Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
AdSense is a monetization product
I do not consider a 0.17% CTR as monetisation
I never understand that because when something starts to fail for me I don't sit around waiting for it to turn around, I look for other solutions.
NOTHING IS GOING TO CHANGE FOR THE BETTER ON GOOGLE'S END.
My prediction is when Bing hits about 40% US market penetration that AdSense will start to pay attention to AdSense webmasters but by then it will be too late
I look for other solutions.
