help with Adsense and SheToldMe please?

    Could somebody please help me?

    The situation:

    I know some people are earning from clicks on their Adsense ads on the SheToldMe site.

    I have had a bit of traffic to my hubs or articles on my own sites, from my SheToldMe bookmark links, so I know my Adsense ads there are "getting" impressions, even if no clicks.

    I've spoken to James of SheToldMe via email about the problem, and he checked my SheToldMe account and all is correct there ie my Adsense publisher id is correct and shows for my Adsense ads on SheToldMe etc.

    The problem:

    I have been using Adsense for a while (nearly two years) and do not only use it on my own sites and blogs, but also on HubPages, Xomba, SheToldMe etc.

    When I add my ads somewhere, I add a URL channel to my Adsense account to enable me to check from time to time where my impressions and clicks are coming from.

    If I have had no impresions for a particular page on any day, the result does not even show (it won't show "0 impressions" - it just does not appear at all, unless there were some imopressions for that page or site that day.)

    Whenever a page or site where my Adsense ads appear do receive impressions (and clicks if I'm lucky) it shows in my URL channel list eg next to hubpages.com it will show a number in the "impressions column" and a number in the "clicks column."  It NEVER shows the number "0" for impressions for any site or page other than for SheToldMe.

    SheToldMe.com in my URL channel list either doesn't appear some days (which is normal for any page I have adsense ads on if that page received no visits that day) OR, it shows "0" impressions.

    I've done nothing different with adding the shetoldme.com url to my list of url channels that I check, and also now today with a new site by the same creator of SheToldMe, and the same thing is happening!

    I use the "sites allowed" feature in my Adsense account, to help prevent other people using my publisher id in a bad way on whatever site they please, and I've been sure to include shetoldme.com as one of my allowed sites too, in this section.

    I also visited the Google Adsense help forum to ask my question and explain my problem, and although some tried to help, nothing works to get my SheToldMe impressions to show properly.

    Has anyone else had the same problem with their Adsense related to SheToldMe (or their new site Best Reviewer), and what did you do to solve it?

    Please help.

      I have had the 0 impressions on She Told Me since day one.
      I see clicks, but never impressions.
      I'm interested to see if you get a working solution for this as well.

        Hi sabreblade and thanks for that input - when you say you see clicks do you mean in your Adsense account in your list of URL channels, and that right next to the number of clicks, in the "impressions" column (the first column) it shows "0 impressions."?  So, you've earned a little through SheTold me via Adsense clicks?

        I don't mind if my impressions for SheToldMe keep showing as "0" within my Adsense account URL channel list, as long as clicks do show and I can earn from them.  (is that what you say is happening regards your Adsense and SheTold me?) I've got only 3 or 4 posts there so it's quite likely I've never yet had a click on my Adsense ads there, but what you've said is interesting (if you're earning from Adsense clicks on your SheToldMe posts even though your URL channel list shows "0" impressions next to shetoldme.com) then I could stop worrying about it, and add more posts to SheToldMe and hope that somebody comes along and clicks an ad sometime.

    Page Impressions always show 0.
    Clicks, CTR and Estimated Earnings show movement.
    And like I said, it's been that way since the getgo with me.

    Just so you know, a page view does not necessarily equate to a Google Adsense Page View.

      Thanks thisisoli, I'm going to try not worry about it anymore and start posting bookmarks and links there again (I haven't in a while even though I've been getting some traffic from SheToldMe, the part where I could earn from Adsense (and I wasn't seeing any impressions) was bugging me. 
      I'm not quite sure what you mean about those pageviews being different from Google Adsense pageviews/impressions.  If I had 18 visits last month to a web page of mine, by people following one link I've left on SheToldMe, I would have expected to also see at least some Adsense impressions being counted.

    I also see 0 page views for STM in my Adsense account. Maybe this is due to their revenue share model.

      Yes, perhaps, thanks Ultimate Hubber.

    Yipee!  I received one SheToldMe Adsense CLICK.  So even though the IMPRESSIONS next to the URL channel shetoldme.com in my Adsense account say "0" I'm not worried about it anymore.

    Also, I was concerned that I was having the same problem regards Adsense with their new site Best Reviewer, but I just jumped the gun obviously (only joined Best Reviewer yesterday).  Impressions are now showing for best-reviewer.com in my Adsense account.
