But how do i report a stat with no click ? i have Dec 31, 07 stat with no click but with 700 impression. usually my site gets around 500 to 1k impression per day based from your stat.

Sava said...

It's good. I see the clicks and everything else :D
Can't wait to see a payment confirmation from you guys.
How about the updates in My Bucks page ?

AvidBrowser said...

Hey Dean,
My stats are still stuck at Dec 31st. Please help me.

AvidBrowser said...

my account is killwithus@yahoo.com.

31st dec click reporting and 27th dec cpm reporting hv not been updated and cpm ad reporting for 2nd of jan also no reported, please look into this

AvidBrowser said...

Never mind, my stats are updated. I didnt scroll to this months in the scroll box.

Hervard said...

Thank you, WB :)
Now don't let this happen again ;)

Team WidgetBucks said...

As you look up your stats, please double check your date selection to ensure you are looking at the full slate of information (vs. just through 12/31, for example).

FilAdmin said...

my account's other widgets are not up-to-date, still missing some days from December and this month, please look into this, like 1 widget has missing days from 12-27 to 1-03...

MrAdVenture said...

I see the stats,but I do not believe for one minute what they say.
Yes,I have done everything right,I have the dates correct etc,but you claim I never received a sinbgle click the whole time you were behind.
I finds that mathematically ridiculous,and based on my previous CTR I just plain do not believe you recorded the clicks made on my site for the period from when you started having problems in Dec/07 until Jan 8th-when my first click this year was recorded.
How can we check and see what /if was missed?
I will not place my Widget account email here,you may contact me with the one that is with my blogger profile,or tell me an email address to send to you.
Thank you

Dj said...

Hey Dean,
Reporting Data Updated? WTF? I have 3000 impressions with NO CLICK! ..this is impossible!

vis said...

Nothing has happened.My clicks and impressions have not change.

Bernadet said...

my stats are updated but I find it hard to believe them. I used to receive loads of click a day but according to these stats in that entire time the stats were delayed I had received 3 clicks...hard to believe..

makesomemoney said...

I am still only recieving around $0.02 per click. Before it was more like $0.10

You stated in a previous post that "The result has been a strong jump in RPC numbers, up by 20 percent, and even higher in some categories."

I have tried most categories and this is not true.

Mohammad Arshad said...

IAM GETTING 200+ VISITORS AND 1000 PAGE VIEWS EVERYDAY ----- IAM VERY SURE ABOUT THAT - BUT UR SITE SHOWS THAT I HAVE HAD ONLY 225 IMPRESSIONS SINCE LAST WEEK !!!
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE --------- IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN 7000 IMPRESSIONS !
ANY EXPLANATIONS ?

xbox 360 help blog said...

At last, This is some good news!!! I hope it won't happen again in the future!

Kosta said...

Hey

My sites impressions and clicks dont add up whys this?!?!

manski said...

i have observed the same trend as most of you guys. Since December there were days that have high impressions but zero clicks.

Team widgetbucks should look into this and make the necessary adjustments.

ECS said...

PUBLISHERS READ THIS:

No matter who serves your ads, you will never see as many impressions of ads compared to page views in your logs. Two reasons being:

1 - Robots crawl the web daily and inflate your page views. Ads are not served to robots

2 - People have ad blocking software.

3 - Widgetbuck ads only server when the ad in is focus. If the ad is below the fold, then no impression.

And for those that have 500 to 1000 page views a day, unfortunately with those numbers you will never make a living. You need at least 100,000 a day to make a business out of a content site.

And for those complaining about stats being late, deal with it. I work with one ad serving company who gets great CPMs for sports related sites, BUT I do not get any stats until the 10th of the following month. Frustrating yes, but it is what it is.

Just my two cents from my experience.

"And for those that have 500 to 1000 page views a day, unfortunately with those numbers you will never make a living."

500 to 1000 because the loading of ads is to slow, my adsense stat is showing 10 to 14k impression. note i'm getting 300$ plus from 500 to 1k impression which good for an extra income.

eby said...

nothing appears for me. no impressions, no clicks nothing. And i have ads on my site since yesterday. What's wrong????? Help

iSportz said...

It is current but not updated. I am not showing any of my hits and none of the "ads" work when they are clicked on. Is this thing for real or am I just wasting my time?

iSportz said...

I see my stats "getting updated" but how come every single think I click on in the widget gives a page not found.

I am not trying to violate the TOS just making sure links are actually working - and they are not

kiran said...

Hi WB! The reporting delays definitely ate some of my clicks away. Impressions show (Google analytics differ though) but clicks are only 3. Something really wrong. People buy a lot after Christmas too and all our clicks are gone...wats wrong?

Catfish_Rivers said...

Google analytics indicates I too got more clicks than what I was credited for. And I still have several days in my stats that are not completely updated. I am a new publisher to WB and I must say that so far I am not that impressed. I don't feel any sense of trust.

mike.j.hayes said...

I feel sorry for WidgetBucks sometimes. Clearly some people who comment here do not know what they are talking about and show not be administrating their website if they wish to run their mouth about this.

krelay said...

Your stats only account for 10 per cent of my page views if we look at CPM. As for the widgets, there are only three people living in the USA and Canada!
As more than 60% of my viewers come from USA, I am wondering what they see! There should be a couple of thousand impressions of widgets at least, even with your poor reporting system - but three?
Your system just isn't working. Why don't you admit this!

I have no impressions, but I have a decent number of visitors daily. I'm not even worried about clicks, but my stats show there's no impressions - that its not even being viewed, even though I see them just fine on my site. What's up?

|| belle || ^_^ said...

Catfish_Rivers said...

