    Nielsen doesn’t reconcile its data.

    Different strokes for different folks. None of these metrics services provide any search measurements worth paying for. They’re all looking at the obsolete metric of page views (a metric no self-respecting SEO would ask a client to pay attention to today).

    What they should be reporting is the number of referrals the search engines make to other Websites. That is the only metric that really matters to the advertising and search-based business community.

    Who cares how many Google page views Google visitors generate as they click around Google’s system? Sure, they’ll see ads, but they’re clearly not clicking on those ads.
