I made a mistake while redesigning my site.
I was optimising my ads, with success. However they were optimised a little too well on the front page, with a triple the normal CTR (up nearish 10%), I think the people believed the ads were content they were looking for in the site, and sharply hit back, leading to poor conversion rates for the advertisers (Real Estate search related~)
My earnings have dropped massivly (1/5th of what they were earning weeks previously.) Which leads me to believe I have been smart-priced.
I have subsequently removed all ads, off my index page in hope to achieve a better EPC
-- What would be the best way to remedy this situation? Leave it a week, in hopes adsense updates my Smartpricing? Remove all the ads off the entire site for a week/ days? It's already been a couple of days of abysmal earnings
