I looked into my Analytics and it said I had an XXX amount of unique visitors(for this day). I am not sure if I am allowed to say how many(tell me if I am wrong), but I am extremely surprised how big the number was.(for me anyway)
Why are my google adsense page impressions about 50% lower than my what my Analytics say?
A more knowledgeable hubber may very well correct me here, but I THINK that adsense reports only the 60% of views that belong to you, not to HP. Analytics reports them all.
I also suspect the accuracy of Analytics; it misses far too many clicks to think that it gets all the views. I find it probably misses 10% or more of the clicks Adsense reports.
You're right, Wilderness. Think of it this way -- AdSense tells you how many page impressions for your ads, while Analytics tells you how many page impressions for your hubs.
@David -- You can talk about any stats or numbers that you want EXCEPT AdSense statistics. You can talk about AdSense earnings, but not CTR and numbers like that.
That's a good way to put it, Irohner.
Say, have you looked at the new adsense recently? I swear I thought it reported ad views instead of page views and didn't use it because of that. I HAD figured out how to show page views, but it took a few clicks and I'm lazy.
I just looked at it and everything is in page views. Did I somehow do something to it that was permanent or have they changed it?
Well, my unique visitors were 2,163 for today so far, is that good? Well, I mean for right now?
Good - bad - all is relative. I have cracked 600 (total) daily views only once so far so to me 2100 would be fantastic. And if unique all the better!
Bigger question is are you earning off of them?
Well, today has been a good day so far, but the beginning of the month sort of screwed things up lol
I know it's all relative, but I mean in comparison to someone first starting out or something maybe..
I finally decided it's probably best to compare my work to my work. As long as views and income continue to grow I'm happy.
It's just too hard to compare to anyone else. We write about different things, with different CPC's and search numbers. Even CTR rates can vary by what we write about. If I can stay in or above the "norm" for HP as a whole I think that's fine.
And, of course, number of hubs plays a big part as does age. I'm just now getting a few of my early (read "bad") hubs to the six month mark that many indicate is a minimum to get real traffic.
It looks to me like you're doing fine.
Yeah true. There are SO many "variables" when it comes to income online.
Topics, CTR, page eCPM, PPC, CPC, and etc....Traffic.
I do believe though, you need in the range of 100,000-1,000,000 views a month to make 100s to upwards of 1000 monthly.
Maybe some would disagree, but I am not pointing out any specific range, so that number may be accurate in terms of making part-time to full-time income.
For example, one person may get 100,000 views a month. Made $300
Another makes 100,000, but has a bad CTR, and only made $200.
I always try to look it that way. Money is made, but its hard to say how much for that given person.
I don't agree. I have a little over 40 hubs on this account and they get roughly 30k views per month. Those 30k views earn me several hundred dollars each and every month. I've said this before and I'll say it again -- learn to work smart instead of working hard.
Do you incorporate misha's type of strategies, or do you not backlink?
The reason why I said that amount is because it seems many successful people using adsense make a few 100k a month and make 100s or close to 1000.
I am just looking at it from one perspective. I am not an expert or anything. 30k and 100s a month? High PPC lol?
Irohner is right, David. Work smart, not hard. I just wish I was smarter; when everyone said "write Christmas hubs" I ignored it. I don't like sales hubs, can't cook or decorate and don't have anything to say about Christmas.
I write mostly home improvement hubs; "how to" stuff, and this is NOT the season for that. My views and income from that kind of thing are still rising but very slowly now. The few sales hubs I've made are going gangbusters though and have way more than made up for lack of adsense earnings in income from Amazon. Had I been smarter I would have written more of them in October!
I don't backlink, but my work and time on SEO has paid off as well. It takes me longer to find keywords for sales hubs than it does to write them, but it's worth the effort in the long run.
I took one quick peek and quickly went back to the old AdSense. There was a thread last week about it though. From what I understand, they changed some of the measurements we're used to seeing on the front page. Maybe try to find that thread -- I know SkyFire posted in there and I think SunForged too. I don't know if AdSense has changed anything since then or not.
I just felt the same as you -- it took me a couple of clicks to find the info I wanted. I guess it's time to learn the new stuff.
I been using the old adsense, do not like the new at all.

Is it true that analytics software counts unique visitors once, no matter how many pages they view?When unique visitors come to your web-page, they get counted as only one view no matter how many pages they view or how many times they visit, this is according to what I have read on the subject. I...

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?

I am not very intelligent when it comes to traffic stats, so sue me..lolWhy is Google Analytics stats more than the HP stats for the same period? Before you assume that Google logs my visits to my hubs, let me clarify that I have hardly been visiting my own hubs. I have an excess of 400+ visitors...
