No pay for adsense clicks

    Does anyone know why clicks on adsense ads will sometimes generate little or no revenue? Some clicks seem to generate a dollar or so, and others nothing at all.

      it depends on your keywords (price) and the bidding of advertisers for it at different times during the day. Invalid clicks get zero amount - sometimes they look at the ads then immediately hit the back button or you might have accidentally click your own ads.

      here is a definition of invalid click which amounts to zero https://www.google.com/adsense/support/ … swer=16737

      Invalid clicks might have something to do with it.

      One way of detecting invalid clicks is how long the user stays on the advertised site. Another factor is if there has been clicks from the same IP address on the same Google Adsense Publisher's ads.

    As well as what prettydarkhorse has said, there are sometimes a few clicks that are public service and pay $0.

      Your clicks must have been generated on CPM ads.
