Today I received my Google Analytics report for September 2014. It shows I had 4,750 visits for the month of September. When comparing that to My Account, the number under the 30 day column is 3,839. Given that today is October 13th, I assume the 30 days includes October to date. Even if my assumption is incorrect, the number is still wrong. When you consider that the report is from Google alone, it's possible I have views from other search engines as well.
Many of us have noticed negative numbers in our Traffic Sources report (that has been reported to us as being fixed or in the process, however, as of today, I still see negative numbers) and fluctuations (and stalls) in our daily stats. Why is HP showing such a difference in page views versus what Google reports?
This affects our earnings. Can somebody please tell me why my (our) stats don't agree with the Google reports?
1) Google Analytic stats and HubPages stats will never match because they both count different data differently.
Linda, I didn't post earnings. I posted page views. I simply wanted to know why the numbers differ. I see people talk about page views going from one number to another quite often. How is that a violation to either HP or Analytics?
Again, I'm not talking earnings. Simply views.

As per subject title. This is insane. Sometimes I don't even know why I bother on HubPages anymore. Nothing I do seems to work for more than a week. Not the easiest time at a personal level either. Still, I have a goal...

I had a shock just now when I looked at the pageview. The lowest ever, nose dived to 25% of my normal stats. Since the Google change (or whatever you call it) a few months ago, my pageview has been reduce by...
