Why is there a Huge Difference between Pageviews on Google Analytic and Adsense tool?

I'm getting very few page views on my Adsense account. However, my blog traffic is decent.

    IMO, Both GA and Adsense works through some JS codes. And, Adsense JS often get blocked by adblockers, or tracker protection plugins, and they failed to render properly in the user's browser. On the other side, GA JS code works fine in 99.99% of cases.

    This is a pretty similar case on why HubSpot analytics shows different(lower) value than GA.

    I can list 4 probable causes as to why there is a variation in pageviews shown in google analytics and Adsense tool.

    1. Because the AdSense ad code and GA tracking code
    is located in different part of your page, it is possible that one of these JS snippets will load and the other wont.

    2. AdSense use iframes to show ads. Browsers that do not support will not register an impression.

    3. Analytics and Adsense time zones might be different. Then two sets of reports will be aggregated for different time periods.

    4. Filters used in analytics. Your current view in Google analytics might be using some filters which reduce the pageview count.

    Both works on tracking enabled via JavaScripts. Sometimes people use ad blockers that is why you are getting differences in page views. Even Google Analytics don't show you all the interactions of users on the website. GA uses data sampling which shows only a subset of data. You should use one more analytics solution to make sure that you are getting all the data captured. Its better to go for a real-time analytics solution which provides actionable insights on your data. Getting prediction on user behaviors can make your job easier.

    You can also solve this issue by making a small adjustment on your Google Analytics setting view.

    Go to Admin Settings -> View Settings.

    Then you can find Bot Filtering option there. Just mark that option and save all the settings.

    In result, it will provide all accurate data and it will be similar to Adsense data.
