Hello everybody.

I have a question to those with experiance doing big filter and design changes.

I used to have 2 ad units, 2 link units and a seachunit on my site.
I now want less ads but higher CPCs on my site so I removed the small banner on the top and all the link units.
I kept the 336x280 adblock in the middle wich made average CPCs of 18 cents and also hat the highest CTR

Beofre I had a few hundred clicks per day and furtunately removing the adunits with low ctr and cpc only lowered my overall CTR by 20 percent.

The poblem now is that the cpc of the strong 336 adblock in the middle ( which is now the first and only unit to load ) went down to 8 c clicks immediately.
A also cleared my filterlist, because there are enough placement targeted ads to win against them. Image ads are optedin too.

No Low quality or untargeted ads are showing up now.
( used preview tool )

Google says that it takes around 48 to crawl a site, but Im not sure how long it takes to re-rank the ads showing up on my site. How long do you think I should wait until I can review results.

Thanx and regards.
