What is going on here? That is the third time this week Google has removed an ad click for over $2.
I'm in the middle of an experiment comparing HPads and Adsense alone, so obviously I'm keeping a close eye on every click, especially as there aren't that many of them compared to the number of views I am getting.
It happened yesterday and again today. Each time I went into Analytics to determine where the click came from and on which hub.
Each and every time, they can tell me the hub but not where the click has come from.
The one yesterday only had 6 visitors in total - 5 from google.co.uk and 1 from yahoo. The one today had hundreds of visitors from all over, even a few from HP.
Are they disallowing all bigger clicks when their software can't find out where it's from? I'm getting to keep the 10 or 20 cents clicks that don't have a source, just not the bigger ones.
Anyone else having this issue?
Izzy you do know they remove what they consider invalid clicks right?
I'm not saying this is what happened in your case, but I have seen it done.
I have seen it happen before, just usually not that big of a click.
Yes of course and that was my first thought too. I know I didn't make them, but who knows when it comes to other people?
But it is only the bigger clicks, and I don't know about anyone else, but I am simply quite unable to determine which are the higher paying ads on any given page, and this is ONLY higher paying ads that are being taken off.
I think this Game has been Played for a Hell of a Lot Longer than this week mate!
Isn't TRUST a wonderful fallacy in the Corporate World of Hubbing?
So many clicks have been mysteriously redirected to help struggling bankers, political party supporters and greedy penny-pinching media magnets!
Thank Goodness we are still valued and we still get the .01c clicks huh!
They usually remove or reduce click values due to miscalculation or fraud.
Right, assuming someone here is actively clicking on my ads to cause problems for me (or trying to help me out) should I do something?
Should I contact Google, or ignore it?
If there is a pattern, you should report it.

The only pattern I am seeing is the click value. Clicks are still way low per views, but thanks I will report it anyway.

Thought I would post this to see what other people's experiences are. I recently had a flood of hundreds of Google visitors to one of my hubs, which one would think would equate to many monies. Everywhere I go on this great interwebs, I seem to run into the refrain of Google traffic being the be...

I have been a bit puzzled about the way Google Adsense pays. There is reference to page impressions and clicks. I know that clicks get paid for at various rates, but I am not sure about impressions. Does the number of page impressions bring in any revenue. For example, some of my articles get...

I got into an interesting discussion on another thread, and thought it would make a good thread itself. The question of the day is how do you feel about other hubbers clicking on an ad in your hubs?Personally I really don't see a problem with it as long as the ad interests them from a good quality...

This morning I checked my google account and for some reason it was totally crazy yesterday. It was way over 11 percent click rate and had 90 clicks that paid nothing. So I am worried what google will do as they may think it looks dodgy. Anyone ever have that happen to them as I have had adsense a...
