Now this really pisses me off.

Clicks :7
Earnings : $0.08

Can this be a google stats delay?

Could be 6 clicks worth nothing, one click worth 8 cents. Or 4 clicks worth nothing, two 2-cent clicks, and a 3-cent click. Or.... you get the picture.

Who knows?

No delay in stats here in the UK

In business sometimes you win and sometimes you don't. That goes to show that adwords is still a cost effective way of doing business online.

>Clicks :7
>Earnings : $0.08

If I were you I would invest the $ 0.08 in one apple.
I would eat that apple and count my blessings.
Then, inspired by this delicious apple, I would make a webpage about apples, how they taste, how they should be cut, how to make them shine and arrange them in a bowl.

As soon as I made $ 10,- with that page, I would invest it to buy a wonderful apple pie.
I would eat that apple pie... (etcetera).

So what's my point? Your lousy 8 cents can be the start of a great business! All of the keyplayers on this forum started with their first cent.

As the Chinese say:
Every journey starts with a first step...

Who said you should earn more for those 7 clicks?

Nothing in Adsense TOS for example...

After tax, you might have 5 cents left over. You can't buy an apple for a nickel (or eight cents).

My suggestion is to buy a single piece of gum (Bazooka?) and carefully unwrap the gum, read the comic and have a good laugh while you chew away your frustrations.

It seems there was some kind of delay because now the same clicks show $0.27 . Or maybe I got 1000 clicks but the clicks weren't updated. Scarry toughts my brain unleashes.

Anyways , really funny replies.

Could be some CPM ads that were clicked, which don't count per click but rather per impression.

I'm seeing strange things today as well.

I have seen several penny clicks in the early morning today - but even more strange, a couple of my channels that typically provide sub par returns are paying in one click, more than they usually pay in 30 clicks.

I don't understand it - I've given up trying. There are too many variables, and IMO flaws, to make any mathematical sense out of "smart pricing" or click pricing trends.

I'm just barely on the roller coaster these days.

The numbers to watch carefully are the ones with the dollar sign in front of them, with the month's total earnings.

Other "trends" can just be will o' the wisps, here today and gone tomorrow....

It could be worse, you could only be getting 1/1000 of the price of CPM for impressions.

hunderdown is right

smart price = confuse kids when they try to find out high paying ads and also adjust the earnings so you get what you deserve at the end of the month

They may use something like random delay :) . I hope I'm not giving them ideas.

The minimum bid now is 1 cent, I believe. I have a channel showing 3 clicks for a total of 5 cents(usual for that small channel). The channel offers free downloads of stuff I created. That's what they mean by smart pricing. I don't think I'll bother promoting that channel or creating more free downloads of that type, it's all about learning the system.

I think at some point we will see publishers have some power in the equation, maybe google won't do it first but yahoo, msn someone will..

And perhaps it will first be reserved for more established and larger volume publishers, but setting minimum accepted bids is going to happen at some point.

Of course when this first happens it will be a bit crazy. Advertisers will freak out because it will look like their cost to advertise has shot through the roof... It will look bad for publishers as a lot of them will see revenues drop through the floor as they set unrealisitic mimimum bids.

Once things shake out, it will be better for publishers.
