Just a quick question really,
After 440 page impressions and just one click - I have earned 0.01...
Is this normal or is it set up wrong (or at all...)
More information please.
Do you have HPAds turned on? If so, you'll earn very little on Adsense because the HPAds are more numerous and visible. The HPAds income should more than make up for that, though.
Do you mean 440 impressions on one Hub, and over what period? If it's new, many of those impressions are from Hubbers, who never click on ads - so you wouldn't expect to earn much.
Which Hub was it? If it was on a subject that doesn't attract relevant ads, then readers would have no reason to click on ads, would they?
I checked one of your Hubs, which is mainly images, and it looks like it's all in one capsule - which has forced the ads right down the bottom, where no one is likely to see them.
Always split your Hub over several capsules, to give ads an opportunity to appear. Also, keep the top right hand corner clear so ads can appear there - it's the prime spot. You may have to make your first capsule longer to allow space for an ad in that position.
Your Hubs in general, are on the short side - this is not a blogging site, it's an article writing site, so aim for at least 400 words on every Hub, and preferably a lot more than that.
That might be a little low on a percentage basis, but not by much. Factoring in the small sample size (440 impressions) it doesn't seem unusual.
In addition, if you are running HPads as well, that will severely limit the number of clicks to your adsense account.
The earnings is low enough that I would suspect it was a public service ad (paying nothing) or an invalid click (paying nothing) and that the earnings was due to impressions, not clicks.
You are also skirting the edge, and probably crossing it, by reporting impressions, clicks and earnings. Google's TOS requires that you keep the click through rate and the CPC to yourself. Publish earnings if you wish, but keep the other things quiet.

Is google adsense only paying for clicks and not impressions? My adsense earnings have almost gone down to nothing. Has anyone else experienced this?

I was kind of frustrated with my earning for a while. Since last Feb as a matter of fact. Last month I decided to block Google certified ads and my earnings a up 100 last month. I would be really interested to know how this works for other as well. I also blocked...

I'm having the hardest time trying to figure out Google Adsense. I applied for it, I was accepted, and it said ads will begin to appear in one of my hubs. In my account the earnings program is active and so is Google Adsense. The question is, do I have to do anything to add Google Adsense to my...

I was refraining about talking about this but it really is bad. Last month with adsense was my most profitable month, but this month so far I got 3 clicks...What could have made this change?-New Hubpages Layout?-April 1st Conflicker Virus? I was thinking these two things can't be so harmful to my...
