Separate Bids for Adsense Sites, is this affecting you?

Adwords advertisers can now place separate bids for search and content

Adwords advertisers can now place separate bids for search and content. In practice, this should lead to lower bids for content sites vs search.

However, this will also draw advertisers who have previously turned content sites off back in.

On balance I think this will be good for Adsense partners since Google would have calculated their bottom line carefully before making this move.

It is probably too early to report the effects yet but my Adsense earning seems to be up these past few days.

If I recall right the minimum bid for content sites is $0.01.

At any rate I haven't seen any big changes that I can attribute to this yet.

I think it's a bit too early to say, plus with the holidays coming...
However, I seem to be doing better this month compared to november.

I had an advertiser who disappeared last month. This month they are back and on the page that works well for them. My earnings from them are way up. The thing to watch now is to see if smart pricing will have an impact on this advertiser.

My EPC goes up since end of November.

December EPC is 28% above November EPC.
