    So I have a few sites that just kinda sit around and I do nothing with. They usually make $1 to $5 a day. Today the one site made $19. At first I thought someone was click jacking my site but as I looked into it the CPC was $1 each. The amount of clicks seemed to be normal.

    Does this mean some advertiser decided to pay more all of the sudden?

    Should I expect this to happen more ?

    Perhaps the ads displaying were ads being displayed that were relevant to that particular user from their past searches and not ads normally displayed on your site. For example, if someone searches Google and YouTube for Car Insurance or Lawyers and they then come to your site, your ads will more than likely display ads relevant to those past two searches which have a much high CPC compared to the traditional ads that are usually displayed on your site which probably pay around $0.20-$0.50 per click from what you say your daily earnings normally are. This is just my thoughts as I've seen this happen in the past with my own site(s). I hope this helps.
