Thing is ..he used to be in the "UPS club" ..with the same site..the adsense showing on the B2B ( actually given the size of his operation A2B would be a better description :) used to be of the B2C type..
ie .. he sells his products in bulk to businesses via his site..with full very detailed product descriptions, images etc he is the "bible site", the "world reference" for the products..the adsense used to be 98% his customers ads to their business or residential customers..
Perfect targeting..relevant, happy advertisers and end customers of those advertisers..everyone wins..high adsense earnings..
Then G went "personalised"..adsense feeds site irrelevant non contextual ads..
Adsense revenue goes into steady decline..
Ad to that he is being scraped to beyond and back, and that G places the scrapers higher than him for his own content..
Far too complex to deal with worldwide sellers of product for which you are the suppliers of their wholesalers or distributors directly to sell them ad space..
Adsense going non contextual and personalised hit many sites like that..
HP may join in, but I think I've pretty much described it ..even though he doesn't know I've been doing so "unauthorised"..:) while he is no doubt "sinking a few" and listening to some good music..:) and I'm burning the family dinner typing this , nearly 1000 kms south of him, in another country..:)
btw..rewriting content and or product descriptions etc is out of the question, you can't rewrite 2+2=4 to be 2+2=5 and keep any credibility with mathematicians if you were a math site..and he is still the go to reference for the "trade" and for those involved in the field one of my businesses , which is where and how I found his sites over 10 years ago..
