I keep seeing huge drops in the current days earnings: i.e. it will say "XX.XX today so far" and then five minutes later it will be 25% lower.
Yeah, I think the "real time" nature of the adjustments is getting more frequent. I tend to see adjustments made in real time, at the end of the day, and at the end of the month. The end of day and, end of month amounts have gone down, but the more frequent real time adjustments may be the reason for that.
Less of a shock at in the morning and at the end of the month, but makes it a lot harder to know how much the total adjustments are though.
Oh yeah, a 4th type of adjustment seems to be the invalid clicks. But for me that's usaully nothing or a few pennies at most for the month.
I'm not sure why the "finalized earnings" don't include the "invalid clicks" adjustments, but they don't seem to, at least for me. I'll see estimated earnings > finalized earnings and then if any invalid clicks adjustment is made it shows up on the payments page.
(Hopefully I have the right terms in the right place here).
