We detected the earnings drop by comparing the money you earned to a forecast for your account.
I just love this statement since I had one a couple of months ago after a DDOS attack. The perplexion for me was "the money you earned to a forecast for your account" ...
Does that mean the ceiling exists? I am expected to earn "only" a specified and limited amount?
Who is limiting me? My sites or Google scraping them? I cannot get more uniques if Google keeps searchers on their properties all the time LOOKING AT my unique information or images.
Here's the question that all independent image sites have been asking since January's image THEFT by Google from sites that have AdSense ... You have kept them on Google, you do NOT show any ads, in general image sites have lost 70-80% of their traffic.
Just how does this benefit Google?
My earnings are negligible these days, I've gone from USD 300+ per day to USD 15 (yes fifteen) & I expect it to drop even further. Everyone in my widget industry has seen the same ... I am confused to f**k, how the hell does this benefit Google?
I know the answer is that "no one" knows since Google hasn't a clue what it's doing other than ripping-off/scraping & generally mauling any sector it "believes" they can dominate even when they know absolutely SFA about it.
