Almost exactly the same earnings every month

This is so unlikely something has to be wrong.

My adsense earnings usually vary a fair bit from month to month - not wildly so but, for example, from February to April last year earnings in the best month were one and a half times the worst. This makes sense because there is a seasonal element to both the amount of traffic and the sources of traffic.

Over the last three months my earnings have been the same to with 0.5%, and it looks like this month is heading the same way.

Any ideas about whether I should be worried?

Right on target for yet ANOTHER week of EXACTLY the same earnings as the weeks before. Need one more sale today. Ridiculous!
17 weeks since big drop (April 1st), now the last 10 weeks have been +/- 1 sale each week. If it's just by "luck", I should play the lottery.

How do your sales equate to Adsense earnings?

Exactly like the number of visitors that we get everyday: it is sometimes exactly the same many days in a row, which is impossible except if Google has set a limit...

I wonder if some people still believe that anything that happen is just "natural" or if most know that we are victims of what Google "decides" ?

nomis5 - there is no correlation. My adsense revenue is insignificant and is only on my blog pages.

I have sometimes thought it was a bit skewed but no proof other than the stats. I have traffic that swings by around 40% over the course of a year. But since late last year, my revenue each month stays within 10% of each month even though the traffic swings up and down.

Side note - Android almost looks more fixed as they delay stats by days. Despite traffic spikes on site which drives app sales, Android apps sales remain within 7% the whole year. The same app on Apple does as much as three times as another time period. So basically, web spikes to nearly, Apple revenue spikes to triple, Google revenue stays nearly the same on Adsense and Android.
