AdSense for Mobile Content?

    Adsense has been reporting that I receive numerous mobile content impressions lately. I was wondering...do we get adsense click impression time on mobile content pages? I have over 1,000 views under this category but not a single click. (Last month 1 cent impression) I know my normal pageviews get quite a few clicks a month, dividing the clicks to overall views at least 1 every 100-300. I would assume if I am receiving mobile content views that I would have got at least 1 click under it over the past 2 months...

    So do we get click impression time under AdSense for Mobile Content?

      If you have the HubPages Ad Program enabled, there is 1 AdSense mobile unit that runs low down in the page that will report in your AdSense reports, that is likely to have pretty low earnings and click through rate.   Money from 1 or 2 other spots higher in the page is paid out through the Ad Program (and not on a separate line item).  If you are not in the Ad Program, your pages will get a single AdSense mobile unit at the top of the page that does a bit better.  Most will make more from their mobile impression through the Ad Program (because we can run more than 1 ad that way).

        Thanks for the incite Paul! I did have a small number of impressions on the time I had hubpages ads on. Knowing now that that 1 impression was a bottom page one makes more sense. I have also went quite some time with it off and got only 1 impression cent from adsense for mobile.

        @Wilderness - Paul did help explain that alot saying the 1 mobile impression shows on the bottom while the hpads are turned on. That stupid ad spot is seen less then 10% of the time at all...

    Mobile content is notoriously bad CTR and conversions. 

    So far I have had one click off of thousands of impressions which earned me an entire 10 cents on mobile advertising.

      I have earned $7.59 from about 2,500 views this month.  I am not quite sure when I started earning from mobile content.

        $8 from 2500 mobile views?  Come closer and whisper your secret! big_smile

      I agree - the last 30 days has produced 2,900 impressions and 3 cents.  Since it was implemented I've gotten exactly one click for less than a dime.

    @thisisoli - apparently it is! That really blows...

    @2besure - is all 7.59 from mobile content or is that just your earnings in general???

    @wilderness - Yup, again that blows 2,900 for 1 click and less then 10 cents. I would assume you would get more clicks from a phone, they dont have ad-blockers that are easily implemented and the ability to misclick a touch screen is high! Of course maybe they view the content with phones that arnt touch screen...

    Thanks for your imput guys, if anyone else has a mobile content story share it!

      Hah!  That's 2900 views for 3 cents; I don't how long it's been since I got that 1 click, but it's more than a month and more than 3000 views!

      I was kind of excited when I saw I was getting the views; now I just wish those stats weren't wasting my screen space.
