No, most of my custom channels are set for targeting. Have been for years.

And are you getting $10+ per click for years without advertisers charging back or claiming invalid clicks every chance they get?

No, I've had targeted channels for years as well without any issues.

I regularly get $4-9/click insofar as I can tell (when it gets busy, it's hard to pick out individual clicks, but overall my average EPC is very high)
I don't get many invalid clicks, no. It's usually less than five bucks a month. Although now of course, since they're taking them out completely, I won't know how much going forward.

Nothing changed when I changed to targeting.
I don't even know how it works. Do advertisers actually comb through my ads? How the hell do they find them? There must be tens of thousands of ads to comb through. How the hell do you know if someone picked your ad?
I don't get it.

I'm not sure what you changed, littlecubpanda. For targeting in AdSense, you set a channel for targeting, and describe it, and then advertisers come look for your site and specifically pick it to run ads on. For example, if I have a site that's mostly about Michigan stuff, some advertiser who wants to target Michigan people will look (in AdWords) for sites that target Michigan, and then make ads for those sites.

taking what out completely?

The invalid clicks - it used to be they took out the revenue but left the impressions and the clicks. Now they're taking out all three. So unless I'm monitoring my AdSense obsessively, I'll probably not notice when they take stuff away.
