    Greetings !

    Does anyone know if there's reason/s why I am getting a lot of low value
    ( £0.01 amounts ) when people click on ads on my sites?

    Thnx

    which site? whats the nature of the ads? have you checked the typical cpc for the keywords that match your site?

    many variables here so need some more info before being able to give any sensible advice

    retailtimes // dot co uk for example. It shows some focussed ads ( e.g. the orange one on homepage - under the clock) but often any old tripe on the 486 one's at end of each article.

    not checked cpc for keywords, wouldn't really know where to start / how to find them

    thnx

    google keyword tools is a great place to start
    checking retail times shows little to no ad competition and a cpc of 0.20 with low volumes

    even though the tool shows a cpc of .20, I can't imagine many are actually bidding this so you're probably getting some poor targeted ads with very little return - kind of what i'd expect to see...

    It's because US banks gave mortgages to people incapable of paying them back.

    Maybe it's a CPV ad.

    It's not a cure-all, as Google will only take it as a "suggestion" but I found it helped in a couple of cases... You need to make sure that the content within the "important" part is single-themed, though, otherwise it won't help. Adsense works best when any given page is on 1 topic.

    click value is based on various factors. Like if the ad is related to some financial/insurance the value will be more. if its just about movies and wallpapers, the value will be less. More over it also depends on where the click originated. Like usually clicks from asia are low value.
