i reckon that everytime a new financial quarter comes round our adsense earnings go up. i base this not on any accumulated facts and figures, but on a hunch.

the newspapers are saying that countries are definitely coming out of recession now, and the next quarter begins in october. which is just a couple of weeks away. i figure that a lot of companies budget quarterly, so it kind of makes sense that september earnings have been abysmal whilst october's will be amazing.

so i thought i'd just put this here to cheer everybody up, because this time next month our earnings are going to double and we are all going to be rich and we can all go and live in the bahamas.

September has been the worst month in quite some time. I really hope your theory is correct.

I'd be reluctant to make assumptions based on a physical deformity, but to each his own. :-) For what it's worth, fall is traditionally a strong advertising season in a number of sectors, and I've already seen a sharp rise in sellthrough on the display-ad side. Still, we usually hear complaints about the post-holiday season doldrums, so enjoy your newly-found riches while you can!

It also is the beginning of the holiday season and despite the huge unemployment and other financial problems Americans are in, there should be some improvement in earnings.

It will be a good period until 20th of December and a very bad Spring :(

My problem it's the weak dollar. What I earn in $, I loose when I change the currency.

It's incredible...

I don't buy the "weak dollar" argument unless (possibly) you live in a strong-currency area such as the euro zone and most of your advertisers and readers are in the U.S.

My earnings started to pick up in early August. If they pick up some more in October, I won't complain!

Mine have been down since the start of August, and have continued to descend through September. I'm hoping the new financial quarter will bring something of a turnaround.

Well, that's me for one. I wouldn't complain if it was the other way around with a weak euro, so I just have to live with how it is right now.

I don't buy the weak dollar argument either.

There is only one common link for everyone whom has experienced AdSense revenue slipping the last several years...

LOL, I will tell you how it is.

EUR/USD was 1.4, and in a month it's 1.6, it means I loose 15% of my money. (now it's 1.47 and rising)
When the expenses are over 200 000 USD/month, do the math... (top 500 site)

Also, take a look at EUR/GBP. It it's not funny for non-US publishers and I don't believe that we will see a strong dollar again.

Exactly.

@Edge It's not a conspiracy theory, it's just the way it is. :)

Mentat, it strongly depends on which market you target. I target a European market and get paid in euros, so the whole EUR/USD is no longer relevant to me.

On the bright side: maybe this is a good time to set up some adwords campaigns targeting the US :)

One of the AdSense network's great strengths is its ability to reach international audiences and advertisers, and--like you--I've profited from non-U.S. markets (even though I live in the U.S.).

For what it's worth, my average EPC rose 41 percent from August, 2008 to August, 2009. The dollar was worth only about 5 percent less this August than it was the previous August, so even if I were living in Europe and had to factor in the dollar's decline in value when calculating my earnings, my average earnings per click still would be well ahead of last year's. That's why I'm skeptical about the "weak dollar" argument unless (as I said earlier) a publisher lives in a strong-currency country but earns most of his AdSense revenues from the U.S. domestic market.

If it's only going to be a quarter, I might as well opt out for this period.

so much for my theory that this new quarter would see an upswing. my earnings are pretty much the same as september.

but i've got a new theory now to replace the last one, which is better... it's winter soon. which means that people will stay at home on the computer more, so this time next month we will all be rich!

And if that doesn't work out it will be December and that's definitely going to bring an increase in earnings because of Christmas. And if that doesn't work out ..... Better to live in hope than face the appalling reality of a future full of ever decreasing earnings.
