What amazes me is just how does Google keep earning more when so many long-term publishers report falling earnings. Yes, I do know some are reporting increases however if one reads around the general consensus is of falling earnings.
Do they have so many "small" publishers on-board who keep their receipts increasing or what is it?
My real-world business over the last, nearly 8 years v AdSense, has grown extremely well yet AdSense is, for all realistic purposes, now 10% of what it once was in 2005/6.
A simple chart extrapolation shows that if this continues in the same vein that by the end of 2012 my earnings from AdSense will be almost zero and completely the opposite to my B&M businesses.
For whatever reason it is AdSense is clearly not working in my industry like it used to, I've gone from a 6% CTR to 0.5% these last few days, yet I still see a huge amount of non-AdSense advertising going on, fairs bigger than ever, trade increasing and demand higher than ever but on-line promotion seems to be as flat as a pancake.
Has The Net matured to the extent that many people simply do not take any notice of "a lot of stuff" these days?
