People are constantly saying AdSense is failing, going down the toilet, and of course everyone claims absolutely everyone is having these problems.
The last couple of months have been the worst I, and several other posters here, have ever experienced with AdSense since 2004 therefore it is understandable that they/we post and discuss about "What the hell happened?"
There are posters here who have not experienced this at all therefore why is this? Why can I specifically point to a couple of days before Thanksgiving Day when I experienced an almighty crash?
I'm not even a US site, I'm global, why would I, and several others here who experienced precisely the same thing, suddenly get hammered like this?
It's nothing to do with whinging and whining, it's trying to comprehend precisely what Google did since I changed nothing and my traffic has stayed the same.
Trying to dispel other experienced publishers' comments as almost irrelevant and not worthy of discussion is not what I thought this forum is about.
There's lots of people making money, but ask yourself why aren't they discussing AdSense?
Because that's the nature of many business these days and especially so with small self-employed ones, many try and keep their successful methods secret as long as they can.
I can assure you I have a lot of e-mails from people using AdSense, only a couple of days ago I received this:
"I worked my butt off on my site in December- optimising and making if better for my visitors; I've had an increase in traffic, click-thru etc, but earnings have sunk. Someone is getting a bigger slice of the cake, and its not the publishers."
This person and obviously many others does not even come to this forum, what do you want me to tell them, that there's absolutely nothing wrong?
