    There is a huge disparity between my Hub stats and my stats in Google Analytics.  Hub stats shows me getting 300+ page views per day. Google shows about 20 per day. This disparity started around one month ago.  I've been on Hubpages 5 years and never seen anything like this except for the algorithm change which occurred aprx. 1 year ago, but that leveled out after a while and the inconsistency between Hubstats and Google stats was not that pronounced.   Anyone else experiencing the same?

      We are looking into why Google AdSense Page views are lower than what's reported in Analytics and in Hub stats. I'll update this thread when I have more information on that! For now, when viewing the AdSense reports, I suggest looking at Ad requests rather than Page views. Ad requests are the more important numbers (they appear to be normal) because they are used to calculate earnings.  However, it is odd that page views are so low. Hopefully I'll have some more information on this soon!

      Just wanted to post a brief update with some info we received from Google.

      Currently, they believe there is a reporting bug and have had the same problem reported by other publishers. Google is looking into the issue and we will post any further updates as we have them
      Thanks for your continued patience.

      That is odd. I checked mine. All appears normal.

      Who does AdSense agree with, HP or GA? Just curious.

      I don't have quite the same problem as you, but I have a similar one. Google Adsense (not Google Analytics) has been showing a very low number of views for me for about a month - about one fifth of what I would expect. My HubPages stats and Google Analytics stats are normal and agree with each other. They show that the decrease in views in Google Adsense isn't accurate.

        AliciaC - sorry, I meant Adsense. That's where I am seeing the disparity. Only about 10% page views compared to Hub Stats.

      Yes, there is huge difference between the views in hubpages and google, google being at about 7% the amount of the hubpages views. I wonder if that will get fixed.

      I am facing the same issue. Adsense views are very very low.

      Just saw this thread and I am suffering same problem over at least two accounts. Have been in touch with Hub Team and have sent off screenshots etc.
      Hope they find the cause of the problem soon!

      Just looked for Ad requests. Yeas they are normal. Hope to leave it on Ad requests - looks far healthier lol
