    How does it happen that I made $3 for 1 click from adsense and the next day zero for a click?, just a little odd

    Maxx is right, it really is like a lottery or even the stock market.
    I have seen Hubs earn tons one day and almost nothing the next, with no change in traffic or content.

    From what I have been able to gather, is that adsense advertisers pay a certain amount for a click. So, some click earn more than others and some do very badly. smile

    Hope I helped. smile

      They bid for positions on a certain keyword. Keyword is the deciding factor when it comes to the cost per click.

      One thing I'll like to mention about the bidding on keywords; even if someone bids $100 on the keyword 'blonde jokes', he won't be charged more than a certain amount which won't exceed $1 in most cases.

    Yea and don't get astonished if you earn some $20 or so for a click because you can with Adsense.

    BTW, you don't earn anything from a click on PSA or a CPM ad.

      Have you signed up with google adsense? You have to do that and put your user number into hubpages. Then you can check online anytime at your google adsense page (you'll have a user ID and password) to see who has clicked what, if anything.

    I've made $6 on a click and 1 cent on another. If you're really struggling it could be that you need SEO help or better keyword search before you write your hub.
