I am using google adsense APIs to get total # of clicks and page_views for a client id. however, I get different results if adding CUSTOM_CHANNEL_ID in dimension.
following query doesn't include CUSTOM_CHANNEL_ID in dimension, the result is consistent with adsense web console (account overview).
GET /adsense/v1.4/accounts/xxxx/reports?filter=AD_CLIENT_ID%3D%3Dxxxx& endDate=2014-09-21&startDate=2014-09-21&metric=CLICKS&metric=PAGE_VIEWS& dimension=AD_CLIENT_ID&dimension=DATE&key=..
in contrast, if adding &dimension=CUSTOM_CHANNEL_ID in the search query (everything else remains the same), total clicks/pageviews surprisingly changed (in some cases, I got larger #, some casesI got smaller #).
I believe this is not correct. the query above itself contains all dimensions and metrics I was using. this issue can be reproduced using other client_id too. does any of you have similar issues too?
