But the other day I was checking the stats from all sources and MyBlogLog and Adsense stats confused me a lot. The variation is simply too mind blowing. Check out the MyBlogLog stats for the blog:
MyBlogLog Adsense Stats:
I had used a 300×250 adsense unit on that post which brought in a whoooping 92 clicks! Thats like a 30% of CTR! I am amazed! But later when I dived into the stats again, I found it hard to believe that StumbleUpon can boast about this high a CTR. SU users hardly tend to click on ads.
Here is what Google Adsense for that day showed:
Thats awful! So, was it MyBlogLog stats screwed up? Or was it adsense being stingy with me? 😛 I think the culprit here is MyBlogLog’s stats since it was mostly StumbleUpon crowd to that post that day in the weekend.
And I am not alone on discovering this. Whats your take on this? I would really love to hear your say on this since its a problem affecting all of us and its about making money online!
