    Have you pasted your Adsense ID into your Affiliate control panel?

    I am also new, and I too have a similar problem. I was already an account holder in Google; I have posted my Google Account Number in Hubpages. I am getting page impression details too in Googel Adsense reports. I too do not see any clicks nor any revenue for shared impressions.

      We don't get revenue for impressions only for clicks big_smile
      Check your page views where they come from. If you get views from HP then Probably you are not going to any clicks big_smile
      Because most of the clicks we get from out side of hubpages visiters big_smile

    If nobody has clicked, then there isn't any revenue to share.  Try and be patient, write quality material, and eventually the clicks will come.

      Good advice GG. I also, like Darkside, wonder how the person knows there were clicks.

        We can set up the url channels with each and every HP then it is easy to know which hub is doing good  big_smile

    Thanks folks for the replies.

    In my personal opinion, the wordings in the FAQ pages of Hubpages were a bit misleading on this subject.

    Please see this thread:

    Any revenue generated during one of your impressions (a click-through with Google, an actual purchase with Amazon or eBay) is 100% yours.

    This is the important part, I think.  You keep 100% of the revenue generated from actual purchases or clicks on Google ads, but a page impression is not the same as a click.  It helps to understand that first off, and is not a problem with the FAQ text, but each user's level of understanding as to the terms being used.

      I think you've summed it up correctly.

      There's a difference between a lack of understanding and something being misleading.

      I think it's the use of the word "impressions" that is confusing people, because people use that word to mean "page views".    In this sentence, HP clarifies they mean an actual click-through, but I can see why some people don't absorb that bit! 

      CV, in our discussions I'm sure I mentioned that I earned virtually nothing in my first three months at HubPages.  Right now, your main readers are fellow Hubbers, and we don't usually click on ads.  As your Hubs mature and start to get search engine traffic, that's when you will start to earn.

      If you are signed up for Google Analytics, you can see where your traffic is coming from.  I'm now at the stage where 90% of my traffic comes from search engines.  As the percentage built, so did my daily earnings.

      Misha, I know "impressions" doesn't mean "clicks".  That's why people are getting confused by the above statement (and that's what I was trying to say, obviously not very well!)

      Too many people walk away from that sentence thinking that revenue is generated from impressions!

      To remove all confusion, perhaps HP should change the sentence to remove the word - it would be simple:

      "Any revenue generated from a click-through while your ads are displayed, or an actual purchase with Amazon or eBay, is 100% yours."

    Marisa and Charlotte,
    I think you are missing the piece of the puzzle here. Impressions are not clicks.
    Impressions are the number of times the ad was presented to somebody to view. I believe it's an advertising industry standard term.
    If you have two ads on the same page, one pageview equals two impressions.

    Misha,

    That's what I was saying.. perhaps I wasn't clear enough on it in this thread, but I know I mentioned it today on the forum somewhere in the multiple threads on this topic. tongue

    Edit:

    Gah! I see what I did there.  I wrongly inserted the word page in my response.  I apologize.

    Hi all,

    By the time these discussions have been going on, at last I found some click had taken place and my google account today shows some 0.33 dollars added on account of Hubpages. Hooray! the clock has started running I suppose.

    Thanks for all the help.

    I would agree, Marisa, except that right there in the FAQ right above the item we're discussing is the question "What are impressions?" and I think that gives a clear idea of what an impression is, so maybe it's just a matter here of a possible language barrier (which is not Hubpages' responsibility, otherwise they'd do nothing but translate their pages into every known language) coupled with a lack of reading the whole shabang. smile

      I have a few pence to add:)

      I would be sure if i had clicks if i asked someone to click for me and was not 100% sure they have!!

      I also dont know  if Google will show your account "clicks" if it's a fraudulant click which Google will know this as they are smart and YOU have to be smarter to out smart Google;)

      When I started here at Hubpages, things started off slow "clicks" but the longer im here and more I write my Clicks are alwasy increasing, so as Gamegirl says, "Try and be patient, write quality material, and eventually the clicks will come." 

      Read This Hub, which has all the best Hubs recommended by Hubpages to help increase traffic =ing more clicks!:HERE
