6 adsense clicks= 0 ???

    I woke up this morning and my adsense says 6 clicks, yet zero money. I don't see any channels with those clicks. I just got another click and it shows fine, 29 cents.

    Any idea what is going on with those 6 clicks? Where are they coming from, and why no money from them? hmm

    Either public service ads or invalidated clicks.

    Are you able to ascertain which hubpage they come from?

    1. Bill Manning profile image76
      Bill Manningposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I can't find them anywhere. No channels or anything, just says 6 clicks at the top under "adsense for content".

      However they would have come from my own sites, as I get 99.9% of my clicks on my own sites.

        Do they show in Analytics?

        I just looked way down the bottom of my Analytics reports and after paging down over 300 entries I got to the zeros.  There are a few that show 1 click and no income, so I guess it happens, but I didn't see any more than 1 click anywhere.  Six does seem odd.

          I don't use Google Analytics. They already know too much about my biz, I'm not going to give them more ways to monitor all my biz!  tongue

            Your loss.  You are giving up a very useful tool.

        Do you use Analytics? That would be the best way of ascertaining where they have come from.

        Although if you have any referrals anywhere, on any Rev share site, then the clicks may not even be on your content.

        EDIT: You do not use Analytics. Using it from now on will save you future headaches without this. It is also one of the best means of identifying new keywords.

          Perhaps I'll look into getting it. I just get tired of how much information Google has about everyone. I firmly believe the main reason Google gives you a free program like Analytics is to use the information for themselves.

    Like Ryan says, either invalidated clicks or public service.  I seem to be getting more of them lately as well, and quite a few paying just 1 or 2 cents.

      Me 3, I've been getting low ones recently as well. I get about 10-15 clicks in the first hours of the morning which sometimes only seem to amount to about 15 pence, then I've been getting the high ones later on, maybe people read PSA's when they aren't quite awake lol

    Do you have allowed sites enabled? 'm not entirely sure how it works, but it could be that you have your adsense ID on a page not included on your allowed sites list?

    (I don't know if this is correct, just throwing it out there!)

    1. Bill Manning profile image76
      Bill Manningposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      HHmm, that could be. I allowed, then stopped Flicka, as it seems like a very spammy place. But I thought I allowed them again.

      Like the others said, maybe it was one of those other reasons they mentioned. I did not know clicks on a public service ad gets shown on your stats.

      On a side note, something Ryan mentioned in another post, my amount per click has gone way up at the start of this month. So he was right that some sponsors run out of their budget at the end of the month.

      Makes sense. Plus at the start of a month they all have that "go for it" attitude and pay more, then pay less as they slowly lose money throughout the month! lol

        Well, that is another possibility: cached or stale pages left in a tab and then someone returns to click on an ad that isn't funded any longer?

  5. Bill Manning profile image76
    Bill Manningposted 7 years ago

    Hmm, my bad. I clicked on the "show all channels" and it does show the 6 clicks. All of them on my tourist site, 6 clicks and no money from them.

    Must have been the public service ads, or someone clicked too many times and it disregarded those. Well now I know, sorry about that! smile
