Adsense Not Counting Clicks April 17, 2008

Is it just me?

I run a number of sites that get 10000+ page views per day according to adsense reports.

Today I see the same number of page views but 0 clicks?

I know for a fact (i asked a guy overseas to click on an ad on my one site for proof of this) that clicks are not being counted today.

I have never once seen a day go by with zero clicks.

Anyone else seeing this?

I have to admit I am seeing much lower numbers than normal, in fact my metrics did not seem to update for quite a while.

Let's hope for a click dump.

I RDP'd to one of my servers and clicked on a adsense link and it now shows 1 click earning $0.14

Maybe it's the nice weather and people are outside today ;-)

One click first thing this morning. Seems like page impressions are lagging as well.

Yesterday and today both down for me. I thought it was because they knew I signed up for eBay... :-)

So you clicked on your own AdSense from the IP of your own server? (In other words, the IP of the browser doing the clicking matches the IP of the site serving the ads.) I smell another "I've been banned from AdSense!" thread soon...

I wouldn't post that kind of information. There are a lot of Adword advertisers here that don't have a lot of sympathy for people committing fraud - nor does Google.

Whoops, another mistaken report.

It's important for many reasons to dive into your traffic logs and see what's really going on with your site. If not daily, then at least once a week. ;)

Guys I am seeing something very weird today.

It says 61 clicks, but just an hour ago it was only some 15 clicks. And I rarely ever get over 50 clicks for an entire day.

Something is seriously wrong.

I am seeing wierd things again today. Either that or my site is just getting real popular with people that do not like ads at all.

No, something IS a miss. My earnings haven't changed for three hours, exact same amount. That is absolutely impossible. Never happen. I don't go a minute without earnings, ever, not any day of the week, any day of the month, during daylight hours.

While my post say 11pm or so, it is actually only 6pm or so here. This problem is from 3pm to 6pm today, so far.

@LifeInAsia and @BillyS

For the record I said "I RDP'd to one of my servers and clicked on a adsense link"... of course it wasn't the same server/IP as the site in question. Nothing to do with click fraud... I was simply testing (1) one click to verify adsense tracking functionality... after 10000+ page views and no clicks which is unheard of on my site. Nothing to do with click fraud nor was it my intent to fraud anyone.

I have more than 1 server. Just wanted to clarify that.
