adventuresofabeautyqueen. Yes it takes a few weeks each month as we work with a lot of advertisers and rely on them to provide the reporting for each site.
>And if a reader clicks on the ads, does that mean more income?
It depends on which country the reader lives in. In North America and parts of Europe we are paid by view and rest of world we are mostly paid by click.

This is not a problem. It only becomes a problem if a site is clearly doing click fraud which is fairly easy for the advertiser to see.
