Can you confirm this relationship and how the data is affected by 60:40 sharing.
Recently my analytics visits data has flattened out but the ad impressions still shows the prominent weekly cycle (30% down on weekends). This only occurred recently and I was wondering why it occurred.
I presume Analytic Visits, Page view Stats reflect total visits to the page, whereas ad impressions would only be for the 60% of the impressions because of revenue sharing.
As I understand it, HP does not assign their code to only ads; it is on the visit as well. That's why HP stats are always higher than analytics.
If you use HPads, I would suspect that with HP assigning ads themselves that those adsense ad view numbers are going to be virtually worthless - you never know if there will be 1 or 5 adsense ads on a page. For all we know it is affected by time of day, location of visitor, and/or day of week.
I am assuming the 'Ad Program Earnings Impressions' refers to the number of pages your ads are presented on (not five times the number) - whether they are adsense ads is irrelevant. The number of impressions seems to roughly correspond with analytics views (or 60% of them) but recently analytics does not show weekly traffic pattern - just wondering why?
You're correct that Ad Program impressions refers to (roughly 60% of total) pageviews with ads. Because of this, Ad Program impressions may not reflect every change you see in general Hub traffic. If you compare the numbers over a longer period of time, the 60:40 divide will be closer than if you compare day vs. day.

I have noticed that as well, mine have never matched up either. There wasn't a big, drastic difference so I never really questioned it. I am curious to know why they don't match though.

Is this possible, or do I need some sort of plugin? My impressions seems to be about 65% to 70% of pageviews (of the 60% share of pages that display my ads), so I want to see which hubs could be improved to retain...

How exactly do you determine if a Hub is working, I've looked at Google Analytics, how do I analyze?
