    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.
