With the introduction of Google's new image layout I feel this could be a very trying month for many.

Come to Colorado in the U.S. We have lots of snow, although not this year.

What's going on with AdSense?

Through Feb 10th I was having the best month ever, then on Monday (usually my best day) all went down to !@#$%, specially the CTR and CPC.

There is no consistency. It doesn't make any sense, no holidays, nothing change on the site, nothing. It's like some one on AdSense said: this site is making too much money turn off the dial so the CTR and CPC is lower.

Long gone are the days of AdSense consistency for me, however I suppose I could write their one consistency these days IS their inconsistency!

HP, we've long been consigned to the dust bin of "has been - now - minor players".

Care to speculate how many AdSense accounts exist today compared to June, 2003 when I first started out with AdSense?

Care to speculate how many big time players are now in the market, nearly every online newspaper has an account? I'm surprised Apple and Microsoft don't have accounts.

Mine was going exceptionally well too, until around the 10th/11th of Feb, and now it's plummeted.

Something strange is going on.

I think in 2003 I worked out by cheque numbers that there were about 45,000 accounts however today Google gives us an approximation on the log-in page:

Watch the video tour and learn why over 2 million publishers of all sizes worldwide are using AdSense.


Just how accurate that is I have no idea.

Oh dear oh dear, just checked yesterday's stats and my largest image gallery's Page Views were 45.4% of 2013's average and my second-lowest day of the year!

Since the new "Bing-like" introduction my second-largest gallery has averaged 34.8% of Page Views and so it goes on with the earnings down by similar amounts however I do have one site, my third-largest and the one I shall be expanding, it has lost no traffic whatsoever. Every image on that specific site has been watermarked from day 1, interestingly I also have a small UK-focussed site with watermarked images and that traffic etc is unchanged.

I have no idea what Google thinks it's getting out of reducing traffic to image sites by this introduction but it clearly is not working insofar as my sites are concerned.

Looks good today, I see they have renamed a category, it is called "Black Magic" now. This sounds satanic, maybe we should ask some demons about our future with AS ;)

I'm blocking this now, not really a friend of satan.

Test the "Black Magic" category then it will probably work again with the help of satan ;)

Nope, doing no good at the races? Whinge and win. Doing no good at the raffle? Whinge and win.

Works every time. Almost. Good OZ expression - if you're old enough to remember.

I had some new 2013 records set on Saturday!

Lowest earning's day of the year at 46.5%
Lowest click day of the year at 46.8%
Lowest CTR of the year at 65.1%
Lowest eCPM at 65.4%
4th Lowest click volume of the year at 71.1%

WooHoo EPC 100%

Until last Sunday all seemed to be going ok however since denying Google images "View Original Image" it's slowly gotten worse and worse.

I'm going to give it a few more days to see if things improve now I have my 403s re-directed to their appropriate galleries however if they don't then this is AdSense removal level and a complete blockage of Google.

@HuskyPup

Sorry to hear it, thought you were doing ok with AdSense. I don't have an image site, but have been clobbered by Panda, Penguin and EMD. I'm doing what I can to offset the Google traffic loss via Facebook and Twitter, but it's a long ways off. At this point, traffic would have to multiply many times over for me to even conceive of earning what I did in 2009. Crazy.

Earnings had definitely improved until last weekend when I introduced my no tolerance policy with Google and introduced 403 Forbidden pages. I noticed reducing traffic during the week therefore on Thursday/Friday I re-directed the 403s to their applicable pages.

Several sites are now down by 50% and a few are completely average nevertheless it is plainly obvious that overall the new Google image SERPs is a disaster not only for me but many others I have been reading about.

And as for them promoting scrapers to the top of the pile and removing the original images, well, it beats me that Bing can recognise them however Google with all its so-called boffins, haven't a clue.
