I have my home page set to my Orlando tourist site, so I see it hundreds of times a day. The two big Google adsense ads on my home page normally show Disney and Orlando vacation image ads.
Sometimes if I have been working on my pet site, they will show pet ads. This past few weeks I have been transferring my cable to my new apt.
I also looked at apt. sites the past few weeks. Now, all the damn image ads on my tourist site shows me cable companies and apartment ads!
I know I'm the only one being shown these types of ads because of my recent viewing trend. But if this is the case of everyone, then they will not see related ads to your article or site.
If they view art sites a lot and check out my tourist site for Disney stuff, they most likely see art ads. Or whatever else they spend a lot of time searching.
Google adsense should just stick to showing everyone ads that are related to the content, not their past search history that has nothing to do with the page they are viewing!!
ah privacy, they can track your searches! That is what G is doing now!!
Ah, but you never can tell if a person visiting your Adsense sites has been doing a lot of research on subjects with high-paying Adsense ads!
One time I got a click close to $4.00, and that never happens on my hubs, so I can only imagine that it might have been from one of those "tracking" ads. I'll never know for sure.
Holy moley - that explains a few things. Thanks Bill! That is a ridiculous way to run a railroad.
Google does seem to be becoming a mess.
In fact, on 60 minutes last night, the phrases “google” and “the wheels falling off” were used in the same sentence I believe…
And they really, really, really have got to stop putting the stolen content above the source original!!!
This might explain some of it. Google has formed an alliance with the U.S. government.

I've never generated a cent from these two programs and they've also never really worked properly. Constantly my adsense claims its active then I'm not approved, then it just mucks up everything. I'm not making any money on hubs as it is but this isn't helping anything.

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

Instead of fiddling around with Google Adsense and Analytics to figure out which Hub is making me money, Can the team add a new feature to show number of ad clicks for each hub?I am techie and I have been fiddling around for almost 3 days with Google Adsense and Analytics to figure out what is...

I keep submitting my request to AdSense, which keeps denying me because of 'insufficient content,' but I have four substantial hubs published AND... ads ARE showing up on my hubs but I'm not being paid for them! Help!

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...
