hubpages and adsense don't match.

    I got 42 impressions in last 24 hours.  So if only 16 came today and hubpages takes their 50% then that should be 8 impressions but adsense only shows 3.  Any ideas.

      Are you confusing impressions and clicks?  First you say you got 42 impressions, and then you say you got 3, so I'm confused.

      It really doesnt matter either.  You are going to need a hell of a lot more then 42 impressions to ever see any real money.

      If I remember right I had one site, at its peak around Christmas it was getting about 25 000 a day and that was resulting in about 1500 dollars a month.

      Of course there are a lot more factors.  What I an trying to get at is when you are only at a few page impressions just worry about driving traffic and not how many clicks you are getting because Im sorry to say you will be very dissapointed.

    You won't ever know how many of your Hub visitors might be running ad-blocking software.  That's something you can't factor in.

    And btw, ad impression time is split 60/40 (you/hubpages).  And I'm with Maddie on the statement that you are contradicting yourself in stating two different figures for impressions.

    Got 42 page views in last 24 hours according to hubpages.  Then I check adsense and I got only 3 page impressions.  So I figure that maybe only about 16 of the page views came in last 24 hours.  Then if hubpages takes 50% then I should get at least 8 page impressions in adsense.

      I think I see the problem. The data in adsense is ALMOST real time. The data in hubpages uses analytics which is late. So you're not really looking at the same data.

      There's a time difference in the two monitoring systems. The data naturally won't match.

    Your also missing the difference in time measurements

    Hubs is a rolling 24 hours -

    Adsense is a  24 hour calender day

      This is important.  HubPages statistics are for the last 24 hours, going back from right now.  AdSense uses calendar days for their stats.

      And again, as Relache said, we get 40% of impressions, not 50%.  I'm wondering if you read any of the responses you were given.

    That is why I lowballed my adsense as should of at least got 16 page impressions then minus hubpages 50% should of got at least 8?

    Maybe hubpages is slow to update???

    And even with rolling stats, if you take note of the stats at 9am one day, 24 hours later should give a true figure, rolling or otherwise.
    Google stats will give you YOUR share of your actual viewing figures tht day (60%) minus your own which they don't show.

    Yes I read but no one is reading what I said.  I said I got 46 page impressions in last 24 hours from hubpages.  So surly I got at least 16 today (this is a lowball number).  Then I should show adsense of 40 percent of 16 is about 7.  I only show 3 adsense page impressions.

      Seems a bit low even accounting for your own views.

      No, it is not surely. You easily could have gotten all of your 46 page impressions yesterday night - and none today smile

    Tile, I had the same issue.

    Example: 100 impression/page views on HP only showing 42 impressions on AdSense. The numbers should be 60 -only HP. So the 22 impressions difference is the problem...

    I can only assume it might have been a blend of direct and referral impressions through HP, since referral (i think) is 30% and direct is 60%.
    I am wondering if they might be multiple views, which Google doesn't count.

    in the last 30 days, HP says I have had 2,000 views.
    google isn't even reaching 45% of that number.

    If it helps any, my own google views have me at well less than half of my Hubpages views.
    We cannot assume 40% is a fixed figure. Well yeah it is a fixed figure but it could be that 100 people looked at your hubs during Hubpages time, and only 20 during yours.
    Its luck of the draw.

    So are you saying hubpages is not a I take 5 views and you take 5 views thing and is more I get all for 50% of the time and you get all views 50% of the time.  I can deal with that as it may just not be a lucky day.

    Also so at midnight or say 11:30 at night all should match as this is adsenses 24 hours and hubpages last 24 hours.

      That's it in a nutshell. It is a share of TIME, not views.

    Both have undisclosed delays in reporting. You are much better off comparing monthly results smile

    I don't compare HubPages stats to AdSense stats since the two are compiled very differently.

    I do compare each to themselves over time. 

    And if you've ever read the FAQ, (I don't know why I even said that as it's obvious you haven't) HubPages makes it very clear that you earn 100% of what happens during the 60% impression share time you get.

    There's something you're forgetting.

    Analytics CANNOT track every user that comes. Believe it or not a lot of people do browse with javascript blockers, no javascript = no tracking. So if someone has "" allowed, their traffic would get counted by hubpages' tracker, but if that same person doesn't have "" allow, it doesn't get tracked by google analytics.

    I know this is true for some people because I'm one of them. I have hubpages allowed, therefore I can get tracked by them, but I've never bothered to allow analytics (since it doesn't affect how a page shows, I've never actually bothered hmm I'm not doing that on principle or anything, just on laziness).

    And you can't forget that hubpages tracks pretty much all views, including repeats (and thus refreshes) as well as your own - all of those would ideally not be tracked by google analytics. Lastly, HP and GA may track bot views differently. I don't know for sure, but that's always a possibility.

    Edit: Just realized this was about adsense, but the same possibilities apply for that as well.

    Hi Tilecleaninghub,

    I'm with Misha - the impressions aren't spaced out that neatly.

    Also, my understanding is that you had the idea right - HubPages gets 40% of impressions, not 40% of the minutes in the day.  If your hub gets no views for eight straight hours, and then it gets a hundred views in one minute, approximately 60 views go to you and 40 views go to HubPages.  You're not at the mercy of when those views happen. (Or am I really misunderstanding this, Izzy/Relache?  And if so, where's the literature on this?  Does HubPages actually do it by time instead of impressions?)

    You might be interested in the post I made below, which tells you how to test that the 60/40 split is correct.  You have to do it on a day that the stats aren't "stuck" on Hubpages or AdSense.

    just relax, don't be alarmed, hubpages and adsense have differences in reporting mainly because of time differences (at which time did hubpages extracted the report and so different with adsense.) you can set it with the same time, pacific, eastern, etc. set it.
    one more reason is that 60% impressions is yours, 40% to hubpages
