A few hour ago i checked my Adsense earnings and it was £xx. When i went back to check half an hour later, my earnings had dropped by over £2.
Now, it may not seem like much, but this has happened once before a few months ago, and i feel i need to have an idea of why that happens (that is if it has happened to other hubbers).
I certainly don't click on my ads because that's stupid and detrimental to my success, and i don't have friends or relations who know i earn from Google, let alone click on my behalf.
I find it unsettling and wish to know reasons for this. I hate to think that its some Google hanky panky.
Any views on this will be much appreciated.
It's quite common. It's based on Google double checking numbers etc and verification after the fact.
Thanks Wrylilt, that's good to know. It certainly makes me feel better.
You'll also find that when you reach payout, the amount you earnt and the amount they pay you can sometimes differ. They do a final check just before they pay you (for obvious reasons!)
This happens to me a LOT!
It's always the larger clicks Google discounts, never the penny ones. I see very very few clicks these days anyway, so it is noticeable when they takes the price of one away.
Don't worry as long as you traffic source is fine and you don't click on your ads.

I have heard that one's earnings has to reach a threshhold of $100 before he gets paid by Google Adsense. Does that mean that if you have two Hubpages accounts linked to Adsense your earnings in each account must reach $100 ($200 in total) before you are paid? Or will Adsense pay you when your...

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...

On browsing the forum, I have become aware that we can't earn on HubPages without AdSense. This is a grim realization for me.I have 29 featured hubs that are generally considered to be of reasonable quality. I applied for an AdSense account over a year ago, and since then I've had nothing. When I...

While I link my Adsense account, it directs me to Google, which then asks if I want to accept the association, I say yes, then it directs me back to Hubpages, but it just loads a blank page, nothing comes up. I could not find anything like this in the help section, is there something else I need to...
