Google API, stats given by API differs from the GA website

I have an issue with Google Analytics : the stats given by the API are differents from those which come from the Google Analytics website.

Here is what the API is giving me

----------------------------

array (size=1)

              0 => array (size=2)

                              0 => string '08' (length=2)

                              1 => string '121' (length=3) // 121 pagesviews

-----------------------------

 

And here are all parameters I give to GA in order to get this result

  • Start date : 2014-08-01
  • End date : 2014-08-31
  • metrics : ga: pageviews
  • dimension : ga:month
  • filters : ga:hostname==my-host-name.fr

Finally, here is what the GA dashboard is telling me when I put the same parameters Audience Overview:

I think i’va made a mistake, because there is a huge difference between this two results but all parameters are identical. Can somebody help me please ?

Thank you.
