Question about invalid traffic and current balance.

For the month of march I saw a big difference (large deduction) between 'Estimated Earnings' and the 'Finalized Earnings'.

However, the invalid traffic section of my Transaction History showed only a relatively small amount for that month.

So my question is what accounts for the rest of the deduction, other then invalid activity (which as noted was small)?

The invalid traffic section in the transaction history is only a small part of the invalid traffic. This number is the traffic that is pointed as invalid after they calculated the finalized earnings.

So most of the invalid traffic is removed during the day and when the finalized earnings are calculated at the end of the month.

I had the same issue for March finalized earning. Invalid activity was small for me too.

Initially I though it would be resolved because my account's reporting currency was recently changed from Euro to Dollars.

I thought they were not getting the conversion right yet but it remained that way.

March was a HUGE month for invalid activity across the board. You might want to read this item:

Invalid activity is adjusted for in three different ways:

1. In almost real-time. You will see clicks and earnings taken away seconds or minutes after they are accrued

2. At the end/beginning of the month. Deductions are made and your estimated earnings turns into a finalized earning to be deposited before the end of the month.

3. Between payments. This is deductions you will see on your payment page that are completely different from either (1) or (2) above.
