Hey everyone. I'm very familiar with Adsense but not very familiar with how the integration works with Hubpages. I have activated it on several of my hubs and I have a question in regards to how it works.
When reviewing the view source on my hubs, it isn't showing my publisher ID. Is this right? Is it showing Hubpages publisher id and then they split up the earnings that way?
The only reason I ask is because one of my hubs got 30+ visitors yesterday, but in my adsense channel data it is showing 2 impressions. So something there isn't equaling out. Just wondering if the impressions are divided between the two publisher ID's or what.
I know channel data at adsense isn't always spot on, especially with differences in time zones and such, but 2 is a long way from 30 so I was wondering if anyone could clear this up for me.
Thanks in advance,
It rotates impression time. 60% of time its your ads only. 40% its Hubpages only.
100 Unique Visits =
60 your adsense id
40 Hubpages adsense id
Also if your traffic clicked on a tracker 10% of impressions of HUBPAGES ONLY time will be shown to the people.
So it might be this:
100 Unique Visits =
60 = your adsense id
30 = hubpages adsense id
10 = (Any Hubbers tracker) adsense id
Normally with the trackers the first time traffic hits your page its there id.
Hope that helps,
PS: Example: Yesterday I got 184 visits, 243 page views (Google Anayltics). In my adsense it says I got 144 Page Impressions (adsense.google.com) This is roughly normal. The split it roughly 60% (243 x 60% = 145.8)
Ok. Thanks for the answer. For some reason I never see my publisher id when I look at my hubs. Is that how it works since hubpages obviously knows that it's me looking at the hub since I'm logged in they won't show me my publisher ID in the view source?
I was just wondering why there was such a big different from the stats I'm seeing here, where I had 30 visits yesterday to the hub and the 2 that were showing my g account.
Thanks for the info,
indeed, can you clarify Marisa's point?
Also Adsense impressions can be lower than page views, since it filters out views which may not be valid. There are also several other issues that have been indicated as factors recently, including time spent on page to calculate whether a visitors was a view or not.
Personally I don't know a huge amount about how the google aadsense page impressions are calculated, I am happy with how it all works out so I don't need to go digging.
What I meant was. When I first started with hubpages I didn't include my adsense id. I kept the hubs non-monetized for some reason or another. About a week ago, I added my adsense ID to the affiliate settings. Just been weird that I'm not receiving nearly as many impressions as I am hits from Google according to hubpage statistics.
I've used Adsense for over a year on my own domains, and never had any similar issues. It looks like everytime I view source on my hubs I'm seeing the hubpages google ad code. Even though I have mine in the affiliate settings. I know it alternates, but I never see mine.
After you added your adsense ID at hubpages, did you get an email from google asking to link accounts?
I have read up on Adsense, and commented on it - but I confess that there's still a huge amount of mystery about it to me. Most people who comment know far more than I do.
Two things may be part of the picture; one of these is certain, the other is speculation.
When I was reading some pop-up Q/A when I signed up for Google Analytics, I read that currently because of the restrictions, no views from China are counted by Google. I don't know whether HubPages counts them or not, though. Since you know about Adsense, you are probably already aware of that and know far more about it than I do. It was new to me.
The other thing that I'm still not really sure about (the speculation part) is the way the 40%/60% split works - it's time, not actual page views or impressions, isn't it? The way that sounds to me is that if HP's slots of time had 90 visits, and my slots of time (even though they make up 60% of the total time available) see only 10 visits, then I get 10 and HP gets 90. Someone please help out here - I'm speculating, based on some things I've read, and I certainly don't want anyone to assume I know what I'm talking about!
Well, I hope that's not the way it works either!! And please understand that what I wrote is based on something that I read in a forum discussion, not in official HubPages or Google information.
I would be very happy for someone to respond back and say that I'm totally, totally off-base. But, even if what I wrote is true, it would be helpful to know that, just as a matter of information and perspective.
I just added my adsense to my hubpage account yesterday. I verified my information, received the email from google and clicked the link. It says that my accounts are linked but in affiliate settings, it still says that's it's not set up and won't allow my google ID to be added in the field.
Does anyone know if there is a step that I missed?
Thanks for your help, still new to this.
Kyriana, read this (following link) discussion and see if it helps. If not, then come back and someone should help you out.
