I've made zero dollars in an hour... Out of curiosity, how many pennies does someone make from one click of an ad?
I believe you will have to measure that in fractions of a penny everytime someone clicks an ad. Like Tom said, this is not life-changing or even day-to-day-changing money.
This might be a better way to think of this: You now have the option to enroll in a Newgrounds class: "Internet Advertising 101" with Tom Fulp as your professor. (As an aside, please direct any problems you have to your teaching assistant, PsychoGoldfish, LOL.)
Now, in this class you will learn that clicking on your own ads over and over and over again does absolutely nothing. Also a valuable part of the lesson plan is how you need to start thinking in terms of thousands of clicks. That means if you go about your day to day business and drive legitimate traffic to your user page and Portal submissions by creating good content, then you'll find the money starting to add up.
But you have to be vigilant. Thoughtful posts, good dialogue with commenters, and an attempt to make your Newgrounds userpage your home on Teh Interwebs could help you earn some extra pocket money. Anything less and you'll probably take a year to earn a T-shirt.
