Google: Switch Back To The Old Earnings Report System For Youtube (In Adsense)!

On April 1st, Google decided to change the way earnings from Youtube get calculated and separated Youtube earnings from Adsense earnings. They claim that they made it this way to make it simpler and easier for their Youtube Partners. They claim that we can now use Youtube Analytics to track our earnings.

You can read the whole article on the switch here:

As a result, no one can track their earnings anymore. It is impossible to see the stats in real time since YouTube Analytics runs 24 hours behind. Also, impossible to keep track of total earnings if you have multiple YouTube channels because you can only see reports for one channel at a time. Those who have been able to use Analytics to a certain extent, have reported that the data is always wrong. and is constantly adjusted with lower numbers. The switch was made on March 31st in the afternoon and no one received revenue for those last few hours of the day which means that it went into Google pocket. No one is able to keep track or view their combined earnings in Adsense. People are reporting that their earnings are being cut almost in half with no explanation.

Unfortunately, noone from google has responded to a single inquiry.

You can see how upset and confused people are and how they're requests for help and explanation have gone unanswered here:

I believe that this new system is insane and it feels like we took a few giant steps backwards. Instead of improvement this caused only confusion and irritation.
The changes that were made on April 1st need to be reversed immediately!

      So The Earnings For YouTube Have Been Posted Today, But It's About Half The Amount Of What It's Supposed To Be. Best Part Is That There's No Way To Double Check Why It's So Much Less Money Because The Data Is Messed Up And Adsense Doesn't Show Any Explanation!!!

      I have multiple YouTube channels and the old absence would be the central databank for all ofvthem. Now it's confusing and next to impossible to keep track of. I believe youtube is robbing us blind!
