It's not a matter of belief. What I'm pointing out is that my traffic is consistent - the only thing that changes is how many impressions I use to deliver Adsense ads vs direct advertisers.
If the revenue spiked accordingly, it wouldn't be a problem. But given the numbers, the only thing consistent is the average daily revenue from Google, regardless of the traffic spike.
I have associates with sites where they see exactly what you refer to - when the traffic spikes, so does the Adsense revenue. But they are not on the traffic or revenue range as the site I'm writing about.
What's your daily average page views to your site according to your reporting?
I'm not trying to get into a debate about whether this is or is not throttling, I'm trying to understand exactly why this measurable disconnect between impressions and revenue is occurring, and if at certain revenue thresholds there's a cap - and if so, is there a way to break through that cap.
