Why do I show 0 page views at Google Adsense, but 200 and some impressions. This doesn't make sense to me. Google Adsense never shows the same page views or impressions that I show elsewhere. Can anyone help me understand this?
You are not alone ! The same thing is happening to my adsense account, and I often wonder 'how can you have impressions showing up without page views' ?
I would love to know the answer?
I've asked this question twice on this platform and even HP staff don't seem to have the answer. Google has further nowadays complicated it by showing impressions and page views. And yes, sometimes you get a click with no impressions. As one contributor has said, seems like there's no point checking your Adsense stats if you don't have another website linked to the same. It's pretty depressing.
Do you apply your personal AdSense account to HP when you signed up? If you are going through HP for revenue share for G those impressions will show on HP's AdSense account, not yours. Which would adequately explain why you see views on your piece but not on your own AdSense account.
I show 0 pageviews for Hubpages at Google Adsense on a regular basis and still earn money there, however very little compared to my website. Yes I did apply my personal AdSense account when I signed up for Hubpages, but this started about a year ago and I've been here 5 years.
OK. That's really weird. You could try to contact G about it. Hope you can get an answer soon.
Shouldn't you be looking at google Analytics rather than Adsense for page view and impressions information?
Barbara, do you have the HP Earnings Program turned on?
If you do, then there is only ONE Adsense ad on each Hub, right at the end of the Hub - and many visitors won't scroll down far enough to see it. So it's normal for earnings to be much lower than on your websites where I'm guessing you have Adsense ads in more prominent places.
What I am really worried about is if I am earning as much as I should be at Adsense. When it says 0 views and I received many more it makes me wonder.
I stopped checking my AdSense numbers ages ago. Glaciers move faster than they do. I was getting depressed.
Page Views are one someone views your page and Impressions is when someone is talking about it. Suppose someone saw it a while ago and is talking about it now....thus, increasing your impressions.
Page views are when someone views a PAGE (i.e. a Hub). Impressions are when someone views an AD.
Sometimes, Adsense won't be able to find an appropriate ad to display on a Hub, for that particular person in that particular location - in that case, you'll get a page view but not an impression.
Marisa, But it is the page views that are showing 0 when the impressions are showing a large number. That is what doesn't make sense.
Then I'm mystified too! I earn so little on Adsense these days that I never bother looking.
I do well with my website, but earn pennies from Hubpages at Adsense. That is why I am wondering about it.
Like I said, if you have the HubPages Earnings Program activated then it's something of a miracle if you earn ANY pennies on Adsense here at all, since the only Adsense ad on a whole Hub is always right at the very bottom of the Hub. The fact that you ARE earning pennies is a compliment to your writing - it means a decent number of readers are reading all the way through!

Hopefully someone from Hubpages HQ can look into this.I believe that those of us that are using a hosted account with Adsense are not getting any ad revenue on impressions from the niche sites.I base this on the fact that my daily impressions on Hubpages vs Adsense differ by a factor of about 100....

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...

Just for a bit of background - I have been writing online for years, and literally have millions of words "out there". Only once did I have an AdSense account, and if I remember correctly, it was for a blog that is rarely used. It still appears, if I right-click on the blog, and view the...

I am experiencing an overall average off 66 percent less page views per day, for seven days versus a week previous and for the past two months. Such a huge drop in page views makes me think that Google has tuned up something again. I do know that I don't have the time and energy to keep...
