I am already seeing lower cpc during these few days? I think there is a cut down from advertisers, Is it going to be worse or its going to bounce back any idea?

I don't know if is recession, bu my placement revenue is 1/3 than it used to be.
Maybe a big advertiser is out, I don't know.

My niche works well when the economy is bad and unemployment is high. Plus we recovered from Panda, so Adsense is looking good

Agree with most posters here, it's niche dependent. I'm into home cooking and that seems to be a good area in bad times. If you are into electronics or similar then maybe there is a large mountain to climb.

My CPM has been much higher ever since last Monday, with the DOW crashed.
