Same thing here. It seems to be a major problem. Lot's of people complaining about it. My dashboard is showing me earnings from last month but when i go to payments page it says that they are pending. Never experienced that, Thanksgiving or no Thanksgiving. Also massive drop in traffic.

Payment is still pending. Also never experienced. Do you have it okay or still also this problem? I am a bit stressy about it.

It's a holiday period in the US but my payment is processed in Asia.

Perhaps there was a technical glitch + holiday that delayed the payments.

It's still pending.

Hey guys! I have a question for those of you who have been struggling with your adsense earnings this year, perhaps since around either late December 2017 or perhaps March 2018.

Have any of you considered that Adsense might be checking your pages for quality and trust signals? Like checking your keyword percentage isn't too high, or that you have adequate contact or company information on the page that makes you look like a legitimate business? That perhaps it might put different pages or sites in different trust brackets before deciding what kind of ads it serves to the page?

It's just a theory, but I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has seen a change in RPM after adjusting those factors.

Although we haven't discovered if we're ever getting paid again, on the bright side this week has been the biggest by far in the history of my website. In fact, Friday set a record on its own, and then tonight doubled it.

Looks like this month will definitely finish on a high. My CPC is 27p today and page RPM £3.86. So with 29 clicks so far today it shouldn't be too bad because I've still got a good five or six hours of good earnings in the US

Having a stellar day, already into double figures for today. 32p CPC and £4.19 p page RPM. I also noticed that page views have increased by over 1000 and my bounce rate has decreased by over 10%.

RPM has been really good lately for me. I haven't been paid yet either.

I saw a new spam ad strategy this morning during my ad review. The ad pointed it's link to Google organic search result for the website, instead of the website directly. To be clear
the website spammy-example.com takes out an ad. When the user click the ad it takes the users to google.com?search=spammy-example.com instead of spammy-example.com.

I'm not sure what the goal is, is it to avoid getting your url blocked or is it to drive traffic to the SERP in an attempt boost organic results. This specific ad was for a product that is against AdWords TOS. The ad's content was very much designed to obfuscate the true nature of the ad. It is possible that this strategy was used to avoid tripping AdWords filter for the product.

In adsense manual is written that they have to send it between 21st and 26th. What if they dont do that? I need it this month. No next month. Is there possibility that they move this payment to next month?
