Here come the holidays to mess things up ... for some of us.

I recently removed most of my media.net adverts of my main website and replace them with a responsive link unit. The last two months with media.net have see me earn less than the $100 payment threshold. However, May's earnings were I think $73 and June's earnings were $69. Obviously those two figures add up to more than $100 so can I expect to get paid at the end of August?

There's a fixed gap of 2000-2500 every day on AdSense page views when compared with Analytics, StatCounter. Where the views is 4000, 2000 will be counted on AdSense. When views is 10000, 7700-8000 will be counted on AdSense.

Why? :/

Adblockers, most likely.

Damn. AdRecover wants 100K views a day. Anyone know any way to combat against AdBlocker?

Quite a good day yesterday. Putting a responsive ad unit between paragraphs of text on all my articles seems to have been a good move. If earnings carry on as they are I will exceed last month by quite a few quid. I finally managed to get one of my main keywords above my nearest rival on Google and it's amazing how much difference it makes. People are obviously clicking on the first couple of links before they moved down the page.

July is so far a disaster for me (The Netherlands and Germany)
Earnings are 50% decreased, compared to last year of July (even a bad month)
Today RPM 0.60, lowest ever.

Yes, July has been frightful so far. It's a bad month for me anyway as my traffic disappears, however this year the traffic slump has been joined by a slump in clicks and EPC. Ad quality and fill rate are both terrible. Things may pick up mid-July. If they don't then this is shaping up to be my worst month since joining Adsense.

Agreed with the above. Some networks are picking back up and Adsense seems to be around 40-50 a day off where it should be.

What's worse is that in July we seem to be getting an obscene amount of spam referral traffic.

I agree. July looks bad, so far. My manager told me his all clients are reporting low CPC, RPM since 1st of July.

The other bad thing is my site was hacked. I believe my organic traffic will vanish in the coming days :(

So far July isn't looking too bad, if it carries on I will definitely beat June's earnings. However, I am down quite a bit on this time last year. But I've got a lot of faith in my new layouts and my click through rate is 1.5% has never been so high as it is today. In fact, it seems to be getting better every two or three days. My page RPM is at 2 as well today.

Hi everyone, I think it's normal especially if you run entertainment websites and most of your users are students from the USA or Europe currently on vacation.

Yes, Media.Net has always been on time. And if two months together meet the threshold, your May earnings will be added to June's, and they will pay you both. :)

Earnings are slightly higher than they normally are at this time of the day. However, that's only because I had one decent click of a 300 x 250 ad on my forum.

Absolutely abysmal for me at the moment - the RPM for my busiest site is now at 30x lower than it has been all year.

Yes, plumbing new depths here. CTR under 0.5% and RPM well under $A1.00. Being well and truly done over.

That's what I'm looking at also on my busiest site.
This is where I would like to be able to set a floor price and just show no ads when there are no decent ads to show.
Ideally, I would be able to collapse the empty space, which is why I'm not using DFP for this site.

Anyone know of a way to collapse the empty space of a DFP ad when there is no ad to display?

I notice the Google Publisher Toolbar extension for Chrome has been busted the past couple days - for anyone else?

@Glitter I was thinking of the same lines with AdSense. I would like to stop AdSense showing to my members on all articles. It is easy to do on the forum because I have the facility on the modules that are used to display my AdSense . However, I have quite a few 300 x 250 ad units that are embedded within the text. I suppose there's probably some code you can use, but the chances are I will be left with a horrible space within the article which will look ugly.

glitterball, there's an option to collapse empty divs when you generate the code for the DFP tags. It's a simple instruction you can add at the end of the header portion, like this.

googletag.pubads().collapseEmptyDivs();

miserable, but full of garbage and aggressive green download ads.

block this:


filmstab.com
torrentware.com
viral-streaming.com
vixplayer.com
fungusfreeoffer.com

Earnings and ad quality are so pitiful at the moment that I am unblocking some of the sensitive content categories for a couple of days. No particular reason except curiosity about whether they'll arrest the decline.

Mentat, Blocking is not a permanent solution. Google should act. For me, Adsense shows download ads on articles which have nothing to do with the download. They don't show download ads on articles that are on download like ISOs, lol.

Thanks for that, but how do I create a completely empty creative that will collapse the ad space?

Perhaps my logic is flawed, but surely I need to create a line item that will set the floor price for ads to serve?
In which case, how do I create a completely empty ad creative that will collapse?

Just when you think you have blocked all the download ads ----- there is more. After all, everyone needs a useless toolbar on their browser.
