AdThrive Media, In-Image, and Video ad earnings all pay out on a net-45 schedule, so you'll receive those earnings 45 days after the end of the month in which they are accrued. You can see a simple overview of earnings by month in the 'Earnings' tab of the new dashboard, by clicking "View All Ad Network Earnings +".

My Dashboard Tab
Think of this tab as an at-a-glance overview of your account, including:
- Your earnings and pageviews from yesterday, month-to-date, and last month.
- An overview widget showing your earnings and pageviews from the past 30 days as a handy chart or table. Toggle between views with the buttons at the top of the widget.
- Earnings and pageview data by device for the past 30 days.
- A quick summary of your top traffic sources from Google Analytics and the percentage of pageviews they contribute to your site.
- An overview of your video earnings for the last 30 days, if you're using the AdThrive video player, and quick video upload option.
The Earnings tab breaks down your ad performance data further, so you can view specific time frames and historic data for as long as your site has been with AdThrive. In a future phase, we plan to add a feature that allows you to customize the date range as well.
When you adjust these dates, it also adjusts the data in every widget on the page. For example, if you choose “Last 7 Days”, every widget on the page will display data from the past 7 days; if you change to the “Yesterday” view, the widgets update to show the previous day’s data.
Earnings/pageview overview gives you reporting options using graphs and tables:
Toggle between a graph overview, or a table of your ad earnings.
The graph feature is a great way to visualize your earnings data over a period of time to look for trends (perhaps you had a post that brought in some valuable traffic or tried out a new ad unit and want to see if it helps increase your overall earnings).
In the table view, you can see your pageviews and ad earnings for each day in the current and past month, and you’ll find monthly pageviews, earnings, and RPM for previous years and year-to-date.
This 'Overview' feature also include a handy 'Export Data' option so you can download those reports straight to your computer!
Breakdown of earnings, RPM & RPS
The ‘Earnings’ page also includes a breakdown of your earnings, RPM, and RPS for the date range you choose. RPM (earnings per 1000 pageviews) and RPS (earnings per 1000 sessions) are how we track the performance of your ads as a whole. You can read more about the two metrics and what each is used for right here in our Help Center.
If you’re running more than just AdThrive Media ads on your site, click on the ‘View all ad network earnings+’ link to see monthly totals for AdThrive Media, AdThrive In-Image, Custom Video Player, and any additional ad networks you’re running.
Breaking down your ad earnings by device
This widget breaks down your earnings by the type of device your readers are using to view your site, including the RPM for each device type. This gives you the best idea of where the majority of your earnings are coming from, allowing you to put your focus on optimizing your posts for the devices your readers are using to access them.
Note: Advertisers typically bid higher for desktop traffic, so it’s normal and expected for desktop traffic to have a higher RPM than mobile traffic.
Data reporting for individual ad units
The 'Earnings by Ad Unit' widget displays the aggregate types of ad units on your site and gives you a peek into their performance, broken down by device, and gives details on the viewability percentage and revenue from each ad unit. Note that multiple sidebar or content ads will show up as one ad unit type.
Reporting for video earnings:
The 'Video Earnings' widget shows you earnings from the 'Click to Play' videos you embed on posts or pages on your site.
The Traffic tab pulls information from your Google Analytics account and brings you several ways to view your traffic data to help you understand how it relates to your ad earnings. Just like with your Earnings tab, you can filter your traffic views by day, week, last 30 days, month-to-date, last month, and year.
View pageviews AND sessions
You can use this data to understand traffic and audience engagement —how many people are coming to your site, how many pages they are looking at, how long they are staying.
See which videos are getting the most plays
The 'Top Videos' widget shares the most-played videos for the time period you select at the top of the page. 'Play Rate' shows you the percentage of readers who clicked to watch the video, so you can see which video player content, location, etc. is most appealing to readers.
Under the Resources tab in your dashboard, you’ll find some helpful general information addressing frequently asked questions.
