Let me quote you some upset publishers:
My revenue is down more than 50%. There were people who were expecting to earn $200 in January and instead earned $80. I was expecting $1000-$2000 and earned a little over $80.
Received my report. 1/5th of my Content Host earning. Shame.
63. Wow. Just as we're writing about it, the amount posted. And it ain't pretty. I had $67 in Content Host earnings (63,600 views/1000 clicks) and only $17 in YouTube earnings... sheesh, that sure wasn't worth the wait!
Some feel ripped off by Google while others feel that there may be a glitch in the system. But one publisher recommends "patience," explaining:
Settle down guys. The Partner program is definitely not a "get rich quick' program. Part of the low revenue is the economy and the other part might be the simple fact that an advertiser does not want to pay a lot to run ads on your videos.
I have seen my YT amount drop to 1/20th or so what I would expect but content host amount is going up and that is fine with me.
