I noticed that Google Adsense reported lower than HP stats. Recently I set up a website with Weebly, and the Google Analytics are not only 24 hours behind, but are often less than half that of the Weebly Stats.
Searched the net, and seems this problem is universal - GA reports much lower than any other stats. Is that so they don't pay people as much for Google Adsense?
Can't speak to weebly stats, but don't forget that google stats are on a calendar day, while HP stats are on a rolling 24 hour basis.
In addition, google reports only those that carry your code; the 40% attributed to HP do not get reported. HP stats separate out any slideshow views while google does not. I've got informative type hubs with more total slideshow views than views according to HP.
There are likely other factors as well, and it all makes it very confusing when comparing stats.
My adsense stats run from 9am - 9am, while my Analytics stats run 12mn - 12mn which is confusing too.
Also, twice in the past week (including this morning) I have had a click for over a dollar, which has disappeared from my adsense stats but not analytics at the next refresh.
I've just added up my earnings since last payment and checked it against the daily stats I keep myself, and those dollar clicks seem to be still getting paid for.
All very confusing.
Adsense seems to run midnight to midnight Pacific Standard Time. Analytics I don't know.
I only seen a very few clicks on analytics but not adsense (like one or two in a year) but the reverse was almost daily until Panda took away all the clicks anyway.
And if you're getting $ clicks, you're cheating! Those were mine!
Yes you are right it is midnight PST. We are PST + 9 here. What is even more confusing is that Analytics not only runs midnight to midnight my time, it reports in dollars while adsense pays in euros.
Hands of my clicks LOL, bad enough Adsense apparently nicking them back without them going to someone else!
My clicks are still well down, but I'm in the middle of an experiment to see which pays better - adsense or adsense +Hubads.
So far the latter is winning by about a dollar a day, if I don't count the missing dollar clicks!
Confused yet? I am!
I think you need to learn to play nice and to share, Izzy. I may have to have a talk with your momma.
Yes, I saw you were running a test - my own showed about the same thing with HPads winning by a fair margin. The only question being Amazon - while some think it has no effect others swear that HPads hurts Amazon. I don't know and don't have enough data to even make a guess.
Confusion is king.
You guys are cool and good to be with because I am new to this.Dont be suprise
I have several Weebly websites now (owned and non-owned) and their stats are very accurate. It's very weird that the Google information lags, but then there are hundreds of millions of websites for them to track too. The more "middle men" your stats have to go through, the slower the stats tend to appear.
Is it just me or is Hub Ads doing very good, as mine almost doubles every few days. Adsense is just crawling in snail-like fashion by comparison.
There are an awful lot of promo ads for signing up to Adsense around the web everywhere...I wonder have they noticed the lull too? Damn that Panda update! LOL!

If I get a click on a Google ad on one of my hubs, does it reflect immediately on my Adsense report page or is it held by Hubpages until the end of the month or thereabouts. Just curious because I am getting a lot of...
