Yesterday was a great traffic day for me, at about 250% of normal. Unfortunately, my CTR was way down as was earnings (earnings about 50% of normal)
Today traffic is on the low side, although not too bad. The CTR, on the other hand, is about 400% of normal and earnings over 300% of normal.
All told Monday totally destroyed my all time one day traffic record, and today it was the CTR, no. of clicks and income records that were destroyed. Pretty neat as I also made a rare sale on Amazon, netting $4.
Does it seem that Adsense will sometimes put a hold on reporting clicks, maybe to check for authenticity or something, and then report them the next day?
Just my impression (excuse the pun), and I may be wrong, but I'm not sure they hold clicks. What they seem to do is provide "estimated earnings" and they also do audits (random, perhaps?), so I suspect if a click is found to be invalid, they simply take away the earnings for that click.
I've also seen that you won't always know immediately what hub generated the income. There can be a lag in reporting there, and as some of us have learned, sometimes you never find out.
Yes, I've had that happen. In fact, I have 5 clicks today for $0.00, so that's not new. It just seems odd that a super volume day would produce few clicks, while a sub-normal day would produce the highest No. of clicks I've seen (and by quite a chunk!)
Probably just a quirk of circumstance, but I did wonder if Adsense had a problem with some clicks and held onto them until they could check them out. Especially after so many that earned nothing today.
As far as I am aware all the earnings you see are estimated, until they are audited on a monthly basis.

I know I asked something similar before but I am a bit confused about Adsense earnings. I don't know how on earth anyone ever gets a payout at least from the way I'm going. My Adsense earnings have always been between 0 - 2cents a day with maybe a few days (and I mean a few over about...

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I understand that earnings are not final until final, but the most recent case was...

What determines how much you get per click in Adsense? Is it the topic, or some weird witchy-brew no-one really understands?I ask because 2 things have confused me, looking just now at my account, for the first time in a while.my Easter Eggs hub has been getting lots of traffic and a few clicks...

My traffic is higher than it has ever been (Five Figures), however, my CPM is very low this month. I feel like some of this traffic is going to waste this month. My CPM has been normal since I started using the HP Ad Program in March 2011, but September is not consistent with previous month's CPMs....

Okay, today I have noticed drastic decrease in page impressions and record low earnings in my adsense account. I had not thought before today that google algorithm change will have such a effect on our traffic and earnings. Today, I find myself what I was three years back. Only a few cents per...
