Adsense : No change

    I am new to adsense since coming to HP. I had 1000 visits last 4 days, and over 1900 impressions (total) and 980 in last 4 days, but 2 clicks (I think since last time) yet my estimated earning remains same as before.

    Does anyone know why? I am new to all these so it is not making sense to me. I thought to ask here as many of you are familiar with adsense! Thank you.

      The only thing that comes to mind off the top of my head is that they were fraudulent clicks, which you won't earn money for.

        Donna,

        Humm..how do I find out? I sure did not click and my friends and family do not care to my HP at all.

          Honestly I don't know how you'd check for fraudulent clicks from an Adsense perspective. I know from the perspective of someone who uses Google advertising (because I used Adwords for years) that fraudulent clicks are not charged to advertisers, and the amount the advertiser gets billed every month already has any fraudulent clicks deducted from it. I used to see it on my bill every now and then as an "adjustment" although I can't remember what the exact terminology was anymore.

    It depends on who your visitors are (external or internal traffic, hubbers don't click on ads) as well as your contents and the layout of your hubs. It is normal to see $2-5 in revenue per 1,000 pageviews.

      WE,

      I am assuming most of traffic was HP traffic for winning the recent hub nugget and being part of recent contest. There were small enough google traffic though based on analytic. 

      Any hints on what to do next? Not that I am making big money here but love to know what is causing this. Thanks as always.

        Now you are hitting my soft spot: How to make money on HubPages. Massive traffic and/or high value traffic probably starts with keyword research, perhaps paired with some backlinking and RSS feed submission. You will also want to make clear whether your hubs are most suited for Amazon. Either way, you have got your work cut out for you. Good luck!

    If you click on the stats icon on the top of your hub you will  see a graph of where your traffic comes from...

    Check your traffic source. Only organic traffic from search engines have high CTR = money.

    Some topics/subjects have very low CTR (even zero CTR), even if they drive high traffics. I saw your best hubs is about movie, in my experience it doesn't convert to money, very low CTR. Perhaps this also one of the problems.

    Start worrying about CTR only if you have good no of visits from google.

      TopUniverse,

      Will do. Even if I worry, it won't make difference without traffic. LOL.
