I got a click today! Between using HPads and the changes made to adsense I seldom get any clicks. It's been two weeks since the last one (about 10,000 views), but I got one today! I'm so excited!
It was for a penny.
Someone must have knocked their mouse off the desk.
How did you know? And then I fell off the chair, landed on the mouse, and squished it's guts out!
But it was worth it - a real click! Just think of that!
Whenever Adsense mistreats me with no clicks or penny clicks, I go back to hpads.
Well you have 1c towards a new mouse at least - at this rate you'll get a new mouse in 2068! (OK I made that up, can't be bothered to calculate it).
I like your spirit. Bully for you! Let's go camping and share some s'mores. They are better than a click. Sharing your pain.
Yes! You can flip it. You can put it on the train tracks and let the train squash it like my mouse. You can feed it into one of those machines that puts the statue of liberty or something on it. You can put it behind a fuse and shut down the town ( I did that as a kid - blew up the transformer on top of the power pole).
Thank you, Google!
OK, so I don't really follow Adsense and have never really bothered to learn much about it. I have basically written it off. I using HP ads and doing OK with that. But this thread made me curious. I went to check my adsense reports, and in the last 7 days I've had 1797 page views and 1 click. Does that sound right?
Given that I've gone over 10,000 views with but one click for a penny I can only shake my head in envy.
A lot of people have ad blockers now or totally ignore ads. For these reasons you won't see many clicks. It's sad but true. I get a check from google every eon or 2 though so I am happy
Truly, I've about given up on adsense. I've got a balance of $70, but at the rate it's collecting funds it'll take several years to make that $100. Maybe I'll kill HPads for a week and see if I can kick adsense over the edge.
You might be pleasantly surprised. Adsense has been nice to me lately.
You know, this might be the month to do that. Get my payout from HP and turn it off to see what happens and maybe make payout from adsense as well.
I had a problem with adsense a couple of months ago when I got dozens of clicks, all for $0. Somebody playing games, I guess, but that seems to have passed. For a while I got an occasional click but HP made some changes in the ad program and I lost those. Maybe it's time to give it a shot again.
I got more than $12 of Adsense clicks in one day a few days ago...
... on my blog,
... not on Hubpages.
Well, I shut down HPads for a time to see if I can kick adsense over the payout. Maybe it'll be good to me too.
They must be giving you mine along with yours. They've really been mean to me come July.
I have no idea how I accomplished it but my views have doubled in the last sixty days?
I hit payout for July this morning.
They've been saving it up for me. Already a couple of bucks today.
wilderness it might be worthwhile trying to out some Adsense adds in a blog or writing for another site that has Adsense ads as well as writing for HubPages. That might speed things up a little bit towards the payout threshold.

Can it go against Google rules if they have deliberately done this thinking they are helping you? I am worried because I just had a comment posted saying "thumbs up and adsense."

one of my friend has got almost 10.000 views from his around 100 hub in 5 months. But not a single click yet. Is is possible or any error? I am confused. What is your normal click through range? I believe what ever the topics or keywords are in every 100-300 organic views one can get at least...

I have been a bit puzzled about the way Google Adsense pays. There is reference to page impressions and clicks. I know that clicks get paid for at various rates, but I am not sure about impressions. Does the number of page impressions bring in any revenue. For example, some of my articles get...

My adsense earnings have reduced from dollars to only a few cents per month. Revenue used to average about 40 cents per click, now it is only one or two cents per click, if there is any click at all. Just wondering if it is the same for everyone.

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

I'm using adsense with both HubPages and my own blog <snipped link>. Everytime I get a new click it's from that other site. Now, I know my hubs aren't very popular, but is there any way to know if I did not get a single ad click since I started here or if there's something I did wrong?
