Hi RPquest,

 

The reporting isn't in real time so these will be updated shortly.

 

If you look at the very bottom of your AdWords account you can see:

 

"Reporting is not real-time. Clicks and impressions received in the last three hours may not be included here".

Hi purefuzz,

 

Thanks for your reply.

I realize that reporting isn't "Realtime" but I can honestly say that I have Never had a Click show up in my Campaign/Adgroup/Ad reports Without an Impression showing too.  I thought it was rather odd for a click to report before an impression.

After about an hour, the impression did indeed show up.

I was kind of hoping it would show up as a invalid click as it cost me $.60 without an inquiry or conversion Smiley Sad

Thank Again,

RPquest

Yeah, it's pretty unusual for it to happen but if you are early in the day with little data it does happend from time to time. Only if you are view the stats from "today" as well.
