Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
My earnings plummeted with each Panda update, down 50% and even more most days from what I earned just two years ago.

Get a free cookie and Google pen & note pad
I must have missed the Free Cookie the last time I went cause all I got was the Free Pen and Notepad. Still, I'm going to the next event in my city as I have nothing better to do that day. This time I will be keeping my eye out for that cookie!
OK, but is the drop in income because of AdSense, or because of a drop in traffic?
So which was better, the free goodies or the information you got? :)

Immediately after the presentations, people were called up for their one-on-one meeting with an AdSense rep. After my session, I looked up and there was hardly anyone left in the room except for those still waiting for their session. So even if you wanted to start a conversation with another attendee, it was not really possible. I regret having no opportunity to talk with other site owners.
btw, I asked why I had been selected for the meeting and she said it was on first-come-first-serve basis so I'm not sure whether it's a case of "not everyone is invited to these meetings."
I met with publishers while others were called to their one on one meetings.
And the rep I met with said we were invited because we were doing well with Adsense (a lot of people aren't).
If that is true than I somehow slipped through the cracks. I never made a killing like some in these forums suggest they do, but what I was making was cut in half because of Panda, which cut my traffic in half almost over night.
