    On the HubPages Adprogram Summary, what is an "impression" is it the same as a pageview?

    Sorry, but msorensson's answer is incorrect. You are right, Sherry. Impression refers to an advertisement''s appearance on a web page which is seen when someone "views" it. So it is in essence equivalent to a page view. The HP Ad Program pays you when someone views your page (and the ads on it), as opposed to Google Adsense which pays you when someone clicks an ad. Hope this helps.

    A "view" is when ANYONE views the page (yourself included.)

    An "impression" is when someone views a page WHILE ADVERTS ARE SHOWING. So if they view it in the hub hopper, or with an ad blocker on, it will NOT count as an impression.

    Simply impression is, how many visitors saw the advertisement of your pages.  Page views and impressions go almost same with each other.  Only difference is, your visits to your own pages may get excluded from total impression count, whereas in page views, your visits will also get counted.

    Here's something about impression and click.  I just copy-pasted them.  Hope they'll help you understand about your concern:

    Page Impression- according to hubpages
    "What are impressions?
    As it relates to online advertising revenue (and the Ad Program), an impression typically means an "ad impression", and occurs whenever an ad appears on a Hub and is presumably seen by a visitor.
    With regards to your Ad Program reports, you are paid based on "page impressions," which are Hub views. Each page impression can include up to 4 individual ad impressions, depending on: the ad level setting of the Hub, the length of the Hub, and whether a given location has "time" to show an ad in case the viewer navigates away from the Hub. The CPM for an individual is determined based on the value of individual impressions based on traffic characteristics".
