Does anyone know why clicks on adsense ads will sometimes generate little or no revenue? Some clicks seem to generate a dollar or so, and others nothing at all.
it depends on your keywords (price) and the bidding of advertisers for it at different times during the day. Invalid clicks get zero amount - sometimes they look at the ads then immediately hit the back button or you might have accidentally click your own ads.

In past hour one or some of my hubs received almost 39 invalid clicks. Any idea how to remove one's Adsense ID from affiliate settings. Apparently there is no option to do so.
