Must be possible, since it happened ;)

Sometimes the numbers are out of whack. Give it time and it will sync.

That's pretty good. An infinite CTR. Now as long as make infinite earnings, you'll be in good shape.

Whatever your secret is, don't share it with others.

I was being facetious. Click-thru-rate is defined as clicks per impression. If you get 3 clicks and 0 impressions, that's an infinite click-thru-rate. Simple math.

Of course, your scenario's impossible, unless there's something screwy with either the number of clicks, the number of impressions, or both.

i think scenario is easily possible ... page with ads is displayed on monday 23:59 (so impression is counted to monday) ... i return to my computer on tuesday 0:01, view loaded page and click the ad (so click is counted to tuesday) ... yes .. and it's my competitor ad which i want to get booted out of adsense so i click the ad 3 times

Thanks in advance.

last part was a joke ... main point was that impression and click can theoretically occur in two different days because there is a delay between ad displaying (impression) and click

Regarding the joke, that's actually not true. 3 divided by 0 is not infinity; it is undefined (there is no answer). A quick Google search on the matter brings me to [mathforum.org...] where you can read more if you wish :)

newads, relax!

No numbers to worry about. Have they normalized now?

btw don't post any specifics like # of impressions, clicks, ctr etc unless you want te be booted. Is against AdSense TOS.
