No money for clicks

    Hi. I noticed that sometimes I get clicks, then also the money for those clicks appears, but some time later it's back to zero.

    Of course, I don't click my own ads and I also didn't ask anybody else to do it.

    How come this yet happens? What kind of error could that be?

    Why would somebody do that?

    Great, now I have to be afraid to be banned from Adsense?

    There is an option in AdSense account, in which you can submit the specific date on which some miscellaneous or unusual activity has happened for your account. And if someone would have been clicking on your site that fastly then you would have banned since ages. Or may be your site is suffering from very low RPM which is resulting in negligible CPC.

    Regards,
    Sunny

    Hmmmm...... most likely sunny27 is right your cpc must be negligible thats why this might be happening. Check your cpc if it is below 0.05 cents then your niche just doen not pay well. And if your rpm is below that number too then you cannot make any money off of adsense anyways.

    Well, my CTR is very low, not sure about the CPC.
    Thanks for all the comments!

    Sometimes your Adsense account will show money for a click, which is later reversed (often at the end of the month). I once questioned Google about this, and they said that the visitor did not stay on the advertisers landing page long enough to enable Adsense to charge the advertiser for the visit. They claim it keeps the returns for ad campaign expenditure fair. Trouble is - if the landing page is no good, and the visitor bounces, that is not our fault. We did our part and delivered the traffic - so I think we should be paid for that. But what argument can we give to Google? They control everything - we are helpless.

    So the advertiser never actually gets the visitor to their site, but you think it's fair that the advertiser pays for the click do you? Not their fault either! Googles first duty is to protect it's advertisers - what if one got 100 clicks from your site and no visitors, if it was you then how happy an advertiser would you be?
