money earned--why does it seem to be so

    I go and check my google earnings about once a week, maybe less.  I have noticed that for four or five days I will make nothing, or maybe a few cents.  Then, one day I will have like $2.14, then again I will go several days with earnings of .02 a day.  Why might this be?

    I dunno, that's exactly my pattern of earnings as well!

    I could be wrong here, but I *think* it's got something to do with where in your hubs people are clicking.  The ads at the top of a hub are the ones that advertisers pay most for, so they're the ones that would generate the highest click value for us as well.  Whereas ads right at the bottom of a hub are worth peanuts. Maybe every so often Google puts in ads at the bottom of a hub that are more attractive to readers than the one at the top.

    I don't check my earnings as much as I used to, because I find the same thing happens to me. It's a bit of a roller coaster ride i'm either thrilled or a bit disapointed. Mine usully depends on traffic and article's viewed. However I don't really know why?
