Does reading/reviewing your ad enabled hubs lead to invalid impressions in Google Adsense?
reading/reviewing means checking hub stats of each hub/questions every day.. OR editing Hubs OR checking out your profile etc..
I am not sure. However, I have noticed that when working on a hub that is not published there will be views next to it in the breakdown. I assume since I am signed on then they must know it is my account making the impressions.
It might give you some invalid impressions but that's why both adsense and hubpages say their earnings program isn't accurate immediately. It recognizes that you're always coming from the same IP address so when it calculates impressions at the end of the day and sees that there are several from that address it sort of ignores them and focuses on individual views, or views from the same location that are spread out over the day.
Or maybe there's something to do with cookies saved on your computer. I don't remember exactly.
I know it has the potential to give you slightly inaccurate readings but unless you're viewing the page hundreds of times a day it's not going to have a negative effect on you as the page owner. And earnings are calculated per thousand views so it's not really fraud if you end up viewing the same page 20 times while editing it.

What portion of your invalid links are to your own hubs that were unfeatured?When I get unfeatured hubs, I sometimes don't have time to massage them and get them refeatured quickly. Unfortunately that creates broken links in related hubs, making more of them look bad. Sigh....Is this a problem in...

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...

I'm getting a bit worried in case I have invalid clicks because my earnings for today are zero which doesn't register against the report.

An interesting commentary on why adverts on websites get blocked and just how many adverts actually get seen. You may be surprised....http://www.socialmediatoday.com/marketi … nfographicIt certainly has relevance for a site like HubPages which carries adverts on a routine basis.
