This may seem like a dumb question coming from someone who 's been here almost three years but if for example I have 500 visitors and 824 page views, which set of data is used to calculate HP Ads/ Adsense income???
Hey LuisEGonzalez! I'm pretty sure it's pageviews, but I'm checking just to be sure.
First off, clicks make a huge difference in your earnings. A single click is generally worth a ton of views.
Second, your "per view" earnings are paid per view, per ad. Say a user comes to your page and gets 2 of your adsense ads on a single page. You get credit for both of those views, even though only a single page was viewed.
The reason you might see "visitors" and "page views" differently is so you can track what they're doing. If you have 500 visitors and 500 page views then either you aren't doing a good job at enticing people to read more of your work, your work sucks (according to your viewers), or you are attracting the type of viewers that just come for what they need then leave. Having a high page view to visitor ratio means you are getting more earnings from each visitor..since more page views = more ad views.
Mattforte is right in that it's neither.
Earnings are neither based on visitors nor page views; they're based on filled ad unit impressions.
"Page" impressions are shown here: https://hubpages.com/my/earnings/reports
Generally speaking, that report shows Hub views on which an ad was shown.
LuisEGonzalez, your visitors and page views have nothing to do with how much you earn here on hubpages. it all has to do with the amount of impressions you have on how many times your adds are cicked on. however the more views you receive the more likely your ads will be pressed on helping you to make money.
So for HubPages page impressions for money means the visitor read down far enough to view at least one HP ad. For Adsense a viewer had to click on an adsense ad.
Neither of these are true. The ads have no idea if a user scrolls down or not - you get credit when the ads load, even if they are off screen.
Also incorrect about AdSense. You get paid for views OR clicks, depending on the ad. When the advertiser runs a campaign they choose to either pay for a certain number of views, or they pay per click. Your ads become a mixture of these.
Google AdSense on HP works by PPC, not views. http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/What … te-Program
Impressions are counted when a page loads, so you may get a view without an impression if the viewer clicked off your page before the ads fully load.
