Google AdSense Forum

Number of page views

Im sure this has been asked before, but why for example does Adsense say in Jan i had say 6000 page views when i know from my server i had 10000 page views (and i know the amount is 10000 and im not including search engines here just actual users, as i know they are users by there web browser ver and o/s ver) and if there is a Ad on each page it should count as a view ?

Ive also recently moved from a html based site to php and will monitor if this gets me more hits, as its a better layout etc hopefully so.

I feel at the moment i get a very low earning per day compared to the number of visitors i get.

AdSense doesn't report page views. They report AdSense impressions. If a visitor has Javascript disabled on their computer, there is no AdSense impression.

Do that many people really have Java disabled, think ive only seen the odd PC in my time. I will post the exact stats later see what people think.

You're not eliminating all the spider traffic. Tons of rogue spiders use the browser ID of a standard Firefox or Explorer user.

just because you are seeing ads when you view a page doesnt guarantee that everyone that views the page will see an add. this is particularly true when you have visitors from other countries. advertisers can (and often do) geo-target their ads, and they may be targeting their ads to visitors in some countries, and not in others.

I don't believe Adsense records duplicate page views either, page views from visitors "backing" out of your site after viewing several pages.

A few good points there thanks.

We had this same problem on one page on one of our sites, the one that always got the most pageviews. Even after taking into account spiders, etc., Google was undercounting Adsense impressions vs. log stats' recording of impressions by a third. We took the code off, published the page without it, generated new AdSense code, put it on the page and then re-published it. Worked like a charm. AdSense stats and log stats are now in sync.

Did you use "new" style code versus old code? Code that supports "Managed Ads", versus code that does not?

I don't believe I'm currently seeing a miscount on unique page views, but your change is huge.

I have noticed an earnings boost anytime I regenerate, AND, republish code, (for a couple days anyway). Many refer to this as a "reset". Historically there have been several ways to "reset" accounts and boost earnings, but I digress.

It was the new code, the "Managed Ads" code, that we put on the page when we republished it. I don't have any explanation for it. It just worked. It's been about 6 weeks now so I think it will stick. I hope so.
