@Cralamarre what actually helped me at this time last year was replacing poor performing ads with link units on high traffic areas, they didn't pay much but I got double the clicks which helped to compensate.
@allhearts, Thanks, that's good advice. Hopefully your January last year wasn't as bad as mine.
My problem isn't a lack of clicks. It's that the ads just don't pay very well at this time of year. Hundreds of clicks per day, plus all the CPM ads that pay just for displaying on the pages, amount to peanuts.
@Cralamarre I hear and feel your pain trust me. I added a few link units this morning and it isn't having much effect for what it's worth, I also don't want to cram a lot of ads into the sites. I know I have to give it some time, but it's looking pretty dreadful so far this year unfortunately.
My traffic is still down considerably due to the holidays, so I can't expect to earn a lot just yet. I won't see a significant traffic increase until next week. What's worrying me, though, is that my traffic is actually higher now than it was a year ago at this time, and yet so far, January's earnings are lower than last year. So, last January was terrible, but this year is starting out even worse. All of my additional traffic is proving to be worthless.
@Cralamarre Looking better at my numbers I am in the same boat, January of last year started off better then this one, even though my traffic is also up, lets just keep our heads up and hope that it can only get better from here.
