Incidentally, last month was my highest clawback ever, for the record. Not quite 10%, but still. On my lowest month's earning for years, they take the biggest clawback. Ah, well. Insult to injury. What else is new?
@Unshiny I feel your pain. 1- If they said that they have reviewed your site and things will be back today, then that is a good sign. It may take a little longer as the review needs to roll-out fully. 2- Use Backup ads, see the recommendations from Robzilla and myself in this thread [webmasterworld.com...] 3- Note that the "brand safety" may not be the only thing impacting your site, if traffic is an issue you will need to address that separately as it likely has little to do with AdSense 4- I don't want to worry you any more than you are, but today Google released Chrome v64 so the blocking of ads on sites that don't conform to the "Better Ads Standards" is in motion and the first impacts should begin to be felt in the next 30 days or so. Be sure you site conforms to BAS otherwise you may recover just in time to feel even more pain. More info here: [webmasterworld.com...]
Something is not right, I think. @NickMNS, @AZLinda? Any better?
I'll bet you anything I'm much worse off than you are. If things continue as they are, I won't even make the minimum to be paid this month. That will be a first time ever in all my years with AdSense. I will give AdSense until February 15, and if things do not improve, I am out the door. Perhaps that is what they want?
Just learned today that the Monday after Superbowl Sunday is the biggest "sick day" in America. Might account for down numbers today (for some). About 14 million people they estimate will call in sick today.
