Hi All.

On the sites I am running Adsense on my CTR since the beginning of September has reduced sharpely - The first few days Google seemed to be having some reporting problems but the trend has continued.

Anyone else experiencing this? - I have not made any changes to the site that would affect CTR and my Stats are now very depressing :(

CTR increased by 40% around Sept 4; earnings the highest so far since June - and we did not change a single thing in our site (no color change, no change in layout, no change in format). The only thing we are doing is to increase the content (articles averaging 600-2500 words) and putting Adsense leaderboard in the new content

CTR, EPC has remained fairly stable since the increase. No PSAs in my site, too - all ads are well targeted.

I don't think people are getting immune to text based ads. I am not seeing anything in my site to support this hypothesis.
