I have a website Panpact.com and it has Google AdSense ads on it. A few months ago I posted an article on my page which got over ten thousand views. The impressions and views registered with AdSense but not a single click.

According to statcounter I did get lots of clicks but I know this is unreliable. Still you would think I would get at least one or two clicks. I posted another article yesterday and it has nearly one thousand views but still no clicks. I don't think AdSense is registering them.

What should I do? If it matters I used to get clicks back in 2016 where my site had a different name but I changed it and I hadn't noticed clicks since.

  • Have you signed new name of your website into Google AdSense ? – Jakub Kliský Apr 10 '17 at 13:05

  • In Google AdSense go to Settings -> My Sites -> And click the big + (plus) in the right top corner to add the website. Google may think that the clicks come on the older website and that might be the problem – Jakub Kliský Apr 10 '17 at 13:08

    It's possible no one is interested in the ads on your site. I'm sorry if that's a harsh statement but people online can click what they want. You might want to follow google's advice on placement of ads and make sure you don't violate their policies. – Mike Apr 11 '17 at 3:49

I've never seen Google AdSense not count clicks when they happen. If you are getting impressions in AdSense and you see ads on your site yourself, it is probably installed correctly. Users are likely just not clicking on the ads.

The problem is likely your ad placement. When I visit your site, I only see a small add above all the content:

Ads in that position are routinely ignored by everybody. To get users to see ads, they need to be in more visible locations.

  • In between paragraphs of articles
  • In the main column but to the right or left of content
  • Just beneath the content (great for articles because often users are willing to click on an ad when they are done reading)

Take a look at the "Show off your content" section of Google ad placement best practices. Here are some of their suggested layouts:

They also have a lot of advice about what NOT to do.
