I am getting some clicks which produce less than 5 cent. Tell me is it wise to use adsense competitive ad filter or leave it.
It's a question of quality versus quantity.
Generally speaking, you get more clicks with the filter but at the expense of a reduced payout per click. If you're not getting enough additional clicks to compensate for the lower rate than I'd say you're better off without it.
The best thing to do is trial and error to see what works for you and the subjects you're writing on.
Don't paste any random advertisers url on your filter to block. This will reduce your earning. You need to assess your sites, niche and low click merchants from external programs like adsblacklist.com. Initially you'll get very low clicks and from there you'll get consistent/steady value for your clicks.
If you're just getting 400 impressions/day from adsense and the clicks are low after/before URL filter submission then you'll not see much improvement. Your impressions need to be 1000+/day to show some success or failure signs.
Do your own testing and see if it works for you.
You have to be careful of the URL you are trying to block. Now, there are many ad sites that have teamed up with Google.
That means that if you don't know what your doing, trying to block one URL can in fact block thousands of ads from one ad agency, many that you do want.

I can't believe it. Since I have started earning, I have never had a day when I made nothing. Maybe tonight things will pick up. HubPages, please check to make sure you didn't disable all my ads!

I am pretty new to hubpages, and I hear that a lot of people make money off of adsense and amazon, but I have heard almost nothing about Kontera. Is anyone using this or making any moeny from it? Is it worth my time?

Since I've seen you here. One of your support staff found my account, so I retract my other thread. However, I'm still deleting your service off of my websites. Number one, your revenue reporting is AWFUL. The fact that...

I had about 20 clicks that are worth $3.64. This seems very low for that many. Is it possible that google does not credit all clicks right away, cause last month something strange happened. At the end of the month I had...
