Oh, I wonder if EFT's will get a PIP today? People that I know that get a check, get their PIP sooner.

Well I took a quick look at mine and don't see the PIP yet and I'm East Coast, EFT, Philadelphia.

People that I know that get a check, get their PIP sooner.

Adsense has said more than a few times that they do not process the payments this way. Doesn't mean that I believe them totally but this is what they say and they don't say HOW the order of processing the payments go.

Ok, Rose, but I'm just saying what I see over and over again, no matter what Google says about processing.

Here are two examples on this very thread. The only two who have reported PIP so far have checks.

they don't say HOW the order of processing the payments go.

That's because it is a well guarded secret like the Google search team algorithm.

The AdSense Team - not wanting to be outdone by the Google Search Team - have created their own algorithm for determining who gets their PIP first and who gets paid first.

The algo consists of the following information:

Geo-location of publisher.
Date publisher started with AdSense.
Monthly earning.
Publishers traffic.
How many times the publisher contacted (bothered) AdSense.
First letter of the publishers first name or name of business.

All that data is placed into the algo machine around the 19th of the month and voila, PIP is updated to publishers accounts.

To WolfLover - first of all I have to say that I love that name! But going back to the point I just think that for some "sick" reason I just like putting myself through this agony every month!

I psoted that specific reply because I just want people to know that even though we may speculate on the "hows" it hasn't gotten to the point where we can say for sure 100% as to how adsense does things. As a matter of fact I personally think that Adsense is just trying to drive the most paranoid and neurotic amongst us (yeah including me) into insanity! Which at least for me has worked!

Of course they will. It is rather obvious if you think about it.
Cheques take time to deliver to ensure that everyone gets paid by the 5th.

The AdSense Team - not wanting to be outdone by the Google Search Team - have created their own algorithm for determining who gets their PIP first and who gets paid first.

I think personal browsing and search habits are also factored into when they will issue your payment.

Starting about the 15th of the month if you will start heavily searching terms such as:

"Personal bankruptcy attorney"
"How to avoid mortgage foreclosure"

etc., they tend to get your payment out faster.

And I discovered that if I search for:

"My wife left in my pickup and took my favorite dog with her and now I'm sleeping in the chicken coop until I get my monthly AdSense payment when will it come?"

...that really speeds things up. Now, I'm not married, but Google doesn't seem to have caught on to that yet.

Hope this helps.

Farmboy, that sounds like lyrics from a Country Music song :)

Hope this helps.

Yes it does. Any input to help figure out the AdSense PIP algo is quite helpful :)

Just for my curiosity. Does anyone think it's possible we will get PIP-EFT before Christmas or if it does not happen on a Tuesday, we have to wait until next Tuesday?

To the check receivers. Do you normally see PIP a whole week before the EFT recipients?

For mine it has always usually been the last Tuesday of the month excepting when that is almost the end of the month. From memory, September was processed on the Thursday before the last Tuesday for that reason.

Normally last Tuesday of the month translates into MIB by the following Saturday morning for me. It won't this time around because of the four day weekend coming up, so I expect MIB next Tuesday.

I'm showing PIP EFT also but now this presents a problem.

I raised a Christmas present for each of you and this means that tomorrow morning I'll have enough money and enough time to get your presents to Santa Claus in time for tomorrow night's delivery.

However, since I won't get the money until tomorrow, I won't have time to take your presents to the veterinarian for their shots.

I'm going to go ahead and send them with Santa without the shots, hope you all don't mind.

You might want to leave out some fresh raw meat for your present near the milk and cookies you're leaving for Santa. And some newspapers spread out on the floor might not be a bad idea.

PIP, Frozen upstate NY, EFT. MIB manana!

Having already purchased all Christmas presents, this comes as a nice surprise. I was expecting it next week.

Farmboy: Send the money for shots with the animals (are they pigs, cats or dogs? Raw meat?)

What happens when you play a country music disc backwards?

Your wife and your dog come back in your pickup truck. You get your old job back, too, so it's not a complete win.

Yep, PIP, EFT, Phila, USA! Kind of buried under a foot of snow here in Philly but will that deter me from my Christmas rounds? I think not!

And it did just occur to me that those who are getting their adsense by check - they won't get it until after Christmas right?

My bank is closed today, Christmas Eve, so I guess I won't have MIB until Monday the 28th.

PIP EFT here in the UK.

Anyone know what PIP really means? Have they issued instructions to their bank to pay us and we wait until the banking system processes the money into our accounts?
