Anybody please tell me what is the difference between page views and page impressions, because I dont get the same number of page views on my hubpages statistic page and page impressions on my google adsense report.
I hope to get a reply soon.
Good question, I was wondering the same thing. Will check back for response
Your Adsense publisher code doesn't get 100% of the page views at Hubpages.
As a Hub Author you get 60% of the page views.
They actually mean much of the same thing with a small difference.
Page Impressions are normally related to advertisements. For example: You place three banners on your webpage and one person sees this banner 3 times. Therefore, this banner gets 9 impressions.
Page Views are normally related to users and browsers. You may see you have larger page impressions than actual visits.
This is because one user may browse more than one page on your website. So one user is counted as one visit.
His page views are cumulatively added to the raw total that you get to see
Ok my pageviews at hubpages is always a few hundred more than my pag impressions in adsense.
I don't usually pay all that close attention to this, but today my Page Views at HubPages shows 740, while my Adsense Page Impressions shows 28. (That's about 3.8% for anybody who doesn't want to do the math.)
Is that normal? It seems like an *awfully* big discrepancy. Or did I just have a really, really unlucky day with the 60/40 chance of my code being on the page when it loads?
That is an awfully big discrepancy. When you say "today," you do realise that hubpages has a rolling 24 hour period and adsense only reports after the end of the day?
What does it look like for last week?
Thanks, Mark. I thought that might be the problem, because a lot of the traffic came from one sudden spike yesterday morning to a particular hub, but today it's showing that I had 62 page impressions yesterday, 8 today, and 423 for the week, against 1308 for my 7 days figure on HP. (Though 32% is much better than 3%!) Much of the spike appears to have been from within HubPages (must have landed on Hot Hubs or something) so I don't know if that makes much of a difference or not. I suppose I probably didn't lose any clicks either way.
Good question Favorites! Always wondered that...
Huh, well I guess you learn something new everyday then!
lol Always as in the last 7 hours you have been here?
Dropping a meaningless comment on every forum thread in sight will get you nowhere.
You underestimate the power of hawt chick profile pics Mark
If for any given hum a visitor visits one time - does that reflect a 1 in the page view column for that hub? Or does a 1 in the page view statistics stand for 10 or 100 actual page views. I am asking because a friend, on his own lap top found with google one of my hubs and opened it. but we got no page view showing on the statistics till the next morning and then it was a 3.
Any one have an idea how that works?
Even I dont knew the difference. THANKS FOR PROVIDING THIS USEFUL INFORMATION
darkside, u've siad that hubpages owns 40% of our pageviews, will that percentage go up n time? and does they hav a provision to select the pageviews with clicks exactly.
Sorry HP authorities for these silly questions. No offense meant- just a scrutiny on the running of the site and once again i believe in Hubpages.
I am so confused by this! I have 82 page views total on HP, but only 26 page impressions on Adsense (about 32%). Even so, i havent made a scent. However, i'm less worried about the views-to-impressions ratio than actually making money. Does anyone have any tips or helpful info about how to make more money / get people to click on the links?? thanks a ton!

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?

Hello again! So looking at my Adsense Overview, I see a particular number of pageviews that doesn't seem to correspond to the page visits in Hubpages I have for the corresponding day. I currently only have Hubpages as my active Adsense account. An example is (not my real numbers)total impressions...

I just disabled Hubpages ad program last week to test out how much I would earn/lose if I just kept Adsense. My page views are not counting--the articles viewed showing on my account in Hubpages is more than what Adsense is picking up, by a large number. I checked and Hubpages is linked...

What is the difference between Page Views and Page Impressions?On Hubpages, you can see how many page views you have had through the day, but when you go into Google Adsense you see Page Impressions. Why is it that the Page impressions are half of what my page views are? Shouldn't they be one in...

OK. Here is the deal... On average, my hub stats say I get about 150 visits a day and Adsense shows about 5 page impressions. For a week, my Adsense account showed "No Data Available" and my Google Ads did not show up in my hubs. But I think that this was due...

Ok so to keep this short, approx 25% of my page views are giving a page impression IE an AD showing which gives the chance to be clicked on. This seems low, and has been about 25% for the last 2 months.Any ideas on how I can increase my Page Impressions per page view ratio would be great.Thank you...
