For the last 7 days, HP Ad Program shows 126 page views for my hubs, but Google AdSense shows only 44. Why is there such a large difference?
The views are calculated differently for AdSense and HP. HP will record a view after a shorter amount of time than Google. (Meaning that for Google to record a view, the viewer must stay on the page for a longer period of time than it takes for HP to record the view.) I don't know the specific amount of time for each to record a view, but I hope this helps.
Thanks for your answer to my question. You have cleared up my confusion on this issue. Take care and good luck to you.
You're welcome! I wish I had better news to share, but unfortunately, this is how it works. The HP Ads Program has been much more profitable for me than Google AdSense. I am now thinking this trend is because of the view-length recorder.
Good luck and take care.

I've read about page views and page impressions and how there are usually more views than impressions (I think I'm saying this right!), but why would there be more impressions than views?
