Please avoid clicking ads on your own websites as Google can and will catch you and ban your account for ever.

I think his faulty English is confusing you.
I believe he's asking if everyone is feeling the pinch of SmartPricing in this bad economy.

I also earn very less in the range of $0.01 to $0.33 per click. I am seriously looking how to increase that to $2 per click..

Hi Guys !
Well I am a small manufacturer with an online shop, and an adwords begginer. I have found that the prices I need to pay to get my ads to appear are far too high - in the region of 70 cents to $1.00 just for a click !
So I have stopped wasting my time on Adwords. And when more companies wake up to the fact that they are paying far too much just for a click - not a sale, then there will be less companies bidding.
So I don't know how you are going to earn $2 from a click ! of course there are some niches eg finance and legal where it may pay for advertisers to bid 4 or 5 dollars for a click.
And of course for someone like me a beginner I may have been able to reduce my click bids, but there are only so many keywords you can bid for in any niche !

Digmen1, bidding on the content network is far cheaper ;)

It's too hard to chase the $2 clicks. I think it's easier to get eight 25-cent clicks.

Hmm, I think I will try 25cent clicks then. So, now I need increase number of clicks..

you can't just manipulate your CPC, it's based on your site niche

I am also hoping to get my EPC up to USD 10 per click.
Currently at USD 0.10 per click. But I can try, can't I ?

a) Infuse a bunch of money into the market and hope advertisers in your niche decide to all up their bids by a hundredfold
b) Build another Mesothelioma blog

Do these suggestions really work?.. OK , will try b and revert asap.

Price does not matter to increase the feeling now, the important thing is how to increase site traffic

Good luck, there are probably millions already out there. Come back in five years when you finally get a visitor ;)

O.K. added content to existing blogs with traffic.. Got six clicks for 2 cents.
My Conclusion.. Your suggestion 'b' does NOT work.
Gotta find some other ways..
| 4:27 pm on Jun 22, 2009 (gmt 0)|
you give up too easy... seems like you want the results right now.
you'll never make money thinking like that.

I added asbestos content to my blog and OSHA closed me down for inspection. Now my employees have to wear respirators when working anywhere near the blog...
| 4:49 pm on Jun 22, 2009 (gmt 0)|
O.K. I will bring down my expectations to 5 Dollar clicks and try again.. Thanks.
But If I still keep getting those half cent clicks I am going back to the drawing board and I promise to read various knowledgeable posts on webmasterworld again.
I am starting with these ones..

Hi! This time I click the Google AdSense the price is VERY LOW! :D I also feel exceptionally low prices.
| 2:48 am on Jun 23, 2009 (gmt 0)|
@Gone Don't click your own ads, that's an Adsense no no
@Green_Grass The fact that you could add any kind of random content to your blog shows that your blog/site has no focus! Why would anyone want to go to a site that is so random that you can post anything? You will probably get lower quality traffic, and hence Adsense will probably smart price you if they don't decide to ban you eventually.
Just my 2 pennies.
| 3:39 am on Jun 23, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I would also add my two pennies to those comments as well.
Does that give us 5 between us? Always added 2+2 and got 5
| 7:14 am on Jun 23, 2009 (gmt 0)|
We don't want the pennies.. We wan't the Dollars.. :-)

I presume Green_Grass is just being sarcastic. Chill :)

Since Monday, June 22, 2009 I lost about 20% per click in AFS. It is statistically significant. Did anyone with - let's say more than 1000 clicks per day (in AFS) - see the same?
Important: this does not affect per click for "Adsense for content" (AFC), but only "Adsense for search" (AFS).
Are there changes in the AdWords UI?
Are there more advertisers moving from AFS to AFC therefore lowering the bidding price of average AFS ads?
| 7:24 pm on Jun 28, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I'm pretty sure it's the same content ads that show in AdSense for Content as do for AdSense for Search. They're both part of the Content Network.

No. AFS can generate more clicks but pays lower per click. At least for me. Overall AFS is better performing and the nice thing is, that the look is customizable.
| 7:34 pm on Jun 28, 2009 (gmt 0)|
I have probably 60 sites with AFS and CSEs on them, ever since they introduced the program. It does not pay lower per click for me. I'm also a longtime AdWords advertiser and GAP, and I can tell you, there's no *separate* option for advertising on AFS. Perhaps you've been smart priced, or some of your clicks have been disallowed.
