Does Adsense Not Pay Properly for Viral Traffic?
Yesterday my girlfriend's website had a bit of a viral hit on stumbleupon, getting 13,000 visits in a day from them. She got 12 clicks on adsense ads, but apart from the first one they all seem to have paid just a couple of pence. Normally she gets a pretty good price per click.

I've been writing just over a year now and I have a few fairly successful articles. I get decent traffic, but nowhere near where I want to be. All of my hubs are featured and many are picked up by the network sites. I've got a pretty good rating and my hubs are pretty well thought out and detailed...
