New month, nothing new with AdSense, though. Thank god the clawback is just 10 EUR for me this month. Turns out almost none of my traffic is invalid.

Good month so far as far as RPM goes, but now that it is the end of the month and the end of the quarter, epc is dropping. The beginning of July is never great, either, so I expect things to be slow for awhile, probably until September when Christmas advertising starts.

My websites cater to a lot of students so the summer months, June, July, and the first part of August, are my dead zone. Still, Iím down 30% from last year even though Iím getting 20% more clicks.

Are the passbacks already disabled within Adsense? Maybe it's a solution to use Ad Manager and fill up empty ads.

Yes, using Ad Manager is likely the simplest solution. Note: it is the "simplest", but not necessarily a "simple" solution.

Ad Manager isn't a simple solution if you have more than one Adsense account for a site (working with associates).

Couldn't you just rotate creative, set frequency cap, and toggle off the default adsense fill? feels like it should be easy enough.

I think it's the best solution with empty ads and ad manager.

I don't understand why Google still shows blank space when ad is not available. They should always collapse the ad is not available. Site looks horrible with those big white boxes.

@MayankParmar, agreed! You would think that Google would have fixed the collapsible blank ad issue by now.

Agreed, blank space should be collapsed. If they can't fill, then at least don't screw up the look. Uh, sorry, forgot they don't really give a sheet.

Please how can I prevent Google from disabling my account. I have over 40k PV daily from search and my Alexa is almost 100k. But each time I make up to the limit and I'm expecting payment, I see noreply message.

Someone told me it's because of my CTR which should not be above 5 percent. Is that true because this new account I've deliberately placed just two ad units to keep it low. I've passed the payment limit and I've verified my address. I'm still afraid it may happen again, any help pls?

PS: I focus on high quality original content.

Do you mean you have your account(s) disabled several times? without warming? without notification?

Sorry to break in, but June 26 was the worst day of the year so far for me. Anybody else seeing similar results?

Since I'm a conservative politically, I'm concerned about Adsense shutting down or deliberately limiting my account. I don't express my views that often, but it would be pretty easy to discern my politics from tweets and facebook posts. Check out what Google did to the Project Veritas video (hint: if you're unaware of this situation, don't search for it on Google; use another search engine). Anybody else take issue with censorship?

@danibliss

Nothing to do with CTR
It can be 8% without any problem

@Sissi, thanks. Misery loves company. Sorry we had to meet like this.

@azlinda, yep, censorship will be the death of us all and our country. Google needs to be broken up. They have far too much power. DoJ has already opened an anti-trust investigation, so there's a start. Can't happen soon enough.

Microsoft Edge's strict tracking prevention mode blocks all AdSense ads? I tested and I don't see any ads!

Google needs to be broken up


So break up Adwords from Adsense? Adwords survives but Adsense does not since without Adwords there is no Adsense?

@ember, no adwords and adsense work together just fine. What needs to be broken up is Google's search mechanism. There's too much concentrated power in one company controlling 80-90% of the searches on the internet in the US (and probably the UK and Europe, as well). Basically, if they can control what we see, what we read, it's too much control. There needs to be 6-8 search teams with cross-platform capability and a series of checks and balances. I'm by far no expert, but maybe blockchain technology could be useful in negating potential abuse, such as banning or limiting conservative views, which it's well known that Google is already doing.

Google is a search monopoly and is dangerous to democracy and freedom. Imagine if you could only buy cars made by Ford, for instance, or watch movies produced by Disney. No choice, no freedom.

@Sissi, mine rebounded too. Ups and downs are pretty normal for Google, though I'd prefer more of the ups.
