Google've added words "Estimated" and "Finalized" next to "Earnings" in the AdSense interface. These terminology changes don't reflect a change to the way finalized earnings are calculated. It's simply intended to give publishers a clearer idea of Google’s estimation of publishers earnings and what's finalized. “As you may’ve noticed in past, earnings on Overview and Advanced Reports pages may sometimes differ from earnings listed on your Payment History page. This’s because earnings on your Overview and Advanced Reports pages reflect initial estimations based on our records. We aren't able to provide finalized earnings on these pages because they still need to be verified for accuracy, a process that takes place a few days after end of every month. The finalized sum is then posted on your Payment History page by 10th of the next month,” said AdSense team.