I still have 5 days where the stats are incomplete, AND the impressions for a couple days are entirely off base. One of the days is actually OVER 4000 page impressions off?!?! What gives? I'm getting so very frustrated with Widget Bucks stat counting ineptitude.

Catfish_Rivers said...

^^^correction, I have 5 days of incomplete stats for this month, and 4 incomplete days last month.


There are impressions counted on these days, but no other stats.

Something doesn't seem right.

Goldmoney said...

I have around 100 impressions per day and my CPM status shows 428 impressions for whole December and 0$.

How those CPM ads work? No payment if I use that space for another advertiser - AdBrite I would receive at least 5$ for CPM a month.

How does it work or what is wrong?

Faizan said...

i got one prob i have good unique visitors to my website www.efuzone.com i have placed there ads of widgetbucks but in my acc still here is 0 click and 0 impressions plz tell me what i the prob is this... i have 600 to 800 unique visitors..

Catfish_Rivers said...

mirel: I hear ya there. I have had several days in the high thousands coming up as no clicks. All the other ad programs I use did very well on those days. So WB isn't counting clicks properly, or they are being dishonest, or else their program is just not as good as their competitors. Take yer pick.

BTW,I just had a very pleasant encounter with another ad company, who actually emailed me back personally in regards to a similar situation as what seems to be going on here at WB within the hour. YOU HEAR THAT WB, WITHIN THE HOUR! And, they corrected my situation the same day. WB better shape up or there's gonna be more and more people like me going around telling everyone what their experience with WB has been so far.

taylorwilsdon said...

I'm disappointed to report that this has fallen behind again.

I also believe a number of my clicks are missing.

Ake Blogger said...

I don't know why I have no impression though I've been running your ads for weeks

krelay said...

Correction to my earlier post....
There are now 4 internet users in the whole of the USA and Canada!

Who do you think you are kidding, WB?
If we can't even get impressions counted, what chance of any clicks?

Chinese News Reporter said...

Cool, we like widgetBucks a lot.

netfly said...

No impressions report, no clicks report, nothing... This is not serious guys!

I'm going to change for another advertising company more serious than WB.

Mattie said...

I'm at a total loss as to how to get the correct merchants displaying ads on my site.

http://www.paintballwarriorsite.com/

Paintball is one of the fastest growing sport/activities and yet, regardless of the combination I use to get the ads, I get cameras, tent, robotic toys, anything but what I need. There are thousands of ads on Google why are they not available through Widget Bucks?

rapidshare said...

hey stop this shit
my stats arent updated

they show 0 impressons and 0 clicks

my site get 1-2k impressinons a day

|oVeS said...

I tink alot of ppl r having tis issue. Mine CPM been 0 impression since NOV they inplemented the new widgets till now still 0 impression which is SO untrue. I haf a num of visitors frm US n i place my ADS on top left side yet earn nothing at all. B4 the new widget CPM was out i am still earning but nt anymore. Dean say will check my acct yet so many days no reply frm him anymore. For normal CPC ads got impression but no CLICKS? Tis doesnt make sense at all when CPC ads got impression abt 500+ but CPM ads no impression at all? So disappointed wif widgetbucks

myspace layouts said...

this crap is pathetic. widgetbucks, regardless of what they saw are pretty much scamming the publishers. They are getting paid for clicks that they are not forwarding on to us either because they have their heads up their arses and just can't figure out proper reporting or because it was their plan all along. I very much doubt they are refunding the advertisers whos clicks are not traceable so widgetbucks is getting rich off their supposedly reporting and tracking problems because they sure as hell are not paying for the clicks that are coming in.

I don't know if they planne4d this all along in hopes of making some cash and then being bought out by a bigger company and not having to deal with it or if they are just incompetent.

Regardless, if they don't do some serious fixing and backtracking and make sure all those publishers get paid for every click that were actually done...meaning every click the advertisers paid widgetbucks then they are seriously opening themselves up to a class action lawsuit.

It's flat out fraud and it's pretty damn annoying to see them brag about a billion impressions when they are clearly incapable of actually tracking impressions or clicks or, as mentioned, are tracking and watching clicks happen just fine but skimming the hell out of the publishers.

Anyone have any legal contacts that can look into a class action?

Mirel said...

Click here!

olivierleus44 said...

Since i joined widgetbucks my stats are not updated yet... so i guess either they are delayed or either they are scamming.. since no update form the admins i think the second one..

Deleting my widget now lol

samya said...

i have got over 100 impression of the ads....still no clicks :(

my adsense is working better got abt 15 clicks in the same time

still to break the big 0 of WB

help me!!

digitaltracker said...

WidgetBucks team - you should be ashamed of yourselves! Your stat reporting is riddled with inconsistencies and the blogging community will only take this for so long...

I've written several emails to your tech support and I've been STUNNED at the ambiguous and misleading responses.

Example: I show no clicks on 12/31/07 with over 1,800 impressions... Come on... seems a little convenient - in your favor.

You reassure us that everything is OK and that your stats are up-to-date, yet, things continue to be highly unstable.

Please step back a reevaluate how you're treating publishers. You can only pull it off for so long.

Stefan said...

I have the same problem, I just hope they fix it before people start quiting. I personally have put 3 counters on one of my blogs and the total impressions were 450 and here it showed me that I had 23???!!!???

Good luck to the widgetbucks team..to fix this as soon as possible.

sc said...

Is this for real? Is there a glitch in the WB system? I am new to widgetbucks and don't want to down the system, but I need to know because I take my promotions seriously. For some reason my stats don't seem to be updating correctly and I really need to know if there is in fact a problem???
