I am part of the HubPages ad program, so the amount I earn via adsense is lower than what I usually earn via HP ads. But yesterday, 19 April 2015, I noticed invalid click activity. On an average, my hubs get a total of 1 or 2 clicks max, but on the 19th of April the report showed 50 clicks and the total impressions were 1000. Today (20th April 2015) the Adsense performance report showed 30 clicks with only 188 impressions. IMO, this is a clear case of click bombing and someone is targeting those articles that are getting less page views. I have reported this issue via the Invalid clicks report. Google will take time and may or may not reply to my complaint, and until then should I disable Adsense? If I do, I won’t earn a cent from the HP ad program. Help!
This is an issue that Google Adsense is aware of. Read this forum. http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/130081

Umm, ya I sent feedback and a screenshot to google because at these rates that they are showing that I am earning, both my wife and I could quit our jobs and retire... No kidding, something is really wrong here
I also noticed earlier today on analytics real time, was showing something from San Fransisco blowing up my profile page, almost like someone kept opening like 50 browser windows. weird

Why do some hubbers get kicked out of the google adsense program?In hub comments some people mention getting kicked out of adsense. They mention that it is because they don't get enough traffic or revenue through adsense. Is this true? What are reasons that you may get kicked off?

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I understand that earnings are not final until final, but the most recent case was...

Does Google Adsense only pay you if someone clicks on an Ad?I was wondering if they payed you at all for just page visits? Or is it only for clicking through on Ads?

In past hour one or some of my hubs received almost 39 invalid clicks. Any idea how to remove one's Adsense ID from affiliate settings. Apparently there is no option to do so.
