Does this mean the MAJORITY of WebmasterWorld posters were killed off by the Adsense June 1 crack-down. So Sad. Ce La Vie!

Fairly unlikely, though I note that my main site is now basking in the warm glow of the fairly-crappy '#*$!' top-30, which considering that I don't profit from arb or run MFAs is possibly sign of a childish backlash! ... And considering that my daily marketing budget is typically much less than USD5, is a total waste of everyone's filter space even if I *was* an MFA!

I know it's too early and maybe it's just a coincidence but the stats for today are just starting and I've got clicks as high as $1.50. Hope this is the result of the house cleaning in Adsense and I wish this continue for the next hours, days, months, and so on.

As of today , June 1, Ecpm dropped significantly, although i haven't made any changes to anything.

As I write this, it's only 9:12 a.m. Google time, and it's the first of the month in the bargain. It's simply too early to tell what effects, if any, the June 1 changes will have on anyone's revenues (except for the revenues of the people who had their accounts disabled).

No noticeable differences in ads or revenue. Google, however, could make it interesting by saying how many accounts it 'let go.' That would give it a bit of context.

It is almost June 2 in Thailand. I have not even checked the stats today.

Surely we all know that one day, even a week, is not indication of anything when it comes to GAS revenue.

No change but about two weeks ago I experienced a 30% increase in eCPM and it's stayed there ever since. My conclusion was that I'm simply ranking better for a higher paying term(s).

Up slightly here, although not outside the normal variation.

EFV stated in the forever-long "AdSense Disabling Arbitrage Accounts by June 1st - Part 2" thread:

Publishers who have earned most of their revenue from MFA ads (as much as they may hate those ads) could see their earnings get worse before improving.

This includes ARB ads as well and I don't think people are taking this into account.

Couple with this, the fact that Google will soon begin implementing site-targeted CPC ads -- many site owners will probably see an even bigger drop when the "cream of the crop" advertisers aren't targeting their sites.

Yes, I don't see much if any difference from previous Friday's.

I have to wonder, if people who run ads on the bottom end of things won't see an increase, since a bunch of ad space will dissappear.

It's all about headline writing. Maybe Brett worked for the tabloids in a former life. :-)

Someone asked to have the thread split off from the previous two parts.

My original post was referring to the fact that there was hardly any posting activity in the Adsense forum over the previous 2-3 days compared to previously, and thus most of the prior posters must all have been MFA arbs who no longer had an interest in adsense... It was a joke!

Anyhow, as of mid-day I would not say our earnings were out of the ordinary. On the other hand I'm still seeing a number of arbs of the top# dot com "search engine" variety who are driving traffic via Adwords and redirecting it out via OTHER brand SE result ads. I guess these are still ok with Adsense?

I see 50% increase in revenue.

Compared to what?

- Last day
- Last month
- Predicted average for the future
- What future?

I'm foreseeing a 200% increase (please don't ask - I don't know yet).

Today I have like 60%-80% CPM increase.

For me this change became important. I supposed all those highly optimized MFA were getting many of the high paying ads on their sites.
Now, those ads are in my site ;)

No real difference in earnings, it will take a month or so to guage any difference. But folks, this 1st June thing is a dstraction, no-one knows how many accounts have been shut down. My guess is that's it's a minimal number and it will have no discernible effect. It's all clouds in the air is my opinion, what do you think?

ditto what Mohamed said. Good to see a lot of small, local very on-target businesses among the new advertisers too.
