This is one of the reasons why I personally am seriously searching for different venues to make money online. Google is just too dominant and it's a shame that some of us (like you), who are honest and forthright and do their best to make an honest living are being kicked in the b...s because of what Google 'thinks'.
For the past 4 years I worked my butt off to get my site to a level that I can say: "hey now this is a good quality site with good quality content".
I write all the content myself from scratch (12 to 18 articles per day, every day - no joke). At first it seemed Google was awarding me for my hard labor. It took one year but there after I began to make real Adsense income that increased every month.
As of beginning this year, my Adsense revenue has declined month by month to the point that it is now 1/10 of what it used to be. I still write my own content, every day, I have not changed my site in any way shape or form and I still enjoy the same traffic I had before the drop.
Why then this obviously very notable drop in income? Don't know and Google isn't talking.
Google Adsense may be one of the better paying programs out there but they are just too finicky for me to run a reliable business with.
