As long as they're legit clicks, you'll be fine.

If you sat in front of you computer and clicked 70 of your own ads, then . . . Well you know what then. ;)

It's probably that the ads are new for your users so you got about 30% of them clicking because the targetting is good, or they were just curious about what changed at your site.

Depending on your content/niche, I'de say $200 with 30 percent clickthrough rate from 200 visitors is definately POSSIBLE. Especially if they're clicking the RON ads.

You may get some reduction with users clicking multiple times, which they must have if your sitewide impressions are only 200 but you got 70 clicks.

I wouldn't worry if it wasn't you that clicked them.

eslsociety, impressions are not unique visitors. If they don't leave after 1 impression (which, normal visitors don't unless the site is simply horrible), then chances are every single visitor clicked on one. Not really possible.

To me, it looks like a click attack. That is just too many clicks, especially for YPN.
