WidgetBucks Nip/Tuck - Update 1

Thanks to everyone for the feedback on WidgetBucks.

Here are a few updates our tech team is working on and deploying:

  • Later today an update will make the sign-up page secure with SSL.
  • An update to the My Settings page makes the Social Security or Tax ID number optional. We were hearing from bloggers and publishers outside the U.S. that this was causing issues for them.
  • We've also been hearing scattered posts about slow load times. Greg, our CTO, looked at the pages mentioned, and some comparables, and he doesn’t think the page load should be affected. The widgets would only effect load time the same way an image would, in that the rest of the page HTML loads while the image (or in this case swf) is loading. Once the flash widget loads, it goes and retrieve a trivial amount of XML. We'll keep an eye on it, but at this point, nothing seems amiss on our servers.
For WidgetBucks' updates, check back at this blog or refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page.

I checked FAQ section but didnt see there reply to my question, so I'm asking it here:
In my account, "My Widgets" shows
Impressions 1,271
CLicks 8
Click-Rate 0.63%
BUT Revenue is ZERO - why is it so?
