WidgetBucks to Streamline Reporting

An update coming next week is the removal of "pending" data (displayed in red) before it is audited and turned to black. Since implementing that in early October, we have been able to work with merchant click auditing systems to complete their processing in 24 hours or less. As a result, we have decided to eliminate the pending/estimated metrics from the system. Once this change is published starting next week, only audited metrics will be displayed, and will typically update before Noon Pacific Time the following day. For example, impressions, clicks and earnings for a given day will display no later than Noon PT the next day.

As some of you may recall, the pending/red figures were originally put in place to balance the 3-4 day auditing and reporting lag from our feed providers with the desire of publishers to get figures ASAP. While many liked the real-time reporting, it also caused confusion among publishers. With adjustments we've made, the pending figures are no longer needed.

I read on DigitalPoint that you will send payments next week... is that true? or was someone making fun of us?

RiCOCHET said...

well what first of all, we would like to know...

when do you audit the data? does this pending data can be changed anytime?

what are your standards really?

@ricochet: starting next week, audited data will be displayed b/c we have been able to speed up the reporting process and no longer need pending information. data for a given day is audited after midnight of that day and will be displayed on the site no later than noon pacific time. the standards, which i assume you mean Revenue per Click, varies by category one selects to display on a site. hope this helps.

I have got an account in Widgetbucks but it is worthless now because of your new foreign policy rules

Yes,becuase of this new foreign policy..Earnings are real bad..Before this policy i used to earn around 5-8$ for 2,000 impressions.

Now i hardly get a $ per day..It's very disappointing.
