    Google analytics shows  me having 214 page views yesterday (May 16), but on my earnings page HP only shows 94.  Something seems wrong here.  Can anybody explain this variation to me?  Usually the numbers are fairly close, but this is a very wide gap today.

      This might be due to a lag in our stats reporting or something else with which I am not so familiar- I'm checking with Marina Lazarevic to see if she might know more about a potential cause of the discrepancy.

      Hey again! Just heard back from Marina. She pointed out that Google Analytics shows total Hub views and the HubPages Ad Earnings Report shows paid ad impressions.

      This FAQ entry explains why ad impressions are lower: http://hubpages.com/faq/#hpads-paid-impressions

        Thanks.  This is a bit confusing because normally when I compare the two figures they are fairly close.  Oh well.
