I track my Hubs and articles on other sites through Google Analytics, of course. I didn't know what I was doing when I started, so I just began tracking them through URL channels. For a while now, I've been noticing Adsense money coming in that's not accounted for in my Anaytics. Meaning, I've obviously missed a URL channel, or two or three. I've thoroughly checked HP, so I know I haven't missed a channel here. So, it's obviously coming from another source.
Is there any way to figure out where the clicks are coming from at this point? I sure wish I'd been more diligent in the beginning... *sigh*
Do you have any referalls on HP? Maybe one of your referalls is getting pretty successful and you're seeing some nice residual Adsense clicks from them?
I found that if I go into the "custom channels" report pages on Adsense, I can then see further menu options on the left. One of them is "sites". This lists any site on which you've had clicks.
This is on the bog standard Adsense account where you see your earnings, not on Analytics. I don't use Analytics at all because I have no clue how to do so.
These days adsense tracks sites automatically, just go to reports>sites.
Okay, I see what you're saying. The mysterious part is this and is purely an example. I'll see a total tally of one click for, say... $1.04, but the total amount in earnings would be something like $1.72. Obviously I'm getting some click(s) that aren't registering in my adsense. Does that make sense?
You are probably getting paid for some impressions. Banners and large rectangles pay a cent per 1000 or so.
You can check adsense referrers on analytics too. I don't think that the estimated value on analytics is accurate but it shows valid click anyway.
Is that the old interface? What I'm seeing looks totally different.
It's new interface. You can check the link top-right if you want to switch between old and new version.

I think that the Adsense TOS prevents me from being too specific about this (and I have my own selfish reasons for not being specific, too), but when I logged into Adsense right now, I saw a figure that was easily 4...

Please forgive my ignorance, folks, but I'm really not sure that I understand how Adsense works. I can see that clicks on Ads give you cash, but why is there also a running total for "impressions"?Firstly,...
