    I checked Adsense about 45 minutes ago and it said £1.24 (sterling) for the day so far. I just came in and refreshed the page and it says £0.79.

    What's happening?

    It's not important really because I'm on the HP ads, but I'm curious to know why the amount changes. I have seen it happen before.

      There could be other reasons, but Google does have audits of their clicks and if they notice a person clicking many ads in a way that's far from the norm those clicks are withdrawn in favor of the person paying for the ads.

        So someone could get another into trouble by doing this?

        The earnings were via my website, not HP.

          If you asked someone to click on your ads and they went around clicking 10 ads on your  page when you usually get 1 click from 1000 views, yes that can get you in trouble. I know of a person whose account got banned when a friend clicked on her ads as a "gesture".

          Everything should be fine as long as the preson clicking the multipe ads is not sharing an internet connection with you. If Google detects this kind of activity often and they study the IPs and they find out it was the same IP that can get you banned.

          So, you should not worry, this happens all the time and Google just cancels the earnings so that their advertisers do not lose out. If advertisers lose out because of a person clicking a lot of ads for no reason the won't get a ROI and in turn they may stop using Google Ads. This is why Google does this.

    Found this on an old thread:

    Hi, it's very simple - AdSense uses complex algorithms to track user behavior and if a click is not determined to be a "valid" one, the "estimated earnings" are altered.  Howver, when I see these drops from morning to afternoon, it's a little frustrating.  I am seeing things change in some cases from several cents per click average to less than one cent per click average, why revenues for the AdSense for Search is so low, I have no idea... if I got paid for AdSense for Search clicks what I make on regular content ads, I wouldn't have to go into work at the restaurant later.

    You can see it here: … Dz8cZG52FQ the others are not very helpful I guess.

    Thanks smile

    This bit was also useful (same person),

    "And I meant to mention that when the click is determined to be "invalid" it may just mean that someone clicked the ad but hit their "back" button right after, it not being what  they were looking for - things of that nature."
