WidgetBucks Real-Time Reporting Starts Wednesday

Summary: Starting Wednesday, Oct. 10, WidgetBucks begins reporting real-time revenue-per-click (RPC) and revenue, along with existing impression and click-through data. This improves original reporting which left daily RPC and revenue fields blank until vendor auditing requirements were completed (48-72 hours).

========================

We've been listening to your feedback during our first week, and appreciate input on how to make WidgetBucks even easier. Reporting issues have consistently been your biggest point. Over the weekend we determined the solution and resources necessary to improve the service.

Starting Wednesday (10/10) you will begin seeing real-time reporting of RPC and revenue. Within the daily breakdown view (click the "+" sign left of the widget name), this RPC and revenue data will be visible along with the impression and click numbers. Essentially, in advance of receiving the final audited figures, we are applying our current rate card to the click counts, and will display "pending" (unaudited numbers) in red. Once audited, they will then turn to black.

For new accounts that have not yet processed their first audited revenue figures, the roll-up view of revenue and RPC will also be in red. For existing accounts (with one or more audited revenue days), the roll-up view is not red. (See examples below).

We ask that you continue to give us your feedback. We love the enthusiasm you've provided in emails and on our blog, as well as on forums and other blogs. At the risk of sounding too schlocky, we are committed to continuing to improve to meet your needs.

- Dean

WidgetBucks promises to be a good one. I signed up just today.I have reviewed WidgetBucks on my blog. I hope it will be a great monetization tool for me.One thing that I like most about WidgetBucks is your referral system.It only pays an affiliate for a year from day the referral signs up.To me,this is very fair :)

Im confused about when we get paid...one part of the site says "within 45 days of the previous month" another part of the site says "checks are mailed the first of the month for the previous months revenue" ...which one is it?

It would be nice to have $ totals add up at the bottom of the stats. Maybe for the next update? Thanks.

Team WidgetBucks said...

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Regarding the payment timing, sorry for the confusion. We send out checks for all revenue earned within 45 days after the end of each month, as long as you've earned a minimum of $50. And the total earnings figure is definitely something we're working on for the next update, which isn't far away.

Is there any proofs saying that WidgetBucks would really pay its publishers, I do not want scam anymore, if you can scan check paid by Widgetbucks, it is more persuasive

I think its just the mater of time Widgetbucks will be among the top PPC programs like Google Adsense.

Wow! The image that shows a Game Console website getting more than a thousand clicks a day is awesome. Is that real? If it's real then publishers will really benefit on publishing Widgetbucks PPC.

I've only noticed that it only shows how many referrals you have. It doesn't show how much you'd be earning on your referrals.

I hope that in the next update of Widgetbucks, they'll include this on their real time revenue report.
