In the past : X traffic = 5 apples
Present day: 3X traffic = 4 apples
I worked very hard to increase the traffic thinking I would have 3X traffic = 15 apples, or at least 12 apples. On the other hand, my ugly site alone is making twice the income of the other sites even that it has X/3 traffic.
You could say I'm earning almost the same as I used to, but the fact is I have more traffic for the same, so it means I'm actually earning less.
I can not increase page impressions as fast as eCPM sinks.
Have you ever wondered why that is? you say traffic is way up however eCPM is way down - have you considered the traffic you are getting now is less valuable?
Have you done research into this?
The economy does not seem to have had a significant impact on my site's area, which surprises me, actually.
The search for alternatives is a hard point, my last incursion on that wasn't any good.
I'll second that. Tried a couple of the other big outfits that do contextual ads (UK based, so obviously not Yahoo or Live). They were absolute garbage. The ads were off by a mile and I figured my visitors would prefer the blank space rather than the meanless ads. Google doesn't always get it right (hmm.. last Friday anyone?) - but mostly they do.
