One of THE most frustrating aspects of AdSense is Smart Pricing. I understand how it is supposed to work however, yet again, today I see absolutely crazy channel EPC values.
For instance my best EPC earning channel, and I've mentioned this before, is a Coppermine gallery solely with trade widget images, today that gallery is averaging $1.25 click and has generated 37% of total earnings, all my other channels can only muster an average of $0.28 click.
These are sites ostensibly all showing the same advertisements in my niche and this is where G's credibility completely falls flat on its face...I spend years building niche pages with all the technical specifications, images and all the information pertaining to my products and they're worth $0.28 whereas I put up a galllery with minimal effort and they're worth $1.25 click.
Smart Pricing has never worked the way it was supposed to have done and if the above doesn't go to prove to AdSense just how ridiculously out of kilter it is with their perceived reality then I don't know what does.
My sites are where the real meat is, the gallery is merely fluff.
Now just where are those camera sites they've always given as examples?
