Sometimes if you get tired of refreshing your "today's earnings" without seeing a change, try switching between "Last 7 Days", "This Month" and "Today".

I've noticed that sometimes one of these views is updated ahead of the others - there doesn't seem to be any consistency - if I have left the view on "today" for a while and haven't seen any changes, I switch it to "This Month" and the earnings will have updated, and if I go back to "today" it is usually still at the early earnings figure.

Anyway, if you get impatient to see your earnings report update, try looking at your report from a different time reporting... :)

Sorry for the bandwidth increase ASA!

I have also noticed this...

I noticed this morning that a single click from 5 impressions had produced $20. Can this possibly be correct. Earnings for the rest of the day have continued as normal...but $20 for one click?

I posted something about this a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes clearing out your browser cache will help, or logging in from a different computer.

I suspect the caching is done at Google's end; with the number of publishers surely the account records are on more than one server, and updating all servers takes some time.

More often "Last 7 Days" or "This Month" has the more accurate number. If anything lags behind it is the "Today" number.

Just the other day, I checked my "Today" stats, and they were a number of dollars lower than when I'd checked them earlier. They went up again when I reloaded the page, so it was pretty obvious that I'd just hit a sluggish server.

Hmm... I don't know. Sticky me the topic and I will make a bunch of pages on that topic and let you know. :P

Wish I knew what page produced the $20 click...I've really no idea..Am I allowed to say that I'm up to double that now...or is this dangerous ground?

Yes, tell us your keywords you are using that are worth that much. I'd sure like to know! ;)

When i was running a webhosting business keywords were often 5-7.00 on adwords for good spots and upwards of 20.00 for the sponsored listings.

I just know that from paying those fees back in the day :) (and quickly learning to target very specific keywords and babysit my campaign).
