I removed the top leaderboard ad on all my pages on February 7. I continued to slip badly throughout most of February (on some days my traffic was down 20% compared to last year) but now the tide has turned since this past weekend. I'm within spitting distance of last year's numbers which is good. Normally I go up 30% per year on this site and that growth rate seems to have stagnated so now I'm looking at other factors related to "thin" content.
