A week ago, I checked my MyBlogLog’s statistics and my Google Adsense report an noticed a difference in both their reports. MyBlogLog reported that in the past 7 days (at that time), there was a total of 14 clicks on my Google Adsense Skyscraper banner (on the right) and another 10 clicks on my Google Adsense Link Unit (on top).
However, when I checked the report posted by Google, it showed that I only received 2 clicks on the Google Adsense Link Unit.
I sent an e-mail to Google Support and was asked to provide screenshots of it. Few days later, I received an e-mail from them saying they could not resolve the difference that MyBlogLog and their system is showing. It is understandable, since they do not have access to MyBlogLog’s system. After all, how much does 22 clicks on their banners in my blog are worth? Probably between USD1 to 2 if I’m lucky.
However, the point I am trying to raise isn’t the cash that I could have potentially earned being lost but, why are there such a big difference between both system’s report? No doubt that Google is an enormous company with top IT people (probably in the world), but I believe MyBlogLog does not have amateur programmers behind their system as well. So, how is it possible that there was such a big difference? I could accept it if there were less than 5 or so but 22 is a bit too much.
I still strongly believe that Google’s reports are accurate. However, I just can’t find a reason to explain what is happening with my statistics. Anyone out there ever had the same problem as I did?
