    I am frustrated by the large differernce in HP Stats and Adsense numbers. I have not made efforts to exclude my own traffic, so i know that is not the reason. Anyone got a brain storm to share?

    HP stats is in-house script which gets down when they're making changes or playing with code, that is one reason it gets stuck sometimes. But Google analytics code remains on our pages and as long as pages are accessible we're getting results on GA stats.

    Hubpages analytics also counts your repeated pageviews and tests. My Hubs have almost 15 pageviews before I hit submit sometimes! Everytime you then comment or check the hub, it tracks that.

    Also for Adsense Analytics it only counts WHEN YOU IMPRESSIONS are there. So only 60% of the whole traffic shows in Adsense.

    1000 Total Pageviews shows on Hubpages
    600 Shows in Adsense
