"they've taken some money away!"
They do this sometimes if they determine some clicks are invalid. Better a little loss of revenue than a Ban... Don't you think so.
Also if you are frequently checking your stats, you may see the stats regress a bit, but they normally come back after a while. So you may have posted a little bit too early. Wait for a while and then check.
It's well frustrating being teased in such a way but I'm starting to develop a masochistic streak.
Oh yeah, go on, show me a glimpse and take it away. You naughty little Google you.
It's also possible that you're seeing numbers from different servers at different times.
A year or two ago, for example, numbers for the current day used to vary quite a bit depending on the view you looked at ("today" or "this month"). It also used to be common for numbers to lag by a few hours, with the server playing catch-up during the evening.

One thing I've noticed is that during the day the numbers of clicks will increase, but the earnings don't. Also, after the end of the day it takes some time before all the numbers settle down, so you may see adjustments after the end of each day. I usually do.
You can log in sometimes and see the previous statistics presented, but new stats on different reports.
You shouldn't regard the figures that appear during the day as anything more than a rough indication of how things are going. The figures can't be considered accurate until after the end of day. In fact, they can't be considered accurate until the point the EFT payment has been made and you have the cash in your greasy paws:)
I was checking my stats a day or two ago and noticed my income from about a week earlier had dropped by a dollar or so - I guess something was removed as part of a "service adjustment".
Occasionally during the day, I find that any earlier set of stats are displayed - this always gets sorted - often opening a new browser window for the Adsense report can be enough.
David-UK - quite agree - its nt over til the fat lady sings, as they say...
"With Google everything is possible! However you shouldn't be posting anything negative about Google on this website."

An interesting choice of words: everything vs. anything.
> the numbers of clicks will increase, but the earnings don't.
Seeing that right now :-(
It's days like this that make me not want to look at the stats - too many weird thoughts in my head about what *might* be going on to explain what I'm seeing.
I spent too long already capturing stats data into my spreadsheets - so that I can analyse it to death (and look at the pretty colours on the graphs).
Its even more of a wast of my time if I'm analysing data that, unbeknowst to me, has changed since I recorded it several days ago.
