My earnings on my adsense sites have been way up since the start of September. October looks like it will end up as a record month for me. I haven't changed my sites in any way except for adding content on a regular basis. Traffic is steadily and slowly rising at the same rate as before, no big jumps. RPM is more than double this time last year. I think I'm just lucky that my niches are currently serving ads from advertisers with plenty of money. This situation has certainly given me the impetus to grow my sites and capitalize on the current RPM and to increase traffic for when/if it falls back down to previous levels.
Things are improving for my site. Not quite back to August levels but at least back to where I'm earning a living again. :p Search traffic hasn't recovered but the number of indexed pages is way up. Also CTR and RCPM are recovering. I have my fingers crossed.
Wifes account doing great, and one account stuck - stuck so bad I was checking out server speed and page loads. Weird how sometimes only one account gets a freeze.
Been a good month but not because of Adsense - because of direct advertising deals and Penguin/Panda kicking competition to the curb.
I new all the crap linking and article marketing was going to bite these guys in the ass someday. I remember being over at the "Weekend" Warrior Forum telling every one to stay away from any linking at all, and just write big blog posts.
I hardly check AdSense anymore. Pitiful and pathetic earnings due to all these idiotic updates. You have to laugh at the ludicrous SERPs. Better I don't cite any examples. All the time spent writing these high quality content has been a waste of time. Maybe it's time for me to consider other business ventures where I know Google can't control anything. What a shame to mess up your own search engine when things were looking so good before.
