There has been quite a bit of talk about traffic dropping and quite a few people have said their viewing figures here on Hubpages are way below what Google is reporting. I've noticed the same thing. My Hub stats are down whereas my traffic reports on Google are telling me my views are actually up.
I did a little bit of digging and noticed some Hubs have missing views. For instance one of my best Hubs over the past few months currently has no page views in the past 24 hours. Very hard to believe as it's quite high in the SERPs. So I've had a look on Google Analytics and sure enough yesterday it reported 43 views. So I decided to go and view the Hub a few times, generating a few views. A couple of hours later it was still reporting 0 views in the past 24 hours.
So why are some of our page views not getting through. In reality it means were not losing out on earnings, but it is annoying when the stats are so wrong and you can't work out what's being viewed and what's not.
This is related to a known issue with search traffic stats that we're still working on. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Why do I show 0 page views at Google Adsense, but 200 and some impressions. This doesn't make sense to me. Google Adsense never shows the same page views or impressions that I show elsewhere. Can anyone help me...
