Traffic seems to be the main issue for me. Thanks to who knows what (Panda, Penguin, the shift to mobile), I can see a big part of my earnings drop coincides with a drop in traffic. It doesn't take much imagination to see that if I had millions of page views a day that my current earnings blues would be a distant memory. Unfortunately, getting the traffic back up to even where it was in 2009 seems out of reach and that's very frustrating. Doesn't mean I'm ready to throw in the towel (though there has been a lot more swearing at my monitor!). The fact is, any site with decent traffic can be monetized. If there are eyeballs, then there will always be advertisers.
