What would you do with that information if you had it?
It's like being hit in the ass with a chainsaw, which tooth cut you?
If you knew, would it matter?
Did the traffic go up as well? Or it's seasonal and will go down towards the end of this year?
if I could also know which ads are showing up that are paying 1 cent a click, I could get rid of them by blocking them.
I could tailor my site to appeal to those advertisers, write more quality articles around that topic, etc.
You should focus on trying to figure out what traffic source and keywords trigger higher paying ads and work on attracting more of that traffic because that's how you make money in AdSense, not targeting a specific advertiser that happens to be paying more for reasons you don't even understand at the moment. Once you know why those ads pay more, in theory you can attract a lot more higher paying ads.
How can I go about trying to figure out what traffic source and keywords trigger higher paying ads?Look, you are not going to know what advert paid what. Even if you did, you only know what it was for that moment in time. Later in the day it may be 50c, tomorrow 10c.
Later in the day it may be 50c, tomorrow 10c.
For instance, you could assume that if you had a site about cars keywords coming about Ferrari's might pay better than keywords about Fords.Asuming the advert that was clicked on was on-topic. For all we know it could have been a fat-burning advert.
