how can anyone say there was no loss of income when that 17% got replaced by 3.6% CTR and lower
I never said that.
We were not talking about loss of income. We were talking about CTR decline.
Adblock can definitely cause a drop in revenue but not in the CTR (statistically speaking).
Bill, like you, We are earning many thousands of dollars a month (from years), so our numbers are significant too. As I said, our visitors using Chrome and Firefox have a better CTR than visitors using MSIE, so I think there is not causation and for us neither correlation.
Bill, you should check the numbers on search engine users. I get much better CTR and earnings from non-Google SE visitors compared to Google itself
I agree with purplecape that's a good point.
