Publisher Network Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I see pageviews recorded in my account but no revenue?

Pageviews will accumulate in your publisher account every time a page of your website that includes Indeed job content loads. No revenue is generated until you refer users to Indeed who then generate affiliate earnings or sponsored clicks.
