My website is picking up in unique visitors and google adsense clicks are increasing over time, but pay per click is declining.

Rarely i do get 50 cent clicks and $1 click, but most of the time it is 1 cent and frustratingly 1 cent for 3 clicks.

I don't understand why?

You are in a low CPC market. High CPCs tend to be connected to site advertising the sale of something. The ads on your site go to sites where they hope you click ads not buy something.

further to Mike's post, I noticed you are keyword stuffing as well at the bottom of your page.

Instead of this you should say something useful.

Thanks for all your suggestions.
Yes, i did attempt at Keyword stuffing. I resorted to do this because one of my biggest competitor who always ranks at 1,2,3 on google/yahoo has done it.
He also attempted using those keywords with a font color closely matching that of background.

Again, that keyword stuffing helped me rank on page 1 of yahoo for several search phrases.

Please let me know, if you have any alternative suggestions for keyword stuffing. I hate to do it, but had to for SEO.

Send an email to Yahoo complaining that your competitor is keyword stuffing at the bottom of his pages. Yahoo will probably investigate and ban his site. Once banned it is nearly impossible to get back into the Yahoo index. (remove your keyword stuffing before doing this, though)

IMO you're not actually giving yourself much of a chance to earn anything since there are so few Adsense ads and those which you do have are not very evident.

Does your righthandside skyscraper earn anything?

It's a notoriously bad position and yours looks as though it's just been tagged on the side as an afterthought and I'll bet many people with small monitors and using 800 x 600 never even see it.

Why don't you try a horizontal adlink just below your main navigation bar within the orange strip then you'll have an Ad on every page?

Thanks for all your suggestions.
I will take them into consideration in our next code update.

800 X 600 screen resolution is not common these days.
That is the reason, i dared to go outside of 800 X 600 screen dimensions.

In anycase, i will try to strip that out and try an horizontal ad.

By the way, how did you guys get to our website?
I have only sent in sticky mail to two members, when they requested it.

Also, my profile has a link, but i heard it is not visible to others.
Just curious.

Thanks

I have stats still showing 26% of my visitors using 800 x 600, that's a hefty proportion!

Also, my profile has a link, but i heard it is not visible to others.

I can see it however I think it depends how many postings one has made...?

Conjo-,

If you are not designing to show well in all browser sizes you are effectively leaving out thousands of people who may try to visit your site.

Also, I would use Googles heat map for placement since using it can make all the difference in the world.

I would not wait for a "code update" if you are the owner of the site brcause you are losing money daily.

BTW, get rid of the bottom keyword stuffing before a manual Google review hits you as it periodically does all Googles' publishers.
