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).

It has now been 6 months and everything still shows zero third party views, no payment, nothing. Any idea why that might be?

But just because the video got approved for Profit Sharing, it doesn't mean it will actually be on those websites...

i think u video didn't get some attention in traffic sites may be it's video address or description , some times we don't know which videos will go live viral

No - Rumble responded and said they have only paid out through September 2018, so they are several months behind. The video was on the homepage of AOL in December, so I know it got traffic.

I think we are 8 months from upload to get third party view payments now. And you're correct, it's caught up to September. You'll see the payments for third party around the end of week one each month, maybe week two.
If you're curious about where your video is getting views, a Google search of the title, then a search with tilte + AOL, and title + Yahoo will tell you. That's a fun way to see where it is but you'll never see view counts. MSN definitely shows earlier and it is included in Rumble views now, but I think those are delayed a month or so too.
I find Yahoo and AOL vary greatly in payouts. I've had a video as high as $400 for those, but usually I'm pleased if I get a few hundred dollars out of about 20 videos per month.
Watch the Rumble Viral YouTube channel too. It's a growing source of income and those views are up to date. Payment is usually updated every three to four weeks though.
Remember that nothing is really predictable on any platform. The views and the ECPM are always hard to guess.
Also, Rumble offers full promotion videos to most third party sites, but the sites themselves determine how much exposure they give your video, if any.
Either way, this is the platform that looks after content creators better than any I have heard of.
