Video on AOL homepage - stats show 0 third party views

#1
My video is on the homepage for AOL.com, but my stats on the rumble site show pretty much zero activity (a total of $0.25 earnings on the video - 0 of which is third party). I know earnings are delayed by 120-180 days - but is there no indication that it is even posted or sold to third party sites before then?

From what I know and experienced is that third party views come from three sources. MSN, are displayed as rumble views. Reporting data for Yahoo and AOL videos take up to 6 months.

If your video was accepted for full distribution you can try to find your video on third party sites by searching on the internet. I found your video on AOL: https://www.aol.com/video/view/prec...-learns-how-to-walk/5c07cc2a8215767c1324464e/ and on MSN: https://www.msn.com/de-de/news/news...y-with-dwarfism-learns-how-to-walk/vi-BBQtLyN

That's helpful! I think I would have expected even a notification that it was sold - even if actual stats and earnings come much later. Someone told me on IG they saw a video of my son on AOL otherwise I wouldnt have had a clue!

Normally Rumble will notify you by mail if your video is accepted for profit sharing, so maybe you have to check your mail if you received that message.

So I was notified originally when the Video was accepted (Rumble reached out to me specifically asked if they could get rights to this video - I didn't upload unsolicited). I just wasn't notified over a month later when the video landed on all of the 3rd party sites. To date it still shows basically 0 views for my video (Rumble views and 3rd party views), so I am just waiting until the 120-180 days are up to see what it shows then, assuming that it is just showing 0 since it hasn't been long enough.

I definitely understood that payment would be delayed that long - I just didn't realize that Rumble wouldn't even acknowledge that the video had been sold to third party sites/or viewed (since I assume a video making it to MSN, Yahoo and the front page of AOL would have gotten some views).

Normally you get one message like this:

Congratulations, you have been approved for profit sharing for your upload "name of the video". Our editorial staff just selected this content to be featured on our front page and promoted with our partners.

With the partners, they mean AOL, Yahoo, MSN etc.
