Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I have another smaller site that is seeing the same 21/04 problem posted here. In fact that site has mirrored the same rise and fall in fortunes as some of the other posters here.
Anybody for a theory that there are two major categories in Adsense?
Here's what's the same:
Relevant ads (as far as I can tell - I can only see UK targeting.... anyone know if there's a way to see what is seen by a US visitor?)
Impressions (this one site gets about 3000-5000 per day)
Click through ratios
Any ideas what it could be?
I have checked Ads on my site(s) from where I live in Egypt, and from my dedicated server in Texas, US - no difference.
That might be an idea for annii on checking Ads from outside, AFAIK, there is no other way.
Regarding the problem, I can guess that Google has implemented a new technique that caused this major drop in EPC for some of us and caused also the 23th of April PSA disaster.
EPC is decent but # of clicks is small.
Anyone else still serving lots of PSA's on important pages? [ high PR, updated daily, many backward links from sites with similar content]
Thanks because Im sweating it out here.

To view your site as people in another country would, set your browser to use a proxy server in that country. There are lists of these around. I'm probably not allowed to post a link so do a Google search for "public proxy server"
My US ads tend to be a lot better targetted than my UK ones, possibly because there are more advertisers.
