I've just been and had a look on my adsense account and I really dont understand it. Can someone tell me the difference between page impressions and clicks please? Also it says I've got 62(english pennies) in one place, but in the main earnings box it says 0. What does this mean? is it real money?
Page Impressions: The total number of times your hubs/pages have been viewed by visitors with your adsense ads on them.
Clicks: The number of times your ads have been clicked.
You might have earned them yesterday and you might be seeing yesterday's earnings or the all time earnings but you might not have earned anything today, thus maybe today's earnings would be on zero. If you don't get what I am saying, please give some detail where did you see 62 pennies.
And yes, its real money, when you reach the payout which is $100, it will be delivered to you in the form of a check or to your bank account.
I don't have a lot of experience, but I'll try to answer my best.
Page impressions are how many times an add is displayed if a person were to come to your hub.
Clicks are if that person were to click on one of those adds in your hub.
As for the difference in money earned, I think you are talking about the total earnings and today's earnings. If you select "All time" from the drop down list, I think you should see both numbers the same.
Thanks for your replies. I think I got it wrong. I went back and looked again and the 62p is in the estimated earnings box, not how much I've actually earned. I thought I was doing well - I've not been on here very long and from what I can gather, it takes months to earn any money.
Thanks for your comments.
Im just a little better than you Lucianne, on the 'earn' point however I had the same problem understanding it all.
But from now I'm not going to let that bother me at all. My aim is to just write poetry hehe,, But I think if you conecentrate on traffic to your hubs and your hubs that should improve for you.
Good luck )
impressions are how many adds there are to be clicked, and clicks are how many times its actually clicked
Thanks for all your replies. I'm learning a little bit every day.
I must admit lucieanne the reason I give up thinking about the adsense is because I cannot understand it fully hehe. . . . Its all too..... technical for me and I just simply get lost in it...so im just writing , its what i know and love ... But hey missy if you do figure it out, and feel you understand it..then let me know
