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 to Adsense. What is being caught by Adsense is Soapboxie and Healdove. There is also an article on Parenting that went to another site, and Adsense is not picking that up, either. Does anyone else seem to have this problem?
There is a difference between "impressions" and "page views" I used to think the same thing and also had switched to adsense earnings only for a period of time. (I think most people will attest to the fact that HP pays WAY better than adsense) I'm not sure if you're referring to impressions or views, as adsense has a different structure. I know that analytics may show for example, 4000 "views" and when you compare it to HP it might say 2700 but those are impressions, not views. This might not be what you're asking, not sure.
Ok. I took a couple of years off from writing on this site. I just checked ad impressions, and there are none from HP, but there are from Soapboxie. I am actually making slightly more from Adsense even though for some reason page views and impressions are not showing up from any HP. I am so confused.
Keep in mind as well that a page view doesn't generate ad impressions if the visitor has ad blocks turned on.
AdSense won't count pages that don't display ads.
I have a hard time believing that all of my page views not showing up are from people turning their ads off. If that were the case, wouldn't there be no income from the HP ads?
It depends on how many people are using ad blockers. Some estimates claim the total is above 25%.
Are you using Google Analytics? It would help.
AdSense says a site I own had 29% fewer page views in the last seven days than Analytics says.
Google says: "Your AdSense impressions might also be decreased by personal firewall software or ad blocking software which can cause Google ads to not display on your site, or may obscure portions of the ad."
I can't say how HP tracks page views for visitors with ad blockers.
It also depends on how HP programming tracks what it thinks as a page view versus what AdSense does.
We really need to have more details about the discrepancies to figure it out (if possible).
How much you earn depends on how much advertisers are willing to bid to have their ads placed on your hubs. If you write about money earning popular topics that bring in good views, Adsense can pay more. I switched to all Adsense early last year and income increased significantly. However, Adsense had a couple of time periods where it simply stopped paying for a week here or there due to glitches, so I switched back. Once Maven came on the scene, my income began to equal or exceed what I had been making on Adsense, so I've stayed with HP ever since. It's easy to make the switch if you are unhappy, but in my case, I didn't look at views, I just looked at money. Either way, the money turned out to be quite good for me. However, now I'm not sure if Adsense would do as well as HP on payments. It's a choice. Try it. If you don't like it, dump it.
adsense and hubpages count impressions differently in a lot of different ways.
Great, I found this conversation because I am really new here. Just need help know to get this working well for me. How do I get my page views and impression better counted?
I find that HP ad program is far better than adsense. I have only adsense on a site I own and still make more on the HP ad program consistently even with less views.
AdSense doesn't pay for certain views, so i read. For eg, social media traffic. There are also factors like bounce rates and so on. In other words, your ads have to be served, kept on screen for a while, and preferably from search engine traffic.

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?

So I was checking my adsense reports and when I go to view the site report for wehavekids.com I only see about 5% of the page views that are showing on my account totals in Hubpages. I thought that there was an adsense ad on every page or am I wrong in thinking this (or just missing something!)?

I can't beleive I never bothered to check this before - I've been on here a year - but I just realized that Google Adsense shows HALF the page view number that HubPages shows. Is there an explanation for that?

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...
