April 2012 AdSense Earnings & Observations

   
4:07 pm on Apr 1, 2012 (gmt 0)



March was one heck of a roller coaster ride for me and many others, let's hope they've ironed out whatever it is they've been attempting to do!

Want an April 2012 AdSense Earnings Observation? My revenue for April 1st was lower than ANY one day of March 2012.

I have major sites sections DOWN 97% from 2010. Luckily some new sections and others added some back in so the overall loss is only about 78%. It seems like things were going fairly well a few years ago. Why mess with it and I don't see how it can be helping any companies involved.

And some other ad revenues I have? Pretty much the same as 2010 and 2011. Adsense is the only thing that has been tanking.

Yesterday started off fantastic, and the day continued with a healthy number of clicks, but I've woken up to one of my worst overall days' earnings in the past month or two.

Yep, same here... then died.
Worse day this year by far, and for a monday, too. Monday is normally one of the best days of the week for me.

Same here!
Thought it was going to be a good day for a change, but it turned into a "meh" one.

Things are really bad, more than 1000 uniques on site and just two clicks?!

Worst monday for a long time! Whenever I do some drastic changes (blocked thousands of ads with the new manager) this happens. And today seems to be even worse.

Hahaha...I've not even earned 50 cents so far, the days of 15 Dollars an hour for me are well gone...assigned to the annals of history:-)

Look, we all know something is almighty wrong at G, we've only just started the third day of April and already there have been 109 posts on the Google SEO News and Discussion Forum. At this rate it'll be going past 1,500 posts for a month!

Is it time there was an investigation into this company that wields so much influence or do we just let it die at the hands of its own incompetence?

My average click count is down now to about 1/4 of what it was in 2010.

I have the time frame on my account set to show stats for today, and twice now I've logged in and it was set for the last 30 days. Made me think that someone else was accessing my account. Not cool.

Yesterday was best day of the year so far, today off to a good start. Tomorrow who knows :)

Oh great G, so far not ONE click from the USA today, zero, nothing...this thing is completely broken for me.

A question to the people that are complaining about earnings.

Do you create your own 100% original content or so you "reuse" other people's content?

6:36 pm on Apr 3, 2012 (gmt 0)



100% own original content since 1993, all text, all images, even my own CSS template design.

Yes, straight from my own brain. Maybe that's my problem ;)

100% original.

Maybe that should change...

Just got a message on Webmaster Tools about another of my sites having a 'significant decrease in traffic', which is a shame. On top of that my primary earning website is back to April 2011 earnings. All the improvements of the past six months appear to have disappeared.

I've had that twice, recently. Both were for the same (deep-linked) page. No adverts on that page either.

Something is seriously wrong, but I cannot put my finger on why. (Apart from the totally off-topic adverts.)

I just posted this thread in the SEO forum about the 50 changes Google announced they made in March. Maybe that might shed some light? Probably not AdSense related light, though.

[webmasterworld.com...]

actually, I just posted the link - Brett typed that all out, ork ork

At the pub listening to drunks talk about sports at the end of the bar. Obnoxious, but at least their conversation is animated, unlike my AdSense stats which for most of the day have been all but dead.

Stats stuck?

No, the stats are not stuck. At least not where I am here on the west coast of the USA.

100% original.

I wonder if google can somehow tell good content from bad consent. Even if it is 100% original I wonder if it's graded in some way. The stuff I blog about I try to make interesting.

You end up having a audience that returns while you attract new viewers from the search engines.

I think Google has made it clear that they do grade content in many ways.

How so?

Would there have to be human judgement involved?

Tonight I'm working on some fun plant articles along with photos of what I'm posting about. How could google define an "interesting" score unless someone reads the items to decide?
