Seems that I have the honour this month: Payment In Progress here in Greece for February earnings(unfortunately still without EFT so it will be a while until it gets into my bank account)

PIP EFT TN

Doesn't make me feel any more confident that things are not going south though with these revenue programs though. These late/later pays I think are a sign of the big boys trying to squeeze more out of their rocks. Our blood will be next.

Ron, you can claim PIPmeister status all you like, but my post will remain ahead of yours forever and forever, edit or no edit.

As I always say, Pip, Pip, Horray!

No Pip in UK.

I do wonder exactly how closely Google watch the exchange rates these days when deciding when to PIP.

On Tuesday when I would have expected to see PIP 1GBP was worth about $1.98USD, today 1GBP is worth about $2USD. OK not a great amount but it is a 1% change in Google's favour.

I may be wrong but I would expect someone like Google, who have European offices, to have bank accounts in the major currencies they deal in, ie GBP and Euro etc. If I am right and they pay UK publishers out of their GBP account then they have just earned an extra 1% in a matter of days and UK publishers would have lost the same 1%. That totals a lot of extra $$.

PIP, EFT, Northern Europe.

...And what a lucky day, just when the dollar has collapsed to the abyss. Had the PIP been handful of days earlier I would have actually earned something, now all I can do is watch as my earnings decrease day by day as the PIP closes in.

Demoralizing.

You work hard to increase your earnings 5%, and Pang!, dollar declines 5% before PIP and all is gone.

Considering you are draining money out of the US economy, largely spent by US companies to attract US consumers.... I'd stop whining about the exchange rate. :D

What? US companies still have money? ... that is worth something? %-D

But seriously, it's sad to read from financial newspapers that basically every nation/institution/bank/market/company in the world is either getting rid of dollars or planning to get rid of dollars. US will drown in their worthless money as thhhhrillions of dollars relentlessly pour back to US.

I would be surprised if we see PiP before Monday now. It's not often you see it appear over the weekend.

RonS

But aren't us non-US publishers enhancing the US economy by bringing in income for Google from NON US advertisers advertising on NON US sites? :)

LOL

cgi,

If you think there's a bunch of money to be had from non-us companies advertising to non-us consumers, feel free to open a native (non English) language .ph or .ru or .cn website and see how much money you attract for Google... and yourself. ;)

The basis for the comment wasn't about semantics. I'm just trying to define a company paying for the ad is non-US and a consumer targeted is non-US. I don't want to include arbitrage sites either, ones that make money by attracting US consumer clicks by paying for US consumer clicks.

I'm sure in total it's a substantial amount of money for folks like you and me, but it is my very strong assumption that the money flowing out dwarfs (by nearly 2 orders of magnitude) the money flowing in, so no -- in general, Google paying monies to foreign entities is not a good thing for the overall US economy. It is an import in the services sector -- nothing flows in but money flows out -- it's nearly a pure raping of the US economy -- at the moment.

When Google starts to dominate the advertising system in other economies and US publishers figure that out and concentrate on dominating the publisher side in that economy, we'll see if native publishers like the way it feels to see bad information, badly translated, mangled language sites taking "their" high-paying clicks. ;)

Still no PIP :( I'm starting to regret cancelling my overdraft last year now, and I've got no credit cards either :/ Will have to borrow some from a friend.

Someone needs to tell Google that the calendar month does not end on the 5th - it ends on the 30th or the 31st, and the 28th once a year!
