Why is Adsense reporting extremely low #'s of views compared to Hubpages stats?
This link here is a 2-year-old question that was supposedly resolved: http://hubpages.com/community/forum/123 … -hub-stats
I'm having this problem. My Adsense shows 19 views in the last 7 days, yet according to my HubPages stats, my hubs have been viewed a total of 1,957 times. I'm wondering if Adsense is only reporting on my HubPages profile page. I have a handful of sites on network sites and am wondering if my AdSense is even registering/connecting to those.
As a side note, Yes, I have entered each site (verified) that I have articles on.
There are a few reasons why ads stats are lower than traffic views. If you want to have a correct idea of traffic you should be looking at your traffic counts, not your ads stats.
If you have selected the HubPages Earnings program, which is the recommended method, then very few ads will be with AdSense. The HubPages Earnings program uses other ad sources too. In addition, keep in mind that 40% of the time the ads will be for HubPages and those will not show up on your report, due to the 60/40 impression sharing for the earnings split.
Another thing is that some people use ad blocking, so those won't count for ads either. However, traffic counts will be correct for those readers.
Use Google Analytics (http://hubpages.com/faq/#analytics) for best results. Watch your Real-Time traffic for a while and see who's visiting your hubs and how long they stay there. You will also see hubs in the niche sites in Real-Time as they are visited. That will assure you that they are indeed being counted. Mine are.
One last thought, make sure you didn't inadvertently disable ads on some of your hubs. See the display options in the HubTool for each hub.

This has been something i have wondered about before and it has always puzzzle me. However, yesterday there was an even bigger gap in my stats, my Hubpages stats showed just over 5000 views. However, my Adsense views show just under 1000. Why is there such a massive...

I've been tracking my HubPages stats as compared to my Google Adsense reports, and there's definitely a discrepancy. For instance if my 24 hour total is 20 page views, Adsense says I have only 3. I've tracked the numbers over a couple weeks, so I'm sure it's not just that different time 24 hour...

There is a huge disparity between my Hub stats and my stats in Google Analytics. Hub stats shows me getting 300+ page views per day. Google shows about 20 per day. This disparity started around one month ago. I've been on Hubpages 5 years and never seen anything like this except for the...

People are reading my hubs, but Hubpages stats are not showing it.I use a few different tools that show people are going to my hubs, reading it and such but Hubpages' stats are updating to reveal it. I am using bit.ly links, but I always have without any issue. Any ideas on what could be causing...

I know, this is the umpteenth thread on traffic - just wanted to check if others saw any odd patterns the past few days? My numbers climbed a bit, and were holding steady at a good number, and literally overnight have dropped by about a third (again). It's becoming time consuming and...

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.
