this morning and e-mailed HubPages.

    Same here, my impressions have been around half of what Google Analytics is reporting for the past few days as well.

    My earnings for the 10th are waaaay down, half of what they are usually...I hope there is a mistake.

    I think the amount shown at the moment is probably incorrect, hence the "please note, earnings are still being updated" memo posted above them. I wouldn't worry about, I think we've all got the same issue at the moment. ;-)

    Thank you all. It seems that there may be mistakes for yesterday. Mine is down around 50% as well also. However, my stats on my account page never dropped. Something has to be wrong. I keep a close eye on it, few times a day. Appreciate all your feedback:)

      Yes, me too, I nearly choked when I saw my earnings for yesterday were down by nearly 50% and I hoped it was a mistake. Waiting to see what happens when they are no longer 'pending'.

      Edit: Like others my traffic was much the same as normal, so the maths did not make any sense.
