Imagine my suprise when i logged into my adsence acount today and saw i recieved 1 click and my income was 0,01 cent..

Please correct me if im wrong but isent the minimum you get for ads 0,05 cent?

Aprox 2 hours later i recieved another click but it still says 0,01$ Does it take time for google to calculate your earnings for a click although it already shows the click on my adsense page?

The minimum cost for an advertiser is $0.01 per click, but that doesn't mean that the publishers gets ALL of it. A couple of years ago, the minimum was $0.05 a lead for advertisers, and publishers usually got $0.03 of that. Now that the minimums have been lowered and things like "smart pricing" penalize poorly converting sites (i.e. - if the clicks don't result in sales for the advertiser, etc.) you may very well wind up with $0.01 for two clicks. Your average should work out higher than that -- substantially higher -- but the minimum really is fractions of a penny.

Thanks,

That explains it :-)

However. How does google know when someone clicks on a ad it's actually converting into a order on the advertisers page?

Google will know it, because an advertiser can setup goals, let say if the visitor click on the signup page, then if the same session go thru up to let say the signup thank you page, that can be considered as a conversion.

It could also be a simple clicking on the products and services page can already be considered as "conversion".

There are a lot of ways, depending how the advertiser set it up.

But keep in mind that all advertisers don't set up or define conversions.

i recieved 1 click and my income was 0,01 cent

And also with the recent bad data push I have seen a big increase across all my sites of 0.01 cent clicks the likes of which were last seen after the previous bad data push in May 2007.

I wish G would give us the tools to set minimum ad payments, I would rather not have the ads than this insult!

Ok bear with me please.

I just visited my adsense page and i recieved a total of 5 clicks. My earnings however are still 0,01 cent.

Now the confusing part..

Once of my channels say i recieved 3 clicks and total earnings:
0,17 cent
For another channel it says 1 click. Earnings: 0,11 cent.

But my total is still 0,01 cent.

omg im so confused...

Am i missing something here or is something just not right?
Besides the fact i find it hard to believe 5 clicks earned me a total of 1 cent i find it very odd my channels show earnings of 0,28 cents but Total Earningsstill displays : $0.01

EDIT: Sigh.. Ignore please. Seems the total earnings isent updated as fast as earnings displayed when you view your channels.

How does Adsense deal with these fractional cent earnings by publishers? Are they ever rounded, and if so, are they rounded for the channel, day, month, or the payment period?

I'd personally rather have no ads displayed than ones that just pay a fraction of a cent. How can ads that pay this little even compete? Theoretically, these super low-paying ads should only be showing up on obscure/noncommercial topic pages with a lack of other available ads, but from my experience, they are far more widespread than this.
