I dont think so, I am sure its earnings you can not speak about,
It's the other way round, GPT. You CAN talk about the earnings but never reveal the CTR in real numbers.
Think you have read some misleading information, I read on Google T&C's that you can not reveal your earnings,
I couldn't resist commenting on this before I slept, but I think you'll find that Marisa Wright is, well, right.
no in fact we are both wrong you can disclose proof of payment, but can not disclose earnings.

~Yep, that clearly says amount of payment, not proof of payment.
No it says you can talk about payments, this is not earnings, the earnings that you see within google adsense are part of the other statistics. so you can talk about you check but you can not say what is in your account,

Hope this help.
Whether its about earnings or payments, you can talk about it.
You can't talk about CTR.
It's perfectly fine to show a screenshot, provided you have blurred out everything except for the earnings column.
The earnings report and the display of earnings is part of Google software, and statistics. This is not payment. They say you can disclose payment, as required by law, for tax purposes.
Its not my interpretation of it, that's Google's T&C's
I will contact them and ask, last thing i want is for people to get banned from Google for not understanding their T&C's. Don't hold your breath for a response they normally take a few days.
Yes, it is. Just substitute the numbers with words. It's perfectly fine or so I choose to believe.
You'll get to it someday, no doubt about it. Besides, I have *only* 13 forum posts in 7 months. Go figure!
Yes true, I dont think google activly go looking around for people breaking their terms in fact it will be other members that report it to Google, the earnings that you see are just statistics, this is not money or a payment of any kind. This is Google's T&C's not mine
I was not fully aware of this until earlier in this post. I did a quick read of their T&C's when i first joined years ago, I did another quick read a few months ago, but when you sit down a look properly you see the trips.
That's your interpretation of it.
Top earners have displayed their screen shots with earnings showing. Google don't have an issue with that. Discussing earnings is not a violation. Google allows it.
Despite the fact that I think it's retarded, Google don't like people publishing their CTR.
Its not illegal, I dont even think asking is against their T&C's Just trying to catch you out
No I will delete the post only because I don't want anyone to list their stats.
Oh, and to answer your question, my last pay cheque from Google was a week ago, and I'm already $85 towards my next one.
My last payment was $122 Canadian which I received a week ago.
