Wow, thanks everyone for all your thoughts. HuskyPup are you saying that when someone links to one of my photos each time the photo is opened it counts as a visitor?
My site is academic/informational on a history topic but it's one that still applies to what people do today. That is why I can get good related ads. It's been gradually built over 12 years so my topics rank well and there are a lot of good keywords.
I'm thinking more likely it's that people are bored with text ads and maybe they just don't see them anymore. So I'm thinking maybe the lick of paint idea would help the most.
The interesting thing is that my Amazon book sales are still doing fine. I post books that are exactly related to each article and that helps. But I never thought the day would come where AsSense earnings would be down with Amazon.
