Google Adsense Strange Clicks

    badcompany99posted 9 years ago

    This morning I checked my google account and for some reason it was totally crazy yesterday. It was way over 11 percent click rate and had 90 clicks that paid nothing. So I am worried what google will do as they may think it looks dodgy. Anyone ever have that happen to them as I have had adsense a year and never before got that many unpaid clicks and plus they all came in within an hour.

      well it happened to me some months back, when i got some clicks on my ads and made about $30 in a day, i was so happy that i was making big money,  but i must tell you with a matter of two days, my adsense account was closed. so i think one just have to work harder to gain steady traffic.

    Hey BC99, Paul did announce earlier about getting a deal with Google (I think) to allow for more ads on the Hubs...maybe that is what you are seeing? hmm

    For me its just the opposite. I recorded the highest page view yesterday. But only 2 clicks. The impression is really amzing!! My recent published pages really very helpful for getting huge traffic. But my earning is $0 sad. Is it a good thing or bad thing?

      Rancid I just checked your wallpapers hub and the adsense ads dont match the hub. I think if you put more tags that  might get you better google ads relating to wallpapers. Just go to google and type in "wallpaper" and that should give you ideas for a tag, I find a 4 word phrase helps as well. Good Luck !

    Do you have analytics?  The two accounts can be linked, so that you know which article(s) the clicks where made from. 
    I had 9 clicks the other day, with only 15 views, all with in a very short time, but by the end of the day, they evened out.

    Yesterday, I had a record # of views, and no clicks.

    If I were you, I would contact google, to see if they had an explanation.  Hopefully, they would see you as being proactive to prevent fraud.

    do you track each hub's URL in adsense? Did all the clicks come from the same hub?

    I once saw a click in my stats but it had no earnings. Later on in the day, it updated to reflect the amount earned. Maybe it's just taking time to update?

    Although, it sounds like it's an unusual amount of clicks. I would personally contact google and ask them to look into for you. Better safe than sorry! smile

    I had the same experience yesterday, but not with the high CTR. I considered coming here and asking but I didn't want Google to ban me for giving information.

    I got clicks but no cash!

    Watch out that you're not getting spammed.

    One of my sites got attacked by Chinese and/or Indonesian "Adsense hackers" and my Adsense account got disabled. Of course, it doesn't look like they're even gonna pay me all the valid clicks I got them before that happened. Crooks. "Do no evil."
