On Sunday, all of my sites (they are connected to one Google authorship acct) were nuked, dropping from 1-5 in SE rankings to 10-15.
Despite that, CPC and CTR remained good on Sunday, despite the lower traffic.
However, today, CTR and CPC are both significantly lower. This suggest to me, in addition to dropping in the SE's, crap ads are now being served.
I don't know what happened. Some kind of manual review.
Now blogs and goofball news stories and YT videos rank above my dot coms.
It's over. I'll make trickle of income compared to the day before from now on.
What's so disappointing is how much things were improving, too, up until yesterday. I'm finished.
Time to move onto something else, create new/different sites.
