  • Yes the problem seems to be solved. Impressions are what used to be, eCPM is bearable, the fill rate is around what it used to be. I am verry happy today and hope there are no bumps down the road.

  • @Siril Dev - can you be a bit more specific on what you mean by "getting worse now?"  If by chance this is in reference to the fill rate/eCPM decline, we are continuing to work on that issue and all updates will be made in the sticky post.

    Impressions : 26,474
    Revenu : 3.28
    eCPM : 0.12
    Request : 109,669
    Fill Rate : 24.140 %

    Impressions : 62,979
    Revenu : 18.56
    eCPM : 0.29
    Request : 277,892
    Fill Rate : 22.663 %

    For the 2nd week of february :
    Impressions : 205,002
    Revenu : 11.75
    eCPM : 0.06
    Request : 396,677
    Fill Rate : 51.680 %

  • Zero data for me today.

    Horrible eCPM yesterday.

    Horrible fill rates and eCPM in the run up to it.

    Pubcenter is no longer on my team's roadmap.

  • I just wonder what exactly happens behind the scenes that break this system every month one way or the other. Is this can't be fixed for long time enough if not permanently?

  • the fill rates have improved a bit but the ecpm situation remains the same if not worse.
    Thursday, February 20, 2014 6:48 AM
  • Still nothing but I watch regulary my reports and as soon as there is movement I'll post for all of us. There is nothing left to do or say , we can only wate. MS know how we feel and they didn't stand forward and say that there is problem and the sistem was shut for fixing. .... waiting ...

  • I think there is a problem with reporting. eCPM is down and zero revenue for today. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
    Thursday, February 20, 2014 11:39 PM
  • We are working on the reporting now - please refer to the following post for updates:

    February fill rate/eCPM drop for Windows Phone ad units

    Friday, February 21, 2014 6:17 PM
  • Still not fixed. My data is 1/3 of what was original and what my other ad platform shows. Waiting for solution.

    eCPM is getting a little better day by day. However the revenue is still  ~%50 down than it used to be.

  • I am having gaps in my data/revenue for about 3-4 hours and after each gap a 1/4 of my actual request are displayed (acording to adDuplex). This i Microsoft - one of the biggest IT companies and this is taking tooooo long it is embracing.

  • And here we go ageing. Huge drop in today request. With this pattern 4 day fixing and 1 day working I don't see how are things better. Why there are no such complains with adMob ?
    Thursday, February 27, 2014 10:06 AM
  • The same thnig with me ... for 10 hours 3 request ?!?!?! Normaly my apps generate 10k / hour. I think that MS are getting payed for ads and we are not getting any, that's why it is good for them things to be that way.

    Siril Dev

    Thursday, February 27, 2014 10:09 AM
  • Its the same with our apps too. Again huge drop in Ad requests/impressions.

    Why is Pubcenter so frequently going down?

    Thursday, February 27, 2014 12:13 PM
  • eCPM still down to $0.2  but will a fill rate nowonly 5% my revenues on PuBCentre continue to tumble to negligble retune of less than $0.20 a day now, despite 3000+ downloads a day.

    Microsoft is NOT interested in promoting this adverstising platform, as they have enough free Apps. So there is no motivaiton to support the Indie developer base anymore.

    I have tried to unpublish, and kill off all my Windows Phone Apps, but Microsoft just keep sucking me dry.

  • I understand you.

    I see some ad from pubcenter was smatoo, strange that Pubcenter use sometimes Smatoo.

    Thursday, February 27, 2014 3:43 PM
  • I can confirm that Ad impressions decreased a lot for last 2 days.

  • Anyone interested in PubCenter can join Facebook group http://on.fb.me/MzQKj8 to discuss more details on PubCenter, Windows Phone business model, etc.
    Friday, February 28, 2014 1:28 AM
  • That's not a good idea to be discuss in FB.There the group is closed and the main reason why we write here is to be heard. MS will never start searching in FB to see what is our current situation. I stick with the plan to bombard the forum and open tickets, other solutions I don't see.

    Friday, February 28, 2014 5:40 AM
  • Siril, I agree with you in some points. But in this forum it's not easy for developers to communicate with each other. If there is "PM" feature (leave message to others in forum) in this forum, I will also stick here.

    I just want to know the pubcenter status of other developers, not only issues, but some other experiences on app business model, app promotion...etc. Don't you? or any other suggestion exception FB group?

    Friday, February 28, 2014 6:36 AM
  • I am not against that idea, even I am in the group. There we can figure out public statement of the developer community and say our demands and what we are willing to compromise. Since this thread is open there haven't been one positive comment.

    Friday, February 28, 2014 7:44 AM
  • The final information is

    "We have encountered another delay in reporting which we expect to be resolved today. This new issue has slightly hindered our progress into the investigation of the low eCPM but we are continuing to work toward a resolution."

    So more wating and I suspect lost data/revenue for us. Thanks again MS.

    Friday, February 28, 2014 5:48 PM
  • I feel the same ... 2 days 0.01 revenue ?!?!?
    Friday, February 28, 2014 5:49 PM
  • I think we are getting pretty close to the end now.

    Microsoft will soon admit that it is incompetent at getting its Advertising services to work for its dwindling Windows Phone developer base.  Nokia have shown that the Windows Phone platform is now dead.  Microsoft will following soon.

    Not long now guys.

  • Yes but with WP8.1 and the whole "buy NOKIA" thing Microsoft has invested too much to let that one go. Windows phone is still the fastest growing OS and I personaly am inlove with the whole interface, they might just get rid of us but shte OS will continue , no doubt.

  • I still have for February eCPM equals '0.06' for my 363k impressions. Will it be fixed?

    In January I had eCPM '0.14' for 151k impressions. Is it normal?



    Saturday, March 1, 2014 8:19 PM
  • January and February are lost. The data from that months won't be restored in my opinion. But still the good news is that from now on it should be working fine.

  • Today eCPM is falling down again. Whole pubcenter seems to be a joke :(

    I am not sure about the real situation but it seems that the report data is corrected one or two days delay (at least in my case). I contacted the support and got similar answer. PubCenter seems going back to what it used to be, temporarily I am happy with that :)

  • Hello,

    I think the impressions number is not good for some days, but the revenue seems ok.

    349 impressions for 2/20/2014, eCPM 0.05, revenue 1.6, strange values.

    For the eCPM it's still very low, only 2/17/2014 the eCPM was 0.29.


    Don't say PubCenter is better for USA, it's my 71th countries in my eCPM list.
    My best revenue country is Romania, FillRate 90% and eCPM 0.57.

    For february :
    1st : The best eCPM was Turkey with 2.1 with > 5'000 impressions
    2nd : Romania eCPM 0.57 with > 20'000 impressions
    24th: Thailand eCPM 0.11 with > 10'000 impressions
    28th: Mexico eCPM 0.1 with > 100'000 impressions
    60th: Italy eCPM 0.06 with > 100'000 impressions
    .
    .
    71th: USA eCPM 0.05 with > 100'000 impressions

  • That is very useful information. For me the eCPM is the same, even lower but my impressions are as they were before with fill rate of 70% . Now the people from pubcenter are working on different accounts individually and after you get payment adjustment impressions should be fine, at least that happen with me. In no way things are fixed perfectly but it is nice to see some revenue.

  • I had a few really good days making $4k for 2 days in a row. It showed that I made $12k last month (Sept.) When I checked my payment history afterwards it showed my balance as $12k+.. Now, my balance is showing only $5k but I have not been paid out, there are no payments posted, and it still shows that my earnings for last 30 days were over $12k on the graph. Why is this not reflected on my balance? I want to make sure I get paid!!!
