    My Google Adsense is only showing about 1/10th the views I am actually getting. Something must be wrong. Could you please check this out for me? Thanks.

      The traffic figures from HubPages are still wrong.

        My traffic figures on Hubpages are about what they usually are, so I don't think that is it. Thanks.

      Use Google Analytics to measure views. Use Google Adsense to measure earnings with the Adsense program. If you are using the HP Earnings program, then you won't necessarily be served Adsense ads on each "view."

        That could be it, but only 1/10? That would be strange. Thanks.

      If you want anything "checked" in your AdSense account, you will need to talk to AdSense (aka Google).

      HubPages only has access and influence over the HubPages site and cannot report on your AdSense account, or any problems that might be on that end.

      And just so you know, AdSense stats are MUCH more accurate and precise than the in-house stats that are just basic page counters (which is why they mess up all the time).  HubPages records multiple views for a Hub each time you make a single edit to the Hub.

      Your AdSense stats are the correct/accurate ones.

        Relache, I just turned off Editor's Choice and suddenly it shows hardly any traffic. I had 36 of them and I wonder if when the change was made that something went wrong. My traffic couldn't have gone down by 90% all at once. I haven't been doing a lot of work editing hubs, so that couldn't be it either.

        It is now worse than that. It shows 55 views at Adsense and 1200 here. I think maybe Hubpages didn't associate my hubs right when they were changed.

          After doing a site search, google lists 171 hubs.  Did most of your traffic come from the EC hubs?  It definitely sounds like something isn't right to show only 55 views.  Is that AdSense page impressions or AdSense ad units viewed?

          I don't know what kind of difference it may make, but reverting your EC hubs back to your subdomain now places another redirect on those hubs.

          I wonder of this is something to do with adsense url channels?

          My advice would be to check that.

              No problem. smile

              Now that you've had a few days to see more stats, has the traffic gone down or only the numbers reported in adsense? (I thought you were saying it was an adsense reporting issue rather than a case of traffic having gone down).

              If traffic has reduced, that is to be expected with the url change involved in going from EC to non-EC. The hubs may pick up again over the next few months though.

              I know I'm in a minority, but I have found EC to be beneficial to my account. While the traffic is about the same as it was before EC, it's so much more stable than when the hubs were on my subdomain.

              What made you decide to take your hubs out of the EC program?

                I didn't realize it would take the EC off the hubs that already had it when I changed my setting. I thought I would only not have any others change. I have enough others though, that it shouldn't have made such a drastic difference.

          You changed the url for these hubs, so they will need to re-establish at their new url.

    Turning off Editor's Choice would have resulted in those Hubs being moved from HubPages back to your own subdomain.  It could very well have caused your traffic and/or impressions to change radically if you did that to several dozen Hubs once.

    EC Hubs are listed under hubpages.com, the top-level of this site.  All your EC Hubs just moved from there to barbara-kay.hubpages.com which carries a separate status in the eyes of Google.

      I guess I made a mistake.
