I have seen a big shift... down... since APril first in my rev from ad newtorks. Pretty well across the board. 30%, maybe a bit more. Coming back a little this week...

Anyone else seen it? ANy ideas why?

Hits are not down.... cpm is. So income is. Across the board- from Tribal, Google, Fast and 24/7.

My average cpm is down from March by 20-30%, hits and fill ration about the same.

OK, so some advertisers paused campaigns due to the Easter holiday, and/or due to the first week of a new quarter.

Don't panic. Yet.

They are coming back well. Still not 100% back, but I am not sweating as much.

Are their any good tutorials on how to optimize ads? How to place, which to have first, which to default to, how to increase $$ from CPM ads, etc?

Yes I've experienced a slight shift downwards for my adsense revenue last month and it could be the effects of the recent Google Caffeine kicking in. But I don't let that bother me as I just built more sites. You may like to follow a proven Micro Niche Adsense blueprint like XFactor that teaches you how to increase your adsense revenue.
