when a bunch of forum members with yearly records of consistent earnings say that their epc has been slashed, it certainly is evidence that google is doing something.
You've forgotten that other publishers have reported the opposite experience. So, if the victims think "Google is doing something" to them, they should be asking themselves "Why me?" instead of wasting their time on conspiracy theories.
it's arrogant to claim that their sites are "less valuable" to google... you don't know enough about their sites, or about google, to determine why their earnings got slashed.
I didn't claim that, but the fact is that their traffic has become less valuable to Google in terms of EPC, eCPM, or whatever figure is being discussed. ("Value" in this context obviously refers to dollars and cents.)
for all you know, efv, google could have suddenly started doing it to random publishers on a cyclical basis, simply to pad the profit margin.
Sure, or the Devil could be telling them to do it. Or God. Take your pick: One conspiracy scenario is as good as the next.
