If anyone here is running Adsense on their own site/blog, could you please check something for me?
Run last month’s totals using the “Aggregate” data. Then run last month’s totals using the “channel” data (considering that you have URI channels setup, which I do) These numbers are wildly different for me. I even went through and checked my total earnings and compared them with the two results and sure enough my earnings were recorded and paid with the “aggregate” data and not the channel data. These two values have never been different for me for the last year or so that I have run AdSense, barring March and now April and that makes me really confused.
Am I seeing this wrong or am I losing money?? I have written to AdSense support, but I never have had stellar luck with them. Considering the difference in the two amounts, I would really like to see this resolved to my benefit.
[EDIT] Brandon might have nailed it right on the head
I believe if you have a channel set up for something like: sub.domain.com the stats for sub.domain.com and domain.com will both be counted (one counted twice, since domain.com is in sub.domain.com i think) or something screwy
I have edited my URI channels to make sure this does not happen and I will keep checking them. I might have over estimated some earnings then! My fault.
