Clicks with No Page Views

    Hello,

    I am seeing on my Adsense earnings 0 page views yet there are clicks coming from the pages still.

    Two days ago there were about five clicks and then the next day those clicks were gone from the previous night's report. Today I am seeing clicks again with 0 page views.

    Is there something wrong with the new ad program or with the Adsense ads? I want to keep my Adsense in good standing and am highly concerned about this.

      Can you explain what number you are comparing and from what sources?
      Keep in mind that your AdSense code is displayed on your content during your share of impressions.

      The ad team posted information to another forum that I think is related to this.
      You can see that post here.

    Hello Matthew,

    Thank you for replying. My Google AdSense report for today under popcultureworld.hubpages.com shows:

    1 Pageview, 4 Clicks, 400% Clickthrough Rate.

    I think one of my other HubPages profiles had this problem the other night (instead of this profile) before the "Clicks" were removed from the report the next day.

      This shows that, during your share of impressions, the Hub was viewed once and the person clicked 4 ads and 4 ads for one view is a 400% clickthrough rate.

      That is a bit out of the ordinary, but within the realm of possible.

    Considering that it is odd, If this keeps happening, should I alert Google AdSense? Thank you.

      Sure. You can contact Google AdSense support if you would like and express your concern.

        Can any other Hubbers tell me if they are having a high click-through-rate on their AdSense reports in the past few days?

        I think... its not adsense issue

      Alert Google ASAP.

      This happened to me some time ago on one of my websites, and after 'tearing my hair out', running from post to post on the Google forum. I was REALLY scared! I learned i was being click-bombed and read on what to do from others who experienced the same.

      First thing i did was turn off my ads. Next, i was told to inform Google about my observations here -  https://support.google.com/adsense/bin/ … ks_contact

      I waited a few weeks before turning them back on, watched to see what happened for a few days, I did lose some Adsense income but it was better than losing my Adsense account.

      I hope this helps.

        Viryabo,

        Thank you for telling me about your experience. I might just have to end up doing this.

        I noticed this has only happened since the new ad changes. This started happening around the 15th or 16th, so I imagine it is related to that. I have four HubPages accounts, and it is happening on at least two of the accounts.

      Hi Health,

      You mean that your AdSense views dropped but your clicks remain the same as they were before?

      1. healthbooklet profile image93
        healthbookletposted 2 years ago in reply to this

        Yes... its decreased to single digits and traffic is normal when I checked in google analytics

    Hi Hubpages staff,

    Coul you please let me know if you have any update about this issue? I am facing this issue only for my hub and not for other sites having same adsense...everything is normal for other sites ie., view, clicks etc

    You may be experiencing an AdSense reporting issue with page views, which people mentioned in the forum some time ago. The problem was said to be fixed, but at least in my case it never was. In the last week there has been another change, causing the daily HubPages page views reported in AdSense to be very low - sometimes in the single digits. All other sources of information show that my views are normal, however.

    What you could do - if you haven't already done so -  is to go to the "Columns" tab under the date in AdSense. If you choose "Ad requests" from this tab, you may find that the numbers are normal, as I do. It's just the page views section of AdSense that isn't working for me. Everything else seems to be fine.

      Alicia C,

      That must be my problem.

      I found Ad Request information and it looks much more normal looking.

      Thank you!

        Is your issue resolved?

        1. Pop Culture World profile image85
          Pop Culture Worldposted 2 years ago in reply to this

          Yes, it has. Basically the views on the Performance Report in AdSense always look much smaller than they really are for HubPages. And the CTR is showing much higher as a result. Apparently this is just how it looks. But if you drill down further into the details of your performance report (using the side bar) you will see the views are much higher for HubPages. It's just the performance report front page that looks funny. So there should be no problem from AdSense as a result.

            healthbookletposted 2 years ago in reply to this

            Do you mean... issue with Adsense?

            Is it ok to have clicks with no page views or with some high CTR ie., 100+ as we have normal number of Ad request?

            How many pageviews and clicks you have now?

            Kindly let me know

              viryaboposted 2 years ago in reply to this

              No. It is not possible to have clicks with no page-views. A page is first viewed then the visitor MAY click on an ad. Or not.

                ;( sad Currently my pageviews are in single digits with some clicks but my ad requests are in normal figures

                I am sure user not clicking on ad directly

                1. viryabo profile image86
                  viryaboposted 2 years ago in reply to this

                  Clicking on ads directly is not always done by the user. Sometimes, it's done by an unknown hater, a friend, family, etc.... without the user's knowledge.

                  If your page-views are in the single digits, i don't think there is anything wrong with that as long as you don't have excessive clicks for them.

                  For instance, if you have 7 page-views and 20 clicks on one webpage,or hub, then it is not so good in the eyes of Adsense.

                  smile . . . If I'm wrong i hope someone comes in to correct me.

              Pop Culture Worldposted 2 years ago in reply to this

              Let's say for example you have 2 clicks and no page views from a HubPages site on your report. That apparently is no problem.

    I know this forum thread is inactive, however, I have tried creating a new thread and no one seemed to know what I was talking about.

    I am STILL experiencing this. Since January 15, 2015, no page views from hubpages show up in adsense. I am getting plenty of traffic and analytics and hubpages back this up, but nothing is showing up in adsense. I've emailed hubpages and they think it's an adsense issue. I've talked with adsense and they are sure it's a hubpages issue.

    Since other people are having an identical problem starting on the same day, I am led to believe it is a HP issue. Has ANYONE found a solution? I want my AdSense earnings back!

        Hm..... okay. Thanks for responding. Hubpages seems completely baffled and makes it sound like it is an isolated incident completely on my end. If I ever figure it out, I'll let you know. Thanks again.
