PSA's shown in countries where there are no targetted ads available to display?

Ehmmm, not sure what you mean...?

I think we should create a FAQ for all this common questions.
Ok, for your question, I know 2 possibilities: -
1. The clicks come from clicking PSA ads.
2. Invalid clicks

So why not try and find out without everyone else doing it for you?
Is it so difficult for you to go to the Adsense site where you just happen to have an account and there just so happens to be a SEARCH BOX...
Try typing in PSA!

Wow...an awful lot of snippy attitudes today...are we getting jumpy with lower earnings?
It can be downright comical here sometimes.
Relax guys- not everyone knows how to search beyond their reports page.

Actually, I did try the FAQ at Google Adsense.
And I did not post this question to offend anybody (though I cannot see why it's such a big deal, I mean, why bother reply if you're annoyed?)
Sorry folks, was not aware this was a flamers board...

I quite like the odd PSA add, gives your customers the impression of a altruistic touch. Well we don't run the Economist so I find it quite good in our sector as long as it's not ONLY them.

Is it so difficult for you not to post, if you don't have any information to contribute in a helpful manner? That is the purpose of these forums...if I'm not mistaken.
|I have put Adsense on my website and I wonder why I some days do not get any earnings, even though there are clicks (and they are not clicked by me :-). |
To answer your question: A PSA is an ad that Google shows when there are no suitable ads to show to a specific visitor at the time. You don't get paid for clicks on PSAs, even though they show in your account statistics.
This is the only reason that I can think of.
Hope this helps!

In case you wonder what PSA stand for, it is Public Service Ads

We should point out Google also does not get paid as they are donations to causes that Google deems worthy.

There would be chance of invalid clicks or the visitors might not staying on your ad as google states that if you go to a site and do not stay, then that click may not count.

A great thanks to those who give serious feedback.
That it could be PSA already crossed my mind and I noticed once in a while there in fact ARE PSA on the site, however not often.
Hehh, I guess there is not really any way one can be sure - the reason for my post here was to see if you guys would all point at one, two... things that I should check up on.
Thanks a lot for the response!
