    Hey All:
    SEMrush
    I just noticed that yesterday a certain website of mine got 7 clicks worth $0.00! What does this mean? Is my head in the AS guillotine?

    The CTR was 9% which is nothing out of the ordinary. Can anyone offer any insight?

    It can also mean a visitor has been clicking allot of ads lately and his ip is not counting in terms of new earnings.

    that's really not that much better. They might assume someone's doing you a "favor"

    If I were you I'd probably report this right away and ask for instructions or an IP to ban.

    Clicking my own ads: Well, I'm not worried about that since I never click my own ads.

    PSA: Not possible since I use the ALT Banner option for all my sites.

    That's my conclusion as well, but what does it mean for me? Can I expect termination for this? Hmmmm.... I'd better start planning for Yahoo and MSN :eek: !

    I remember reading in the past that earnings can take awhile to show. They do have a new tracking system now (real time with channels, etc) so maybe that might be why?

    It's easy to get scared though, you could email and ask them, or wait it out. good luck

    Yes, maybe. I'll wait to see if some digits show up tomorrow. I think I'll wait a few days before contacting them.

    Thanks.

    You sound like a wise person so I don't think that this is from clicking your own ads. I would not worry...maybe flagged for investigation by their fraud detection software. Sleep well tonite...wake up tommorrow and look at it again.

    Maybe Google was just sick of giving you part of their money and decided to take it all this time ;)

    Seriously though, my bet would be that it's been flagged for some reason or the reporting is off. Let's face it, the reporting isn't very good, to say the least.
