User Dave clicks an ad, goes to an advertisers website, clicks away.
User John clicks an ad, goes to an advertisers website, buys something.
Now if you're the advertiser, each one of them clicks cost you $1, but John was a better click, cos you made money from him.
Now say only 1 in every 10,000 clicks is a 'John' the rest are 'Dave's, google gives the advertisers a 'discount' for having so few clickers 'converting'
That is smartpricing :)

You'll find countless (and endless) discussions of smart pricing in previous threads. Scroll back a number of pages or search Google for "AdSense smart pricing" and similar keyphrases.
What you get depends on many factors - most of them out of your hands! Welcome to the Adsense roller coaster. :)
