I'm very new at this so I appologize in advance if this is addressed else where and I'm missing it. I really did look for it.
I have a few little hubs I've started which have had a few comments, so I know I have had several page impressions. Yet when I look at my google stats, I see that I have only 2 page impressions and no clicks. Now, I can't say that there would be any clicks, but I know for a fact that several people have viewed my hubs becasue my score is rising.
Did I do something wrong when I started the hubs? Is there a way I am supposed to directly link each hub with my google account? Or am I reading the stats wrong?
If you're looking at the Adsense stats, then you only get 60% of the impressions credited. There's always going to be a difference between them and the Hubpages total because of that. You're not credited with every impression on Adsense.
Sometimes there's a little lag, too, with Hubpages stats before page views show up. Not much of a lag, mind you, but a little one.
Like the above, your Google id is only used 60% of the time on your hub views and yes there is a little lag.
Don't worry I believe Hubpages and Google are working fine. You can be confident that the stats are accurate.

I know there is some percentage of views that goes to HubPages, but can it really be 90 percent? That's about how many of mine they get. I've never cared much until now when I have a hub that is actually getting a good...
