Once again, I trusted Google's advice.
Once again, big mistake.
Five ad blocks per page, ALL THE SAME, WAY bigger than they should be.
Performance is terrible.
Since I hand code, and have no CMS, I am searching all my pages to try and determine just where I placed all the auto code.
Issue # 1 - In reports, all I can see is "Automatically inserted Auto ad code", but it doesn't say WHERE?
Is there some way to see WHERE? This would be IMMENSELY helpful, but I don't know how to do it.
Are we denied that data? WHY?
I want to return back to 100% hard-wired 300x250 ad code, EVERYWHERE.
I don't want to see "Automatically inserted Auto ad code" EVER AGAIN.
Issue # 2 - The Responsive ad code has the line in it, " data-ad-format="auto"
AND, it also contains the line " data-full-width-responsive="true", which has got to go,
because it blows right out of the specified container.
So, apparently, I must replace ALL my "Responsive" ad code, to get rid of all the "auto" ad placements.
I'm glad I saved all my 300x250 ad code, But they will probably just ignore and overwrite it.
Thank you in advance.
Let me reiterate.
I went from an average of $500/day throughout 2013, to $3/day today,
after vastly improving my site, and jumping through all the Google hoops, mobile, https, etc.
What used to be fun, has turned into a nightmare.
The little guy has been deprecated by Google, with a jackboot to the throat.
My Google traffic has been WIPED OUT!
And, to add insult to injury, we are now blessed with "auto-cr@p".
