Again, thanks for the comments. One problem I face is that I'm not in the business of selling ads or even building websites. My business is completely "different", and that means that I can't devote the time and energy to a) keep current with tech., and b) do a lot of log anaylsis. That would be the path to go.
The reason I'm so negative about adsense now is that they took a "put code on and forget" system, made it complicated, and then, made it so you have to nurse it, tweak it, study it and so forth. If it was my full time job to make it work, I'd put in the time. But it's not.
One area of concern I have about my sites is that it looks to me that over the years, generally, there's less page views per visitor. Again, a puzzle that is worthy of in depth study via logs, etc, IF I HAD the time.
That could be because of changes in search engine results, or it could have to do with the site designs, some of which are quite dated and below the bar for conveying the right image.
Anyway, now that the income is so low, I can take the risk of updating lots of stuff that I've left for years because I was worried about losing income.
Explorador, I will check ids and such for hacking. I think it's unlikely a source of problems, but it's something I should do regularly anyway.
