Are page views & the no. of times hubs have been read the same thing?

    Is the number of page views the same thing as the number of times a hub has been read?

      I don't think so on the HP stats.  I think the 40% of HP's share of page views aren't included in the HP stats.  You can see them on Google Analytics though.

        I find the whole business very confusing and non-transparent.

        I had 108 views yesterday showing in "My Account", the first time ever that I have topped 100. However, Google Ads is saying I had 57 views and HP Ads has only credited me with 42 views.

        I went back to HP Ads last week after the subdomain business in order to see what would happen since I am getting no Adsense clicks. However, more and more I am beginning to think HP Ads is a big con and HP are taking way more than 40% of the earnings.

    Not always.

    Someone could be on the page long enough to register as a view, but not actually read the page.

      That's interesting.  I thought they were the same.

        How would you know the difference between a visitor and reader?

          I have no idea.  As long as I get a view and my followers keep increasing it doesn't much matter I guess.

      Interesting point. Also heard that in some rare cases no adsense impression counted but a click on that ad could happen.

        Hey Top, yes you are correct. On the rare occasion I have received clicks, but had no impressions on a particular hub. It's weird, but been done.
