After adding one referral button per page to a site with about 20k page views per day, my stats looks a mess.

It seems as if every referral button impression is counted as a seperate page view, which messes with CTR as well as eCPM values.

I sure hope the smart pricing algoritm takes out the referral impressions, or I'm looking at some difficult times...

Yeah same happened to me .. I took the button off, now it seems to be about OK.

I noticed the effect on ctr and CPM.

More serious problem is the (eventual)consecuence over smart price algo.

May somebody at Google clarify this? Please...

Than you.

Posted Nov 5th. I haven't heard a word about a fix. Good to know it still doesn't work.
I don't think referrals will catch on until this is fixed.
