AdSense is still not showing the correct number of views. This has been going on for months. What's up with that? Minor rant concluded. Back to my nap.
The same thing is going on here. I wonder what it is all about.
How do you know they are not showing the correct number of views?
Last month Adsense stats showed I had particularly high earnings(for me) over two days. These appeared in the you have 'earned today so far' column but then following day there was a big fat zero!
I did not understand it then and still don't. I took screenshots throughout that period and still have them but I still can't figure out what was happening.
I am reasonably certain that earnings are being reported correctly, leastwise as to clicks. Impression earnings I'm not so sure and just plain don't know.
Views, however, are a crock.
Right now, AdSense claims I have 7 views so far today. Both HubPages and Google Analytics vehemently dispute that.
This was reported in another thread recently. I contacted our AdSense rep about it then (9-10 days ago) and she told me that it is likely a reporting bug. I sent her some data that illustrates the problem and am waiting for updates. I'll keep you posted. For now, I recommend using the Ad Requests or Matched Requests columns instead of Pageviews - those should be accurate.
Oops. I missed the 10-days-ago one. Sorry about that.
I totally didn't know about the Ad Requests, etc. Much better. Thanks!
Same issue for me also, from last few months.... now my clicks are greater than page views
Thanks Marina Lazarevic for your update
I think there is something up with this. I have according to HPages over 2,500 reads of my hubs. Adsense shows 15 page visits over one month.
Ad Requests shows 215 ads and the same amount for the day, the week the month, so how do I know which it is?
It's obvious, Adsense have done something technical, the effect of which is to wipe out our revenue. In the two and a half years I've had HPs with over 50,000 visitors, Adsense has earned me £2.69.
Still its not resolved,
Friends... still you are facing the same issue?
I'm afraid there won't be a resolution unless other publishers report this issue to AdSense. I've reported every example of the bug (that I'm aware of) to them, but it's still not widespread enough to warrant attention from their tech team. So, the best course of action you can take now is to ignore the bug and use the Ad Requests / Matched Requests metrics in AdSense instead of Page views. I'm sorry about that, I know it's frustrating.
Edit: a word
Thanks Marina for follow-up and update
....... But due to this issue my adsense earning decreased by 85%
Marina, thanks for pointing this out. I was wondering why my HP page views did not appear in the AdSense stats, but using the "Ad Requests / Matched Requests" they now do. Apparently there is indeed an error with the AdSense page view metrics.

Hi everyone. I've been putting some work in writing quality articles the last few months, all my articles are approved as featured but earnings are still pretty low. I have earned a total of $1+ in two months, and with that speed it will take years to reach checkout. I have both Hubpages and...

Hi folks. I use the AdSense direct implementation, rather than the HP earnings program on HubPages. Over the last couple of days I have noticed that the number of clicks and my earnings have increased very dramatically (5 to 10 times).Having reviewed my account on AdSense and looking at the Google...

I just disabled Hubpages ad program last week to test out how much I would earn/lose if I just kept Adsense. My page views are not counting--the articles viewed showing on my account in Hubpages is more than what Adsense is picking up, by a large number. I checked and Hubpages is linked...

Adsense linked to my account, but no ads showing up?So I finally got my Adsense account approved and have successfully linked it to my account. I have an affiliate code and the status is now 'Active'. However, I went on my hubs and still see no ads. Am I missing a step somewhere?

First, please forgive me if this has been asked a hundred times already. I've tried searching through the forums, but without a better search feature, it's difficult to find out if someone has already asked about the same problem I'm having. The only thing that came close was "KNOWN ISSUE:...
