    So ive started earning money on adsense.

    Some days I get a CPC of way over 1 dollar
    some days I get a CPC on 0,10 dollar

    Why does it change so much?
    How can 10 clicks be worth a dollar one day, and 10 dollars the other day?

    It all depends on the keyword that the Ad the visitor clicked on is worth.

    it depends on the amount the advertisers are paying for clicks, in addition to the ads that they're clicking on

    you can't get relevant data from two days.

    You need to average it out for at least a month.

    Ive used it for about a month, made about 100 dollars

    Some days I get 2 clicks and a dollar for each click.
    Some days I get 6 clicks and get half a dollar each click
    And some days i get 15 clicks and get 0,15 dollars per click.

    I just cant understand or see any consistency.

    How many keywords is your site targeting and how many different ads do you have on the site?

    When you ask me that,I have no idea what to answer.

    My meta keywords is like 5, and they are all pretty similar and related to my niche.
    I just use standard adsense ads, and for me, they are not even remotely close to my niche, as my niche dont have much ads, if any

    It's all about the competition. Some days it's high and some days is low for the same keywords.
