Adsense for Search: 5 clicks, no revenue.

I enabled Adsense for Search on my site. Yesterday, I have 2 queries and 5 clicks earning $0.00

How could this be? Surely PSA don't appear in the Search right?

I guess it's possible if you're earning a rev share of a $0.01 bid... but 5 in a row? How new is the site/ID you've mapped to?

Ive written AS as well regarding zero earnings on search lately. They said it was passed on to tech team, will let you know what they say. Guess its not a universal problem or there would be more of us.

At one time, I used to do well with Search. Then I saw too many 1-cent clicks, so I removed it about a year ago.

I think lots of users must not click on the ad links, just use the search and then go back to the page they came from.

Are you using search to allow visitors to search your own site? If so then those clicks may be just that. It could also be that the clicks went to organic search results. I think Adsense only pays when your visitor uses the search box to search the web and then clicks on a paid ad.

I have Adsense for Search on my pages and they contribute about 4% of the total income. That's fine for me. But even if I earnt zero I would still have the search there because it is a simple way for users to locate stuff in my site.

Is there any good reason not to have the Adsense search facility?

I don't know about you guys, but AdSense for Search has been pretty good for me. It makes up about 10% of all my revenues from Adsense.

If someone does a search on your site then clicks on a search result as opposed to a sponsored listing, you lose a visitor and earn no money. That's one downside.

Are those recorded as clicks in the AdSense stats?
