I know that there were some 'clickbombing' attacks on Google AdSense accounts a few weeks back, and that Google was adjusting earnings as a result. Well, even though I have now moved over to the HP earnings programs, I'm still seeing unreasonably high revenue, I assume as a result of someone fraudulently clicking on my ads.
Is anyone else continuing to see much higher earnings in their AdSense accounts than they would reasonably expect, and does anyone know if we should continue to report it? (I reported it originally when the clickbombing started).
Nope, not for me. Are your earnings in line with increased views? If so I wouldn't worry. If not then maybe shoot Adsense or Hubpages an email.
Of course it could be the clickbombing bug again.
Not here either, Paul. Everything is looking fairly normal on the low side.
Yes, still having a problem with this. I notified them twice so apparently they are aware of the issue.
Just the opposite. I've been here more than 3 years and have yet to make one payout on Adsense. However, I exclusively use the HP program.
I agree with that one. Adsense does seem to be pennys per day, if even that. If it wasnt for the ad program, I wouldn't be writing. I know that Google is aware of the high earnings because of last month, they only upped my earnings by a few dollars, not by what it said I made. (I would be able to retire if that were the case)
Just Re-read the last few posts. To clarify, YES, I have been getting extremely abnormal earnings per day. (usually maybe .05 cents, on a good day maybe close to a dollar) When I say Abnormal, I mean like several hundred dollars per day. In the Adsense overview this seems to be coming from Australia for some reason. I don't know much about "Click-Bombing" but have read enough to know what it is. I read not to long ago that Google had issued a statement that they are aware of this issue. As I said, I have reported it twice so i don't see the need to continue to report it. Google stated that we will be paid for VALIDATED clicks, which I know is true from last months earnings.

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...

I think it is related to images being used for the HUB ads and Google ads. When I turned off the Hub ads my adsense revenue rose significantly. I think it is because the block of adsense ads to the right of the column...

Hi folks. I use the AdSense direct implementation, rather than the HP earnings program on HubPages. Over the last couple of days I have noticed that the number of clicks and my earnings have increased very dramatically...
