This is sad! Not sure if I can blame it on the bad economy and the financial crisis, or just Adsense in general, but it doesn't matter. I do know that my website still gets the same amount of visitors, in fact more, since we have added a few more sections lately.
Anyway, here is what is sad: I have been with Google Adsense since March 2005, and never have I not reached the minimum $100 to get paid monthly. There was times when I barely passed $100, but I still made it.
This month, looks like this streak of some 42 months of getting paid monthly, will be broken, unless a miracle happens from today till the end of the month (I haven't even reached $70 yet)
I need to make some $30 at least in the next 4 days to keep my streak alive, which I think is impossible.
Records are there to be broken I guess, but in this case it is a negative one!
By the way, if you are wondering what my monthly average is, it hovers around $150-200.
The only good news I can take from this, is that my payment for February will be a big one (combining November and December) :)
Merry Christmas and Happy Adsensing everyone!
