What does it mean? Does it mean that the amount was earned or not?
for the most part it means you earned that much.
before you get your check, all earnings are edited for fraud - at that time your earning could change..hence the estimated aspect.
Your "estimated earnings" are raw clicks or impressions. However, Google has certain algorithms (I have no idea what they are) that determine what clicks/impressions were legitimate. In other words, let's say someone clicks an ad and then hits the back button on their browser before the new site actually loads--that may count as an "estimated" earning, but will not be paid to you in the end.
So to better answer your question, yes, the amount was earned. It just may not be paid.
Thanks for the explanations.
I still don't understand how I make money from page impressions. Does it mean that when someone is reading my hubs, even though they don't click on any links, I still make money? How many impressions will bring $1?
Does each hub count as 1 impression? Or each item on a hub (say one article, two photos) as 1 impression (therefore the total is 3)?

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I...
