When Adsense Channel Earnings Don't Add Up

adsense doesn't add

In order to protect the innocent (me) these numbers are intentionally distorted to hypothetical but they are accurate in how they describe what I see.

When I go into the detailed view that shows individual channels I see my "4" channels and their earnings for the day

Chan1 - $20
Chan2 - $10
Chan3 - $4
Chan4 - $7

Total Earnings $34

That's the problem - the 4 channels report earnings that would total $41 but the Total Earnings for that point in the day would read $34

Am I missing something?

Thank you all!

You are missing the fact that the same ad could be reported in two different channels.

For example you could have a 300x250 above the fold ad channel to track the performance of that ad. It could also be counted in a URL channel you have set up. As the same revenue would be counted in two different channels it would lead to the kind of discrepancy you're reporting between your daily totals and the sum of the revenue from your channels.

L80 - thank you for your reply - that is probably exactly what is happening here - Thanks!

I agree in the sense that Google could make it clearer in the description.

If you remove any "duplicate" channels from your report (e.g. extra channels that you make visible to advertisers), your numbers should match.

It cost me more in billable time to read this thread than you have listed in total earnings but that's not important now... ;)

There are lots of reasons your AdSense channels don't add up and you probably overlooked something.

I always make a list of my domains as channels and if the DOMAINS don't add up to the AdSense totals, then someone might have your adsense code on another server and you need to alert AdSense ASAP that fraud might be happening.

Hello there guys.

I had the same problem with one channel. I e-mailed google adsense and they admitted they had a problem. I lost quite alot of money during the week this happened. I didn't get a refund for the lost revenue.

Better give them an e-mail.

Took me about a minute to read, I guess that would make your rate about $2000 per hour, or you're a very slow reader... ;)
