You could get thousands of visits and no clicks...
It depends if the viewer is interested in the ads that are presented...Just because the ads are there, doesn't mean that they will get clicked...
if your page is about widgets...but the ads are about something slightly off topic...then they probably won't click them...even if they are "on-target" that doesn't mean they will click...
ask yourself...how often do YOU click on the ads you see? (I rarely click on paid ads myself...)
(Just my 2-cents)

my ads are matched up perfect,
but yeah, i guess i hear what your saying about people not clicking ads too often.
i always click ads when i visit a blog and see adsense on there though, it only takes a second, and brightens up someones day a bit probably lol. =D

investor101, if your site is new, it can take time for Google to find the best performing ads.
By the way, don't click on people's ads for nothing, you'll get banned. It just lowers the conversion rate for all publishers. Really, really, bad habit you got there and a great disservice to advertisers.

i didn't think that much about it, but i guess your right.
i just like to help the little man out like myself.

A couple of other possible factors:
Ad placement--if they are in the side column, they could easily be ignored. People tend to pay little attention to that.
The quality of your site--if people are finding exactly what they want to find, they won't need to click on the ads...

The advertiser may be a little man just like yourself.
Plus, the more clicks that don't lead to a purchase the more advertisers will avoid the content network - resulting in fewer ads and possibly less money for you.
