Adsense seems to consider nearly all clicks invalid

    I know we are not allowed to discuss Adsense earnings/CPC/CTR so I will be cautious.

    In my adsense account which earns revenue from Hubpages and my blog I have noticed that I have lots of clicks, a higher than average CTR but Adsense only pays me for about 1% of the clicks.

    I know users do click on ads accidently but this just seems a little low.  Does everyone else notice a similar trend?

      Do not mind them because they are seriously sick.

        Can you explain a little more? I do mind them because they bring in a decent amount of revenue for writers/bloggers, just checking over the last two years I have only received payment for a fraction of the clicks received.  As I said in the original post, I understand some clicks are accidental but surely not this many and I wanted to know if others are having the same experience.

    I'm finding AdSense useless, on multiple sites.

    Have you tried asking about this on the Adsense help forums? because I use Adsense on many sites and am not seeing them failing to pay out on any of my clicks.

      I have looked on the forums for past questions and everyone seems to say the same thing, that Google just considers them invalid.

      Can I ask, when you look at 'performance reports' in your Adsense dashboard and for a particular day you have, as an example 10 clicks, do you see an amount in the 'estimated earnings' column, because on mine I see $0.00 for nearly of them.

    Yes I do see estimated earnings for any period with a click.

    Have you checked for any warnings or banned sites on your account?
