Long gone is there any semblance to real time anything.
If you're looking for something that comes a bit closer to real-time information, try creating a custom report for Adsense in Google Analytics. I'm finding things in my Analytics reports (relative to Adsense) are way ahead time-wise. Also, I can actually tell, when a click is gonna get taken back because it won't register in Analytics even when it's showing up in Adsense. Almost without fail, Analytics has the real numbers while Adsense is bouncing up and down trying to catch up, sometimes an hour or more behind. I'm wondering if eventually Google intends to put Adsense reporting into GA altogether. Wouldn't surprise me but, then again, not everyone uses Analytics.
