I see clicks but earnings say zero

    I just went to my Google AdSense account to check my stats and I see a click for today but the estimate earnings show $0.00. And I think I've had something like this happen to me before. I think I've even had days where I had zero clicks but estimate earnings actually showed earnings like $0.01 or $0.03, etc.  How is that possible?

      It's happened to me before, it's probably happened to everyone at one time or another.

    Google might have counted those clicks as accidental or that those clicks came from you.  Don't ever click on your own ads.  If you earned something like a couple of cents, those came from your total number of impressions.

    You get earnings per thousand visitors, it is just incredibly low.

    You also might have had a click that was really low value, or a fraudulent click.

      Huh. I didn't know that. Explains the occasional 2 or 3 cents I see appear on days when I don't get clicks.

    It could be  :

    1. Public service ad
    2. Low value ad
    3. Fraud Click
    4. Discarded click/Accidental click

    Make sure hubpages.com is in your list of allowed AdSense sites! This was a mistake I made at first.
