|No clicks, but I have earnings|
This morning, due to hosting network issues, my site was down for about 3 hours. When it went back up I checked adsense and saw I had earnings.
Not just earnings, but all my channels showed money in the eCPM column, usually it's only the channel that had a click.
So I'm a bit confused, as of now, I have earnings & clicks associated 2 channels, but 7 other channels have earnings but no clicks.
Any clues on what this means?
Thanx in advance.
the current days reports can be off a little, they match up after the next day starts, someone said that G use several servers for the different areas, and they are not in sync sometimes.
Also, image ads don't show clicks, but earn based on impressions.
I don't use image ads. I could be wrong, but I got the feeling my site being down threw something off, I guess I'll know tomorrow after the dust settles.
Thanx for the reply.

You may be showing CPM ads so you see earnings but no clicks. The above is a misconception - CPM ads come in BOTH text and images, and image ads can be BOTH CPC and CPM depending on the advertiser. Check if you are showing "PSA-like" text ads that fill the entire ad unit, those are CPM ads.
When did this start? I don't remember checking anything for CPM ads and since the 20th been making a small fortune for NO clicks. I was just looking over the reports for the past week and seeing all this extra in the earnings.
In addition clicks are coming out to $6+ per click as well. Is this smart pricing in play? IF SO, I LIKE IT.
Site targeted CPM ads program was in beta around April, but it was available only to select marketers. It was then expanded around June 20 to all advertisers.
