    If you click those ads yourself, yes.

    If you're getting more than 7 clicks and only netted .05 cents, many of your clicks were invalidated because Adsense has judged them to be fraud. Even at .01-cent a click (not unheard of) you should have made more than .05-cents.

    Or, it is possible that you are having friends of yours click on the ads...friends who are proably located on the same network as you.

    I am willing to guess this has to be a game or entertainment site

    True That, if all your clicking buddies are on the same ip, your scheme will be definitely cracked open by the "G" bots.

    I second that. Too much publishers and less advertisers. :D

    I think this is because of low paying rate or invalid clicks.

    did you do a research on the keywords you are trying to target? maybe this is the normal cost per click. if not maybe too much fraudulent clicks

    Does google count clicks on public service ads or CPM ads?

    Naaah, don't worry guys. Sometimes that happens.

    I get $1.00+ clicks from one of my cites. $1.00+ for each click

    But from another site, I get like 10c for 4 clicks. I am planning to close that site. But ocasionally I get 90c clicks too on that site, but mostly a few cents.

    Cents per click you earn will vary with the kind of site you have. Like if you had a site with lots of content about "student loan consolidation", you'll get well-paying ads.

    On a site like mine, a free dating site, we get around 7-10c a click on average, which about the same as the world's biggest free dating site, plentyoffish.com gets.
