    Had Google changed how it counts pageviews?

    Since Thursday my pageviews decreased a lot, but not the adviews and I didn't place more ads per page. I had on average 1.6 adunit-views per pageviews, and now it is 2.65 adunit-views per pageviews. It seems Google had changed how it count pageviews. Anyone noticed it?

    Google counts pageviews and adviews differently now. If you put 3 google banners on a page it counts it as 1 page views and 3 adviews. Before it would count that as 3 page views.

    I know Google conted just adviews and sometime ago started to count pageviews and adviews. The issue is that since Thursday my pageviews droped a lot but the adviews don't. This is what I am finding strange. The ratio adview/pageview was allways around 1.65 and now it is 2.65

    I found the same thing. My Adsense stats are all messed up with my page impressions being a WHOLE lot less than it had normally been although my website stats says its the same as always.

    And this is not a few impressions less, I'm talking of a drop from 2500 to around 200. So there must be some problem with how they are viewing page impressions.

    The ad unit impressions seems about right.

    I have found the same thing, since Friday it has been a little weird. Earnings have been about the same but impressions dropped off a tiny bit and page views dropped off a lot. Traffic on my sites have remained constant though.

    Question Ive found it the other way

    The other way for me, yesterday was over 12,500 page views and I checked with my hosting company and nearly 40,000 visits for the day - 10,000 - 17,000 visits is quite normal, 40,000 is stupid and going to cost me if it keeps up adsense was up a great deal of course but I'd expect more cash from 12,500 pv's. Normal CTR always around 10 - 15%

    Oops, I just realized, that when you check individual channels, it's showing ADS impressions only, but when you check combined report it's showing PAGE impressions, unless you change it to combined ADS impressions.
    That's where discrepeny comes from
