    This Possible?

    Check my google ads this evening and well this is what it showed.



    Just curious about how this is possible, 19 impressions and 47 clicks seems wrong to me.

    One ad can show more then 1 text link, so if someone clicks on all the text links, it can lead to more clicks then impressions.

    Wouldn't hurt to contact them and let them know you spotted it and don't want to get penelized for any mistake or anyone who may be trying to saboutage your site by doing 'click fraud' on your site...

    On a side note, I noticed you were playing on PokerStars at the time of the photo. I just finished interviewing Lee Jones for one of my sites. Interview should be up in a few days

    I would say you need to stay in the network more than you NEED $4.11 :/

    In the past google sometimes updated the impr. slowly while clicks updated quickly so this may be a reason but this hasn't happened to me in a LONG time..

    Perhaps somebody just loaded the page and opened the links on new tabs, repeatedly. Who knows. Maybe somebody wanted to kick you out of adsense.

    I'd wait until tomorrow, then look at your final stats for today. It could just be a incomplete timing/reporting issue within the active day.

    If your CTR stays over 100%, something is definately not right. Hopefully, you'll be able to get this cleared up with Adsense.

    Try viewing per ad unit. If you have a extremely high CTR rate then as well, you definitely need to contact Google. I also sometimes get something similar to this, but not in the 100+ CTR. After a while it seems to even out though.

    My CTR on per page basis keeps being in the double digits, but per ad unit it stays to more reasonable levels.
