Number of adsense page impressions wonky?

    I've been watching my numbers in adsense lately (sad as they are), because it doesn't seem as though page impressions have been registering correctly. I checked yesterday's total this morning, and it is actually LOWER than it was when I went to bed last night. This is the first time I've seen this happen. Am I missing something?

      Well, my adsense reports can't get much lower, but I've heard that they drop sometimes when Google detects fraudulent use of the system (like spam-bot clicks and such).

      Personally, I have a problem with my adsense being consistently 0, but that's another thread.

        I used to have those days, mortaine, but I found that time solved a lot of it. I don't have a huge number of impressions, but the numbers have steadily increased over the last few months.

        Thanks for your response. BTW, your avatar made me thirsty.

      I have noticed that the adsense reports overview page has the tendency to open what has been saved in your system in the past (as if I am working offline). You need to refresh adsense reports overview page at least twice to confirm that the today’s reports you are getting are actually for today’s date.

    Have you considered talking to AdSense about this issue?  After all, it is their numbers you are concerned about...

      I did e-mail them this morning, actually, and am awaiting a response. In the mean time, I was merely curious if anyone else had noticed the same.

    HubPages does not have access to the Google stats generated by your account, so I don't see how anyone here could comment on your traffic.

      Yeah. I'm aware of that. I was wondering if anyone else had noticed the same with their own stats. My apologies for not stating that more clearly in my original post.

        I understood exactly what you were saying; I thought it was pretty clear, and I definitely didn't think you were taking about other people noticing problems in your account- that's just silly since you can only see what you have access to. That's common sense, and I didn't think you deserved the implication that you were naive or whatever.

        I haven't really noticed anything, but I don't really pay much attention to the stats. I've never noticed that it was lower though; mine usually goes up. So maybe it's just a glitch they can fix.

          Thanks for the straight response, Whitney. wink
