Pardon me if this has been talked about already.

I am new to adsense and web development, and have been on adsense for about one week. I have a basic understanding of how it works, but perhaps not a great understanding.

On my first day, I received 1 click and $0.03. The next day it accumulated to 54 clicks (huge, I know). I have gotten more since, but my earnings have stayed at $0.03. How do the earnings increase if it is not by clicks?

Did you click your own ads?

The only thought that comes to mind is that it would be because of "false" clicks coming from yourself; if this is NOT the case - then I have no idea.

If you make an accidental click from the same IP, Adsense is usually smart enough to not count that click for profit.

I have maybe once or twice by accident due to the placing of the ad on my site.

Is there some other problem, perhaps relating to the eCPM? Because that is relatively low.

Are you sure it was only once or twice? You should never click your own ads. It seems like all those clicks were invalid, wether you made them or not. The thing is that is very likely that Google won't pay you once you reach $100 because they will audit your account and find those anomalities.

If you're absolutely sure that those are not invalid clicks, then contact Google about them.
